Hunting Terrelle Pryor: Campus Clicks
The Beacon/The Hunted
OK, so USC demolished Ohio State on primetime television. And yeah, Beanie Wells' foot injury continues to plague him. And sure, Ohio is a battleground state this election season and all its residents are justifiably stressed. But then there's Terrelle Pryor, a beacon of light and hope and the subject of an excellent profile in Details' October issue. Granted, the title The Hunted doesn't really fit with the whole "ray of light" theme we're going for here, but so be it.
I Smell a Challenge
Chances are, even your grandma knows Ed Hochuli blew it (literally) in Sunday's Broncos-Chargers game. But college football has seen its share of questionable calls as well. Just rewind to last week's Washington-BYU game for proof. From the puzzling to the downright infuriating, Bleacher Report's ranking the 10 worst calls of the BCS era.
As promised, celebrity after celebrity paced the USC sidelines for Saturday night's game. And since the world only needed so many pictures of USC touchdown celebrations, the cameramen turned their lenses to the sideline-star power instead.
That's a Shockingly Ugly Shocker
Ugly Fugly's put together a list of the 15 worst college logos, and while we've got some issues with the selections (Maryland, Duke, N.C. State and Wake Forest? Anti-ACC bias, much?), there's no arguing with the top three finishers, Culver Stockton, Western Kentucky and Wichita State. Never have an abstract wildcat, a piece of cloth and a stock of wheat looked so bad.
One Way to Win the Big Ten
From loyal Clicks reader Jordan: "Looks like Ohio State is taking out its aggression over the USC loss by creating false reports of Penn Staters stabbing them." An intriguing e-mail, we're sure you'll agree. Just because the accuser was spotted in an OSU cap doesn't mean Jordan's theory is correct, but we have always said false accusation and demoralization are acceptable ways to sure-up a conference championship.
All Hail the Titany Lions
Syracuse is clearly doomed to be one of college football's main whipping boys for a long, long time, but if there was one thing we 'cusians could count on (besides Jim Boeheim and John Desko) it was our excellent proof-reading skills. No longer.
It's Pledge Time
Maybe you're not the frat-type, but if you are, chances are you've got a mental ranking, and you're convinced not getting to pledge your top choice will spell four years of lame parties, celibacy and ugly hoodies. That's why OTR's put together a guide for getting into the frat of your choice, and believe it or not, it all comes down to which polo you wear.
The Newest Addiction
Next time your parents or a concerned friend sits you down and chastises you for your addictive smoking and drinking habits, place a reassuring hand on his or her shoulder and say, "at least I'm not a tanorexic."
