    From the LSU student newspaper: <a href="http://media.www.lsureveille.com/media/storage/paper868/news/2008/04/11/CampusBeat/Lsu-Officially.Grabs.Stanfords.Johnson.411-3319103.shtml">LSU official grabs Stanford's Johnson</a>

    Too awesome for words. (Unless I've committed an aggregious d_b.)

    I don't suspect it was an accident. Someone was giggling as he/she put that on a page.

    That one's pretty good, I also liked one I saw a couple years ago -- "Women's soccer team looks to fill holes"

    From the Stephen F. Austin State University student newspaper. The school mascot is the Lumberjacks. Headline atop a story about the football team taking a day off after a big practice:

    'Jacks off after scrimmage

    My all-time fave.

    If that paper has a faculty advisor, I'd be shocked if he/she let that through.

    If not, those kids are in for it when they graduate.

    My school paper had a faculty advisor, but they didn't check the pages before they went to press. They were only there to help handle legal issues or disputes with other departments on campus.

    This is the kind of shit that would get you fired in the real world.

    If the faculty advisor tried to catch every questionable thing in a student paper, he/she would never go home. Emptying the rec-center pool with a Dixie cup would be easier.

    My old advisor never caught one of my friend's favorite tricks, putting staff names deep in the golf agate. "Hey, I tied for 43rd at Greensboro! Woohoo!"

    Your school paper ran golf agate?

    Because it's only appropriate that a KU man post this one ...

    The KU rag had one about Mangino a few years back that was better... I can't remember it exactly, but it was pretty good...

    I don't remember what paper it ran in, but "Trojans put Beavers on the defensive" from a couple years ago was an all-timer...
