How Will I Watch Bucknell At Lehigh This Afternoon?


How will you watch Bucknell at Lehigh this afternoon?  What a ridiculous question.  Like me, you’re headed to the stadium for a 12:37 kickoff.

Wait – really?  You’re not going to Murray Goodman today?  Why not?  Unscheduled dental emergency?  Flying in from Buenos Aires?  Need to find out how to catch the game online, by a video stream or online radio?

Never fear.  LFN’s here.

On New Years’ Eve, Lots Of Red Flags Around Sport of College Football

On New Years’ Eve, Lots Of Red Flags Around Sport of College Football

New Year’s Eve is supposed to be about all the good things about college football.

For FCS, it’s about the run-up to the FCS National Championship game in Frisco, Texas.  This season – again – North Dakota State heads to the party once again, while the No. 1 team in the nation. Jacksonville State, tries to be the team that finally harpoons the Bison to break their consecutive national championship streak.

In the FBS, the bowl games that really matter – the plus-one playoff teams, the four teams that could win their bowl championship – are being played.  Lots of people will tune in.  Advertisers will see a very strong return on investment on their ad buys for the game.  The administrators for Alabama, Michigan State, Clemson and Oklahoma will be entertained, and well paid.

Yet now, at the end of 2015, there are dark clouds on the horizon looming pretty much everywhere about the entire sport.  Folks are worried about head injuries more than ever.  The bowl system, with more exhibition games than ever, feels overstretched, and the games are competing with more and more sports entertainment and feeling diluted.  Even the revenue model for sports on TV feels under threat as more and more people cut the coaxial cable and media conglomerates like ESPN actually shrink in viewership.

College football was, and still is, the greatest sport in the entire world.  But many forces of change feel like they’re coming, and it’s making a lot of folks pessimistic about the future of the sport.

League Unveils Free Streaming Sports For All: The Patriot League Network

It was hard to know what to think when the following announcement came up on the Patriot League Twitter account:

Major announcement coming from the @PatriotLeague this afternoon….very exciting development for 2013-14 and beyond!
— Patriot League (@PatriotLeague) July 29, 2013

Out of the blue, there it was.  What could it be?  More (gasp) expansion news?  The pro-bono hiring of Jon Gruden as Frank Tavani‘s assistant defenisive coach at Lafayette?  Free sno-cones at football’s Patriot League Media Day, scheduled for this Wednesday?

It wasn’t any of these three possibilities, but it was something even better.

Now, any Patriot League fans with a decently-fast laptop, tablet or phone will now be able to stream a large number of games over the internet.

For free.
