Not that I've never dropped the F-bomb, but during our first meeting, you should always watch your language.


Also, I had a guy who I hadn't met last night, tell me "later homie" as he left the house.
That could be the Southern Gentlemen in us.

Giving examples of recent rushees that came through his house, and their faux pas.

Poll Question: Would you wear jorts as your main outfit staple for ONE YEAR to insure your schools football team won the BCS title?

Rushee #1: We found out he was dropped by another fraternity last semester for motorboating an unwilling girl at a social. Wow.

Wow indeed. I would've punched him right in the face.

Oh alright I thought you were calling georgia titletown. and yeah i think everybody in the south knows about jortsville.

And I think the worst thing I've seen during rush we had a guy come in with this outline of a this shitty looking tatoo. Our chapter is not big on tatoos so it was already going to be tough for but he pretty much sealed it when he announced he didnt have the money to get it finished.

And PhiGam you're right, you'd get laughed out of town for croakies out here too. I'm shocked people still wear them at all.
I have seen Croakies quite a bit in California.

Yes. I ran into the same thing once when I was rush chairman a long time ago. Rush moved very fast that fall and we pledged in the mid-40s which was the largest on campus at that time. There was some whining about the pledge class being too big. I had kept records of who had accepted their bids and on what night. I could tell you in order who had pledged and when during rush week. When someone complianed about too many pledges, I turned the compliant on its head. I said, "OK, here's the list. How many do you think we should have - 40? 35? 25? - if we had stopped pledging guys on Thursday night, here are the ones we would not have now. Do you like these guys? Do you think they are impressive?"
You'll never go wrong framing rush to the chapter in terms of "quality" vs. numbers. There's always room for another good man. Especially at the University of Florida where you are, it's dangerous for a fraternity that wants to be competitive to start thinking in terms of being too big. Especially with your beautiful new house, you need to have at least - at the very minimum - twice the number of men in the chapter that you need to fill the house.
And the "percentage of bid acceptance" business is - if you'll pardon me, I mean no disrespect - a loser's game. Trust me. We used to frustrate one rival in rush so badly, we beat them every time, so they created the "bid percentage" thing to make themselves feel better. Every good fraternity says they get everybody they wanted. It's not true. In a rough & tumble rush no one gets everyone they want. When you start playing the "percentage of bid acceptance" game what happens in reality is that the memebrs begin to concentrate on that number. They won't give a man a bid unless they're sure he'll accept becasue they don't want to dilute the number. That's a good way to get beat, and soundly.
Don't talk about a "top 20" rushees; instead talk about quality and leave the goal number of the pledge class vague. Brothers will respond to talk of quality. And when you get a big class they'll be happy. If you get a small class or a disappointing class, the members will tend to rationalize (bid acceptance percentage) instead of making the changes necessary to make the chapter competitive again.

I can't find one now, but we have shirts in blue that say "Bulldawgs eat their own poop".


And to answer your question, yes I would wear jorts for a year if it would win my team the BCS.
AMEN! Love the shirt, btw. And if I were a Florida fan, the blue one would be funny.
