    I was thinking Eraserhead might work.

    Re: Patriot League Pick 'em - Week 7

    Another weekend away, and another set of curious outcomes. I have a sneaking suspicion we'll all be rather familiar with PL tiebreaking procedures before this season is out. Or at least, as a Colgate fan, I hope so...

    2-2 last week, 23-13 on the season

    Lafayette at Harvard Lafayette Under normal circumstances this pick would be easy. But the Leopards have 2 straight wins under their belts, while the Crimson have already taken losses to Rhode Island and Cornell. What the heck, let's ride this wave.

    Fordham at Colgate Colgate Sounds like a heartbreaker in Hamilton. The season, though, is far from over, and there is still plenty for the Raiders to play for if they can bounce back mentally. Speaking of bouncing, does Fordham have any rebound in them? Do the Rams have something that resembles a renaissance to break Raider hearts again? The last 2 contests have been one-score games, and I fear that may be coming again.

    Georgetown at Lehigh Lehigh The Hawks can score, but have trouble defending. The Hoyas are decent defensively, but cannot seem to buy any points. I suspect (and hope) that Lehigh drops a game or two in the League this year, but I doubt it's this one.

    Holy Cross at Yale Yale Have the wheels come off in Worcester? How crazy does that win over UNH seem following each subsequent loss? Yale is solid, and I think I need to see the Crusaders actually bounce back for a win before I start picking them again.

    Bucknell at Cornell Cornell This pains me, but with Big Red coming off a win against Harvard, they're probably the hot hands here. The Bison feel a little too quiet so far this season, so they can maybe steal this one, but I want to see it happen first. No, really, I would enjoy seeing it happen.

    Fordham is a mess and Edmonds can't be near 100%. Colgate smarting from last week's stunner on the tundra, will protect the turf this week, 31-17.
    Hoyas offense will be coming into Goodman salivating and while they will get some mojo going, it won't compare to the high octane LU-O. Lehigh 49-27.
    The Crusaders will continue their quest but the Grail will not be found in New Haven. Eli 45-31.
    In the meeting of the Nells, Bucky can't find the beaver, i.e. nor score for U! Big Red 10-3.
    Agreed. Home team sweep.

    One is an accident, two is a trend, three is a problem. Sixteen is, well...

    Honest question: Georgetown has consistently lacked offensive talent, so much so that no PL recruit (save a punt returner) has ever been selected PL 1st team all-offense from Georgetown. This season's Hoyas have been outscored a combined 102-15 by halftime this season...and that's a bad number, in that the Hoyas have lost 41 of its last 46 when giving up more than 14 points to an opponent.

    The defense is capable and more often that not in the top 3 or 4 in the league. Why can't Georgetown recruit offensive talent?

    I have an idea: Why not have Georgetown's defense merge with Lehigh's offense? Then the league would have at least one decent team.

    My guess? The GTown D has probably been relatively well coached over the years mitigating the need somewhat for outstanding raw talent. Offensively, while a well coached team can be successful (collectively or individually), I think you need the outstanding raw talent somewhat to be successful.....it also takes the offensive unit to work more cohesively, so you need a good OL, a good QB, maybe a decent back and some good receivers....something GTown probably really hasn't had in the PL due to not having the overall offensive talent the other schools have had.

    Just my .02

    Here is my one cent:
    When a team has a good defense people equate it with good coaching. Bucknell and Georgetown always have good defenses and lose more than they win. People typically think highly of their head coaches.
    Head coaches of teams that score a lot of points and lose more than they win are rarely considered to be good head coaches.

    Defensive minded HCs likely to put best athletes there rather than on O. That said over the years Hoyas have usually had pretty good skills players. The deficit was in the lines particularly the OL. I note also that Hoyas have had some very good squads but with absolutely no depth. They would compete quite well until the mid 3rd when players started to fade. Depth is still a big issue for you.
