Assuming the Ivy Is Cancelling Out Of Conference Games, Here’s How Patriot League Can Have 9 Game Season

The Patriot League could very well be in a huge bind assuming the Ivy League goes forward with their college football restart plans.

According to Mark Blaudschun of TMG Sports, the Ivy League is considering two plans for their 2020 college football season – neither of which allow for any out of conference games.
13 out-of-conference games involving Patriot League teams would be on the chopping block, and when you add to it the Patriot League presidents’ guidance to not fly to games, every single member of the Patriot League is affected.  If you add to that the fact that the opening of the college football season is going to at best start in late September (yes, you read that correctly), the Patriot League would count as one of the most deeply affected by Covid-19-influenced delays and decisions in the entire college football landscape.
It is a bind to be sure – but not one that should see the Patriot League cancel the 2020 football season.
If we start with the assumption that the season will start late at best, and we assume that the TMG Sports report is accurate (and nobody has come forward to deny the basic thrust of the report), it should be possible to craft a nine-week Patriot League football season with seven league games and two out-of-conference games.  There are a lot of moving parts, and the Patriot League would need some partners.  But it should be possible.

Five Questions for Lehigh Entering Spring Football Practice

Lehigh’s spring football practice segment officially starts tomorrow, ending an agonizingly long period of football inactivity from the end of the 2017 football season.

Tomorrow, the beginnings of the 2018 football team will take shape – a team that waves goodbye to WR Troy Pelletier and WR Gatlin Casey, but welcomes back rising senior QB Brad Mayes and some changes on the defensive side of the ball.

What sort of questions will be answered by by the end of this spring segment?  Here are five of my questions.

Patriot League Commit Tracker, Class of 2022

Patriot League Commit Tracker, Class of 2022

With this year’s early signing period in December, along with traditional signing day in February and additional signing of recruits up until May, it felt like the right time to resurrect the Patriot League Commit Tracker for the class of 2022.

This is intended to be a rolling list, updated as we go, as student-athletes going to any Patriot League school sign National Letters of Intent.

We don’t know the whole story yet behind each school’s recruiting class.  But this post is intended to put in one place what we know so far.

As I learn more, I will add more names to each list.
