Multi-Tasking: Wofford @ Appalachian State/New Hampshire @ Villanova

BOONE — One of the frustrations of being passionate about the Football Championship Subdivision is that I find myself torn on most weekends about what stadium I want to be in on any given Saturday.
On this crucial Saturday, just a little over a week before the 2010 NCAA Division I Football Championship playoff field is announced, I can think of three or four places I'd like to be.
In the Philadelphia area alone, just a short commute from CSN headquarters, you have two key games going on.
Penn is trying to clinch a share of the Ivy League crown against longtime rival Harvard at historic Franklin Field (the Quakers are up 3-0 in the second quarter on an Andre Sampson field goal as I write this).
And Villanova is hosting New Hampshire in a battle for playoff survival out on the Main Line. It's been a struggle all day long for the defending national champs, who trail UNH 31-24 early in the fourth quarter.
But until that clone technology is ironed out, I have to find other ways to multi-task.
I am sitting in the bowels of Kidd Brewer Stadium, watching the New Hampshire-Villanova on DirecTV as I prepare for the start of the Wofford-Appalachian State game later in the day.
Wofford and Appalachian State will be deciding the Southern Conference auto bid before an anticipated crowd of over 30,000 on a sun-splashed, 65-degree senior day here in Boone.
If that wasn't enough, the trees that line the perimeter of Kidd Brewer Stadium are still at least somewhat awash with bursts of color for those that are not interested in football.
