Providence Gets a Look: There is no blog on SB Nation that exclusively covers Providence College sports. However, the St. John's site Rumble in the Garden is looking at what Big East teams will be bringing to the table in 2011-2012. Providence was recently featured. The prediction is that, due to the personnel no longer with the Friars that, Providence will have to play slower and focus more on defense.

Not Big East Related...But: Bob Bradley was finally canned as the head coach of the U.S. Men's National Team. Juergen Klinsmann was almost immediately hired as his replacement. Needless to say there was great joy at BECB headquarters.
