I must admit this is my first time using a FanPost, so I am not sure if I am using what it has been intended for.
As discussed here previously, Vince Nicastro presented "The Future of Villanova Athletics" during Reunion Weekend in 2012. I just received an e-mail indicating that the AD is embarking on a road show (similar to what Father Peter has done previously) with the same title. I am guessing this is due to the conference changes since the previous presentation in June.
The Philadelphia event will be February 21 at Xfinity Live. Probably because there will be food involved, they are requesting $20 to attend (10% going to the Athletics Department).
Given the continued struggles of the program and the uneasiness of the idea of the new conference, I am sure this will be an interesting discussion (although I will likely not be attending - I was at the first one in June). I'd be curious if anyone here plans to attend and represent the "restless" natives.
P.S. It looks like the Wells Fargo Center has raised the cost of parking again to $20. A better reason to park in Center City or take Regional Rail, followed by the Broad Street Subway.
