WSU cancels classes for Halloween football game vs. ASU

What will these people come up with on Halloween after not going to classes and filling up their afternoon with ... activities? - James Snook-US PRESSWIRE

President Elson Floyd knew what he was up against. So he made the only sensible choice.

In what might be the most WSU thing in the history of WSU things, President Elson Floyd announced Thursday that the school will cancel classes on the afternoon of Thursday, Oct. 31, in advance of that night's televised football game against Arizona State.

Additionally, he said that attendance at morning classes will be at the discretion of faculty.

A less cynical person would note that Pullman more or less has to change everything to accommodate the influx of people into the city when there is a football game. Floyd said this is "opportunity to share the beauty of our unique Pullman campus before a national television audience in a broadcast carried by one of the ESPN family of networks," and that this is "part of our efforts to ensure the safety and ease of travel throughout campus for faculty, staff, students and fans,"

However, we all know what's really going on: A not insignificant number of students probably were going to blow off their afternoon classes anyway in an effort to get their prefunk on. Now they don't have to make that agonizing choice between their afternoon chem lab and that case of Busch Light that's calling their name.

Night football game ... canceled classes ... Halloween ...

There's really no way this isn't going to be epic, right?
