The 2003 National Championship Team was ranked ahead of both Penn State and Notre Dame in the final USA Today Sagarin ratings. Its a crazy world. Anything can happen.

I think some poster forgot Dave Brock has been gone for some time now. I don't see the debacle at Pitt happening again with the current coaches and admin.

The game against VaTech was more than respectable and thats how I see UD playing these games going forward.


This is a great game in many ways for this program and UD and we play it without any hesitation.

A FBS game in the heart of our recruiting area is a good thing ... I am a proponent of playing FBS teams in our primary recruiting area. And the players love playing these games and that translates directly to them being a big recruiting tool; especially in Pennsylvania in this case. The same can be said for having Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland or Rutgers on the schedule when we recruit kids from our other primary recruiting areas of Virginia, Maryland and New Jersey.

... Bernard, Eric, Chrissi, Jerry O, Carl, KC, Dave and Danny have all tired ... the Owls have nothing to gain playing us ... a lopsided win for them is still a loss if the visiting fans outnumber or equal to the home fans ... time to move on.

To regenerate and expand interest in the program(increased revenue and contributions), move to FBS and reestablish regional rivalries - Temple, Navy, Rutgers, Army, etc. Not sure why this is so hard to understand. Create a level playing field with them - there is very little upside for them "playing down" against "little" Delaware with a potential for a loss. Recently spoke with someone associated with UD who played for one of the regional FBS programs, he totally agreed with me.....We don't have the same level of excitement and local interest at these FCS games.

Let's not become another DSU by scheduling up against teams we can't possibly win against.

Quick story- in the late 80’s I became good friends with a man who played at penn state, was mentioned numerous times in Patrnos book (they were there in paternos very early years).

This person NEVER liked paterno and stated numerous times in the 90’s he should retire. He thought the administration was so beholden to him they were pathetic. This is a man who also thought Sandusky was a genius. My friend passed away a few years ago before the scandal.

Any university can get greedy for what a program brings in due to a cult of personality. It could happen at Duke with coach K, it could happen at Uconn with Gino, it could happen anywhere. It’s human greed and cowardice, nothing new.

What the admin did was inexcusable and likely many young men’s lives will never be the same. But at some point people need to move on. These kids had nothing to do with it. By all accounts , Franklin is first class.
