839...
« on: December 18, 2016, 07:48:17 AM »
As of tomorrow, it will have been 839 weeks since DePaul was last ranked in the AP Top 25.

To put that into perspective;

-Top song was Destiny Child's Independent Women Part I
-Eli Cain was four years old.
-The Bears starting QB was Shane Matthews and starting RB was James Allen.
-Alpo Suhonen was the Blackhawks head coach.


Schools who have been ranked in the AP top 25 more recently than DePaul includes;
Hawaii
Ball State
Pacific
Winthrop
Kent State
Portland

It was the 2000 season, 1 week in.

Under JLP, DePaul men's basketball has never been ranked in the top 25. Let that sink in.

I honestly didn't know if this was going to be a thread about the attendance last night or something else.

I don't think we ever actually cracked the top 25 when we had Q Rich either.   We beat #9 Florida and were about to be ranked but then lost to UAB on Saturday. 

So considering the fact that we were WAY overrated in 2000-2001 and shouldn't have been ranked anyways.... its really even longer that we were ranked and deserved it.   

We ended up like 26th or 27th in 04 but never cracked top 25.   

Quite a run for this program.

DePaul was ranked when DePaul had Quentin in 1999-2000. They got as high as 18th, but fell out in late January.

Interesting... I didn't remember being ranked that year.   I just remember blowing the chance to be ranked when we lost to UAB.  Must have been to get back into the rankings then.
