How this was written a month ago and no one seemed to pick up on it is a mystery to me. Actually how I didn’t pick up on it is a mystery as well. But it’s never too late to protest. It’s never too late to fight.
According to the Daily Bruin
The short-lived but tremendously popular UCLA tradition known as Undie Run will no longer be allowed to continue the way it has in years past, school officials said Tuesday (Sept).
The event, which normally gleans between 3,000 and 7,000 patrons, has tentatively been rendered unsuitable due to safety and cost concern.
The numbers continue to grow dramatically. An overwhelming number of the people who are involved are not UCLA students. … They may be students at another college. We get a lot of USC students, we get a lot of community college students, we get a lot of people who are not students. We get a lot of gawkers … and so that’s a big problem,” Naples said.
Pictures after the jump
“We get a lot of Gawkers.” I love that. What do you expect buddy? People NOT watching college students run around wasted in their underwear? Come on guys! Give it a shot. If you get sponsors and advertisers, turn a profit, is it such a bad idea? This thing could be a festival.
Unfortunately if this is the case, and they do discontinue, then it was most appropriate that I’ve put together a large picture gallery of some of the best Undie Run shots UCLA has had over the years.
Say it aint so UCLA. At least we still have ASU’s Undie Run.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
