But then people would have to hunt for it.

My way they didn't.

I don't get the obsession with Hills. He's a kid who refused to go to class consistently and got booted out of school.

My point exactly! He let his teammates down. AND he could NEVER stay on the field when he was here. Essentially I believe that it is a UD Napoleon complex where they feel better about themselves and UD if they can say someone in the NFL went to UD. i.e. to say "see! we have really good football at UD"

No kidding you feel that way BH. We would have never guessed. And Hills didn't get kicked out for "not going to class." Surprised the insiders don't know that. And surprised the real reason hasn't been posted as this topic seems to keep coming up. And who cares how much anyone "goes to class"? It's about getting the work done and the actual grades, unless you have hall monitors for coaches. For the old timers here, in my Calc 241 class back in the day, I would see kids come in to take the tests I never saw all semester. Of course, they were the egg heads and always got A's anyway. And kids can come to college today with a with semester or more worth of hours earned without attending a college "class". And kids can graduate from college today and never step in a class room in the 21st century. "Going to class" is looking more old school by the year. But then ...... Now back to the thread, where we get hour by hour updates on the construction activity at the stadium, especially the stuff that is out of range of the two camera views.

Guy played for Delaware for three years and was great to watch. Maybe he would have stayed on the field more if we hadn’t hired Dave Brock? Saw Josh Baker at a few Spring Game’s after he left and then caught on with the Jets signing quite a few autographs.

Either way, he’s done more for Delaware football than either of us. Congrats to Wes Hills. He made a mistake, paid for that mistake, and rather than giving up or not taking responsibility he took his lumps and carried on. Guy was elected One of the captains. He was a better runner not as good of a receiver as Omar Cuff. You got to remember, he played in a time when we could barely compete a forward pass. He’s got a shot to be Johnson’s back up and Johnson has had some injury issues.

If you knew the things Brock did to help Wes adapt to and thrive at UD you wouldn't have made such an assine comment.

Troy reports to Rams camp Monday. He has a really good situation where there is the one ILB returning starter (Corey Littleton) than there is a group of 4 guys with very little to no NFL experience. He's going to have to battle but we've all seen Troy in action, so you know, I wouldn't bet against him!!!
