    The game was on Service Electric Fox Sports here in the Lehigh Valley.  Was this a remarkable gift or grand theft football?  Liberty ran at will between the 20’s while Lehigh struggled, with the exception of four or five huge plays.  Statistically we were overrun, except on the scoreboard.  Congratulations to Andy, his staff and the team for somehow hanging on and stealing this one.  I would’nt want to be digesting this one if I’m on the Liberty staff.

    Unsung heros are Divers and Peery (and the coverage teams) in making Liberty drive 75-90 yards on most possessions. Stats tell us that a team scores only about 20% when starting from the 20-25, and less as you move back. You can have all the yardage and first downs you want. Football is a game of field position and taking advantage of others’ mistakes. So far, we are doing a great job of that.

    Ditto, engineer.

    I watched the game on replay and — even though I did not know the score — had no doubt Lehigh would win. I think they have a “winning” attitude that has overcome some inexperience on the field.

    Everyone’s right, though; we can’t keep winning with big plays. O-line has to grind down opponents and create holes consistently– is this possible? I don’t know.

    Running game has not been effective enough consistently to set up the passing game.

    D, while incredible when it has to be, still is a work in progress. Still too many missed tackles, big plays given up, etc. Sure, Liberty was the best team they faced all year, but some of these PL teams will not be pushovers.

    Hasn’t that Colvin 4th and 1 fake sneak, pass to Haggins failed enough times to not run it again for a while? If I recall, that was the beginning of end in the North Dakota State game last year.

    Definitely some questionable officiating on what looked like a Liberty fumble (great defensive play) on the 1 as the QB got in for the last touchdown and what looked like pass INT on Andrews on the two-point conversion.

    I watched the Liberty broadcast. Wonder how the Lehigh announcers saw those two plays.

    Sure is good to be 4-0.

    Anyone know why Lehigh would not have gone for two points when up 27-20?
