Re: When will College Football resume? Links and references.

Gannonfan- You should run for the Mayor of Harleysville as you continually never deal with the original question but instead spin into a semi related rant . I'll repeat what I posted earlier. We've had a cumulative losing record in the CAA for the last 15 years. It has nothing to do with anything e...

Re: When will College Football resume? Links and references.

Count me in as a Keeler fan and one who is still sorry he was forced out....... Not interested in debating it, Just my opinion. Always respect your opinion John. Interesting how a factual statement turns some other people purple and into a total defensive mode. Either the Blue Hens had a losing rec...

Re: UD Budget

It's a great question. Do half the undergrads live on campus normally? Room and board was $13,208 in 2019. Other expenses and 'books and supplies' were another $2800, so room, board and other expenses were a shade over $16k to payers last year. Let's say that half the students live on campus and ca...

Re: 2020 MLB and Phillies thread

Just had to win one more game in the stretch of 8 where they lost 7 of 8, and couldn't do it. Team is pretty gutless at the moment. As much as the bullpen was a monumental disaster, to watch the team fail to score a single run in the final game of the season where a win would've gotten them in is al...

Re: UD Budget

So where is the bulk of the $250M deficit coming from? Athletics, by reports over the years, have always been around net zero in terms of revenue, so not playing those sports shouldn't have caused a major issue in terms of missing revenues. So does that mean most or all of this is from the fact that...

Judging from the plastic sheeting over the press box windows the field side color is about to change.

Glad the complain crowd had their moment though.
God forbid people take interest in something UD is doing. The horror. 8)

Always something to complain about I guess... :wink:
That's dodging the question - do you like the color of the pressbox as it faces the field? Maybe if they do some of it in blue like the artist rendering it might look better, but it does stand out like a sore thumb now.

Re: College Football TV Schedule and Game Discussion

Hard to argue against Gannon and Booker being the 2 greatest Offensive/Defensive Blue Hens of all-time. Still hard to believe that team got the snot kicked out of it by Fred Barnett and Arkansas St in the 2nd round of the playoffs that year. I believe it was 14 to 14 early before they completely be...

Re: Bluehens 'ALL NASTY' Team (1968 to Present)

I thought Dan Mulhern fit that mold.

I'd also throw Brian Smith on that list as well - he's often overlooked but he was a tackling machine on some really good defensive teams (that 1997 team was one of those - outside of 2003 they were one of the best defenses I've seen at UD).

Re: UD Fall Practice and Spring Season 2021

I don't know how you can decide to sit out and wait for the draft and keep your scholarship. IMO, and it is just my opinion, no UD player will sit out for this reason. I didn't mean to imply they'd keep their scholarship, I meant to imply that they would graduate early or just leave - similar to ho...

Re: UD Fall Practice and Spring Season 2021

Do we have any idea who from Delaware won't be playing in the spring? I imagine the NFL isn't going to change their draft date so anyone with a legit shot to be drafted likely wouldn't play in the spring. I don't know how you can decide to sit out and wait for the draft and keep your scholarship. I...
