1. The Citadel has some fun on Twitter at No. 1 Alabama's expense after entering halftime tied
At halftime Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium, The Citadel and No. 1 Alabama were tied, 10-10. That's not a typo. The Bulldogs, members of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision and the Southern Conference, made the 500-mile trip from Charleston to Tuscaloosa and had the Tide on the ropes at home. Five different players ran the ball for The Citadel in the opening 30 minutes of play, including Dante Smith, who became the first player to score against Alabama in the month of November. The Bulldogs didn't throw a single pass in the first two quarters. Bulldogs players weren't the only ones having fun. The Citadel's Twitter account might be having the best performance of the day. After Alabama boasted about "No score November," The Citadel responded, and then took a shot at both Mississippi State and LSU. he Tide fumbled the kickoff to start the second half, and the Bulldogs failed to take the lead, missing a 45-yard field goal. Alabama marched 72 yards down the field, scoring in five plays to re-take the lead. If The Citadel is unable to keep it close, it was fun while it lasted.

2. The Citadel is throwing shade at Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State as it battles the Tide
No. 1 Alabama isn't exactly taking care of business against The Citadel, and The Citadel's Twitter account is making sure that the whole world -- including a couple other SEC teams -- knows it. Dante Smith scored from 45 yards out in the second quarter to tie the game at seven and make Citadel the first team to score against the Crimson Tide since Tennessee did it on Oct. 20. The Crimson Tide shut out LSU and Mississippi State consecutively prior to Saturday's game vs. these Bulldogs. The Citadel made sure to point that out to LSU and MSU on Twitter. The Bulldogs had 150 rushing yards and didn't attempt a pass in the first half against the Crimson Tide. The Citadel Twitter account has been going strong all day. After winning the opening toss, it made sure to count that as a win.

3. The guy behind The Citadel’s savage Twitter account explains the strategy
From his third-row seat in the Bryant-Denny Stadium press box, Parker King set the college football internet ablaze. He said he’s “just a graphic designer,” but King was the name behind The Citadel football team’s Twitter account that went viral during the 50-17 loss at Alabama. The regimented military school let its hair down Saturday in Tuscaloosa and the masses noticed. “It’s been pretty surreal,” King said after the game in the room just off from the small visitors’ locker room in Bryant-Denny Stadium. “We knew if our players came in here and performed the way we knew they could, we would have a small window of essentially going viral on Twitter. We had a good plan that if we performed, we’d be ready. And we’d be willing to take some shots at some people in the SEC.” They sure did. Their big tweet of the day followed a second-quarter touchdown that tied the score 7-7. It ended Alabama’s shutout streak that covered both the LSU and Mississippi State wins and King was well aware.

3.1 WATCH: The Citadel calls its shot against No. 1 Alabama in uniform hype video

The only real story of interest for No. 1 Alabama as it takes on The Citadel Saturday is how long quarterback Tua Tagovailoa plays seeing as the Heisman Trophy's consensus frontrunner has been battling knee and quad injuries. Still, The Citadel is not interested in playing dead for 60 minutes -- not when it can shoot its shot and talk a little smack in the process. In a uniform unveil video for the upcoming game, the FCS program not only said it wanted Bama, it took a nice little dig at South Carolina in the process. Because why ruffle the feathers of one SEC team when you can do it for two teams? he highlights are courtesy of The Citadel's 23-22 win over the Gamecocks from this time three years ago in Columbia, South Carolina. Granted, South Carolina went 3-9 that year and coach Steve Spurrier resigned midseason. Playing the No. 1 team in the country, which has been winning games by a margin of 36 points per game, is a little different.

4. The Best Universities For a Bachelor’s Degree
Choosing a college isn’t a simple task – you want to pick a school that will challenge you intellectually and provide you with life experiences that help you grow as a person. But unless you want to live in your parents’ basement for the rest of your life, you also want to pick a school that prepares you for a successful career, both in terms of getting hired and equipping you with the skills to properly do your job. Not to mention the fact that the cost of college is higher than ever, and repaying financial aid can be costly later in life. PayScale’s College Salary Report has ranked colleges and universities by the median salaries of their alumni. By knowing how much you can expect to earn after getting your bachelor’s degree, you can choose a school wisely and set yourself up for future financial security, especially when evaluating how much to borrow to help pay for your education.

5. Public colleges where graduates earn over $55K right out of school

Despite an improving economy, finding a well-paying job after getting a college degree remains a challenge. The recession decimated the economy in the late 2000s, which led to thousands of companies outsourcing or automating the entry-level jobs that once served to help recent grads start climbing the career ladder. Older, unemployed professionals applied for many of these so-called entry-level positions, resulting in stiff competition within the job pool. Many entry-level positions now require three years experience or more working in-field. Some have turned to unpaid internships to get the experience needed to land their dream job, but many argue that forcing people to work without pay exploits their labor.

6. Presidential Hubris: “Let Me Run the Country”

The television news cycle and social media have been filled with comments and criticisms concerning the combative exchange of words between the current president and CNN reporter James Acosta during a recent White House press conference. What seemingly received little or no attention were the words that Donald Trump used in describing his role as the president of the United States during the drama of that press conference. Mr. Acosta wanted to know why the president viewed as an “invasion” the caravan of Central Americans moving through Mexico toward the U.S. border, rather than as simply a group of migrants on their way to the United States; and he wanted to know if this was not demonizing those people who were still hundreds of miles away from the United States. President Trump never directly answered the reporter’s question, other than to say that that was how he viewed it and it was a matter of differing opinions. Trump did say that he was not against migration to the United States as long as people come in legally to fill jobs needing to be done, given that hundreds of businesses were said also to be coming to America.

8. Best of Week 12: The Citadel loses big, wins bigger on Twitter
Dave Wilson is an editor for ESPN.com since 2010. He previously worked at The Dallas Morning News, San Diego Union-Tribune and Las Vegas Sun. Welcome to Week 12. It's a good week to take it easy and watch some football, before next week when you're going to be taking it easy, watching football AND eating a ton. Moderation is the key. Today's game against Alabama was a big opportunity for The Citadel, a military college with about 2,300 undergrad students, who make up the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. But despite a 50-17 loss -- it was 10-10 at halftime! -- it turned out to be an even bigger opportunity for their Twitter account to mock the rest of the SEC. Before the game, they taunted South Carolina Corps of Cadets. But despite a 50-17 loss -- it was 10-10 at halftime! -- it turned out to be an even bigger opportunity for their Twitter account to mock the rest of the SEC. Before the game, they taunted South Carolina, reminding them of their 23-22 victory over them in 2015.

8.1 Citadel 1st half at Alabama reminds Georgia of Georgia Tech option challenge

Georgia football probably didn’t need a reminder of just how challenging its game will be against rival Georgia Tech next Saturday, but The Citadel provided it, anyway. The Citadel, an FCS military school from Charleston, S.C., played No. 1-ranked Alabama to a 10-10 tie through the first half on Saturday in Tuscaloosa because of its disciplined option-style offense. Alabama won the game, 50-17, but not before The Citadel had made a statement. The No. 5-ranked Bulldogs play host to the rival Yellow Jackets — an FBS school with bigger, better talent than The Citadel — at noon next Saturday at Sanford Stadium looking to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive. Georgia designates practice time each week to Georgia Tech’s option attack, but the discipline style it requires is unlike any other team the Bulldogs play. The precise timing of the pitch and ability of defenders to handle low, sometimes dangerous cut blocks, make playing an option team a headache for most defenses.

Charleston Southern must beat Campbell to extend streak of winning seasons

Charleston Southern can’t win a conference championship and won’t be playing in the FCS playoffs, but the Bucs still have something big to play for. CSU has posted five consecutive winning seasons and would like to stretch that streak to six. The Bucs carry a 4-5 record into Saturday’s game at Campbell University and then play at The Citadel on Nov. 29 to wrap up their season. The math is simple. Win the next two games and finish the season at 6-5. CSU (2-2 in the Big South) is coming off one of its most impressive games of the season, a 16-0 shutout of Gardner-Webb last Saturday. Despite failing to reach 300 total yards in offense for the eighth time this season, the CSU defense had its best outing with seven sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Campbell (6-4, 1-3) is transitioning into the Big South Conference in football this fall. The Camels, under the direction of former Carolina Panthers safety Mike Minter, picked up their first league win last week against Presbyterian. Campbell is 0-2 against Charleston Southern, losing games in 2013 and 2014. CSU’s senior players are 35-14 over the last five seasons and want to end their conference career on a positive note. They also would love to enter the game against The Citadel on a two-game winning streak.

1. The Citadel and the Royal Navy pay tribute to submarine used during World War II

On Veterans Day, The Citadel and the visiting officers from the Royal Navy payed tribute to a British submarine that was critical for the United States and the United Kingdom during World War II. Navy ROTC cadets and Navy ROTC active duty professors were joined by British officers who took part in a wreath laying ceremony commemorating the submarine, the HMS Seraph. The ceremony marked the 76th anniversary of a mission during the war called "Operation Torch" during which it carried General Mark Clark, the 12th president of The Citadel. "We've had the great delight and privilege of coming to Charleston for four days," said Commander William King, of the Royal Navy. "And as part of that visit, we established links with The Citadel and we've come to commemorate this old submarine that was so critical in the second world war for both of our countries."

3. The Citadel working to make archives accessible online

A dedicated team of students, volunteers and interns is helping people around the world see the treasures held in The Citadel military college’s archives. “This website has been a long time coming,” school archivist Tessa Updike said. She has made it her mission to digitize and place as much material as possible online. “I saw the need immediately for us to put all of those digital materials, all of that digital content available for The Citadel into one place where it could be cataloged, searched and browsed.” Some of the materials were previously available online through the Lowcountry Digital Library managed by the College of Charleston. “The history of The Citadel is fascinating to a lot of people around the world so we have a lot of researchers who are using our materials, studying not only the history of our institution but also people who are connected with our institution,” Updike said. With the help of volunteers, the Student Museum Club and academic interns, letters, diaries, directories, photos, and academic papers are being uploaded for digital access. Updike said previously, researchers had to visit The Citadel in order to access items such as college publications and early records commonly used in genealogy research.

4. The Citadel topic at Sumter County Genealogical Society

The Citadel, South Carolina's storied military college, will be the topic at 7:30 p.m. Monday, when Julian Frasier is the guest speaker for the Sumter County Genealogical Society. The meeting, open to the public, will be held at Swan Lake Presbyterian Church, 912 Haynsworth St. Frasier, owner and president of Frasier Tire Service Inc., has announced his topic as "The Citadel - 175 Years."

President Trump accused Mr. Acosta of being rude and horrible, especially in his conduct toward the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The president also repeated his often-made claim that CNN is the disseminator of “fake news.”

College football kickoff Week 12: SEC pauses in the homestretch
It’s time for a breather. At least in a healthy chunk of the SEC, anyway. As is recent custom, the penultimate weekend of the regular season means a step outside of conference play for more than half of the conference. The league’s spotlight game on CBS this week is Missouri-Tennessee. It’s logistically easier to pull off than in other conferences because the SEC plays an eight-game league schedule, unlike the nine-game conference slates in the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12. It’s pragmatically brilliant, because it is designed to spread out the demands of conference play and (theoretically) provides a chance for teams to get breathers the week before rivalry showdowns. Hence, Alabama is playing host to The Citadel, Florida meets Idaho and South Carolina encounters Chattanooga in late-season games against FCS schools.

Frierson hits 10 3s, sparks The Citadel to 137-60 romp
Matt Frierson scored 30 points on 10 3-pointers, Lew Stallworth scored 13 points with 13 assists and The Citadel raced away from Johnson University 137-60 Wednesday night. Six Bulldogs scored in double figures in the lopsided contest. Zane Najdawi scored 18 points, making 10 of 10 at the foul line, Haden Brown added 15, Connor Kern 14 points with three 3-pointers, and Kaiden Rice added 11. Frierson finished one point shy of his career best, and his 10 treys matches teammate Quayson Williams for the program record. The Citadel shot 55 percent (47-85) with 18 3-pointers while Johnson, a small Christian university, made 20 of 76 shots (26 percent). The Bulldogs scored 40 points off 25 Johnson turnovers, out-rebounded Johnson 62-39 and held a 56-26 advantage on points in the paint. Anthony Young led the Suns with 11 points.

In the SEC, November just means more cupcakes but the empty calories haven't hurt at all
Nick Saban resisted the temptation – and we all know it lurked somewhere inside – to erupt this week. We knew the questions were coming. He knew the questions were coming. Someone had the temerity to ask Saban whether, given Tua Tagovailoa’s gimpy knee, he might rest the sophomore quarterback Saturday against The Citadel? “No. … No,” Saban told reporters Monday. “Why would we do that? I mean (are you trying) to say this is not an important game or he doesn’t need to play?” Well, yes. That’s exactly what they were saying – but Saban was finished; he left the room. It was good stuff, though. Even if it was mild by his standards,it was as predictable as th annual November date against an overmatched nonconference opponent.elcome, y’all, to the SEC’s Cupcake Weekend. While other leagues are fighting it out for conference titles (and College Football Playoff hopes), the SEC carves out time for a breather from the grind of a long season before the final push. Yeah, there are three conference games. But Alabama plays The Citadel. Georgia hosts Massachusetts. Florida has Idaho. South Carolina gets Chattanooga. Beyond those FCS opponents, it’s Rice at LSU, Liberty at Auburn and Alabama-Birmingham at Texas A&M (though that one is at least intriguing).

Previewing Alabama versus The Citadel: The Bulldog defense
When Alabama steps on the field Saturday against The Citadel, there’ll be little surprise in the course of things to come. The Tide will march down the field on the Bulldogs for the first few series, sit the starters in preparation for next week’s Iron Bowl, and let the reserves get those much-needed reps in against a thoroughly overmatched opponent. Schematically, the Bulldogs run a tricky defense, but it’s nothing like the units the Tide sees week in and week out in the SEC. Defensive coordinator Blake Harrell does a good job with what he has, and against the Citadel’s usual foes, they fare well enough. But against Alabama, the Bulldog defense will be little more than traffic cones on the Tide’s road to championship glory, as The Citadel is an opponent that simply can’t contend with Alabama’s offensive might (whether Tua Tagovailoa plays or not.) The Bulldogs run an interesting system that is built to stop the run and is adequate in that respect. The same can’t be said about the pass defense, as they give up almost 260 yards per game through the air. The front is a unique hybrid that features a four-man alignment with a dedicated hand-in-the-dirt linebacker called the KAT in the Citadel’s vernacular. They also repurpose on of their ‘backers as a rover-type hybrid safety they call the Bandit.

During the summer run-up to the season, Athlon Sports ranked “the most shameful college football games of 2018.” No. 4 on the list: The Citadel at Alabama. “Once again, the Crimson Tide are dining on a cupcake a week ahead of the Iron Bowl,” the writer opined. “Alabama could play all second- and third-stringers and still win this one comfortably. The Citadel went just 5-6 a year ago after winning back-to-back Southern Conference titles.” Thing is, he’s not wrong. Alabama coach Nick Saban insisted this week that he would play Heisman Trophy candidate Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback against The Citadel, despite a balky knee. Truth is, the No. 1-ranked and defending national champion Crimson Tide might beat the Bulldogs with Saban himself at QB. That’s the difference between one of the richest FBS programs in the nation (Alabama athletics earned $174 million in 2017) and an FCS program such as The Citadel, with an athletics budget of 17.6 million in 2017, according to USA Today. Alabama gives 85 football scholarships and has 63 four and five-star recruits on its 2018 roster, according to 24/7 Sports. The Citadel is limited to 63 scholarships and has zero four and five-star recruits. The huge disparities between the programs begs the question: Why play the game? The answer, as usual, has to do with money.

1. Car tires and brake pads produce harmful microplastics

There’s a big problem where the rubber meets the road: microplastics. Scientists analyzed more than 500 small particles pulled from the air around three busy German highways, and found that the vast majority — 89 percent — came from vehicle tires, brake systems and roads themselves. All together, these particles are classified by the researchers as microplastics, though they include materials other than plastic. Those particles get blown by wind and washed by rain into waterways that lead to the ocean, where the debris can harm aquatic animals and fragile ecosystems, says environmental scientist Reto Gieré of the University of Pennsylvania. He presented the findings on November 6 at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Indianapolis. Previous research has estimated that about 30 percent of the volume of microplastics polluting oceans, lakes and rivers come from tire wear. “We all want to reduce CO2 emissions” from vehicle exhaust, Gieré says. “But you can’t stop tire abrasion.” Traffic congestion makes the problem worse. Vehicles traveling at constant speeds, without so much brake use, produced fewer particles, the researchers found. Because some materials, including synthetic rubber, become coated in dust and other tinier bits of debris, they’re not always easy to identify. The researchers figured out what each particle was by examining each of them under a scanning electron microscope and running chemical analyses. “These [tire] particles are stealthy,” says John Weinstein, an environmental toxicologist at the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., who was not involved in the study.

2. The Lasting Legacies of World War I

This November marks the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I. The war ushered in a period of big government and paper money inflations. The most devastating examples were the hyperinflations in postwar Germany and Austria. The world still is under the influence of those same ideas of government paternalism and monetary central planning.
