NIL has manifested itself in hundreds of ways, and I think I have a new personal favorite. A pitcure of young Dieunerst Collin in a Popeyes became classic meme material. All these years later, Dieunerst is now an offensive lineman at Lake Erie College, a D-II school. Popeyes just signed Collin to an NIL deal, where he will get a billboard in his hometown as well as more content soon to come. From memes to dreams, NIL strikes again.

Bears of the Day
Today’s bears of the day are these cute little cubs and their mom! They’re pillaging trash, which is kinda gross, but they’re so dang cute so I’ll let it slide.
As the need for wildlife crossings continues to gain momentum in the public consciousness, it’s also important to remember to keep all food scraps and garbage away from wildlife, especially black bears.
