No Looking Back

ht-laughable
Last week we rankled an Associate Commissioner of the Big East Conference by suggesting that Heps had surpassed his conference for Eastern supremacy. He called such a notion “laughable.”

Though he has since scrubbed his Twitter feed clean of his assertions, one of the things that he’d discovered was that Heps had out-pointed the 13-team Big East at each of the last NCAA track & field championship — indoor and outdoor. And at those two meets, the Ivy League had five national champions — five more than the Big East.

As the Big East is slated to divide for good in little more than a month, leaving the Ivy League as the undisputed power of the Northeast, we wanted to take a look at where Heps stands nationally, based on entrants to the NCAA Champs in Eugene, Ore.
