Surma is now the 2ndary coach at Lycoming.April 8, 2016 at 6:09 pm #26375
Dont know whether this move by Andy will help fix D. Hope its not just rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.April 9, 2016 at 12:06 am #26380
Rich, relax and stop the crap, you need to get a life and stop all the threads about hearsay.Sad thing is…..your opinion is usually wrong. If you want a deck chair, take a cruise and get lost.April 9, 2016 at 12:23 am #26381
Never fails with you M.
Surma is at Lycoming per his twitter. My comment on deck chairs merely my hope that Ward can help fix the D we have seen for the last few years. That and a 2nd year for all in the scheme.
If you’ll notice I made no comment on your original post because I didn’t know. Once I saw Ward’s twitter I posted.April 9, 2016 at 12:49 am #26382
once again, if all you do is follow twitter and Facebook and troll those sites, find a hobby and stop the crap. Thinking you are breaking news is not happening. MOST insiders already know. Yes I’am sensitive about football because I see so many naive wannabees bored with life and trying so hard to be noticed. Enjoy Lehigh sports, but stop the everyday trolling post to be relevant. Let the news be released and official.April 9, 2016 at 1:07 am #26383
Gee M you were the one who broke the story. I just found confirmation for it. I post what I find because most here dont have the luxury of the time. I do being retired and the interest. Truly it isn t unusual that insiders already know items that are posted here. Most here are just fans and not insiders. You are free to post and read whatever interests you and ignore what doesn’t. The fact that you may have inside information is fine for you. You can share or not share what you wish. Or indeed correct someone else’s mistake.
I will continue to post information I find.April 9, 2016 at 4:55 am #26384
Rich is correct. Most of us are not ‘insiders’nor have the time to visit all the websites. If something is confirmed on a site, nothing wrong with passing the information along, along with approbation so we know the source. Knowing Surma went to Lycoming indicates to me Andy made a move. Going to Lycoming is not a step up. Hopefully, Ward brings the vision of aggression that he played with.April 9, 2016 at 3:57 pm #26385
If the term “troll” applies to anyone, it may be you.
Personally, I like finding information out before it becomes “official” which may be months down the road. The vast, vast majority of information Rich provides turns out to be very true. Amazingly, every time I read about “official” recruiting announcements, we tend to know about all of it many months beforehand. I enjoy following their progress in HS.
If you have some inside information that you wish to share, by all means, go ahead. Keep the personal smack to yourself.
As for Ward, welcome aboard, but I don’t see this as being a monumental change, simply a tweak. Tyler is a fine young man and was a very good safety but to the best of my knowledge, he has only coached linebackers and never played in a 3-3-5 defense much less played rover. There will be a learning curve for him too. Hopefully though, in the meantime he can coach tackling and toughness.
Our defense was terrible last year. I don’t think anyone here can deny that. Significant improvement is needed in order to get significant results.April 10, 2016 at 1:27 am #26389
Rich, your passion and love for athletics is apparent. Sometimes less is more. It was obvious that a few would come to your defense. TMH,the vast majority of info that you talk about are usually in game summaries,tweets or articles that are posted on this site,and not really news. And the times someone gets it wrong is hearsay???? And FWIW no coach on the roster has played in a 3-3-5 or Rover,………so I guess the D is terrible because of the scheme. Only a troll starts a thread,misinforms on a thread, comments on his own post, and then whines about it. Love all the passion, Go Lehigh
