    Certainly one of the toughest that I can remember. Happy to see it.

    Re: Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 3

    Congrats to Georgetown, who will remain the only undefeated PL team after this weekend.

    We will also prove that the PL is definitely better than the PFL - or at least Marist. After that, though...

    Who will win, Eastern Washington, who can't stop anybody, or Fordham, who can't stop anybody?

    Fordham has not been impressive, as yet and EWU should win easily. However, the Eagles may be blinded by the lights of the Big Apple and also take the Rams lightly considering their opening two games. Still, a Ram win would be a big upset, which I cannot pick. EWU, 38-28.

    There may be chants of "Break up the Hoyas" after the "Rocks" pummel the Foxes, 37-21

    UNH is looking strong and HC has 'shown well", though when one digs a bit, their win at Bucknell was aided by a lot of Bison droppings. With Pujals, Crusaders can always make it interesting, but I don't see them keeping pace with the Wildcats. UNH--45-31.

    The Laughyette/Villanova game should be over at the half. Leotards struggling in many phases and breaking in some inexperienced players as Garrett tries to sort it out. Wildcats should get a lot of work for their #2's and 3's. Villanova, 49-17

    Bucknell appears to be in the usual 'wandering in the woods' looking for an offense. They have a chance only if William takes the day off. Tribe win big, 38-10

    Colgate currently carrying the honor of the Patriot league may give Buffalo a shuffle and an upset will not be a shock, have to go with Buffalo, 24-17.

    Hard to believe the third week of the season may be viewed as a "must win" for Lehigh, but it feels that way to me. Another dismal performance that mirrors last week's embarrassment could send the Mountain Hawks into a nose dive. I have to believe, Coen will have his troops ready for this challenge. Yale will have blood in their eyes from last year's debacle in New Haven. It's their opening game, so Lehigh may get a break with some opening game mistakes, but Yale has the benefit of watching two weeks of tape showing Lehigh's defense being gouged every which way from Sunday. I am going strictly on faith that the Brown & White will come out with a passion to show a lot of people that they can still compete. Lehigh, 45-31.

    Re: Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 3

    11-1
    Yale- The Elis are probably better than Monmouth...
    Eastern Washington- Fordham has some issues to sort out
    Georgetown- Marist is a better PFL team, but the March of the Hoyas goes on
    New Hampshire- Go Saders
    Villanova- sorry 'pards, not this week
    William & Mary- The Bison offense is a season-long project. Not ready, but the Tribe could be caught napping. Nah. Probably not.
    Buffalo- Go Colgate

    It is humbling to pick against the PL so much, but I agree, this is a schedule we want in the OOC.

    One hopes Lehigh has their WTF game out of their system. However, veteran teams are supposed to improve from game 1 to 2 not disimprove. Some key injuries to Bragalone and Christiano doesn't help LU offense. D still a work in progress after 4 years. Without some semblance of D this team goes nowhere.
    I'll await the 2 deeps before picking. Not an easy week for PL.

    My sense is that Brags will play, but not the usual amount of reps. regardless of nature of fx, Christiano will undoubtedly be out this week and likely for a few weeks. We have good depth at WR, so no need to rush him back. May get to see the hotshot freshman RB this week? Showers being forecast for Saturday right now. If a 'steady rain' we could have problems. If intermittent, then not so bad for the pass game.
