Re: The third down call

WTF--- We all contributed to this campaign and believed that the stadium and WAC( paid for by Mr Whitney I assume) would be the shining light to the new 21 century UD athletic football program. I haven't read the contract Colorado, but it seemed obvious that at least the old archaic wood press box w...

Re: 2019 Field Hockey

Rolf is simply the best coach on the UD athletic staff and a great guy. He certainly deserves an extended contract and a sizeable raise.

Congrats to the Lady Hens :D . They are a true bright spot in our dismal fall :( athletic teams.

TRASH THE TAR HEELS :wink:

Re: Sunshine Slam - UTSA

Anderson looks great as does Darling who won't be a surprise to our opponents who may double team him coming up. Anderson needs to be more careful with ball control esp at the end. Goss just fills in till Painter is eligible. Mutts is raw and needs D coaching. We will need him on the court this seas...

Re: The third down call

You don’t lose a game on one play! Amen and if you want a QB sneak you would put in 6-4 235 lb Kehoe not the 3rd stringer who hasn't taken a direct snap under center all year. I figured you couldn't resist :( :wink: I like a 215lb-6'2" qb who has much more speed and quickness than Pat(who I respect...

Re: The third down call

With 2 downs left to get a first down and driving down the field nicely, it seems obvious that you go to a BIG BACK like Spruill who is generally able to gain a yard or two most every time he touches the ball even with our challenged Oline. I've wondered whether it's a question of public relations d...

Re: Hoops Opener

Ebby would be my choice should they choose to redshirt anyone. He's very athletic but extremely raw. He could benefit from a year of learning the game at this level. You can tell He needs to be coached up. Pat- I watched someof the 1st half and agree with your comment. My son called during that hal...

Re: If Rocco Isn't the Answer, Who's Next Man Up?

Back to the topic of this thread- DR All most of us with the exception of one is rehashing our disappointment and anger with the incompetence and stubbornness of a bad choice to run our football program(" You can't always get what you want" and we certainly didn't get what we need)!!!!!!!!. Most wak...

Re: If Rocco Isn't the Answer, Who's Next Man Up?

Joe- I don't disagree with you -just the obvious that the small qbs have a greater possibility of injury-that's a given. Willie Taggart just fired from FSU. The parallels are interesting especially the reasoning by the athletic director for the immediate removal to try to bolster the school's footba...

Re: If Rocco Isn't the Answer, Who's Next Man Up?

Joe +1 We can't put all our hope in Henderson to be a savior. You know I love the kid as much as you and I said so immediately when I saw him hit the field, but the real question is whether he will be able to take the punishment over time unless he gains significant weight/strength and gets a reason...

Re: Polls after Towson

The words, Delaware and playoffs should not be used in the same sentence. so we have now reached the unfortunate reality that the two are mutually exclusive. :( I've been considering referring back to some past thoughts on UD football under DR that I had posted a couple of years ago after the disas...

Re: App St vs GA Southern..

guys- I watched the first half last night, and the first thing that popped in my mind after a few plays was "heck- we COULD have been there with a reasonably strong team had we made the move that was obvious at the time!! They looked tough and nasty! Both coaches were totally involved with the decis...

Re: 2019 season as of 3:40 pm

With Cubit in the stable, if we lose next week by a considerable margin, I wonder if Chrissi would give Cubit 2 games as interim to see if he can spark the team. If he does, then maybe give him a couple years while we shop for a long term replacement. What a full circle story that would be. I agree...
