Say It Ain't So, Joe McDonnell

Bad news hit Razorbackland today: the NCAA has vacated two of the 4,000 national championships won by the university's storied track and field program. We are beyond shocked to hear of wrongdoing in a college athletic program. In fact, a couple of our staffers fainted upon hearing the news and had to be revived with smelling salts. Their heart rates are still elevated, but, overall, they appear to be recovering nicely and should be back at their sub-minimum wage/no-health-insurance jobs in no time.

To be honest, I have never been that interested in track and field (although perhaps I should be: I imagine Hog track fans have a much happier outlook on life than those more inclined to follow the basketball and football teams). Still, we realize the import of today's development and therefore sent some of our staff out to capture the "man in the street" reaction. To view an arresting photo that one of them snapped of a man hearing today's news for the first time, click the "read on" button below:
