Re: Delaware Schedules Navy

I did the LA exacta a decade ago: ND/USC in the Coliseum one week, UCLA/USC in the Rose Bowl the next. I loved the whole vibe in and around the Coliseum. The best thing about the Rose Bowl is the view. You really can’t beat that setting.

Re: ESPN College Football 150: The American Game

I grew up in Delaware (Stadium), where my father is in the school's athletic hall of fame. Went to (defending national hoops and lax champ) UVa undergrad. Started law school at Vandy where I played lacrosse and learned not to hate all country music (just most). Transferred back to UVa to finish law ...

Re: Richmond

Total is 47.5. Spiders coming off ridiculous loss to Yale in which they blew a 27-7 lead and gave up two TD's in the final 83 seconds. They also got the crap kicked out of them by Elon, though they managed to do it at home. Beat Maine on the road :) Lost to Fordham :( It's one of those years.

Hens open (or at least at the first line I saw) at -7. I know nothing about UR.

Re: Game Thread: New Hampshire

Lots of New Hampshire play-makers from the Delaware Valley. Annoying.

Re: ESPN College Football 150: The American Game

Yeah, much of it is really good. I love the Sewanee team that won five games in six days, and learning that the first SEC power was Vanderbilt. I went to Vanderbilt and didn't know that. As an LSU fan, I always hated Alabama, but Bear Bryant is just a god. Stuff on Spurrier is good too. The ESPN stu...

Re: New Gameday Gripes (and some kudos)

The stadium announcer is truly cringe-inducing, though I'm sure he's basically doing what he's been told to do. It sounds like a single-A minor league game. Delaware has also adopted the presently popular affinity for filling every spare instant with noise of some sort of noise. It's exhausting, tho...

Re: Can't take it any more

Furman is odd. Have you ever been there? Although the school is lovely, and clearly has some dough, the stadium is practically unchanged since the mid-80’s. I don’t even think the word “Furman” appears on the place; maybe on the scoreboard.

Re: Can't take it any more

This is really more of a rhetorical exercise than anything else - an attempt to get the "Still everything to play for; the season starts against New Hampshire; remember we're young; I think the O-line is really making positive strides; this may be a better Elon team than people thought" crowd a sens...

Re: Can't take it any more

I like to play this game every year or so: Can anyone name a college program, in any sport and at any level, that has fallen farther than the Delaware football program? There are a couple of suspects; USF basketball comes to mind. BYU football? Nebraska football is getting close. Still, when you fac...

Re: Elon Game Thread

I know kids read this board, so I’ll be nice. The level and depth of talent (size, speed, athleticism) at the non-skill positions is shocking for a program like Delaware.

So this would be considered a poor performance, no?
