Maryland assistant basketball coach Chuck Driesell, son of the legendary Terps coach, will be named head coach at The Citadel, according to three sources with knowledge of his plans. An announcement is likely in the next few days. Driesell will succeed Ed Conroy, who was named head coach at Tulane earlier this month. The Citadel, which has nine rising seniors, was 16-16 (9-9 Southern Conference) last season. Driesell arrived at Maryland in 2006, spending four years on Gary Williams' staff at the school where Driesell's father, Charles "Lefty" Driesell, won 348 games while coaching from 1969 to 1986.

Even those who want The Citadel to remain all-male must have felt a twinge of sadness for Shannon Faulkner after she failed to stick it out there. Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, a professor who designed alternative study programs for women in South Carolina and Virginia that have been offered as justifications to keep The Citadel and Virginia Military Institute all-male, said, "While I'm on the opposite side legally, I ache for her personally."Legally, the battle still goes on. The Supreme Court is expected to agree this fall to decide if The Citadel and VMI may continue to exclude women.

A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit ruled that the Virginia Military Institute may remain all male if the new Virginia Women's Institute for Leadership at Mary Baldwin College demonstrates it can provide "a substantively comparable opportunity for women." This week the Justice Department is expected to ask the Supreme Court to review that ruling. By coincidence, at the same time South Carolina must offer a remedy for the state's failure to provide women an education comparable to the Citadel's.

WASHINGTON -- Shannon Faulkner's attorneys asked the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday to reject a last-ditch effort by the Citadel to keep her out of the corps of cadets, accusing the school of "unethical" behavior.In a 30-page reply to a legal action submitted to the Supreme Court the day before, Ms. Faulkner's attorneys used tough language against the Citadel and its prime ally, the state of South Carolina."The notion that one woman will single-handedly destroy the Citadel is ludicrous," Ms. Faulkner's attorney, Val Vojdik, said in papers filed with the court.

A male chauvinist would take delight in Shannon Faulkner's distress. Being a more enlightened sort, I offer her understanding and compassion.Ms. Faulkner is the young woman who went to court to become the first female cadet to attend the Citadel, a respected old military college in South Carolina.Because the school is state-funded, a federal judge agreed with the ACLU, which represented Ms. Faulkner, that she was entitled to join the 2,000 male cadets at the college.The Citadel fought her suit, saying that having a female creature in the program would be a terrible pain because she could not deal with the awful military grind.

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- As male cadets looked on with stony displeasure, a young South Carolina woman became yesterday the first woman to take classes with the corps of cadets at The Citadel, breaking a 151-year-old tradition at the historic military college and firing a resounding salvo in the nation's wars between the sexes.Escorted by three lawyers and designated cadet escorts in their winter blue uniforms, Shannon Faulkner marked her 19th birthday on a frigid morning by showing up for an 8 o'clock biology class, capping a bitter legal battle and raising anew emotional issues of education, equity, tradition and the sexes.

Hedge-fund operator Citadel Investment Group LLC and JPMorgan Chase & Co. agreed to take over energy-trading positions from Amaranth Advisors LLC, the hedge fund whose wrong-way bets lost about $4.6 billion this month, two people with knowledge of the decision said. Separately, Citigroup Inc. is in talks to buy a stake in Amaranth, two people involved in those discussions said. Amaranth, which had $9.5 billion in assets in August, was forced to unload the trades after swings in natural-gas prices last week turned it into the biggest hedge fund meltdown since the near collapse of Long-Term Capital Management LP's 1998.

"If we were worth a ----, we wouldn't be playing at The Citadel." -- My Losing Season A teammate of Pat Conroy's made that observation during their senior year at The Citadel, back in 1966-67, when the seeds of The Great Santini and The Lords of Discipline were germinating in the Bulldogs' point guard. Pat Dennis, the coach who is in his 13th season tilting at windmills at the military academy in Charleston, S.C., has a signed copy of My Losing Season, an autobiographical work about Conroy's final go-round in the game.

COLLEGE PARK - It took all of 16 seconds for Maryland to erase two weeks of self-doubt and nearly eight quarters of offensive futility last night. On the first play of the game, Terps running back Josh Allen took the handoff against The Citadel and sprinted untouched for a 72-yard touchdown. It was the first time Maryland's offense had been in the end zone in 28 possessions, and it was just the shot of confidence the Terps needed, as they rolled to a historic, 61-0 win over the Division I-AA Bulldogs.

COLLEGE PARK - A week ago today, Maryland quarterback Scott McBrien stood outside the visitors' locker room at Florida State's Doak Campbell Stadium with a blank look on his face. He had just played one of the worst games of his career, and now the questions were coming at him fast and furious. Why aren't things working? How do you fix them? Will you play better next week? What's going on? For every question, McBrien had the same answer: It's my fault. We're going to play better. When Maryland coach Ralph Friedgen saw that, he named McBrien team captain for tonight's game against The Citadel.

The most astonishing thing about the Shannon Faulkner case is that, according to the lawyers, there are at least two otherwomen willing to fill the breach.This can't be right, can it?It's bad enough to risk the hardships of desegregating the Citadel. But how about the risk of being the next Shannon Faulkner, who, if I understand her critics, should be shunned for her failure or possibly just horsewhipped?I mean, she quit, didn't she?As a symbol of womanhood, she was a clear loser. Not only was she out of shape (a nice way of saying overweight)

COLLEGE PARK - Contrary to what you might have heard, the sky isn't falling on the Maryland football team. At least, that's the way wide receiver Rich Parson tells it. After all, if Maryland defeats The Citadel on Saturday, the Terps' record will be 1-2. And Parson would argue that starting out last year 1-2 went a long way toward helping Maryland win 10 of the next 11 games. "I think being 1-2 last year gave us character," Parson said. "It gave us that fighting edge. I think it's one we've got to get back."
