They were promoting diversity. They say the school does not have enough diversity. I don't know how we could be more diverse. And promoting the BLM, and LGBT movement as well. We have several in the gay and minority community running the college(which is totally fine). How many more do we need? Is there a quota or something we need to hit? And on the day of the biggest sporting day the of the year Diorio is out there promoting this message. And then I get two emails this from Byerly and Diorio telling me to be tolerant of others and to lecture my kid on being diverse and to treat everyone well, like we didn't already know that and believe that. I must admit we will not miss the lafayette agenda being shoved in our face. And then they offer counseling and cancel some classes due to the election results.  And then we have gay faculty that get close to a student and end up marrying them later. I always thought Lafayette was very diverse.

No wonder we had to bring back McCutcheon; what competent, enthusiastic, self-respecting person would put themselves in this disgusting, non-sensical scenario? I have to believe, harking back to Weiss's arguments with Jack and others, that this was all his plan. Byerly is just realizing he set her up for failure. What a mess.

When I suggested to Alison that athletics report to her just before she started the job four years ago, she said she would be too busy and felt it could be done by Diorio and Bruce!


Do you think she realizes that D'orio has too much on her plate and is not getting results. Second, does she realizes she has to delegate to a strong AD. She certainly is not filling out Lafayette tax returns but has someone competent doing it. Hire competency and delegate, that is the secret to good management. I support that and I support the study.....if it recommends and gets good outcomes. It is also why I was interested in having alumni on the committee who are not dependent on others on the committee for their job.

Watching the recording now. The inability to block and tackle is remarkable.
The failure of the slow-to-develop plays is all too predictable.

Walked by a post game tailgate on a road after the game and people were talking about the " if you can play" 4 minute commercial. They were confused as to what it had to do with the game. Didn't hear the whole conversation, though.

It was not a coincidence it was played in the middle of the first quarter, when the most eyes were on the game.

Let's take the new uniforms and shove them. Our colors are Maroon and White. We're not attracting recruits with fancy uniforms and a 2-9 record.

Why don't we take the money and pay some assistants or put a dent in another scholarship.

Today's game was gross. Gross in the fact that it was embarrassing to watch, and watch FT walk off that field the same way he does after every loss. There was 12,000+ fans there, and it should be more than that every year for this great rivalry.

I will not give another dollar or support or endorsement of Lafayette until something changes. It is embarrassing that this is acceptable.


I was in Section SEC row LL and there were SWATHS of empty seats around me the whole game!

No sarcasm. Truly sorry for Pards. This year was by far the most boring and quiet pre game week I can remember. No smack no zest.


What happened to the tailgating on March Field? There were no cars allowed on it. The only tailgating on campus - besides the very quiet and subdued Markle decks - was a batch of kids behind DKE. And I saw no Lehigh kids on campus before the game. Were they dropped off at Fisher and told to go directly into stadium or what?! Years past the busses would drop them off on Sullivan Trail and they would stream onto March literally by the busload.

An astute Lehigh fan's comment on AGS in response to a string of posts referencing the demonstration at the main gate:

"According to the LC board, the VP of Campus Life (who the AD happens to directly report to) organized the demonstration. If that is the case, then the current state of athletics on College Hill should come as no surprise. If the goal of LC athletics is to be a means of promoting a political platform rather than to compete and advance the stature of the college through success on the playing field, Lafayette will continue to suffer through disappointing losing seasons.

The apathy and lack of action concerning their downward spiral is truly a shame for the Leopards' fans. They are a dedicated bunch, as evidenced by their top-rate facilities and impressive Rivalry week contributions. It's telling that 152 wasn't even remotely close to a sellout despite a 70 degree sunny day in November. They pulled in over 15,900 back in 2008 on the most miserable day out of the ten I've attended--the wind chill was in the teens."

What year was the last year for the four temporary stands in the end zones (2 on each end) which would boost the attendance on a sellout at Fisher to 17K+?? Was it when they revamped the stadium and built Bourger in 2006?  Somehow I believe it was before that.

Based on the number of police officers killed while sitting in their cars over the weekend, I would expect Ms Diorio to organize a Police Lives Matter protest march tomorrow.

Due to the mention of the emails/open letters/social media posts/demonstration at the football game... it's clear the college and the departments/staff are still upset/in denial of the election.

Apparently the term " acceptance" is subjective.

If memory serves me, this picture is from the 2006 Lehigh game (or may 2008 or 2010 since the Bourger Football House is finished).  In any case, it's after the renovation.

Kudos to the LU fan who learned that Diorio organized the "protest" before the game.  I am shocked and outraged at that.  Diorio is out of control IMHO.  

The overwhelming majority of  people who attended Rivalry 152 were there to see a football game, not to deal with the Diversity Agenda.  I couldn't care less about diversity when I am headed to a LC Athletic Event.  I walked through the phalanx of "protesters" although most people walked around them.  But I did not stop to talk to any of them.  This misbegotten attempt to use athletic events to protest is beyond the pale IMHO and is a sure fire way to turn off alums and LC Athletics fans.  The poor performance of the teams is enough of a turnoff, and now this.  I  just can't believe how far we have sunk in pandering the the diversity police.  

Please don't get me wrong: I think diversity is important and I support much of it.  For example, the Posse Program has brought a large group of minority students to LC who never would have attended without it.  Many of those students have made a major contribution to the College.

L88, I assumed as much as I looked at the layout during the game - no way to have the 2 temp stands erected after Bourger. It was probably early 00s. Interesting query though and perhaps we can determine via photo evidence.

There are temporary bleachers in front of Kirby in this picture.  I don't remember seeing them on Saturday.

I posted it on here after the game on Saturday about the demonstration at the front gate. I spoke briefly with Dioreo who organized the event. She was at the front of the line leading the charge. And she is the lady over the Consulting team and committee that is going to fix our Athletics. Forgive me if I don't feel good about the outcome. And to make matters worse she has Byerly's ear. that was not the time or place for the person over athletics to organize a diversity demonstration.
