We've got everything you need to know to get prepped for the game in our preview post - so hang out in there all day and come up with creative insults for Lafayette, obviously.

And now, the "news."

Game Preview: Villanova vs. Lafayette | Big East Coast Bias
Both Arch and Jenkins are expected to play, though Arch will not be 100%. I want to see him on the court as much as the next guy, but I'm thinking we can win this without him. No sense in rushing him back.

Villanova Preview: Lafayette Leopards (Nov. 8) | City of Basketball Love
Oh good, we're playing a team who is going to jack up 30 shots from downtown tomorrow. Exactly what I wanted to hear.

Sneaky, sneaky Jay. Pumping up Fran O'Hanlon in the pregame interview to make him feel nice and safe coming back to the Pavilion. Then you go ahead and lay another 45-point beatdown on him. Vicious, and I love it.

Golden Eagles are beast of new Big East |
I don't know about that but they've got the craziest coach in the conference. To his detriment though, Buzz has been overtaken by Ed Cooley for sweatiest.

New Season, New Beer: Introducing 'CasuALE: Stonewalls IPA' | Casual Hoya
Despite my disdain for all things Hoya, this is actually pretty cool. And hint, we might be working on a joint operation with these guys for the Villanova vs. Georgetown game in Philly this year. I'm sure they'll bring this beer. We'll bring an assload of Natty Light. Party on.
