The reality is there are one or two Tubbby Deciples on the site who always have their blue and gold colored glasses on who can’t say anything negative about the program, and there are one or two Chicken Littles who can’t say anything positive. I personally believe the vast majority of “Go Henners” are much more balanced in their perspectives...those who give praise when deserved, but also aren’t afraid to call out criticism when warranted. Let’s hope Coach Rocco has a few tricks up his sleeve and keeps the momentum going.

UD was a marginal playoff team last year and they lost significant talent from that squad. As a result, I didn't expect them to look like a well oiled unit at this stage, the question is, how much can they progress prior to and during the upcoming season.

BHBill- Keeler broke the spring game balloon at UD years ago and most coaches would probably not play it if they didn't have to.

I really have no idea what to expect this year, and refuse to look beyond the first two games.

For game #1 vs. DSU, I want to see a dominating performance, with high energy and no doubts about who should be playing where.

For game #2 vs. URI, I want to see a team that is still pissed about that awful start last year, and the lethargic effort that was put forth. It is time to wash off the stink of that game.

You have to crawl before you walk, and walk before you run. Let's get it going and not stumble out of the gate. That will give us a better idea of where we are headed.

I am not sure either what will happen this year but I don’t think it will be as bad as some may think. After all, this is the CAA and FCS. With that said, In Rocco’s third year we are really talking about crawling and walking? In this post CEO era, it is long past time to be running. Doubtful that it is this year but stranger things have happened.

A little troubled that it sounds like we're still not sure what QB basket to put our offensive eggs in. Henderson in a rotation with Kehoe? Of course this time last year, Kehoe's emergence wasn't predicted either.

Hoping someone takes a stranglehold on the job in summer workouts. Worried that a potential rotation would become as predictable as when Walker came in last year (run, run, run). Go Hens.

I think it will be a fun year, and hopefully another playoff year. That said, I'm keeping expectations in check. Since the second half debacle in Frisco, it has been a crawl, a walk , some running, and way too little successful passing.

I believe we have the coaches in place that can help us forget the recent disappointments.

Post CEO era ?

Is that the same CEO that had a winning record of 54% in the CAA and got drop kicked out of Newark for his antics ?

Big year for the Blue Hens and Rocco as he really needs to show he can do the job better then he has in years one & two. Don't want any more doghouses in
anyone's backyard. All that talent Dave Brock brought in was wasted by some weak coaching decisions. That can't continue for sure.

Since I'm sworn to secrecy we'll just have to wait a couple of weeks for the transfers to be announced.

Oh yeah, FACT........... Dangerous Danny stands at 64% in the CAA :lol:

Bill...you’ve got to be kidding me??? There are a hundred reasons why UD Football hasn’t been competitive in nearly a decade now, and I can assure you the format of the spring game has ZERO to do with it. Not enough talent, questionable coaching decisions, poor QB play, lack of support from the administration, and some bad breaks have everything to do with it. If you really think the way the spring game is played is a factor, I have a bridge in Brooklyn I’d like to sell you. Sorry Bill...but gotta call bullish!t on that one.

I get the frustration, as most fans are frustrated by the lack of consistent quality football, but let’s not make stuff up. Hopefully the renewed commitment from the administration will get us back on the path to the kind of Delaware Football we all want to see.
