Re: Two Hens on ESPN Top 150 Coaches list

mp, thank you for the reply .... but your response IS typical of the reason UD doesn’t win enough, in my opinion. “Winning is important but .....” THAT is the culture of UD. There isn’t a singular focus on winning, to do what it takes to win. For sure GPA and community engagement are important but ...

Re: Two Hens on ESPN Top 150 Coaches list

I could not agree more with 79 about including Tubby and KC on a list of accomplishment. It is too bad that the academic achievements of the student-athletes do not inspire you. All students are in part the future and such achievements are important to them. Also in these times of political, ideolo...

Re: Two Hens on ESPN Top 150 Coaches list

Nice post Band. And to further your thought, I got a Christmas card from UD, coming of course coming with the usual request for a donation. But that is kinda expected. But the message, or highlights included in the note were really uninspiring. They included the women’s cross country and field hock...

Re: Rocco -- an OUTSIDER'S perspective

... Do you guys get out much? Do you read anything on the internet that isn't on this message board? You must've missed the last 20 years of life in America.

Re: Why Is JMU in a different league?

My post was in response to a post that since the PER CAPITA income in DE and VA was very close, DE is not poor compared to VA and that therefore DE and UD should have comparable resources to VA & JMU for athletics. Do your little minds now comprehend? Of course BHB ignored the fact that UD has an e...

Tubby at 25 Keeler at 149 https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/page/CFB150coaches/the-150-greatest-coaches-college-football-150-year-history How can this be?

Re: Why Is JMU in a different league?

Wow, people still find it necessary to bash Keeler. Unbelievable. Did I miss the rule where you can list any coaches record except for the football coach from 2002-2012? That's bashing? If indeed Keeler has been anointed as a demigod on here for 1 championship in 26 years then we will be arguing un...

Re: Why Is JMU in a different league?

Unfortunately Keeler coached for 11 years not the 4 that some of you have immortalized him for. JMU kicked our azz in 06 & 08 scoring over 40 points each time. We had our good years but we had our really stinky years . Call it what you want but it's part of our documented history. While we were bob...

Re: Why Is JMU in a different league?

"They are not a rich school like UD." They are a state school in a rich state. UD’s endowment is close to $1.4 billion, that is billion with a B compared to JMU’s $100 million or so. That is a stark difference. And JMU is nowhere close to the flagship football playing school in VA. In fact, there a...

Re: Why Is JMU in a different league?

Blue Hens- Dukes Tubby 8-4 KC 4-4 Dave 2-2 Dan 0-2 What’s your point? It’s getting worse? Well I agree the gap is widening.... It's been widening since the day Tubby walked out the door. JMU's program has gotten better, ours has declined. Mickey won 3 CAA championships along with his NC while he wa...

Re: App State to Cotton Bowl...

I haven't I'm sure New Orleans is fun but I would rather play NDSU in Friscoe for an FCS NC, then LA Tech for nothing in New Orleans after a good season. Sure but that’s happened 6 times ever playing for a NC. That’s a lot of unhappy endings... Oh and by the way, do yourself a favor and get to New ...

Re: George Washington

The Smith Center gets loud because their fans are more engaged than your average Delaware crowd. Elana’s West Virginia & North Carolina games showed it ain’t the building, it’s the fan base that transforms a arena. Well ... when the team is as bad as they have been the last 5 years prior to this ye...

Re: FCS Playoffs

For those who still think the CAA is a very tough FCS conference, it's really just a shadow of what it once was. Albany just took a 47-21 butt whipping at Montana St, while SE Louisiana, the team that beat Nova last week, just got clocked 73-28 at Montana. JMU is good, very good, but the rest of th...

Re: George Washington

I was hoping for a win today to provide some legitimacy to the 9-0 start. Perhaps a strong showing against Villanova will do it. #GoHens Does Duke have any legitimacy after losing to SF Austin? Every game you win is legitimate. Enjoy the school record start, we might just lose the rest of the way. ...
