Lehighs def today is much different then the team that played u penn .Their lbs are extremely active and very good !
Lehigh has a. Much better team then their record shows . There defense will keep their team in this game . Their offense is outstanding ! Don't make your travel plans just yet
This lehigh team is playing the way they where supposed play back in the early part of the Season. You know that old saying iabout college football " it's bettter to lose early then late " well nothing is more true about this lehigh team

It's lehigh.. If this game is nothing but a blowout, I'll be shocked. if we lose this game then the the FCS rankings and stony brook 10th place ranking is totally obscure...

lehigh has scholarship kids they just don't have the caa depth
You can't get financial aid and play in the patriot league
Lehigh gets kids from Saint Thomas aquainas , don bosco , Saint Peter's prep , st Joes prep , red bank catholic these are not roll over kids . These kids play till the end !

did anyone do a poll update this week?  i was out of town but catching up now...

STATS #10 http://www.fcs.football/cfb/polls.asp?div=fcs

Coaches #11 http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/fcs-coaches-poll

Simple #11 http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/football/fcs/simple-ratings-system

CSM #15 http://www.collegesportsmadness.com/fcs-football/top-25-rankings

CBS #11 https://www.cbssports.com/collegefootball/rankings/full

Compughter #5 http://www.compughterratings.com/FCS/rankings

Good stuff, but based on having to play #1 JMU in 2nd round (assuming a victory over Lehigh), we effectively received the #16 seed, below each of the above final rankings.  The same logic implies that Lehigh received the #17 seed.  Both seem quite flawed, but it is what it is.
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)

The seeds were BS, but I wouldn't mind playing JMU in the second round. If anything they got screwed more than we did. They're playing a top 10 team in the quarter final as the #1 seed while NDSU as the #2 could wind up playing against non scholarship San Diego.

Good point, re:JMU.   The New Hampshire seeding is most puzzling since they finished 2 games behind us PLUS lost the head-to-head against us, which effectively makes it a 3-game difference, strength of schedule aside.  Didn't bother to read all the geography restrictions, but was NH being 600+ miles away from Virginia a factor taken into consideration for 2nd round as well?

I could be wrong, but my understanding is that the only true seeds that matter are the 1-8...meaning presuming all of the actually seeded teams win their first matchup, they are playing the appropriate team in the third week of playoffs (i.e. #1 JMU plays #8 Southern Utah)...the unseeded teams playing this weekend are based primarily on geography and intriguing matchups for next week (i.e. SBU potentially playing JMU, a league matchup that may draw more attention then were we to play Central Arkansas or Wofford).

Just as we are complaining that we got screwed by lining up to play JMU should we advance...think of JMU's gripe...they are #1 overall and may have to play the 10th team in the country, from the CAA in their first game...doesn't seem fair to them either

I briefly talked to Shawn Heilbron about this topic last night at the men's basketball game and he clearly agrees with us that SB got screwed with this lineup we are in.. He said the committee told him it has everything to do with geographic's!!!!! So , I guess Central Arkansas is closer  then  JMU,Virginia??? UNH is clearly the darlings of the CAA!!!!

Wanted to take a brief moment to wish you all a very pleasant Thanksgiving Day and dinner (If you observe it...). I'm thankful for the opportunity my mother had to come to the USA and bring us here. This opened the doors to a lot of opportunities including being able to root for our Seawolves! (had to tie it to sports somehow... lol)

LETS GO WOLVES!!!!!
