In Hindsight, We All Should Have Gone To School In The SEC

Almost every single day, one way or another, I'm reminded that going to school in the north was terrible, terrible idea. Everyone's better looking, the food's 200% more unhealthy, you can go out pretty much every night of the week, and winter doesn't exist. Covering college football just makes the point that much more obvious.

The president of Mississippi State, Mark E. Keenum, canceled Thursday’s classes months ago in anticipation of a night game against No. 3 Louisiana State. Early Wednesday morning, fans began lining a grassy area known as the Junction, waiting for a chapel bell to ring at 5 p.m. so they could officially begin tailgating more than 24 hours before kickoff.

No class? 24 hour tailgates? Come on, man. Now they're just taunting the rest of us.
