Dude won a NC as a player for UD and as a coach for UD and unlike other coaches at this level who use FCS schools as a landing stop before moving on, he would have been here for life. UD terminated the relationship (right after his brother or father...maybe both, had passed away) so why would anyone on here not root for the guy?

We shouldn't forget what happened if for no other reason than preventing similar mistakes in the past. Said when it happened, said it when they hired and then fired Brock, that was the single worst mistake in modern UD football history and it set us back a decade. There is no refuting that any longer. We now seem to be cooking with some gas and I can't wait for fall.
Yup, agreed, not a debate anymore that it was the wrong decision by UD and it did cost us a decade of competitive football that we're only now recovering from. Anyone arguing the opposite has run out of arguments and isn't being realistic. Hopefully we're back, hopefully this weird spring is real and we see the fruits of it this fall. Would be nice to play important football games again like we use to.
Cue holding Henzone's beer.....

Nah, he just nips around the edges anymore on this topic. Even he's begrudgingly come to realize what a horrible decision that was a decade ago and hopefully he even regrets his small involvement in it. Given the reality of what we can see and what we now know it's impossible not to acknowledge that fact.

Hope you guys voted for alum Joe B for prez.
That's some kind of untimely and misplaced statement.
Once a Hen, always a Hen, right?

Nah...if you listened to the NDSU coach, he said several times, "Once a Bison, Always a Bison."

THAT's how you develop a program.

And recognizing the folks who helped make your program a success is also a class act.

Instead, we have people on here (and elsewhere) that live to tear down KC and don't want him mentioned. Definitely NOT a class act...and definitely NOT how you grow and sustain a successful program.

In fact, one other poster said Rawak and Assanis should put out a press release supporting our former and future Hall of Fame coach. I agree. Such a statement would heal wounds and show true leadership and class.

This board is for supporting Blue Hen football. We celebrate Pops, Gannon, Tubby, and a whole host of others. To not support KC Keeler on a Blue Hen football site would be a terrible, spiteful gesture.

But, to each his own.

I will be watching and pulling for fellow Blue Hen Alum, KC Keeler, to win the National Championship. He will always be a Hen! He is responsible for some of my all-time favorite football moments!

I can follow but I do not financially support in any way. pretty simple. And I still can not understand anyone rationalizing a 20 year old man who is 6 foot plus and weighs 220 lbs assaulting a 77 year old man. It is disgusting.

Well on behalf of UD, thanks for not supporting financially (nor in the stands?) UD during a time of hardship (financial & otherwise) for UD due to covid. Can't we avoid wasting time re-visit the argument about a UD player?

From Dr. OldKat (from the Sammy board...where they are talking about Delaware, and have a thread named: To all of our Delaware Fans) http://www.katfans.com/katsforum/showth ... aware-fans :

"At the time; at least of those that came to this site, it seemed that it was fairly evenly divided between those that loved him & were VERY unhappy that he was let go vs those that blamed him for nearly everything from the state of their recruiting, their won/lose record to the British burning the White House in the War of 1812."

:lol:

Dr. OldKat is a wise man...however, our GoHens poll says it is not half, but 76% of our fans that were rooting for Sam Houston and KC Keeler. :D
Nice run, Hens! :D
