Shortsighted Fans Are the Crisis at Hand

To the Editor:   I’m not much of a letter writer, but the editorial, “A Program’s Identity Crisis” (The Hoya, A2, March 22, 2011), was so misguided as to deserve a response. I can only presume the writer(s) are somewhere in the Class of 2011 or 2012, which means surely[Read More…]

Star QB Deserves Scrutiny

When it comes time this December to award the Heisman Trophy to its 2010 recipient at the Yale Club in New York City, I hope the voters have the courage to give Auburn’s Cam Newton a big, cast bronze stiff arm. The 21-year-old quarterback from College Park, Ga., would seem[Read More…]
