Good try. Coach Derba is going to try and eliminate games against D3 opponents, so that won't fit this fairy tale.

D3, as in the UMPI & UMF's of the world... but the USM series will be renewed in time and played at Hadlock. Should have happened a long time ago, but Trimper snuffed it out after that last loss, and Derba seems a bit more open to a conversation from what I gather. Hope it becomes an annual game and not just a fairy tale, Bam, but let's start with one first.

I fully support our Division I program playing exclusively Division I games. I have no interest in seeing Maine play D-3 games. Would rather see some more recognizable names from D I appear on the schedule, and potentially on the home schedule. That's the direction I want to see it go.

Derba has the right stuff to make UMaine baseball a consistent contender

....Thus, Derba’s most significant challenge will be identifying high-caliber baseball players (and students) who have the right stuff to succeed in Orono.

One of his primary objectives should be to get the state’s top players to attend UMaine. Derba has helped bring in some outstanding Maine talent with a solid corps of Black Bear pitchers that includes Justin Courtney of Bangor, Cody Laweryson of Bingham, Trevor DeLaite of Bangor and Brewer’s Matt Pushard.

Derba should be able to tap into some connections in the Greater New York area, from which he comes, along with a network of contacts in Florida, where Trimper expended a lot of effort in recent years.

The most daunting part of Derba’s job comes in working with a limited budget. Trimper for years lamented that for whatever funding UMaine baseball received as part of its budget, it was necessary to go out and raise an equivalent amount for the Black Bears to be able to compete.
