    I’ll vent here. :twisted: On their board, LC fans are whining about how LU players taunted the poor spotted puddy cat players and played a dirty game. I am sick of their whining fans especially when it comes to the continuing "lack of class" comments. Lehigh out hit them and, I believe, intimidated the crap of them. I really think that the intimidation led to some of the LC turnovers.

    The only time Lafayette looked like they might be a real football team was when they were jumping around and mouthing off right after the coin toss. After that, they got their a$$es kicked for 4 quarters.

    Man, I hate that school from Easton! Great win, total domination, all is right again. Thanks Andy C. and Dave C. We are back where we belong and so is Lafayette.

    Ok, now I feel better. :D

    They have been whining a lot over there, but truth be told they have a lot to whine about. The Lehigh players are thugs is getting rather old, but perhaps it is a way to rationalize four straight loses, a 39-25-2 advantage for Lehigh since the end of WWII, and multiple playoff wins and undefeated regular seasons for Lehigh.

    The vitriol that is being spewed on the Lafayette board is unbelievable. They are accusing Coen of trying to run up the score. What a joke! Andy Coen is a class act and would never run up the score on anyone. If he kept his foot on the accelerator the entire game, I really believe the score could have been 50-0. He had second and third team defenders playing most of the second half.

    Find it hard to see where Coen tried to run up the score. Upset by a long pass late in game after Andy cleared benches ( Saw Vinnie finally got in on OL greta for him a true teammate bedeviled by injuries). Guess they wanted us to call plays like Pard OC did. 3 runs up the gut and punt. Andy has not dumpedon anyone all year. heck, we could have scored 50 vs Fordham. Even when he lefy Chris in Dave did not push the O to scoresome meaningless TDs.

    Running score up?

    I was a little surprised Lum was still passing midway through third quarter; then again, I think they were trying to get him a record for TD passes. I was a little surprised he ran the QB draw to get the last TD – so was that running up the score? No.

    I spoke to an LC alum, former football player, on the way home. A member of a team that dominated LU, he said some top alums are trying to pull the plug on Tavani. He’s become too much of a alumni-kisser, less of a coach and has lost several of his assistants to places like Towson. He had nothing bad to say about LU.

    I look in on that board as well. Talk about delusional whiners. First off, they had admittedly about five- six decent seasons, from 2004 through 2009. They peaked at 8 wins, they had a few signature wins against good opponents and they shared ("shared") three championships. They never won one outright, never came close to hosting, never won a game. On the basis of this period their fans are of the opinion that their team is a perennial power and that God forbid, a seven win season is unforgivable.

    I enjoy the in-fighting as they try to explain the downturn with things like equivelencies being down, assistant coaches defecting, poor gameplanning, kids quitting… it goes on and on. Never once do these delusional dunderheads consider that Bucknell and Georgetown have improved, or that it is a natural cycle to be up for a period, then down a bit. No, not the powerful Leopards, the school with three mythical National Championships to their credit. These are the guys who invented the huddle, the helmet and the chairback seat. They are really special!

    The truth is, even when Andy’s first two teams were a little down (losses to LC) the Lehigh team made a game of it. This Lafayette team that showed up for the 2011 Rivalry game packed it in early. It was either the first solid hit on their freshman phenom, or that ghastly interception by the QB of the minute, or perhaps it was the fact that they don’t match up talent-wise with Lehigh, or with Bucknell, Holy Cross or Georgetown for that matter, but the fact is, they are an inferior team. Harvard knows it, Georgetown and Bucknell knows it, and of course, we know it. Only the delusional fans at the Lafayette board are clueless. Someone intimated that among the problems is a head coach who thinks tee shirts with slogans, pep talks by blind mountain climbers and throw back unis are the answer. Maybe the "master motivator" has lost his touch.

    Not atypical when a program falls on hard times. Go back and look at this board a few years ago, as well as other posting places and see the sniping and whining that occurred. Losing aint fun, and when it happens for "awhile" it starts all sorts of witchhunting for the cause. I do think Tavani lost some of his players this year, and he knows it. That’s why he called for 6 a.m. workouts the Monday after the game. He’s searching for those committed to the program and identify those who aren’t willing to pay the price to improve. Ironically, they’ve gone into the crapper just after finishing their renovation of the stadium and new field house and how that was going to give them such a "leg up" to out recruit us. Students at this level are more impressed with what the school has to offer them and their opportunities for the future, in addition to the sense of family/chemistry.

    I was watching Tavani with my field glasses during the game, and he was never upset. It was almost that expected what was happening and he had no answers. Down 17-0 at halftime in this game is nothing. Many good teams can come back from such a deficit. Yet, as they left the field I really sensed that the Spotted Pussies were already beaten.

    This was another reason why I called this the weirdest Rivalry game I ever saw. Did you ever think you’d see Tavani unemotional in a game – this game?

    "…Tavani unemotional…" ??

    I beg to differ. I saw the replay on TV and when the Leopard QB single-handedly marched his team backward toward the goal line in the first half, coach T’s face was as red as a can of tomato paste. You did not need to be a lip reader to see him mouth this sentence:

    :lol: "Wake the f**k UP!"

    I agree with Marco.

    Tavani lost it when Colin Newton dove into endzone.

    In person, I thought Colin dove in to avoid defender. I watched replay several times, I wasn’t so sure then.
