Around FCS: What a difference a year makes

Newark, DE. (Sports Network) - One year ago, I was in the press box at William & Marys Zable Stadium when Delaware running back Omar Cuff scored seven touchdowns as the Blue Hens smashed the Tribe 49-31 in the first game in Colonial Athletic Association history.

Delaware moved on to the national championship game before losing to three-time titlist Appalachian State, while William & Mary stumbled to its third straight losing season.

A year later, the two teams met again on Saturday afternoon at Delaware Stadium, with their fortunes heading in distinctly different directions.

After beginning the season ranked in the top 10 of the Sports Network poll, Delaware has struggled to a 2-5 record, falling out of the rankings and losing three games in a row.

William & Mary, meanwhile, has won four of its past five games to build a 4-2 overall record and a 2-1 mark in league. The Tribe was 26th in the top-25 voting last week and Saturdays convincing 27-3 victory at Delaware will likely vault them into the rankings for the first time since 2005.

The Tribe tenaciously built a 13-0 lead in the first half against the offensively challenged Blue Hens, survived some field-position woes in the third period and finished off their first win at Delaware since 2001 with a big pass play and their second 93-yard touchdown drive of the afternoon.

Senior quarterback Jake Phillips, playing on an injured foot that forced him to miss the game with Villanova two weeks ago and slowed him last week against New Hampshire, efficiently cut apart a Delaware defense that has been decimated by injuries and off-field issues.

Phillips completed 26-of-38 passes for 338 yards and a 44-yard touchdown to receiver Chase Hill (seven catches, 105 yards) and added a one-yard TD run.

The Tribe defense, which has made a dramatic improvement from 2007, probably would have broken Delawares school-record string of 155 games scoring points had it not been for a special-teams blunder when a punt bounced off blocker David Caldwells helmet and was recovered at the William & Mary 18 early in the fourth quarter.

That set up Jon Striefskys 32-yard field goal to make it a 13-3 game with 10:50 remaining, but the Tribe followed with that TD connection between Phillips and Hill and Jonathan Grimes two-yard scoring burst to turn the game into a rout.

"We played solid and smart football," said veteran Tribe coach Jimmye Laycock. "The defense played extremely well. Jake Phillips had a very good game."

Laycock is considered by others in the coaching profession to be genius when it comes to offensive football, but this venerable headman knew that what he really needed was some help on defense if the Tribe was going to be able to turn around a three-year slide of losing, following a 2004 Atlantic 10 tri- championship and a trip to the FCS semifinals.

He has obviously found the right formula with defensive coordinator Bob Shoop this fall.

"The defense has improved, obviously," said Laycock. "We wanted to prove we can play better on defense. We are much more aggressive and we're certainly a faster defense. We're running to the ball and making plays."

Delaware, however, doesn't look anything like the offensive juggernaut that rolled to a national runner-up finish in last years playoffs behind the explosiveness of quarterback Joe Flacco and Cuff.

The Blue Hens, who are now 0-3 in the CAA, were limited to 12 first downs, 45 yards through the air and 100 yards rushing on 45 attempts as they scored 10 or fewer points for the third straight game - something Delaware hadn't done since 1983.

It was the first time Delaware had failed to score a touchdown at home since a 17-3 loss to Massachusetts in 1990, cracking a string of 116 games. The 145 yards of total offense were the fifth fewest in Delaware Stadium history.

"It all starts with the offense and we did not run the ball well and that put a lot of pressure on our quarterback," said Delaware coach K.C. Keeler. "We didn't protect well and (quarterback) Robby (Schoenhoft) did not play well. We just have a lot of dysfunction on offense right now and we have to get better."

That may be difficult for the Blue Hens, who watched Schoenhoft (10-of-23 passing for 45 yards, with one interception and two sacks) leave the game in the fourth quarter with a concussion.

Schoenhoft is unlikely to play next Saturday at Hofstra and backup Lou Ritacco is out for the season after injuring an eye while trying to play the role of a peacemaker when a fight broke on Sunday evening. A police report cleared Ritacco of wrong-doing, Keeler said.

That leaves ex-Akron quarterback Sean Hakes, who joined the program as a transfer from Californias Orange Coast College, as the only healthy quarterback for next Saturday. Hakes, who has been working as the scout team quarterback, saw his first action on Saturday during the Blue Hens final three offensive plays.

"Sean probably knows William & Marys or Maines offense better than he does ours," Keeler said.

While William & Mary can dream of a return to the playoffs, or even higher goals, Delaware is simply just trying to keep working hard - a trademark of this beleaguered Blue Hen club despite its lack of success on Saturdays - as it tries to survive the season.

"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger," Keeler repeated again on Saturday afternoon.

He can only hope that his pet phrase is true.
