Haylor wins, threesome lose

GOOD
During the past couple years, the news regarding Mustangs football coach Larry Haylor hasn't always been positive, but nobody can deny his success on the football field. Haylor has guided the Mustangs to 154 victories, breaking Dave Tuffy' Knight's Canadian Interuniversity Sport record of 153 wins.

Amazingly, after chalking up a plethora of wins, one of Haylor's most important may come this weekend when he tries to guide his squad to a victory over the Queen's Golden Gaels, who used the Mustangs as play toys last year in their 55-20 victory in the Ontario University Athletics semi-final in Kingston.

The Mustangs have circled this date for the past year, refusing to be embarrassed once again. Hopefully the home advantage will help and cap one hell of a two weeks for Mr. Haylor.

BAD
Threesomes are cool, there's no disputing that. But the triple-rooming at Delaware Hall just isn't good for anybody. Frosh, who are living in tiny rooms already, are crammed even further in their sardine cans.

Due to the double cohort class, Housing decided to offer triple rooms in Delaware for a reduced rate, installing bunk beds in the rooms for sleeping arrangements. On a positive note, the arrangement seems more beneficial than housing students in hotels and storage rooms, as is the case at many other universities, but the arrangement, to put it bluntly, still truly sucks for the frosh on campus.

The reaction thus far from frosh has been tame, but just wait until exam time when frosh are strung out on caffeine and space is as precious as gold. The frosh week mentality will have worn off and soaring off the top bunk like Jimmy Supa Fly Snuka will seem like their only response.

If only Housing yielded the power to join Britney, Madonna and Xtina into the ultimate threesome, all would be forgiven. Reality sucks.

UGLY
We may not be the Globe and Mail, but even us lowly student journalists deserve a break.

On Wed., Sep. 3, The Gazette was denied access to Ontario Conservative Premier Ernie Eves' campaign stop at Spencer Hall. A media representative at the PC Party campaign headquarters apologized afterwards for the incident, but hindsight is 20/20.

Access to university is a major issue surrounding the provincial election this year and students are clearly interested in the answers our provincial political leaders can provide to our queries regarding tuition increases, among other issues.

The event that transpired last Wednesday was ugly and hopefully it won't be repeated.
