The BIG EAST will do fine...what will be interesting will be which will draw better and have more TV Viewer interest....the league with Syracuse, Notre Dame, Pitt, Louisville, Duke and UNC or the league with Marquette, Georgetown, Saint John's, Xavier and Nova...I'm not sayn...juz sayn....05-nono

1. It's St. John's not Saint John's. We shared a league for almost a decade, you should know better.

2. Where was this "TV interest" when all the ACC posters were talking about how they could take the Garden if they wanted it. Looks like they wanted it but couldn't get it. Not sayin', just sayin'.

St. is an abbreviation for Saint. As a St. John's alum you should know this. So you were correcting him for nothing. Whenever you hear people speaking about the school, they say Saint John's. The abbreviation isn't an official thing, it's just easier to spell. New Yorkers are notoriously lazy about such things. Either way is technically correct.

You keep harping on this one point trying to stir things up. But I recall most ACC fans saying that if the Acc were willing to go into MSG full time, they could eventually get MSG. You now full well that the ACC is not willing to go anywhere full time except Greensboro, and even that's not written in stone anymore. But if the Acc were willing to commit to a good number of years, then MSG would have a choice of UNC, Duke, Louisville, Syracuse, ND and Pitt as opposed to Nova, St Johns, Marquette, Providence, Butler and Seton Hall. Its a no brainer, and the BE is very fortunate, that the ACC wont commit to such a deal.

No it's not correct. Saint John's is a school in minnesota. We only go by St. John's. We are not lazy it's the name of our school. It is not "technically correct".

Okay, then explain how they get out of their contract with the Big East that runs until 2026? Is it worth it to get your balls sued off to sell the same amount of tickets?

Look at the bottom of your pic. St. John's. The degree is the only time they spell out Saint. Saint John's is a college in Minnesota well known for their long time coach who has like 700 wins or some such #.

It's St. John's and any former BE member should know that. The fact people don't just shows their own ignorance.

Obvious to anyone that ever received a diploma, the bottom of the pic is a frame. The diploma itself refers to the school as "Saint John's University", and it does so twice, both in the main salutation and in referring to "The Trustees of Saint John's University New York".

So you're telling me that your diploma, if you have one, has the wrong school on it?

I don't understand your answer.

Does your diploma have "Saint John's University" on it, or does it have "St. John's University" on it?

Because the one above clearly has "Saint John's" as does a similar example sold in your school's official store.
