The Bayer Necessities: Unnecessary Roughness

Five years ago, my mom bought me a Ben Roethlisberger jersey and said, “Go Steelers.” She told me to wear it on game days to support the Black and Gold. What she didn’t say was, “Here, Bri – take this jersey and emulate Big Ben’s moral code.” In fact, it would’ve been strange if she…

That's what See said: Streak up or die, there is no try

Being the jaded senior that I am, I often ask myself questions about how on top of their game the student body is. I hear a lot of students say that they don’t read the All-Stu anymore, which means a couple things. One, they should probably rename it to the Some-Stu at this point, and…

E-mail, a class…

Tim's Turn: I’ve reached the breaking point

I love the Cleveland Browns. I can’t say that enough or with enough enthusiasm. It’s sickening how much I love them. 
I love them. I love them. I love them. You get the point.
But it’s getting to be quite clear that they don’t love me back and it’s getting old.
Every Sunday it’s the…

OurView: A farmer’s life is not a life for me

“Danny, you should probably start looking for a job.”
Gee, thanks Mom.
