Going to get an idea (at least by proxy) of how Wesley and Frostburg compare this weekend in the Del Val-Stevenson matchup in the MAC. The transitive property isn't always reliable but it is something to speculate on come game day.

Oh shoot...he brings out the "transitive property"....+1 for that! Nicely done!

Not bad for a social studies guy
Thank you sir! Now the only question is if I used it in the right context. :D

Doesn't matter....it was perfectly incorporated!!

Frosty fans, I was watching the ITH radio podcast last night and learned that no makeup date for the CNU game is scheduled.  Hobart has a 9 game schedule as well and an open date on 9/29....just sayin'...

That would be great. The time would be now if it was to occur. I thought UCF and West Virginia were going to play each last week after their cancellations, but with such short notice and logistics, its hard to find room & Board for the size of the teams (mayble neutral site). I'm pretty sure Frostburg Coach would play with a day's notice... ;D
Yeah, I bet logistics are probably hard to make games like that work on short notice. Doesn't Hobart usually only stick with a 9 game season anyway?

It's still their Homecoming. Maybe they'd like a football game.

Frostburg coaches had exhausted many avenues for making up the CNU and possibly persuing another game. A lot of the efforts fell through. Just have to go beat wesley and call it a day.
I hope they beat Wesley too, and but overlook Rowan in the process ;)

That wasn't going to happen. I will say i was impressed with the Rowan QB. One of the few kids over the years that Frostburg hadnt made quit during the middle of a game.

Here's at least one more non quitter....I'm sure there are dozens more.

2017 v F'Burg

   
PASSING            C-A          YDS   LG   TD   INT
K.j. Kearney   21-34   319   34   4   1

If only i could show you film from 2016 when that same qb fell on the ground instead of getting hit.

He got up in one piece and on the next play ran for a TD!

He almost beat the Bobcats last year, if CNU doesn't bust a coverage late and forget to cover the tight end.

D2 schools donít tend to give full scholarships to single players. The tend to spread the mneypool around the roster and much of it based on need to the particular student. Or at least that how they did it a long time ago when I played.

It was a crazy and long day. There was a t-storm cell that parked over Dover and dropped torrential rains from 4 to 5:30. There was flash flooding on most of the streets and the field had 6-8 inches on the home side of the field that took a while to drain. The field actually bubbled up at the 50-yard line. Kickoff was pushed back until 7:45.

We went on air at 6:30. I spent 45 minutes pulling former players out of the stands to talk to about Coach on air. That was cathartic. It always amazes me how one person can impact so many. As a teacher, It inspires me.

 Started our normal pregame at 7:15. The scheduled ceremony was pushed back a couple of weeks until the next home game.

I think it hit me most during the moment of silence and national anthem. I got choked up as did many I watched in the crowd.

There was a lightning delay after the first series, so we filled for another 40 minutes. After that it was a football game. Both teams made their share of first game mistakes. I think Del Val should be just fine despite the number of losses from last season. They have Darden back at QB and he is among the best in the east imo. They have nice mix of backs to replace Ellis. Nelson at wide out and 6í5 TE Allen are good targets. The defense causes confusion with a 3-4 that stunts a lot. They had a chance to take the lead early in the 3rd but fumbled it away. Then they lost track of Kemp and Peele and paid the price on a couple long TD passes.

The game ended around 11:15, did the post game. Gave Coachís parents a hug and a couple of beers in the parking lot with former players and coaches. Swapped a lot of great stories about Coach, including the time he offered Coach Fred (he did a great Coach Fred impersonation) his resume on the opening night of the Cruthedral  ;D

Got home around 2 am. All in all it ended up being a pretty good day. He would have loved it.

I saw them scrimmage Wesley in the preseason, they were a little banged up injury-wise. Looks like they were in the game for a half against a Salisbury team that has a veteran defense and oline but is breaking in new people at every skill position.

Frostburg looking good so far.

Wasn't the Rowan/Widener game 6-0 last year, 35 points scored so far early 2nd quarter. Rowan in the red zone.

I think Del Val is still very good this season and in it all the way to the Keystone Cup. Darden is a winner, a senior, and has the ability to put that team on his back. They do a great job recruiting there and Iím pretty sure the cupboard isnít bare.

To me, Widener must be better at the quarterback position. The guy(s) from last year have a long way to go.

Stevenson has a senior QB, like DVU, and a fertile area for recruiting. They will have players.

To me, Lyco has to get bigger, stronger and faster. Always well-coached.

Jason - There is a MASSIVE difference between guessing, from a distance, that the "cupboard isn't bare" and actually knowing what is in and what's not in the cupboard. It's sort of like being set up on a blind date, where you HOPE that she is as attractive as your friend says that she is vs. actually knowing exactly what she looks like before meeting her ;)

Widener and Stevenson should easily be able to take care of a young and rebuilding DelVal on their respective home fields. It's a mockery this year of that does NOT happen:

- 9 out of 11 defensive starters from last year's team gone, including All-Everything safety Miller, the other safety, both CB's, all 4 LB's and the stud nose tackle/heavyweight wrestler (Issak)

- 6 out of 11 offensive starters gone, including the MAC's best running back (Ellis) along with his two primary backup's.........and two All-MAC offensive linemen (Walsh and Sylvester)

- Team's best punt returner (multiple TD's last year) AND team's best kick returner (multiple TD's last year) gone. They are/were two separate players.

- Widener and Stevenson both on the road

- The only team in the MAC to not have perennial lightweight's FDU AND Misericordia NOT on their schedule in 2018 (and looks like 2019 as well)

If the coach at DelVal somehow wins the MAC given ALL of THAT........................not only should he win MAC Coach of the Year, but he should be the D-III Coach of the Year, Doug Pederson's (from the four time World Champion and Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles) heir apparent, a statue should be erected in Doylestown and he should be able to then make the blind see and heal the sick and eventually be cannonized (fellow Catholics will get that one) ;)

This would be the all-time great coaching job in the history of the MAC. They lost the motherlode from last season while several other teams bring back a ton of experienced talent. We'll see how it plays out. That's why they play the games. :)

This is a great ****ing post...especially the last two paragraphs...+k

jm never afraid to take a stand... :)

The Aggies have over 60 upperclassmen back. They have been to a postseason game every since 2003 except one. Their coaching staff develops players well because, you are right, Duke and his staff are good coaches.

I predicted that they would be in the mix until the last game of the season. This hardly sounds like a stretch.They beat Widener by five touchdowns last season and Stevenson by three touchdowns.

And actually, I am not really that far away. I could be there in 1:45, if the traffic on the Blue Route is good.  ;D

He was the head coach at Mansfield when Mike played there.
