Assistant Sports Editor promotes cheating

As a member of the Den the last 2 years, I have camped out at many of the basketball games.  This includes big camp-outs and the not so popular Oregon St. camp-outs.   Reading the Daily Bruin yesterday,  I was quite upset with Jason Feder's article on his  GameDay experience.  

You sit down with some onion rings and a cheeseburger with everything but onions, without even realizing the irony of what you just ordered. It's 1 a.m. on Friday night. There will be no more roll calls at the Pauley Pavilion campout, and electing to sleep in your own bed instead of on a cold chair is an easy choice. A burger on the way back is a no-brainer.

With ESPN nationally broadcasting SportsCenter and College GameDay from Pauley six hours from now, you can rest easy.

It is pretty easy to cheat the system at a campout.  If you have ever attended one, you know that the last roll call is done around 12-12:30.  That means you are free to do whatever you want until 6:30, when they pass out the priority numbers.  I can tell you right now that camping out is not fun.  It is cold, the ground is hard, and it sucks to get up early.  However, this is all part of the experience.  I would NEVER, and have NEVER, cheated at a campout.  I feel that staying for the campout makes it seem that you earned your spot in the front of the student section.  It is not fair to all of the people that stay out in the cold.

It is absolutely amazing that the assistant sports editor would write an article saying that he cheated at a campout.  This just promotes other people to cheat.
