Patriot League Schedules (Pt. 1): How Lehigh Stayed At Home In November, 2012

Patriot League Schedules (Pt. 1): How Lehigh Stayed At Home In November, 2012

I really thought I’d have been over it by now, but I’m not.

Last year’s Lehigh football team, who went 10-1, was denied an at-large spot to the FCS playoffs, becoming the first school with 10 Division I wins to be denied the honor since the playoff field expanded from 16 teams.

How did this happen?

The most common complaint from some Lehigh fans and many other FCS fans was that Lehigh’s “schedule strength” in 2012 simply was not cutting it when comparing them to other at-large candidates like New Hampshire, Wofford, or Illinois State.

Is it true that Lehigh scheduled themselves out of a playoff game last season – and will this season’s Lehigh schedule make it any easier to qualify as an at-large team should the Mountain Hawks be in that position again?

56 Days Until CCSU – No. 56, John Gonos

We interrupt the countdown for a quick story.

As some of you may know, I’m a big New Orleans Saints fan, adopting the jazzy, loveable loser team-on-the-rise when I lived overseas.  When I attended Lehigh, one of my most prized possessions was a No. 56 jersey of LB Pat Swilling, member of the Saints’ “Dome Patrol”.

I wore my 56 jersey to a Giants/Sants game after graduation, and several Giants fans heckled me by saying, “What’s the matter?  Couldn’t afford a LB Lawrence Taylor jersey?”

Wearing Swilling’s jersey at 56, we find junior LB John Gonos as our highlighted Lehigh football athlete in today’s countdown.

Know Your 2013 Opponents: Central Connecticut State

“With a newly-revamped Arute Field,”, I wrote last season, “which will be able to hold upwards of 6,500 fans, Central Connecticut State will be looking to one message on their home opener against the Mountain Hawks September 8th: that they have arrived.”

This year, the Blue Devils repay Lehigh the favor, serving as the Mountain Hawks’ home opener in the first weekend of their football season on September 7th.

So what can we expect from the Blue Devils this season?
