Grand Canyon University joins the W.A.C.
Check out the story of this fine institution of higher learning: http://deadspin.com/5963972/grand-ca...on-i-athletics
The bulk of its business is in correspondence learning. The school boasts a 24% graduation rate and has been sued by the Department of Education.
From Deadspin:Why would the WAC allow the GCU Antelopes—"'Lopes" to their friends—into its conference? Desperation, most likely. The WAC has been decimated by conference realignment, dropping out of football entirely. So what's not to like about a university that boasts a massive student body and spent $9.5 million on its athletics programs last year?
