Radford is next to last in the conference, and the out of conference competition has been a huge challenge, as well. The Highlanders have played the likes of South Carolina, VCU, Virginia Tech and Richmond, all teams either ranked in the top 25 or on the verge of a national ranking.

The lawsuit is actually filed on behalf of a public interest group.
The suit claims that Trans-Fat which gives the cookies their creamy filling is too dangerous.
According to the U-S Department of Agriculture Doctors believe trans fat is linked to several debilitating diseases.

Trans Fat is in about 40 percent of all the food on grocery store shelves.
