Agree with LUHawker.
1) As I said on an earlier post: LU must be clear what it’s goals are for the program. Is it to develop character and compete for the PL championship every year? Is it to develop character and compete for a national title occasionally?
If it’s merely to compete for a PL title, that’s fine. Let’s be clear. And let’s consider the need (or lack thereof) to recruit with athletic scholarships.
2) If the goal is to compete at a national (or even PL) level, it’s very difficult to do so with a defense that yields 400 ypg.
The defense has done so for so long it’s clear this is not about the kids, who work their tails off day in and day out year-long. This is a coaching problem that has not been resolved yet.
3) There remains an attendance/engagement problem with Lehigh athletics. Lehigh has major social life issues right now, period, given the dozens of students arrested each week for underage drinking. The school must find a way to engage its students to attend more sports by ensuring the experience is worth the time commitment.
