The Rambler Soccer coach resigns, citing "irreconcilable differences" By Dominick Mastrangelo Staff writer The coaching merry-go- round that is the Texas Wesleyan athletic department had another passenger ask oft" the ride. Soccer coach Dave McAlpine resigned on Jan. 5 after less than a year with the revolving-door soccer program and became the third coach to leave in as many years. McAlpine cited "irreconcil- able differences" between Wesleyan athletic director Rosie Stallman and himself and a loss of confidence in the program as the primary reasons for his departure. "I felt when I went to recruit new players and sell the program to the current players I lost confi- dence (in the program]," said McAlpine who led Wesleyan to a 5-10-2 record last fall. "There were conflicts with Rosie and myself that were not resolved and it was in the best interest of the team: the new play- ers, the old players and the growth of the program to let a new coach alleviate these conflicts."

The Rambler Drug testing proposed to SCAD V K m- m *WufW,r ■ / 1 By Brigette Gues.no Staff writer 1 The Student Committee on Athletic Development (SCAD) was approached to work on a proposal for the implementation of a drug testing program for all athletes. Il will be presented to the athletic administration and univer- sity for review. The SCAD committee is made up of two representa- tives from each athletic team. The committee has a "voice" among the developments within, the Wesleyan athletic pro- gram. The drug testing program has come about because of the athletic program's possible changeover to NCAA Division 2 competition. This program would be set up to be in compliance with the NCAA rules. This task was given to SCAD because athletic director Rosie Stallman wanted the student athletes to have their input into the possible program. The NCAA condemns the employment of nontherapeu- tic drugs by student athletes in an effort to enhance or influence athletic performance. The banne...

The vast majority of the students, staff and faculty at Texas Wesleyan are intelligent, loving, caring, tolerant and compassionate people. However, a few isolated incidents and brief conversa- tions with individuals have instilled in me a sense of rage and the need to "air some dirty laundry." An evil and insidious disease, much like a debilitating cancer, is spreading across the land. And, as a cancer, if left unchecked, will destroy a human body, this diabolical movement, if not arrested, may well tear this nation asun- der. Intolerance. Bigotry. Prejudice. Call it what you wish. By any name, this illness arises from ignorance, irra...
