MAYBE I SHOULD'VE known better, even though I had never attended Wing Bowl before yesterday's annual bacchanal at the Wells Fargo Center. After all, the debauchery of Wing Bowl long ago trumped its wholesome origins, in 1993, as a funny publicity stunt birthed by sports-radio jocks frustrated by Philly's lack of a Super Bowl win. The debauchery has been chronicled ad nauseum (yes, it's a pun) in this paper, on TV news and websites, via YouTube. So you could argue that there was no need for me to see firsthand what I was missing.

A 20-year-old University of Pennsylvania student alleged that she was raped at a fraternity party on campus over the weekend, police said yesterday. The assault allegedly occurred about 2 a.m. Saturday inside a house on the 3500 block of Locust Walk, said police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore. The woman had some prior interaction with the alleged assailant or may have learned of his identity after the alleged assault. "It's not a stranger type of situation," he said. The woman went to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania later that day, and the hospital contacted police, Vanore said.

Every once in a while during Friday's sold-out show at Johnny Brenda's, Dr. Dog revealed serious musicianship. Guitarists Scott McMicken and Frank McElroy would lock, in unison, into an intricate, swift melody line, sometimes mirrored by Zach Miller on organ. Or at times, the rhythm section of drummer Juston Stens and bassist Toby Leaman would shift mid-song from a Motown-influenced thump to a stuttering rat-a-tat tumble. But the Philly band, which grew out of West Chester's Raccoon, is less interested in showing off chops than in sharing a joyful, sometimes silly, good humor.

In Bloomsburg it is known as "the Crag," a 70-foot cliff notorious for a succession of deadly and near-fatal falls. This week, it claimed a young Bucks County man who plummeted to his death early Tuesday. Kevin White, 21, of Churchville, might have lost his way and fallen while walking back to his dormitory at nearby Bloomsburg University, police said. "He just fell off a cliff. There is nothing at this point that makes this suspicious," Bloomsburg Police Lt. Joseph Wondoloski said.

IT APPEARS THAT Villanova forward JayVaughn Pinkston's legal situation might finally be nearing a resolution.

Famiglio. Pinkston, who was reinstated by the university June 1, is facing one count of simple assault, a misdemeanor.

The invention by the Stanford engineering student: a gadget to detect whether your toilet seat is up or down. If down, the seat emits an inviting green glow. If up, it sends a bull's eye pattern - in red - to the bottom of the bowl. "Red serves as a warning to women, but to men, it's a guiding light," explained Patrie, 30. Patrie calls the device "His & Her WaterColor Intelligent NightLight.

IF YOU HATE Skip Bayless, you'll love this. Bayless appeared with fellow commentator Stephen A. Smith on ESPN's "First Take on Thursday; their guest was Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. Bayless wanted Sherman to talk about his Twitter feud with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. But Sherman would have none of it, choosing instead to humble the bombastic Bayless. "Whenever you speak to me or whenever you address me, address me as All-Pro Stanford graduate," Sherman said to Bayless.

For the uninitiated, the curious and the quite confused (you know who you are . . . or maybe not), here's a rundown of the basics about Wing Bowl, disguised as a Q&A. What is Wing Bowl? It's an annual chicken-wing eating contest dreamt up by WIP morning-show cohost Al Morganti in 1993 so Eagles fans would have a reason to get excited the weekend of the Super Bowl. On radio, you'll hear the voluble voice of co-conspirator Angelo Cataldi as the master of ceremonies, with saner views from Rhea Hughes.

In 2007, Kahn the camel made a planned appearance at the opening of the King Tut exhibit at the Franklin Institute and was well-received, his owner recalled. Then-Gov. Ed Rendell also was in attendance at the black-tie event. Last Friday, Kahn showed up at a fraternity party at the University of Pennsylvania. This time, however, his appearance generated criticism, as did the inclusion of a petting zoo for the Spring Fling. Charis Matey, co-owner of the Peaceable Kingdom petting zoo in Bucks County, said the five-year-old camel was content and not abused at the Zeta Psi party, and was supervised by her staff and several nondrinking students.

More than a quarter of the University of Pennsylvania's undergraduates have been issued antibiotics as a precaution against a bacterial infection that has hospitalized three students, officials said yesterday. No new cases of meningococcal disease have been confirmed since Friday, and a city public health official said two other students who had been hospitalized with flu-like symptoms probably did not have the more serious illness. The three students with confirmed Neisseria meningitidis were in fair or good condition yesterday at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, a positive sign with a disease that is fatal in 10 to 15 percent of cases and causes permanent serious disability in an additional 10 to 15 percent.
