No CAA Tourney Discussion?

No CAA Tourney discussion? I am shocked! I guess the 5 weeks without any games killed interest which has shifted to what darthdave terms small time college Football in which he professes minimal interest.

Info Hound, Delete you! My post was made before the game started. When was the last time that there were no postings about UD Men's Basketball before any game much less a CAA Tourney game? Probably never.

Bill....are you ok? 🙄🙄

.not sure why my name was needed for this post. The reality is that UD football is mid major just like UD hoops. I’m more of a basketball fan so of course I’m going to follow and support the hoops team.

IMO I like that they have the opportunity to play in the dance against the best versus UD FB playing in FCS playoffs. again, just my opinion. Doesn’t mean those who prefer FCS are wrong. I watched the Maine game yesterday but probably will never be fully vested until they go FBS (which will probably be never).

I’m sure not playing for 5 weeks had nothing to do with it Bill.

darthdave, I used your name in this post because I found it very unusual that you hadn't posted about UD Men's Basketball in advance of today's CAA Tourney game. I was trying to humorously suggest that maybe you were so taken with yesterday's FB win that perhaps you now favor UD FB over UD Basketball. I fully respect that you are more passionate for Basketball over FB even though I prefer FB.

UDforever, Maybe you are correct. Do you have any explanation as to why there were no pre-game postings about the UD Men's Basketball CAA Tourney game? Unusual isn't it

I've deleted my rude comment.

Having not seen the team play for 5 weeks probably led to a lack of discussion. As posted elsewhere, this season was just a mess from the beginning.

That said, I look forward to attending games in the fall, and any time the A.D wants to put ticket renewals on sale, I'm in .

But yes, let's end it here.
