Citadel Notes: Goal-line fumble painful lesson for Isiaha Smith

Citadel fullback Isiaha Smith was rambling free, breaking loose from a tackler and heading toward the end zone.  A 54-yard touchdown would have been the highlight of the freshman's young career, and would have given his team an eight-point lead in the second quarter of Saturday's game at Western Carolina. But it all went bad in the blink of an eye.

A Few People Who Will Make You Smile

An email came across my desk last week that announces The Citadel’s new Dept. of Leadership Studies and M.S. Degree in Leadership. When I was coming through, The Citadel was not an option for most Black high school graduates, although a C.A. Brown grad, Charles Foster, was its first Black cadet.

I’m proud that Army Lt. Col. Santel H. Powell, a kid right off the Cooper Street block, is among the ranks of those who followed. Guys like Charleston dentist Larry Ferguson and White House staffer Clay Middleton also are among the unsung heroes from The Citadel.

Watermelons are tied to racial stereotypes that were prevalent after the Civil War that, according to Citadel history professor Marcus Cox, perpetuated the idea that African-Americans were simple-minded and inferior.

Jindal also is in Charleston for Mallory Factor’s semi-regular Charleston Meeting of politicos, business brass and media types.

•  Speaking of Factor, he plans on remaining chairman of the S.C. Legislative Audit Council despite flying back and forth over the Atlantic to England over the next year to teach at colleges, including the University of Cambridge.

Sapakoff: South Carolina's four-year scholarship guarantee ignites college sports shakeout

Guaranteeing four-year scholarships isn't even innovative. Some smaller schools already do it. The Citadel has guaranteed some athletic scholarships for four years since the NCAA began allowing the practice in August of 2012.  And a "guarantee" remains a matter of semantics. A four-year scholarship athlete, told playing time is less than guaranteed, can still "voluntarily" transfer.
