Surgery scheduled for Lawson

Odds are, The Citadel will play a basketball game this season in which fewer points are scored. But that's what the scoreboard read after the touchdowns settled in the Bulldogs' overtime victory over Furman three weeks ago. And that score was symptomatic of Southern Conference football this season, when scoring is off the charts and there's little defense for the defense. ...

Dogs QB Lawson doubtful for App State

If The Citadel is to defeat two-time defending national champion Appalachian State this week, and stay alive in the race for a Southern Conference championship, the Bulldogs almost certainly will have to do it without their starting quarterback, Duran Lawson.  Lawson, a senior who has started 19 straight games, is listed as doubtful for Saturday's homecoming game with App State after injuring his left knee in last week's 21-17 loss at Georgia Southern. Coach Kevin Higgins would not definitely rule Lawson out, but barring a remarkable turnaround late in the week, The Citadel's starting QB will be Bart Blanchard, a redshirt freshman who has thrown eight passes this season. ...

Foster's huge fourth quarter sinks Citadel

STATESBORO, Ga. — As he sprinted down the left sideline, directly in front of The Citadel bench, Jayson Foster watched himself on the video screen at the north end of Paulson Stadium. "Don't get caught," the Georgia Southern quarterback told himself. No chance of that, at least on this play. Corralled most of the afternoon by a determined Citadel defense, the Eagles' speedy senior broke loose for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. His 80-yard sprint to the end zone with 7:28 left in the game lifted No. 22 Georgia Southern to a 21-17 victory over the 25th-ranked Bulldogs on Saturday in front of a homecoming crowd of 18,506. ...

But this year adds a new wrinkle—how the recent market turmoil will affect college endowments.  For some of the priciest schools, the above-average investment returns in recent years—as the markets boomed and hedge fund investments soared—have helped take the edge off upward pressure on tuition. If those returns suffer, those relentless tuition bills could edge even higher. ...

Commentary: SoCon 'nerds' get revenge on Big Three

Remember the old days of the Southern Conference when the “Big Three” ruled like Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin? ... Oh, wait. It did have some meaning. Seems that Wofford and Elon are in a tie for first place in the Southern Conference after the Phoenix beat Wofford 24-13. The two are tied with The Citadel for the league lead, each sporting a 3-1 record.  If this situation was a movie, it would be called “The Revenge of The Nerds.” ...

One Paralyzing Play, and Dream Vanishes

CHARLESTON, S.C. | Only if you ask, only if you really get him talking, will Herman Jacobs say those familiar words that echo throughout parks and projects and apartment complexes everywhere: "I could have gone pro." One play ensured Jacobs' dream would never have a chance. A little more than 22 years ago, as an East Tennessee State running back with NFL potential, Jacobs took a typical pitch on a typical play and made typical contact with Citadel linebacker Marc Buoniconti. The outcome was anything but typical. Buoniconti, the son of former Miami Dolphins linebacker Nick Buoniconti, was instantly paralyzed, losing the use of his arms and legs. In a sense, Jacobs became paralyzed, as well. He lost his focus, his passion for the game, his zest for life. ...
