Campus Clicks
By Mallory Rubin
Pros, Cons and Goodbyes
Did Wake Forest fans break the court-rushing rules after beating UNC? :: Streeter Lecka/Getty Images

First, Storming the Floor would like to extend a virtual high-five Wake Forest's way. Now, STF would like to confess that it's confused. These guys wrote the official storming the floor rules, but even they can't decide if Wake fans were justified in rushing the court after beating formerly top-ranked UNC. Fans of a top 10 team are never, ever supposed to storm the floor -- it's a cardinal rule of sorts -- but there were some compelling extenuating circumstances in this case. Clearly, it's time to map out the pros and cons.

On an unrelated note, we've got some news: This is the final edition of Campus Clicks. It's admittedly a sad day, but wipe those tears from your eyes, because everything's going to be OK. I'm moving on to run SI.com's college football page, and SIOC will be incorporated into the Extra Mustard page. Before you ask, yes, Cheerleader of the Week will live on. Jimmy Traina, who runs EM and writes Hot Clicks, will take good care of you all. We know you'll like Jimmy, because he's tight with Erin Andrews and posts pictures of scantily clad women every single day. He's a Yankees fan, but hey, no one's perfect. So, thanks to the SIOC team and to all you readers and bloggers for making these last seven months so great. Life will be a little emptier without daily discussions about Facebook, USC Song Girls and Tim Tebow's eye black.

That's Just So Typically Him

We hope none of you Sooners fans caught Fox Sports Southwest's replay of the Fiesta Bowl, because if you did, you, like loyal Clicks reader Long, probably saw the commercial it mistakenly aired advertising 2008 Oklahoma Sooners championship footballs. Awkward. Since now we've already reminded you of your misery, it seems acceptable to link to Ryan Parker Songs' latest creation, a Sooner-centric tune called Stoops, He Did it Again. Oh Bobby, Bobby.

Crystal Math

Note to self: Crystal meth puns don't make good headlines, especially when talking about the holier-than-thou Florida Gators.

A Puffy Schedule

Maybe if Irish guard Kyle McAlarney weren't so afraid of the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, he'd have a little more time to fear UConn, Pitt, Syracuse and the other Big East foes.

Some Pre-Semester Motivation

In case you need a little motivation as spring semester begins, we'll remind you college kids started some of the most successful and crucial companies out there. Dell. FedEx. Microsoft. All started by college kids just like you (or at least the same age as you). It's currently 10:08 and we're already hungry, so there's a small part of us (somewhere in our abdomen) that thinks Insomnia Cookies is the most impressive college start-up on this list.

Your First Bubble Watch

You can still count the number of conference games each team has played on one hand, but if you think that means it's too early to start a Bubble Watch, you're sadly mistaken. For all this talk about nine Big East teams making the tournament, we can't help but notice OSF only has three teams (Pitt, UConn and 'Cuse) as locks. But hey, three is better than zero (sorry SEC fans, just sayin').

The Power Of Positive Thinking

Don Meyer is clearly a glass-half-full kind of guy. The Northern State basketball coach lost his left leg after a September car crash, and during the post-crash surgery, doctors found cancer. But with a win over Mary on Saturday night, Meyer became the all-time winningest men's college basketball coach, passing Bob Knight with his 903rd win. And when he stood up from his wheelchair to address the crowd, all he could say was that he hadn't had this much fun since his wedding.

UR An Idiot

If, in the last 24 hours, you've sent a text, listened to an MP3 or Googled something, you're a true Generation Y-er. If you've typed "ur" instead of "your" or "you're," taken a picture of yourself in front of a mirror and posted it on MySpace or Facebook or spent a day watching all your DVRed episodes of True Beauty and The Real World, you're a true Generation Y-er, too, but That's So Fetch feels more comfortable openly judging you.

Pop Culture Nugget

Dane Cook deserves all 10 spots on CO-ED's list of the 10 least funny comedians of all time.

Today In Hot Clicks
Beyonce, Salma Hayek, Megan Fox :: Hot Clicks

Bad day for Giants, but not for Tiki Barber ... Delhomme disaster ... Must-see Red Sox car ... Rickey's Hall Call ... Worst "Ikea" game ... Video: SNL on BCS ... Tebow ... Banned poker ad.

Odds and Ends

The postseason, in pictures ... Let the players celebrate -- excessively ... Floridians, keep your eyes peeled for heavy-set ninjas ... A new trend: co-ed wrestling.

Son Of A!

In fairness to Verne Lundquist, we wouldn't have known what to say either if our network had just aired a curse-laden "mic'ed up" clip from near the Michigan State basketball bench.

Taking Charge

How about instead of discussing whether or not this was a charge, we take a moment and marvel at the fact that Jonny Flynn, who checks in at a cool 6-foot-0, just took off from outside the paint and posterized Rutgers' Mike Rosario.
