Widener has had night games in the recent past. When the Pride won the title a couple years ago, they beat Del Val on a rainy, windy Friday night.

Thanks Gordon

If I recall they played Wesley under the lights a few years ago, but that may have been in Dover...WU does not have many night games...

Nice catch. +k  Hmmm ... I wonder if the MIAA would accept Michigan and Michigan State? ;D

With the physical infrastructure alone, there is ZERO chance any of this would happen - the Big House with 5,000 instead of 110,000 each week?? ::)

Agree totally....will never happen. Delaney is just trying to call their bluff. Basically 1 fool calling a bunch of other fools bluff.....Delaney would never give it all up in the name of academics no matter what horse manure comes out of his mouth (And with him and the ncaa it's ALOT)

bman, glad to see widener on the wesley schedule.  both teams are replacing parts, but the coaching change at widener may be tough to overcome.  wesley will have a new qb, but many other parts will still be there from last year.  widener is also going to have a new qb, so it will be interesting to see how the teams handle it.  enjoy the next 5 months, well if the weather ever gets above 50.

Was at DVC last weekend....Football field was about 1/2 way torn up with big dirt mounds around the edges of it. The new facility is going to be great. With new press boxes and a 3 lane jogging track around the new field and lights being installed it's going to be really nice for games in all kinds of weather... Also breaking news...PBR's daughter has officially signed and entered into DVC for small animal science (pre-vet program) she had it down to Va. Tech and DVC and chose DVC...Great kid graduated high school early and has been taking full load of college courses already and will enter DVC in the fall as a sophmore credit wise....(Good thing she got her mothers smarts..)

PBR

Just curious - a 3 lane track?  I thought they might spring for the whole new track concept, considering Del Val actually has track & field....I know that pushes seating further back, but....

Thanks Bman...I was happy either way...hokie or a aggie. She is a great kid and to only need 2 classes this fall to graduate she is an incredible kid. Very happy for her and all her hard work.

Bill they are doing a 3 land jogging track for students around the new field being put down in phase I of this project. Phase II they will be building a brand new track with stands next to the baseball field which is not too far from the existing football stadium and current track.

Ran a 5K race at DVC last weekend and football field is really taking shape. Will be nice when all the other upgrades are done as well... Here is a story in the local paper with some pix  http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/local/the_intelligencer_news/a-generous-donation-produces-new-football-field/article_d3fa5e53-cb36-5a37-8163-af3b7df044bd.html

Nice to see the field is up and coming. I had a chance to run a 5K in Baltimore a couple weeks ago.

Getting there bman....Last I saw last week the stone was down and rolled/packed on the field...looked just about ready to put the nexTurf down. Although they may do that last until the track and other work is done around the field to minimize risk of damage to the field...but I am not sure the order of things. It will be ready for fall sports both for ncaa games and intramural, with lighting for night games. Gong to be very nice to have a great field year round in all conditions with possibility of night games.
