    My dad and I (our spouses were long gone to warm up at The Goose) were there at the end of that cold game. Not sure I could feel my feet, but …

    Coldest time I’ve ever been exposed to for that long. Second-coldest day I remember — a windy one north of Chicago walking on ice-filled sidewalks.

    Still shaking. We showed up in 2nd. O and D were superb. Remarkable given our 1st half yips.
    Sterrett said it best. Kids learned how to win.

    That was a heckuva comeback. I heard the radio guys say it was like season as a whole.First half was like the 0-5 start. Second half was like league play. .
    At halftime, I was thinking it’s over. Lafayette’s only second half score is the kick return. How do they turn it off and on like that?

    it was served up on a platter first half with the fumbles, no fumbles and it would be a blow out

    Didn’t Lafayette do the same thing a few years ago. They went 0-5 in OOC games and then 5-1 in the PL to win the title?

    Take away the fumbles and penalties and this is a rout.

    The defense actually played well, the second half especially.

    Game was a microcosm of the season, a Jekyl and Hyde type of year!

    Please put forth a stellar effort in the playoffs!

    Down by Double Digits, Halftime Speech Sparks Lehigh’s #Rivalry153 Rally As Lehigh Wins 38-31

    Funny, a few of you mentioned the last game at Taylor and the weather conditions. Lots more people stayed until the end this year, but many never made it in due to the conditions.

    A few game comments/questions …

    1) There have been some great LU-LAF passes over the years. That winning one from Mayes to Casey was the best, most important pass-catch combo in recent memory. It was an absolute thing of beauty. A Holy Shit moment to me.

    Anyone else think this ranks as one of the top pass-catches in LU-LAF history, if not LU history?

    2) Anyone else think this game ranks as one of the tops among 153? Combine the weather, the turnovers and the sheer second-half dominance of LU on both sides of the ball and what the win means.

    3) The D was good, but keep in mind LC has an utterly awful offense. From the Morning Call’s Paul Reinhard:

    “Lafayette, which rushed for only 243 yards all year before Saturday, got 187, including 95 by wide receiver Nick Pearson.”

    An most of those were in the first half.

    Staggering numbers.

    Expect a shootout this weekend.

    4) The OL and Brags continued to blow out opponents in second half. Mayes threw some balls up for grabs, but our guys did well to pick many of them up. He made some awesome (yet dangerous) passes across a long field. #gunslinger. Slants were awesome!

    5) What can we say about special teams? Perhaps our best kickoff (slight exaggeration) of the day was when Mish kicked it out of bounds and Lafayette got it at the 35. Coverage/return issues. Mish was awesome with his punts and scoring on Saturday.

    I’m optimistic about Stony Brook. Limit mistakes and make a few stops. Earn a trip to James Madison. Just an opportunity to beat them would be amazing.
