    Stunned. I could sympathize with Rushon et al as they did not instigate the fight. This is all on these players. Githens is gone. Unlikely he avoids some jail time. The others are certainly out and may also be gone. Not enough facts,but they were not criminally charged. Andy will learn more. I would be surprised if they weren’t expelled. Again,depends on facts we dont know. Damn stupid stunt.

    HE HAD A CHOICE AND MADE THE WRONG ONE
    HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH COACHING

    PEOPLE ON THIS FORUM NEED TO GET A LIFE AND STOP COACH BASHING
    REMEMBER IF THE JOB OPENS, I WANT TO SEE YOUR APPLICATIONS

    AND AS FOR THE FUTURE OF LEHIGH FOOTBALL
    IT IS AS BRIGHT AS EVER!!

    THIS IS THE LAST YEAR OF NON-SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS
    NEXT YEAR WILL BE ALL SCHOLARSHIP PLAYERS

    IT IS A PROCESS- MOST OF YOU HAD THEM HAVING 3 OR 4 WINS

    THEY HAVE SHOWN PROGRESS

    AS FOR THE DEFENSE BASHERS- EVERY PATRIOT LEAGUE TEAM GAVE UP ABOUT THE SAME AMOUNT OF POINTS SO I GUESS THERE WILL BE A LOT OF OPENINGS IN THE OFF SEASON

    HAVE A NICE WINTER

    Objective Observer you are not only a hypocrite, but your reading skills are less than adequate. Nobody on this thread said anything about the coaches and THIS situation. As far as the D goes, you are also uniformed, how many PL teams are worse than us? You have a nice winter in Florida…..Shaf basher, or should I say Mayes fan/coach/family?

    Sad situation for Githens, wish he made a better choice. He wasnt a scholarship kid, but a bigtime contributor to our D. I know the other kid involved, you all would be shocked. Hes a Sr and defensive starter.

    Just remember: In our society, he’s innocent until proven guilty (and I’m related to him) or he pleads guilty or no content to the charge.

    I agree with LG. No one is blaming the coaches for an alleged bad act by a player.

    The play of the defense is a whole other story. This defense is far worse than othe PL teams. Good indicator: Colgate had not scored more than 31 points all season until last Saturday.

    Wow, a bit hypersensitive huh. Who blamed the coaching staff?

    Unless you just started following Lehigh football 2 years ago, many of us have seen far better performances to get excited about than this bright star you see flying across the sky in your world. I can see the case for optimism with the offense, but the defense…..see below.

    There is absolutely ZERO basis for your argument of our defense. Our defense gave up 49+ points on 4 different occasions this year. The DC and the 3-3-5 scheme should both be canned.

    And to refute your other point that we are just as bad as the rest of the Patriot League (the conversation on how we should be happy we are just as terrible as the rest of a bad conference on a whole is a topic for another day).

    Here are the Defensive rankings per NCAA (out of 123 FCS teams). The 5 numbers following the teams, in order, are Total Yards/game rank, Rush yds/game rank, Pass yds/gm rank, Total pts/gm rank and Total point/game

    BUCKNELL-32-32-48-22-19.2
    HOLY CROSS-69-66-82-50-24.2
    GEORGETOWN-63-52-78-54-25.1
    COLGATE-67-49-92-76-28.5
    FORDHAM-85-43-113-77-28.8
    LAFAYETTE-105-100-102-96-33.7
    LEHIGH-104-93-103-105-35.7

    So basically we gave up almost twice as many points per game as Bucknell.

    The final test for the defense will be this Saturday. The juggernaut that is Lafayette’s offense is 122 out of 123 (averaging 11.5 pts/gm). Hopefully the 3-3-5 can stop a team that barely averages double digits on Saturday.

    Thanks, LU90, for doing the research I was too lazy to do about the D. Point proven.

    Unreal. Every few years one of these incidents happen. What idiots. Interesting that this happened a week ago before the Colgate game and only, now, getting play.
