Answer:  RISE AND SHINE

(All familiar clue words today.  A couple of the jumbles seem to be new, though we’ve definitely seen “siryk” and “suwine” before.  The answer letter layout was the best jumble of the day.  If you had to rely on it to get the answer you would be hard pressed to do so.  It was the leading nature of the clue/question, combined with the great cartoon – and its dialog – that made the answer pretty evident.  All the experts are saying that the University of Syracuse doesn’t stand a chance tonight against North Carolina.  Well, 50 years ago they were saying that tiny Texas Western didn’t stand a chance against Adolph Rupp and his University of Kentucky Wildcats.  The Miners upset the heavily favored Wildcats 72 – 65.  Never say never, folks!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Never say never is true! Remember when Villanova beat Georgetown for the championship in ’85?

    FINALE is in my “toughest words” list for a reason. Took me around a minute to figure it out. The answer letter layout was great. I was clueless for a while. Then, I figured that the second word was AND. After that, RISE AND SHINE just occurred to me. Could have been a really long day otherwise.
