I on case no one saw the tweets or the front page: http://www.d3sports.com/notables/2018/09/benedictine-to-return-to-d3

From the article:
Quote
. Michael Brophy, who was president of Benedictine University for the past two years, left unexpectedly in August,

No doubt another college president with delusions that moving from D3 to D2 would somehow solve all that ails the school.  Buh-bye.

From what I've been learning .. not make any expectations necessarily based on his departure. It isn't that cut and dry.

Whenever you only give one day's notice of leaving a leadership position (and leaving a school in the lurch in the process because there is zero time for an orderly transition), there's got to be more to it than was said here.

Good find.

Good point, Ron.

Yes ... I am gathering there is more probably to it ... but nothing I have gathered has been pointing to this DII decision.
