It’s that time of year again, Ball State. It’s time to elect a new executive slate for the Student Government Association. You have a big decision to make, one which will impact how SGA operates during the next school year and potentially for years to come.

“I love you” is a term I have said the most to people who aren’t my romantic partner. Ever since I was a child these words have referred to my friends, my family and even my roommate.

I saw Los Angeles punt on nine of its 12 possessions. I saw Bill Belichick and Tom Brady win their sixth ring together. What I didn’t see was the team that most deserved to be playing on the NFL’s biggest stage: the New Orleans Saints.
