Brock said that the process to build depth and player development could take two years to complete. However, Brock made it perfectly clear that the goal for next season is the same as it was this year and is going to be each year going forward.
"We're going to evaluate every aspect of the program, starting with the head coach," Brock explained. "If difficult or challenging decisions need to be made I'll make them. I don't have a problem doing that. But you have to have a fair assessment and fair evaluation."
That is, until the Hens lost to inferior teams on paper, at least William Mary and Richmond on back to back November Saturdays at Delaware Stadium.
Brock has preached all season long about the need to establish depth at every position, stating that the roster is "out of balance," including having just two scholarship running backs going Under Armour Shoes Kuwait
"Certainly a disappointing end to the season," Brock said in his opening statement at Monday's press luncheon. "We had put ourselves in position to play meaningful games and weren't able win those games and put ourselves in Under Armour Golf Shoes Review
The Hens took care of business in Rhode Island, picking up their first win in New England in what seemed like since the Mayflower landed. The Hens then traveled to Towson and pulled off the biggest fourth quarter comeback in school history, rallying from a 21 point deficit to upset the seventh ranked Tigers.
Disgruntled fans shuffled back to their cars assuming that for the third straight Black Friday, shopping would happen without the anticipation of a playoff game. The 22 point collapse at Villanova then confirmed it.
The Hens' playoff chances were slim going into the Villanova game. And then Saturday's epic fourth quarter collapse at PPL Park sealed the team's fate. The loss was the second worst fourth quarter collapse in team history, topping only the Hens' 36 33 loss to Villanova in 1969. The Hens led 33 7 in that one.
After going an expected 3 1 through the first four games of the season all three wins were against teams that finished with losing records, the loss to BCS Navy the Hens' 29 22 come from behind win against then No. 14 James Madison gave fans hope that maybe Brock would lead UD back to the playoffs for the first time since 2010.
Well, they did in 2013. But, unfortunately, Delaware (7 5, 4 4 CAA) lost all three of them as fans watched what was once a somewhat promising season before daylight saving time, have the lights go out on it during a three game stretch over a period of 15 days.
into the 2014 spring practice and UD having only recruited two defensive backs from 2010 12.
That evaluation will include the coaching staff and players, Brock said.
Brock refused to pin the shortcomings of this year's team on one particular unit, instead reverting back to the issue of player development.
"College football is about player development," he implored. "I think that's what we have to be in the business of Under Armour Curry 2.5 On Feet
doing. We Under Armour Shoes For Men 2017 want to recruit people. We want to grow them up here. We are going to be in the player development business here and that's how we are going to do it."
It was a bitter ending to a season that started with cautious optimism under the new regime.
Any time a Delaware team doesn't make the playoffs way too often in the last decade there are going to be changes. With Brock having the opportunity to begin to shape the UD program the way he wants it for the first time since his hire less than a year ago, fans can expect more program upheaval than usual.
"There is nothing going on [in this program] that recruiting can't fix," he said. "At [the University of Delaware], you should be able to attract a top level student, a top level football player, and a top level person from the high school ranks."
All was good in Blue Hen Nation as fans started talking about playoff tailgates featuring leftovers from their Thanksgiving feasts.
"[When I came here] I gave the players my word that I would do things a certain way [for a year]," Brock said. "I kept my word. That year is up. And now we are going to go about the business of starting an offseason program. The way we are going to do it, we are going to implement some things that will be different than they were last year."
But a blowout loss at Maine the following week quickly brought even the most optimistic supporters back to earth. And if that didn't, the nail biting, last second home win over Albany (1 11) the following week did.
Record comeback highlight of disappointing UD football season
the postseason, which is where, ultimately, Delaware belongs."
