The Bulldogs ranked anywhere from third to ninth in major statistical categories in the nine-team league.

Don't have a cow, man: Coburg Dairy name changes to Borden; landmark cow will stay

Villeponteaux said he never climbed to the top of the cow, but knows people who have. Climbing the cow was a "tradition" that started with little kids, then high schoolers and then Citadel cadets.  Climbing on the cow resulted in a serious injury to a cadet in 1991, followed by a temporary removal of the cow by Coburg officials, who replaced it with a newer, stronger cow protected by a barrier.

Clearing up a Civil War point

The article said that it was fought between Union forces and Citadel cadets. According to the historical plaque in the Williamston City Park and a book written on the subject, it was not Citadel cadets. The cadets mentioned in the article were from the Arsenal Academy in Columbia, not The Citadel.  There were a few Citadel cadets in the unit that acted as a cadre, as they were upper classmen at The Citadel.  One soldier of the cadre was Ellison Smythe, who later established Pelzer Mills.
The Arsenal Academy and The Citadel were both part of the South Carolina Military Academy and the Arsenal Academy was on its way to Newberry to be disbanded.
