The goal of the Friday Afternoon Link Dump is to help you ease into the weekend by giving you things to occupy your time at work until the clock strikes 5pm.
To accomplish that we dive into the top stories from each of the Big 12 school's local papers. We also add a few non-Big 12 links and a YouTube clip for the hell of it.
