How popular are sports at Villanova University?
"Sports" at Villanova means "Wildcat basketball," and THAT is very popular indeed. It's a Division I program with a Division I fanbase, and the 'Nova Nation expect Villanova to make it to the NCAA tourney every year. Football is also popular, although as it is a Division I-AA program, it does not get the same resources or general student vibe as the men's basketball team does. Intermural sports are also popular on campus, for those who want to participate without the weight of a university student body's expectations on them.
