Last week, the university bussed me and a group of my fraternity brothers I to The Matilda Mossman (TU women’s head basketball coach) and Danny Manning (TU men’s head basketball coach) Radio Call-In Shows to a local restaurant. Showing our support for TU athletics is important to us. Eating dinner and talking sports with my brothers also made for a great evening. Shout out to Coach Manning who personally ordered us a cornucopia of appetizers. We’ll be sure to make it to future shows and games to show our support! #BlowCane
I know this post is a little delayed; about a month overdue, but if you haven’t heard TU won the 2012 Liberty Bowl! The team, students, fans, and alumni from all over ventured to Memphis for a weekend and New Year to remember. Thanks to the generous donation by alumni and friends of TU, other students and I were able to travel to Memphis on a budget. For only $40, I got a hotel room for two nights, a bowl game ticket, shuttles to and from the game, and shuttle rides to and from Beale Street and for only $25 more, I could have ridden the student bus from Tulsa to Memphis and back. Instead, some of my fraternity brothers and I chose to make this journey in my car.
A quick lunch stop at U.S. Pizza Co. in Little Rock was well worth the drive by itself. Best salad in the U.S. Anyone from Arkansas knows that this place is on point.
