Great Moments In Academic History

Outstanding yeoman's work from The Seattle Times' Bud Withers, who, apropos of nothing, decided to chronicle various college athlete amusing misdeeds from throughout the years. Our favorites include the tennis player hopping from car hood to car hood waving his racket around, the Cincinnati player who tortured his roommate over a debt and the Oregon State football players who tried to settle up their own debt in an inventive manner.

Two OSU players were arrested for trying to pay a $20 cab fare with marijuana. The cabbie said he was roughed up and that running back Jimtavis Walker also threw a hamburger at him.

Those are all fine and good, but we find it amazing that Withers missed the greatest of all athlete campus crimes: The brilliance of Najeh Davenport, Hamper Shitter.
