Congratulations to one of the finest players in Villanova history.

"(Providence coaches) would tell us to have a good time but be careful and stay out of trouble. They knew we were going to show him some love with a female."He also implied that this wasn't a new phenomenon:
"I was doing what they did to me when I was in the recruiting process," said Peterson. "Every time a recruit visits, the coaches would ask us if we can take them out and show them a good time."Peterson on the willingness of one particular jersey chaser to help the cause:
That's exactly what Peterson did. He called a female who the Providence players called numerous times to perform oral sex on recruits. According to Peterson, "She always says that's her hobby. That's what she likes to do. She wants to be a porn star."I'd like to say that I'm surprised by Peterson's revelations, but as you can see in this screen capture from a certain Spike Lee film, these types of accommodations for recruits are nothing new.
How many recruits does Peterson recall her performing oral sex on? "Let's just say she's in double figures."

|With Hitler at Berlin in 1935|
|I knew I had seen Oliver Luck somewhere, but I couldn't pinpoint it, but after doing some Google images sleuthing, I finally figured out where I had seen him. Above is the finest evidence of Oliver Luck's affiliation with Hitler. Note that he was in charge of TWO German NFL Europe teams, so he's obviously a Nazi.|
"There are two sort of questions I think that people have," Luck said. "One is really what are the facilities that Villanova is able to use and how do those fit into the Big East with what we have now with our football schools. Are those really at a level that are BCS, automatic qualifier appropriate for a conference like ours? I think that's the first question and obviously the conference didn't feel quite comfortable with all the information regarding what I would call the infrastructure question."I would like to point out to Oliver Luck that the ACC, (a conference that I'm sure WVU would jump at the opportunity to join if invited,) has two stadiums with capacities of less than 35,000, (Duke and Wake Forest,) and the SEC, (which Luck would blow his load if he was invited to,) has one with a capacity of less than 40,000, (Vanderbilt,) and none of these conference's statuses as an automatic qualifier are in doubt. The fact is that PPL should be viewed as an asset, because it would instantly become the stadium in the conference with the nicest amenities, and as the former GM of the Houston Dynamo, Oliver Luck should know that these soccer stadiums are first class facilities, and a 30,000 seat all-seater PPL park will likely be one of the conference's nicest stadiums.
"When we talk about adding a 10th member, the question is what does that 10th member bring and what are the other options, quite honestly," Luck continued. "It's sort of like buying a car, you don't go and just look at one model. You look around and say what are the different options, what are the different prices, and what are the plusses and minuses? I think a lot of schools were interested in having a better sense of what other possibilities would be out there."This is funny because

Getting down to specifics:
"There are some Big East schools that aren’t bubbling with enthusiasm over the prospect of Villanova entering the Big East. Rutgers, Pittsburgh and West Virginia are allegedly the schools in the way. There have been reported concerns about how a small school like Villanova, relatively speaking to West Virginia, Rutgers and Pitt, actually benefits the league. But another more serious underlying issue is that Villanova will be tapping into some of the fertile high school recruiting grounds in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and the Delaware Valley area that currently being mined by that trio of Big East schools."
Pottsgrove High School standout Terrell Chestnut is a classic example. The prized senior defensive back originally gave a verbal commitment to Pittsburgh, but when the school fired football coach Dave Wannstedt, Chestnut changed his mind. Once it was made public Chestnut was available again, Villanova showed interest, but West Virginia, Chestnut’s second choice originally, won out this time.So as you can see through reading that article, Villanova was the one being pursued, not the other way around, and because of that it's pretty easy to draw the conclusion that the Big East should garner at least the majority of the blame. Something that is encouraging about this article is the fact that with very few exceptions, the Philly media is firmly in Villanova's corner.
"Our stance on this matter has always been the same," Sakiewicz said. "We plan on using this facility for multiple events and welcome the opportunity to host Villanova. We think they are a class organization, and [athletic director] Vince Nicastro is awesome. But it is a soccer stadium first, and we would like to ensure that the integrity of that [natural grass] pitch stays intact."Based on that quote, it appears that the comments that fans of the obstructionist schools are making on the internet about Villanova's lack of communication with The Union about the use of the stadium are entirely baseless. It also would appear that Villanova has in fact been engaged in ongoing dialogue with The Union. I'm hoping for a positive outcome once the dissenters get off their respective high horses, and they realize that Villanova is a better option than inviting (insert Conference USA team here) to the conference to play football (or possibly all sports).
"The Big East Conference and Villanova University have worked closely with each other over the past several months regarding potential football membership," Marinatto said in the statement. "We will continue with our due diligence process and work with Villanova to continue to share relevant information and materials. The Big East Conference obviously very much values its long-standing relationship with Villanova and we are committed to continuing to work with them on this matter in an open and forthright manner. Until there is additional information to report, the conference plans no further comment."Now if the conference did this because it didn't want to sound like it was Bush League, their behavior in the past couple days proves that they are exactly that. Now I'll refer to The Wedding Singer for any further comment on the situation:
"I beat cancer twice and cancer never made the mistake of bringing me a beer that was warm."
Is it hot in here or is it just me? Seriously though, you have to feel for Moe a little bit here, kind of getting kicked when he's down. The thought process was probably something like this:
CBS intern putting together clips for the video: "Oh 'Nova was absolutely embarrassing for the second half of the season? I know, let's show the one shinning moment where their players were crying. That'll help ease the pain."
I think this is probably how all of us will feel if football doesn't get upgraded. "What's that? Our highly over-rated basketball team lost 8 out of their last 10 games, including their last 6 straight and a first round exit against George Mason? Oh, and our football is still in the FCS. Fuck." Anyways, maybe something good will come out of this. Maybe this will motivate next year's team to make sure none of them end up feeling like poor Moe did last night. I like the looks of that. Hopefully they will #BALL for a few more games next year.
