A quick note before we get to the links. This is a milestone post of sorts as today officially marks one year of me writing Hot Cougar Action.
In what started as just a way to cover fall camp, this somehow turned into a regular thing with today being the 367th (thanks for nothing leap year) straight day I've written this post. A blog with 367 straight days with a post has to be some kind of record so hopefully we get an award or certificate in the mail soon. And to think, it started so innocently:
Brian: I'm thinking mornings for the linkpost/whatever. Can be a return of Hot Cougar Action, perhaps. Basically, we'd take one point, feature it, write a quick paragraph and then hit the links/video/goofy pictures/close-ups of Dominique Williams' hair after the jump.
Mark: Yeah I can handle that.
In hindsight, I apologize for the complete lack of pictures of Dominique Williams' hair.

Chat: Chat with Ted Miller - SportsNation - ESPN
Is Andrei Lintz going to shock people? I mean no one has even heard of the guy. Ted Miller (3:43 PM) I've heard of him! Had a great spring. Big athletic tight ends doubling as receivers is kind of a new trend -- see the Gronk. He sounds like another guy who can force an opponent to defend the entire field -- and keep the attention around Marquess Wilson from being too overbearing.
