College Students Not Getting Enough Fruits and Veggies

It comes with no surprise that college life doesn’t encourage healthy eating habits. Dining halls allow easy access to pizza and burgers, while late-night cram session call for second or third dinners. However, one study’s findings, by Oregon State University, may cause further alarm.

Most college students aren’t eating enough fruits and vegetables. The recommended amount is five servings; most go days without eating one. The university surveyed 582 college students and found that, on average, men ate five servings a week, and women ate four.

“We found that students skipped meals fairly frequently, which could account for some of the lack of fruits and veggies,” said Brad Cardinal in a news release. “Still, even accounting for fewer meals consumed, the students were on average not always eating even one serving of fruits or vegetables per day, far below USDA guidelines.”

Schools Encourage Students to Nap for Success

I don’t know about you, but every day around 2:00 p.m., I hit a brick wall. Figuratively, not literally, of course. At this time, every single day, I start getting sleepy. My eyes droop, I have to constantly stifle yawns, and I cannot focus on anything more mentally stimulating than a game of Angry Birds on my phone.

Evidently, I am not alone. For the past four years, the University of California in Davis has been promoting the benefits of enough sleep to its students. The school has actually been promoting napping as a way to boost academic performance, while also boosting focus and productivity.

According to much research, humans need approximately 7-9 hours of sleep; if you do not get this amount of sleep at night, you can supplement it with power naps that last 20-30 minutes. Also, many humans have natural energy slumps between 10-11 a.m. and 2-4 p.m., (which explains why I need a nap at this time on most days).

Don’t Forget Us: College Football Non-Title Game Preview

Aside from the various conference title games, there’s plenty of other good action to keep you on your seat in college football this weekend. Such as:

1) #2 Oregon at Oregon State— The annual “Civil War” battle between the Beavers and Ducks has lost a lot of its luster since Oregon State’s season descended to mediocrity (in a decidedly mediocre conference.) Whatever glimmer of hope we got for a decent game after Oregon State beat USC was tempered by a 38-0 whitewash from Stanford. Before you tell me “It’s a rivalry game! Anything can happen!” remember that Oregon has been held under 42 points once all season and Oregon State lost by 17 to Washington State. Unfortunately for TCU, the Ducks win in a laugher.

College Football Stunner: Buckeyes Blitzed

Now things are getting interesting.

After seven weeks of college football, the two teams most thought would meet for the national championship, Alabama and Ohio State, have both lost. As a result, the race to Glendale is wide open. Here’s a look at the significant games from Week 7:ohio state

1. Rocked at Camp Randall: After suffering from coverage team breakdowns all season, the Wisconsin Badgers finally got to experience the other side of the coin. David Gilreath took the opening kickoff back 97 yards for a touchdown to put Ohio State behind the 8-ball, and the Badgers jumped out to a 21-0 lead en route to a 31-18 victory over the top-ranked Buckeyes. The win was Wisconsin Head Coach Bert Bielema’s first against a top 10 team, and keeps Wisconsin’s hopes alive for a Rose Bowl. The Buckeyes national title hopes are effectively dashed, as they now sit fourth in the Big 10. Read the rest of this entry »



College Football Week 4 Review: Boise Passes Test, But Can They Get Help?

Sugar Ray LeonardWith the fourth week of college football behind us, here are the biggest stories from the weekend:

1. Boise Still Rolling: Boise State got their first taste of the ESPN College Gameday crew and did not disappoint, surviving several special teams mistakes and beating Oregon State 37-24. The Broncos remain third in the coaches’ poll, and closed their gap with #2 Ohio State ever so slightly. They still need either the Buckeyes or Alabama to lose at least once, but if those teams trip up, Boise could slide into one of the top two spots.

However, the biggest boost to the Broncos may be the emergence of the Nevada Wolfpack in the Top 25. Nevada is 4-0, ranked for the first time since 1948, and Colin Kapernick’s squad has a good shot at being 11-0 when they host Boise on November 26.

2. Tide Survives: Alabama almost relinquished the top spot in the polls against Arkansas, but down 20-7 in the third quarter at SEC rival Arkansas, the Crimson Tide showed why they’re the defending national champions, scoring the final 17 points, including the game-winning touchdown run by Mark Ingram with 3:18 to go. The Alabama defense also made a big statement, allowing just three points in the second half and intercepting Razorback quarterback Ryan Mallett three times. Read the rest of this entry »



Can Boise State Pass the Test? College Football Week 4 Preview

Boise StateWith conference play (mostly) upon us, there’s a full slate of compelling games for the fourth week of the college football season, so let’s take a look at the best of the best.

Reminder: All ranking reflect the USA Today coaches poll, which has a bearing on the BCS.

#1 Alabama at #11 Arkansas— Boy, Mark Ingram didn’t miss a step, did he? The Crimson Tide’s Heisman winner came back with a bang last week and lit up Duke in another easy ‘Bama win. This week promises to be more challenging, as the 11th-ranked Razorbacks figure needs to put up some points behind Heisman candidate Ryan Mallet, who has thrown for over 1,000 yards in three games. The game is the first of three straight contests the Tide will play against ranked conference foes. Read the rest of this entry »



Pants Optional for University of Oregon’s Frisbee Team

frisbeeIn the world of sports, there are rules to be followed.  These rules determine the playing surface, outline scoring methods, and even describe suitable uniforms. These rules are followed to allow for participation in a sporting event. In the case of the University of Oregon’s Ultimate Frisbee team, they decided to follow their own set of rules — no pants, no problem.

During a match at Oregon State University in Corvallis, five members of the University of Oregon’s team decided playing without pants or underwear would be a good decision. The ultimate Frisbee team was on probation at the time for actions involving underage drinking and noise violations toward the end of 2008. Read the rest of this entry »
