Answer:  BADGER HIM

(Maybe Jeff’s dark horse pick for the tournament is Wisconsin???  They do have a good program, but they face a determined Pitt in the first round.  My NCAA Basketball knowledge is very cursory these days.  Michigan is the Weasels, right???  I usually pick teams like Kansas to go all the way.

We had no new clue words today, but two of the jumbles came up as new.  We’ve definitely seen “citdh” and “varob” before.  It was fun to see “garlic” again!  Who doesn’t like garlic?  Such a great flavor, and it’s good for you!  David’s answer letter layout didn’t give anything away.  It was a masterful jumble.  Jeff’s cartoon was fun too.  I always like when he draws critters.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I had a hard time with BRAVO until I was able to back into it!

    Indeed it was a masterful answer letter layout. Took me 10-15 seconds to figure out the answer even though it was only 9 letters long. I knew that the second word was HIM, and that helped. For some reason, I initially typed GAMBER for the first word and then realized that I needed the M for the second word. I got BADGER quickly after that. I also had to think a second for MANAGE and GARLIC (the former was in my “tougher words” list, and has now moved to “tough words”; the latter stays in “tough words”).
