The following entry was written by ESPN anchor and MU alumnus John Anderson.  This was originally posted on his blog back in 2008.  With the college football season kicking off today, I thought it would be fitting to pass along to our readers.

"With the college football season kicking off this week, here's my...

*10 point college refresher course.*

Big, quiet place with all the books is the library.  Big, loud place with all the people is the football stadium.

The football stadium.

The library.

Eating in the cafeteria is risking illness.  Eating in the parking lot is tailgating.

Studying Sunday through Thursday makes you smarter.  Campus parties on Fridays and games on Saturdays make you more well rounded.

Cuddly looking thing with a giant mascot head holding a child is the mascot.

Cuddly looking thing with a giant mascot head holding a #2 pencil is Lee Corso.

A game program is a course syllabus with advertising and a depth chart.

Academic departments have benefactors.

Athletics departments have donors.

The hardest class to skip is the first one.  The easiest class is generally offered by the geology department.

Distinguished looking 40 year old riding a bicycle is a professor.  Distinguished looking 40 year old driving the Cadillac Escalade is the head coach.

Co-eds will go out with you after a win if you are wearing school colors.  Co-eds will not go out with you after a win if you are painted school colors.

While certainly showing their school spirit, these guys won't be getting the girls according to Anderson.

When looking for co-eds, transfer to Ole Miss.

You are now ready for class and kickoff."
