Things to Do List

Oakland Arena
Make sure to secure your seats in the student section or else you'll miss out on all this fun.

In case you've been ignoring your calendar all summer, it's now August, and whether you want to admit it or not, school is right around the corner. So enjoy these last few weeks on the beach because before you know it, you'll be right back in class wondering where your summer went. But that doesn’t mean your return to school has to be as torturous as a trip to the dentist. In fact, there are plenty of things you can do upon returning to campus to get yourself in shape for the coming school year. Here are some items at the top of our "to do" list:

1) Buy an air conditioner. Chances are the weather won't be so bad when you return to campus, but have you been outside today? It's disgusting. You don’t want to have to endure this without A/C.

2) Join a college fantasy football league. We know it's not as popular as the NFL brand, but give it a chance. It's not as bad as you think.

3) Get your season tickets. You don't want to be that guy sitting with the class of 1957 because you were too lazy to secure tickets in the student section.

Those are our back-to-school suggestions. What are yours?

Buy extra toilet paper for the LSU and Florida games.

Get that hotel reservation in Columbia so you can go to the one SEC stadium you haven't been to.

Find an old sociology professor and rip him a new one, but then come to my senses and thank him for putting the school first.

Make that last summer trip to Maryland to see friends and buy much!!!! cheaper alcohol to stock for the tailgates.

Everyone needs to start calling there girlfriends that they haven't talked to all summer. If you want any shot at hooking up with them or copying there homework this upcoming year, you need to start apologizing to them now for not talking to them for 3 months

Get some extra plastic grocery bags to wrap around your feet for Marquette's second season in the Big East.

It gets cold in Milwaukee in December and January, and the Gold Rush student section is general admission. Aside from making you look like a hobo, the plastic will keep your feet warm as you wait on the pavement for 7 hours before doors to get your choice seats. This simple measure will prevent many forms of pre-game frostbite.

The Warriors have a great lineup of opponents this year, and a team that could contend for the Big East title. Midnight Madness is less than 2 months away

When making a sign questioning who USC is, use question marks as well as exclamation marks. Otherwise, people might question the quality of UT's students.
Don't waste your time buying season football tickets at the University of Minnesota. Because we're not that good. However, make sure you know when the first day to hand in applications for student hockey tickets, those things go like hot cakes.
