The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for December 17, 2014

Daily Villanova links.

Huuuuuuuuump Daaaaaaaaaaay! I'll tell you what, I might be out of college but finals week still sucks. No basketball game to cover. The football team is done for the year and we already had the big news on Monday night.

What's a blogger to do? Well, today I'm going to start my early 2015 football previews. Today's was easy (it'll be dropping around 8am) because I had to write about the backfield situation.

Hint: There's not much of a situation. We've got the best damn player in the country back for his senior season. But you should read it to learn about the running back situation, which is less clear but still exciting.

And now, the "news."
