Ethics, not consumpton, for environment

With the shadow of global climate change looming large and ominous over the 21st century, buying environmentally friendly products is all the rage.

T-shirts picturing the earth saying “This is why I’m hot” (referring to global warming), and phrases like “green is the new black” (in the realm of fashion) represent the current trend toward a consumer population that manages to save the world – and look cool doing it.

Women shut out Mount Union, coast to 3-0

The Wooster women’s soccer improved to 3-0 this weekend with a win over Mt. Union College with a score of 3-0. The Fighting Scots second shutout of the season was a showcase for some newcomers, some returning stars and Wooster’s powerhouse defense.

CROSSFIRE: Ohio State versus USC

As a lifelong resident of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, I have lived the good life, in regards to the sporting world, over the past decade. Pay no attention to what ESPN may tell you about some insignificant southern high school football village – Boston is the true title town. Although for the team that founded my fair city in its recent winning ways, the fall of 2008 is looking the bleakest it has in nearly a decade. Continue reading CROSSFIRE: Ohio State versus USC

The Fighting Scots went into Waynesburg, Pa. on Saturday with one goal in mind – shut down Robert Heller.

Mission accomplished.

Men’s soccer gets first win against Defiance, loses to Otterbein 1-0

At the opening of this season, it seemed as if nothing could go right for the Wooster men’s soccer team. Even with a roster stocked with well-seasoned veterans, and a powerful drive to outdo the team’s last year’s performance, the Fighting Scot’s still finished the first week of the 2008 campaign a disheartening 2-0 loss, losing on the road to non-conference opponents Aurora and Heidelberg. With things starting to look somewhat bleak and the experienced Scots searching for a boost to get them on the right track, the team returned to Wooster last Wednesday, Sept. 3 and got back on track against Marietta College.
