The time has come

After 15 years of some version of Blue Demons Nation, it will be coming to a close shortly.

It was a pretty crappy run during those 15 years.

Only the champion finishes with a win.  And, you have been the champion for many of us, DePaul fans.

But, there comes a time to walk away.  Hold your head up, as you did a great job and have the admiration of many of us.
You leave a winner.

It's been great!  Even meeting you was.
I'll never forget sitting with you as we, somehow, beat Marquette for our only win.
That was a special day and, It's been a special friendship.

Thanks, Buddy

Like in life, all good things must come to an end, so too with FJ/VU's leadership of this board.  I know as a program the basketball did not match our investment into it, but FJ/VU was able to create a little community of fans here that created real bonds.  That I know, and that is something of no small value.

Bravo FJ.... a job well done.  Hopefully the Nation finds a home to reconvene if this program ever rises from the ashes.  And like the citizens of Brigadoon... we emerge from the mist and sing joyus songs in happiness.
Smart men learn from their mistakes, wise men learn from the mistakes of others.

Fresh - thanks for keeping it running for as long as you have.  Also thanks for keeping my ghost account a secret.

Hayes-Healy Superstar: Yep Coach K is squeaky clean... he's the Joe Paterno of coll.... oh yeah.

BigJayStud: JLP will have to make a decision after next season. She should extend (Purnell) by one year with a very low buyout.
