Worst Recent Decision by an ASU Frat Boy?
We're sure the frat boys at Arizona State University make poor decisions on an hourly basis, but there have been some extraordinarily poor decisions made recently by the bros.
One might imagine that a fraternity member's accidental death late last year might be a bit of a wake-up call for the frat boys, but police have dealt with several cases of frat boy stupidity in just the last few months.

In March, frat boy Andrew Kent decided to toss a bottle of Everclear into a bonfire at a Sigma Phi Epsilon party in Tempe, according to police. That sent flaming alcohol onto an 18-year-old female student, and a 17-year-old girl, a prospective student.
The girl had second- and third-degree burns over as much as 14 percent of her body, and had to be treated at a burn center. Kent faces aggravated-assault charges.
Last month, two guys who went to pick up a high school girl from a Delta Kappa Epsilon party in Tempe were told by frat boys to leave, and the two groups started fighting with each other.
Later that night, the non-frat boys returned with guns and baseball bats. Although no one was shot, five ASU students were hospitalized with various injuries, including one beaten with the bat.
Then there was the ol' tequila-drinking contest between Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternity members, held this weekend.
One guy -- who had 20 shots of tequila, then "everything after that was a blur" -- was hospitalized, with his eyes rolling into the back of his head, and choking on his own vomit. He had a blood-alcohol level of .47 -- which is more than high enough to be deadly.
His frat bros were kind enough to stick a Post-it note on him, put him in a wheelchair, and roll him into the lobby of the hospital, before abandoning him.
So, which one of these sounds like the worst decision?
