AT WEDNESDAY'S news conference welcoming Temple back into the Big East, commissioner John Marinatto gave every indication that Villanova might join the conference for football at some point. At the very least, the Big East is on record as trying to help position the program for that possibility.
Doesn't mean it will happen, only that it could.
Villanova's trustees were poised to vote last April to move up from the Football Championship Subdivision to the BCS and play football in the conference it's called home for almost everything else for 3 decades. The Big East backed off at the last moment, then the landscape changed. Dramatically. The changes might not be over.
