Don’t worry about Villanova after the Butler loss

The ‘Cats will be just fine.

Happy Tuesday (and a belated Happy 2018!) ‘Nova Nation! My apologies for dipping out for a while - needed to catch a break and spend time with family away from the internet as much as possible. It was good. And then I realized I never told anyone. Whoops!

Anyways, I’m back and here to say that yes, Villanova will be just fine. The defense needs some work, but the offense is otherworldly. I’m buoyant on the defense catching up. The pieces are too good for it not to, and the coach has fixed these issues before.

Although, the next couple of weeks while we ride out the injury bug could be eventful.

And now, the “news.”
