Hollings and Drayton inducted into S.C. Hall of Fame
MYRTLE BEACH - Fritz Hollings, one of the newest inductees into the South Carolina Hall of Fame, might have retired from public office, but he hasn't retired from telling it as he sees it. The Charleston native and Citadel graduate served his state for more than half a century as state lawmaker, lieutenant governor, governor and U.S. senator, a job he held for almost four decades until retiring last year.

Overtime heartbreak for Bulldogs
This time, The Citadel Bulldogs had to work an extra five minutes to get their hearts broken. Barely 48 hours after losing on a buzzer-beater, the Bulldogs pushed Chattanooga to overtime before running out of gas. The Citadel's 74-64 loss, before 1,052 fans at McAlister Field House on Monday night, was the Bulldogs 12th in a row, and might have been the toughest of the bunch.

Quinn runs odd route to Vandy
At the beginning of Matt Quinn’s junior season, playing football on the Division I level was the furthest thing from his mind. Quinn had been the starting quarterback for Byrne’s junior varsity team and was sitting behind two pretty good players, Willy Korn and Daniel Barton, on the Rebels’ varsity. Quinn had several offers from Division I-AA schools such as Furman, Appalachian State and the Citadel, but Vanderbilt and East Carolina were the only Division I-A schools to offer. A life-long South Carolina fan, Quinn decided if he couldn’t play for the Gamecocks, he would at least like to play against them.

It was midnight, but it wasn't madness. When Arkansas football coaches scheduled a meeting at one minute after midnight with top quarterback prospect Mitch Mustain, they were just trying to follow NCAA rules...."You know it by heart," said Maurice Drayton, The Citadel's recruiting coordinator. "But you always want to check it, because you don't want to make a mistake and get your face on the cover of one of those recruiting magazines for committing a violation.

Since September 11, 2001, defense spending in the U.S. has risen almost 60 percent; spending on higher education has risen more than 200 percent. What do we get for this money? Not learning.

Applicants to USC wait longer for admission
USC’s evolving admissions policies are causing some prospective students to wait longer for a coveted admissions letter — and to make back-up plans for college. Admissions letters usually start going out in the fall. But, this year, most of the letters won’t hit mailboxes until March. The problem, high school guidance counselors say, is the state’s lottery-funded scholarships. Those scholarships pay the lion’s share of tuition at state-assisted universities and are resulting in increased demand to get into the University of South Carolina’s Columbia campus.

After spending several years working at a large corporate bank, Trey Crabb, currently a managing director of investment banking for Avondale Partners in Nashville, Tenn., decided it was time for a change -- and he knew just what he wanted to do. He outlined his ideal career path in a 1998 application to University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill's Kenan-Flagler Business School, and his prediction was realized after three years in the school's MBA/MHA (Master's of Health Administration) dual-degree program.
