1. The Citadel, Charleston Southern agree to resume series in 2018
It was a one-sided rivalry until it went away the first time, and it's been fairly lopsided since it came back. It remains to be seen whether Charleston Southern or The Citadel will own a big edge on the field when they resume their now twice-interrupted series in 2018, but there's one aspect that will swing exclusively the Bulldogs' way: the location. Johnson Hagood Stadium will host all four meetings between Charleston's two Division I college football programs when a series that's currently in the first of a two-year hiatus kicks off again. And that's perhaps as interesting a detail as the agreement to play at all, which was announced Monday by The Citadel athletic director Jim Senter. "We are excited to renew this FCS matchup between our two schools," Senter said in a statement. "This game is a no-brainer and makes sense for two great colleges in the Lowcountry representing two outstanding FCS conferences. We have been working on dates and finalizing the terms for a while now, and we are excited to resume this series in Johnson Hagood Stadium beginning in 2018." The Citadel won four of the first five meetings in a series that began in 2002 and lasted until 2007, with a scheduled 2004 meeting canceled due to Hurricane Frances. The rivalry renewed in 2012 with another Bulldogs rout, but the Buccaneers have beaten The Citadel four times in the last three seasons - including a 14-6 win at home last December that was Charleston Southern's first FCS playoff victory.

2. Citadel professor's research on Hemingway reveals different man than imagined
The author of the first major Ernest Hemingway biography in more than 20 years wants the world to know Hemingway as he believes he was. Citadel Professor James M. Hutchisson, Ph.D. wrote Ernest Hemingway, A New Life, which Penn State University Press published this year. Hutchisson is a professor of American literature at the college, and this is his thirteenth book. What compelled Hutchisson to write Ernest Hemingway, A New Life? "For starters, I thought that the existing major biographies of Hemingway were swaybacked by their insistence on seeing Hemingway through a single, very limited critical or ideological lens," he said. "I also felt that most biographers, whether they admitted it or not, didn't much like Hemingway. I think that over time many of his statements and public gestures were misinterpreted, and I wanted to give a fairer and more balanced portrait of the man. I see him more sympathetically, I think, than many other critics do." Hutchisson started Ernest Hemingway, A New Life in 2007, in the midst of his more than 25 year career as a professor at The Citadel. He says he published three other books during the time he was conducting research and writing about Hemmingway.

3. Citadel considers tearing down visitors' side at Johnson Hagood Stadium
The Citadel is considering tearing down the visitors' side at Johnson Hagood Stadium and expects to make a decision by the end of the week, athletic director Jim Senter said Monday. Flaking lead paint, a health hazard, was discovered on the east side of the 21,000-seat stadium over the summer, and fans were not allowed to sit on that side during the Sertoma Football Classic earlier this month. With the Bulldogs' home opener against Furman looming on Sept. 10, a decision on a way forward must be made soon, Senter said Monday after a meeting of the Board of Visitors' operations and risk management committee. The school also is considering a three-phase mitigation and repair project that would have the center section of the east-side stands ready for the Furman game, with more sections available later in the season. "We are looking at every option as to what is the wise and prudent thing to do," Senter said. "There's a lot of things to take into consideration there - the number of tickets we're selling, the revenue we're generating, the age and viability of the structure moving forward, the cost to repair it.

4. John Locke Is Needed Now More than Ever
Personal and economic freedom are under attack in the United States and in many other parts of the world. This is seen most clearly in this year's contest for the White House. In all the rhetoric about America's political, social, and economic problems that is heard from the lips of the Democratic and Republican presidential candidates, there is one phrase that is hardly ever mentioned or considered important: the liberty of the individual. Neither Clinton nor Trump Place Any Value on Liberty - Hillary Clinton's mantra focuses on redistributive entitlements; racial, social and gender group privileges or burdens; and social engineering of human relationships based on superimposed collective identity politics. Deceptions, lies, and an arrogant self-righteous tone of feigned caring about others as she pursues personal power and wealth: these are the hallmarks of her disgraceful character. Amid Donald Trump's televised outbursts and often-disconnected streams of consciousness, he drones on about regaining a lost national collectivist greatness; nativist job entitlements against immigrants looking for a better future; and bullying businesses to operate their companies where Trump thinks they should be located. His coarse insults and threats are directed against anyone who falls into his disfavor, and are wrapped in a disregard for Constitutional constraints and a disrespect for civil liberties under the Bill of Rights. Richard M. Ebeling is BB&T Distinguished Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. He was president of the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE) from 2003 to 2008.

7. Citadel Notes: True freshmen dot depth chart on offensive line
Freshman Drew McEntyre is slated to start at right guard for The Citadel in the Bulldogs' opener at Mercer on Thursday, and two other true freshmen are on the depth chart released Monday. McEntyre is a 6-3, 285-pounder from Calhoun, Ga. He started working with the first team in preseason camp when senior center Ryan Bednar was hampered by injury, forcing sophomore Tyler Davis to slide over from guard to center. The depth chart lists Bednar (6-1, 285) or Davis (6-1, 279) as the starter at center. Meanwhile, freshman Prince Howard-Whitaker is the backup to junior Isaiah Pinson and left tackle, and freshman Mark Weakland is No. 2 at left guard behind senior Kyle Weaver. On defense, junior Travis Johnson is set to start at the end position occupied by all-Southern Conference performer Mark Thomas last year. Sophomores Kevin Graham, Ken Allen and Jonathan King form a three-man rotation at tackle, where Mitchell Jeter was the SoCon defensive player of the year last year. Myles Pierce, a 6-0, 229-pound junior, is starting at the linebacker spot filled last year by top tackler James Riley.

1. 20 years later, women continue to make history at The Citadel
Jennifer Pozzani grimaced as the barber wrapped her shoulder-length blonde hair into a ponytail and started cutting. Then she squeezed her eyes shut. The barber, a woman named Sarah Kilgore with two-toned hair and tattoos on her arms, sawed off Pozzani's ponytail and traced a humming clipper along her scalp. Jaw dropped, Pozzani stared at her reflection in the mirror on the opposite wall of The Citadel Barber Shop. "How does that look?" Kilgore asked, handing Pozzani a mirror. "Good," she said. "As good as it's gonna get." "Nine months will be over before you know it." For Pozzani, an 18-year-old from Rockland County in New York, her regulation haircut - no longer than three inches on all sides - is a rite of passage at The Citadel, an institution steeped in history and tradition that for decades excluded women from its ranks. How times have changed. In the past 20 years, the number of women in the Corps of Cadets has slowly but steadily grown. In 1999 - the year Nancy Mace, a self-described "tomboy" from Goose Creek, became the first female cadet to graduate from the historic military college - 30 women entered The Citadel's iron gates. For the fall 2016 semester, 68 female "knobs" reported to campus for Matriculation Day, the school's largest class of freshmen women ever. Today, women at The Citadel hold high-ranking leadership positions within the Corps. More than half of them participate in varsity sports. They enter The Citadel with higher grade-point averages than their males peers. They graduate at higher rates and are less likely to drop out, too. Research from the Multi-Institutional Survey of Leadership shows women graduate from The Citadel with increased resilience, confidence and leadership skills.

2. SC Attorney General appoints chief deputy
South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson has appointed Robert Bolchoz as Chief Deputy Attorney General to replace John McIntosh, who is retiring. Bolchoz will take over the position Jan. 2, 2017. McIntosh has served as Chief Deputy since 1998 for three attorneys general and has been in the Attorney General's Office since 1995. McIntosh retires after an extensive 50-year legal career where he tried more than 300 criminal cases, including six death penalty trials. During his career, he worked as an Assistant Public Defender in Richland County and as Chief Deputy Solicitor in the 5th Circuit. From 1981 to 1994 he served as First Assistant in the U.S. Attorney's Office. "It has been my honor and privilege to work with one of the most experienced and respected prosecutors in the state. John's legal knowledge is second to none and to work with him and learn from him has been invaluable to me as Attorney General," Wilson said. Bolchoz brings more than 25 years of legal experience to the Attorney General's Office. This will be his second stint in the Office as he served as Chief Deputy Attorney General under former Attorney General Charlie Condon from 1995 to 1998. Prior to that, he served as an Assistant Solicitor and Deputy Solicitor in Charleston. Since 2010 he has been working in private practice in Columbia. "I have known Robert many years and have no doubt that he will be an excellent addition to our staff," said Wilson. "He not only has knowledge of this office and how it operates, but he also has extensive experience across the state in private practice and in the public sector. We look forward to having him as part of our team." Bolchoz is a 1986 graduate of The Citadel, and received a law degree from the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1989.

6. Witness to the End of Soviet Power: Twenty-Five Years Ago
Twenty-five years ago, on August 22, 1991, I stood amid a vast cheering crowd of tens of thousands of people outside the Russian parliament building in Moscow, the capital of the Soviet Union. They were celebrating the failure by diehard Soviet leaders to undertake a political and military coup d'etat meant to maintain dictatorial communist rule in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The Soviet regime had ruled Russia and the other 14 component republics of the U.S.S.R. for nearly 75 years, since the Bolshevik Revolution in November 1917 led by Vladimir Lenin and his communist cadre of Marxist followers. During that almost three-quarters of a century, first under Lenin and especially Josef Stalin and then their successors, historians have estimated that upwards of 64 million people - innocent, unarmed men, women and children - died at the hands of the Soviet regime in the name of building the "bright, beautiful future" of socialism. Millions Dead - The forced collectivization of the land under Stalin in the early 1930s, alone, is calculated to have cost the lives of nine to twelve million Russian and Ukrainian peasants and their families who resisted the loss of their private farms and being forced into state collective farms that replaced them. Some were simply shot; others were tortured to death or sent to die as slave labor in the concentration and labor camps in Siberia or Soviet Central Asia known as the GULAG. Millions were slowly starved to death by a government-created famine designed to force submission to the central planning dictates of Stalin and his henchmen.

7. For Citadel coach Brent Thompson, career crisis was big break
In January of 2010, Citadel football coach Brent Thompson had reached a crisis point. The coaching career he'd chosen over a life in the military, the coaching career to which he'd devoted the last 12 years, seemed like it might be at an end. After seven years as an assistant at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa., a staff changeover left Thompson out of a job and growing desperate. "You start to think, 'What are you really qualified to do?'" Thompson says now. "I'd been in coaching a long time at that point, and reality starts to set in - there's not a lot else you are passionate about and really love to do, and now you are looking at having to change that. "After three or four weeks, you are still looking and the bills are coming in." That's when the fraternity that is college coaching went to work. Tommy Laurendine, who had been the offensive coordinator at Lenoir-Rhyne, was hired by Kevin Higgins, then head coach at The Citadel, to be the Bulldogs' offensive coordinator and to install the triple-option at the military school (a job Thompson applied for). That left Lenoir-Rhyne looking for a triple-option coach. A friend of Thompson's at Navy cold-called Lenoir-Rhyne coach Fred Goldsmith and put in a good word for Thompson. One interview later, Brent Thompson was hired as the Bears' offensive coordinator - on the same staff as Mike Houston. "So the best break of my career was when I took a pay cut of $20,000 and my wife took a $20,000 pay cut to go to Hickory, N.C.," Thompson said. "But looking back, it really was the best thing that could have happened."

8. Citadel soccer earns second straight victory
The Citadel women's soccer team earned its first road win of the 2016 season with a 2-0 win over Alabama A&M. The Bulldogs (2-0) scored quickly in the lightning-shortened game as Mady Riegel tallied her first goal of the season thanks to a rebound off the keeper at the 18:31 mark to hand The Citadel a 1-0 lead. The score was the ninth of the junior's career. Katherine Arroyo padded the Bulldogs’ lead just eight minutes later, finding the back of the net unassisted for her second goal of the season. The Citadel outshot Alabama A&M (0-3) 9-5 in the contest and had three corner kicks. Emilie Valenciano led the Bulldogs with four shots in the game and two shots on goal. Freshman goalkeeper Logan Leask was only tested once in the contest, registering one save in the first half. "A trip like this has its own unique challenges and we had to maintain high standards to get the win," head coach Ciaran Traquair said. "They are physical and can catch you on the break if you aren't switched on. Credit to Alabama A&M for digging in given the circumstances with weather. Lightning delays are always tricky, especially when it starts back with a corner against. We scored two good goals and were pushing for more as the game wore on. I'm delighted with the first road win and the way in which the ladies handled the occasion. I'm excited to continue getting better as a group next week."

9. Smith Leads Bulldogs In Tournament Finale
Outside hitter Moriah Smith set a program-record with 35 kills in a match, leading the Bulldogs to a 3-2 victory over Gardner-Webb in the finale of the Bulldog Battle on Saturday. "This was great start for us and a great weekend to finally test some of the things we have been working on," said head coach Craig Mosqueda. "We definitely have room to grow, but we saw a lot of good things from the team. I am really proud of the girls and their efforts this weekend." Smith hit .342 for the match and was dominant in the deciding fifth set with seven kills. Setter Logan Smith finished with 67 assists, the second most in a match in Bulldogs' history. The Citadel won its third straight first set to start the season, defeating Gardner-Webb 25-17 to open the match. In set two, the Bulldogs rallied from a 19-13 deficit to send the set to extra points. With the score tied at 26, the visiting Gardner-Webb Bulldogs took the next two points to even the match at one set apiece. In set three, the Bulldogs hit a match-high .395 from the floor to cruise to a 25-14 victory. Smith led the way with six kills and a .600 hitting percentage, followed by right-side hitter Megan Sowell with four kills.

1. Chester Bridge to be renamed for fallen soldier
A bridge in Chester will soon be renamed for a hometown hero who gave his life in the War on Terror. This past Wednesday, the Chesterfield Board of Supervisors voted to rename the West Hundred Road Bridge after Sgt. Aaron Wittman, a US Army soldier killed in the line of duty in 2013. Sgt. Aaron Xavier Wittman, a native of Chester, Virginia, was born on Nov. 6, 1984 and graduated from Lloyd C. Bird High School in 2003, where he was a wrestler and on the track team. He served in the South Carolina Army National Guard while a student at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, deploying to Afghanistan with the 218th Brigade Combat Team in 2007. Sergeant Wittman enlisted in the United States Army in 2010 after completing his education at The Citadel. He deployed for his second combat tour in Afghanistan in 2012 with the 3rd Battalion, 69th Armor Regiment, 1st Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division. On Jan. 10, 2013 Sergeant Aaron Xavier Wittman died from wounds sustained while returning enemy fire to protect and save the lives of his combat team when his unit, which was on mounted patrol, came under small arms fire in Nangarhar Province, Afghanistan.

2. David Fraser: A lifelong love of boats and yachts
The cover photo of Fraser Yachts' Winter 2012 magazine featured a teenage David Fraser at the helm of a boat, stoically looking ahead to what proved to be an influential career selling yachts. Fraser, 94, will tell anyone who lends him an ear his love for boating dates back to his days aboard the 185-foot schooner, Anna R. Heidritter, adorning the magazine cover. Inside the magazine are other photographs of a young Fraser interacting with the vessel that started a lifelong love affair. A slightly different story is told by his wife, who says Fraser's love for boats actually goes as far back as his childhood, when he swayed back and forth on a tree-hanging swing but imagined himself rolling along the waves of the ocean while aboard a boat. Whichever way Fraser's love for boating and yachting started the yacht broker's passion for the waterways - and placing as many people onto the water as possible to share in the joys of sailing - sustained itself for an entire lifetime. After graduating from the Citadel in South Carolina, serving in the U.S. Navy and working aboard a trading vessel Fraser hopped into a car and drove west - all the way to California. Once there he applied for a job at a yacht brokerage. He started selling boats in Wilmington before moving to Newport Beach to do the same.

3. Sapakoff: Ridiculous that NCAA, SEC, ACC still don't monitor concussions
Deep within a Clemson football helmet and a 21-year-old skull, things suddenly got fuzzy on Aug. 8. Jay Guillermo, the Tigers' 6-3, 325-pound senior center, suffered a concussion during a preseason practice. "I was dazed and confused," Guillermo said. Clemson trainer Danny Poole and a team doctor met with Guillermo three times a day for a week before he was allowed to commence slamming his head into defensive linemen again... S.C. concussion stats - Seven ACC or SEC schools are part of the NCAA/DOD concussion study (Georgia, Florida, Miami, North Carolina, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech and Wake Forest). But the study apparently will not include concussion information obtained by The Post and Courier in a Freedom of Information Act survey of South Carolina, Clemson, The Citadel and Coastal Carolina football programs. Gamecock team doctors reported only three concussions in 2015, down from 10 in 2014. Thirteen of South Carolina's 21 concussions over the last three seasons came in games (see accompanying chart), while eight of Clemson's 14 concussions in 2015 came in practice. Clemson had eight concussions in practice in 2015, double the number of concussions the Tigers reported for all games and practices in 2014. Coastal Carolina had 19 concussions in both 2014 and 2015, while the Citadel had only seven each of those seasons. Even if schools are handling concussion protocol as safely and as reasonably possible, why wouldn't the NCAA and member conferences want thorough information, and answers to a few basic questions that would fit nicely into a data base?

The Citadel women's soccer team will hit the road for the first time this season as they travel to Alabama A&M for a non-conference matchup. "We have a tough challenge ahead of us this weekend," head coach Ciaran Traquair said. "There is always some doubt about how your squad handles the first away test of a new season. We are healthy, prepared and excited to try and build on our first win. I know we will need to show character at times and match their work rate." The Bulldogs come into Friday's game after defeating UNC Asheville 2-0 in the season opener on Aug. 21. Sophomores Emilie Valenciano and Katherine Arroyo tallied goals for The Citadel in the victory and Mady Riegel provided the lone assist on Arroyo's score. The Bulldogs finished with 12 shots, five shots on goal and nine corner kicks. Freshman goalkeeper Logan Leask was one of four Bulldogs to play all 90 minutes in the contest and posted a shutout in the first start of her collegiate career.

1. Citadel Notes: Bulldogs' depth will be tested early
It's old news that The Citadel will play its season opener next week at Mercer with a new quarterback under center, and now it seems the Bulldogs' offensive line may have a new look, as well. With senior center Ryan Bednar banged up in preseason camp, sophomore Tyler Davis has moved from right guard to center and freshman Drew McEntyre is getting reps at right guard. Coach Brent Thompson said Wednesday that McEntyre, a 6-3, 285-pounder from Calhoun, Ga., could start against Mercer next Thursday. "He'll probably start at right guard for us," Thompson said. "He's been practicing there for about two weeks and has done a good job with it. We haven't set the two-deep yet, but we like what he's done and he's gotten so much better." Thompson said that Bednar, who started all 13 games at center last year, should be ready to play against Mercer.

2. Building a successful program not easy in college-rich Charleston, S.C.
The method of scheduling football games for Charleston Southern University over the years includes keeping an eye on FBS powers Clemson and the University of South Carolina. It's not so much who those two are playing, but when. The Buccaneers do everything they can to keep from going head-to-head with the Tigers and Gamecocks. "We want people to go to both," said CSU athletic director Hank Small. "We've only been playing football since 1990. We're the new guy so we're building in everything we do."... In Charleston, S.C., it's a battle for people to notice that level. The Citadel military college, for instance, was established in 1842. The College of Charleston, which doesn't play football, dates back to 1770. "They've been here a long time, we've been in town just over 50 years," Small said. "The good thing is the area is just exploding with people that don't have those old ties so the fact we're a local school means more to them than a tie with Clemson, Citadel or South Carolina."

1. The Citadel's Bastin Hall approved
By a slim margin, the State Fiscal Accountability Authority approved a $31.8 million expansion of Coastal Carolina University's football stadium over the objection of Gov. Nikki Haley. Tuesday's contentious 3-2 vote cleared the way for the university to go forward even after the state Commission on Higher Education repeatedly rejected the costly expansion of Brooks Stadium, citing the potential increases to student fees. Legislators earlier this year circumvented the commission's decision by adding two budget items related to the expansion. It was done to legally secure funding through the authority. Those budget provisos survived Haley's veto pen in June and her criticism Tuesday that the body was setting a bad precedent. Borrowing plans for other universities also were approved Tuesday, including $17.5 million in bonds for construction of The Citadel's Bastin Hall, its new business school. Those plans and others already had received the commission’s approval.

2. The Citadel's Renew Included On Player of the Year Watch List
The Citadel football B-Back Tyler Renew is on the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) FCS National Player of the Year Trophy Watch List, it was announced Tuesday. Renew has earned numerous preseason accolades this summer. The senior was also named a preseason All-American by STATS and Athlon Sports as well as a preseason All-Southern Conference selection by the conference's coaches. Renew was a first-team STATS All-American in 2015 after he appeared in all 13 games with nine starts and compiled 839 yards and five touchdowns on 162 carries. He ranked seventh in the Southern Conference in rushing yards, and his 5.18 yards-per-carry average was eighth. The Columbia, South Carolina, native had his best game in his hometown, rushing for a career-high 174 yards and a career-high two touchdowns in the Bulldogs' 23-22 win at South Carolina to earn SoCon Offensive Player of the Week honors. His rushing total was the highest allowed by the Gamecocks at home since Darren McFadden rushed for 219 yards in 2006 and was higher than five teams' rushing totals against South Carolina in 2015. The next week, Renew was one of a school-record four 100-yard rushers in The Citadel's 41-38 win at Coastal Carolina, the first road playoff win in school history, gaining 129 yards with one touchdown on a career-high 28 carries.

3. Revisiting college football of the 1970s (and early 1980s) with 21st-century statistics
One great thing about college football is its long and often well-documented history. There are a lot of stories, and a lot of ways to tell those stories - including using statistics to drive the narrative. I've enjoyed reading Bill Connelly's series of posts at SBNation that look back at college football over the past 40+ years, including his ranking of teams based on their estimated S&P ratings in each given season (dating back to 1970). I know a fair bit about the history of the sport, but I've learned more than a few new things perusing these articles. If you want to get up to speed on what major college football was like in the latter part of the 20th century, you could do a lot worse than to read these yearly summaries. That includes The Citadel's history in I-A. Because the Southern Conference did not move to I-AA until 1982, The Citadel is included in the ratings from 1970 (the earliest year Connelly has written about so far) until 1981. So are the other SoCon teams of that era, along with the Ivy League squads and several other schools that are currently members of what is now known as the FCS. There is also a smattering of schools that no longer play football (Cal State-Los Angeles, Wichita State, and Tampa, just to name three of them).

1. Telling tales about Pat Conroy: The author's friends reminisce
Pat Conroy, Wolfian writer of sweeping Southern novels, is gone, but his legend grows. Conroy died of pancreatic cancer March 4 at his home in Beaufort, S.C., a town that reached its apotheosis in Conroy's prose. Beaufort is returning the favor. Friends and family have established a yearly Pat Conroy Literary Festival in that lowcountry Eden, and are working to create the Pat Conroy Literary Center on Beaufort's historic waterfront. Atlanta is also celebrating Conroy, starting with the keynote address at the AJC Decatur Book Festival, Sept. 2-4. Speaking will be novelist Rick Bragg, Conroy's widow and fellow novelist Cassandra King, Conroy's daughter Melissa Conroy, poet and novelist Ron Rash and journalist Bronwen Dickey. Pat graduated from Beaufort and attended the South Carolina military college The Citadel, an experience he both criticizes and praises in his novel "The Lords of Discipline."
