Villanova coach Andy Talley admitted at today's local football coaches luncheon that he's not a fan of the challenges that come with playing teams a level above his Wildcats on the Division I ladder.
But he acknowledged the value of cashing a big check after getting home, such as the one 'Nova got after visiting West Virginia last year. There was one after this year's Temple game as well, made even sweeter by the Wildcats' win over the Owls.
Check out the rest of Talley's remarks and those of other coaches from across the region in the audio player below.
