Someone was wondering how long Villanova had to join the BE in fb. That deadline passed. Actually UConn missed it, but they were in the process of getting state support so they got an extension. Has Villanova changed their mind? That doesn't seem likely either. MT's comments sounded like a fb ONLY member.

.Providence is a division 3 school athletically with a division 1A bb and hockey team.


Just for the record, Providence is NOT a Division III school in its other sports.

In addition to its outstanding basketball & hockey programs, Providence has a long history of turning out superb runners. Their Men's Cross Country team, for example, has finished first or second in The Big East 6 times in the past ten years, including 4 team championships. Their Women's Cross Country team has finished first or second in The Big East 7 times in the past 10 years, including 3 team championships.

Tigershark, I get your point about Providence & to some extent it is well taken. I was very upset when they dropped baseball - the same year they won the Big East championship!! >:(

The baseball debacle makes 2 points quite clear. First, when they make a commitment to compete, they do so quite well - as they have also done in baketball, hockey, cross country, track & field, and to a lesser extent in a number of other sports. The second point is that Title IX has forced them to make some difficult choices.

Re your questions, you can research those answers as easily as I can. I won't debate the issue. Right now The Big East values them as a member & they provide a small college environment for athletes who prefer that environment but who still want to compete at the highest levels - much the way that Wake Forest does in the ACC. If you don't value their membership, that's fine & you're entitled to your opinion. I felt the need to be your fact checker because frankly some of the facts you presented were simply not true as stated.
