To prove it, they scheduled a softball game featuring the faculty and staff against their students whom they teach Monday through Friday.
Jokes were cracked early by Mark Camphouse, chair of the School of Music, saying students would receive F's if the faculty did not win.
Needless to say, no fails will be given to the students who battled their professors on the sunny afternoon on Intramural Field 1.
The Faculty/Staff team scored 14-straight runs in the final three innings to take down the future leaders of the world 26-20 in the nine inning classic.
Leading 15-12 entering the seventh, the students surrendered six runs to the Faculty/Staff and they were unable to recover from the deficit.
The bats of the Faculty/Staff were too much for the band of students, but at game's end, everybody said "Good game," took team photos, and everybody was happy with how well this great event was.
The Faculty/Staff lead the all-time series 1-0, with hopefully many more games to come in the future!
