Morning Cup O' Mud: Conference Realignment, Darrel Young Praise


Not known for much NFL news, Villanova got some yesterday when Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan came out with some major praise for former Villanova football star Darrel Young.

Darrel Young Could Be Fullback Of The Future For Redskins | The Nova Blog
After changing positions to provide depth behind Mike Sellars, Darrel Young is being touted for his performance by head coach Mike Shanahan.

I had always thought Young was going to be a special teamer throughout his NFL career, but it's great to see he could catch on at FB, and especially in an offense that uses the fullback so often.

Some other somewhat major, and somewhat Villanova-related news as Texas A&M called a meeting to discuss a possible conference switch amidst the realization that the Texas Longhorns Network which is being produced by ESPN could make life very difficult for them.

The Texas A&M Board of Regents has a meeting scheduled for Thursday morning and a major topic of discussion will be the University of Texas's Longhorn Network and what the impact will be to Texas high school sports.

Will this start the next round of conference re-alignment? Too early to tell, but Villanova has to keep an eye on it.

See you after The Jump for news from around the conference.
