Do it! Please do it! Hysterical. The only issue is Kempton may not know who Beaker is and they need a chant or taunt. Something to get him going like....

NBA......Ha!
NBA.......Ha!

Sounds good. Or NBA - not!

One nickname that's been used for him is Tiny Tim - for his character and his brains.

I'm certainly no fan of Kempton's but I wouldn't be too quick to taunt him. I watched the Lehigh game on Sunday and he carried that team on his shoulders. He benefited from some highly questionable calls but that is part of the game. If Lehigh loses tomorrow, then Kempton's college career is probably over. Moreover, he has incentive to prove that he should have been POY. I know he's childish but I don't want to give him, or his teammates, extra incentive. It could very well backfire. The very last thing I want to see is Kempton cutting the net at Sojka.

Right now Lehigh owns Bucknell. We have Muscala, they have McCollum. We have Kansas, they have Duke. We have Nana, they have Kempton. Their endowment is higher than ours and they beat us 2 games to zero this year. Owned. We are the underdog. This game is a foregone conclusion once they get out on the court the critical time is now until the game starts. Everything Bucknell has done has to change. Practice time? Double it. Nana has to stop telegraphing where he goes on the court, OReilly needs to stop shooting just threes. Zach has to stop the game within the game of toughness one upmanship and Stephen Brown need to get out of his bubblitis and think soft rainbow shots are the only thing in town. Think like you did when you were a freshman Stephen! Lehigh is coming to punch us in the face, and we're not going to be ready. Lehigh is a solid team but the Bucknell coaches need to find Lehighs achilles heel, which isn't hard to see. They certainly have found ours. When the players know they have this game down and play it, only then we can win. I want to see Bucknell get to the big dance, I want to see more if they got it within themselves to get there. Good luck Bucknell.

The idea of taunting Kempton in a way that questions his talent reminds me of when we had another big Lehigh at Bucknell game, and the students thought it would be a good idea to chant "overrated" at CJ McCullom. Later, he hit a clutch dagger shot in the final seconds of the game and stared into the student section, rightfully so.

All of which is to say, I don't think that's a great idea.

If the decision is to taunt that whiny brat, then please by all means use it and taunt. Others have a valid point of taunting here when we are 0-2 is a bit asking for it, but some of my best Bucknell memories were bringing rolls of aluminum foil when we played Colgate and Adonal Foyle.

I think one key to the game will be Kimbal's play. In the two games vs Lehigh this year, Kimbal is 6-19 with 17 points, not good. If Kimbal plays well I think we'll win.

Another key is Bruce and Avi's defense on Price. Price has killed us this year and throughout his career. This year he is 12-25 from the floor, 7-14 from 3 and had scored 41 points in the two matchups.

This game has me nervous but I think we will pull it out in a nail biter, Wednesday can't get here soon enough.

I'm all for taunting Kempton. CJ was smooth with it and always seemed to be undaunted. And no offense to cam ayers, but CJ knew he couldn't cover him. Nana can cover Kempton. I really thought that Nana won POY in the game against Lehigh. Some of the blocks that Nana had on Kempton were demoralizing.

Which brings me to my point in taunting. CJ was a killer...to me Kempton is not and has been a whiny brat his whole career. You can get under his skin...especially if Nana has a few of those demoralizing blocks. CJ couldn't be stopped.

To taunt or not to taunt? That is the question. I'm with BRW. This guy and this team are playing their best ball of the year right now. We need to be one point better! It will get done on the court, not in the bleacher seats.

I guess it's a matter of nuance. I'm all for giving him and everyone else a general hard time, keeping it clean and classy. It was the specific notion of questioning his talent that raised the spectre of the McCullom game. (The aluminum "Foyle" was nothing like that.)

How about a poster of him standing in his dad's shadow?

Not that it matters, but I think there is a 99% chance Lehigh will put up the money for a pay-for-play event if they lose - either the CIT,CBI, or the Vegas16. Remember they put up the money to continue their season four years ago and got to travel to Wyoming (and lose).

Agree with some of the above comments re CJ and Kempton. CJ his last three years displayed a lot of class. Kempton is perhaps the most classless player in PL history. There are stories from LU students that he is not well-liked by his teammates fwiw.

It is such a tough decision, and Kempton's personality and antics just make you want to taunt him. Oh the Lehigh fans are going to love me, as I was fortunate enough to get tickets through their site... so I'm assuming my seats are right in the mix with all of the Lehigh faithful.

Make sure to wear plenty of orange so that you stand out from the hideous Lehigh brown.

Taunt! It doesn't even have to be verbal. The Beaker poster is perfect.

Agree with 137 - CJ was always a cool dude. Kempton not!

Looks like there should be a decent Lehigh crowd at the game. According to lehigh90 on the Lehigh Sports Form, "Lehigh added a second bus for fans, and another student bus apparently. According to email I received. Sounds like 3 buses coming from campus."

GO BISON!

Do you know why Lehigh uses brown for their colors?
