All college students know that having a good football team is something to be proud of. The bragging rights are endless, especially when your team beats your conference rival. Bleacher Report recently announced the top 50 college football programs, based on “national championships, conference championships, postseason success, Heisman winners, All-Americans, and [number of] wins.”

Does your school make the list? If so, feel free to brag; I know I will be doing my fair share of bragging. Look who’s number one! Boomer Sooner!

  1. University of Oklahoma. The number one team in the nation is the University of Oklahoma Sooners, who have had a .765 winning percentage since 1945.

Best and Worst Dips to Indulge in at College Football Parties

College football season is well under way and while most students are worried about the stats, the players, and the pigskin, there are a few of us football fans out there that enjoy the sport, but also love the socializing that comes with watching games.

From tailgating on the campus lawns to beer pong in the dorms, college students cheer on their teams from the sidelines, but also from their couches while watching the game on television. Either way, students will often throw game day parties and, thus, a plethora of fattening (yet irresistibly delicious) foods is not far behind.

The most popular game day snack is probably the chips and dip set up. Although affordable and quick to prepare (lets get real- most of you are buying chips and dips from your local grocery story and simply adding a spoon once you pop the lid), chips and dip can also be a delicious, but dangerous, delight.

Here is a list of the best and worst popular dips, according to calorie and fat content, to give you an idea of just what kind of indulging you’re willing to undergo. Read the rest of this entry »



Bruce Jenner Education Background

Bruce JennerBruce Jenner was born on October 28, 1949 in Mt. Kisco, a small town in upstate New York. He was the oldest of three children.

He was a student at Newtown High School in Connecticut, after spending a year in high school in Sleepy Hollow, NY where he earned a scholarship in football. He enrolled in Graceland University but a knee injury forced him to stop playing. That was when he decided to switch to the decathlon. He debuted in a decathlon in 1970 where he placed sixth.

He then entered the decathlon at the 1972 U.S. Olympic trials where he placed third, and finished in tenth place at the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich. These triumphs prompted him to commit full-time to a grueling regimen. During that period, he spent 8 hours a day at the track at San Jose College. His presence there was part of what made San Jose a hotbed for elite athletes to train. Read the rest of this entry »

The weather outside is getting a bit chilly, and you know what that means… fall football and high school homecoming dance season is just around the corner!

September 9-16, 2010 in Manhattan the infamous Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week shows were held at the event’s new venue location, Lincoln Center, and designers didn’t disappoint with the gorgeous dresses they showcased at the world’s most talked about fashion event.

While most of the gowns will be worn by Hollywood starlets to the Grammys and the Oscars, there will be a substantially high number of teenage girls wanting the looks for their homecoming dances this coming fall.

This year, “less is more” seemed to be a common theme, as the dresses were shorter in length but bigger in designs. It was apparent that bright and bold colors were the biggest trends, followed by textured dresses and sharp tailoring. Read the rest of this entry »

LSU Leads Top Tailgating Schools in the U.S.

tailgate foodFootball season is finally here! At the University of Oklahoma, football is almost a religion, and part of the religion is the tailgating parties that occur before the game starts.

Tailgating usually consists of a big group of people getting together a few hours before kick off, grilling some burgers, and drinking a few beers. It is a great time to build team spirit, get excited for the upcoming game, and catch up with friends. At my school, we shut down one of the main streets in town with tailgating madness. It’s a huge blast!

Disappointingly enough, OU was not voted one of the top tailgating schools in the USA this fall. According to the Associated Press, the honor of best tailgating school belongs to Louisiana State University. The factors that pushed them over the edge include their tailgating cuisine: spicy alligator, andouille sausage, and gumbo. Man, that sure beats a Ballpark Frank, in my opinion.

Here are the other top tailgating schools: Read the rest of this entry »
