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

New, 26 comments

Daily Villanova Wildcats links, today featuring major donations, Lipari's swansong, and the USMNT announces their World Cup preliminary roster.

I'm starting to enjoy the silly season. Instead of talking about 'Nova every morning, I can rant and rave about whatever I want. For instance, today my mind is on the 30-man preliminary roster that was announced by the United States for the upcoming World Cup. 

It's nearly impossible for me to tell how many soccer fans we have on here (MikeJ. being one notable supporter of the beautiful game), so if you're fired up for Brazil like I am, we can discuss the roster, and who we think will make the final cut in the comments.

And now, the "news."
