Villanova’s Jay Wright Almost Went To The Super Bowl

It’s just one more reason to hate on Seton Hall.

Happy Tuesday Nova Nation! Chris is walking through the snow, uphill, both ways... so Uncle Brendan is stepping in once again. And look, this time I was able to get the links posted before 11 AM! But enough about me, more on how Seton Hall is ruining Jay Wright’s dream trip.

Coach Wright actually secured Eagles tickets and was all set to charter a flight out to the big game immediately after Villanova’s contest with Seton Hall this Sunday. But the timetable was going to be tight, and he ultimately decided to play it safe rather than miss any part of the game. I know the Pirates had nothing to do with scheduling this contest, but how could they take this away from coach!

In other links, Villanova is atop both polls, and the shrewd number crunchers at the NCAA think that means they may have a shot at the title. Can’t get nothin’ by those guys. And now, the “news”.
