THE DOPE: The Wildcats, after three years in the football dumps, are beginning to grow new claws. It is not just that Coach Frank Reagan has those 24 men returning from last season's dismal team. There is an incoming sophomore class that cheers up Reagan whenever he thinks about it. "We had a mighty good frosh squad last year," Reagan says, "and some of them might just be starting before this season gets too far along." The man the Wildcats are really watching is sophomore Quarterback Jim Grazione. If Grazione is anything near as good as he was as a freshman, he will not only break into the starting lineup but will also force the Wildcats to redesign their offense into a wide-open game to accommodate his sharpshooting passing arm. Until then, however, Villanova will play it fairly close to the vest, with returning backs Davey Parr, John Bauer and Bill Halligan doing most of the work on the ground.
