While the amazing season of Villanova quarterback John Robertson seems to get more impressive by the week, one of his teammates is enjoying a Robertson-like year on the other side of the ball. While Robertson was named the Colonial Athletic Association's offensive player of the week for the third time this season after throwing for 285 yards and four touchdowns in a 41-20 win Saturday at Maine, junior linebacker Don Cherry was the CAA defensive player of the week. Not only that, but Cherry was named the co-national defensive player of the week by the Sports Network.

More than seven months after the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the search for the plane is expected to resume in the Indian Ocean this month with crews trolling 23,000 square miles. Might the kernel of a better approach be found in a pond in Phoenixville? That is where Villanova University students are tinkering with a robotic boat, a two-pontoon craft equipped with a camera, a laser, and other electronics that let the boat locate obstacles and navigate on its own. The four-foot vessel is a prototype for a 16-foot version that the students and two faculty members will enter this month in a competition in Singapore, along with partners from Florida Atlantic University.

Villanova coach Andy Talley is very clear about what Saturday's game at conference foe Maine represents. "It's a trap game," Talley said. "Without question, and that's exactly what I explained that we are up against. You are going to have to travel and play under adverse conditions against a team that is on the rise. There is going to be a lot of adversity. We'll have to show that we are able to handle it again. " On paper it might not appear that way. The Wildcats (3-1, 1-0 Colonial Athletic Association)

VILLANOVA'S John Robertson didn't play in spring practice, after undergoing labrum surgery in early January on his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Turns out it could have been the best thing that ever happened to him. All he was allowed to do was throw in seven-on-seven drills. There was no running, for someone who'd gained 1,021 yards on the ground as a redshirt freshman and 1,405 last season, when it seemed as if all of his receivers went down with injuries and he pretty much became the offense.

PENN HAS BEEN in this spot before. That's what can happen when you open up at least 2 weeks after everyone else each year and Villanova is your annual second obstacle. So the Quakers have good reason why they haven't started 2-0 since 2003, when they put together their third unbeaten season under Al Bagnoli. It's not an excuse, merely reality. Now, for the third time in 4 years and sixth in the last 8, they are 0-2. Even though they did lead by 12 points in the fourth quarter in their opener at Jacksonville, which had already played twice.

There is no sentimentality in football, which is why Penn coach Al Bagnoli didn't receive a fitting send-off in his final game against his good friend, Villanova coach Andy Talley. The Wildcats scored on their first five possessions, had their all-American-candidate quarterback out of the game at halftime, and beat the Quakers, 41-7, Saturday before 12,353 fans at Franklin Field. Bagnoli's teams are good against most others - he has won nine outright Ivy League titles during his 23 seasons.
