The Perfect Season: Patriots Or Panthers?

Will one team win it all, or both fall from glory?

The Perfect Season: Patriots Or Panthers?

The NFL set a record when there were six undefeated teams by the time week six came about. But the pack had to be thinned out. Now it’s week 11 out of 16 with only the Carolina Panthers and the New England Patriots. At this point, the question isn't in a playoff sport, but whether or not the season is perfect. A perfect regular season is nothing new for Tom Brady and the Patriots as they won all 16 games in 2007 as well as both of their playoff games only to fall to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl for a record of 18-1-0. The Patriots nearly lost to the Giants this year winning by one point, and if they can get past the Peyton Manning-less Denver Broncos they are one week closer to an undefeated season.

Now on the topic of the Panthers, Cam Newton has led the Panthers to victory in season filled with touchdown dances, with their closest win being a four point win over the Seattle Seahawks. The Panthers are a younger team that has been coming into its own since Newton arrived in 2011. With a tight defense and a well-oiled offense the team has earned its undefeated status, but the rest of the season won’t be easy with the Saints, Falcons, Giants and the Buccaneers all looking to end that streak.

There is an optimism in believing that both teams will make it to the Superbowl and the better team will be crowned, but in a year where undefeated streaks have reached an expiration date (the Undertaker, Ronda Rousey, and the four former undefeated teams from week six) we can only wait and see which one of the mighty fall first and who makes it all the way.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
