The Scouting Report
In 2013, the Spiders had an up and down season—but they finished strong by winning the final four games, highlighted by back-to-back wins over nationally-ranked Delaware and William & Mary. During that stretch, the Spiders became an offensive powerhouse, averaging 36 points per game on the arm of quarterback Michael Strauss. Now, after a long offseason of constructing their pads from bubble wrap and duct tape, Strauss and his teammates return to Robins Stadium to finish what they began a season ago. Sports analysts have taken notice of the team’s potential, too: the Spiders have been ranked as high as 12th in preseason polls.
University of Richmond Athletics
The history of the University of Richmond’s athletics program stretches back to the 1800s. The Spiders’ football team has faced the College of William and Mary more than 100 times since 1898, making their rivalry over the Capital Cup the fourth-longest in college football, not including the timeless rivalry between groundskeepers and gophers. On the national stage, the Spiders won the NCAA Division I FCS Championship in 2008, their first-ever nationwide title. Such outsized accolades extend to Richmond’s men’s basketball team as well. The Spiders have a reputation for upsetting heavy favorites in March as the only team in NCAA tournament history to win games as a 12-seed, 13-seed, 14-seed, and 15-seed.
