Hello and Welcome to UD Football Team’s Unofficial Blog. My name is Matthew Fox and I will be tracking the 2005 season of the Division IAA Fighting Blue Hens. The purpose of this blog is to provide readers with scores and highlights as well as news and accomplishments of the team. Please make posts and comments to this blog with your opinions and ideas.

In 2005, the Blue Hens are looking to improve on last year’s admirable 9-4 record and will again contend for the Division I-AA National Championship which they won in 2003. In 2004 Head Coach KC Keeler brought his team to NCAA I-AA quarterfinals. The team will look to senior captains Sonny Riccio (QB) and Roger Brown (DB) for leadership and encouragement. Other players who could make an impact this year include Sophomore DB Omar Cuff, Junior DB Rashaad Woodard, Junior DL Bubba Jesperson, Senior DL Tom Parks, Junior RB Niquan Lee, Senior OL Brian Simms, and Senior WR Brian Ingram.

Recently, the UD football was ranked 10th in a preseason poll conducted by Sports Network. The Blue Hens begin their 2005 campaign with three home night games. UD opens against Lehigh on September 10th, and then takes on West Chester on September 17th, and Holy Cross on September 24th.

2005 guarantees to be an exciting season for the Blue and Gold. Please continue to read our posts and make your own comments as well. -M. Fox
