Having gone to the last one of these - ok, the last quarter and four minutes of the last one of these - I admire anyone brave enough to make the trek. I've lived here for a long time now, so if anyone needs/wants any suggestions, just let me know. This is not one of those years when Pitt tickets are basically free, as is the case when ND or PSU is on the home slate, but you can still sit lower level between the 30's for $10. FYI, the visitors seats at Heinz are awful, as is Heinz itself, and likely the visitor.

I saw that Pitt is playing at 11AM on a date earlier in September when the Pirates have a home game as well later in the evening. Given that the Pirates are playing at night on the day of the UD/Pitt game is it likely that this will end up being an 11AM game as well?

last season in the same situation they did a 12:30pm start ... either way the bus folks are already there and why we decided to do a overnight trip

the damn ACC schedule rules would drive me crazy if I had to do that kickoff time guessing game every week

I agree Wayne. JDs contributions are numerous. The TD Club Luncheons start the 28th. Chrissy and Rocco are scheduled to speak. I urge any fan that can attend to come to these Lunches. They are well run, organized and informative. Foods good too!

JD I have a question for you.

Do you know if there are many Hens fans that live in Florida. I live in Fort Myers.

I have been a fan for almost 50 years. My dad taught at Delaware for 35 years. So
I kind grow up around Delaware football.

Me and my wife are going to be heading up to the Elon game. Can't wait to see
a live game. I really miss the game days at Delaware. It is so awesome there.

Thanks

William, A few BHTC members winter in Florida but can’t recall any full-timers. JD

There are 9 or 10 identified donors to the WAC/Stadium Reno project listed with FL addresses. And surely there a many other UD alums who live in FL (lots of those NY and NJ students who attended years ago).
