    As I have a keen interest in The College of the Holy Cross and I visited my money (I mean daughter) over their four years on St. James Hill, let me weigh in on this topic.

    There were Crusades and then there were "Crusades". The series had some that were good and some that were not so good.

    So if schools with the nickname Crusaders such as Holy Cross and Bergen Catholic High School, want to keep their name let them say it refers to the better of the Crusades.

    From DAY ONE my wife hated their name, being somewhat more politically correct than me. I had much more fun heading to the top of "The Hill" (over 70 stairs on this Arboretum award winning campus) to go inside the Gym and fantastic Hockey venue to admire the trophy from the HC Bob Cousy-Led, NCAA Men's BB Championship team, since SJU has no equivalent. The smallest school to win a major sport Division I National Championship. Renown NYT Sportswriter emeritus Dave Anderson was a classmate of Cousy back then a few years before some very prominent Tommy Heinsohn led teams.

    I think Dave Gavitt had HC on his short list for NE teams forming the Big East.
