Linking Laconically Is Down A 2011 Recruit, Plus FSAB

Hi all, I'm trying something different today -- at the end of this Linking Laconically will be another entry in the Favorite Spartan Athlete Bracket.  This time All-American running back Javon Ringer will face Norris Trophy winner Duncan Keith.  Have your say in the poll at the end of the post. Onto the news!
