Coaches are paid millions of dollars while schools raise ticket prices for their fans, many of whom swear until their dying breaths that the coaches are "worth every penny of it." It's not a pretty world.

• One of the frankest explanations we've heard from Republicans on what the party needs to do to revitalize itself nationally came from Haley Barbour, the former governor of Mississippi and former chairman of the Republican National Committee. Said the folksy Barbour, "We've got to give our political organization a very serious proctology exam. We need to look everywhere."

Now more than ever… shop locally

As the fall rolls on and tests pile up, many students begin changing their daily routine to one that is more study friendly and, unfortunately, usually more deskbound.
