Happy Wednesday everyone!  We start this like most Linking Laconicallies these days with a poll in the Favorite Spartan Athlete Bracket.  This matchup pits All-Big Ten Defensive Team member and budding thespian Delvon Roe against Brandon Fields, he of the Eddleman-Fields punter of the year trophy.  Vote hard, because is there such thing as voting easy?

And now, the links.
