Emergence from hibernation …

The day after NFL Draft to CAA FB Media Day … is usually the hibernation period for TheFightinHens.com. It is the time I can fold up the blue & gold football gear, throw it into virtual storage, and forget-about-it for a few months (excluding tweeting stuff, of course). But that CAA FB Media Day is right around the corner (usually the last Wednesday of July?), which means it is time…

Run, Nick, Run

And he did. At the NFL Combine Nick Boyle‘s 40 time was 5.04 … in scouts’ eyes … improvement was needed. At the UD Pro Day … Nick’s 40 time was dramatically better … 4.86 (unofficial) So what does this new (faster) 40 time mean to Boyle’s draft possibilities? Well, let’s take a look at last year’s draft (TEs only): ROUND (OVERALL) PLAYER HEIGHT WEIGHT SCHOOL TEAM 40 TIME 1 (10)…

TheFightinHens.com: Q & A with Dave Brock

Delaware Fightin Blue Hen Head Coach Dave Brock took time to do a little Q & A for TheFightinHens.com [hr] 1. It is your third year as head football coach at UD, if in 2016 one of your assistants accepted a position as head coach for another school, what would be two bits of wisdom that you would pass on to him?

It’s the most … wonderful time …

… of the year. Wow. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen some Blue Hens playoff fun. Kinda sucks seeing these other CAA schools gettin ready to play ball in round two of the FCS playoffs, huh?. The NFL schedule is in the final turn before the playoffs … and quite a few former #BlueHens are in the race. I guess that relieves a wee bit of the pain of not seeing…

ONE. GAME. LEFT.

Yeah, I know the Blue Hens got their butts kicked last week in Durham, NH. And I know there is zero shot at the playoffs since we cannot reach that elusive 8-win mark. But this is Villanova week, this is Senior day. It’s time to look around the locker room and realize, for seniors, it’s likely the last time you’re suiting up for a football game, for everyone else– it’s…

TWO. GAMES. LEFT

I remember waaaay back when Maine and QB Mike Buck came to Newark undefeated and un-intercepted. Wow. What a great game that was. IT was like the centennial game or something like that. A big deal. Mike Buck got intercepted twice and those Black Bears took the BIG L back up north with them. Well … we kinda have a big game today. It’s not every day your FIGHTIN BLUE…
