Go ahead and ‘kill’

I would like to add my support to Lizzie Laughman’s letter in which she encouraged the student body to put competition aside for the UConn game (“Be class, respectful,” Nov. 16). She’s right — even though we just lost to Navy for the second time in three years, our main concern should be not to hurt the opposing team’s feelings. Maybe we will win the coveted College Football Bowl Subdivision award for “Classiest Football Team” or “Nicest Student Body.” We can put that trophy right next to the Jeweled Shillelagh and all of the BCS trophies we’ve won recently.

Go Irish, Beat Huskies (but not too badly)!
