    Default Delaware - Sept 22 2018

    Spring practices getting underway in the CAA:

    http://www.fcs.football/cfb/story.as...05530316886504

    DELAWARE
    HEAD COACH: Danny Rocco (7-4, one season; 97-46 overall)
    2017 RECORDS: 7-4, 5-3 CAA (Tie/4th)
    SPRING PRACTICES: March 13-April 21
    WHAT TO KNOW: While the Blue Hens improved by three wins in Rocco's first season, they remain desperate to end a playoff drought that stretches to the 2010 FCS championship game. Quarterback has been a problem in recent years, but J.P. Caruso seemed to solidify himself in the second half of last season. The defense will still lead the way with the likes of linebackers Troy Reeder and Charles Bell and safety Nasir Adderly. Unlike many years, the Blue Hens are working toward a CAA game (Rhode Island) as their season opener.
    The thumbnail sketch for James Madison:

    JAMES MADISON
    HEAD COACH: Mike Houston (28-2, two seasons; 71-21 overall)
    2017 RECORDS: 14-1, 8-0 CAA (1st)
    SPRING PRACTICES: March 13-April 14
    WHAT TO KNOW: The three-time defending CAA champ returns 10 starters (six on offense and four on defense) from a team whose bid to win back-to-back national titles fell short to North Dakota State in the championship game. The lineup is strengthened by the return of key players from injuries, including running back Cardon Johnson, offensive tackle Tyree Chavious and cornerback Charles Tutt. But the big storyline is the quarterback competition, where Cole Johnson, Gage Maloney or Pittsburgh transfer Ben DiNucci will be asked to replace standout Bryan Schor.
    Only 10 starters back for JMU, but will get back some injured players as well as at least 1 transfer -
    More on QB transfer Ben DiNucci:

    The Dukes are in need of a new starting quarterback as Bryan Schor, the one who led them to those thrilling heights the past two years, has graduated — but they weren’t in need of another candidate. They have a couple of returning scholarship passers on the roster, but DiNucci sought out James Madison upon deciding to leave Pitt in December
    DiNucci did start some games for Pitt at QB, but it may not have been a consistent situation between he and the coaching staff.

    Overall, he completed 88 of 158 passes for 1,091 yards with five touchdowns to five interceptions this past season, his first extensive action other than the Pinstripe Bowl a year ago when he came on in relief of Nathan Peterman.

    That Delaware LB, Charles Bell, broke his back in the fourth game last year (which happened to be against JMU) and was granted a medical hardship to play this year since he played as a true freshmen. I'll have to find that JMU v Delaware game on youtube because Delaware was really stuffing JMU from what I saw.

    JMU will be tough... they are very happy about getting one of their RBs back for a sixth year - Cardon Johnson.

    I watched it a few months ago. From what I remembered, the games a bit sloppy, but solid play from both defenses. Offensively, Delaware didn't have much to offer.

    Hail the BISON!!!

    I don't think any team has much offensively vs JMU

    Delaware at #9 in Hero Sports Pre-Season FCS poll

    Delaware at #13 in Athlon Sports Pre-Season FCS Poll (Craig Haley)

    13. Delaware
    (7-4, 5-3 CAA)

    Mired in a playoff drought since 2010, the Blue Hens' tradition-rich program is anxious for a return following its three-game improvement in head coach Danny Rocco's first season. The defense can get it done as it features linebackers Troy Reeder and Charles Bell and safety Nasir Adderley. But the offense remains under the microscope, although returning quarterback J.P. Caruso was 4-2 as a starter.
    Both Reeder and Adderley were 2nd Team picks on Hero Sports Pre-Season FCS All-American Team.
    Troy Reeder is a SR LB, 6’ 2” 245
    Nasir Adderley is a SR DB, 6’ 0” 190

    This game should be a good test for us. Delaware is a solid FCS team.

    So we be at CHUBS PUB at end of 3rd quarter instead of the usual halftime departure at a NDSU football game.
    Can I please come back? Ill put a disclaimer in sig that bisonville isn't responsible for my comments. FBS or BUST enough with this small timey stuff, "Bring on the Competition" is our motto right?
