BBAO: Jumping back in the saddle

We're Black and Blue All Over:

Hello there. I hope everyone had a great time in my absence last week. I know I enjoyed being absent, or something like that. But we've got a great week planned and I can't wait to get started.

It appears our top-notch ESPN.com editing staff kept you up-to-date during what was a relatively quiet week. Sunday's links post should get you caught up with most of the weekend coverage around the division, but I managed to scrounge up some additional stories for your Monday morning coffee.

On with it…
