Morning Cup O' Mud: It's Almost Football Season!

Happy August! And that means that while it's still the dog days of summer and I'm still a masochist by rooting for the Mets, it's also almost football season. VUPowerhouse (if you aren't following them on YouTube, you should be) just posted their first summer recap for the football team.

In other Villanova football news, both Brant Clouser and Terence Thomas signed NFL contracts over the weekend. Clouser signed with the New York Giants, while Thomas signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. Both will fight it out for roster spots during camp.

Ben Ijalana, drafted by the Colts in the second round of this year's draft, also signed his rookie contract.

More news from around the conference after The Jump.
