According to a source within the Big East Conference, Villanova's board of trustees will not hold an anticipated Tuesday vote on whether to move up to Division I-A and join the Big East for football because the conference's football members are not ready to sign off on the Wildcats' plans. The chief sticking point, according to the source, is Villanova's plan to use PPL Park in Chester, the 18,500-seat home of the Philadelphia Union, as its primary venue.

TODD ROSS and Sunny Rinko are furious at Food Network's "Sweet Genius" contestant Chad Durkin over the old bake- and-switch. Durkin was to bake, decorate and deliver a cake for their wedding Saturday at the Brandywine Museum in Chadds Ford, but on Tuesday he informed the couple that his reality-TV shooting would render him unable to fulfill the obligations. He told Ross on Wednesday that Bredenbeck's in Chestnut Hill would be making the cake. Ross, who works in insurance in Dallas and is a Swarthmore native and nursing student, is sure Bredenbeck's will do a fine job, but that isn't what he paid for. The couple paid Durkin's CAD Culinary Design $700 in advance, and was to pay him another $700 on Saturday.
