Super Bowl things

Zac Robinson on who he’ll root for in the Super Bowl. “You know I just have so much respect for that organization and for Brady. Tommy was good to me and helped me a lot when I was there. I’d like to see them kick that “deflategate” stuff to the curb. I always like to watch Tom Brady play quarterback and see him take over games. It is a lot of fun to see.” (Scout)

The line should return to being a strength for the Cowboys again. Crabtree, Lewis, Wilson and guard Jesse Robinson are all back. Oklahoma State also expects to sign a total of seven offensive linemen, including a trio of junior-college recruits as well as transfer Victor Salako, who manned left tackle for UAB last season.

Add that all together, and the Cowboys figure to be seasoned and deep in 2015. (ESPN)

Copying is the mighty force that has allowed the human race to move from stone knives to remote-guided drones, from digging sticks to crops that manufacture their own pesticides. Plenty of animals can innovate, but no other species on earth can imitate with the skill and accuracy of a human being. We’re natural-born rip-off artists. To be human is to copy. (99U)
