Help Me Pick The Year’s Top Stories

It was a huge year for the Republic Tigers, so I thought it would be fun to look back on some of the top stories.  I’ve put together a list of the biggest stories of the year, and we’ll eventually vote on them to compile a Top 10 list.  But first, I need your help. Check the list, and make sure I haven’t missed anything obvious before I put together the poll and start the voting! If you think of another story, please add it in the comments (or email me if you’re not on Facebook).
