Are you a sports addict?

Written by Aaron B.  In May, my little brother graduated from Mizzou. He majored in finance and was somehow able to immediately find a job in his field at an investment firm, albeit part time.

Yeah . . . That’s My Son’s Football in Your Cheese Dip

By Stevie Cocksman Despite my passionate love of college football, I’ve always had a strong aversion to boys throwing a football in the tailgate parking lot. First, those that primarily engage in it – eight to eighteen year old boys – are not by nature a considerate group. Seldom does a 12-year old boy stop… Read more »

The Linemaker Poll

Popularity polls are the most hotly contested useless debate college football fans engage in every year.  Alumni and students work themselves into a frenzy all fall because “the media doesn’t respect them.” In reality, the only group of individuals with a vested interest in ranking teams accurately each week are the members of the linesmaking… Read more »

The Ten Commandments of the Gym

It’s been a while since I’ve publicly berated groups of individuals for making poor choices in social settings. I think the last time I climbed atop my soapbox was for an article I wrote about men’s footwear and how their shoe decisions drastically impact my everyday life.

All That and a Bag of Mail: West Virginia Couch Burning Edition

It’s Friday which means it’s mailbag time. Our beaver pelt trader of the week is the LSU fan who did this paint job.
