DEPAUL RUMORS & GOSSIP

DePaul unanimous pick for Big East women's title

NEW YORK (AP) DePaul is the unanimous choice by the coaches to win the Big East championship. The Blue Demons have four starters returning from a team that won the conference's regular-season and tournament titles and advanced to the Sweet 16.

DePaul’s New Basketball Arena Is Coming

We have heard it for almost 2 years: The new arena for DePaul is coming. But nothing has happened. It’s been all talk and no action on breaking ground. That is, until today. DePaul officials said today that the arena will be on track for breaking ground this winter. This is the first time anyone has heard of a set time for starting the construction. Having this winter set for...

Illini football approaching DePaul basketball in lack of visibility

Don’t let the 3-1 record fool you. A win over two mid-majors (one that’s only been in FBS for three years) and a lowly FCS team doesn’t resolve anything. Last year’s Illini football team went 3-1 in the non-conference, in a much more impressive manner than this year, and yet still ended up a train wreck in league play. Looking at the 2014 Illini football winning percentage...

By retaining Oliver Purnell, DePaul admits diminished expectations

Oliver Purnell has won everywhere he’s been; except for DePaul. It’s very mysterious why that is, but after four seasons in Lincoln Park, Purnell has shown zero progress. Regress is the only movement DePaul basketball has seen under the Coach hired away from Clemson. It’s hard to understand why there is so little local media chatter right now about Oliver Purnell not being...

Make or break season for Oliver Purnell at DePaul?

Oliver Purnell has a long way to go to turn around DePaul basketball. And given the lack of progress he’s shown, you have to wonder how much time he really has to do that. This is year four of Oliver Purnell’s seven year deal. And in order for him to make it all the way to the end, DePaul will have to show us something much more than they have in the three year Oliver Purnell...
