The Scouting Report
With the regular season winding down, the Blue Hens have swooped back into the Top 25 rankings thanks to a recent three-game winning streak. The streak continued in thrilling fashion on November 2, when the Hens completed the largest comeback in school history. Down 21 points to seventh-ranked Towson in the fourth quarter, the team stormed back to seize a 32-31 victory–highlighted by 15 points in the game’s final 48 seconds. Rather than having his players buy up all the town’s lottery tickets, first-year head coach Dave Brock figures to parlay this momentum into a strong finish on the field, including against Richmond in the season’s final game at Delaware Stadium on November 16.
University of Delaware Blue Hens
Since its origins in the late 19th Century, the University of Delaware athletic department has transcended simply what happens on the field or on the court. Indeed, the Blue Hens have hatched professional football and basketball stars. The school’s football team has won six national titles, including three during the 1970s, and its women’s lacrosse team once captured back-to-back-to-back championships from 1981-83. But when fans look around during Blue Hens events, they notice more than points being scored or referees feeding the little birds inside their whistles. They might spot YoUDee, a mascot whose roots trace back to the Revolutionary War, or the school’s nationally ranked dance team pumping up the crowd. Of course, there’s also the school’s marching band, which at 300 members strong, cranks out stirring renditions of the UD fight song.
