    Adam, I hear Jenkins has decided to come back for his senior year. Heard anything about this?

    I think Wynn had a carry in the game but I think it was for a loss or no gain

    Help me Adam, I have had a couple of times your articles get delayed, (Jenkins is a good example). i am out on the west coast, I can;t see how it would make a difference but is there something that would possibly delay your article oout here (or should I contact my internet provider to see why my service sucks?) 🙂

    And what is this I hear about Meyer resigning? ha ha

    • I honestly have no clue why articles are delayed – they shouldn’t be. How are you accessing the site? If you’re checking via RSS reader, sometimes those take a little while to update. But if you are just visiting via bookmark, it should be up immediately.
