Welcome welcome, to another day of links. Mixed in with the normal mid-week news are some recruiting related posts. Expect more over the next week.

Another turn in the Lobo and Davie drama.

The story that won’t end gets another chapter. This report states former football coach Bob Davie gave the athletic department a memo just before the start of the season listing his concerns.

Others sounded more important, scholarship checks getting to players late and a lack of mental health resources available.

Banner Society pokes some fun at what some twitter fans say on signing day about recruiting. Certainly none of these things were ever said by MWC fans right?
