The Sun's Arizin: Big East's cost-of-attendance stipends are being released

YOU get a check! YOU get a check! EVERYONE GETS A CHECK!

TGIF, 'Nova Nation! I'm not exactly sure why this post didn't schedule, but whatever! Interesting to see that some private schools are releasing their cost of attendance stipends to the media. I'd be surprised if we see it from Villanova, but if the range is anywhere from $1,800 to $2,600, I'd say that feels about right as far as spending money goes in college.

And now, the "news."
