Wanted: Delaware's players
Ralph Friedgen spoke very highly of Delaware’s squad this afternoon, even saying, “There are a lot of guys on their team that I would like to have on my team.”
Delaware may not be the East Coast’s Southern Cal, but it is no pushover either. Delaware returns 14 starters and 44 letterwinners from last year’s team that reached the Division I-AA national title game. Granted, quarterback Joe Flacco is no longer around.
That said, Delaware was still ranked among the top 10 in Division I-AA in at least five different polls. Here is some quick reaction from Ralph from earlier today:
“They have quite a few players that were on Division I teams,” Friedgen said. “I have been very impressed with their offensive line and defensive line. They are very athletic in the secondary. They have nine starters back on defense. One question mark is the quarterback situation.”
Ohio State transfer Robby Schoenhoft and redshirt freshman Lou Ritacco are competing for the starting quarterback job, and Coach K.C. Keeler has been quite coy about when and how he will name a starter.
