Awesome Spring Season!

Post by RalphD58 » Sat May 08, 2021 3:08 pm

Hey, great spring season! The Hens looked liked teams of the past and made the last couple of months a lot of fun. Most importantly, I think this team got a taste of that "winning attitude" which hopefully translates into more W's this fall. Obviously a lot of their flaws were apparent today, but hopefully they address and do their best to correct them for the upcoming fall season.

Agree Ralph. Good stuff. I'm proud of this team and the Staff. Can't wait for the Fall season.

It’s been a great spring. As disappointing as today is, its a building block to the next NC. Only 3 months to August camp and 4 to the fall season.

Go Hens

Agreed.

If you would have told me that the Hens would beat Nova AND win 2 playoff games back when this crazy Spring Football season started, well, I would have not believed you.

Great job Coaches and Players.

Absolutely not. I'm on the "Fire Rocco... Hire Rojas" bus! But that's another thread. This team needs another MLB head coach... 😂

Looking forward to the feel of fall, tailgating, Mario’s, a loud enthusiastic crowd and noise, the band and cheer teams.

Go hens beat Nova.

It was a fantastic ride. It's been a long time since I have been this excited about being a blue hen football. Looking forward to the fall season. Lots of great things to look forward to.

It was great to finally be relevant again at the FCS level...the kids (and coaches) should be very proud of what they accomplished this spring. Now let's get back at it in the fall. Hopefully this is just the start of better days ahead...Go Hens!!!

Lots to be proud of. Winning is better than losing, and they did a lot of it this spring. With any luck we’ll have a full stadium this Fall to support our Hens at. Really hoping this Spring rejuvenated the fan base a bit. Winning tends to do that. Students will watch a winning team. Let them tailgate a bit and even they might be back at the stadium.

Agreed. It was fun to be relevant again for the first time in a decade. Today showed there is a lot of work to do to win it all but it was fun watching a team play with attitude again this spring. Looking forward to the fall!

Great season and alot to be proud of. Very promising core of players for the upcoming Fall season!. Our achilles heel still is the OL especially RT. We have got to be able to run the ball. I had high hopes after the first couple games, but the OL has returned to past form for the rest of the season. Just doesn't seem to have that killer mentality. Hopefully the youngsters that played got some valuable experience that can carry mover this fall!

that was an incredible spring season

I enjoyed every second of ... well almost, but what happened today was no big surprise

We are sitting just outside of the top half dozen or so best teams in the country, got a find a way to bust into that group and it's called talent
