    Harvard broadcast is pathetic, would not pay for it again.

    Conditions are very bad, but we are being embarrassed. 17 – 0 at halftime, we need to start scheduling the MEAC

    may have spoke too soon, seems like another team in the second half, now 17 – 14, O is moving and D is stout

    hope it keeps up

    51 yard pass to Spadola, we have the lead now 21 – 17

    looks like Haaavad wanted to mail it in for the second half

    Oh, and the Harvard broadcast still sucks!

    Looks like we are gonna steal one.

    1 minute left and Cribbs intercepts a desperation pass in the end zone. 3 plays to run out the clock and get outta there!

    Lehigh took an intentional safety in an attempt to run out the clock and won 21-19. Great comeback victory.

    Congratulations on the great win Lehigh!

    That was probably the worst half played by Lehigh in the first half and one of the best halfs in the second half.

    As previously stated, Lehigh will continue to win all games through the second round of the playoffs.

    Regarding the broadcast and the announcers, worst I have seen in these Lehigh games so far. Still calling Lehigh "The Engineers" and falsely calling #2 as Jake Drwal during the whole game. Then there were those advertisements which covered the game much too often.

    Hey, but it is a Lehigh win over a very good Harvard team. We will take it.

    I listened on lehighsports.com. Aside from some minor microphone issues, the coverage was OK.
    Agreed that the first half was embarassing. The O apparently got stuck in traffic on I-95 and didn’t show up until half time. They could do no wrong in the 3rd quarter, and then the D stepped in to shut down the Crimson.
    I think only the initial field goal gets charged to the defense, so I award the game ball to the entire defensive unit. JJH

    Don’t forget to save a game ball for Alex Smith in recognition of his 5 punts for 200 yards – three, I believe (maybe 4) into winds gusting at times 30-35 mph winning the all important battle for field position. Well done.

    Agreed on Smith. He kept it low into the wind, and got a good bounce each time. JJH

    No question Smith gets a game ball. His punting wasn’t just good, it showed a lot of smarts in approaching the windy conditions. Defense played very well. Harvard’s two TD’s came right after turnovers by the offense, and one with a very short field. One has to be concerned, though, with the continued inability to mount a running game. Maybe the injuries to Schauder and Wojo contributed, but still a concern as I see a need to be able to control possession if we want to move forward.

    Just watched the game on Harvard web site … some takeaways:

    AWFUL:

    — Broadcast, as noted earlier.

    — Running offense, entire game. Give Zach Barket a shot.

    — Offense first half. Lum’s lucky he wasn’t picked off more often. I haven’t seen a worse first half in a long time. (He had pretty good stats, but he has me scared to death.)

    — First half defense. Poor tackling was embarrassing.

    — Wildcat. Frankly, it’s a joke.

    — End of game clock management. No way should Harvard have even gotten the ball back at the end. Can anyone count. If the ultimate goal was to get a safety, spend some time getting there so the clock runs out in the end zone.

    — Peery hurt?

    — When will this team get a FCS-level kicking game? Quality kickers are a dime a dozen now at most high schools I’m familiar with.

    AWESOME:

    — An effective quick kick call. Anyone know the last LU player to attempt a quick kick?

    — The comeback — all aspects.

    — Some of the wide receiver screens Cecc called, and the execution, even the TD that got called back.

    — Alex Smith.

    — Looked like whomever Bryan Andrews had covered was covered tight. Great playing.

    — Tackling and team tackling in second half. Turnaround was staggering.

    LUCKY?

    — On Harvard’s penultimate possession, was their receiver in-bounds when he caught the ball in the end zone? This is the kind of luck that wins/loses ballgames. Thiws was a bang-bang play. Last year, the guy would have been ruled in-bounds and LU loses the game. Luck/bad luck like this is why I have defended Coen (not his old OC) in the past.

    Good news is now Coen has his kids fired up.G

    Let’s hope they can keep it going one game at a time.

    That Colgate team looks very tough ….

    QUESTION:

    Did, as LU stats noted, LU long snapper really catch a pass? Why was Wojo listed in participation report?

    Excellent recap of the game comes from Michael Vega in this morning’s Boston Globe in which he highlights the Lum-Spadola hookup. See below.

    Great article. Maybe we can now run off a string of close wins to match our skein of close losses.

    Harvard’s DTs are very very good. Shut down inside run and we aren’t fast enuf to run outside effectively. OL was quite good in pass protection but again abysmal in run game.

    Now we need to avoid slump game. We can beat everyone else ( Gate :roll: ) for a decent season

    Like your thinking, Rich. As much as I’d like to see some game-planning begin for Colgate – and I’m sure some will – let’s not look beyond an energized Bucknell. The students will be back on campus and it’s Homecoming Weekend. Should be fun. In the meantime, let’s pray for snow up in Hamilton as the Raiders host the Crusaders of Holy Cross. Go purple!
