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.

Howard had just grounded out to end a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers when Smith hurled the beer toward him, police said.

As he prepares to convene a hearing Monday that could shape the fate of a controversial measure to let Pennsylvania child-sex abuse victims sue over decades-old attacks, Sen. Stewart Greenleaf (R., Montgomery) has declined to publicly take a position on the bill. But the law firm that bears his name has not always been so reserved. In 2008, records show, lawyers for the firm, Elliott Greenleaf, were among advocates who unsuccessfully argued that a similar proposal under consideration in Delaware was unconstitutional.

The city where the nation began is once again in serious start-up mode. So many people in so many places trying to come up with the next hot thing. An app to steer consumers to locally sourced foods. A natural deodorant . A clip to keep a lid attached to a coffee cup, to avoid having to set it down on a dirty countertop as you add sugar and cream. A bacteria-detection process to save beer and wine from spoilage. A smiling sponge that went on to be the highest-selling product featured on ABC's Shark Tank . A wearable help-summoning device . All emanate from Philadelphia-area start-ups I've written about since the Inquirer assigned me to cover that inventive and inspiring sector of the economy six years ago. Philadelphia Media Network wants to find and highlight even more through Stellar Startups, an inaugural competition open to an unlimited number of entrants from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

The state of Delaware said Tuesday that it would phase in a new policy to treat all hepatitis C patients in its Medicaid program. States have been under pressure from the Obama Administration and lawsuits - in Delaware's case, Harvard Law School's Center for Health Law & Policy Innovation had threatened litigation - to abandon money-saving policies that limited treatment with effective but costly new medications to the sickest patients. More than three million Americans are estimated to be infected with hepatitis C, a bloodborne virus that may cause no symptoms for decades but is the leading cause of liver cancer and transplants.

What happened to his son remains so seared in his memory that when he talks about it, Thomas Conaty speaks as though he is still the young father of a grade-school boy. "Let me tell you briefly about Matty," said Conaty, a 74-year-old dentist. "Matty is the guy that made things happen here. " Matthias Conaty was 9 when he was sexually abused by a chaplain at St. Edmund's Academy in Wilmington. Conaty's son stayed mum about it for years. But the boy had grit, his father said, later earning two degrees, getting married, having two kids.

The twisted heap of metal had been lost underwater since July 1944, a casualty of fierce combat over the Pacific island of Palau. Lost, but not forgotten. This week, a research team that includes University of Delaware scientists announced it had found the TBM-1C Avenger with the help of sonar-equipped underwater robots. The downed plane was scarcely recognizable as an aircraft, overgrown with coral and algae and mangled by the force of its landing. The research group, called Project Recover, identified the wreck as an Avenger largely by its distinctive gun turret, said Mark Moline, director of Delaware's School of Marine Science and Policy.

It didn't take long for new Delaware men's basketball coach Martin Ingelsby to reach out and land one of his high school alma mater's top players. Ryan Daly, a 6-foot-4 sharpshooter and senior at Archbishop Carroll, committed to play for the Blue Hens on Wednesday night. Ingelsby starred as a point guard at Carroll in the mid-1990s and went on to play at Notre Dame. He spent the last seven seasons as an assistant coach at Notre Dame under Mike Brey. "That's a huge thing, the Carroll connection," Daly said.
