2018 Bye Week TV Viewing Guide for Lehigh Fans

Are you like me - not all that sure of what to do this weekend now that there's no Lehigh football to watch?

Fortunately, there's loads of college football game to watch - there are games on Friday and Saturday to enjoy to scout out Lehigh's upcoming opponents - and they don't even impinge on College Football Gameday at Happy Valley, either.

Tonight at 6:00 PM Columbia takes on Princeton, Lehigh's opponent next week.

The game is being televised on ESPNU, and if you are subscribed to that you can watch that game (or the replay) on TV or on the WatchESPN App.

Tomorrow there are four games involving all of Lehigh's Patriot League competition.

At 1:00 PM Georgetown takes on Brown (streaming on ESPN+, subscription required), and Bucknell travels on Holy Cross (Patriot League Network, free).

At 6:00 PM Colgate takes on William and Mary (streaming on, free) and Central Connecticut State travels to Lafayette (Patriot League Network, free).

Other games of interest might be, oh, I don't know, perhaps, Ohio State at Penn State?  If you tune into College Football Gameday Saturday morning, you'll get a heaping dose of hype for that obviously big game on Saturday.

Other interesting FBS games happening this weekend are Army at Buffalo, Temple at Boston College, and, in the world of FCS, Villanova at Stony Brook.

I'd rather watch a WNBA game than Central Connecticut State vs. Lafayette. If they charge admission it can't possibly be more than $1.00.

LOL. But the Pards actually won a game they weren't supposed to win. In the words of the Allentown paper...they SHOCKED CCSU.

How To Get Lehigh Fans To Games, And Keep Them There?

You don't have to have attended more than twenty-five years of Lehigh football games to know it's a completely different world out there for your friendly neighborhood sports fan.

When Lehigh's Murray Goodman Stadium was opened in 1988, there were only about a dozen channels on the small, eighteen inch black and white TV we had in our dorm room.  Only two channels might have had "major college football" games on at the same time a Lehigh football game was being played live over the mountain.  (Notre Dame, the only school who had all their games televised, almost always played their games at 3:30 PM.)

Nowadays there's way more entertainment options on a typical college weekend than ever, and it's very logical to think that the increased amount of competition might not just keep students away from attending football games, but local fans as well.

It's not an issue confined to Lehigh - in 2014, home attendance at all FBS games dropped to their lowest le…

Fifteen Guys Who Might be Lehigh's Next Football Coach (and Five More)

If you've been following my Twitter account, you might have caught some "possibilities" as Lehigh's next head football coach like Lou Holtz, Brett Favre and Bo Pelini.  The chance that any of those three guys actually are offered and accept the Lehigh head coaching position are somewhere between zero and zero.  (The full list of my Twitter "possibilities" are all on this thread on the Lehigh Sports Forum.)

However the actual Lehigh head football coaching search is well underway, with real names and real possibilities.

I've come up with a list of fifteen possible names, some which I've heard whispered as candidates, others which might be good fits at Lehigh for a variety of reasons.

UPDATE: I have found five more names of possible head coaches that I am adding to this list below.

Who are the twenty people?  Here they are, in alphabetical order.

Trump's Disinvitation of the Eagles Commits the Cardinal Sin against Philadelphia - Slighting Them

Monday evening, less than 24 hours before they were scheduled to visit the White House, Trump "disinvited" the Super Bowl Champion Eagles from coming.

The "reasoning" for disinviting the Eagles - if you can call it that - was included in a statement released by the White House.

"They disagree with their President because he insists that they proudly (sic) stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart (sic), in honor of the great men and women of out military and the people of our country," it reads, conveniently ignoring the fact that no Philadelphia Eagles kneeled during the National Anthem during the course of the entire season.

I don't think Trump fully comprehends what he has done.

Certainly Trump probably thinks he is speaking to his "base" - the people Trump thinks voted for him in 2016, and people who think will continue to vote for him and his preferred candidates in the future.

But Trump's bottomless bad faith in "disinviti…
