    Let’s get this started with a history lesson. Hel-LO? Lehigh fans? Wake up! This is "Rivalry weekend", remember?

    Indeed. As of LFN’s post here, the Lafayette-Lehigh thread on the Lafayette Board has had over 900 visits.

    Is it really true, as rumored, that Lehigh folks really couldn’t care less about this game?

    Nope. Just couldn’t care less about Lafayette in general.

    Actually, the lack of Lehigh-Lafasux activity on this board is a bit bothersome. I am hoping that our fans and players are not assuming that an 8-2 team should win this matchup in a romp. Those Easton SOB’s made that mistake last year and cost themselves both #145 and a shot at an at-large playoff bid. Some would say that they still have not recovered from that loss.

    Next up: a small history of the "craziness". A version of what I wrote last year, but with a couple new twists.

    Actually some of those 900 visits were probably Lehigh fans with the morbid fascination of watching a fish flop around on dry land. I know I enjoy going on their board and watching the digression of thread titles.

    Oh, the hopes and dreams that Lafayette football fans had back in the beginning of September. Time to put that final nail in their coffin that is the 2010 Lafayette Football season.

    Go Lehigh!

    I don’t think I’m alone in saying that some of us have families, jobs and other community activities and it’s all I can do to ‘check in’ once a day to see what’s up. Moreover, I’m usually on AGS when I get the time. Don’t have time to live on all of these differenct media places. I see some of the people who appear to live on the internet sites posting away. Either they’re unemployed, or they are ripping off their employers. I always looked upon this site as strictly a "Lehigh Site". If I want to ‘interface’ with the rest of the football world , I go to AGS.

    :oops: guilty as charged. In the time I have I tend to spend more time on AGS.

    Saw 3 Pard games this year. In none of them did they look particularly challenging. Of course the 2 Lehigh games I saw did not give me a great feeling either. Pards this year remind me of us the last couple of yrs. They find ways to lose games. We have gotten better as the season has progressed. Pards have not. Part of the difference is their coach’s refusal to pick and stick to a qb. We will face their best on Sat. Kid is accurate. Part of their problem is true lack of depth . The downside of 42 equivalencies and 2 small recruiting classes. Most of their frontline players are, not surprisingly ,not much different than ours or any other PL squad. The dropoff to the 2nd team is , except at rb and perhaps wr, drastic . Pard STs are atrocious.

    All of which basically means that if we try to play these guys with the same level of intensity we showed vs Hoyas we can lose. If we channel the Gate contest we win easily.

    My preview of the 146th. I think it’s destined to be a close one. Don’t laugh.
