For those of you who don't know, is also known as "The Northwestern Mafia" because of the insane number of NU alums who work here. So it was only a matter of time before one of them discovered the school's Gossip Girl-esque blog. We didn't know blogs were allowed to have two slogans, but Rumor and Royalty's are both so good ("Drama's a drug. Catch the addiction" and "The scandalous world of NU's elite") we'll let it slide.

Twelve in the Box? Play Away!

We can learn two things from World of Issac's post on the ASU-Georgia game: It takes more than 11 men to stop Knowshon Moreno and the Pac-10 refs are still searching for their A-game.

Check Out Jarrett Lee's Throwing Motion

If Jarrett Lee wanted to know what happens to freshmen college quarterbacks with longish hair and lots of potential, he should have asked Jimmy Clausen. Clearly he didn't, though, and now the backup-turned-LSU-hero has beer pong pictures on The Big Lead, too.

Revenge is a Dish Best Served Itchy

If you're a sick, twisted monster looking to exact revenge on a lover-turned-enemy, boy does LSU's student paper have a tip for you. Head on over to, where you can purchase colonies of crabs for infecting whomever you please. The Daily Reveille knew you'd ask, so it's already provided the answer: No, knowingly infecting someone with crabs doesn't seem to be a legally punishable offense. God help us all.

Say it Aint So(fa)

In a move destined to negatively impact lazy college students everywhere, the Lincoln, Neb., city council has banned porch couches and other outdoor furniture. How are college kids supposed to enjoy their cookouts and front-yard beer pong tournaments without porch furniture?

We Get the Message

If George O'Leary keeps pushing his players and accidentally associating himself with phone sex lines, his reputation's going to take a serious hit.
