No, they weren't making that s*** up. At least not when they made Animal House in the late '70s.
Welcome to a slice of Louisiana State University as it was when I attended there. As a matter of fact The Real Animal House (above) was filmed there when I was a freshman. And the film didn't touch on half of the stories we heard about Delta Kappa Epsilon fraternity -- the Dekes.
There was the time the Dekes got stiffed by a sorority for a formal, and then they sent over boxes of doughnuts, and. . . . No, can't tell that one.
And then, one time the Dekes. . . . No, can't tell that one either.
But there was the one thing about the deaf school and transistor radios. And the "generic" homecoming display for one (among many) of Jerry Stovall's lesser products as LSU football coach. I think that one got them on probation.
The only thing you have to know about your Mighty Favog, though, is that he considered all this pretty normal. Back in the day.
