Happy Monday, 'Nova Nation! It is Hoops Mania week, so like your most of our focus will be on the lead-up to that. We'll be launching our visitor list this morning, and updating it as the week goes on (if you see something, say something) as more prospects get confirmed. But it's already a good list.

But the real news is that KenPom loves Villanova - again. I've linked the Villanova team page below, but check out the national & conference rankings as well. The Big East is ranked 3rd entering the season. Power 5 my ass.

Reminder though, these will normalize after a month or so of games. I personally think his system is way too high on Butler.

And now, the "news."

"It's a decade ago," McNamara said. "It's a decade ago. It was special to me. Whether a book says it happened or not has zero relevance to the memory I have, the memory of my family and friends, the special people I was around that experienced it and the fans. No book is going to tell me otherwise. It happened."
