Brandon Austin, a prized recruit from Imhotep Charter, has been suspended indefinitely from the Providence men's basketball team along with a teammate for what the college termed "not upholding their responsibilities as student-athletes. " Austin and fellow freshman Rodney Bullock were suspended from game action with the team, the school announced Wednesday. "We hold our student-athletes to very high standards," Providence coach Ed Cooley said in a statement. "We are disappointed in some of the choices that Brandon and Rodney have made.

Bill McGovern remembers everything about the moment he learned Mark Herzlich might die. It was the spring of 2009. He had started driving away from a Staten Island high school, one more stop in a string of recruiting visits for Boston College's football program. He noticed a voice-mail message on his cellphone. It was from Herzlich's father, Sandy. McGovern was Boston College's defensive coordinator and linebackers coach then, and his best inside linebacker - hell, the best player on the team - was Herzlich, a native of Wayne, a graduate of Conestoga High School, a certain first-round selection in the 2010 NFL draft.

Irvin Charles ran a drag route across the middle, caught a short pass, stiff-armed a defender, and raced 70 yards down the right sideline. "Who is that?" a Camden assistant coach wondered aloud during the early-September scrimmage at Paul VI. Charles might have been a bit of an unknown in South Jersey football circles at the beginning of this season. But the 6-foot-4, 205-pound junior at Paul VI has rapidly become one of the area's top wide receivers and most sought-after college recruits.

After getting a six-game taste of being Central Bucks West's starting quarterback as a sophomore, John Fitz served mostly in a backup role last season. "It was disappointing," Fitz said. "But the good thing about it was, it made me work and practice harder. It motivated me. " Happily back under center, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior has sparked C.B. West to a surprising 5-1 start. The Bucks have won five straight, including three in Suburban One League Continental Conference action, since an opening loss to Upper Dublin.

When: Saturday at 6 p.m. Where: Jack Coffey Field, New York Records: Villanova, 0-1; Fordham, 1-0. Radio: WIP-AM (610) Coaches: Villanova, Andy Talley (29th season, 198-121-1; overall 34th season, 226-139-2); Fordham, Joe Moorhead (2d season, 7-5). Series: Villanova leads, 20-4-3. Last time: Villanova won, 28-13, last season at home. Three Things to Watch Villanova committed four turnovers in last week's opening 24-14 loss to Boston College. Quarterback John Robertson, who threw two interceptions, seemed to be forcing the action instead of letting things develop, and he will need to make better decisions instead of always looking to run the ball.

Even though this isn't a Colonial Athletic Association game, Villanova football coach Andy Talley left no doubt about the importance of the nonconference matchup at Fordham at 6 p.m. Saturday. "This is a must-win game," Talley said. That wasn't just coach-speak. The Wildcats are coming off an impressive performance in Saturday's 24-14 loss at Boston College. That won't hurt Villanova in the minds of the Football Championship Subdivision playoff committee members. Yet losing to an FCS team such as Fordham would be a major setback for a Villanova team that is ranked No. 8 by the Sports Network and has national title aspirations.

IT'S ONLY ONE loss, to an FBS program. But for Villanova, what hurts even more than knowing that you had a chance to double a seven-point lead over host Boston College from the 1-yard line just before halftime and couldn't, is the knowledge that now you have to play a pretty decent Fordham team on the road at night without as many as half your defensive starters. That's what can happen, especially at the FCS level, where depth is always a concern. And that's what the Wildcats, who dropped only from fifth to ninth in the rankings, have to deal with.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Villanova was genuinely angry and disappointed even though the Wildcats made Saturday's opening 24-14 loss at Boston College much more competitive than many figured. The players felt there was no sense feeling good about playing well against an Atlantic Coast Conference team, albeit, one that went 2-10 last season. No, the Wildcats felt they let one get away, although Boston College had a lot to do with it. Boston College was a totally different team after trailing 14-7 at halftime, but Villanova quarterback John Robertson wasn't conceding anything.

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - It was a game of deception, hard hitting, and most of all determination from Villanova to show it belonged on the same field as its Atlantic Coast Conference counterpart. For well over a half, the Wildcats stood toe-to-toe with Boston College. But the Eagles flexed their Football Bowl Subdivision muscles for much of the final two quarters and defeated Villanova, 24-14, on Saturday before 30,922 at Alumni Stadium. It was the third year in a row that first-year Boston College coach Steve Addazio opened his season with a win over Villanova, but this one was much more difficult than the two he won at Temple by a combined 83-17 score.
