Roman Catholic's Kasseim Everett orally committed to Delaware for football in August. A few months later, wishing to keep his options open, he decommitted from the Blue Hens. Now, after strongly giving consideration to Temple, Everett, a quick-footed two-way back, has committed again to Delaware. "Temple and Delaware were similar in many ways," Everett said, "but I think Delaware's interest was a little bit stronger. " The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Everett, an Inquirer second-team all-Southeastern Pennsylvania selection as a defensive back last season, also had scholarship offers from Maine and Stony Brook.

Dave Nelson, a backfield mate of 1940 Heisman Trophy winner Tom Harmon, was a 1942 graduate of the University of Michigan who loved his alma mater so much that, upon becoming head football coach and athletic director at the University of Delaware in 1951, he adopted Michigan's distinctive maize-and- blue helmet and uniform. But the Delaware football program was to take on its own identity, shaped largely by Nelson, who compiled an 84-42-2 record in 15 seasons as coach and served as athletic director from 1951 through 1984.

Given all the social problems associated with gambling, it was a welcome and right decision by a federal appeals court in Philadelphia to block Delaware's attempt to expand legalized betting on sports. Despite the setback, the First State is wrong to continue with a plan to skirt the law by allowing bets on multiple games. Delaware lawmakers, like those in Pennsylvania and other states, are addicted to gambling as a way to solve budget woes. The gaming arms race remains a bad policy on several fronts.

Greg Miller of Rancocas Valley has made an oral commitment to play basketball at the University of Delaware. Miller, a 6-foot-4 swingman, said he committed to the Blue Hens after making a campus visit over the weekend. He plans to sign Nov. 8, the first day of the NCAA early signing period. Miller said he chose Delaware over Boston University and Drexel. He had made unofficial visits to both of those schools. Last season, Miller averaged 10 points a game for Rancocas Valley, which won the South Jersey Group 3 title.

Several hundred shivering spectators turned out for last night's championship game of the inaugural Liberty Bell Classic college baseball tournament at Veterans Stadium. But while the fans in the stands huddled under blankets and sipped hot chocolate, the red-hot University of Delaware team put on a clinic of exceptional pitching, hitting and fielding. The Blue Hens (22-7) sparkled from start to finish, taking the title with a convincing 6-2 victory over Villanova. Four Delaware players made the all-tournament team - led by Brian Lesher, who batted .583, drove in six runs in three games and was voted the Classic's most valuable player.

Scott Rodgers made both ends of a one-and-one free throw with 19 seconds remaining to nail down a 62-60 Drexel win over Delaware yesterday at the Bob Carpenter Center. The Dragons (11-16, 4-11 Colonial Athletic Association) did not take the lead for good until Randy Oveneke hit a jumper with one minute to play in the game. Brian Johnson sank two free throws for Delaware (11-14, 8-7) with 10.1 seconds remaining, and the Blue Hens got one last chance when Rodgers missed the front end of a one-and-one with 8.7 seconds left.

William and Mary placekicker Brian Shallcross picked a good time to redeem himself. After missing from 20 and 25 yards in regulation, Shallcross nailed a 42-yard field goal in overtime that just cleared the crossbar, giving the Tribe a 10-7 Yankee Conference victory over Delaware yesterday at Zable Stadium. Delaware (7-2 overall, 5-2 conference), ranked sixth in Division I-AA, had a chance to win the game in regulation, but Sean Leach's 35-yard field-goal attempt with six seconds left was blocked.

FRISCO, Texas - Pat Devlin transferred to Delaware from Penn State in 2009 for two reasons: to get playing time and win a national title. The fifth-year senior quarterback from Downingtown East has to settle for playing time. Eastern Washington defeated Delaware, 20-19, Friday night at Pizza Hut Park for the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision title. The victory, in front of a crowd of 13,027, gave the Eagles (13-2) their first national title. Junior quarterback Bo Levi Mitchell, a Southern Methodist transfer, produced three second-half touchdown passes.

LEAH PEREZ had just finished her dinner at Spasso Italian Grill, on Front Street near Chestnut, when a black Volkswagen sedan sped past her down Chestnut. "It was all smashed up like [the driver] had hit something," she said. "He had trouble controlling it. " Minutes later, that erratic driver - who police said was fleeing a crash with a parked car - launched his damaged vehicle into the depths of the Delaware River. And about an hour after that, the 36-year-old man was dead.

LOOK, YOUR natural instinct might have been to think of puns when you heard that a couple got busted for having sex on the roof of a Chipotle Mexican Grill in Delaware on Saturday. You could have made jokes about someone other than a staffer stuffing tacos at the restaurant. If that would have been too obvious, or maybe too crude, you could have riffed on some of the banners that appear on the company's online menu, like: "Don't ever call it an appetizer," or "I'm not addicted, I just eat 'em everyday," or "Our menu isn't long - but it's long on options.

STANTON, Del. - How races are run often is more determinant in results than what horses are running in those races. How horses undergo subtle changes over time also matters every bit as much as the history of those horses. When 2014 began, the idea of Belle Gallantey beating Princess of Sylmar in any race, much less Saturday's Grade I $750,000 Delaware Handicap would have been laughable. In 2013, Belle Gallantey was 1-for-14 and was claimed for $35,000 from her final race of the year.

The University of Delaware on Thursday canceled its agreement with Paoli-based Data Centers L.L.C. , killing the state-backed $1 billion-plus plan to build a corporate data center and natural gas plant on campus. A committee of UD officials and professors had unanimously voted against the project. Profs and managers on the "working group" that UD president Patrick Harker asked to review the proposal "concluded that the proposed facility, which included a 279-megawatt co-generation power plant, is not consistent with a first-class science and technology campus and high-quality development to which UD is committed," the university said in a statement With Gov. Jack Markell and the state's business and political establishment backing the plant, Harker had signed an initial agreement inviting the company on campus.

Pier 68, a 400-foot-long slab of crumbling concrete and overgrown weeds, juts into the Delaware River from a shopping center parking lot off Christopher Columbus Boulevard. The fence surrounding it is looped with barbed wire. Several signs read, "Danger: Do not trespass. " On Thursday, Mayor Nutter and the Delaware River Waterfront Corp. (DRWC) announced that by the summer of 2015, this forbidden space is to be transformed into a manicured park. "This park will supply green space in a section of the city that really needs it," Nutter said.

The cross-river travels of 26-year-old Laurie Wint continued this week, as the man linked to killings on either side of the Delaware - and convicted already in a Pennsylvania court - appeared before a judge in Camden County on Tuesday. In June 2011, Wint allegedly shot Kevin Miller, 19, in a Camden park during a dispute over the victim's 15-year-old girlfriend. Then, according to authorities, he fled to Warminster, where, weeks later, he stabbed Tyrone Newman, 33, to death. He fled back to Camden, where he was apprehended and extradited to Bucks County.
