I was recently thinking about DePaul Day. I am relatively new to this site, but it didn't exactly take me very long to figure out about it and what it was. But my question is: Does it cause bad karma?
Louisville has followed up their last 4 DePaul Days with a loss. 3 of those 4 losses were on the road, which is where Louisville will be going after this years DePaul Day.
Those losses are as follows:
DePaul Day 2010 - Louisville follows up a 68-59 win on DePaul Day with a 70-60 home loss to Georgetown, a game in which the Cards let an early 11-point advantage slip away from them.
DePaul Day 2011 - Louisville follows up a less than stellar 61-57 win on DePaul Day with a frustrating 89-79 overtime loss at Notre Dame, the game that made Digger Phelps one of Card Chronicle's most hated people (Or did people here hate him even before that?)
DePaul Day 2012 Part I - Louisville, which at this point, was already in free-fall mode after starting 12-0 and rising to #4 in the country, follows up a 76-59 win on the first DePaul Day of 2012 with a 74-63 loss at Marquette, a game in which U of L led 18-2 in the first half.
DePaul Day 2012 Part II - Louisville goes on the road and survives the Blue Demons in a 90-82 overtime victory, but, karma supposedly strikes once more, as Louisville goes back on the road that next Thursday and shoots a dismal 1-of-14 from 3-point range and gives up ELEVEN threes in a 60-56 loss at Cincinnati.
Should these losses be considered coincidental, or could it be bad karma?
