The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for April 1st, 2013

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring Bobby Curtis, more track & field, and a country-music treasure.

I'm more of a Jason Aldean, Eric Church country fan, myself. And I don't want to jump the gun or anything, but is Villanova accepting the times and (gulp), getting current?*
