Texas Tech, playing in its first Final Four, has reached the national championship game against Virginia. Chris Beard’s team has used a suffocating defense to slay Michigan, Gonzaga, and Michigan State in consecutive games. Fans are understandably riled up. Some too riled up.

The administration, bracing for a very happy or very disappointed reaction to Monday night’s game, has taken the proactive step of cancelling all classes from 5 p.m. tomorrow until Wednesday.

That sound you hear is a campus about to live like tomorrow will never come. And students who made the trip to Minneapolis breathing a sigh of relief that they don’t have to worry about some sort of dumb humanities course work.

YOLO, Red Raiders. Make the most of it.
