Upset we didn't get the bye, but this is arguably the easiest opponent we could have gotten for a first round game so at least there's that. Lets bury them and move on to Harrisonburg!! I'll be at the JMU game if we can win this one against Lehigh first.

Agree. We should be able to roll over them. Hoping for no injury. Hoping for an early big lead so that we can withdraw some of the starters for rest.

No pressure on Lehigh for this game. Gift invite to the playoffs.  SBU has to ensure that this doesn't become a trap game.  Petal to the metal the entire game.  Hope Bolden and Bedell are available and ready to roll.
How old a Seawolf am I? I followed them during their Final 4 DIII hoops run in 1977-78 (they were called the Patriots then)

My hope is that we don't need them at all next week. The running game will be fine without Bedell for a week. It's Bolden who I'm worried about. Both need the rest if we're going to give JMU a fight. JMU will have the rest and the extra week to prepare for us, but our defense will keep us in the game against anyone we play and we've won at BFS in the past.

It's very unlikely unless we really pull up some genius marketing work. Most people don't hear about the game in time. We need to market the game well to the immediate community and the students (most which will be away for thanksgiving). I would say that 5-8k is more likely. That would still be a success. Our job is to spread the word via FB, Twitter, etc

Lehigh is a 5-6 program and weaker than our past home playoff opponents. It being thanksgiving weekend will also kill attendance (I never attended those games when I was a student) and I doubt Lehigh will bring many fans. I'm being bearish and guessing about 5500.

engineers first. 

but, if we can hang around most of the game at 9-1 #19 south florida (yes, they are BCS ranked), then we should be able to hang around with JMU.  we've beaten them before.  upsets happen.  especially in football with turnovers in your favor. 
There are 29,413,039 corporations in America; but only one Chairman of the Board.

Lehigh (5-6) at Stony Brook (9-2), Saturday 2:00
 
What a start Lehigh got off to to begin 2017. Expectations were soaring, they began the season ranked #9 in the CSM FCS Top 25. After five weeks, they sat at 0-5 and appeared to be the biggest disappointment of the year. Finally, Patriot League action came around and the turnaround slowly materialized with a win over Colgate. Little did anyone know how big that victory was, as it was the result in that game that gave them the tiebreaker advantage to winning the conferenceís automatic bid. Lehigh becomes the second team to qualify for the playoffs with a sub-.500 record. The other, ironically, was their long-time rival, Lafayette, who had an identical 5-6 record. The Mountain Hawks have no problems scoring, averaging 36.5 points per game, powered by QB Matt Timochenko and RB Dominick Bragalone. Unfortunately, the defense surrenders 39.4 ppg. Shootouts are their style.
 
Stony Brook seemed to sneak up on the FCS this year. An opening season loss to FBS South Florida should have been a flag to notice, as they only lost 31-17. Then the wins started piling up, and save for a mid-season loss at home to Delaware, they were flawless the rest of the way. Their trip through the CAA involved lighter lifting than it could have, as they missed Elon and James Madison on their schedule. They did beat New Hampshire and Richmond, so they did pass a few of the sterner tests. The Seawolves only surpassed 30 points four times this season, but held all FCS opponents to 24 points or less. The defense gives up just under 100 yards per game.
 
So who will enforce their will? That will be the question. A shootout would definitely seem to favor Lehigh, but if Stony Brook can ground their offense some, the Seawolves offense should be able to mount some solid numbers against a porous defense.
 
Projected Score: Stony Brook 45, Lehigh 21
