It’s that time of the week where I share with you your weekly Lehigh fan viewing guide for Week 4 of the college football season. Why go to website after website when all the information you need is right here?
Last week I was remiss in forgetting to mention Lehigh’s broadcast information.
Tonight at 6PM, Lehigh at Princeton will be broadcast nationally on NBC Sports Network, and will also be available for live streaming on NBC Sports Live Extra, if your cable company supports it (you’ll probably have to check for yourself).
And I’ll be listenting to the pregame on ESPN 1230 and 1320 of the Lehigh Valley, too, with Tom Fallon, Matt Kerr and Matt Markus. That will also be live streamed here.
Lehigh’s next opponent, Princeton, plays in their season opener this Saturday at 6PM.
Based on the fact that it’s Princeton’s opener, as well as the opener of the seven other Ivy League schools, you’d think that the conference website would have plenty of articles evaluating the teams of the Ivy League, looking over offenses and defenses, checking out the prospects of all their member teams for the 2013 season.
You’d think so, but you’d be wrong.
I figured I’d share my experience with you, dear Reader, on my attempt to find out something – anything – about the Princeton Tigers from the Ivy League website.

A week after Lehigh plays on national TV (CBS Sports Network) against Joe Moorhead‘s Fordham squad, head coach Andy Coen will find his team, once again, making the trek to New York City to play football.
They’ll be playing Fordham’s cross-town Rival Columbia, who is led by head coach Pete Mangurian, on NBC Sports Network, as a part of the Ivy League’s conference TV package with them.
For Lehigh, it will be two big national media appearances in the media capital of the world in consecutive weeks.
And like the Fordham game, it might not be as easy as people might believe.

While the news has broken that Quinnipiac and Monmouth will be accepting bids to the MAAC conference and leaving the NEC in all sports, nothing is official just yet.
The MAAC’s presidents will be conducting a formal vote on the matter tomorrow, and until then, it’s technically speculation.
So is the thought of Wagner and Monmouth headed to other football conferences – something that seems fairly logical, should their moves to the MAAC be confirmed. The MAAC does not sponsor football, and while the Hawks and Seahawks could spend $250,000 in exit money and then re-apply for associate, non-voting membership in the NEC for next season, it’s far from clear whether either party would welcome the arrangement.
If Wagner is thinking about joining the Patriot League in football, what could that mean to them?
It could open up an interesting concept I’ve felt has been a missed opportunity for years – annual contests to see who’s the best FCS team of New York City.

Highlight reels can be very misleading.I'm not saying, dear reader, that Lehigh's 35-14 win over Columbia was bad. Not at all. The Mountain Hawks went to 6-0 this afternoon at Murray Goodman Stadium, in front of a pacing break crowd of a li…
