Too Cold To Riot?
A blog post today by the CDT’s Bob Heisse said that the weather this weekend would be too cold for students to celebrate a win over Michigan State in the same style as the infamous Ohio State celebration. While I agree with the writer of the piece that there will not be destruction of private property, I think that the reasons there won’t be are different. For one, the Ohio State game was an away one, meaning that the rioters watched the game on TV before proceding outside to Beaver Canyon. This Saturday’s game is a 3:30 home game. Thus, the majority of the students that would riot would be in Beaver Stadium, a place that is pretty inhospitable to rioting. May we see people storm the field? Perhaps, but there will be no serious rioting to speak of. If you need a reminder of what serious rioting is, look no further.
