Chris Del Conte, TCU AD, on his school’s exodus from the Mountain West to the Big East before being redirected to the Big 12 over the last 2 years: “We’re like the Israelites.  After 40 years we’re just finding our way.”

From the other calendar, these passages written by High School students in essays:

“Single-Parent families are those in which a child has only one biological parent.”

Happy Birthday to Rod Stewart

“Edgar Allen Poe and Samuel Taylor Coleridge were similar in that when they wrote, nothing was modern yet.”

“If I had a time machine and could speak to anyone, alive or dead, I would pick the live one.”

Happy Birthday to  Rod Stewart!

And this hot one from the Miami Press release, previewing tonight’s game against UNC: “Miami was picked to finish 5th in the ACC, Virginia was picked to win it.”

From nightlines, Jay Leno:  “According to a poll, 55% of college students approve of the job President Obama is doing.  That may change when they graduate and try to find a job.”
