Re: 2020 SEASON ALTERNATIVE

Watching games from when we were relevant depresses me.

Re: Live Construction Footage

Yes, the new guy is awful. In his defense, I assume he’s only doing what he’s been told to do, and what damn near every other school in the country does. I would note, though, that LSU has none of that nonsense, and they seem to be doing OK.

Re: Live Construction Footage

It funny how it impossible to think of UD football and not hear Elbert’s voice. He was as mild-mannered and decent a guy as you’d ever meet. He didn’t really want the job, and didn’t really have the voice for it. Somehow, though, it was all glorious.

Re: UD to cut Sports?

Brown cut 11 sports (while adding two) despite it being, well, Brown, and having at $4B endowment.

Re: UD to cut Sports?

The fascinating things about Furman’s cuts (aside from making my two FU lacrosse hats collectors items) were 1) that they impacted one in every 11 male students at a school that is already 57% female; and 2) they publicly stated that the sports would remain dropped EVEN IF some big donor or donors s...

Re: Hero Sports realignment article has UD in the American

This is always a fun exercise but like we mentioned before, UD partnering with JMU, UConn, UMass should be a given in a new American. I think academic parity still plays into any move. Thus, SDSU and Boise St to the Pac-12, IMO, isn't realistic. BYU really is the only fit. Oh and why would Buffalo ...

Re: Live Construction Footage

I've been trying to get an answer as to whether the new box will also be named for my father for more than two years now. It's kind of a trick question, because the answer I am sure is "no," but I think my mom would like to know that while she's still above ground. Happy pandemic, everyone.

Re: Season in Jeopardy

Yup; it's a legit disaster. The Hen women graduate EVERYONE up front. I'm sure there they have a gaggle of frosh-to-be expecting to walk into significant time. Actually, given anticipated Hen losses, another transition year might really be a blessing for them.

Re: Season in Jeopardy

Lots to work out, but I suspect they'll get their years. How THIS year's stats are going to count and such will have to be cleaned up. I suspect they'll wind up boing wiped altogether. Who knows. Uncharted territory. It sucks, because we'd have killed Hopkins, which would have been fun.

Re: Season in Jeopardy

This was coming. I was hoping we could squeeze in the Hens (+2.5) women's lax game at Louisville today, but I'm not surprised. Whether it all makes sense, who knows, but it does seem like countries that took extreme measures seem to be doing better than ones that didn't. My question is when does "mo...

Re: Season in Jeopardy

The sad truth is that the only difference is that UD can't be sued if someone catches this thing walking down the street.

Re: Season in Jeopardy

Serious question: How is attending a lacrosse game at Delaware Stadium (assuming folks are required to spread out; and god knows there's room to spread out at Delaware lacrosse games) any different from, say, walking down the street?

Re: Marist

The Tigers have, indeed, played a relatively strong schedule. Cornell and Georgetown are legit Final Weekend contenders. UMBC and Loyola are decent. Hopkins blows, and Mount St. Mary's is Mount St. Mary's. It's not just that the Tigers have gone 0-6 against that slate, it's that they've only really ...

Re: Marist

Marist faces-off well - 62% for the year - and hit for 70% against Delaware. Although the Hens are 5th in the CAA at the X, Drexel and Fairfield aren't lots better. I would probably agree that UMass would be the CAA favorite of the moment. Like most teams this year, though, their results have been a...
