The Scouting Report
On September 6, the Flyers will swoop back into Welcome Stadium to open their 2014 campaign against Georgetown. Last season, UD compiled a 7-4 record while holding opponents to just 262 total points—the fourth lowest total in the Pioneer League. More than a dozen starters from last year’s squad will return this fall, with the rest of the depth chart getting filled in by rising recruits and tackling dummies magically transformed into real players. Senior quarterback Will Bardo headlines that group of returning starters. In 2013, the duel-threat co-captain earned MVP honors while throwing 13 touchdowns and rushing for another nine.
College basketball fans refer to the NCAA Tournament as “March Madness.” And during the 2014 tournament, the University of Dayton proved why. The Flyers shook up the basketball world by upsetting Ohio St. and Syracuse en route to an Elite 8 appearance.
That unlikely run was another in a long line of accomplishments—not just for Dayton hoops, but for the University’s 16 varsity programs. In support of its success on fields and courts, the school’s students have become a renowned part of the game day experience. But instead of arranging a marching band to play “Victory” as their morning alarm, many of the students join the Red Scare, an avid cheering group that currently stands as the largest student organization on campus. Outfitted with aviation gear, school mascot Rudy Flyer also plays a major role in pumping up crowds during games.
