The Citadel's sophomore guard, Cameron Wells, is second only to Curry as an all-arounder, and the Bulldogs' senior center, Demetrius Nelson, has the best post moves of the league's big men. College of Charleston scoring machine Andrew Goudelock is our fourth guard.

Embedded with the Marines in Afghanistan (by Citadel professor)

The crumbling wall of the parapet on the northwestern corner on the ancient caravanserai was built up with sandbags and topped with concertina wire. The long barrel of a .50 caliber machine gun (M2, or Ma Deuce as she is affectionately called) points north across the desert toward a very small mud-walled village 1000 yards out and a few smaller walled compounds more or less the same distance out. Sharply rising Afghan mountains here in Farah Province are about four miles beyond the village. This southern province touches Iran to the west and a corner of Helmand Province to the southeast, where abundant poppy farming produces 60 percent to 90 percent of the world’s heroin and where the Taliban flourish for an obvious reason, drug money.

State's colleges have more financial cuts coming

South Carolina has cut 17.7 percent from the budgets of its public colleges and universities this year — the highest rate in the nation. As a result, presidents say the window is closed on a chance to make the state's higher education system more competitive with those in other states. Citadel President Lt. Gen. John Rosa also said he understands the state's financial predicament. But he noted his institution has endured a nearly 23 percent state budget cut, much higher than the state average of 17.7 percent. With those kinds of cuts, you look at the things that keep your college accredited and everything above that is at risk," he said.

A historic day for African Americans in Colorado (by Clay Middleton '03)

In a state whose population is about 4 percent African American, far less than the national average of 12.1 percent, Colorado has elected state Rep. Terrance Carroll and state Sen. Peter C. Groff to lead their respective chambers in the Colorado General Assembly.  Mr. Carroll is the only black member of the Colorado House of Representatives, and Mr. Groff is the only black member of the state Senate. Both chambers are controlled by Democrats. For the first time in Colorado's history and in the United States, both chambers of a state General Assembly will be led by African Americans at the same time. In a year with many historical contexts with the election of Barack Obama as president of the United States, Colorado has much to be proud of.

Reinstate 'Dixie' (letter to the editor by '94)

As I watched the Cotton Bowl, I couldn't help but sing along each time the Ole Miss band celebrated a touchdown by playing one of the most beautiful and revered songs in our nation's history — "Dixie." ... That theory was the excuse used by the leadership at The Citadel when they erased "Dixie" and the Confederate flag from their traditions several years ago.  As a Citadel graduate, I fondly remember marching at parades and cheering at football games to that rousing tune.
