Stank mauling fools vs Wisconsin
Stank mauling fools vs Wisconsin

We all may need to become Jacksonville Jaguars fans in 2014.  In addition to Paul Posluszny, the Jags added Nate Stupar for the final 7 games of 2013; drafted Allen Robinson in the second round a few months ago; and they added Matt Stankiewitch as a free agent, to compete for an interior O-line position.  That's four Lions on the 2014 Jags roster - one more than the defending Super Bowl champ Seahawks (Michael Robinson, Jordan Hill, Garry Gilliam).

Stank, from Blue Mountain, earned his first starts as a redshirt freshman in 2009, but missed all of 2010 recovering from an illness that saw him lose 50 lbs or so.  But he took over the pivot in 2011, and anchored the offensive line for the 2012 squad whose year now adorns Beaver Stadium.   Stank was a first team All Big Ten as a senior.  Follow him, or at least, tweet him 'Murican flag photos, @MattStank54

But don't tell him that his #54 is now being worn by a walk-on kicking specialist from Illinois, Sean Corcoran.
