Nick of time: Freshman Orvin provides spark for Bulldogs

This time last year, Nick Orvin was batting third and playing second base for Berkeley High School.  Tonight, Orvin will bat leadoff and play center field for The Citadel against South Carolina.  The 5-11, 180-pound freshman, a reluctant Bulldog at best, has handled unexpected leadoff and center field duties with aplomb rare for a rookie, and is a big reason The Citadel has won five straight and is off to one of its best offensive starts in years.

Training for the unexpected

It was a disaster drill with an odd assortment of victims: gray-skinned blow-up dolls, labeled either "bleeding from head" or "suffering broken legs."  Sprinting each to the "aid" stations were a couple of dozen fourth-year students from the Medical University of South Carolina who ran across the Horseshoe to get "victims" to the right triage station, depending on the severity of their mock injuries.  The classroom moved outdoors Monday afternoon as part of MUSC's "Disaster 101" course.

An elephant they never forgot ('59 roomates)

MOUNT PLEASANT — Citadel Bulldogs mascot Jim Jeffrey decided that bringing the elephant at Channel 2 to the football stadium was a good way to fire up the crowd for the 1958 game with undefeated Virginia Military Institute.  Jeffrey and classmate Bobby Schwarze hatched a plan to get Suzie Q from Channel 2, then known as WUSN-TV. Under cover of night, they loaded her into a trailer hitched to a 1950 Ford convertible.

As academic administrators go, P. George Benson isn't worried about rattling some cages. In fact, it's becoming an annual routine.  A year ago, Benson, a relative newcomer to the area, used a high-profile speaking engagement to scold business leaders and the community at large for either forgetting or ignoring the Port of Charleston's role in the state and local economy. It was memorable, resonating performance.

Bulldogs win 600th for Jordan

Long after the crowd had left Riley Park on Sunday afternoon, Citadel baseball coach Fred Jordan walked out to short right field with his wife, Debbie, and son, Bulldogs shortstop Kyle.  They posed for a family picture in front of the scoreboard with the words "600 WINS" in giant letters next to Jordan's photo.  It was a modest celebration for a huge achievement. The Citadel's 4-1 victory over Air Force gave Jordan his 600th career victory, making him just the second coach in Citadel and Southern Conference history to reach that milestone, behind only Bulldogs legend Chal Port, who had 641 wins in 27 seasons.

_THE Citadel - Team Notes (hot off the press)

Forget baby steps. The Citadel executed its improvement plan full-bore, going from a team that won just six games a season ago to one that won 20 this year. The Bulldogs went from a team that won just one game in the Southern Conference to a team that won 15, finished in second place in the South Division and earned one of the league's byes for the first round of the Southern Conference tournament. Sure, the Bulldogs lost their last two games of the year -- against Samford in the Southern Conference tournament and against Old Dominion in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament -- but the amount of growth was so fast that it's clear the Bulldogs have turned the corner.

Events to honor Edgar Allan Poe

He sailed into Charleston in the fall of 1827, a young soldier serving under an assumed name, still trying to find his identity.  
For more than a year, he was stationed at Fort Moultrie, and some say he spent his free time walking the beach on Sullivan's Island, composing poetry to complement the small book he already had published anonymously as "A Bostonian." 

Wednesday is Edgar Allan Poe Day at the College of Charleston. Poe lived in the Lowcountry for a year.

• A panel discussion on Poe will be held at 3:15 p.m. in the Admissions Auditorium of the Robert Scott Small Library on campus. Panelists include Rick Zender (John Rivers Communications Museum), Jim Hutchisson (English, The Citadel), Hal Poe (Union University) and Scott Peeples (English, College of Charleston).

The Last Ace

American air superiority has been so complete for so long that we take it for granted. For more than half a century, we’ve made only rare use of the aerial-combat skills of a man like Cesar Rodriguez, who retired two years ago with more air-to-air kills than any other active-duty fighter pilot. But our technological edge is eroding—Russia, China, India, North Korea, and Pakistan all now fly fighter jets with capabilities equal or superior to those of the F-15, the backbone of American air power since the Carter era. Now we have a choice. We can stock the Air Force with the expensive, cutting-edge F‑22—maintaining our technological superiority at great expense to our Treasury. Or we can go back to a time when the cost of air supremacy was paid in the blood of men like Rodriguez.

Tuition increase curbs rejected

COLUMBIA — Lawmakers rejected efforts Tuesday to shield parents and students from college tuition increases. ... Rep. Chip Limehouse, R-Charleston, cited state spending for The Citadel as an example. In the 1995 fiscal year, the state put nearly $13 million into the military college and that's fallen to $12.6 million.

For Some, Hard Times Make Hiring Easier

The number of colleges freezing faculty hiring seems to grow each week. Yet some institutions are going against the grain of the poor economy and appointing new professors. This decision has given those campuses an edge, yielding top-quality candidates who might not have been within reach in a more-competitive job market.  In the nation's few flush states, public universities are capitalizing on relative financial health by luring professors away from budget-strapped areas. And some private liberal-arts colleges that did not rely heavily on investment income still have the resources to hire.

S.C. House Squashes Tuition Caps

At first, capping tuition hikes was just one more of Gov. Mark Sanford’s many ideas to overhaul higher education in South Carolina and was included, as always, in his annual executive budget proposals that state legislators routinely have ignored with relish.  But as time has passed and a debate about higher education spending hit the floor of the S.C. House recently, such cries for tuition relief have been increasing, even if two proposals to enact such caps met their doom March 10.

Dogs ponder end to special season

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — Zach Urbanus stood outside a devastated Citadel locker room in an empty McKenzie Arena late Saturday night, trying to find some middle ground between pain and pride.  "This is going to stick with us for a while," the Bulldogs sophomore guard said after a 76-67 loss to Samford knocked The Citadel out of the Southern Conference Tournament. "We came here to win this thing, not for any other reason. And to go out in the first game, that's tough."

Charleston, Citadel still chasing Davidson

Who can challenge Davidson? A quick rundown:

--The Citadel (20-11, 15-5) has the advantage of a first-round bye and 12 victories in its last 13 games heading into the tournament. But if they reach the semifinals, the Bulldogs will likely face one of the two SoCon teams it could not beat this season — Wofford, which beat them twice, or Chattanooga, which will be playing on its home floor. And The Citadel is the only team in the league that did not play at the Mocs' McKenzie Arena during the regular season.

After that, The Citadel's board voted to open its doors to women, and four women enrolled in 1996.

Best Example of Bad Sportsmanship (Chas City Paper Best of)

Citadel Cadets vs. Princeton Band

We hear about southern hospitality a lot here in Charleston, and rightfully so. Chucktown is arguably the friendliest city in America. But sometimes, it's not so pretty, and sometimes that not-so prettiness happens at the Citadel. When the Citadel Bulldogs faced off against the Princeton Tigers, the contest between the two teams was practically a lovefest compared to the face-off between the cadets and the band. Evidently, things got tense when the Princeton band made asses of themselves on the Avenue of Remembrance, angering up the blood of the cadets, who then reportedly began to rough up the band. Once it came time for halftime, the band was greeted with a hail of boos.

CHARLESTON, S.C. — The Citadel, which like all military colleges has struggled both to find and to keep undergraduates willing to wear uniforms, stand at attention and march in parades, has never been much of a basketball power. The cadets are better known for attacking a Union steamer three months before the official start of the Civil War, and for bizarre hazing rituals like the one in which knobs, or first-year students, were dabbed with brass-polish remover and set on fire.

His Winning Season

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- Pat Conroy's dad hit him after games. He hit him with fists, and with open palms, hit him until blood ran from Pat's nose or lip onto his basketball jersey. Don Conroy didn't hit his son only after games. He hit him for smiling at the wrong time, talking at the wrong time, crying at the wrong time, for trying to defend his battered mother at the wrong time. On occasion, he hit him just for the hell of it. Pat's first childhood memory is of sitting in a high chair watching his mother try to kill his father with a kitchen knife and then his dad laughing while beating her to the floor. There was only one place during the long night of Pat's childhood where his father's fury couldn't touch him. He felt safe on the basketball court.
