Earlham College might be the most pitiful college football team to ever exist.

Saturday Tradition wrote the following about their disgraceful program:

Earlham College, a Division III program located in Richmond, Indiana, lost its 50th straight game on Saturday, falling 63-0 to Anderson. The Quakers are now 0-6 on the season.

The team’s last win came on Oct. 26, 2013 when it defeated Anderson 21-20. That year, the Quakers finished 2-8, also beating Kenyon College. Basically, it’s been five years since Earlham last won a football game.

The 50-game losing streak ties the NCAA Division III record, previously set by Macalaster College from 1974-1980.

50 games in a row? Is that a joke? How does anybody involved with this program hold their head high. You almost have to try in order to lose 50 games in a row. Honestly, that’s almost more impressive than actually going 50-0. I would pay an absurd amount of money to watch this team play Alabama. What do we think the score of that game would be? 150-0? Hell, Alabama might hit 200. (RELATED: Latest AP College Football Poll Has Many Shakeups. Number Two Might Surprise You)

It’s also DIII football. These kids are getting lit up, and not a single one of them is on scholarship. Why are they even out there? I’d be running for the exit. If I’m not getting paid, then I damn sure am not putting my body on the line.

Do yourself a favor, men. Hang it up. You’re a national laughing stock, and you’re doing it for free.
