- From Ohio University to Washington State, UConn to T
ennessee, student disturbances this spring
have prompted school officials, alumni and community members to look back on their own college
days. Whether those days came in the live-and-let-live '80s, the Vietnam-era '60s and '70s or the
more conservative, prank-happy '40s and '50s, the talk at water coolers and Little League games
suggests folks just don't get the latest spate of campus uprisings.

As it is during many springs, the weather had been cool and wet in Athens in May 1968. Then came

24-hour period, causing the area's worst flood in 55 years.

Smart alecks on campus used to find easy prey in the Ohio University football team. One barb always good for a chuckle: "The Ohio University football team hasn't won a championship since the Jo
hnson administration. That's Lyndon, not Andrew." But while it's true the Bobcats haven't won a Mid-American Conference (MAC) championship since the fall of 1968 30 years ago the wise guys on campus have had to find a new target. Ohio University football is no longer a joke.
