This article will probably rub a lot of beta males the wrong way. But in a way, this pays homage, deference and even reverence to you, loser-beta-males.

As an alpha male, I’m writing about the dangers of being everyone’s #1 lottery pick. Every fraternity’s unanimous #1, selection. There. Are. Numerous. Dangers.

Danger #1: Assuming you’re a winner, in perpetuity.

I just pledged a house {Kappa sigma}. But I remember “losers” who started their own house. I bet those ‘losers’ are #winning now #uiucEweek

Danger #2: feeling superior to those not drafted.

At the time, it seemed like they were leftover people. But they did something after being passed over by 55 houses. #UDFA twitter.com/larrychiang/st…

Danger #3 When You’re Everyone’s Unanimous #1 Lottery Pick: failure to realize that there are more #UDFA‘s in the Hall of Fame than #1 picks.
