A Fan’s Reaction to the William & Mary Game

Where to begin? Villanova has lost yet again at home in ugly fashion, and I’m as confused as I was on my Political Theory midterm last week.

A Fan’s Reaction to the Penn Game

I’m going to try and put something together that I could hope rationalize a historic loss for this program.

Wildcats Lose Close One Against Richmond, 10-9

There was something strange about today’s game. Both teams didn’t look right, as if they were still sporting Halloween costumes because they just weren’t themselves.
