The term being bandied about the season in regards to the 2013 Mountain Hawks was the “Cardiac Kids”.
Every week, the Mountain Hawks would fall behind. Every week, there would be hiccups, issues, and heart-stopping moments, but most often would end up in Lehigh victories.
Most fans wondered: Could it be possible, would it be possible, for Lehigh to put the pedal to the metal against an opponent, to surge to a huge lead, go for he jugular early, and never look back?
This Saturday, the Mountain Hawks answered.
Lehigh scored the most points they’d scored in the first half since 2002, scoring on seven of their eight drives of the first half and narrowly missing the eighth. They’d cruise to a 38-3 halftime lead before the second stringers would make the final score look a lot closer.
In short, it was exactly what most of the 9,866 fans in attendance were looking for in the first Patriot League conference game of the season. Never trailing. Making the game’s outcome not be in doubt early. Winning.

We break down the Georgetown game – and we give our fearless prediction, below the flip.
It’s frustrating to try to break a team down when, as of Friday at 1PM, Georgetown’s game notes for the weekend’s games are not available. On the plus side, though, Georgetown did supply a short preview article that does provide a way forward with some critical injury information. That, plus last week’s game notes, provide something to go on.
Something that does leap off the page of that preview is the following fact: “Georgetown has had a combined 15 players from its season-opening two-deep miss 28 games this season due to injury, including four different linebackers missing at least two games apiece. “
Certainly injuries have taken a toll on Georgetown’s non-conference schedule, including sidelining the preseason Patriot League defensive player of the year at a bare minimum. But will those injuries affect this weekend’s game? It’s hard to say.

If Sesame Street sponsored the 2012 Georgetown football season, unquestionable it would have been brought to you by the number 5.
5 as is in: number of wins, a 5-6 season.
But more unusually, though, 5 was also the number of quarterbacks that attempted a pass for the Hoyas last season.
An incredible run of injuries at the most important position on the field saw the Hoyas fall back to a 5-6, though they did win two out of their last three games, including their third straight over Lafayette, 20-17.
The Hoyas will always bring a strong defense to the table, as always. But this year, Georgetown’s title contention hopes most likely rest in the hands of senior QB Isaiah Kempf – and hopefully not four more quarterbacks.
We break down the Georgetown game – and we give our fearless prediction, below the flip.It must be said that Hoya head coach Kevin Kelly, who is in his sixth year coaching Georgetown, has to get credit for presiding over one of the most incredible turn…
