College is a Killer
For some people, the pressures of college are just too much. Same goes for TV shows. Everything was just swell for Zach Morris and the rest of the Saved by the Bell gang in high school, but once they moved on to California U., the show crumbled into nothingness and we had to wait years for Tiffany Amber Thiessen and Mark Paul Gosselaar to re-enter our lives. Check out the other nine shows on OTR's list of the top 10 TV shows killed by college.
We're visual creatures, which is why instead of merely commenting on The Princeton Review's top party schools list, CO-ED wanted to present the top 20 in pictures. Check them out, then vote for the best. We think Arizona State will win, but that's just a sneaking suspicion.
You've undoubtedly been going through college football withdrawal, but TheStreet.com doesn't want you to overdo it once the season starts. That's why the site put together a list of one team and one player to watch in each conference. The player to watch is from a school other than the team to watch in all conferences but the Big East, where the spotlight's on West Virginia and QB Pat White.
The Feminine Side
If you wear a pink thong over your practice shorts, you're probably going to get a new nickname. So from here on out, Banned in Hollywood will refer to USC quarterback-hunting-machine Rey Maualuga as a thong-side linebacker.
Dumb Arrest(s) of the Day
It's not a good time to be a West Virginia player. Two WVU basketball players were arrested at Monday's Pittsburgh Pirates game for underage drinking and scuffling with police. (Aren't there Backyard Brawl-inspired rules against WVU students loitering in the Pittsburgh area?) Meanwhile, a football recruit was charged with shooting a man during an attempted robbery.
More Mountaineer Drama
Pat White didn't get arrested, but he still put West Virginia in the news. The Heisman Trophy candidate caused a stir at Big East media day when he accused the Mountaineers' baseball team of not pursuing black athletes.
A Barrel of Fun
Student athletes aren't the only ones wearing bracelets these days. A couple was arrested Tuesday for stealing UNC and Duke merchandise from a Cracker Barrel in Gastonia. We're guessing these two are 'Heels fans, though, because while they snatched a UNC water pitcher, cookie jar, T-shirt, clock, platter and soft basketball, they only took a set of Duke coasters. This is why Cracker Barrel should stick to selling smoked hams and musical compilations and leave the college gear to the universities.
On the Road
While you were playing video games and jumping waves at the beach, this Texas student was making his way from the North Pole to the South Pole.
