No, Tide stick. You use it to pretreat the bongwater stains on your shirts.

Along with Waving the Wheat & The Chant, it's always cool to watch the KU Marching Band come double-stepping down the north end zone stairways prior to the start of every football game.

"Now there is a government agency that mostly exist to monger fear and generate good retirement benefits for scientist who couldn't get a real job. The only thing they do well is to tell us the sky is falling."

Actually.... that would be the EPA.

Tied stick? C'mon Autie, you should know better, you old burnout. I've always enjoyed setting the Union on fire.

Most of the basketbal traditions have been ruined. Corporate sponsorship took care of that.

The wooing. It's a new tradition, but the best one ever.

Definitely not Late Night with Larry Brown featuring Bill Self, formerly featuring Roy Williams. I was in school for the first one in the 80's. I thought it was a one-off thing but know it's overblown and redundant.

Sororities girls. This time of year they come from all across the country and make Lawrence, on average, less ugly.

Renting a party bus then peeing in the corner on the way back from the Plaza.
