Buzz words, and fishing with Earl

Sporting notes, compiled while wondering if Charleston RiverDogs "switch-pitcher" Pat Venditte eventually will become the ultimate politician:

--Karl Malone and John Stockton excelled as basketball pick-and-roll artists but Buzz Peterson and Ed Conroy are not far behind. Did you see how Conroy's buddy Buzz said "no" to Appalachian State until Conroy essentially got a new deal at The Citadel? Now that's teamwork.

--Great news for The Citadel, which almost took too long to re-up Conroy.

Sanford's Slogan (letter to the editor)

Hats off to Dr. Jack Bass, visiting fellow in The Citadel's History Department, for his penetrating analysis of Gov. Mark Sanford's latest "slogan of the month" ("Sanford's stimulus message falls flat with S.C. voters," March 30). The governor's refrain about accepting stimulus money only if it can be used to reduce state debt seems to be a pipe dream.

Cougars bash four homers in easy victory over rival Bulldogs

MOUNT PLEASANT — On the whiteboard in the College of Charleston dugout Tuesday night, Cougars coach Monte Lee scrawled goals such as "leadoff runner on every inning" and "compete with two strikes."  He didn't write "smash home runs," but the Cougars did anyway. With the wind at Patriots Point Field blowing straight out to right field, Charleston blasted four homers — all to right and two by Joey Bergman — en route to a 21-8 pasting of rival The Citadel.

Hardy makes jump — in football

Last season, Citadel football coach Kevin Higgins asked for a second wide receiver to step up alongside All-American Andre Roberts.  It never really happened, as Roberts finished the season with 95 catches, nearly three times as many as the Bulldogs' second-leading receiver.  But this spring, rising sophomore Kevin Hardy is making a case for himself as Roberts' running mate. Boosted by the Southern Conference long jump title he won in February, the speedy 6-0, 175-pounder has been working with the first-team offense during spring practice.
