It's So Good To Be A College Student

Since the next few weeks are all about the NCAA tournament, Hot Clicks figured this is the perfect time to look at what's going on these days at colleges throughout the country. Judging by this great OnlineCollege.net piece titled The 15 Strangest College Courses In America, a lot of fun is going on. Especially if you're taking classes such as "The Art of Walking," "Joy of Garbage," "Arguing with Judge Judy: Popular 'Logic' on TV Judge Shows" (my favorite), and "Learning From YouTube." I wasn't fortunate enough to take this course, but I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that one lesson you can learn in that YouTube class is that if you're an up-and-coming model like Hillary Fisher, putting videos like this one on YouTube is a good career move. (Thanks to Ed Bocknick, for the Fisher tip.)

Minka Kelly News

The Friday Night Lights hottie has signed a deal to be the lead actress in a new CW show. However, this report says that she may still appear on the best show on television if it gets renewed. As long as she can still be on FNL, then this news is OK. Two Minka shows is better than one Minka show.

A Man College Fans Should Always Remember

You may have seen fans wearing these interesting outfits at college games this season. Some have even been featured in a couple of SI.com's College Superfans gallery. (Here and here. Reader King England, of Chicago, has noticed this trend and passed along the Web site where you can buy this customizable (is that word?) get up called, "The Root Suit."
