Odds and Ends: Wisconsin students must prepare for sober football

Bad news for drunken Badger fans; the University of Wisconsin-Madison decided to continue their 2007 “Show and Blow” campaign which requires students who were previously busted for getting tanked at a home football game to blow into a Breathalyzer unit to get in. Of course, you gotta pass the test to enter (blowing .00 for underage students and under .08 for those over 21).

When asked for reaction to the renewal of the program, almost every student on campus responded, “This blows!”

Wisconsin Band on double secret probation

We hope they didn’t violate Bucky

No one knows what exactly the Wisconsin Band did on their road trip to the Michigan game last month but it was enough to get them indefinite probation. Univesity of Wisconsin’s chancellor John Wiley called it behavior “that can be seen as anything from boorish and offensive to patently dangerous and unlawful.” Wiley also threatened to suspend the band’s travel activities and remove the director if he got any more reports of “gratuitous vulgarity, sexualized banter or joking, hazing, or other forms of demeaning conduct.” Sounds like a great time on that road trip.

The “Personal and Confidential” letter was released to the AP (go figure) but even some members of the band don’t know exactly what happened. Chancellor Wiley’s special aide Casey Nagy said the offenses were repeat violations of the code of conduct despite earlier warnings from the adminsitration but would not elaborate. If it’s one thing we’ve learned from “hazing” incidents is that they usually involve foreign objects and a rectum. Remember the good old days at band camp when girls would just stick a flute in their vaginas?
