If you do the math, The Citadel’s football team has lost five games by a total of 22 points this season. A calculator reveals the average margin of those five losses is 4.4 points, or somewhere between a field goal and a touchdown. But a calculator can’t reveal the depth of frustration felt by Citadel players, which might have reached a season-high after last week’s 28-24 loss at Chattanooga.

REVIEW: 'The Death of Santini,' by Pat Conroy

That scene from Pat Conroy’s novel “The Great Santini” — about a crusty Marine pilot incapable of showing love to the tortured son who, despite all evidence, still manages to love him — illustrates the redemptive power of Conroy’s new memoir, “The Death of Santini.” Because he wrote about it, what almost killed Conroy made him stronger. His insights, tragically come by, meticulously examined and generously shared, are gut-wrenchingly human.

Citadel’s Bice: 2-5 Bulldogs still have something to play for

Citadel offensive tackle Devin Bice has heard the talk, not uncommon around football teams that have won only two of their first seven games. The coaches should devote the rest of the season to getting younger players ready for next year, people say. With goals of competing for a Southern Conference championship and FCS playoff bid out the window, the final five games of the 2013 season should be about the future.

Get the chills in Charleston: Here's the low-down on Lowcountry ghost tales (book review)

This is a building that goes back to 1829; it served various military purposes before opening in 1843 as the South Carolina Military College - the Citadel. There were probably suicides and hazings of new cadets who weren't liked. When The Citadel moved in 1992, the old building was restored and renovated as the Embassy Suites. The hotel staff has had so many ghostly experiences.

Sanford weighs fallout for GOP (not web accessible)

U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford said the GOP’s deep divisions won’t heal until the 2016 presidential election, and he said this month’s shutdown created a set of winners and losers among Republican hopefuls in that race. “I think (Sen.) Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was relatively quiet in this, and I think it accrued to his benefit,” he said.

“Within Washington, I think Rand Paul was a winner to, let’s say, relative to (Sen.) Ted Cruz (R-Texas), but time will tell,” he said.

“Arguably, some of the people outside Washington, the governors, gained relative to people in Washington. All these things ke pretty good 30-second ads: ‘You guys can’t lead.’ ”

Sanford appeared Friday before The Citadel’s Republican Club, where Cadet Ryan Rhodes told Sanford the biggest takeaway from the past few weeks’ shutdown saga was how divided the GOP is.

Sanford said he does not think those divisions will be remedied until the 2016 presidential election. “We’re not at the point of remedy,” he said.

Sanford recently joined all of his GOP House colleagues from South Carolina in opposing the Senate proposal that raised the national debt limit and reopened government, and U.S. Sen. Tim Scott also voted no.

Sen. Lindsey Graham was South Carolina’s only Republican to vote for it, but Sanford declined to say if that vote will hurt Graham’s re-election prospects next year.

“You’re not pulling me into that one,” Sanford said. “Everybody takes their own vote with their own justifications.”

Sanford also served in Congress during the previous government shutdown in the mid-1990s. He said his experience from both events shows how presidents have the upper hand in these standoffs, partly because the president has a single message compared with the thoughts of 435 representatives in the House.

Sanford said this shutdown differed from the previous version. For instance, the staffs of President Bill Clinton and House Speaker Newt Gingrich continued talking throughout the crisis back then.

“This time, the talks completely broke down” between President Barack Obama and Speaker John Boehner, he said, adding that last time, “The politics were not as hardball.”

One sign of the hardball politics was the White House’s decision to close open-air memorials such as the World War II and Lincoln memorials. “All the open-air memorials stayed open last time,” Sanford said.

Early in this month’s shutdown, Sanford took to the House floor to criticize Obama for shutting down the memorials. Sanford said he often runs past them at night when no one is there, and he called the decision to barricade them “a picture of political gamesmanship and hostage-taking.”

Sanford said the political fallout from the recent shutdown will depend largely on what happens next. The deal keeps the federal government open until Jan. 15 and raises the debt limit until Feb. 7.

“If you go to Government Shutdown II — which I don’t think you’ll see — but if you were to and Debt Ceiling Debate II, III and IV, I think there would be significantly greater levels of political impact than a one-off event,” he said.

Asked if he felt any impact to his own popularity, he said, “Time will tell.”

“I think what you try and do is represent the best you can the majority perspective of where folks are coming from,” he added, “and I think the majority of folks are still very much concerned about us continuing to kick the can down the road on debt ceiling without doing something about the drivers as to why the debt ceiling is increasing.”

    Citadel’s P.J. Horgan forced to give up basketball with bad back

    The back problems that plagued Citadel basketball player P.J. Horgan last season have forced him to give up the game, coach Chuck Driesell said Tuesday. Horgan, a 6-8 junior from Rio Rancho, N.M., averaged 10.7 points and 6.3 rebounds while playing in 19 games last season. With the departure of all-Southern Conference center Mike Groselle, Horgan would have been the Bulldogs’ top inside scoring threat this season.

    But Horgan practiced for the final time last Friday, Driesell said.

    “P.J. gave it a shot,” Driesell said. “He woke up the next morning after practice last Friday and the pain and discomfort was such that he couldn’t get through the year. He went through it last year and tried to get it fixed over the summer, and we feel like he gave it plenty of time.”

    Horgan will remain at The Citadel to finish his degree in engineering.

    The Bulldogs, 8-22 last year, also could be looking at playing without junior forward C.J. Bray for at least part of the season. Bray, a 6-7 redshirt sophomore from James Island, is suffering from nerve damage in his arm.

    “C.J. is day to day,” Driesell said of Bray, who redshirted last season and had surgery on his ankle. “He is training with us and running, and it’s not his ankle that is stopping him from playing. It’s the nerve damage in his arm. There’s a little progress every day, but they can’t give us a date when he might be ready.”

    With Horgan out and Bray questionable, freshmen Tom Koopman (6-8), Brian White (6-6) and Nate Bowswer (6-9) will be counted on inside, Driesell said.

    “We were counting on those guys,” Driesell said of Horgan and Bray. “This is the junior year for both, and they were going to be ready. But Koopman has done a tremendous job showing maturity and a level of play we have confidence in, and Brian White has stepped in and can play some power forward and center.”

    The Bulldogs open the season Nov. 8 against VMI in the All-Military Class in Lexington, Va.

The magazine cited Bulldog Tours’ forays into a dungeon, into old cemeteries and through a haunted jail. For chilling, the article says the 10th floor at the Francis Marion Hotel is a good place to stay — if you’re brave. Or it suggests the Embassy Suites (the Old Citadel) where “the souls of former cadets and officers are rumored to lurk.”

Pulling herself up from a rocky high school experience, she became the first woman to graduate from The Citadel’s Corps of Cadets in 1999, with magna cum laude honors, by digging in, a tactic she’ll bring with her to the Senate if elected, she said.

    The Citadel

    Thomas Warren, a former Bishop England star now playing for The Citadel, was named the Southern Conference special teams player of the week after kicking a game-winning field goal against Appalachian State two weeks ago.

    Bay Amrhein, also with Bishop England roots, plays defensive end for The Citadel. Amrhein earned a starting job last year. He recorded 32 tackles after starting all 11 games.

    Charles Clark redshirted last year at The Citadel after winning a state championship with Bishop England a season earlier. He’s listed as a wide receiver on the Bulldogs’ roster.

    Alex Glover, a former Wando standout, is breaking through the rotation at The Citadel after playing sparingly as a true freshman and then gradually increasing his role his sophomore season. Now, as a junior, Glover is listed as the starting tight end and provides strength in blocking.

In the box was a ring — his Citadel ring. “I wanted so badly to rip it open, to put that ring on my finger and run to my mom and give her the biggest hug in the world,” said Oxendine, a senior from Sumter. “It was just an overflow of emotions, thinking of all the people — my mother, my father, my brother — who helped me get to that point.”

    Notebook: Georgia Southern, App struggling in transition year

     When it comes to Georgia Southern and Appalachian State, the story is similar.  Neither team is having the season they were hoping for during their respective farewell tours in the Southern Conference.  Both teams are near the bottom of the SoCon standings, and for the Mountaineers (1-4, 1-1 SoCon), whose losses to North Carolina A&T, Charleston Southern and in overtime at The Citadel all came by a three-point margin, it’s been frustrating to say the least.

Saturday, a matchup of two of the most disappointing teams in the Southern Conference.
