Second hurdle in our 3 game season.
Bassetts has us as 70/80% chance of winning by 10November 11, 2013 at 5:38 pm #12094
Still hanging at 19 in coaches poll.November 11, 2013 at 6:18 pm #12098
After the Holy Cross game, I feel a lot better about our chances than I did after Bucknell. Shafnisky was very impressive and the defense looked like different players in the same uniforms. It’s never easy to beat Colgate especially in Hamilton. We are going to have to bring our A game and avoid turnovers.November 11, 2013 at 7:43 pm #12100
19/20 in polls. Agree 74. Blitzing may not work as well as McCarney is a senior QB and now healthy enuf to run. D still must try to dictate which to me means being just as aggressive. Gate D not as solid as HC overall altho better than earlier this yr. They now have a real D coach in Shaffner. Guess we’ll have Shaf. Gate familiar with running QBs ,so I dont expect a perfect game again from him .
To me the MVP of Cross game was the OL.If they maintain that level we will win comfortablyNovember 12, 2013 at 5:51 pm #12114
Massey’s give LU a 72% chance of winning 34-27November 12, 2013 at 6:01 pm #12115
Game notes up. Andy not telling who is going to be at QB.OL back to full strength.Nunes and Douglas OK.
Of note Gate has the smallest DL ( 6’1 245) that we’ve seen this year.And I thought ours was too lightNovember 15, 2013 at 2:54 am #12175
I’m feeling very good about this one. First, the weather looks like balmy 50’s which is a good omen right there. Second, we’re pretty healthy in the trenches and LBs, where I think the game will be won. Third, the defense really came alive last week and I expect the same intensity and a ‘strong spy’ on McCarney–probably Laub’s job. The OL coming off a strong week keeps the mojo and holes for Sherman…another 150+ yard game I smell. Mac and Shaf keep the Raiders guessing.November 15, 2013 at 4:03 am #12179
All u football nuts, You gotta run with shaf right?November 15, 2013 at 4:13 am #12180
LOL Clear Shaf is a better passer and at least as good as a runner. Is he as good a QB? Key to Air Lehigh O is making correct reads and avoiding mistakes. Matt’s mistakes were all poorly thown passes to usually open WRs. Will he improve in this game? Dont know but it is more likely that Shaf ,as a frosh with extremely limited experience in LU offense,will make more errors raising the probability of more TOs.
As a coach ,I would lkely start MM and alternate Shaf. As a fan ,I want Shaf. I think Dave can sculpt the O to fit Shaf’s ability.

I get with Shaf and MM and tell them something similar to what Andy told them last week … MM starts (if you’re Colgate, you have to expect NS, right?), but Shaf comes in when we need him. See how game goes.
As a fan I like Shaf.
Both guys have to be ready.

Not sure I can share ngineer’s optimism, D was better against Crossers but I need more to be a believer. Spy on McC is imperative, Caslow should be the spy as he can fly to the ball.November 15, 2013 at 5:18 pm #12190
Was thinking Caslow or Campbell. Agree on Caslow. Gate’s run option has hurt us every yr. Campbell better suited to stay on option guy. Key is we must control middle of LOS, limiting effectivenss of option
Mistakes will decide this game.
