Gameday, b*tches.

IT'S GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMEEEEEEEDAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYY! Cannot believe it took this long to get here, but we made it you guys!

I encourage you to read the lead story from Josh over at CoBL on the legacies that will be left by Ryan Arcidiacono and Daniel Ochefu. Really good stuff and take from media day from our good friend. And I tend to agree that while I already am grateful for what these two have done for the program's resurgence, they can really cement that status among the Villanova greats with one last run.

Let's get it!

And now, the "news."
