I disagree strongly with the characterization of University Scholars as promoting laziness among its students, allowing them to “cop-out” of “difficult courses” required by other majors.
Upset and dismayed. Though not the emotions one usually feels when leaving Chapel, they describe what I felt after hearing guest speaker Jeremy Courtney on Feb. 17.
It makes me angry to see so many empty seats. Where are the people? Where are the students?
Gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott shouldn’t load the confetti cannons quite yet. Sen. Wendy Davis should be seen as a legitimate challenger for governor. Danny Huizinga’s Feb 2 column titled “Abbott best for Texas,” quotes Abbott when he says “I bring a complete different style and perception that will connect differently

While I support the opinion expressed in the Lariat’s recent editorial “Talent should yield an NFL roster spot,” on gay NFL draft prospect Michael Sam that ran on Feb. 19, the language used by the editors needs to change.
Whatever happened to the long-standing tradition of “That Good Old Baylor Line” where we are to “fling our green and gold afar as long as stars shall shine”? Have the stars quit shining? Apparently so, for there was not even a hint of green or gold on the football uniforms

My impression is that the current Lariat staff keeps the tradition of excellence alive. I know the Lariat has won numerous state-wide awards.
We had some good times, some bad times and some times that felt like the aftereffects of a Gut Pak.
You were merciless, Floyd — beyond merciless. In my lifetime, you ate former Baylor coach Kevin Steele, skin and bone, as Baylor went 1-31 in the Big 12 conference during his tenure. You then, like the Sirens of ancient Greece, coaxed Guy Morriss, the deemed “savior” on his motorcycle, into your depths, only to devour his very soul and sabotage what had been an up-and-coming coaching career (If anyone can get a hold of Guy Morriss’ motorcycle, we should burn it in the final game).
