The Citadel 5 Questions

Five years ago this month, former Citadel athletic director Les Robinson was searching for a new football coach, the Bulldogs' third in three years.  A reporter asked him if he wanted a coach who ran the triple-option offense, the attack that carried The Citadel to a Southern Conference title in 1992.  "I would not hire a coach and say you have to run the option," Robinson said back then. "But I do think it's in our best interest, from the people I've talked with, to be running some form of the wishbone or of the option."

South Carolina and most of its counties fail, as do many other Southern states, to collect property taxes on items that more diligent states such as Virginia collect to sustain their yearly costs.  As a young graduate of The Citadel, I took a job in Falls Church, Va.

In Augusta, the doctor will see you now; it's his 100th birthday

Nurse Leslie Rice and the staff at Obstetrics and Gynecology Associates of Augusta had an unusual problem recently.  "Nobody carries cards that say '100,'" she told physician W.G. "Curly" Watson, who just laughed. They finally found one birthday card at one store that fit the bill.  Watson turned 100 Thursday and was in his office before a big celebration at University Hospital, where he has practiced since 1947.  According to University, he is the oldest physician in the country still practicing. He is also the oldest living graduate of The Citadel, where he was top of his class in 1931.

While Liz Cheney of Keep America Safe spoke to a mostly-full Marriott Ballroom, a buzz circulated among event organizers: Trust us, you should be there. When Cheney wrapped, the surprise was revealed — her father, the former vice president, was on deck. Members of the media were informed that this was his only interview — he was going to be rushed away immediately — but a group of Citadel cadets were allowed to stand along the path out for a quick photo.  “We’re all big fans,” said Gerry Ratchford, a junior at the Citadel. “I think it’s ridiculous that the sitting president and vice president feel like they need to engage him.”

A low-key holiday

At what may be the state's pre-eminent presidential historical site, the Heyward-Washington House in downtown Charleston, the holiday passed quietly.  If you had to stop and think "What holiday?" you probably aren't alone.  The name change, according to David Preston, a history professor at The Citadel, allowed the holiday to also honor Abraham Lincoln, whose birthday falls this month as well (Feb. 12). That way, the holiday honors both the symbol of the Revolution and the president who saved the Union during the Civil War (well, some South Carolinians may feel differently).

College governance should be more centralized, not less

OUR STATE'S colleges and universities long have complained that they have to jump through too many bureaucratic hoops to satisfy a Legislature that is providing them with ever-smaller portions of their operating budgets. And understandably so. 
Theirs tend to be the first budgets cut when money is tight and the last ones restored when the economy roars back. And adding insult to injury, the legislators who lead the charge to slash their budgets complain the most when they raise tuition to make up the difference.

Colleges' out-of-state trend raises red flag

Out-of-state students have fueled much of the growth at South Carolina's three public research institutions, according to an analysis of figures from the S.C. Commission on Higher Education.  But some legislators are wondering whether it's time to put a brake on the rising number of out-of-state students.  The percentage of S.C. students attending Clemson University, the Medical University of South Carolina and the University of South Carolina at Columbia has dropped over the past decade. Meanwhile, the number of out-of-state students at those schools has risen much faster than the number of in-state students.

There could actually be a scholarship, named for Buyer, for Indiana residents who attend his alma mater.  According to the foundation's incorporation papers filed with the secretary of state in 2003, the first $100,000 of any money left after debts are paid would go to The Citadel to provide scholarships for Hoosiers attending the military college in South Carolina.

Citadel players have not forgotten Bell's miracle.

With Samford defenders hounding Cameron Wells' every dribble, The Citadel needed someone else to play the hero Thursday night.  Guard Ben Cherry, a walk-on freshman, was the unlikely candidate.  Cherry connected on three huge 3-pointers down the stretch, and Bryan Streeter's rebound basket with 12 seconds remaining lifted The Citadel to a 61-57 win over Samford before 1,440 fans at McAlister Field House.

Andre Roberts (WR) The Citadel: Arguably the best receiver for the South this week. He showed all week that he has the athleticism and receiving skills to play at the next level. He has soft and natural hands that allow for big plays. He makes clutch catches and adjusted to some off-target throws to make the grabs and should move up a full draft round as a result.
