Bulldogs' backcourt foils Blue Devils' zone strategy

With no player taller than 6-5 on its roster, Central Connecticut State was determined Sunday night to control Citadel 7-footer Joe Wolfinger.  But the Blue Devils' 2-3 zone defense failed to account for the Bulldogs' backcourt of Cameron Wells and Zach Urbanus.  Urbanus matched his career best with seven 3-pointers and scored 23 points, while Wells nearly posted a triple-double to lead the Bulldogs past CCSU, 67-53, before 870 fans at McAlister Field House in the final game of the CollegeInsider.com Skip Prosser Tournament.

S.C. colleges face more budget cuts

Higher education spending in South Carolina will drop to roughly 1995 levels if the state trims roughly 3 percent from what it spends on colleges and universities.  Earlier this month, state economists said South Carolina needs to pare spending by $120 million, a roughly 3 percent cut for all state agencies.  For colleges and universities in South Carolina, it's another Yogi Berra moment. Schools are learning that it is, as the former New York Yankees manager famously said, "Deja vu all over again."

All road plans should allow alternative transportation (letter to the editor by Citadel professor)

It was about 1 o'clock on Nov. 14, 1956 ,in Valencia, just outside Topeka, Kan., when the ribbon was cut to open the first eight miles of the nation's national interstate and defense highways system. The event, while signaling a transformative moment in American history, went largely unnoticed. Not a single national newspaper covered the story. No one could have guessed how America and our way of life would be changed.

War and Peace at The Citadel (commentary)

Since 1842, The Citadel has been training men (and now women) for business, science, politics, and other fields, but most famously, for war. It is, after all, the Military College of South Carolina, and takes its Sword Drill, Summerall Guard and Long Gray Line Parade quite seriously. Its cadets and graduates have fought in every American war since 1861.  That’s why I found it curious that Dr. Will Johnson of The Citadel’s Department of Psychology would be teaching an Honors level course called the Psychology of War and Peace – with the operative word being peace.

Astronaut in Space While Wife Giving Birth

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida (Reuters) - Shuttle Atlantis astronaut Randy Bresnik can be forgiven if he's having a tough time focusing on work -- his wife is due to give birth on Friday to a baby girl.  "He'd certainly like to be there for the birth of his daughter, but timing is what timing is," shuttle pilot Barry Wilmore said during an in-flight interview on Friday. "He's here and his wife, Rebecca, is there and he's going to make the best of it."

Astronaut Stuck in Space While Wife Giving Birth

It may be the mother lode of all bad timing: Atlantis shuttle astronaut Randy Bresnik is stuck at the International Space Station, hundreds of miles from his pregnant wife Rebecca, who is expected to give birth to a baby girl as early as today.
Bresnik and his crewmates will spend their Friday hauling cargo between Atlantis and the space station, but NASA has set aside some time for the 42-year-old astronaut to call his wife for updates of his second child's arrival, mission managers said.

Astronauts finish first spacewalk

CAPE CANAVERAL — Atlantis astronaut Randy Bresnik may have an extra skip in his spacewalking step Saturday when he exits the International Space Station for the first time.  Sometime today in Houston, the 42-year-old Marine lieutenant colonel's wife could give birth to their second child, a girl.  "Anybody who's been through that experience can tell you, sometimes you can't plan those things as well as you would like to," said Brian Smith, a lead station flight director for the mission. "So we'll react and deal with it as it happens."

App State vs. Elon for first, everyone else for third (SoCon football)

--The Citadel needs two victories for its second winning season in three years under coach Kevin Higgins, and just its second in the past 11 seasons. For all of the Bulldogs' travails this season, that would be a notable accomplishment.  "In order to do that, our seniors have to step up and play the best football they've ever played," Higgins said.  But both games are on the road, at Chattanooga and at Georgia Southern. And given that the Bulldogs have lost nine of their last 10 road games, it won't be easy.

Citadel focus (letter to the editor by '55 alum)

In a Nov. 1 letter to the editor, a writer stated very succinctly some of the problems leading up to the recent uprising by cadets. The Citadel seems to have lost its focus on being a military academy.  Sure, it is a liberal arts college with a military objective. However, cadets no longer meet formations for meals. There is no prayer at meals, and many don't attend chapel Sunday mornings. Many are not required to participate in parade formations or Saturday morning inspections.

Embarrassed by ‘brawl' (letter to the editor - scroll down)

It is evident that the times they are a-changing. A brawl in the barracks of The Citadel? One in which The Citadel staff is afraid to walk into the melee?  A college which used to pride itself on its discipline has become another college with rebellious youth besmirching the time-honored institution with their riotous behavior.  I was embarrassed to read about it, and I didn't attend The Citadel. But I have lived in Charleston for over 50 years. Someone there needs a time out.
