The Sun's Arizin: Villanova Wildcats news and links for April 24, 2014

Daily Villanova Wildcats, today featuring the big Radnor meeting, grand salami's, and the man behind the NCAA fight.

Happy Thursday 'Nova Nation! Today is a big day - the Radnor BOC will meet to decide if a re-vote is required because some crazed woman is out for blood. Shouldn't C-SPAN be broadcasting this damn thing so we can all watch?

I have to say, that sounds a little sketchy - but I'd like to know how much he was getting paid. If he's donated $60-80,000 from Villanova to Radnor and he's not getting anywhere close to that amount back, he's likely telling the truth.
