Re: Fans for Mar 13 Stony Brook Game?

The Campus Covid status isn't encouraging It isn’t HJ. Over 200 more cases this week so far added to 324 last week. The 19711 zip code is leading the state by a lot in infections. Way more than at any time. Even got a quote in the NJ from the state Health Director that their attention is “mostly fi...

Re: Ryan Daly

I liked him and enjoyed watching him play. Wish he stayed here. He sure wouldn’t have been the third option behind Anderson and Allen like some thought after what we saw the last two years. Has over 1800 points, almost 700 rebounds and close to 300 assists in 100 games. Would have missed 2 CAA tourn...

Re: Fintan Brose - OL

Not derogatory, just factual but I am not going to go back over years and identify all of the highly touted recruits who left before they even played much if at all. Now how about answering my question and you can throw Will Bowden into your answer as well. Bill...shame on you. The insiders used to...

Re: Ready for anything

Mr BlueHen Bill, You're right about Rocco's recruiting.......... :roll: https://bluehens.com/news/2020/2/12/football-blue-hens-earn-best-recruiting-class-rank-in-program-history As for what Danny was in the past, CAA record wise at Richmond he fared much better for some reason then in Newark. But, ...

Re: Spring Football Fans/Tickets

Do a quick google search of “COVID 19 gyms”. There are pages of references including the CDC and WebMD. But the first two pages at least didn’t contain any from Fox, NewsMax or OANN so I guess some would say there is no proof. Anyway, back to the thread. UD will be lucky to even play the game on Mar...

Re: Spring Football Fans/Tickets

As promised, a “Chicken Little” discussion. With the recent reference, I thought a recent historical look back was in order as the accusation has come up a few times over the years. Coach Brock and his three prong rebuild. Not sure anyone wants to debate that. Joe Walker at QB. While it was mostly u...

Re: Ready for anything

BHB- The philosophy that you mention is that of using 3 down lineman. Many successful teams around the country use a 3 man front but they sure utilize it a lot better then the Blue Hens did for damn sure. Our new DC has some new thoughts , better depth and more experienced players. We have a proble...

Re: Spring Football Fans/Tickets

Thanks Chicken Little. I don't suggest they're lying. I just found the use of the word spike to be a bit of sensationalism. Mistaken in their ways perhaps? The infection rate trend is downward as things are wisely beginning to open up around the country. You double the amount of folks in an area an...

Re: Spring Football Fans/Tickets

Well, the NJ called it a spike and so did Channel 6 News and UD has added restrictions for some reason. Maybe they aren’t good at math either? But yeah, let’s talk about semantics. And the quarantine space on campus is half full as of yesterday. So something is going on. Maybe give the students HCX?

Re: Spring Football Fans/Tickets

I think this big spike caught everyone off guard. I was shocked when I checked the UD COVID Dashboard last night. Students came back from break moving in to residence halls between Feb. 10 and 14. I’m sure many returned to their off campus housing as well. Two weeks later (now) we have a spike. I w...

Re: Unofficial CAA preseason poll

Andy Talley. Talley gave us some great games throughout the years then handed the program over to long time assistant Mark Ferrante . The culture continues to this day. Jay Wright's success has certainly been icing on the cake . Villanova football “culture”??? And lionizing Andy Talley??? Needed a ...

Re: State of UD Football

My life is just great J. Well, as good as can be during a pandemic and someone not quite old enough to get a vaccine yet. My first grandson was born last week and I am on cloud 9. But thanks for the advice and concern. And like HZ, not debating either. But it is just in my nature to push back on big...
