  1. How many students does it take to change a light bulb?

    At Cal, it takes four–one to change the bulb and three to debate the environmental impact.

    At Stanford, it doesn’t take any because Stanford students expect the world to revolve around them.

  2. I can’t stand what’s become of the PAC-10 (err, 12) football schedule. It was bad enough when they started having rolling start times, not announcing them until the week of the game so as to let TV dictate what they needed. College football should start at 1:00 on Saturday afternoon — moving it around to Thursdays and Fridays or at 6:00 PM…that’s all revenue generating hogwash at the expense of the fans who actually go to games.

    This, though — this Big Game at the halfway point of the season –that’s just wrong. Heck, Stanford’s only been in session for about three weeks — the students aren’t even in peak drinking form yet. The sweet tradition of the PAC-10 season — play 9 Saturday afternoons against everyone in the league, finish league play with your arch-rival, and send the league champ to the Rose Bowl — that’s the way it should be.

    On the plus side, Stanford is still going to work the DGBs and that’s definitely the way it should be 😉
