Mike Rice Jr. Gets Super Promotion

Back in March, before the NCAA Tournament began, we speculated that Robert Morris head coach Mike Rice Jr., of our beloved Northeast Conference, would be Fordham's ideal head-coaching candidate. Then Robert Morris went and almost beat Villanova in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, and all of a sudden, Mike Rice Jr. is being upgraded to the Big East. Rutgers is likely to announce Rice's hiring this week, and they're hoping he'll be a stabilizing influence for a program that's fallen into chaos. We hope he does well, but we have to say: The Northeast Conference to the Big East is an awfully large leap.
