    Rich must still be asleep. Two deep out vs. Bucknell.

    Caslow is listed on the two-deep.

    Quick scan ,no changes. I note Stubbs has been cleared to play.

    Not asleep :). Just doing a friend a favor.
    Key is how we control Cartdr on the outside and if Williams plays. BU has a good OL. Carter missed the first couple of games. He is most explosive WR in PL. D has been good but also has not been challenged. In reality ,we are the best O they will see up to now.

    I think it is unlikely Williams plays. He is listed on the depth chart – but Susan often lists players who are definitely out for the upcoming week. I think it is telling that for the first time they just added a freshman RB to the “two-deep”, giving them four RB’s on that list.

    Agree about the D not having been tested a lot. One issue is that it is young – currently starting six sophs and one frosh. Top CB is out, as is the FS. May well have issues on pass defense.

    To borrow a phrase from some politician, this game is “UUUUGE” for Lehigh. Sets the table for the rest of the season with a bye week and time to heal and plan for Fordham. Sort of like returning to the “scene of the crime” two years ago. Seems like that blowout in Lewisburg started the malaise we are currently struggling to get out. Perfect place to turn it around. GO LEHIGH!

    Caslow is listed on the two-deep, but I am keenly interested as to whether he is 100% for the Bucknell game. Again, Buskirk looks like he’s going to be a good LB for us, but I vastly prefer Caslow And Buskirk together 1-2.

    Per Andy today Caslow and Rigaud OK to play. Both injuries lookedvworse than they were.
    Crucial game for us. Among all the other issues,need a W going into the bye week.

    Looking at Bucknell, they don’t score but they don’t give up many points either. Most of their offense is on the ground through Williams. He may not play but his back-up had a career day against us last year. They turn the ball over as do we.
    It’s a winnable game. We used to own Bucknell (15 straight wins from 1998-2012). It’s time we assert ourselves again

    A winnable game if we hold Bison to their point avg so far this year. Do think we will score a good bit if we dont pull another Princeton show.

    2 years ago was one of the most unexplained games at BU. It had been years since losing to them,but from the opening kickoff things happened in a snowball effect. Fumbles/penalties/dropped passes and ints/qb injury etc. I really felt good going into that game,not so sure about this game. Bucknell has smacked us the past 2 years. Turnovers were huge. If we play clean maybe get to 3-3,just so hard to predict which team shows up.

    Game preview for Lehigh at Bucknell…

    http://lehighfootballnation.blogspot.com/2015/10/game-preview-lehigh-at-bucknell-10102015.html

    And hopefully kick-starting some discussion on this actual season in what is inarguably the most important game of the season thus far.

    Benson’s Steakhousevwas a great place to eat. We went a lot as kids got older. A fond memory.

    From what I can see ,BU. OL big but not nearly as athletoc as PU and Yale. Carter is their big play guy. He lit us up last year. CB anda S on top for us. BU runs a lot mostly on either side of the OTs,a weak point in 3 man line.
    D very stingy. See, to live on max pressure up front. A lot of run blitzes. Very susceptible to option plays.

    I really like your articles LFN. But its comical to me how you constantly write about our secondary and all the good things they do, when everyone with eyes know theyre the weakest link on the D, and are the positions that needs revamped! LFN, are you a enabler ;)

    Yes, a great place. Benson was also the co-founder of Smith and Wollensky’s – with fellow Bucknellian Alan Stillman – and they also started a couple of other Manhattan restaurants. Stillman also started TGIF’s in NYC 50 years ago, but sold it within a decade. It was a lot different back then.
