..Vincent Sheheen hopes higher turnout, Gov. Nikki Haley administration missteps helps in rematch

A Democratic candidate is “not going to win an election in South Carolina by playing to the furthest left coalition,” Huffmon said. “That coalition is simply not large enough.” The party’s hope may lie in S.C. newcomers, including conservatives who find themselves out of place in the state’s GOP, said Scott Buchanan, a Citadel political scientist.

Chants to face popular former assistant coach Drayton in season opener at The Citadel

It’s been more than two-and-a-half years since Maurice Drayton last worked as an assistant football coach for Coastal Carolina, but there are still Chanticleer players he talks with regularly, players he recruited who consider him veritable family. So imagine their surprise when he told them earlier this year that he had taken a new job as defensive coordinator at The Citadel, which just happens to be the first game on the Chants’ 2014 schedule.

Citadel position report: Defensive line will rotate like 'a hockey line'

Citadel defensive line coach Roy Tesh has been known to shuffle so many players in and out of football games that his substitution pattern is more like a shift change in hockey.  "Coach (Mike) Houston says I like to send in hockey lines," said Tesh, who coached for six years at Lenoir-Rhyne with Houston. "We're going to play a lot of bodies, rotate as many fresh guys in there as we can. There may be some situations where backups play as many snaps as the starters."

4.1 Citadel position report: It's (Aaron) Miller time at quarterback

The difference is subtle, but meaningful. In post-practice sprints, it's Aaron Miller who leads the backs and receivers, rep after rep. It's Miller who urges a lineman to step it up. It's Miller who claps a sideline visitor on the back.  It's Miller's turn to lead The Citadel football team as the starting quarterback, and by all accounts the senior from Clover is filling the role quite nicely.

Citadel position report: Wide receivers no longer 'on an island'

A job description for wide receiver at The Citadel might read like this:

"1. Block. 2. Block. 3. Block some more. 4. Catch an occasional pass. 5. Get back to blocking."

Needless to say, it takes a lot of patience to play receiver in the Bulldogs' triple-option offense. The Bulldogs three only 12.7 passes per game last season, and might not throw it that much this season under new coach Mike Houston. Citadel receivers have to take pride in much more than their pass-catching skills.

1.1 Experts: SC Gov. Haley is the favorite to win in November

Woodard, who taught Sheheen as an undergraduate, was more blunt about the senator’s chances: “Vincent Sheheen is a great candidate. He just has the wrong letter after his name. He’d be a superstar (in the GOP).” Another obstacle for Sheheen is the fact that South Carolinians tend to stick with candidates already in office, said Citadel political scientist Scott Buchanan, who joined Woodard in predicting a Haley win. “I don’t see them voting against the incumbent.”

2. Cash-strapped Democrat Hutto has web-only ad out in Senate race

Democrat Brad Hutto's campaign for U.S. Senate has released its first web video of the November race against Republican incumbent Lindsey Graham.  How deep the Internet-aimed ad will reach the electorate is debatable, a local political scientist said, given that TV remains the chosen medium of most well-heeled politicians.  Web-only video is "all about getting your message out as cheaply as possible," said Scott Buchanan, political scientist at The Citadel.

5. Citadel football preview: Tempo key for new-look Bulldogs

Ask Citadel football players what is different under new coach Mike Houston, and most of them come up with one word.  Speed.  It's not as if all the Bulldogs are now running a 4.3 in the 40, though that would be nice. Rather, it's the tempo at which things are done - especially in practice - that is markedly different.

Craig Miller has yet to carry the ball during a game for The Citadel's football team. But that hasn't stopped the sophomore from Holly Hill from rocketing up the Bulldogs' depth chart at slotback this fall. The reason: The 5-8, 185-pounder is ready, willing and able to block.

3_“The Citadel has a beautiful campus!”

If you have never visited a military college, the best two to tour is The Citadel and West Point. I prefer The Citadel because I graduated from there in 1971 and I still live in the Charleston Area. When you come through the entrance gate you will be greeted by a cadet on guard duty. As you travel into the campus you will be immediately greeted by the massive, green parade ground which fronts the Padgett Thomas Barracks across the way.

He’s too busy relishing the joy of becoming a college football player. Riley, a former standout player for both Colleton Prep and Colleton County High School, has made The Citadel’s football team as a walk-on transfer, penciled in already as the team’s second-string long snapping specialist entering his first season.

It has also been vandalized several times over the years, with the tail - it was once sawed off and welded back upside-down - being the most popular target. In 1990, the cow was damaged and a Citadel cadet was hurt while trying it. It was taken down for repairs and later returned during a dedication ceremony led by Citadel cadets. Barriers and a brightly lit sign have helped cut down on the vandalism in recent years.

4_Win some, lose some, pay some off

The Citadel, as of Wednesday, has a new athletic director in Jim Senter. One of his assignments will be booking "money" dates against major football powers.  Senter was on the other end of that financial formula last season as senior associate AD at the University of Colorado, which paid Charleston Southern $400,000 to take a 43-10 drubbing way out in Boulder.

The Military College of South Carolina announced Tuesday that on Nov. 14 it will induct Pat Conroy and Joe Riley as honorary members of the school's Athletic Hall of Fame. And though Riley (Class of 1964) was - and still is - too short to be much of a threat on the basketball court, he is a major baseball fan. He even has a ballpark named for him.

Allen would like to be the Steelers’ shutdown corner of the future, but Taylor, even after taking a Draconian salary cut, remains the shutdown corner of the present.

"What's weird about it is that you now have two widely different estimates for the mass of two really similar galaxies," said The Citadel physics professor Luke Sollitt. "If you were looking at both from afar they would look really similar - about the same size, the same structure, and so on. But the idea that Andromeda has a dark (matter) halo so massive as to make its total mass twice the Milky Way's suggests that in some ways, these two similar-looking objects may be really quite different."
