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

UD will re-open on September 1. Send everyone home at Thanksgiving. Finish the last two weeks of the semester on-line, ending in mid-December. What if UD FB is on a playoff run? How about UD Basketball & other Wnter Sports? It seems like many of the FBS colleges are planning to open in mid-Aug, end...

Re: HeroSports Top 25

Any kind of FBS Eastern football conference/alliance is going to have to involve a lot of creativity and flexibility. Interesting conversation on the JMU board that many still include UD to join JMU in an FBS league which is more in Va. and NC. (ODU, Charlotte, ECU) Henny, Would that be a FB only l...

Re: UD to cut Sports?

Brown cut 11 sports (while adding two) despite it being, well, Brown, and having at $4B endowment. Cutting 6 Men's Sports & 5 Women's Sports. Adding Women's Sailing (increasing the disparity between Men's & Women's Sports by 2 in favor of Women's Sports) and Co-ed Sailing. I guess that "Co-ed" spor...

We may never know why he left but when a player leaves it not always a bad thing. I wish him all the best.
72 Hen, As you posted, but it always bothers me more when (as in this instance) it is a scholly player and at a postion where there is need and/or depth is thin at best.

Re: Mutts

BlueHenBill is the biggest Blue Hen fan on the planet. If you're ever unfortunate enough to sit near him during a game, you'll figure that out yourself. It isn't UD basketball he is feed up with it's the system created that I described earlier. Team loyality and chemistry is fading away. Latest CAA...

Re: Revised roster is now available

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I did see one player gone from the new roster that was on the 2020 Spring roster. Is it confirmed OL Owen Zechman left the program? Did he leave and remain at UD or has he entered the portal? He's gone. Just what UD needed, a RFr scholly OL leaving the program. :(

Re: UD to cut Sports?

Many Division III still buses men & women basketball teams together. Women play at 4:30pm and the men at 7:00pm. Crazy to think at the Division I level until you consider how crazy things could be this winter. More likely to happen busing both soccer teams. The 2 lacrosse teams would still need 2 b...

Re: Mutts

If Mutts & Darling both leave, I will probably drop my season tickets (which I have held since before the Bob opened) for Men's Basketball. It will just confirm that at UD's currrent level it is virtually Iimpossible to build a team that can win the CAA and maybe an NCAA game. UD can no longer sign...

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

Too VA/JMU centric. For example, why is Elon in Matthews' CAA FOOTBALL Conf. and Stony Brook, Albany, URI, and/or UNH aren't? From a VA/JMU perspective, Elon is closer than those Northern schools. From a UD, Nova, & amybe Towson perspective, every one of those northern schools (except mauybe UNH whi...

Re: Mutts

Should UD eliminate paying expenses for summmer school for Men's Basketball players? On the one hand, that would pretty much keep players from graduating in less than four years and prevent then from being able to transfer as a grad student and play right away. On the other hand, it would probably h...

Re: MAC changes

ECU also cut men and women’s tennis. 68 students and 9 coaches (including swimming). Estimated savings will be $4.9 m to help reduce a $10.2 m deficit within athletics ($7.5 m prior to pandemic). They will maintain 16 sports (9 women, 7 men), still above the NCAAA requirement. I also believe they i...

Re: Spring Practice #1 2020

Is Finian Brose a DT (per UD's website roster) or an OL (per the roster at this site)? I though that with Brose, Coomer, Nance & Hall, UD was pretty set at DT for playing a 4-3. DL, however, appears thin at NT and DE. Maybe the move back to 3-4 (ugh!) is driven by lack of depth at DE but then NT and...
