Horns Down: Manziel's non-punishment

The NCAA has said that it can’t prove that Texas A&M University quarterback Johnny Manziel was paid thousands of dollars for signing autographs. Consequently, he’s been suspended for only half a game. Maybe they should have just required him to wear a dunce hat and called it a day? 

Horns Up: Fast food workers on strike

Fast food workers in Austin, Dallas, Houston and dozens of other cities across the country are organizing a strike today to lobby for a raised minimum wage. With the current minimum wage set at $7.25 an hour, we believe it’s high time workers started the discussion about how, exactly, such a wage can support a single person, let alone a family. Consequently, we’re more than willing to forgo those fries and support the cause.

Horns Down: The never-ending Briggo coffee line 

As new students swarmed campus for the first day of class, the incoming freshmen began to crowd more than classrooms: Briggo, the friendly coffee-making robot in the FAC, at one point had a queue that kept customers waiting for over 20 minutes. We admire your enthusiasm, Class of 2017, but must you clog up the coffee line?
