Re: Game Thread: Villanova

I recall a few years back one of the usual suspect dopes on here proudly announced that he didn’t care if there were only 100 people at UD home games, he’d be one of them. I have some really great news for him: he’ll get to prove it next season, where you will be able to hunt deer safely and respons...

Let's leave all that up to a vote of the 634 season ticket holders next year.

Re: Game Thread: Stony Brook

Stony Brook scored as many points in the final 1:32 at Villanova as it did in Newark all day. I am hoping that now that we’re drawing like Nova, maybe we can start playing like Nova. #goodseatsavailable

Re: Rocco - An Objective evaluation?

Delaware has recorded 6 sacks this season. It has given up 33. I am not going to scour the nation's stats for a more ridiculous disparity, but that's incredible. Folks on the Board like to talk about getting more aggressive. OK, aggressive with what? When you can't get there with 7, 8, 9, whatever, ...

Re: It could even be worse...

" Rocco wants to win more than you and I and the whole board put together ." I doubt that very much. Mr. Rocco gets paid big money whether the Hens are 8-4 or 4-8. I'm sure he'd rather win than lose, but he'll be just fine either way. For many on this board, the football team becoming irrelevant is ...

Re: Game Thread: Albany

Have Wesley or Del State had to move a home game because their field was unplayable, or had a pressbox with no power during a game over the past 20 years?

Strange broadcast no mics on the field
That’s the worst. We used to run into that at Lehigh. As previously noted, we were going to run into it at Nova once before my dad threw a chair through the window. It’s almost unlistenable when you can’t hear the crowd.,

I’m as bearish on the Hens football, um, “program” as anyone in the country, but 14 sounds like a lot here.

Re: New Gameday Gripes (and some kudos)

Pitt mic's its band. Someone told me it's to "balance out the sound" in that big (empty dump of a) ballpark they play in, but I would have to defer to any acoustical engineers in the audience on that one. It's not a small band, so perhaps that is true. I recall watching the Duke band perform at half...

Re: 2019 season as of 3:40 pm

You guys are acting like the whole “winning the second half” thing never happened. We not only won the second half, we won it by 8 points! That’s gotta count for something. It won’t be long before Delaware is back to beating the Elon’s, Jacksonville’s and Sacred Heart’s of the world. Lots to build o...

Re: Can't take it any more

I’d be curious to hear about that conversation with Brey. I’ve had a few of those over the past 30 years. Sometimes “Small Wonder” is less of a slogan than it is a state of mind.
