Coming to DePaul freshman year I was most excited to attend College sporting events. When I started asking around about our football team, since I had never heard much about it, I was instantly shot down with the response, “DePaul doesn’t have a football team!” I thought to myself how can DePaul University a well known college in Chicago, surrounded by suburbs of all-state football teams and players, not have a football team?
I think that the students at DePaul University are being deprived from something that other colleges get to enjoy and embrace. I am always tempted to look at my friends Facebook albums that go to Universities that have a college football team. I feel a little jealous that we have to miss out on tailgating, pep rallies, rival games, team spirit, and all the rest that comes along with having a football team. Where is the school spirit? Maybe we would have some more if DePaul considered developing a football team.
