FCS Playoffs - Delaware vs Delaware St.

You may be wondering why this game is on ESPN this Friday. Delaware and Delaware State will meet up for the first time ever (despite being from the same state and only 50 miles apart).  Delaware State, a traditional black college, won the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference with a 9-0 record in conference, 10-1 overall (there 1 loss being to FBS-Kent State).  Despite being one of the better schools in FCS, Delaware has refused to play Delaware State -- with almost everything pointing to race.  In a editorial earlier this year, Jeff Pearlman, writer for SI and Delaware Alum, described the situation as follows "The University of Delaware's persistent refusal to face Delaware State University in football is cowardly, pig-headed, self-righteous and, worst of all, oozing with racism."

Despite all this, there is a game to be played!!
