Great trophy presentation with KC and his team. I was very fortunate to attend the 2003 championship game in Chatty and also the one we came up short in Frisco. From day 1 KC always said he was here (now there) to win National Championships. The guy certainly knows how to get to the big dance. He obviously hasn't always won but I'd rather get to the dance than be sitting at home watching.

I really hope Rocco can get our o-line fixed. NASTY just doesn't seem to be in their vocabulary. So many games I was so pissed off because the o-line was more concerned with who could go help the running back up in the backfield instead of 10 yards down field.

Please tell me some old Hen linemen have some sons headed our way.

Congrats KC! What a tough road to the championship though NDSU, JMU and #1 SDSU you navigated your team through. Wish you had more opportunities to win a chipper here. I am pretty sure we would have had another by now. But we did get our first playoff wins since you where fired by some clowns many years ago. Maybe the BHTC can invite you to their opening lunch this year? You can get a nice Texas steak while many in the crowd will be served crow. They can order it grilled, fried, or blackened and it will be very moist so some of the old guard don’t choke on it. Oh, and be sure to bring all the transcripts for all your transfers especially the Howard and Georgetown stars. We can compare your 20 to those of the 14 that are on the current UD roster on gohens. Again, congrats from one UD alum to another.
:lol:

Missed your posts, 79.

And the BHTC inviting KC Keeler to their first lunch...an instant CLASSIC! :lol: :lol:

Actually, a class organization WOULD invite Keeler back. You know if Tubby had won elsewhere, that some folks would invite him back. Heck, Keeler gave Rocco some kind words, Ambrose tweeted support for KC (wait...aren't they competitors :lol: ), and Chrissy tweeted her congrats. All class acts.

But, not our guys...they have to remain bitter.

It is painfully obvious that the only hard feelings are from a stubborn few self-important individuals who are making themselves look more and more foolish as the days go by.

In the meantime, we true Delaware football fans have a lot to celebrate. We have alums doing well while winning an FCS championship, and we have our own Hens finally having some playoff success. What a great Spring for fans of Delaware football, past and present! :D
Guys, I think it would be great to have KC come back and speak at a BHTC meeting. There would be great stories about his time at UD, his players, memorable games, and of course, Tubby stories. We would need a bigger room.

It's not my decision to make at this time, and KC's coaching activities would be an impediment, I expect. That said, I would bet that it happens at some point.

79, since we are all getting "up there", we'll be sure to have plenty of mashed potatoes for all. :D

Who says the BHTC hasn’t already tried to make that happen? Pre-2nd NC in fact. Certainly not anyone with any actual insight, I do know that.

I know it. The window of opportunity to make it happen is next to impossible sadly. The same goes with other Hens that still work in or around football. But we stay in touch directly or through their UD connections and we keep trying.

For sure HJ. And sure as heck a lot more than to hear Danny speak. And of course, nobody suggested the BTHC didn’t actually try to get KC ever. But who knew it was 14 years ago if that is what “Pre-2nd NC” means? Geeesh! At least we know jd is alive. Any Henzone sightings? :lol: Heard from Info about a possible modified menu at the lunches :lol: Just watching out for fellow Hens fans.

79, the TD lunches are well worth the time out, the food is great and JD always has meaningful guests and information.

I can only speak to and was only speaking about the Hens invited to speak at the BHTC luncheons since the beginning of the 2015 season. I have no clue about 14 years ago.

Hands down, lining up guest speakers is the most time consuming part of the BHTC Presidents job. It’s also the most rewarding. Getting to know these folks, even just a little bit, is an honor.

From a person (79) who knows squat about the BHTC and all that they do for the team. Love your smugness though, it fits you well. When the lunches start up again come on over. I’ll even pay for your lunch.

Smugness? Hmmm? You know jd was the one who brought up eating crow a little while ago don’t you? But that was ok with you? And if I am smug, what do you call your practice buddy, the suddenly silent Henzone? But hey, I never turn down a free lunch. We can trade UD football stores. HENJOHN probably has a few games on me but not too many. I’ve been to over 450 games over 56 years. Save me a seat.

79 you don't take a back seat to anyone when it comes to support of the program and devotion. Looking forward to that pregame Beer this Fall.

Dear Kurt Charles Keeler,

Some of us would like to invite you to a Fightin' Chickens Scoring Club meet and greet, where you could speak to many of our crowd, including some organizers, who believe, and have posted repeatedly on GoHens throughout the years, that you wrecked Delaware football. We mean for you to answer to our accusations of you ruining our football program with your up and down seasons. We have also have heard and posted that you didn't escort students to class, that you were a poor tipper, you showed rings (RINGS, for goodness sake!...who are you...Sauron?) to potential recruits, arranged for parking spaces, promised transfers they'd start, ignored self-righteous local high school coaches, took away the Wing-T, and were responsible for the fall from grace of Tubby's legendary football school. That will cover the first half hour...we'll wing it from there.

What say you?

Sincerely,

Who needs the Huddles anymore, anyway?

PS - please don't win many playoff games...and definitely not another championship.
Nice run, Hens! :D
