In Soviet Unverified Voracity, Otter Eats Crocodile

BASKETBALL. This is Henri The Otter Of Ennui's brother, Hank The Otter Of Swank. He's trying to eat a crocodile. He has been watching Michigan basketball and is feeling rather metal. m/ Don't drink?

One Frame At A Time: Illinois

Let's enumerate the wonderful things about this GIF: The Orange Crush is very bad at casting spells, judging by the two dudes right behind Nik Stauskas. Stauskas staring down 6'11" Nnanna Egwu for a couple seconds, going "yeah, I got this," and coldly hitting a three in his face.
