I was thinking the same thing earlier when I was sitting at -1, but the staff has always coached the commentariat to be patient, let the play develop, and see what the total up/down vote tally is later in the day and you will be rewarded...

As the Man, the Myth, the Legend Woody Hayes was known to say, "There's nothing that cleanses your soul like getting the hell kicked out of you."  And as much as I hope to win tonight (and for the record, I think it will be a very good game), even if we do lose, we will be losing to a good team, and we will be better for it!

I know that was a not-so-subtle jab at greek life, and I very much so resent it.  Im greek, and I pay for 75% of my school, all of my living expenses and everything else.  So please, do me a favor, and quit making stupid generalizations.  Yes, their are some entitled assholes in greek life, but that doesn't mean all of us are...

In my humble (but experienced in this arena) opinion, you are completely right.  The most dangerous part of the night is not the act of actually jumping into mirror lake, it's getting there.  If you've ever participated, you know that EVERYONE is running towards mirror lake between about 1030 and 130, and people just run across high street without even looking.  We have always taken at least one person with us that stays sober to hold our stuff and watch out for us, so we don't drunkenly get hit by a car on High street.

They clean it out after each jump since I've been here, and usually its pretty clean, it gets all muddy and mucky when the leaves drop in the Fall, and they accumulate at the bottom of the lake and decompose and get nasty.  Thats where the mud is from (as well as mud being dragged in on peoples feet during the jump).

I don't necessarily agree completely with the OP, but since this is inherently a forum site, why is it a problem that he posted the topic?  If you don't like it, move to something different, and shortly this topic will die and be forgotten.

+1 for the Sophisticated Monty Python and the Holy Grail reference...well played, sir.

 You're joking, right? Going from Gee to Drake is an obvious downgrade, and Drake has done nothing but make his situation worse since he's arrived here.
