  5. MLB The show just came out so thats all I'm gonna do with (probably) no school this month. Also FCFB over on reddit starts up on the 25th so I'll be over there playing with SUU.
  6. I'm considering playing an OT at OG this year in cfb. I'm kind of interested to see if anyone had good success with this.
  7. I've been kinda dead the last few months so I'm not surprised I'm so low. If you take out the last few months after my season ended I might be up there.
  8. Delaware Depth Chart Preview It's finally the offseason, and you know what that means: a new batch of freshmen and a few new starters. This year, however, there is a lot of turnover in many important areas. Lets take an in-depth look into who we think the starters will be for the Blue Hens next year, as well as those who will be redshirting. This will be a three part series. This first part will contain the offensive depth charts. The second will be the defensive players. The third will be a mini part with special teamers. Part One OFFENSE (Redshirt Freshman QB William Campbell) BOLD INDICATES STARTER RED INDICATES REDSHIRT SEASON Quarterback 1.QB William Campbell 6-3 231 (Fr) Lake Stevens (Lake Stevens WA) 3.0 of 3.5 [Hybrid] 2.QB Teddy Osborn 6-1 206 (Sr) Northwestern (Baltimore MD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Hybrid] 3.QB James Rypien 6-4 187 (So) Forestville (Forestville MD) 2.5 of 2.5 [Scrambling] 4.QB Jason Fox 6-4 179 Sr Needham (Needham MA) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pocket] QB Carter Schultz 6-0 230 Fr Port St. Lucie (Port St. Lucie FL) 1.0 of 4.0 [Scrambling] There is a bit of an early spring battle developing here between newcomer Carter Schultz and William Campbell. Campbell was originally recruited in coach Osu's first season, and was expected to become the starter after a season of redshirting. The coaching staff had been noticing some issues with Campbell's work ethic throughout his redshirt season. That fact alone led to coach Osu opening up the QB battle to all of the quarterbacks. Campbell seems to have gotten his act together, however, and has looked significantly better than the previous fall. He may have an early lead, but Campbell better watch his back. Carter Schultz is much more athletic than Campbell and their arms are comparable. The only sizable difference setting Campbell apart currently is his knowledge of the playbook and scheme. Schultz has a whole spring to learn the playbook, so it may end up being a much closer QB battle than expected. Despite this, we still expect Campbell's experience in the offense to outweigh athleticism this year. Schultz will most likely take a redshirt season. Runningbacks 1.RB Richard Schaffer 5-10 201 (Sr) Woodbridge (Bridgeville DE) 3.5 of 3.5 [Speed] 2.RB Elias Bailey 5-11 194 (Fr) Slippery Rock Area (PA) 2.0 of 3.5 [Speed] 3.RB Bruce Johnson 5-9 190 (Jr) Reginald Lewis (Baltimore MD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Speed] 4.RB Rich Dobbins 5-7 172 Fr Dwyer (Palm Beach Gardens FL) 2.0 of 3.5 [Speed] 5.RB Mateo Underwood 5-8 205 (Fr) Concrete (Concrete WA) 2.0 of 3.0 [Speed] RB Mark Williams 5-9 210 Fr Wissahickon (Ambler PA) 1.0 of 4.0 [Power] Schaffer was the established RB1 from last year until Barack Holmes came in and took over. He looks to return to his 2022 season form, in which he carried the load pretty well. We have a hunch, however, that there is still going to be a battle for snaps at the RB2 position. Coach Osu has previously stated that after Barack left he would look to incorporate more of a "runningback by committee" style of backfield. The roles of third down runningback and short yardage runningback are still certainly up for grabs. Mark Williams is a very interesting raw prospect that would fit well into the short yardage set, however, coach Osu seems to want to preserve that extra year of eligibility for the future. Assuming Williams redshirts, we see Schaffer getting most of the goal line and short yardage touches. This leaves the final RB spot as the third down back. Bailey and Johnson's battle has been fairly one sided in our opinions. To be a third down back you really have to be a pass catcher, and Elias Bailey played a good bit of wide receiver in high school. Bailey is a much better pass catcher than Johnson, and in the end we assume he and Schaffer will be getting the vast majority of carries this year. Fullback 1.FB Delonta Hawkins 5-8 229 Fr Barron Collier (Naples FL) 1.0 of 4.5 [Pass Blocking] 2.FB Everett Harrison 5-11 205 Sr Walter Johnson (Bethesda MD) 2.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] 3.FB Eric Lee 6-1 209 Jr La Salle Academy (Providence RI) 1.5 of 1.5 [Run Blocking] 4.FB Jamel Lusk 6-2 214 (Jr) South Burlington (VT) 1.5 of 1.5 [Pass Blocking] Fullback isn't a position Delaware utilizes very often in their current offense. But with an up and coming offensive line, and a big bruising back like Williams in the wings, UD may be primed for a bit of smash mouth football in the future. With that prospect in mind, we believe that coach Osu will immediately start extremely talented true freshman Delonta Hawkins. Hawkins is an extremely good blocker especially in the pass game. Some early game time could help him work on his run blocking, along with his skills on the ball. Senior Everett Harrison is still a very valuable player and should be utilized on special teams. (Sophomore WR Antonio Brown) Wide Receivers 1.WR Antonio Brown 5-10 172 (So) Glen Mills (Concordville PA) 4.0 of 4.0 [Speed] 2.WR Glenn Lawrence 6-4 196 (Sr) Gilman School (Baltimore MD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Target] 3.WR Zachary Andersen 6-2 179 Sr Northeast (Pasadena MD) 3.0 of 3.0 [Speed] 4.WR Jon Kearney 6-4 177 (Fr) Richland (Richland WA) 2.5 of 3.0 [Speed] 5.WR Tyrod Terry 6-0 225 (Fr) Ocean City (Ocean City NJ) 2.0 of 3.5 [Target] 6.WR Christian Alexander 5-11 191 (Sr) Windsor (Windsor VT) 2.0 of 2.0 [Speed] 7.WR Neil Davis 6-2 165 Jr Caesar Rodney (Camden DE) 2.0 of 2.0 [Target] WR Mike Gentile 6-4 223 Fr Northwestern (Hyattsville MD) 1.0 of 3.5 [Target] In most sets last year Delaware had a runningback and at least one tight end on the field at all times. We, therefore, have only three receivers listed as starters. 4 and 5 should also get a good bit of playing time in 5 wide sets and when tight ends come off the field. Of course, all three starters return from last year. With Barack Holmes leaving there should be more of an emphasis on these experienced receivers and this passing game. We also expect Brown to return to his role as the slot receiver. Newcomers Tyrod Terry and Jon Kearney should be able to get a good amount of snaps in their first seasons playing for the team. Mike Gentile is the only true freshman in the group and he is definitely a little too raw to get any playing time this year, a redshirt season is what he needs. Tight Ends 1.TE Johnny Craig 6-1 217 (So) Sussex Tech (Georgetown DE) 2.5 of 2.5 [Blocking] 2.TE Nicolas McCall 6-6 204 Fr Vernon (Vernon FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Receiving] 3.TE Paul Hendrickson 6-1 224 (Sr) Kenwood (Baltimore MD) 2.5 of 2.5 [Blocking] 4.TE Leonard Lee 6-1 216 Sr Salesianum (Wilmington DE) 2.0 of 2.0 [Blocking] This is a position battle we have no clue about. McCall is far and away the best receiver of all the tight ends. We expect him to play a lot of snaps as a pure receiving tight end. Craig and Hendrickson don't have much separating them in terms of physicality and skillset. So far this spring they haven't done anything to differentiate from each other as well. Based on last year's depth chart I would have Craig just above Hendrickson as the blocking tight end. I wouldn't be surprised if a good spring game performance or some great spring practices may mover Hendrickson above Craig. (Junior Tackle Travis Green) Tackles 1.OT Travis Green 6-7 302 (Jr) Smyrna (Smyrna DE) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] 2.OT Cyrus Brennan 6-3 278 (Fr) Montville Township (Montville NJ) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] 3.OT File Kalapu 6-1 324 Fr Ocean City (Ocean City NJ) 2.5 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] 4.OT Julian Maxwell 6-5 319 Fr Chamberlain (Tampa FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OT Blake Lind 6-2 327 Fr Faith Christian (Grapevine TX) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] Tackle is the position with some of the least experience on the whole team, although there is a good bit of young talent. Green is a returning starter who flips over to the left, and should be protecting Campbell's blind side. The right tackle is a position that is a bit contested. Kalapu is the only one out of the 3 true freshmen that could be ready to play on day 1. Once again experience is coming into play with our depth chart prediction. Kalapu will need time to adjust to the speed of the college game, while Brennan has had a whole year of experience working against the first team defensive ends. He has already separated himself a good deal from Kalapu, and should be the starter on the other side. For depth purposes there should only be one tackle who redshirts this year. We selected Lind because he seems to have taken the longest to adjust to being at UD. His tape looks really good, but he hasn't necessarily looked like that player so far, and for that reason we feel he should take a redshirt season. Guards OT Clarence Drummond 6-3 272 (So) Unatego (Otego NY) 3.0 of 3.0 [Pass Blocking] OG Richard Matthews 6-3 266 Jr Havre de Grace (Havre de Grace MD) 2.5 of 2.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Greg Gaffney 6-5 283 Fr American (Hialeah FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] OG Robert Bowers 6-6 272 Sr Milford (Milford DE) 1.5 of 1.5 [Run Blocking] OG Patrick Almeida 6-6 333 Fr Lake Gibson (Lakeland FL) 1.0 of 3.5 [Pass Blocking] Yes, your eyes are not deceiving you, we have a former tackle listed as a guard. Drummond has been taking all of his reps, so far this year, at guard. The blue hens are very inexperienced at all offensive line positions this year, and guard is really the most inexperienced. Along with this inexperience there isn't a lot of talent at the guard position. All of this adds up to putting Drummond at guard. This should be the best way for them to compete this year. Matthews is the next best guard in the team, and really the only other viable starter unless UD were to play a very young talent. Both Gaffney and Almeida are very talented, but also very raw. The team is very young as it is, so it will help to have starting linemen that have a lot of experience in college. Almeida and Gaffney will be expected to battle for starting roles come next year. Center 1.C Lawrence Herrera 6-6 272 Jr Smyrna (Smyrna DE) 2.5 of 3.0 [Run Blocking] 2.C Gregory Palmer 6-1 264 Sr River Hill (Clarksville MD) 2.0 of 2.0 [Pass Blocking] 3.C Stephen Grant 6-3 267 Jr Chopticon (Morganza MD) 1.0 of 1.0 [Pass Blocking] Our final position will need a bit of recruiting focus over the next couple of years. The position currently has only juniors and seniors on the roster, and will need some revamping soon. Despite this, there is no real position battle here. All three of these players have been on the roster since coach Osu began at Delaware, and since his freshman year, Lawrence Herrera has started. There is nothing we have seen so far in practice that would show he isn't going to return to reprise in his starting role from last year. Stay tuned for part 2 coming soon!
  9. Definitely see myself as a PJ Fleck kinda guy. Pretty good coach, but my best trait is probably as a motivator. I'm pretty good at getting recruits and transfers to buy in.
  10. I'm really excited to see WR Antonio Brown 5-10 172 (Fr) Glen Mills (Concordville PA) 2.5 of 4.0 [Speed] with a progression getting even more targets. Also excited to see if ILB Eddie Mills Jr. 6-2 225 (Jr) Mt. St. Joseph Academy (Rutland VT) 3.5 of 3.5 [Will] will be able to get back to his sophomore season form. And of course more cootin'!
  11. I’d just like to echo this sentiment, thank you to everyone who helped advance the FCS this year like @TheSam and @Dacder and even those who are leaving us @SageBow. And of course congrats to @VerifiedThing it’s cool to see the ogs in the FCS get theirs. And good effort by @SolutionA I may have been rooting against you but you’re a great coach and contributor in the FCS as well and I know you’ll be back.
  12. Hey coach, welcome to the FCS level! How soon do you believe you will be able to truly contend for a national championship?
