After a dominating performance by the SCSU men’s golf team, the wait to take the NSIC title is over.

It’s been 38 years since the Huskies have won the title; in 1975 it was the Northern Intercollegiate Conference. The men have come close in recent years, placing second in 2012 and 2009, and third place in 2010 and 2011.

In the past two years the men have held a significant lead after phase one, but haven’t been able to seal the deal in the final two rounds.

A disappointing ending to the season would only be putting it mildly for the SCSU Huskies.

A disappointing ending to a pair of great collegiate careers would help sum it up.

However, the end to SCSU’s season did write school history.

The Quinnipiac Bobcats scored quickly, didn’t look back from there and cruised past the Huskies 4-1 in the second Frozen Four semifinal and into the championship game against ECAC conference rival Yale.

Pretty safe to say… This seasons been very very special. #HUSKYNATION #WCHAchamps #MacNaughtonCup #FrozenFour #SCSUf4 #stcloudstatespence dahl
Anyone else finding it weird that the Frozen Four this year consists of two 1 seeds and two 4 seeds? In other words, half the teams remaining are top teams (#1 and #3 in the country), the other two are lucky to have made it in (particularly Yale, whom I’m still not convinced should’ve made it in, but beat good Minnesota and North Dakota teams to make the Four).Even still, it means we’re left with a semifinal of "teams nobody outside of New England cares about" (UMass-Lowell and Yale) and "teams nobody cares about" (Quinnipiac and St. Cloud State).Michael Fisk

Stereotypes, prejudices, and racism in America: a celebration?

The United States of America celebrated a historical moment in November of 2008 when the first African-American became president. Many celebrated this moment, not only for the historical moment in the country’s history, but also as a sign that the country was moving past the racial prejudices and stereotypes which have plagued the nation since its beginning. As he was re-elected the nation rejoiced again. I, however, am not rejoicing, as I do not see this as a progression away from the prejudices and stereotypes.
