Fullback is a crucial position in the triple-option offense. Think of workhorse Everette Sands leading The Citadel to a Southern Conference football championship in 1992; of Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson averaging 6.6 yards per carry for his four-year career, winning the Walter Payton Award in 1999 and carrying the Eagles to two national championships; of Georgia Tech's Jonathan Dwyer rushing for 1,395 yards and 14 touchdowns to lead the Yellow Jackets to an ACC title just last season.

Getting ready for alligator season in S.C.

Rick Austin of Columbia is a 27-year-old Citadel graduate who got one of the 1,200 or so licenses to hunt alligators in 2010. He captured his first alligator last year, a 91/2 -footer at Awendaw, using a cross bow. He said he makes Christmas gifts for his family and friends out the hides.  He defends the sport — and the reptiles.  ``Hunting is a great conservation method, without which the population would go unchecked,'' he said. ``We're not looking to decimate the alligators. We want them here for years to come.''

Citadel Bulldogs rushing into change

With new schemes on offense and defense and seven new coaches on staff, The Citadel’s Kevin Higgins essentially is starting over in his sixth season as the Bulldogs’ football coach.  Gone along with All-America receiver Andre Roberts is the balanced spread-option attack in favor of a run-oriented triple option. On defense, new coordinator Josh Conklin is charged with simplifying a 4-3 scheme that Higgins felt had the Bulldogs thinking too much and not hitting enough during last year’s 4-7 season.

Speaking out on tuition hikes (editorial)

To be fair, the College of Charleston wasn't the only state university to raise its tuition. But from a percentage standpoint, it was the highest. The Citadel also approved a double-digit increase of 13 percent. The exemplary rankings that both the College of Charleston and The Citadel received in the most recent U.S. News and World Report might be viewed as justification for ever higher tuition charges. After all, it could be argued, you get what you pay for.

The college could save money, and the items can be reused. Tell college kids to have their stuff on the curb by a certain date with the furniture and other usable items separated. Call one of the above agencies. They get usable stuff. The college saves money. Less landfill space is used.  Or possibly do what The Citadel does.Have a giant garage sale at the end of the college year.

The Citadel’s Sellars prepares to match all-conference honors

Alex Sellars knew what to expect before entering The Citadel.  Talking to alumni, he realized military training was just as vital as school.  Add in football, and that creates a busy, if not hectic, scholastic life.  Nonetheless, Sellars, who starred at Greenwood High School, is making everything work as he enters his senior season at tight end.  After making 16 catches, totaling 159 yards and six touchdowns last year, Sellars earned all-Southern Conference honors by the media (first team) and coaches (second team). A consensus second-team pick entering this season, Sellars once again has high expectations.

Jeff Perez, vice president for external affairs at The Citadel, said the state's military college raised tuition 13 percent for the coming year, but was able to hold down other costs for a total increase of 6.3 percent when room, board, clothing, haircuts and laundry are factored in. All cadets wear uniforms and must live on campus.  Perez said the best way for parents to cut their tuition costs is to make sure their students graduate in four years. The Citadel has the state's highest four-year graduation rate at 67 percent.

Board: SC colleges have highest tuition in South

The Southern Regional Education Board, which reported the figures, said part of the reason is because state lawmakers do not fund public colleges at the same level as the two neighboring states.  State funding at South Carolina colleges was about $4,800 a student in 2008-09. That compared with more than $11,500 per student in North Carolina and about $7,800 per student in Georgia.  "State appropriations will not increase dramatically in the next few years," education board spokesman Alan Richard said. "So we have to begin to produce more college degrees for less money."

In the early 1950s, Lee agitated with state officials to have the Brunswick Town site preserved at a time when it was threatened by encroachment from the adjoining Sunny Point military terminal then under construction.

State cuts push more college costs onto students

The trend of declining state support amounts to a "de facto privatization" of Virginia's public system of higher education, the council said.  After adjusting for inflation, state support for higher education has fallen by nearly half over the past decade and is now lower than in any of Virginia's neighboring states. Tuition and fees, meanwhile, have nearly doubled.  Among Virginia's 15 four-year state institutions, the total annual cost for in-state undergraduates next year will range from a low of $13,849 at Norfolk State University to a high of $20,872 at the College of William and Mary.

In an instant three of his brave companions were dead. He and his gunner were the only survivors.
