Lehigh seems to be having quite a hard time finalizing their non-conference schedule. Out of 353 D1 programs, the Mountain Hawks are among just 38 who have yet to reveal theirs.

Via Twitter, they have revealed games at Auburn, Yale, St Mary's and Virginia Tech.

no wonder it took so long, looks like they could not get home schedule filled out.

Yes, that is an awful home schedule, to say the least. For those who haven't heard of it, Cairn University is a tiny Philly Christian college that accepts 98% of applicants. If they had to go the D3 route, it might have been nice to schedule a local such as Muhlenberg or Moravian.

In total, LU will have 30 games on its schedule, which exceeds the 29-game max for teams who don't participate in an official multi-team event. I'm trying to figure out which three games would be MTE events. The only other option is that one of those D3 games is not even even being counted by Lehigh as an official game. I know their game with Misericordia is not an official game for Misericordia - but there are times a D1/D3 match-up is an official game for one team and an exhibition for the other.

This Lehigh schedule shows how lucky we are that Bucknell is able to put together the home schedules it does. There has never been a Sojka schedule as bad as playing Monmouth, Cairn, Misericordia, and Yale - and only the first one of the scholarship era was even remotely close. If I were a season ticket holder, I think I'd be demanding my money back.

For reference, here are the home OOC games BU has played each year in the scholarship era, plus the total # of OOC games in parentheses. Prior to PL expansion, they played more total OOC games of course.


2003-04 ( 13 ) Yale , Dickinson , Penn , Ursinus , Cornell
2004-05 ( 14 ) Rider , St. Francis , RMU , Niagara ,
2005-06 ( 13 ) Yale , Villanova , Cornell , Haverford , St. Joes
2006-07 ( 14 ) Wake , No. Iowa * , Towson *
2007-08 ( 15 ) Albany , Marist , St. Francis , LaSalle , Cornell , Ohio
