Women have always taken a backseat to men. I’m not saying it's right; I’m just stating that it happens. It’s the way things have gone for quite some time. Whether it was the right to vote, jobs or even something as simple as sports, women have not always come first. In today’s world, it’s even more evident in the realm of athletics. Danica Patrick of the NASCAR Sprint...

Love. We all want to feel it, know it and have it forever and ever, amen.  But what is love? How do you know when you love someone? Is it possible to truly love someone, especially at our age? These are a couple of the more common questions that are asked by our peers. And the thing is, these are completely natural inquiries to have. That’s where I come in. As a 20...

Captain's Corner: What the Best College Students Hate

When you work and study hard, it is nice to receive recognition for your accomplishments. It’s also nice to receive helpful advice every now and again. However, it is not nice to have your email regularly bombarded by “helpful” tips, claiming to be “what the best college students do.” Excuse me. “What the best college students do!” Can’t forget that exclamation...

“What am I going to wear today?” The infamous question that goes through our minds every morning has never been more important than on the day of an interview. I hope this isn’t news for anyone, how vital a first impression is during an interview. No matter what the interview is for, fashion code is essential. Even if you are not a fashion addict, your whole percept...

Valentine's Day: Love and Other Hugs

The day of love, Valentine's Day, is once again upon us. I can honestly say I have no idea what the history of this day is, what the real purpose of this day is or why it means so much to people all over the world. Maybe I am too cynical for a young person. Maybe I have a strong belief in being spontaneous and celebrating love any time of the year. Maybe I just do not see ...

Immediate improvement following a 2-14 season is a lot easier said than done. Sure, all you have to do is win three games this time around but the fact of the matter is it’s just not that easy. So what changes need to be made to begin the overhaul of the atrocity that was the Jacksonville Jaguars 2012 season? For starters, the Jags have finally parted ways with General Manager...

“I have no idea what I want to talk about today, so I’m just going to start typing until an idea hits me….nothing……nope….still nothing. Aggggggggggggggggggg.” That is the first draft of my column for this week. I typed that Friday, Feb. 1, trying to get a head start on my work for this week. I managed to get about 10 percent of my work done that I had planned ...

The Cost of Winning. Is It Worth It?

The world of sports as we know it is changing. Today, success is not measured by statistics but rather by dollar signs. If you put up good numbers you will be rewarded with a hefty payday, but is that what sports are really about? I am barely removed from my teen years and I can maybe think of a dozen or so athletes who truly exemplify what I thought of as being a profes...

There was a new owner, a new coach and a bounty of new players brought in to recreate the Jacksonville Jaguars franchise. They had two top-ten picks from the past two drafts in Blaine Gabbert and Justin Blackmon, the leagues leading rusher from a season ago in Maurice Jones-Drew and a fancy new catch phrase “All In” that got fans buzzing. With all of that being said, all...

And I feel fine. Better than fine, actually, fantastic. 2013 is looking to be a good year for yours truly, and I hope everything is going just as well for everybody else. Despite the problems with the economy, the job market, the housing market...You know, I'm going to stop there and get back on track. I was requested by my good friend, who I will refer to by her nickname,...

Once again, it is the most wonderful time of the year. And I’m not talking about Christmas. Rather, I’m not just talking about Christmas. At the end of November and the beginning of December, we have Thanksgiving break closely followed by Winter break. I think I speak for many of my contemporaries when I say that in college Thanksgiving almost surpasses Christmas (or any...

When I see boys in saggy pants, I think... 1. Tulsi Patel: "Pull up your pants son!" (Senior, Biology major) 2. Katie Counihan: "Son, pull up your pants please. I have said that before and will say it again." (Office Associate, Student Solutions Center) 3. Whitney Abshear: "It's kind of disrespectful to show your butt to the world."
