Last week, Lehigh beat Monmouth 28-25, partially thanks to a crazy blocked punt that landed behind the line of scrimmage and was caught in mid-air by senior FB Zach Hayden, which he advanced for 37 yards and set up the winning score.

Last season, as he does for the Sports Network every year, Craig Haley gave his predictions for the Ivy League.
Haley, who used to work for Princeton, made a bold prediction: that the Tigers would climb out of the Ivy League cellar after a 1-9 season, saying, for good measure, that “it seems time for the Tigers program to win more often. At least that’s what everybody thinks.”
Like some people, I chuckled to myself. Princeton? Out of the cellar? Really? (Jake Novak, of the Roar Lions blog, noted about his prediction: “Actually, NO ONE thinks that. Princeton is picked last in every other poll.”)
As it turns out, Haley’s prediction came out looking pretty good, making me very glad that I didn’t put my own reservations about Princeton’s chances in writing. (Or put Haley’s face with the caption, “What’s he smoking?” underneath it, like Roar Lions did.)
The Tigers confounded their last-place expectations and instead finished with an extremely satisfying 5-5 record, showing, for the first time, glimmers of hope that the Prince Town Tigers will finally be back in competition for the Ivy League title in 2013.
