The biggest Wildcat supporters can now buy this "Fan Pack" from the official Villanova University Bookstore.

The Wincraft Inc.® Villanova University Wildcats Fan Pack includes...

  • Villanova button
  • Villanova bumper sticker
  • Georgetown pennant
  • How to burn a Hoyas pennant manual

Seriously, how does this get past anyone?

First, someone [presumably] at Follett Higher Education Group (who the OFFICIAL VILLANOVA BOOKSTORE has outsourced the site to) was the first to make this colossal mistake.

Whether it is a photoshop or a photo of physical items SOMEBODY took a button with a Navy & Light Blue V on it, a bumper sticker with a Navy & Light Blue V as well as VILLANOVA on it, and combined it with a Navy Blue & Gray pennant that displays a huge [and ugly] G on it, plus HOYAS.

OK, so maybe they're not a sports fan and they don't know what a Hoya is- that's OK, because no one actually does. We can give you a pass on that.

But the G? The drastic change in color palettes? No excuse to common sense there.

The next assumption is that someone at the Villanova University Bookstore has a final approval of what is posted on the site. How does this get past them?

We can sort of get past Old Navy confusing Virginia and Villanova. However...

THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE
