Meaty Tidbits: Rumors, News and Proposals

1. Freshman Gender Disparity. "Mrs." Degree in decline. This WacoTrib article discusses the increasing gender imbalance of Baylor incoming freshman, citing that in Fall 2006 the incoming class was 62% Female! That is nearly 2/3 of the class, which means that in a perfect world, almost 1/3 of Baylor women have no chance at attaining the coveted Mrs. degree. While this does mean that the BearMeat Editorial Board will have our "pick of the litter" when it comes time for selecting interns from the pool of applicants (we have wisely required a full-body, swimsuit photo for all applications), it also means that the B is one step closer to turning into Mary Hardin-Baylor, historically a women's college - now with similar gender numbers.

Better pray those cowpokes aren't
of the Brokeback variety, girls

2. Mamadou Wants to Play Point Guard, Bruce Wants to Play Post. In two revealing profiles on the BU Athletics site, Mamadou expressed his desire to run the point for the Gentlemen Bears and revealed his likes and dislikes, in a similar profile Aaron Bruce reveals his wish to play center. Since Mamadou has proven ineffective down-low and Bruce accounts for most of our points in the paint, we endorse this plan wholeheartedly. It's not like it will jeopardize any win streak of ours, and will most likely cut down on turnovers. We've always seen Mamadou more as a Senegalese Magic Johnson and Aaron Bruce more of a Charles Barkley type. The profiles are rather amusing and serve as windows into the soul of both of our immigrant Bears.

I smell a role-reversal movie in the works!

3. A New Guest Contributor. In BearMeat's attempt to obey the injunction mandating our Title IX compliance, we want to welcome the first non-permanent member of the BearMeat Editorial Board, Mrs. Kokernot. Mrs. Kokernot, the namesake of the popular dorm, will bring a much-needed Victorian perspective to a semi-regular column, Lady Business, which will comment on etiquette, feminine virtue, and the Lady Bears. We hope that this will attract more female readers and will keep Judge Ralph Strother from shutting us down.

Kokernot: Please, No "Freakernot" Jokes
