Subjected to Bad Football, Charleston's Dead May Finally Get a Rest
...The city gave the stadium to The Citadel in 1963. But, try as it may, the military school hasn't managed to give the dead beneath the west grandstand much of a show. With a few semi-glorious exceptions, the school's football teams have tended to lose more than they won. During the unforgettable seasons on 1999 and 2000, the squad finished 2-9 each year...

Excuses flying more often than ever, professors say
BOSTON--And then there was the Penn State student who used the "death in the family" excuse once too often. "It was an Italian student," said Carol Shloss, an English professor of 30 years who now teaches at Stanford. "Every time he had a paper due, he had a grandmother who had died. That was a three-strikes-you're-out rule. You don't have three grandmothers -- not in an Italian family."
