Sacred Heart is a weak school academically. The only thing they bring to the table is a football team. If the PL ever gets that desperate for another football member, they’d be better off adding a football-only member like Duquesne (assuming Villanova is not available). Adding an 11th all-sports member would not produce any positive effect – unless it was William and Mary, which is not likely to happen. Even then, every addition makes it that much harder for every PL member to get to the NCAA’s in every sport. No reason to add a bad academic school that brings nothing to the table.
