Become a Captain for THON 2011

It seems like just yesterday that the final total was raised on stage at the end of THON 2010, but the largest student-run philanthropy in the world moves quickly. Applications for select Captain positions have been posted on this week. THON Captains are in charge of the various projects and events that take place throughout the year and during THON weekend. They report directly to the Overall Committee and many of them oversee committees of their own.

Gorman Abruptly Resigns

Head coach of the men's soccer program Barry Gorman unexpectedly announced his resignation Monday. He leaves a legacy of 22 years of coaching and three Big Ten titles in his wake. Citing "personal reasons," he has left the team to a nation-wide search for his successor.

"We expected Gorman to be there," [rising Senior and Co-Captain Andres] Casais said of next season. "He was a father figure to us."

Oof, that can't feel good. The move isn't completely out of the blue, as Gorman was periodically absent during the past few weeks without notice. But from all accounts, his intention to resign was only revealed yesterday. On the abandonment scale, this registers just slightly above "going to the store for some cigarettes and never coming back."
