PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Delaware Blue Hens have hit the midpoint of the season with a 4-2 record. But that sixth game is one they would probably like to forget as they got beat up last weekend up at Maine, 62-28. The Blue Hens will try to bounce back on Saturday as they host Albany for homecoming.
Delaware got blitzed early against the Black Bears, falling into a 27-2 hole in the first quarter.
“We didn’t do a very good job to start the game and then made a couple of mistakes,” Delaware head coach Dave Brock tells KYW Newsradio. “It’s bad enough when you turn the ball over, but when you turn it over and it ultimately ends up being two turnover touchdowns, you’ve dug yourself a pretty significant hole and we weren’t able to dig ourselves out.”
With half the season in the books, Brock talks about where his team is.
“Right now I think we’re a work in progress, which doesn’t surprise me,” Brock says. “We have to battle, it’s got to be a one-week-at-a-time season. We have six, one-week seasons left. This is the most important week, because it’s this week. We’ve got to find a way to be 1-0 against Albany.”
