Kendall Marshall’s Wrist Injury Fractures His Hopes of Playing in Sweet 16

By Lacy J. Hansen

It was a bitter-sweet win and advancement to the Sweet 16 for the North Carolina Tar Heels last night. The team’s star player, Kendall Marshall, fractured his wrist during the game.

Marshall is referred to as North Carolina’s most indispensable player. He’s had an incredible season serving as the team’s starting point guard. In the NCAA tournament game against Creighton last night, Marshall fractured his right wrist as he was driving to the rim. It happened late in the game and Marshall actually continued playing with the injury.

There’s a reason Marshall is one of the nation’s top point guard – the sophomore scored 18 more points and earned 36 assists as he played another 36 minutes with a broken wrist.

After the Tar Heels claimed victory over Creighton and officially advanced to the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA tournament, Marshall showed his first signs of injury. He shook the other team’s hands with his left hand to protect his right. He was immediately taken for evaluation and discussion with his doctor and family. Read the rest of this entry »

Companies Target College Students by Using “Campus Evangelists”

American Eagle Outfitters LogoDo you remember moving into the dorms your freshman year? For me, it took about a gazillion trips up and down the elevators in order to get all of my stuff moved in, with only my parents to help. Lucky for Lelia Ismail, her freshman move-in experience at the University of North Carolina was a little bit easier. Why? Ismail had a team of upperclassmen who were all dressed in identical American Eagle Outfitters clothes to help her move in to her dorm room.

Wait a second: isn’t college about finding your own identity and expressing yourself as an individual? Why would these upperclassmen all be wearing the exact same thing? Because they are “campus evangelists” for the popular teen clothing store.

The Top 5 College Fight Songs

college band“Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, Boomer Sooner, OK U!”

Okay, so my school’s fight song isn’t really creative, but it sure does get the crowd ready for a football game, especially when there are 80,000 fans singing it. Sadly enough, it turns out that the University of Oklahoma‘s fight song was inspired by the songs that students sing at Yale University and the University of North Carolina, but hey, I still like it.

Almost every school has a fight song that students and fans sing at sporting events. These fight songs have two main purposes: get the home-team excited and intimidate the competition. Read the rest of this entry »
