"Mike Tranghese isn't the kind of guy who beats around the bush. He usually says what's on his mind and then lets the chips fall where they may." So starts todays piece by Kevin McNamara in today's ProJo concerning the Big East/ACC flap. It looks like Tranghese puts the blame squarley on the shoulders of the ACC presidents and isn't too pleased with what he views as their unethical behavior in poaching schools from another conference. As has been stated, no matter if the Big East staves off the raid or not, Providence College had better get used to the idea of playing in a mid-major conference for men's basketball. The days of the Friars in the Big East as we know it are over. They don't have enough money, simple as that.
