The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for December 17, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring the #narrative, a new women's soccer coach, and pregame jello shots.

Happy Tuesday, 'Nova Nation! I know they call this the most wonderful time of the year, but I must take issue with Andy Williams on this one, who clearly wasn't a college basketball fan. Dealing with off-nights for Villanova is easy enough when there's other basketball to watch.

But when I'm subjected to a complete lack of BIG EAST action, and only Duke vs. Gardner Webb on the television, well, that's when my thoughts get weird. I spent the better part of last night creating a list of Syracuse players I'd most like to see trip and fall in public.

(Okay, that list was pretty fun).

And now, the "news."

Seth Davis getting some words in on the #narrative. The only #narrative, for me anyways, that rings true is how Tony Romo can't get it done in the 4th quarter. Speaking of which, how did the NFC East get this bad, this fast?
