University Of Delaware Fightin' Blue Hens
The Delaware Fightin 'Blue Hens are members of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) and the College Football Playoffs. The University of Delaware athletics team has a long track record in the NCAA Division I Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Blue Hens compete in football, competing in both the football and men's and women's basketball departments of college football at FBS level and in the National Collegiate Athletics Association (NCAA).
The Penn sports team is nicknamed Quakers, after the religion adopted by William Penn, who established Pennsylvania as a Quaker province. The Penn sports team has been nicknamed "The Quakes" since its founding in the late 18th century, in honor of the religious beliefs of William Penn, the founder of Penn University, and his wife Mary and children.
Perhaps the most famous Quaker mascot belongs to the University of Pennsylvania, Penn Quaker Wrestling dates back to high school in Ohio, Pennsylvania and Indiana, where the first intercollegiate wrestling championship was held at the Weightman Hall Gym on the Penn campus of the university. Perhaps the most famous Quaker mascots belong to it, and perhaps the most famous of all. From high schools in Ohio and Pennsylvania (and Indiana), Penn Quakers' Wrestling dates back to the late 18th century, to a high school wrestling tournament in New York City in 1855, where it was also held in the gym of Weightman's Hall, a predecessor of the Weightman's Hall of Gym, located on the campus of the University of Penn, and Penn University itself.
In 2007, the Delaware Blue Hens returned to the championship game, losing to defending champion Appalachian State. The game was played in front of more than 1,000 fans, with the winning BlueHens receiving a travelling trophy. Although the recognition of the Blue Hen as a state bird lies before Penn Quaker Wrestling, which uses the name "Blue Hen" as its mascot, University of Delaware intercollegiate athletics teams have used the names since they began existence, beginning in 1911.
The attendance figures may have been disappointing by the program's traditional standards, but they surpassed the previous record of 1,000 fans for a home game at Delaware Stadium. The support from the fans in Delaware was so strong that opposing coaches said it was a great experience for their players to play at Delaware Stadium. University of Delaware officials have emphasized this in recent years, including during the Blue Hens' recent home games against Penn State and Appalachian State, as well as in the past.
As for the mascot, the role of religion at Penn State has been the subject of much debate in the past among those who see it as a symbol of the university's religious heritage and history. He acknowledged that the best way to recognize and explore the origins of the University of Delaware mascot would be to interpret it in a way that might give too much or too little respect to the subject.
It is probably best not to speculate about what would have happened at Penn State, the University of Delaware or any other university in the United States. In the picture above you will see the Star - Spangled Banner, a symbol of the US flag, and we have a variety of roosters, but in this picture we will see the Star - Spangled Banner with the logo of Delaware State University on the left and the Pennsylvania State flag with a red and white star on the right. It is probably good not to speculate about the origin of this symbol or the role of religion in any university, let alone a university with such a long history of religious and cultural diversity.
