Linking Laconically Is Asking for Your Input

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Happy Thursday! Posting's been a bit sporadic, but with the bye week and all there hasn't been a tremendous amount to analyze this week.  First though, I'd like to ask a favor.

SB Nation is figuring out how to better serve you readers, and if you could fill out this survey, it'd be greatly appreciated.  As a bonus, the three blogs who have the greatest percentage of their readers complete surveys will have $500 donated to the charity of their choice. If we win, it'll be Ele's Place, a counseling center in Lansing for children who have lost loved ones.  It's a great cause, so hopefully you'll take a few minutes and complete the survey at the link below:

And now, more links!

"Waterboy" helped inspire Spartans | Lansing State Journal |  Rest assured the football staff will not rest until all football movies released in the '90s have been mined and exploited.  Next up -- "The Last Boy Scout"!

Demands on athletics directors resemble CEO challenges –  A great national article on Mark Hollis's achievements as athletic director, with a bit on Dave Brandon as well.  It seems like Hollis should be making closer to what Brandon's making, shouldn't it?

Dantonio presser bullet points - LSJ Blogs: Hey, Joe  A bit more on Dantonio's press conference yesterday, with even more emphasis on Kirk Cousins needing to loosen up a bit.  Has Dantonio tried the same speech Eric Taylor gave Matt Saracen about getting a girl in the backseat of a car?  That seemed to work pretty well.

Big Ten awards race tracker - Big Ten Blog - ESPN  Jerel Worthy is listed for Defensive Player of the Year and Marcus Rush is second for Freshman of the Year.

Week Six F/+ Rankings - Football Study Hall  Michigan State moves up to 20th in Bill Connolly's F/+ rankings.  For all the Football Outsiders' NCAA rankings, go hyuh and hyuh.

Will playing on a ship affect a jump shot? - College Basketball Nation Blog - ESPN  Lastly, the folks over at ESPN have the courage to address the issues you vaguely thought could be issues.
