RUNNING THE NUMBERS; THE PALMETTO BOWL, Citadel Football, and ESPN don’t add up to a successful deal when you factor in th
Dreams die hard and for Tommy McQueeney the death of the Palmetto Bowl must have been hard indeed. It was a bold scheme: build a new 35,000-seat football stadium for The Citadel on Stoney Field, near the campus. And to get the state and the City of Charleston to pony up $7 million for the project, McQueeney offered the ultimate plum — actually two of them. First would be the Palmetto Bowl, a postseason game, sanctioned by the NCAA, pitting the fifth-ranked Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) team against a Conference USA team. And to sweeten the pot, there would be a mid-season game between South Carolina State University and another historically black school. McQueeney said there is even “talk” of moving the I-AA Football Championship to Charleston. And ESPN had expressed an interest in televising one or more of these games...

Split Ends; Citadel defensive linemen no longer time-sharing
