By Anna Jankowski & Ethan Shea

"Curious Cat Banner"

Happy Thursday, Wildcats! The Curious Cat is back for another week of hard-hitting questions and impromptu interviews. This week’s installment is all about the weekend’s big game. The question is: “Who is your dream halftime performer?” We asked a handful of Falvey patrons to answer this question, and with the Grammy Awards fresh in everyone’s minds, we got some great responses!

TBT: Brian Westbrook Leaps Into the Villanova Record Books

For our Throwback Thursday, we honor Brian Westbrook ’02. It has been 20 years since Villanova played the above nailbiter against James Madison University, and has also been almost two decades since Villanova legend Brian Westbrook suited up for the Wildcats. Westbrook is arguably one of the most successful players in Villanova history running and catching 9,512 all-purpose yards, an NCAA record.

As a professional, he enjoyed a seven-year stint with the Eagles earning him a spot in the team’s hall of fame.

#TBT Comeback ‘Cats: By Popular Demand, Football Returns to Villanova

In 1984, Villanova Football made its triumphant return to campus.

A constant at the University since 1894, football was not played at Villanova for three seasons, until alumni and students rallied to revive the Wildcat gridders. The effort even included a benefit at the Philadelphia Academy of Music with legendary comedian Bob Hope!

During this first season, football cheerleaders tossed this palm-size football (now in the University Archives) to the home crowd. The team played at the Division III level and featured a shortened five-game schedule, going undefeated. New Head Coach Andy Talley would helm the team for 230 wins over 37 seasons and send many players to the NFL, including Philadelphia Eagles great Brian Westbrook.
