Heck no, I've only even seen Bill twice ever - the first time was the infamous "spicy mustard incident", and the second was at a GOHens meeting with Brock where he proposed a Gold out.

I've asked him multiple times to change his name to avoid the embarrassment of being associated with him in any way.... :roll:

I will be there to support MI and my Hens in their home opener. Brilliant scheduling this year too.

In the past you pissed and moaned when UD would not pay for a home game and our OOC schedule had only 3-4 homes games to open the season. And now that we are paying for a home game you are AGAIN pissing and moaning.

I get it, it's not the issues you feel strongly about, it's your need to piss and moan that's important. Sorry I can be slow some times but I get it now.



As I stated on the pissing and moaning thread about the 12/28 2PM tip off.....I don't know how he can bring himself to get put of bed in the morning.

Can the glass always be half empty?????? :( :( :( :(

I wasn't pushing for Home (or Away) games against lower Div opponents. :roll:

In keeping with your character as displayed on these boards, I am not surprised that you are also a slob.

You were pissing and moaning that we did not pay for home games ... fact

Across every every level this is what buying home games looks like ... fact

It's your option to stay home Bill ... those of us there will be happy to see our team play, have the opportunity to see our team grow and give our HC the chance to try some different things he might not be able to tonight vs Bradley.

And happy we understand how scheduling, RPI and post season selection works.

All three are obviously, talented additions to the squad.

I expect to have fun this winter.
The end of failure in 2017-18? Well, not in all things!

I guess I'd be okay with one non-Division I home game a year, but would prefer to play Division II if we have to drop down a level. Not thrilled with playing two D3 games this year. And one isn’t even at home…

This is just a guess, but you wouldn't think too many teams have ever played North Carolina Wesleyan on the road and Notre Dame at home in a three week stretch.

Expect to see a rotation of Div II Goldey-Beacom & Wilmington and Div III Wesley; the Delaware schools and maybe a West Chester or similar thrown in ... the focus will be less division and more keeping that game against a local school ... and expect one of these games every year.

The second Div III game came after we had signed up to play in the Greensboro tournament. UNCG had a Div I team drop out on them, late, and had to go scrambling for a team to replace them.

An ok showing by the Hens as they basically went through the motions beating DIII Wesley by 15 but still let up 78 points. The young talent Anderson and Walker look good and add athleticism to the team which was really lacking. It is still lacking some as the very, very small Wesley team actually was much quicker than the Hens and were constatnly beating the Hens off the dribble. I was a little surprised to see that. They even had a guard from local HS Delaware Miliatary Academy that lit it up 30 and was hard to guard. The Hens will need to rely on team defense which I am sure they will going forward. And they need to pick up their 3pt shooting. It was another dreadful night of 1-12 coming off Bradley. Anyway, the team got another chance to play together in a real game which is what the early games are all about. The addition of Allen should help as well. Better days are coming back to the BoB for sure.

That kid who poured in 30 points for Wesley, Brian Cameron, was impressive. He is a local kid and a talent who can definitely play at the D1 level. A great shooter and passer, quick and crafty. Would love to see him transfer to UD.

He was CAC ROY last year for Wesley avg 14 game and shooting 47% from 3. Looks like he was 3rd team all state in Delaware, went to Deltech for 1 year but did not play hoops and now at Wesley. Could definitely use his shooting and would be a nice hometown story with him from Newark.

Regarding the game....like Hens79 said, getting beat off the dribble which started at Bradley and continued with Wesley is troubling. I think with 2 freshman in the at times, that will get better as they acclimate to D1 ball. Getting Allen back will help with the shooting. 24 assist last night is something I like to see. Anderson looks to be a keeper. Walker has Alex Coles like hops.

UNCG will be a tough test. Hung with UVA 60-48 then 2 blowout wins against lesser division teams.
