    Be careful what you ask for. I thought the time had come for Andy Talley to move on & although Ferrante is a solid citizen it felt like the team took a big step back. I think it had to do with Nova losing DC Billy Crocker to UConn & key assistant Tony Trisciani to Elon as their DC.

    Nova blamed their lackluster season on injuries, but I think losing Talley & key assistants changed the culture enough to make a difference.

    The difference is that Jimmye Laycock's Tribe has experienced a steady decline for several seasons, Talley was fielding very competitive teams until his retirement. With a 0-8 conference record, W&M can't drop any lower.

    This is true. Nova makes the playoffs in even years. We’ll be back next season.

    1 of the early signees enrolled this week so he will be in for Spring ball; got a 2nd guy coming in who played at UVa, left and went to community college in KS for a year. He is in class now as well.

    Mediocre backup, better runner than passer - in other words about what you had last season. The Delaware fans will have this, among many other things, to be critical about Danny Rocco.
