Furman RB Brown returns for stretch run

Not many teams could absorb the loss of a preseason all-conference running back without missing a yard or two.  But Furman, 3-2 heading into this week's game with Samford, has come close.  Junior Mike Brown was named to the preseason All-Southern Conference team this year, and with good reason. The 5-8, 191-pounder was the third-leading returning rusher among SoCon running backs after totaling 823 yards and five touchdowns for the Paladins last season, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.

The Pastor Who Has Obama's Attention

The Rev. Jeremiah Wright is long gone; Rick Warren, just an Inauguration Day memory. The hordes of ministers around town who were hoping they'd somehow wind up with the first family in their pews have (mostly) given up.  The president has been pastorless for quite a while now. Well, sort of.  Seventy miles from Washington's prying eyes, Barack Obama has been attending church from time to time at Camp David, where services are led by a 39-year-old Navy chaplain with a famous last name, a compelling life story and a fervent belief in a God who works miracles.

Author to discuss memoir on his father's time in WWII

Getting away from it all to write is the idyll of many an aspiring novelist, the more isolated the setting the better. No TV, no phones, no family, no distractions of any kind. Just interior and exterior vistas. Del Staecker found his retreat in a two-room cabin in Idaho -- real Jack London stuff -- though the locale was chosen by necessity, not preference. He produced his first two novels there by hand, in quick succession, beginning the sequel to his mystery-thriller "The Muted Mermaid," the same day he completed the original manuscript. All with the echoes of tragic events.

The first shots of what would become the American Civil War were fired by cadets of the Citadel military college that January day in 1861. Their artillery barrage successfully turned back a ship, the Star of the West, that was attempting to bring supplies to the Union-held Fort Sumter.

On Friday an unmanned spacecraft the size of a school bus will purposely crash land on the South Pole of the moon.

If there is water in large enough quantities, it is possible that human life could be sustained on the moon for future astronaut missions.  Propelling a multi-million dollar spacecraft -- the Lunar CRater Observation and Sensing Satellite (LCROSS) -- at the moon’s surface knowing it will not survive the impact is the brainchild of a team of scientists that included Luke Sollitt, an assistant professor of physics at The Citadel.

And that's what makes next year's convention so important.

The Citadel Football Press Conference Monday, Oct. 5

On the team Sunday at practice after the loss - e had practice on Sunday. One of the neat things is coming out to practice and looking into the eyes of your players, and to see Dewitt and the other seniors and how they handled themselves on the practice field yesterday. They did a great job, coming back, bouncing back and understanding that there is a lot of football left.  Yes it was very disappointing but also knowing that there can be a lot of improvement still to come and we can have a lot of success this year.

Appalachian escapes Citadel with overtime victory

The Appalachian State football team escaped a 30-27 Southern Conference nail-biter at The Citadel on the strength of a 29-yard Jason Vitaris field goal Saturday.  The Mountaineers got off to a slow start, controlling the ball for only three and a half minutes of the first quarter.  After two botched field goal attempts in the first half, ASU entered the locker room trailing the Bulldogs 13-7.

Heartbreaker: Bulldogs edged in overtime by Mountaineers

As Jason Vitaris' 29-yard field goal sailed through the uprights behind him, Citadel defensive tackle Terrence Reese pounded the grass in frustration.  His No. 99 jersey soaked in sweat, Reese tried to get to his feet before he crumpled back to the turf. His legs no longer functioning properly, his face a mask of pain, Reese had to be helped to the locker room by offensive line coach Kevin Olecki.

No ASU hangover this year

Citadel players were quite honest last week about how much their 47-21 loss at Appalachian State last year impacted the rest of their season. That defeat was the first of six straight losses that led to a 4-8 record in 2008.  "It took us a few weeks to get over that," senior defensive end Dewitt Jones admitted.

Citadel board OKs spirit flag plans

The Citadel's Board of Visitors on Friday approved a plan to begin using as its "spirit flag" a replica of a red palmetto flag that likely flew over the cadet battery on Morris Island when it fired on the supply ship Star of the West in the days leading to the Civil War.

Convention of heroes shaping up

Army veteran John Baker, a "tunnel rat" during the Vietnam War, remembers his first gathering of fellow Medal of Honor recipients nearly 30 years ago.  It was an amazing assembly of men: more than 350 heroes from a century of wars who went above and beyond at a moment when terror and uncertainty reigned around them. But today, there are just 95 living members of America's most-select military fraternity left. And that's what makes next year's convention so important.  Officials gathered at The Citadel on Friday to begin the one-year countdown until Charleston hosts the 2010 national convention of the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

Flag discovered in Iowa museum is likely Civil War-era original

In the days leading to the Civil War, a battery of Citadel cadets on Morris Island fired at the supply ship Star of the West as it approached Fort Sumter, forcing the ship to turn around.  A red palmetto flag flew over the cadets during the attack on Jan. 9, 1861, which marked a victory for them, and was a significant precursor to the war.  The war officially began on April 12, 1861, with the Confederate bombardment of Fort Sumter. But some Citadel alumni and others consider the shots fired at Star of the West to be the first shots of the Civil War.

Higgins: 'App State is still App State'

Appalachian State enters today's football game at The Citadel fresh off a three-game losing streak, and with a losing record. 
The last time those particular stars were aligned was in 2003.  No coincidence, then, that Sept. 27, 2003, was the last time The Citadel managed to defeat App State. In fact, the Bulldogs' 24-21 victory that day marks their only win over the Mountaineers in the last 15 years.

1_Historic find — in a storage closet

In the days leading to the Civil War, a battery of Citadel cadets on Morris Island fired at the supply ship Star of the West as it approached Fort Sumter, forcing the ship to turn around.  ...  The war officially began on April 12, 1861, with the Confederate bombardment of Fort Sumter. But some Citadel alumni and others consider the shots fired at Star of the West to be the first shots of the Civil War.  The red palmetto flag became a powerful symbol for the state's military college. The school adopted a replica of the flag as its "spirit flag" in 1992 and called it "Big Red."  But nobody knew, until now, what happened to the original flag. The school has found what almost certainly is the original Civil War-era "Big Red" in a museum in Iowa.

2_Making the case

Why the flag is thought to be the original "Big Red":

--It has an inward-facing crescent in the upper-left corner, a common Charleston-area symbol of secession.

--Forensic tests indicate it is.

--Written historical accounts support its authenticity.

--There are strong similarities between the red palmetto flag and the other flags known to have been made by Hugh Vincent.

Armanti no joke to Bulldogs

They are calling it "The Samford Scramble" and "Nintendo Meets Harry Houdini." It was No. 2 on ESPN SportsCenter's top 10 plays of the weekend.  On the play in question, Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards avoided a Samford tackler, dropped the football and picked it back up, sidestepped a second sacker, then somehow found a wide-open Cedric Baker for a 16-yard gain and a first down while being hit by a third tackler.  "Just incredible," Citadel coach Kevin Higgins said this week

Buncum filling in nicely

Like the rest of The Citadel Bulldogs, Jeremy Buncum was pulling hard for Mel Capers to play football again.  "I was really hoping he'd be able to come back," said Buncum, a sophomore linebacker from Stratford High School.  But when official word came two weeks ago that congenital spinal stenosis had ended Capers' football career, Buncum knew his role on the Bulldogs' defense had changed.
