    Re: 2017 (Way Too Early) Patriot League Football Predictions

    I'd say a toss-up between Fordham and Lehigh at the top. Bucknell follows IMHO, then Colgate and Holy Cross. Georgetown still lags because there doesn't seem to be much new to elevate them. Too much has changed at Lafayette to predict anything but we remain bottom-feeders until we prove otherwise.

    Lehigh should win the league, followed by Fordham.

    It's a quarterback League so Lehigh, Fordham and Holy Cross should do well. The others need to spend some serious time recruiting.

    PL has always been a QB centric league.
    3 veteran QBs returning. Can a 1st yr starter or a frosh phenom make an impact?
    Has a frosh ever lead his team to PL title??

    Drew Reed made the final six starts for Lafayette in 2013 after taking over in the second half up in Allston. I think it's fair to say that Reed, as a freshman, led the Pards to the PL championship that year even though he didn't begin the season as the starter.

    Also it was Reed's performance that led to the enduring "Lafayette at New Hampshire" thread. That's got to count for something.

    Vena, in 1996, led Colgate to within one point of the league title, losing to champion Bucknell, 28-27.

    That was the last championship for the Annoying Orange, wasn't it? They're due.

    Only championship for Bucknell.

    The Bison started 1997 10-0 before getting smoked by Colgate in the de facto PL title game to finish the year. The Bison were definitely ranked in the Top 20/25 at the time of the game. That might have been Colgate's best team with Vena despite the so-so record. They played a brutally tough schedule and pounded teams in their wins. They gave #1 'Nova a respectable game in the playoffs.

    Bucknell has been recruiting the southeast really hard. I dont know if they are landing any kids, have not kept up with it. But I know of three seniors that received literature from Bucknell this year in Florida and Georgia.
