BALTIMORE - Pressure? Yo, when you're the quarterback for Villanova, which has always been known for moving the football, hefty expectations are pretty much part of the deal. To the surprise of nobody, fourth-year Wildcat junior John Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's Preseason Offensive Player of the Year at the annual CAA media day at M&T Bank Stadium. But as Villanova found out a year ago, projections mean absolutely zilch once you start playing. The Wildcats, the pick to win the league, started fifth in the national polls last season.

Rick Brunson promised his son that their family would no longer move once Jalen Brunson reached high school. The Brunsons had relocated seven times, finally settling in suburban Chicago in 2010, when Rick Brunson, the former Temple guard, was hired as an assistant for the Bulls. Jalen Brunson started a year later at Stevenson High, about 30 miles north of Chicago. The 6-foot-2 lefthander blossomed into the nation's top point guard, according to ESPN, and plans to make his college decision before November's early signing period.

The former Villanova home of ex-Eagles coach Andy Reid has seen plenty of interest from brokers, but no buyers yet at its price tag of $2.3 million, according to listing agent Kevin Murphy of Main Line Executive Realty in Bryn Mawr. Reid, a college football star at Brigham Young University, won a Super Bowl as an assistant coach at Green Bay, then became a multimillionaire head coach of the NFL's Philadelphia franchise before leaving for Kansas City in 2013. Reid's 15-year-old, five-bedroom house at 1215 Page Terrace has been on the market for about a month, according to Murphy.
