LEHIGH ENGINEERS

Recommended Posts

Up until a day or two ago the LU schedule was showing a dual against Oklahoma in South Beach even though Oklahoma had long ago bowed out and was replaced by Missouri.  Then the schedule was briefly amended to show a dual against Missouri.  Then the Missouri dual was deleted. But Missouri's schedule shows a dual against LU.  I guess this is what the journalists call a "fluid situation."

As for the LU alum's inquiry about The Oracle, I think I heard he's in Delphi.  Or was it Philadelphia?

Wow, cool - this thread is just like the old Lehigh Forum! :-P

"No Peace In Heaven... Or Bethlehem".

It's like a whole nother set of wrestling fans now have a view into the curious mind of a lehigh fan. Wait until all the complaining about "anonymous posters" grumblings start up, as if these old Lehigh geezers are going to show up at your doorstep to relive their glory days of hand to hand combat!

The funny thing is they will portray this as the cranky old Lehigh fan group arguing, when in reality its the opposite, it's the "younger" (using the term liberally) alumni trying to get the old boys network to wake up before they ruin a good thing.....

It's a sad day when Scribe becomes the dreaded P word.......predictable

It's a shame Lehigh discontinued the video webcast of their wrestle-offs.  Fans are really starved for action this time of year. 

It's almost as if Lehigh thinks they're preventing their guys from getting scouting.  Someone should tell them Flo has matches of their entire roster stretching back to middle school available on-demand, 24/7/365.

The great debate among LU fans is and has been to what extent the discontinuation is designed to boost attendance at the event and/or to keep these bouts "top secret".  Only the wrestlers' hairdresser knows for sure.

Definitely disappointed that Wrestleoffs will not be streamed.  It's never an amazing watch, but it gives us a chance to see new recruits in action as well as look at the team as a whole.  I'm five hours away (with "normal" traffic) and taking in effect two days off to watch this event is a non-starter- not to mention that I have two small kids.

Being able to watch the team online help[s me stay a part of the program.

125 – Brandon Paetzell vs. Mitchell Polito (or Luke Resnick)
133 – Jaret Lane vs. Joe Lobeck
133 – Connor McGonagle vs. Nick Farro
141 – Ryan Pomrinca vs. Malyke Hines
149 – Jimmy Hoffman vs. Luke Karam
157 – A.J. Burkhart vs. Josh Humphreys
165 – Chase Gallik vs. Brian Meyer
165 – Luca Frinzi vs. Trey Cornish
          Edmond Ruth vs. Kent Lane
          Jake Logan vs. Andrew Shedleski
184 – Chris Weiler vs. Eli Grape
197 – Elijah Jones vs. Andrew McDonald

Pretty interesting slate of matches. There's a good amount of talent on the team, but it remains to be seen if any of the guys beyond Kutler and Wood can up their game to the AA level. High hopes for Humphries, who came close last year, as well as Jake, Weiler and the returning Karam. Paetzell, Lobeck and Farro have always been solid, hopefully one of them can make a breakthrough. Several intriguing Freshmen who will probably redshirt.

You sure about McGonagle? Seems strange he is wrestling Farro in wrestle offs if he is definitely shirting, you'd think he'd wrestle LoBeck or Lane if he was going to red shirt........but who knows.......I would admit it would make sense, unless he is clearly better than Farro.......

No score after one. Gallick down and up and out early in the second.

 Meyer TD and Gallik escape and its 2-2 after two. Meyer takes neutral.

Meyer trailed 4-3 but gets a TD in final seconds to beat Gallik 5-4.

133 | Jaret Lane vs. Joe Lobeck, first of two bouts @133...

Lobeck a couple TDs leads 4-1 after one. He's down to begin the second.

Lobeck up 5-1 after two. Lane takes neutral.

Rally for young Jaret as a Big 3rd period for Lane. 2 TDs and a 2 near fall give him a 7-6 win.
