Haylor wins, threesome
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

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.
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
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.
