At this point, it's pretty clear that Sabrina Ionescu is one with the force. Check out our remake of the legendary opening crawl using all of her college accomplishments. But be warned, this might take a while.
The Beavers are bringing balance to the force, pointing out that the good guys always wear orange, but also recognizing the ruthless power of the dark side from their women's gymnastics account.

They say the Sith always come in pairs: a master and an apprentice. Well, we're pretty sure no one bows to Darth Chip. The Buffs also dropped an amazing edit with "The Buffalorian". This is the way.

Listen, we're pretty sure a lightsaber would obliterate a golf ball, but far be it from us to tell Utah golf how to have a good time. How many strokes are you penalized for hitting one into the Sarlacc pit?

Cal baseball jumped to light speed with this graphic. It's got us wondering how many parsecs it would take for the Millenium Falcon to round the bases.
