Link Drop: We Don’t Stop When the Basketball Does

My sincerest apologies, dear readers, for missing last week’s link drop (and the Weekend Review — but that’s another story, albeit with pretty much the same plotline). I completely forgot was unsuccessfully fighting Katniss Everdeen and ten other children to the death in front of millions of people incredibly depressed and disheartened after our early exit against NC State (That’s the excuse that’s probably most acceptable to you guys, I guess).

Anyway, y’all still remember how this works, right? I “drop” the links, you read them. Pretty simple.

A considerably less Hoya-full collection of links after the jump.
