Don’t know how to make a sign? No Problem, its easy!
Step 1: Find something to write on
It could be a poster board, cardboard box, or even yourself! You just need to find a writing surface to help your ideas come alive.
Step 2: Find something to write with
If we are making a basic poster, we usually just use markers. But you can use all sorts of things when making a sign. From spray paint to body paint, to computer generated designs, as long as it’s “loud” and will get noticed it will look great!
Step 3: Figure out ideas for your sign
We like to do this step with friends. Get your friends together and think of the most creative ideas possible.
Step 4: Make your sign
Once you have the first three steps done, it’s time to start making your sign! Make sure it is clear and legible, which is a common problem for us!
Step 5: Bring your sign to ESPN College Game Day
Be loud and use that sign to get you airtime on ESPN.
Oregon Students Honor UCLA’s Nick Pasquale by Shannon Hartley
On Saturday, when the Ducks take on the Bruins, many students will be wearing blue ribbons in respect for Nick Pasquale, a former UCLA football player who passed away in early September after being struck by a car.
In light of the competitive atmosphere and excitement that is sure to ensue within the walls of Autzen Stadium (predominantly from the student section), we are asking students to bear the blue ribbon in respect for Pasquale and his family.
As a redshirt freshman this season, Pasquale, who was mainly a scout team player, saw his first playing time in UCLA’s home opener against Nevada on the last offensive drive.
When teammates heard about the news of Pasquale’s death, several took to Twitter to share their condolences and describe the character of their former teammate.
Bruins guard Xavier Su’a-Filo tweeted, “Love you PACMAN. Brother for life. The definition of a true team player. Came to practice every day ready to work and give his all for his teammates.”
"Nick was an outstanding young man who had a positive impact on everyone who knew him,” said Bruins head coach Jim Mora said, according to UCLABruins.com. “He was a great teammate who was loved and respected by his entire team.”
Ribbons for honoring Nick Pasquale may be provided at the stadium before the start of the game or students may bring their own.
REMEMBER: BE LOUD, BE CRAZY, BE RESPECTFUL!
