Chants to face popular former assistant coach Drayton in season opener at The Citadel

It’s been more than two-and-a-half years since Maurice Drayton last worked as an assistant football coach for Coastal Carolina, but there are still Chanticleer players he talks with regularly, players he recruited who consider him veritable family. So imagine their surprise when he told them earlier this year that he had taken a new job as defensive coordinator at The Citadel, which just happens to be the first game on the Chants’ 2014 schedule.

Former Rock Hill Bearcat Mitchell Jeter will return as a starter for The Citadel at defensive tackle. But he's one of the few veterans for the Bulldogs, which released its depth chart this week. The Citadel features nine freshman in the two-deep. Among the "knobs," as true freshmen are called in The Citadel parlance, appearing in the two-deep is former South Pointe star Josh Massey, who is listed as a safety.

The Citadel: August 22, 2014 - Yesterday's 16th Annual Bulldog Kickoff Classic Presented by Wells Fargo and held at Wild Dunes Resort - from all early accounts - was another huge success and we thank Committee Chairman Rod Moseley '74 and his group of volunteers for their hard work in orchestrating this sold-out event. We also understand that last night's Shrimp & Beer Night, hosted by The Citadel Club of Charleston at the Beach House, was also a grand occurrence.

Mike Houston's credentials as a head football coach are impressive. In three seasons at Lenoir-Rhyne, he led the Bears to a 29-8 record, three conference titles and, last season, a berth in the national championship game.  But - and there is a but here - all of that was at the NCAA Division II level.

Citadel position report: Defensive line will rotate like 'a hockey line'

Citadel defensive line coach Roy Tesh has been known to shuffle so many players in and out of football games that his substitution pattern is more like a shift change in hockey.  "Coach (Mike) Houston says I like to send in hockey lines," said Tesh, who coached for six years at Lenoir-Rhyne with Houston. "We're going to play a lot of bodies, rotate as many fresh guys in there as we can. There may be some situations where backups play as many snaps as the starters."

4.1 Citadel position report: It's (Aaron) Miller time at quarterback

The difference is subtle, but meaningful. In post-practice sprints, it's Aaron Miller who leads the backs and receivers, rep after rep. It's Miller who urges a lineman to step it up. It's Miller who claps a sideline visitor on the back.  It's Miller's turn to lead The Citadel football team as the starting quarterback, and by all accounts the senior from Clover is filling the role quite nicely.

Among the first mentioned by many, is the Virginia Tech Rating System. It is considered the “gold standard” by many equipment managers, including those at the University of South Carolina, and The Citadel. However, until we started asking questions, some high schools in our area used helmets that the Virginia Tech study says, put kids at greater risk for concussions.

Citadel position report: Wide receivers no longer 'on an island'

A job description for wide receiver at The Citadel might read like this:

"1. Block. 2. Block. 3. Block some more. 4. Catch an occasional pass. 5. Get back to blocking."

Needless to say, it takes a lot of patience to play receiver in the Bulldogs' triple-option offense. The Bulldogs three only 12.7 passes per game last season, and might not throw it that much this season under new coach Mike Houston. Citadel receivers have to take pride in much more than their pass-catching skills.

1.1 Experts: SC Gov. Haley is the favorite to win in November

Woodard, who taught Sheheen as an undergraduate, was more blunt about the senator’s chances: “Vincent Sheheen is a great candidate. He just has the wrong letter after his name. He’d be a superstar (in the GOP).” Another obstacle for Sheheen is the fact that South Carolinians tend to stick with candidates already in office, said Citadel political scientist Scott Buchanan, who joined Woodard in predicting a Haley win. “I don’t see them voting against the incumbent.”
