The Mid-Morning Dump - 4/16/14

THE LEGEND OF MELVIN EJIM. Dean Berhow-Goll pens a great article about the difficult path Melvin Ejim took to earn his stardom.

SCHOLAR-ATHLETE OF THE YEAR. Ejim was named the Big 12 basketball scholar-athlete of the year. Like there was any other choice.

LINGUIST MIC'D UP. Another day, another new coach mic'd up.

CUONZO MARTIN TO CAL. The Tennessee coach is off to Cal, and all of his Vol players are giving him their blessing.

FATNESS, ENGAGE. Schools are now allowed to give student-athletes unlimited meals and snacks.

TALLAHASSEE POLICE ARE TERRIBLE. A reminder that the Jameis Winston investigation was horrendously botched.

WHY DO COLLEGE KICKERS SUCK? Chris Kluwe stops by Deadspin to explain.

BANDWAGON HAT. You can be a fan of whichever team you want with this sweet LED hat.

SO NEBRASKA. A missing boy was found in a claw machine inside a Lincoln bowling alley.
