"Northwestern fans can be both heartened and disheartened by the loss to Minnesota just like how nineteenth-century resurrectionists were heartened when they pried a heart from a freshly-buried corpse and then disheartened it when they sold it to a disreputable anatomist."

Mary Markley Dormitory
November 17, 1977
I lived in Markley and I'm ashamed that we never did that.
They just went around banging on everybody's door, telling them to either have their lights on or off at 9:00-9:15. No one really knew what it was about until we went outside.
Then it was awesome.
Edit: Current residents of Markley, you have until Friday night. The torch is passed to a new generation.
Thanksgiving break. Maybe some staying in town could get the staff to help set this up? otherwise, maybe next week or before break begins? I say this just stays up for the whole year. Especially if (when) we win.
and we did some of that, err, like the first part.
I can now say I am proud I lived in Markley, though not in 1977.
But this deserves a thread of it's own. Or at least a spot in one of the front page posts, or minimum a Hate Thread. Repost this someplace else. You deserve the double posbang for it.
That is fantastic. Efforts like this never happen anymore. What has happened to our creativity?
That column ceased being worthwhile when Tom Orr stopped doing it. Now it's just a longer version of an OSU message board.
The only reason to read it now is to get your hate on. But I prefer not to antagonize myself like that.
Of course, the douches at M Zone all love it and thinks its totally "objective." WTF??
Gee, I wonder what side of the "Fire Dick Rod!" fence they're on?
I love how they try to blame the drops on RR and his system. Like it's not the WRs job to catch the pass or anything.
Don't let jmblue or M16 hear you say that. It is RR fault for everything, everywhere, all the time.
How about we open up a case of woop ass instead?
Ugh, I lived in Markley 99-00 and I'm furious we didn't do that!
Another Markley alumnus (98-99) checking in and mad we didn't do that.
