Why, indeed?

COMMENTARY: Somehow, All Is Not Lost |
David Cloninger walks the fine line between delusional fan and hopeful skeptic. There's enough hedging in here to make the Georgia Bulldawgs think they're playing a home game.

Draft Season: Four Months on the Clock | Bobby Deren
Thanks to Bobby Deren for his support.
