Re: The Future of the CAA

I'd sign us up for JD's scenario in a heartbeat. Delaware/Temple games every year - shame joec wouldn't be around to experience those again.

Re: UD Budget

Does anyone happen to know when returning students had to make the decision to attend (virtually) or take the year off? And by opting out, would you have to re-apply to the University to come back next semester or next Fall? It sounds like the writer's son at 'Nova had that option to opt out for th...

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.
