The backstory to the Villanova victory revolves around the sacrifice of their former coach Rollie Massimino and the tale of John Du Pont, heir to the Du Pont family fortune, whose name bestowed the original Wildcats Pavilion – until he was arrested & died in prison, the only member of the Forbes 400 richest Americans ever to be convicted of murder. On 1/26/96 at Foxcatcher Farm, his private estate, Du Pont shot and killed Dave Schultz, a world champion wrestler who won gold at the ’84 Olympics.
The ’84 season of the NCAA ended in the ’85 Final, the first championship for the Villanova Wildcats and their coach Rollie Massimino, who just passed away last year on 8/30/17, harmonically timed, as we’ll see, with the Wildcats 2nd title in 2016 and their 3rd here in 2018. We’ll also tie in that Amtrak Derailment from 12/18/17 in none other than DuPont Washington, perfectly synchronized with all this jazz.
