Niagara was never approached by the Big East or the predecessor of the Atlantic 10. They are just feel good stories that have no basis in fact.

I suggest all read a history of NU written by Dr. Stranges. It is called “The Rainbow Never Fades”. NU was Immense financial pressures in the early 8os and even committing $50,000 to any league was a huge sum.

Correct, NU was in dire straights in the early to mid 80's per Dr. Strange's book.

Bonnies went down in flames against LSU. Iona played well against Bama, only losing by 10-11 points.
