Why not pick someone fresh as opposed to someone who's day old?" ''Couldn't run the state' Some noted average voters aren't yet tracking the pre-2016 maneuvering. "I don't get a sense that S.C. voters are paying an enormous amount of attention to the presidential contest at this point," said Scott E. Buchanan, executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in South Carolina. "After the 2014 elections here, I think the focus will begin to ramp up for 2016."

7. Review - Oak Island resident writes new book about cadets at VMI

The way Lynn Seldon tells it, Pat Conroy turned to him in the Charleston restaurant Slightly North of Broad and said, "I think someone should write the VMI novel, and I think you should do it." Comparisons to "The Lords of Discipline," Conroy's notorious 1980 novel based on The Citadel, are inescapable. Seldon even cites it, repeatedly, in "Virginia's Ring."

During an 0-3 start - and the first three-game losing streak of his coaching career - Citadel coach Mike Houston kept preaching the same sermon to his Bulldogs.  "He kept telling us, 'It's gonna break, it's gonna break,'" said Citadel linebacker Tevin Floyd. "And he said, 'When it breaks, it's gonna break big.'"

7. VMI and The Citadel – A True Band of Brothers

I am a Citadel graduate, class of ’69 (I may look like class of 1869, but trust me, it’s 1969). You notice I use the present tense; no military school graduate ever saying he or she was a member of a particular class. VMI and The Citadel are the only remaining non-federal 24/7 military colleges in the USA. Having spent many years in the Air Force, I have the unsubstantiated opinion that the government school graduates (West Point, Air Force Academy, US Naval Academy) identify more with their military branch; the Citadel and VMI graduates more with their school and class.

"If it's dead-even or if she manages to win it, it's all over for him."  Any Sheheen win would have to be done by a convincing margin, Buchanan added, given the state's traditional majority GOP leanings elsewhere.

Like almost all of Big Bottom's other whiskeys – Pappas offers many limited-run editions and an exclusive "warehouse series" only available in an on-site tasting room – the Barlow Trail will be 91 proof. The number is a tribute to Pappas' class of 1991 at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

.New income report finds that most Americans saw no gains in 2013

The latest report on American incomes shows families were just treading water amid a tepid economic recovery, with both incomes and the number of people living in poverty little changed from 2012 to 2013.  "My sense is, it's been really disappointing that, while we've had this recovery in terms of gross domestic product numbers and things like that, it hasn't translated to real income gains nationally or in South Carolina," said Donald Sparks, economics professor at The Citadel.

..Prepare for the long haul, Iraq-Afghanistan veterans say

When Marine Corps veteran Andrew Kispert left the fight in Afghanistan for the last time in 2012 he was under no illusions that America's war with Islamic extremists was over. "It never crossed my mind that we were done - at all," said Kispert, 27, who is now enrolled as a day-student at The Citadel.

With President Obama scheduled to address the nation at 9 p.m. Wednesday to lay out his response to the Islamic State insurgency in Iraq and Syria, Kispert and two other veterans of the recent ground wars say their experiences forecast that the uprising is just a continuation of the radical mind set they previously fought against.

Florida State Seminoles prepare for The Citadel’s triple-option offense

Florida State will be heavily favored over FCS opponent The Citadel when the two meet Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium.

Huge underdogs to No. 1 Florida State, Citadel not able to pull plug on big-money games

Citadel football coach Mike Houston was blunt Tuesday when asked if he'd like to see more games like the Bulldogs' meeting with No. 1 Florida State on future schedules. "No," Houston said. "Not unless we have 85 scholarships." But unlike fellow FCS school Coastal Carolina - which is not playing a "money game" against an FBS school this season and has pulled out of future dates with FBS programs Clemson, Kent State and Georgia Southern - The Citadel is not in position to pull the plug on guarantee games.

..Found! Can you help reunite this Marine's ring with its owner

A News 2 viewer found a Marine's ring out in her Summerville neighborhood on Koger Drive when she went to go check her mail. The viewer wants to remain anonymous and hoped that its rightful owner would claim it after watching our story. 

"Well, right here we have Tun Tavern that symbolizes the founding of the Marine Corps. That's where the first marines were enlisted into the Marine Core in 1775, said Second Lieut. Marine Reserve Edward Zur. "On the reverse side we've got the memorial of the Iwo Jima battle and you've got 1945 on the base there," said Zur who works in the admissions office at the Citadel.
