Cooper's four scores fuel Citadel rout of Chattanooga

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The Citadel football team visited the site of the national championship game Saturday. If the Bulldogs keep playing like this, they just might be one of the 16 FCS teams with a shot to play in that game. The Citadel thoroughly dominated a Chattanooga team fresh off a victory at Georgia Southern, riding Tory Cooper's school-record tying four touchdowns to a 41-16 win before 6,745 spectators at Finley Stadium. That's where the 16-team Football Championship Subdivision playoffs will end with the Dec. 14 title game. ...

Former Republican supports Obama

Gen. Merrill "Tony" McPeak, the former Air Force chief of staff, had always been a solid Republican; he ran the Bob Dole presidential campaign in Oregon and supported George W. Bush in 2000.  But shortly after Bush became president, McPeak said he realized he'd made a bad mistake. The administration's foreign policy was arrogant, he said, showed a lot of hubris and little understanding of how the world worked. In its first year, the Bush White House hurt the United States' standing in the world to the point that it might take a century to recover. "I didn't think they knew what they were doing," McPeak told The Citadel's Young Democrats Club on Friday. ...

Higher-ed panel tackles statewide plan

The chairman of a new committee charged with developing a statewide plan for higher education says he's optimistic the effort will be successful as long as members focus on the good of the entire state, not their individual constituencies.  Daniel Ravenel, a board member of the state's Commission on Higher Education for the past seven years, said three or four higher education plans have been bandied about during the past six or seven years. But none of them have been fully implemented. ...

James Oliver Rigney Jr. (editorial)

James Oliver Rigney Jr. was a native Charlestonian, Vietnam War hero, loyal alumnus and generous benefactor of The Citadel. But it was in the alter ego of Robert Jordan that he gained worldwide fame as a worthy successor to J.R.R. Tolkien and as a spinner of tales about an imagined world convulsed by the battle between good and evil. Jim Rigney was the author of the 11 novels of "The Wheel of Time" series, which sold 30 million copies and has been translated into 20 languages, according to his publisher, Tom Doherty, who spoke at the 58-year-old author's funeral Wednesday. ...

Silent treatment: Wisconsin's defenders off limits this week

After The Citadel silenced the crowd at Camp Randall Stadium last week, Wisconsin football coach Bret Bielema has done the same to his defense.  Bielema has placed his defensive players and coaches off limits to the media this week after they gave up 31 points and 377 yards to the underdog Bulldogs. He apparently was not pleased with the tone of much of the local coverage after the Badgers' 45-31 win in a game that was tied 21-21 at the half. ...

Hart: The Citadel shows again that small schools can be tough foes

Here are some realities about the suddenly unpredictable landscape of college football. It doesn't matter how many students or alums you have, or how many seats and suites you have in your stadium, or how often you jack up your outlandish ticket prices and seat surcharges. And it doesn't matter how high you're ranked, and how many New Year's Day bowl games you've played in or first-round draft choices you've produced. And it doesn't matter at all if your conference doesn't have an over-hyped, mostly invisible TV network, or a half-dozen tie-ins with bowl games. All that matters is that you have some skilled athletes who are coached well and inspired even better. When that happens, even schools from the subdivision formerly known as Pushovers can make your life perplexing at best, embarrassing at worst. ...

UW Not Taking Citadel For Granted
Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema doesn't want his players thinking about the Badgers' winning streak -- which is the best in the nation.   He doesn't want them worried about their fall in the polls either.  But he mainly doesn't want them to think the Citadel will be an easy win just because the team comes from the division formerly called One Double A.  The Wolverines were shocked two weeks ago by another team from the same conference: Appalachian State. ...

Nervous knobs make big impression in Citadel debuts

The day before his first college football game, Citadel freshman Cory Pope could not hold still. "I was so nervous, I was almost shaking," said Pope, an offensive lineman from Aiken. Considering that Pope is 6-2 and 312 pounds, that's a whole lot of shakin'. But the right guard from Silver Bluff High School acquitted himself well, as did the other six freshmen who saw action in Saturday's 35-14 win over rival Charleston Southern.
