I believe these guys will win at least one PL title before they leave. Go get email guys! Can't wait for spring ball!


I don't know anything about the recruits but I couldn't feel better about the head coach hire. I really think it was a home run hire. I think Garrett will bring a consistency to winning as well as some championships along the way. Have always felt LC could be great. If anyone deserves it, it's the alumni base who are tremendously supportive.

No, I don't watch any of the basketball feeds, and if this has been going on for a few weeks that is unfortunate.

All I am saying is that the ability for this board to 1. look for things to complain about and 2. work itself into a full lather in 60 seconds flat is funny to me.


I'm incredulous to your reaction. Big build up on the website to one of the biggest sports days of the year. Many of us look forward to the day and to LC's coverage. Then, like so many other events, the broadcast was AGAIN a failure. Extremely frustrating! Wake up, 10! LC was a leader in this stuff, now other schools have followed suit w/out problems. Our kids and parents deserved better.

Main point though, we had turned the page as of 11pm last night. You resurrected it.

And to Fly, where do you think Lehigh would be without 1 family? Not sure I understand re-raising the admin support issue today? Let the study play out, we have 15 scholarships. Progress, why are you stirring the pot, today?


Just saw your comment. I was responding to Seenalot's comment. I had some surgery and have not visited the site in a couple of weeks. I realized yesterday was something going Day so I decided to see how we did. Yes, I am disappointed about the broadcast because I wanted it to be great for those new kids coming in. But in the overall scheme it doesn't really matter. And this area has usually been a strength of LC.  These kids have a chance at a new start, a new beginning. Garrett can change a lot of it but not everything. You're right, maybe the study comes up with something to help the program. But the frustration runs deep. I really hope Byerly and the board commit 100% to winning on a regular basis.

Your post was about the failed stream?  Sorry i missed that.  I really dont want to be part of continuing this stuff on this thread. I fully support the new staff and all the players who work hard to improve and win.

Back to the football action: Here are links to Paul Reinhard's coverage in the paper and in his blog.

Reading Reinhard made me realize that the total weight of the OL recruiting class is three-quarters of a ton.Shocked

However, any calculation of the OL's actual cumulative mass (i.e., its resistance to acceleration independent of gravitation force) will have to await the start of the season.Cool

Throwweight is important. Accuracy is more important.
Tomorrow is the last day of the Lafayette show at the Grolier. If I drag myself out of the Strand Rooftop Bar (the hotel is now not the Strand but some kind of Marriott in the making) I'm going to see it.
Scratch that. The Morgan has its three-Martini lunch also at night and Its a bargain. I wish I could post pictures. The guitar/cello duo just cranked up Deep Purple. Smoke on the Water. Really! Unplugged.

Go Garrett! Finally there is newness and hope!
Thank you Frank. You won and you helped keep this program going.

Still the change is like shedding fetters. It was time!
