    Re: Patriot League Pick 'Em - Week 7

    3-1 last week, up to 24-8 on the year. Not bad, can be better

    Holy Cross at Harvard Harvard It appears that many of the good vibes that surrounded HC's start have evaporated somewhat. Seems like they made a good coaching hire, but still a long way to go until they are truly competitive again. How competitive is Harvard though? Two losses (to teams better than they have been in the past) suggests something is not quite the same in Cambridge. Cantabs appear to be a step behind the Ivy contenders, but I'm going to fall back on a standard principle: average Ivy is better (especially at home) than below average Patriot.

    Cornell at Colgate Colgate The 100th meeting between these two, and the game looks more interesting than it did this time last week. Second straight win over the Crimson, plus their win over SHU, suggests Big Red might actually be putting something together. Colgate continues to chug along, though accumulated some injuries at Bucknell, particularly to the secondary. I feel much better about this game being in Hamilton, and I'm expecting a good performance heading into the PL stretch run. Better dead than Red.

    Fordham at Lehigh Lehigh The Soul-Searchers Bowl. Both programs appear to be asking questions after a number of lackluster performances this season. It isn't even that they have 1 win between them, but how noncompetitive they have looked throughout the process. Someone has the chance to, if not save their season, at least give them a reason to see a light at the end of the tunnel. Lehigh is at home, and has a least tasted victory so far.

    Georgetown at Lafayette Lafayette Here are two teams actually coming off good performances in their last outings, and have reason to feel good about themselves. To a point, at least. Would not be surprised to see a competitive game, as these teams are 4-4 in their last 8 meetings, with several tight (and/or occasionally unwatchable) contests. Leopards have won two in a row in this series, and are at home.

    Bucknell at Monmouth Monmouth The Hawks have followed up last year's at-large playoff team with a 3-1 start, though their postseason performance put a damper on larger national expectations. Bucknell, on the other hand, does not really have larger national expectations, which hints at how this matchup could very well go. The Bison play a tough, physical game, but have difficulty moving the ball and scoring. Monmouth survived one PL team that can do that, so I have a hard time seeing this go too differently. On the other hand, this would be a fascinating OOC basketball game (last year's was a barnburner...).

    Harvard easily in what should be a close played rivalry game, but isn't.
    Colgate even more easily (see above)
    Lehigh so that we can hear Coen talk about how he has righted the ship and the team is now performing exactly how he has coached them.
    Georgetown - just a gut feeling, or maybe it's an ulcer
    Monmouth in a cake walk. I'm honestly surprised that no FBS school has picked up Susan as a DC. The guy can coach and recruit a defense.

    Re: Patriot League Pick 'Em - Week 7

    Vegas lines are

    Lehigh 13 over Fordham
    Colgate 13 over Cornell
    Monmouth 12 over Bucknell
    Lafayette 2 1/2 over Georgetown

    Couldn't find Holy Cross and Harvard, but I didn't work all that hard at this.

    I don’t really do predictions, but I do like the Leopards to win an ugly and close game.

    Offense rules the day in 2018, but these two squads missed that memo. A display of offensive futility will take place on Saturday in Easton that will remind old timers of the good old days. Coach Luke Thompson still has intimate knowledge of the Hoya’s offensive scheme and personnel, and therefore the Pards win 13-7.

    That was last season, where the two teams combined for seven points...Lafayette 7-0.

    With a new OC at Georgetown, the Hoyas should be better than that.
    Georgetown: "We play where we do not compete, and compete where we do not play."

    Vegas also has a sense of humor and tradition (get it?)

    SUNY Ithaca will make this a game.

    LOL love SUNY Ithaca....Pards to get 2nd win, focus on Bucknell next week for third! If so, would tie them for wins for last year.
