    Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 3

    Still hyperventilating from a sorryass Saturday. I’m guessing that Urban Meyer feels bad, but at least he’s not looking at most of his League in the toilet. Anyway, here we go for another round of “competitive” Patriot League football:

    Yale @ LEHIGH
    Eastern Washington @ FORDHAM
    Marist @ GEORGETOWN
    New Hampshire @ HOLY CROSS
    LAFAYETTE @ Villanova
    BUCKNELL @ William & Mary
    COLGATE @ Buffalo

    Pass the Tums.

    Game of the Week: TIE –
    Eastern Washington @ FORDHAM
    New Hampshire @ HOLY CROSS
    Both games feature Patriot League teams squaring off against the big kids of FCS football. Here’s hoping that one, the other, or both do something to salvage our deteriorating reputation.

    NOTE: Bucknell and Lafayette are also going up against some "big kids." Perhaps Fordham and the Cross are also in this category, but Bucky and the Pards are in the Christians vs. the lions category in the Roman Colosseum.

    To be fair, he specifically said "FCS" opponents. Buffalo is not, in fact, an FCS team, though I can understand any confusion

    Ah, yes, Game of the Week - a constant bone of contention. "My team's game is always bigger."

    League-wide, I have to think this may be the toughest OOC slate the PL was evah played during one week, no?

    Re: Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 3

    Lehigh
    Fordham - both teams have strong Os but suspect Ds
    Georgetown
    UNH
    Villanova
    W&M
    Colgate - Bulls are 0-2 ATM, and their first two games were low-scoring.
    Ivy League Football: Since the latter half of the 20th century, slowly self-destructing to become irrelevant in the scene that they used to dominate, not too many fans among the younger generations, rusting their potentials in the process.
    Before, I liked a lot about Harvard football. Now, not so much. They are the main perpetrators of why Ivy League football has lost its popularity and it may never go back to what it used to be.

    In the meantime, Go Stony Brook Seawolves!

    Yale @ LEHIGH – If this wasn’t Eli’s opener I’d probably go the other way. No pun intended, but the Squawks look pretty crappy. OK, it was intentional.

    Eastern Washington @ FORDHAM – The Rams haven’t shown a thing so far and this looks like the deep end of the pool. Kudos, though, to the scheduling folks in the Bronx for getting this game.

    Marist @ GEORGETOWN – The only Patriot League team to open the season 2-0!

    New Hampshire @ HOLY CROSS – Another “show me” game for the Crossers. Another time that they are in over their heads.

    LAFAYETTE @ Villanova – Not a prayer. The Pards are a really bad team at the moment. Can Garrett get it straightened out – even by 2019?

    BUCKNELL @ William & Mary – Bucky gets pummeled.

    COLGATE @ Buffalo - The ‘gaters continue to walk down murderer’s row. The Bulls are certainly not a powerhouse, but probably have too much for the Raiders.

    Pretty much. Colgate probably has the best chance at winning.

    Yale @ LEHIGH
    Eastern Washington @ FORDHAM I think this may be close, though...
