This weekend, it’s homecoming at Lehigh.
The pre-football festivities for homecoming start at in the middle of Friday, with a campus rally, followed by a dinner and a movie presentation.
The movie happens to be Monsters University, the hit Disney/Pixar movie from this summer where the heroes Mike and Sully flash back to their days at old Monster U., and we find out how they made it through their college years.
It so happens that there is an associated website with the release of the movie that is still up – complete with references to the Monsters U. athletic program and homecoming
“The MU faithful were put to the test last year, losing the conference championship with a “Hail Scary” pass from Fear Tech. But MU is back this year with an excellent new recruitment class — including three top-tier high school standouts: Bart Gates (quarterback), Uriah Pemberslime (fullback), and Harry Phiegel (wide receiver).

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.
