As much as I sometimes regret to admit, I remember the group Styx, and I also remember the album Paradise Theater.
One of the songs on that album, “Borrowed Time” (today’s “Sunday Word”), reminded me a lot of how Lehigh is winning football games right now.
The song, buried deep in my memory banks, perhaps not gracing my ears for more than two decades, struck me after the Mountain Hawks won their second improbable, impossible, game in a row.
“Don’t look now, but here come the ’80s!” lead singer Dennis DeYoung croons.
“Don’t look now, but here comes the 2013 season!”, the entire Lehigh football team seems to be telling me in the same way, flirting with danger, converting improbable plays into huge momentum swings, twenty-point deficits into touchdowns, losses into wins.

For their end-of-the-season awards, the Patriot League released their postseason all-Patriot League teams for both academics and athletics, and unsurprisingly, Lehigh athletes put plenty of athletes on both lists.
Seven Lehigh athletes made the first team offense and defense: senior WR Ryan Spadola, senior OL Mike Vuono made it on offense, and senior DT Sajjad Chagani, senior DE Tom Bianchi, senior LB Billy Boyko, senior CB Gabe Johnson and senior FS Billy O’Brien cracked the first team.
Senior QB Mike Colvin, senior LB Sam Loughery, junior LB Nigel Muhammad and sophomore OL Ned Daryoush all made the Patriot League second team, while Spadola and senior RB Zach Barket made the more important list: the Patriot League All-Academic team.
More academic awards and athletic awards await, but congratulations on these awesome Lehigh athletes for what they’ve accomplished.
