First off, I’ve not vilified anyone, except those directly implicated in the crimes. However, I do think the general community’s rush to get back to business as usual was/still is heartless at worst and blissfully clueless at best.

Honestly, I couldn’t care less about denying sports fans entertainment on Saturdays. If the institution had a modicum of decency, they would have voluntarily eliminated football without any NCAA intervention to send the message that no university pursuit will ever again be as important as the well-being of young people. If the PSU community had any sense of decency, they would have overwhelming DEMANDED the same thing. The fact that the majority didn’t, speaks volumes. If anything, they’ve largely been complicit in the effort to undo recent history and sweep it under the rug. They've seemingly moved past it all with very little penance. Thankfully, there are still some honest, conscientious alumi (in the vast minority, sadly), who recognize truth and have put this thing into proper perspective.

I don't know where the line should be drawn for giving the death penalty to a college FB program, but child rape and conspiracy to cover it up seems like a good place to start. For goodness sake, please don't ever cast pay to play or prostitution or phone cards or getting into fights or recruiting violations in the same stratosphere as the crimes that were committed at PSU. That's just embarrassing, dude.

Suggesting that the PSU community should have demanded that the FB program be shut down to serve as an example hardly fits into the scope of vilification. We'll have to agree to disagree that continuing on as if nothing ever happened serves the greater good more than a definitive act of contrition would have done. The greater PSU community continues to bury its collective head in the sand and appears to have a burning desire to want to continue denying the truth. They'll erect another statue to old JoePa soon enough, just like they fought to have his wins restored and NCAA sanctions lifted.

It's sickening to me, but you have the right to think it's perfectly dandy. Buy a dozen tickets to see UD play PSU, if it floats you're boat. Hell, donate to the JoePa statue fund for all I care. I don't intend to try to persuade you one way or another and, absent a any type of compelling argument, you won't be moving the needle for me either.

Peace.

As a Newark native, 3rd generation Blue Hen and former VTAA Chapter President, I wondered "What's new with Delaware Football?", only to come back online and again see the circular firing squad.

In the mid '90s, as a recent grad, I used to say Delaware should be playing Rutgers, Maryland and Penn State every year...now the program has waited so long they could actually play them in the same conference.

25 freaking years since and another 15 or so since Delaware's Little All America years. As we pass 40 years of apathy and the fading memory of the "glory days", we seem to aspire merely to waste our legacy. Other than NDSU, if only because of their long-standing status of achievement, I find nothing in the 2018 schedule to inspire me to return to Newark beyond the opportunity to visit family. A schedule consisting of URI, Lafayette, Richmond, Elon, UNH, Towson, Albany, Stony Brook and Villanova is a window into the lack of aspiration the University has as an institution, let alone the utter disregard for a potential fan base of 175,000+ alumni plus residents of the State of Delaware by it's Land Grant flagship.

If athletics are the front porch of a university, UD's living in a brick triple-wide with holes in the floor and leaky plumbing. How many of our fellow Blue Hens and Delawareans won't step onto such a porch? Well, as the News Urinal reported in November in an article about (delayed again, shocking) renovations: "What is now a 22,000-seat stadium will actually get a fraction smaller, which hardly matters considering Delaware hasn’t averaged more than 19,000 fans since 2011 and 2017 average attendance was 16,648, the highest in four years." Gone are the days apparently pre-keg ban when Blue Hens might boast they had 40,000 at the game - 20,000 in the stands and another 20,000 tailgating. No need to tell me to get off your lawn, old man...I'm already gone. No need to call, just send me a postcard if you miraculously decide to move the program out of the kiddie pool.

My opinion is Penn St. football should have got the death sentence for at least10 years! UD should not be playing them!

If UD plays this game they should get paid handsomely.

Announced today JMU playing at Louisville in '22 to the tune of $600K.

money talks and bullsh*t walks. A big time payday, if we can get it, certainly wouldn't hurt, but it would behoove us to pick up a game within a reasonable driving distance for our fans( maybe play Tennessee) and a limited travel ticket so as not to eat up the pay day.
