Answer:  SUBJECT TO CHANGE

(Wow!  Talk about your misdirections.  I almost gave up on this one!  I even thought – for a while – that maybe some of the circles were wrong on the clue words.  You know, like a newspaper misprint, or something.  With the “N” and the “G” I was looking for an “I”.  Also, it’s fairly rare that we use a “J” in the final answer.  Even writing out all the letters in alphabetical order didn’t help me today.  What finally helped me was to look for synonyms for “current” . . . with no luck.  And then, for synonyms for “topic”!  BINGO!  First word that comes up is “subject”.  I’m getting too old for this!

All of today’s clue words are on the ralis95 clue word database.  I thought that “adjoin” might be new, but I guess we just haven’t seen it in a while.  Two of the jumbles came up as new for me, but we’ve seen “tngus” and – surprisingly – “jaindo” in previous Jumbles.  The answer letter layout was a masterful thirteen letter jumble!  It kept me clueless for quite some time.  Looking at the AECGHN – after figuring out SUBJECT – didn’t scream CHANGE to me right away either.  But I saw it after a few looks.

Fine cartoon of Jeff and some buddy at a bar, watching this week’s classic cross-state rivalry football game.  A lot of big games this Saturday!  Michigan would appear to be the favorite in this matchup.  They’re ranked #4 in the nation, and they are the Home team.  But Michigan State absolutely LIVES to mess up the Wolverines!  I can’t imagine this being a runaway for either one of them.  I actually like both of these teams, but I’m a big Penn State fan, so a Michigan State upset would be a little poetic justice for me.  LOL!  Sorry, Jeff!  Great Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
