Game Preview: James Madison at Lehigh, 9/6/2014
What's in a game?
You're a typical Lehigh fan. You know Lehigh is playing James Madison next weekend. You know that the Dukes have been a pretty good football team over the years. After reading this fantastic Lehigh blog you found, you learned of that national championship they won with QB Justin Rascati, after that championship run that started with converting that 7th-and-goal against the Mountain Hawks in the playoffs.
But then you read a recap of James Madison's game last weekend against Maryland, and then you don't know what to think.
The Terps are a FBS team, playing their very first game as a member of the Big 10 against the Dukes, coasted to a 45-0 lead against James Madison and were never really threatened. You read about mistakes, penalties, scoring only in garbage time. You might have caught some of the BTN broadcast, showing a sullen QB Vad Lee angry at himself after his second interception.
What's in that game? Does it mean anything, in the grand scheme of things, in regards to Lehigh's chances this Saturday?
