Hey Dr. Paul Rosier, go eat shit


Nobody on the Villanova internet is a bigger critic of the Big Five than me. I don't love the fact that Villanova has to limit itself by facing a fixed slate of four teams every year, but it's a reality that I'm willing to accept.

You know what I'm not willing to accept? Political correctness run amok, like that advocated by Villanova history department chair Paul Rosier, who suggests that Villanova and SJU (PA) should drop the "Holy War" nickname for their rivalry.

Says Rosier:
"Certainly Villanova is tackling bigger issues. But war and poverty and abuse of women are all tied to violence, and the way violence can become acceptable in language - when it is normalized, and young fans hear it so casually, I think it sends the wrong message."

Get over it, dude.
