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.
How many players have you ever heard of that broke their hand in the first half of a football game, got it taped up, then played in the second half with that arrangement? Well, that is exactly what Tim Kukucka did in the 2009 FCS National Championship game against Montana.
