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.

Where there's smoke, there's usually fire. But it also means summer kitchens are heating up for the season's rush up and down the coast. In the case of Chesapeake & Maine (316 Rehoboth Ave., Rehoboth Beach, 302-226-3600; dogfish.com ), Dogfish Head's hot new seafood restaurant in Rehoboth Beach, there's smoke bred right into some curious raw oysters with a special tea. They're potently flavored and appropriately named "Smoke on the Water. " And they're just the latest clever draw to the beer-centric juggernaut of Sam Calagione's ever-growing Dogfish Head empire, which a couple of years ago also added an inn. With a complete menu built around some ambitious seafood inspired by both the Chesapeake Bay and the state of Maine (which inspired the brewery's name)

WILMINGTON - Nearly every time you look down at the sidewalk, there's a stenciled image of a mustachioed face and the word "Essere. " The source of this is OperaDelaware, which has imposed the likeness of little-known composer Franco Faccio onto the local landscape while making his opera Hamlet part of the international landscape after 145 years of obscurity. "Essere" means "to be" - better than "not to be. " With an intelligent cast, solid direction both on stage and in the orchestra pit, plus the treat of being at Wilmington's lovely Grand Opera House, the opera's East Coast premiere on Saturday is what OperaDelaware hoped for: an event worth traveling for with Hamlet presented in repertory with Verdi's Falstaff . Faccio buried his opera after a disastrous 1871 La Scala production - and now, resurrected by conductor Anthony Barrese, it feels strangely familiar but new, like something Verdi should've written but didn't.

On a green slope outside Wilmington, a four-story, $100 million office project is rising to house the market leader in an unusual industry: the procreation, care, and maintenance of corporations. It's the new home of Corporation Service Co. With a staff of 2,000 worldwide, registering more than one-quarter of new companies in "America's Corporate Capital" each year, CSC is the largest of scores of firms that service "legal entities" there. Its closest rival is CT Corp. (the former Corporation Trust Co. )

WILMINGTON - Poisoned goblets. A skull. And swords. Such iconic objects - all carefully laid out in the corner of the rehearsal room - can only add up to Hamlet . "We're ready!" said Brendan Cooke, general director of OperaDelaware. But not for the play. It's an operatic version, by a composer whose name is unknown even to opera mavens. Amleto (as it is known in Italian) by Franco Faccio (1840-91) had a disastrous 1871 La Scala premiere, when the star tenor had neither a voice nor an understudy.
