    No love shown to PL. Colgate, winners of their last three by a combined score of 122-16, is ranked 35th. Lehigh tabbed at #43.

    ‘gate has won three blowouts over opponents with no national credibility. They, like us, have been blown out when stepping up and out of conference. If they spank Holy Cross this weekend by a convincing score, then top 25 they may be. Keep winning, and everything gets taken care of.

    Methinx you are giving the ‘saders a bit more respect than they’ve earned. This one looks like another lopsided win for Colgate, and no more impressive than some of their other victories. The ChickenSquawks are their first – and perhaps only – real test in the Patriot League. I confess to having little true understanding of the intricacies of Xs and Os, but I continue to be astounded at how no one seems able to stop what is, on the surface at least, a very simple offense with usually only two backs in the backfield. One or the other is going to run with the ball an overwhelming majority of the time and trickeration is at best improbable.

    I wrote about the TSN’s reveal of their voter list, which did have some troubling aspects. (Seventeen voters – and I’m being charitable – for the CAA?) While those aspects are there, I think they need to look at the voter rolls next year and either do some balancing – or pruning – to their rolls.

    In my humble opinion, Colgate succeeds in our league with the simplistic approach because, in part, they physically prepare their players better than everyone else. They do a better job with strength and conditioning, period.

    Colgate also does well because it’s got a great coach. He’s able to recruit incredibly high-quality players regularly.

    Not only are they in great shape, but they’re usually disciplined and smart.

    And when you have as good a running game as they have, it makes the passing game that much more challenging. Lehigh’s been good against the run in recent years, which has helped.
