BETHANY BEACH, Del. - Perched on a counter stool, Lisa Cunningham was flipping through dozens of vacation food photos on her iPhone while she waited for lunch at Matt's Fish Camp restaurant. Dressed for the beach, the Virginia resident recalled each dish with such zeal, one would assume she had just returned from a gastronomic tour of Provence. But this digestible anthology was compiled in - wait for it - Delaware. Delaware? It turns out that a respectable number of good restaurants have sprouted in the towns that line Delaware's coast in recent years.

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.

Having felt the pangs of losing an embarrassing home game to what was believed to be a lesser opponent last year, the Temple Owls wanted to play as complete a game as they could on Saturday to set the table for play in the American Athletic Conference. It turned out a full game wasn't needed. The Owls scored 49 points by halftime in a 59-0 destruction of overmatched Delaware State (0-4) in front of an announced crowd of 19,202 at Lincoln Financial Field. The 59-point victory was the largest by the Owls in the modern era of college football (since 1971)

Temple (1-1) wasn't entertaining too much talk this past week about the possibility that it might overlook Delaware State (0-3) on Saturday. Returning to action following their first of three bye weeks this season, Temple will host Football Championship Subdivision Delaware State at Lincoln Financial Field. And while some have attempted to paint this meeting between the Owls and the Middle Eastern Athletic Conference opponent as an easy win, Temple coach Matt Rhule is not buying into it. "We understood it as coaches because many of us coached at FCS schools," Rhule, referring to his coaching staff, said.

The similarities between the massive, decaying Delaware Station next to Philadelphia's Penn Treaty Park and the Franklin Institute on Logan Square may not be immediately obvious, but they are really sister buildings. Both were designed by Philadelphia architect John T. Windrim in the early 20th century, and dressed in the classical drapery of the past. Yet both serve as temples to our modern faith in technology. There's a difference, though. One has led a privileged life as a science museum while the other was a hardworking electric generating station.

TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team learned a lot of harsh lessons last season. None was harder than a one-point loss to FCS Fordham at home in the third game on a Hail Mary pass at the buzzer. It didn't matter that Fordham would win its first 10 and make it to the second round of the playoffs before losing to eventual national runner-up Towson. You know what they say about perceptions. It's one thing to lose on two other long, late passes against Rutgers and Central Florida. And squander 21-point leads against SMU and Connecticut.

They practiced all last week as if they had a game, and on Monday they turned their attention to Saturday's opponent, Delaware State, at Lincoln Financial Field.

" Temple (1-1) looks to bounce back after a 31-24 loss to Navy in its home opener on Sept.

TEARS WILL BE shed Sunday night along the Atlantic City Boardwalk when one lucky lady is crowned Miss America. For Miss Delaware's family, win or lose, tears will flow - joyous tears for Brittany Lewis beaming up on the stage, and tears for her sister Gina Clarke-Lewis, who was slain in Camden County in 2010. "She's keeping Gina's memory alive just by being up there," Brenda Lewis said of her daughter. Brittany Lewis, 24, is about as close as it gets to a hometown favorite, having grown up a few miles away, across the inlet in Brigantine.
