'She'll always be our little princess'

Brooke and her husband, former Citadel baseball standout Phil Hartig, had little reason to suspect that tiny Olivia was anything but perfectly healthy when she was born Sept. 4, 2008. She weighed a little less than her two older brothers when they were born, and her blood sugars were a bit off.  "Other than that, she was just a beautiful little baby," Phil said.

The memories are painful, particularly because her accused attacker is a man she considered a friend.  But the teen and her family also carry frustration and a sense of indignity about the way the college handled the assault.

Much is still unknown regarding the troubling accusations that Louis "Chip" ReVille engaged in sexual misconduct with young boys under his care. But one thing is crystal clear:  Schools have a moral responsibility to report sexual abuse complaints to law enforcement -- regardless of whether victims want them to. If the perpetrator isn't stopped, he can continue preying on others, a la Mr. ReVille after he left The Citadel.

With The Citadel being in the news lately and much of its press being unfavorable, it's an opportune time to examine that institution's purpose and practices as stated in its own words - to pick apart its paradigm and to determine what makes it unique.

Andre Roberts, Arizona, receiver -- It may have escaped notice, but the Cardinals are one of the hotter teams in the NFL, winning four of their past five games after a sluggish 1-6 start. That resurgence has been partly due to the increasing contributions made by Roberts, a 2010 third-round pick out of The Citadel. Roberts had just 24 catches for 307 yards as a rookie, when he was the team's primary punt returner, but he has comfortably topped both of those totals through 12 games this year, with 33 receptions for 419 yards.

The Citadel releases e-mails on sex case

CHARLESTON, S.C., Dec. 1 (UPI) -- E-mails released by The Citadel show the South Carolina school hoped to avoid a formal inquiry into allegations against accused molester Louis "Skip" ReVille.  The e-mails show the military school was aware of the school's exposure to a complaint about ReVille and that in-house attorney Mark Brandenburg was engaged in attempting to help the college avoid publicity and financial damages, The (Charleston) Post and Courier reported Thursday.
