NEWARK, Del. -- This column was supposed to be about race.
Well, not exactly race. Race and class and money and two schools playing each other on Friday for the first time in history. It was supposed to be about the University of Delaware versus Delaware State University. White. Black. Upstate. Downstate. Dynasty. Upstart. How, having repeatedly refused to face the Hornets for 80-some years, Delaware finally met its in-state "rival" in a first-round playoff game.
