The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for October 13, 2014

Daily Villanova links.

Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! It's William & Mary week, and before the Tribe got demolished by New Hampshire over the weekend I would have been very scared of the trip to Williamsburg. Now, I'm just back to my regularly scheduled early-week nerves. By Friday I'll be expecting another demolition.

We'll have coverage of Andy Talley's press conference, and the polls should be out early in the afternoon. Expect 'Nova to move in to the Top 5 of the TSN Poll after McNeese State lost over the weekend.

And now, the "news."
