Recent presidents have enforced rules which mirror those governing other service academies.

Coach: Kevin Higgins (27-40 in six seasons at The Citadel, 83-65-1 in 13 seasons overall)

Returning starters: 18 (10 offense, 8 defense)

Key players returning: LB Tolu Akindele, QB Ben Dupree, FB Terrell Dallas, C Mike Sellers, DE Chris Billingslea

Outlook: The Bulldogs hope for major improvement in their second year in the triple-option, and history shows that can happen. With his 56-25-1 track record at Lehigh, Citadel fans hope Higgins is too good a coach to let the 10-23 slide of the last three years continue.

The Citadel (football outlook - scroll down)

The Citadel

Reason to believe: The Citadel, even with an inept offense, managed last year to finish third in the Southern Conference in total defense. Give head coach Kevin Higgins a chance and just a little more production and maybe the Bulldogs make more than gradual progress.

The problem is a schedule that's great for the marketing department but harsh for coaches.

Record: 4-7.

2-pronged approach by Perry

Scott Buchanan, associate professor and executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in Charleston, has noted that “every GOP nominee since 1980 has had to win the Palmetto State on the way to the nomination. 
“In many ways, South Carolina would be as absolutely vital for Perry in 2012 as it was for Fred Thompson in 2008. When Thompson was unable to win the state four years ago, he quickly ended his campaign. If Perry is unable to sway Republicans here, he would find it extraordinarily difficult to win other states,” Buchanan said

Citadel political science professor Scott Buchanan says it's a good political move to announce a presidential run here in South Carolina as opposed to his home state.  "He's putting a lot of effort on South Carolina because it will be the first southern primary. If Perry's going to win the nomination, he's really got to win South Carolina," Buchanan said. "It is a little bit unusual he would do so outside of his home state, but at the same time he is very popular in Texas and the thought he would not win Texas is incomprehensible."

Cadet Col. Matt Collier’s brother told him about The Citadel, but being related to a graduate did not make Collier’s matriculation or knob year any easier.  “My older brother explained The Citadel structure to me but he never really told me any stories. I think he wanted it to be a surprise for me, as it had been for him,” Collier said. “I remember making the mistake of not shaving the morning of matriculation. Several upperclassmen made it a point to tell me I should have shaved while my brother stood in the background watching me. I knew then I needed to learn from my mistakes and move on rather than let it get to me.”
