Living in San Antonio, it may be easy to forget that not everyone in the U.S. mourned the retirement of Tim Duncan or that most schools do not have a giant “GO SPURS GO” banner that hangs...

About a week and a half later, the Columbia men’s wrestling team found themselves in deep water when texts they had sent using racist, sexist and homophobic language were leaked.

Following their first loss of the season and subsequent tumble from the No. 1 ranking in the country, no one would have blamed the Tigers for feeling sorry for themselves. Instead, the Tigers battled to win the SCAC championship, downing Colorado College in double overtime, and have a lot of energy heading into the playoffs. The Tigers recently experienced their first regular season loss against Texas Lutheran University, losing 3-2 with a goal scored by...
