Chattanooga vs The Citadel Preview

Three things to know about The Citadel - The Bulldogs are one of just a handful of teams in the FBS or FCS to run the triple-option. The offense is preferred by military academies, which typically can’t recruit big, fast linemen and tall, strong-armed quarterbacks. The offense eliminates a lot of pass blocking responsibilities and allows teams to recruit smaller, quick, elusive quarterbacks who can make split-second decisions.

"You never know how things will pan out," said the 6-foot-1 Allen from the Citadel. "We prepare as if we're going to get in or start. It's the kind of approach I always take."  Allen had to square up against Indianapolis Pro Bowl receiver Reggie Wayne with Taylor on the bench. Then he stepped in at nickel back when Keenan Lewis limped off the field with cramps.

Citadel's twins Davis and Austin Boyle have made impact on Bulldogs

Sibling rivalry is one thing, but this is enough to drive a brother crazy.  Austin Boyle is a starting safety for The Citadel's football team and gets most of the snaps at the position. His backup has been his twin brother, Davis, also a redshirt junior.  But even though Austin is the starter, it's Davis who has come up with the big plays for the Bulldogs this season.

Citadel offense trying to escape no-passing zone

The only pass completed by The Citadel against Elon on Saturday was an end-over-end wobbler tossed by a running back, Rickey Anderson. Wide receiver Kevin Hardy could have called for a fair catch before settling under it in the end zone. 
Obviously, the Bulldogs will have to do better than that to break through for their first Southern Conference victory this week at 17th-ranked Chattanooga.

The Citadel's Secret Weapon

Now, I said all that to say this:  This week I attended a press conference at The Citadel where football coach Kevin Higgins recounted last week’s heartbreaking loss to Elon.  With him were two cadets who are not only good players, but good students as well. These are the real student-athletes.  But, of course, things are different at smaller schools like The Citadel. Instead of using expensive tutorial mechanisms to cheat the system, the Bulldogs turn to their tried-and-true secret weapon. It’s called The Honor Code.

Anniversary in Charleston (Part 3: Bowen’s Island )

My fascination with Bowen’s Island began when I was courted by several cadets from the Citadel during my last semester in high school. One of their tactics to lure me to S.C.’s military college was to take me and other recruits to the restaurant on Bowen’s Island. There, in the midst of “hooaahs,” flowing beer, and adoringly drunk girls, we carved our names in the benches along with thousands of others. It was a Citadel ritual that almost got me to the Holy City.

"Looking back to the Furman game, we can take away some good and bad. Our defense was able to keep them under 280 yards and we caused two turnovers. If you look at the game from an overall perspective, we led in time of possession, we won the turnover battle, and we won the total yardage. If you win those three statistics, typically you win the game. Obviously the most important statistic is the final score and we didn't win.

Midshipmen deserve respect (letter to the editor)

This is an open letter to USC football fans, of which I am one. I graduated from a small liberal arts college 42 years ago, so I may not be wired into all the nuances of being a USC fan. The practice of booing the opposing team when they take the field sometimes baffles me.  Let’s admit that there are occasionally opponents on the schedule who are in the sure-win category, and the USC fans know it. Why, then, do they insist on booing Ball State, Wofford, S.C. State, The Citadel, La.-Lafayette, etc.?

Sense of duty prevails in tragedy’s wake (By Lt Gen Rosa)

After the plane hit the Pentagon, we could not afford to be shocked. The security of the nation was in our hands.  On 9/11, I was an Air Force one-star general, assigned to Chairman of the Joint Chiefs Staff at the Pentagon. My job was to keep the chairman, Gen. H. Hugh Shelton, informed of worldwide U.S. military operations. Our nation’s key military information hub, the National Military Command Center, worked for me.

We're haunted by 1960s 'me first' mentality

When I chose to attend The Citadel on a NROTC-Marine Option scholarship, my friends thought I had gone crazy.  During those college summer months I was a lifeguard at Assateague State Park in Maryland. I would often spend my evenings fishing for sea trout or scuba diving for lobsters off the Lewes, Del., breakwaters while more than a few of my buddies would smoke the "weed" or experiment with what was then called hallucinogenic drugs.

The lingering impact is diffuse but real.

"It made travel more difficult. And it made commerce at the port more expensive with all the added security," he said.

Tennessee native finds adventure where the rubber meets the road ('96)

Collier, now a Marine Corps major and the current operations officer for 2nd Marine Division (Forward), grew up in the outdoors working on his grandfather’s farm and playing football, so it was natural for him to find a home in the Marine Corps when he enlisted in 1987. “A small-town kid growing up, I dreamed of getting out and seeing the world,” said Collier, a 1996 graduate of The Citadel. “The Marine Corps was an opportunity for me to do that. The recruiter asked what I wanted out of the Marine Corps, and adventure was what I was looking for.”

It's an hour before kickoff, and Cyril Samonte is dashing around the pressbox at The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium, a cellphone pressed to his ear. The scoreboard at The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium cost $1.4 million and is 426 square feet.
The problem of the moment — audio from the stadium's huge videoboard is bleeding into the radio broadcast.  It takes Samonte, video coordinator for The Citadel athletic department, a couple of minutes to resolve that issue, and then it's on to the next one, and then the one after that, for the next three hours.

From 1965 through 1992, the Paladins and Bulldogs generally met in mid to late November, culminating with a 20-14 Citadel victory on Nov. 21, 1992, that clinched a Southern Conference title for the Bulldogs.
