The Big East's Cruel Joke on Villanova

You have to feel bad for Villanova fans this week.

I'm talking about the delay of a much-anticipated decision by Villanova to vote on joining the Big East in football.

After exploring, fundraising, lining up plans and generally raising their fans expectations to BCS levels, Villanova has seen its plan shot down by the same body that seemed to be begging them nine months ago to join up as an all-sports member. (more)

Senior QB Chris Lum has found himself in a very unfamiliar place this spring - the unquestioned starter as signalcaller.

It's been a long road for Lum, who competed hard for the position against QB J.B. Clark, the quarterback that broke Lafayette's four game winning streak.

As a freshman, he was MVP of the scout team.  As a sophomore, he worked his way to backup, and when Clark struggled, Lum came in.  And last spring, he was faced with an open tryout with the senior Clark for the starting nod.

Now, he's probably the one position on the field where he's the unquestioned starter. And with targets like senior WR Jake Drwal and junior WR Ryan Spadola to throw to, he's looking to this spring to allow him to have a breakout senior year. (more)
