'Back to the basics'

Ask a Citadel graduate to name the commandant of cadets during his years at the school, and he'll be able to tell you, even if it's been decades since he set foot on campus.  Cadets enrolled today will remember Col. Leo Mercado, an alumnus of the military college who spent the past 30 years in the U.S. Marine Corps. Mercado returned to The Citadel as commandant this year and is responsible for the military training, command and control of the 2,100 students in the Corps of Cadets.

For love of the game: Reese's spirit buoys Dogs

It's about 5 p.m. on a hot August afternoon, the 90-degree heat bouncing up off The Citadel's practice field. The Bulldogs are near the end of another grueling two-a-day practice when coach Kevin Higgins calls for the first-team defense to go live against the No. 1 offense.  While most of the players jog slowly to their positions, Terrence Reese -- 6-feet and 290 pounds of sweaty defensive tackle -- skips out on the field like a child through a field of daisies.

Mom still modest about march into Citadel lore

The screaming wouldn’t stop. The physical rigor grew worse. Products of The Citadel are used to both, but this was bad. Dark thunderclouds shook the sky. Back strain set in. The screaming continued. Enlarge photo Nancy Mace, the first woman Citadel graduate, says parenthood rivals the rigors of "knob year" there.  But Nancy Mace is not one to give up. She entered the military college of South Carolina with the world watching and plenty of cadets determined to run her off. Her father, a Citadel man who would return as its commandant, tried to talk her out of the school where morning starts in the dark and ends after hours of punishing mental and physical stress.

1_The Citadel: Some go home

Not everybody is meant to be a Citadel cadet.  When classes started Wednesday at the state's military college, 659 freshmen, known as knobs for their extremely short haircuts, stepped into classrooms. That's 62 fewer than showed up earlier this month for the rigorous military training that precedes the first day of class. That number, 8.6 percent of the class, is up 1.7 percentage points from last year, when 49 cadets, or 6.9 percent of the class, decided to leave.

Dogs' Biakabutuka following in his brother's footsteps on the gridiron

The name Biakabutuka still strikes fear and loathing in the hearts of Ohio State fans. Loyal Buckeyes vividly recall that Saturday in 1995 when Tim Biakabutuka ran 37 times for 313 yards to lead Michigan to a 31-23 upset of an Ohio State team that was 11-0 and ranked No. 2 in the nation. The name Biakabutuka lives on in college football these days at The Citadel, where Tim's younger brother, Remi, is a walk-on freshman running back for the Bulldogs. No Citadel coach is comparing Remi to his brother, who went on to a six-year NFL career with the Carolina Panthers. But the 5-10, 180-pounder from Montreal has a chance to be a solid contributor at the military school, which could find itself in dire need of running backs this season. "When you evaluate tape from Canada, you are not sure what you are getting," Citadel coach Kevin Higgins said.

The boasting -- at least sometimes by colleges that criticize the rankings -- is an tradition each August.  We'll let you go to the magazine itself to find out who is No. 1, but can assure you that there are no shockers. What may be more newsworthy is the annual fight over participation in the survey portion -- seen by many as the least valid part of the rankings.

Civil War might echo in bones found at USC

USC’s historic Horseshoe might hold a new and macabre piece of South Carolina’s past.  Workers repairing an underground steam pipe on Monday noticed human bone fragments behind the second-oldest building on campus, where a Civil War hospital once treated injured Confederate and Union soldiers.  “We don’t know what it is,” Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said of fragments that ranged from a skull cap to half-inch pieces. “It probably is Civil War remains, but we’re still going to do this as if it were a crime scene.”

Conroy's novel a love note to Charleston (video and photos included)

FRIPP ISLAND — If "South of Broad" is a love letter to Charleston, it is from an admirer whose ardor is tempered by the recognition of his paramour's flaws, her eccentricities and darker impulses. For all his gentle, and not-so-gentle, eviscerations of the city's gentry — some "fictitious" characters fare better than others — Pat Conroy's affection for the city is palpable, and he delights in sharing with the uninitiated.

Campus Security, Examined

Most colleges have campuswide emergency plans that meet minimum standards set by national safety groups, according to a new survey -- which also shows several key areas of potential vulnerability.  The National Campus Safety and Security Project survey, the first major product of a multi-association initiative begun last year and financed by the Lilly Endowment, aims to establish a baseline to which future advances (or backslides) in emergency planning by colleges and universities can be compared. The survey examines a wide range of topics, including not just the existence and breadth of emergency plans but also issues involving organizational structure and budgeting for campus safety and security.

Conroy looks 'South of Broad'

Pat Conroy is a voluptuary of language. Some readers of "South of Broad," his first novel in 14 years, will want to reach for the red pen, but more of us will lean back and luxuriate in Conroy's large-hearted story and smoldering prose.  Conroy knows how to write page-turning entertainment. Before page 10, he's teased readers with the inexplicable death of a golden teenage boy, the mental illness of the golden boy's morbid brother, the breakdown of a family, and something decisive having to do with orphans, a drug bust on East Bay Street and new neighbors. Add to these teasers the promise that "fate comes at you cat-footed, unavoidable, and bloodthirsty," and the helpless, plot-thirsty reader is snared.

Climate change, energy dependence threaten national security

The 20th Century was the world's most violent 100 years — dominated by two global conflicts, plus a "cold" U.S.-Soviet confrontation that sometimes turned "hot" via proxy wars. Typically, the fights were over political ideas and control of land and people to achieve largely political ends. Our Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines can not only increase their mission effectiveness but can become more "green" and show the rest of us how to follow suit. The numerous military bases here in South Carolina can be among the innovation trend-setters.

The offensive line, Higgins said, is "the biggest and strongest that we've had." And with some new coaches and a switch back to a 4-3 alignment, the defense should improve.

Hawks lose rare day game (interview with Richard Jones '10)

An inning with ...  Richard Jones - The Chicago Cubs selected the catcher in the ninth round of this year's amateur draft. Jones, who is from Sumter, S.C., went to school at The Citadel, which is known as the military college of South Carolina.

Why did you decide to forgo your senior year at The Citadel to play professional baseball?

"It was about 50-50 for me, really. Obviously, everybody wants to play for the Cubs. They are one of those teams — Yankees, Red Sox and Cubs — that are the traditional teams. Once my roommate, and the guy that hit right behind me, Chris McGuiness, who went 13th to Boston, said he was going, I kinda had to go because he was my protection."

What is a common misnomer about The Citadel?

"A lot of people think we all have to go into the military, but we don't. Only about a third of us do. Over half the school is business majors, and I was as well. It is more like a super-charged fraternity than a military school."
