High Profile: Marcus Cox ( associate dean of evening undergraduate studies)

After The Citadel hosted a big conference on the civil rights movement in South Carolina in the spring of 2003, by all accounts an extremely successful event, Marcus Cox made a risky proposition. Cox, then an assistant professor of history at the military college, approached his supervisors and told them he wanted to start an African-American Studies program. He had only been at the school for two years. He was not yet tenured. He had not proven himself. His colleagues thought he was nuts.

Will this be the final run for Citadel’s Ben and Aaron show?

Odds are, neither Ben Dupree nor Aaron Miller will make the all-Southern Conference team at quarterback this season. No matter how many games the Bulldogs win, starting Saturday with the season opener against Charleston Southern, neither quarterback is likely to get enough snaps to rack up all-league numbers.

Most decorated Citadel graduate of World War II is focus of new documentary

Retired Col. Ted Bell became The Citadel's most decorated World War II veteran for his valor in holding a rugged ridge on the Pacific island of Okinawa, but the deaths of so many of his men in his Easy Company of the 77th Infantry Division weighed on his mind as the decades passed. ``It was hard on him when he was by himself,'' his wife, Mary Hill Bell, said Wednesday at the premiere of an S.C. ETV documentary on the 93-year-old Bell.

1. Dupree has played in all 33 games since arriving on campus, starting the past 24 at quarterback.

Citadel to face mystery of Bucs

When Jamey Chadwell was hired as Charleston Southern’s new football coach last January, Citadel coach Kevin Higgins was busy trying to put together a recruiting class. “But in the back of your mind,” Higgins said, “you think, ‘I wonder what they are going to look like in that first game?’ ”  In the intervening months, Bulldogs coaches have put a lot of effort into trying to figure out what they will face Saturday, when Chadwell brings his first CSU team to The Citadel’s Johnson Hagood Stadium for the 2013 season opener.

Quotes of the day

Three candidates have already stepped up to take on Graham in the Palmetto State: state Sen. Lee Bright, social-conservative activist Richard Cash, and Nancy Mace, who was the first woman to graduate from the Citadel. She is considered the strongest of the trio, but thus far, few consider her a serious threat to Graham, despite his outspoken advocacy for immigration reform.

Big businessCollege football is a mini tourism season in S.C.

Carey also studied The Citadel, estimating that the school’s football program creates about 158 jobs statewide per year, 136 of which are in Charleston County, with an estimated net impact on state government revenues of about $764,000. While the numbers aren’t enough to threaten the coast as the top draw in the state’s $16.5 billion-a-year tourism industry, Carey, from Clemson, said college football essentially is its own form of tourist season.

College of Charleston, MUSC possible merger raises questions from the state’s Commission on Higher Education

The Citadel

Lt. Gen. John Rosa said the military college’s applications and enrollment continue to rise. More than 700 cadets enrolled in the freshman class that will arrive on campus this week.

He also said the school’s retention has improved, which means its facilities nearly are at capacity.

Rosa also said the largest challenge The Citadel faces is money. State support has dropped to between 8 and 9 percent of the school’s budget, he said. The level of funding will have a tremendously negative impact over time, he said. “If the picture looks like this 10 years from now, we’ll have some serious issues in higher education.”

Rosa that if more state money were to become available, he thinks it should be used to provide more scholarships, increase operating money to higher-education institutions and complete deferred campus maintenance projects.

McCladdie Primed For Big Season

Five years ago, Brandon McCladdie was part of a very special football season for the Evans Knights. The versatile McCladdie was a standout wide receiver and defensive back for an Evans team that went 10-1 and won a region championship.  The 6-1, 190-pound McCladdie spent the 2009 season as a redshirt. Then, in 2010, he began the season as a backup, but by the end of the year he was starting in the Bulldogs’ secondary. Now the former Evans standout is a leader for The Citadel defense. He has started all 22 games over the last two seasons.

Many of the cadets I teach in the Criminal Justice program at The Citadel see the sector as a career choice of second (or last) option, and favor more exciting career prospects in policing, intelligence or counterterrorism.

And then there is another card, one not many outsiders or Yankees would recognize. Nancy Mace is a graduate of THE CITADEL, the Military College of South Carolina. She is the first female graduate of this purely Southern institution! The alumni of THE CITADEL are known to be a close bunch, the Spartan experience they share is a bond second only to war. If THE CITADEL DOGS alumni look to regain their entrée to the United States Senate, which they had with former Senator Fritz Hollings, well a quiet but strong and statewide effort could quickly swell Mace’s treasury.

And THE CITADEL has twice been ranked the number one public college in the entire South by Newsweek, in 2012 and 2013. Not bad as a starter on Mace's resume.
