How do you judge an 0-2 team?
It’s not just an academic question the week for Lehigh fans.
It’s way too easy to look at the scores in Monmouth’s first two games of the season – a 42-24 defeat against one of the top teams in the country, Montana State, and a 45-15 defeat on the road at Liberty, which, as any fan following Lehigh last year knows, is an awfully tough place to play.
If there’s a message head coach Andy Coen wants to deliver in between the lines, its simply not to necessarily expect Lehigh to score 40 points on the Hawks this week.
“This football team we’re playing I think is a better team than the one we just played even though they’re 0-2,” he told Mike LoRe of the Express-Times this week.

Holy crap. Is it really only 16 days until the season starts?
Today, our honored athlete is senior SS Rickie Hill.
Below the flip get all the links and wrapups of this weekend’s Spring Game.

By any measure the defense probably had more of its share of concern – and attention from coaches and fans alike – in this Spring season.
They had heard the issues all Spring long – the fact that only three starters returned on defense, including four new starters in the secondary and three new starters on the defensive line.
“The defense needs to get better,” Coen said in the release before the Brown/White game. “They didn’t perform very well in our last scrimmage and our coaches have challenged them.”
The defensive Brown team, led by new team captains senior LB Nigel Muhammad and senior FS Tyler Ward, responded to the challenge.
Using a modified scoring system, the Brown defense scored 14 points off of sacks and 12 points off of turnovers as the defense put up a solid performance in a 46-37 victory.

With all-Patriot League names like DT Sajjad Chagani, DE Tom Bianchi, LB Billy Boyko and CB Bryan Andrews on the roster, you knew that the squad was more in a mode to “tweak” rather than to “retool”.
This season sees not only these three position leaders graduate, but plenty more, making the defense much less experiences, and a much larger area of competition, than last season.
“The defense needs to get better,” head coach Andy Coen said in this week’s release. “They didn’t perform very well in our last scrimmage and our coaches have challenged them. We haven’t had a lot of live tackling because we’re in a tailback situation. Last week we got more into it, we scrimmaged, and we didn’t tackle very well. We have to improve upon that.”
