College football season is in full swing and you know what that means…tailgating!

Tailgating is a religion for most college football fans. You spend more time setting up and tailgating than actually attending the game.

Who are the best tailgating schools in the U.S.

1) Ole Miss

Home of “The Grove” – a 10 acre piece of ground that is dedicated to tailgating before Ole Miss football games. No other school can do it like the University of Mississippi. Everyone is all decked out in their Ole Miss Rebels jerseys, logo hats and even fancier clothes than their Sunday church outfit. The large oak trees provide shade and give the tailgating experience a cozy atmosphere. If you haven’t been to an Ole Miss tailgate at The Grove, go check it out.

2) LSU 

3) University of Tennessee

4) Texas A&M

5) Wisconsin

The pre party tailgate usually consists of a bunch of rowdy folks drinking beer, grilling burgers and hotdogs, listening to loud music and catching up with old friends.

Not all tailgating parties are rowdy. You have a few consistent fans that are just wanting to get together to relax and enjoy some good food together before the game.

Southeastern U.S. Crawling with Chlamydia and Gonorrhea with Highest STD Rates

Someone might want to go check on the southeastern United States, they’re not doing so hot lately. The Top Masters in Health Care recently released an interactive infographic detailing various health statistics and ranking them on a state-by-state basis, and the Bible Belt is trending in an unholy way. Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana have the most obese populations, the highest amount of cancer deaths, and the fewest teeth. Along with South Carolina, those states also have the most cases of Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. In the southeast, the gonorrhea rate per 100,000 people is over 100, and the chlamydia rate per 100,000 people is 400 plus.

Translation: the STD numbers in the respective states are high enough to be classified as epidemic.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that there are 820,000 new cases of gonorrhea—a curable STD—per year in America. Chlamydia is also a curable STD that infects an estimated one million Americans, according to the CDC. Poverty helped explain the obesity, cancer deaths, and lack of teeth in the South, and I’m sure that has some bearing on the STD numbers, but there might be a bigger factor at play for this category: amorous college students.

The University of Mississippi, known more commonly as Ole Miss, was founded in 1848, and has been dealing with issues regarding its official school mascot since 2003. Because of the controversy, administration removed the current mascot: southern plantation era, white-haired “Colonel Reb”.

Critics often referred to Colonel Reb as racist and insensitive, so the university felt it was necessary to change it, but until now, the school remained unofficially represented for the past 7 years.

The university decided that a student committee would spearhead the selection process for the new mascot. Eleven initial suggestions were narrowed down to a land shark, a black bear and a muscled male character known as Hotty Toddy (to be named after the college’s spirit chant).
