I agree with TMH, @lfnadmin. A little grade inflation maybe …

Overall, you’re pretty right on. My biggest disagreement would be with the A- for DBs. A- for Bucknell? Sure.

If I performed the way the defense did this year when I was at Lehigh, my gut tells me I’d have gotten lots of Cs and Ds — maybe an F — with low As or high Bs for the RBs and QB.

Using a more objective (not sure it’s relevant) measure of grading — using team NCAA stats and an online Bell Curve calculator:

Passing: Lehigh ranked 22 of 123 teams: B-
Passing efficiency: LU rank is 48: C
Rushing: LU rank is 49: C
Scoring offense: Rank is 74; C
Rushing D: Rank 89; C-
Passing efficiency D: 87; C-
Scoring defense: 80; C-

BTW: This calculator claims that on a true Bell Curve — out of 123 students — 2 should get As and Fs each; 17 should get Bs and Ds; the rest Cs.
