I think BC should be higher on that list in reality. I've lived around Boston for my entire life and have only known 2 non-alum BC fans. It's the combination of a lack of interest in college sports in the area and the fact that people really find BC to be arrogant and annoying.
Maybe if they were successful it would be different but they're not. They caught lightning in a bottle with Doug Flutie in the 80's and haven't done anything since. They fired their most successful recent football coach for daring to interview with the NFL and fired their most successful basketball coach of all time for no apparant reason. They are just the worst.
EDIT: I should also mention that if you do care about college sports in this area you were likely a Big East hoops fan and hold a grudge against BC for single-handidly starting its demise to go play schools below the Mason Dixon line. Did I mention I don't like BC?

Providence at 100/1 with the best point guard in the nation is attractive.

If I remember correctly, Countess was recruited by and commited to Rich Rod and then reaffirmed his commitment to Hoke? Is he the last player with a Rich Rod connection on the roster?

I'm a big Providence College hoops fan. I'm very excited about this series and thrilled that it honors the memory of the legendary Dave Gavitt, former PC coach and founder of the Big East.
I love the new incarnation of the Big East. I don't miss any of the schools that have defected. The Friars have a much better chance to compete in a conference with smaller, like-minded, basketball-centric schools. It's a throwback to what the conference was originally supposed to be about.
I think the series will be beneficial for both conferences but probably more so for the Big East. Out of conference schedules and performance are huge for a 10 team league. Hopefully in the years to come Michigan will make a trip out to Providence to play on Dave Gavitt Court. I would definitely be in attendence.

I love the 30 minute Gallon documentary and how it's the "official" Jeremy Gallon documentary. Don't be fooled by imitations.

Really well done. Made me feel more feelings than I was prepared for on a Tuesday morning.

Very important cause. My dad passed away of leukemia in 2011. He had a bone marrow transplant from a donor in Germany that they thought was successful at first but his cancer returned. I'll never forget the kindness of that stranger to give my dad a chance at life so it was an easy choice for me to join Be The Match. It's also a great thing to donate blood and platelets.

In New England we always thought Pete was a happy-go-lucky idiot. Turns out he's stupid like a fox.
|1 year 10 weeks ago||Brady spent the AFC||
Brady spent the AFC Championship game last year forcing balls to Austin Collie because he was the only one he trusted at that point. I think Gallon is gonna have a great shot to not only make the Pats but thrive. I see them entrusting him with return duties right away to reduce wear and tear on Edelman.
|1 year 12 weeks ago||People here and around the||
People here and around the country forget what originally made the Big East great. The lack of football and the ability to keep northeastern city kids local caused its original success in the 80's. The conference became a national laughing stock because of what happened with its football programs but that was never supposed to be the emphasis. Now they have a chance to remake themselves in the image that the great Dave Gavitt always had in mind. I believe they will more than hold their own against the B1G. Some of the opinions on this thread are shortsighted and don't show a solid understanding of the history of the sport or where it's headed.
Edit: For context I should add that I'm a die hard Providence fan.

Michigan has a great future in lacrosse but tomorrow belongs to my Fairfield Stags. Sorry guys. It's the one sport where we approach competency.

I'm very confused by the examples you gave of good vs. bad mojo.

BC is not a major program. They are in a major conference though.
|1 year 18 weeks ago||Mediocre? The winningest||
Mediocre? The winningest coach in the history of the school, 7 tournaments in 13 years, ran a clean program and moved them past their prior point shaving/gambling scandals. I hate BC but you can't say Al Skinner was mediocre.

My high school teams were the Blue Raiders so I always root for Middle Tennessee. Our logo/mascot was an eagle for some reason. MTSU went with what looks like a winged horse with a lightning bolt coming out of its mouth. Both solid choices.

Don Zimmer charged the mound in the 2003 ALCS at Fenway. I was actually at that game in a standing room only section and couldn't see anything when the crowd stood up. This kid next to me said Pedro just threw Don Zimmer to the ground and I of course didn't believe him until my phone started blowing up.

My buddy and I are Red Sox fans and were walking back to our cars after seeing the Sox beat the Yankees in a regular season game in 2002 at Yankee Stadium. This one dude who was with a few of his friends was walking beside us and kept chanting "1918" over and over and over again. My friend eventually said something harmless like "scoreboard" but that was all this guy needed. He got inches away from my friend. He wanted a fight but when it was clear my friend wasn't going to swing at him he spit all over his face. We were in absolute shock. I've heard the new Yankee Stadium is a nice, family friendly place but it was a different atmosphere not too long ago. I'll never forget that moment under the Major Deegan Expressway. It was around then that I decided I didn't need to keep going to the South Bronx.

That would explain why most seating charts and pictures of the stadium don't have Sections 1-8 which is where I'm sitting. I believe they are 2nd level in the endzone on either side of the scoreboard.
