DePaul gets robbed by the BCS

Posted on: February 20, 2008 11:16 am
 

Do you need further proof that the BCS college football system doesn't work?  Look no further than the snub job the BCS has done to my beloved Blue Demons over the past decade.

With10 seasons under its belt, the BCS has not once crowned the DePaul Blue Demons as the nation's top football team.  This is absolutely crazy when you look at the statistics.  DePaul, in the ten years under the BCS tyranny, has not lost a single conference game.  Can any of the so-called national champions under the BCS system claim the same?  Of course they can't.  Look at the teams that were allowed to play on the main stage in 2007-2008, neither even compares to the Blue Demons.  Ohio State lost two games, and didn't even make it out of their conference without a loss.  LSU?  Yeah, they had a good year, but they also lost two games - both in their little SEC conference.  How does DePaul match up?  Undefeated, yet again.  You can call LSU the national champ, if you must, but I know the truth - undefeated in conference play, undefeated overall, yet not even invited to play in a BCS Bowl.

I've heard a lot of crying about how Boise State deserved a shot in 2006-2007.  That may be true, but where is the outrage for the criminal treatment of the DePaul Blue Demon football program at the hands of the evil BCS empire?  Heck, at least Boise got to play in the Fiesta Bowl when they went undefeated.

I am outraged and think it is about time someone stood up and demanded justice out of our football championship system.  LSU might claim the BCS Championship but DePaul is the undisputed DBD Championship winner.  Deal with that, Tigers!

DePaul gets robbed by the BCS

Not sure what was funnier the blog itself or the fact that some people took it serious not knowing that Depaul doesn't have a team.

Anyways to our real team, What do you think of the new Big East format of every team making the tournament? I think it takes the importance out of the regular season especially when you usually watch a 5-11 team fighting for that last spot. Also do you think Wainwright will be able to turn this around or is it time to start looking elsewhere?  I love Wainwright's character and personality off the court but I'm a little disappointed that with our move to the Big East we still haven't been able to recruit as well as I'd hoped. Koshwal and Tucker will hopefully keep us competitive but there isn't much else to like about this group (its pretty young and thin) in a deep Big East conference.

DePaul gets robbed by the BCS

oh, no wonder I couldn't find any results for them then, your article seemed to be serious to me since I didn't know that depaul didn't have a team, just sounded like all the other BCS complainers that there are out there, spouting off about something they don't understand.

jwb - it was a satire piece.  DePaul does not have a football team - not even a Division 3 team.  That is why they are undefeated, and why this was intended to be funny.

detbluedemon, grow up, this wesite doesn't even have any search results for depaul, that shows how irrelevant you are, outside of fans of tiny schools you are the only person that thinks they got robbed. Tell me what conference you are in, and who you have beaten, if I even recognize one of those teams I might give you a little respect, still, until you show me they have beaten someone respectable your team could not hang with any serious powerhouses or even lower ranked teams in college football.

I hate it when I have to watch poker instead of fishing. . .
