Leading up to the opening game of the Villanova football season on August 31 against Boston College, Fact on Villanova Sports will be counting down the days between now and the beginning of the football season using the jersey numbers of Villanova football players of the past. For as many numbers as possible, effort will be taken to introduce players from the current team, with the exception of "important" players from the past.a Also, it's a ton of work to get pictures of all the players, so it may be incomplete. Oh well.
One of Villanova's first real impact transfers in quite some time, Bill Vogel came in at a time when the Villanova offensive line was in shambles due to the graduation of Ben Ijalana and Brant Clouser, plus the season ending injury to Chidozie Ekweozor, the presumptive starter at left tackle suffered in preseason camp. After some growing pains his first year on an offensive line that needed to replace three starters, Vogel stepped up this season and was the starting left tackle on the most potent rushing attack in the history of Villanova football.
Vogel is back for one final season of eligibility in 2013.
