1. Citadel football's Crochet is not an average Joe
Ah, the life of a Citadel football player. Bulldogs defensive end Joe Crochet sleeps in until about 9:30 a.m. on a typical morning in his Mount Pleasant apartment. He runs some errands, grabs something to eat and heads to campus for practice. Two nights a week, he takes classes at The Citadel. Saturdays, of course, are reserved for football games. "My teammates remind me every day how nice I have it," says Crochet, a 6-2, 245-pound redshirt junior from Stone Mountain, Ga. "It's nice to be able to experience Charleston as sort of a normal college student." Make no mistake, though. Crochet put in his time as a knob and in the barracks, rising early, going to classes and eating in the mess hall with his classmates. Crochet earned his Citadel degree in just three years, graduating last May with a degree in business administration. He's playing this season and will play next as a graduate student, and is on track to have his MBA by the time he's done playing football. That's what taking 20 hours per semester and six hours every summer will do for you.

2. Dr. Richard Ebeling featured on "Rethinking the Dollar"
Dr. Richard Ebeling is featured on the webinar show, "Rethinking the Dollar," to discuss his new book, "Monetary Central Planning and the State." He discusses the relationship between government central planning in general and the nature and the inherent problems with monetary central planning as one example of a form of central planning. In this case, the lack of a competitive market process to determine: (a) what is it that market participants would find most useful to use as a medium of exchange; (b) what the value, or purchasing power, of money should be, given people's demands to hold and use money in relation to its market-determined supply; and (c) what interest rates should be in terms of people's savings in comparison to borrowers wishing to use saved funds for market-oriented investments and other activities.

3. Five local men fought with 'Red Arrow Division' in WWII's New Guinea campaign
A newly released book by Joe Camp honors 32 Army Reserve officers from South Carolina, including five area men, who ended up serving along with Michigan and Wisconsin National Guard companies in the U.S. 32nd Infantry Division in New Guinea during World War II. The division was nicknamed the "Red Arrow Division" because it pierced every line it faced. Camp will speak about his book, "32 Answered: A South Carolina Veterans' Story," at 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 1, at the Orangeburg County Historical Society. He said he stumbled onto the amazing story by accident while interviewing a 90-year-old Michigan veteran. The elderly man showed him a picture of himself in the war with a Clemson graduate. "I said, 'Bill, how in the world did a South Carolina guy and a Clemson guy get into a Michigan and Wisconsin Guard Unit?'" Camp said. The elderly veteran told him, "We had a lot of those Clemson guys. They were all good officers and true Southern gentlemen." "I said, 'Wow! These are veterans from South Carolina in a unit which was geographically not part of this area that fought in the Pacific, and nobody remembers it. Nobody's ever talked about it.'" The New Guinea campaign was important for being "first" in a number of areas, including the first campaign where the United States moved aggressively against the Japanese. South Carolina officers were involved and nobody has written about it, Camp said. He went to work on what he thought would be a short story about a few Clemson graduates, but the story soon turned into a book, he said. "I started digging around. Then I found out from The Citadel and Wofford and Presbyterian College... that they had graduates in the unit," Camp said.

4. College of Charleston Senior celebrates 5th year of Adopt a Classroom
Adopt a Classroom is scheduled for Dec. 10, 11, and 14 this year at 5 local Title 1 schools: Mitchell Elementary, Sanders-Clyde Elementary, Cainhoy Elementary, Burns Elementary, and Charleston Progressive Elementary. Sponsorships are through gift giving or financial donations ($200). To adopt a classroom through gift giving, sponsors sign up at www.charlestonhope.com and are emailed the school, grade level, teacher, and number of boys and girls in the sponsored class; sponsors are asked to provide the correct number of boy and girls toys. Sponsors who donate financially can donate online or by mailing their donation; the Charleston Hope team purchases the gifts on behalf of the donor for their sponsored classroom. Adopt A Classroom was originally started in 2011 as an outreach by Emily Hoisington as a high school senior. She was burdened by the stories that she heard from her sister, a teacher at a local Title 1 school: Charleston Progressive Academy, of some students who did not experience the joy of opening Christmas presents. This inspired her to start Adopt A Classroom. She and her high school classmates adopted two classrooms that year (40 students). They gathered the presents, wrapped them and threw a Christmas party for the students which included a hot meal that was provided by a local restaurant. A year later, Emily was discouraged as a freshman at the College of Charleston about continuing Adopt A Classroom. However, God kept laying it on her heart to continue this work. She began emailing different organizations in the community such as the College of Charleston, Charleston Southern University, The Citadel and other businesses in the area. Soon Adopt A Classroom had enough support to adopt two schools, Charleston Progressive Academy and Burns Elementary. That year over 900 Title 1 students received a Christmas present, a hot meal, dessert, and spent the day with loving volunteers. Emily hosted a wrapping with the Well of SeaCoast Church, a college and twenties ministry, where over 100 students and community members gathered together and wrapped over 700 presents.

6. A Lady's Work is Never Done
"And all our yesterdays have lighted fools, The way to dusty death." - Shakespeare, Macbeth The lust for power is not new to humanity in the 20th/21st century. It certainly is not new in the history of politics. Every great civilization's arts and literature deal with this universal theme of corruption among the powerful. Not everyone can be a Cincinnatus or a George Washington. Every civilization has its Darth Vader or Macbeth - or Lady Macbeth, if the pump shoe fits. I continue to be stunned by how many Americans do not see the corruption surrounding the handling of the attack of the consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the subsequent cover up. Admitting that our government failed our people abroad in service to our country may be painful for some Americans, but Ambassador Chris Stevens and his security team at the Libyan consulate were our people, and we did not make the slightest effort to help them. I refer to "we", because we elect our political leaders. We have that privilege, and when we do not hold them accountable, we make ourselves irrelevant. Written by Paige Lewis, an adjunct history professor and freelance writer in Charleston, S.C. She graduated Queens College in Charlotte, N.C. with a B.A. in history and drama, with a minor in political science. She earned her master's degree in American history from the University of Charleston and The Citadel joint graduate studies program.

4. Public colleges add more economic value to graduates' lives than Ivy League, a US ranking reveals
The economic value added to students' lives by attending specific US colleges has been calculated for a non-profit organization's university ranking system. Educate to Career (ETC), a non-profit that provides data resources relating to education and career outcomes, used a variety of metrics to measure the improvement in earnings and employability of graduates against the total cost of their education. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill came out on top of the 2015 rankings. The top 10 otherwise features two Californian universities, two institutions in Virginia, and other universities spread across the country. The score for "economic value added" takes into account the average salaries of recent graduates, the proportion of graduates employed within one year of graduation, the proportion of graduates employed in a field related to their studies and other qualities that measure educational and economic success. #5 The Citadel Military College of South Carolina 95.6 Charleston, SC

8. Citadel's win streak started when turnovers stopped
The Citadel trailed Western Carolina by 10-7 in the third quarter of its Southern Conference opener this season. The Bulldogs had second and goal at the WCU 1-yard line when quarterback Dominique Allen tried to pitch the football to slotback Vinny Miller. The ball skittered across the grass at Johnson Hagood Stadium, one of four Citadel fumbles in that game. Fortunately for the Bulldogs, receiver Jorian Jordan hopped on the ball in the end zone, the touchdown giving The Citadel a 14-10 lead. The Bulldogs would go on to win by 28-10, the first of four straight SoCon victories. Not all fumbles have such a happy ending, as The Citadel discovered the next two weeks in non-conference losses to Georgia Southern and Charleston Southern. The Bulldogs fumbled 10 times in those two games, losing half of them while getting pummelled 48-13 by GSU and 33-20 by CSU. Something has changed since then, however. During its current three-game win streak, The Citadel has fumbled only once in wins over Wofford, Samford and Furman.

After the celebration, guests will be invited to attend a reception at the college's Mark Clark Hall, which is next to the chapel. Sweet tea will be served in keeping with Burger's book, Baptized in Sweet Tea: A Collection of Ken Burger's Columns Celebrating the South. He grew up in the small-town of Allendale, South Carolina, where he claimed many times to have been "baptized in sweet tea" himself. The book was released in November of 2011, shortly after he retired as a newspaper journalist. In keeping with Mr. Burger's wishes, Baptized in Sweet Tea will be sold in The Citadel bookstore following the service and going forward. Proceeds from the sales will benefit a newly named Ken Burger Scholarship to be managed by The Citadel Brigadier Foundation. The foundation provides assistance to approximately 225 cadet-student-athletes at The Citadel annually.

5. Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel
Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel-On Oct. 26, 1985, when Citadel linebacker Marc Buoniconti tackled East Tennessee State's Herman Jacobs, both their lives changed forever. The collision left Buoniconti, son of former Miami Dolphins great Nick Buoniconti, paralyzed from the neck down, and Jacobs, an NFL prospect, was emotionally crippled. But the encounter led to the unlikeliest of friendships and inspired personal achievements neither man could have imagined. Buoniconti teamed with his father to start The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, the world's largest and most comprehensive spinal research facility. Jacobs, after spiraling into a deep depression, pursued his lifelong dream of becoming a chef. Five years after her first REAL SPORTS report, correspondent Mary Carillo reconnects with both men, and learns of the deep bond that grew out of tragedy.

One yard, one crumb of a yard was all that was at stake in the opening moments of a football game on an autumn Saturday. Running back Herman Jacobs of East Tennessee State wanted to obtain it. Linebacker Marc Buoniconti of The Citadel wanted to stop him. Two players with little in common except their passion for football intersected. Buoniconti's neck was dislocated. Jacob's heart was broken. Both were paralyzed by their violent collision, although the toll took different forms. Buoniconti left the stadium in an ambulance and a doctor confirmed what Buoniconti knew as he lay numb on the field after the tackle: He was a quadriplegic. Jacobs finished the game and the season, but something disconnected inside him. Buoniconti was confined to a wheelchair, walking only in his dreams. Jacobs was shackled by guilt, sleepwalking through life.

2a. "Thanks Joe!" Charleston celebrates Mayor Riley's service
Charleston said farewell and thank you to Mayor Joe Riley in the form of a Sunday celebration. Hundreds came to Brittle Bank park to honor Riley's 40 years as Mayor. Charlestonians and even folks from around the Lowcountry made the trip to the Peninsula to sign a yearbook for Riley and take photos with him. "He's done a lot for the city of Charleston," said Rudy Maxwell who drove from Hollywood. "The event was supposed to be held two weeks ago, but the historic rains and flooding that followed postponed it. "Nothing can be fitting for a mayor that's been 40 years in the making, but this has been a fun day and a small gesture to what he's owed," said organizer Rebecca Gosnell in front of ferris wheel full. Others at the event talked on what Riley will be known for. "He's leaving a legacy that we can build on," said Norvel Goff, the pastor of Emanuel AME Church. "I like to call him the nation's mayor because he sets an example for how we should come together and how we should work together to make our communities a better place to live." "Mayor is the best job in public service in America," said Mayor Joe Riley with a small crowd waiting to thank him, "and being the mayor of Charleston is the best job anywhere."

2b. Mayor Joe Riley's heart warmed by 'Thanks Joe!' celebration
Joe Riley has spent 40 years supporting the city of Charleston, so it seemed only fitting that so many people turned out Sunday to support him. "I'm just so proud," he said at the free event, "Thanks Joe!" "It's very heartwarming and this is certainly something I won't forget." Organizers said thousands were at Brittlebank Park and later The Joe to celebrate the mayor's historic tenure and partake in family festivities that included entertainment from the Blue Dogs and Friends, the Emanuel AME Church choir and Edwin McCain. Even Bill Murray showed up to support the longtime mayor. Riley immediately appeared in his element, shaking hands and talking one-on-one to people as they walked up to say hello and thank him for his years of service. He was dressed down in a teal polo and khakis but was rarely seen without a smile. As for what's next for Riley, he said he'll be teaching at The Citadel and the College of Charleston, maybe doing some consulting and wants to write a memoir about his time spent as mayor. "I know the title. I know how to start and how to end," he said of the book. "But there's a lot between here and there."

3a. 'Rocky Top' at the Tattoo
It's estimated that perhaps 400 million people worldwide tuned in this past August to see the music, pageantry, and demonstrations at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in Scotland. That means people from all over the world heard Commander Mike Alverson ('95) lead the Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes in a rousing rendition of "Rocky Top." "It's a pure and unabashed shout-out to my alma mater," says Alverson, who graduated from UT with a bachelor's degree in music education. "It's a published arrangement, but it's very, very close to the one UT plays." Broadcast by the BBC from Edinburgh Castle to thirty countries, the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo is the largest annual international military music performance in the world. The Citadel (South Carolina) was the first military college ever invited to the Edinburgh tattoo in 1991, and it is the only one to have been invited back in 2010 and again this year. For Alverson, the worldwide telecast of the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo will be a fitting tribute as he winds up an illustrious musical career. The son of an Etowah, Tennessee, pharmacist, Alverson came to UT to study pharmacy and eventually take over his father's store, but he found his true passion in music-as president of the UT Singers and as a trombonist under W J Julian in the Pride of the Southland Band.

3c. For Citadel coach Donnell Boucher, tragedy a test of strength
Strength is Donnell Boucher's business. For the past seven years, Boucher has been in charge of the strength and conditioning of athletes at The Citadel, rising from graduate assistant coach to assistant athletic director while developing a reputation as one of the best in the business. "He's fantastic, and The Citadel is fortunate to have him," Citadel football coach Mike Houston said. "He's one of the best young strength coaches I've seen, and if he wanted to market himself, I'm sure he could be at a bigger school. But he loves it here at The Citadel." Over the past week, that love has been returned as Boucher has found his own strength severely tested. A fast-moving fire destroyed the Boucher family home in Chicopee, Mass., on Sunday, killing Boucher's grandmother and an uncle. Another uncle, a cousin and Boucher's mother escaped the fire, but the house was destroyed, leaving the survivors without a home and the Bouchers without the center of their family life.

4a. Great National Purposes Means Less Freedom
With the seventieth anniversary this year of the end of the Second World War, a number of commentators have focused on the presumed "unity" of America seven decades ago to "win the war" against global tyranny and international aggression by Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan. Individuals put aside their individual personal and petty interests to support and fight for a "greater collective cause." The contrast is made between "then" and "now." Today, it is said, America is divided against itself on domestic policy issues, international and foreign affairs, racial antagonisms, and cultural conflicts, to just name a few. What America needs, it is said, is a shared set of common values and goals that can provide a unifying sense of public purposes. This is the path back to a restored American greatness at home and abroad, proponents say. Such a view is often heard among both modern liberals on "the left" and conservatives on "the right." They may differ on the values to be shared and the public policy purposes people are to unify behind, but the emphasis on a higher collective calling is common to both. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4b. The Fiscal and Ethical Stranglehold of the Welfare State
The welfare state threatens to fiscally weaken and morally undermine the United States. In the Federal government's fiscal year that ended on September 30, 2015, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid expenditures, alone, made up over 48 percent of all of Uncle Sam's spending. And it will only get worse. According to the Congressional Budget Office, in fiscal year 2015, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid expenditures equaled around $1.8 trillion out of the Federal governments total spending of nearly $3.7 trillion. This compares to $563 billion on defense-related spending and $260 billion in interest payments on the Federal government's accumulated debt. For the fiscal year that has recently ended, the Federal budget deficit was $435 billion. This means, for example, that for Uncle Sam's budget to have been in balance in fiscal 2015 either the defense budget would have had to be almost zero, or "entitlement" spending on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid could have been reduced by 25 percent compared to the actual level of spending. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

5a. St. James High School's JROTC instructor brings home national honor
It was a big day for Col. Stephen Cellucci, JROTC instructor at St. James High School in Myrtle Beach. Surrounded by more than 1,000 students in St. James' gymnasium Friday, Cellucci was awarded the Outstanding Civilian Service Award, which is the third-highest honor within the Department of the Army Civilian Awards ranks. "I'm just humbled," Cellucci said. At the end of his brief speech Friday, he needed a long, loud cheer from the crowd to express his gratitude to his JROTC students, past and present. "And to have it done in front of all the students, you just can't ask for anything better," Cellucci said. Cellucci beat out more than 4,000 other instructors this year for the award. His motivation to diversify St. James' program and teach leadership skills to about 400 students yearly was what set him out from the other candidates, said Col. Matthew Ingram, with the 4th Brigade ROTC United States Army Cadet Command. Cellucci grew up impoverished with six siblings, but wanted to find a way to attend college. He spent about $160 in college admission fees - to the chagrin of his father - and was finally offered a four-year Army scholarship. His first choice was West Point but, as an "alternative" on the list, he had to attend The Citadel in Charleston. He reapplied to West Point while at The Citadel - and was accepted - but by then he'd fallen in love with the southern sun. "I loved the south so much," Cellucci said. "That's why I'm here now."

6. Southern Finds: Stylish products from around the South
Few women will go for skin-care products with the names like Spit Shine, Snakeskin and Grit Happens. And that's just fine for James Rupley, the creator of Tennessee-based Otter Creek. The company: Otter Creek, founded in Nashville in 2011, designs and formulates a line of skin-care products for outdoorsmen. The founder: Rupley is a graduate of The Citadel (the Military College of South Carolina) and Tulane University Law School. He practiced corporate finance law in New York before moving back to Nashville to be legal counsel for Therapy Systems Inc., a cosmetic retail company. As a man working for a company that, generally speaking, caters primarily to women, he wanted to create products, such as body cleaners, shampoos and moisturizers designed specifically for men that wouldn't need to say "for men" on the label. Claim to fame: the company partnered with Realtree to put it camouflage patterns on some of the products. The camo patterns were designed by Georgia-based Jordan Outdoor Enterprises in Columbus.

7a. Runners hit pavement for a cause in James Island Connector Run
Saturday morning's James Island Connector Run brings hundreds of runners and enthusiasts together to raise money for scholarships. The race began at 8:30 a.m. Packet pickup began at 6 a.m. at Cannon Park. Road closures scheduled for Saturday morning could impact even those who aren't getting out to take part in the annual event. Charleston Police closed roads along the route beginning at approximately 8:10 a.m. The route's starting line will be at Bennett and Ashley Streets. Runners will take Bennett to Barre, Barre to Calhoun and Calhoun to the Connector. The runners will then loop around the concrete barrier at the James Island side of the Connector and return along the same route. The 5K run ends at the turn-around point and the runners load busses to return to the park. Police expect the roadways to reopen by 10 a.m., according to Charleston Police spokesman Charles Francis. A Post-Race Party is being held at Cannon Park, complete with beer, food and a live band. The run has provided college scholarships to 115 students since 1999 through The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation, a local charity awarding annual scholarships to students with physical disabilities. The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation Scholarship is also awarded to students at Charleston Southern University, The Citadel, Trident Technical College, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and the Art Institute of Charleston.

7b. Life-changing football tackle led to 'best friends' Buoniconti and Jacobs
One yard, one crumb of a yard was all that was at stake in the opening minutes of a football game on an autumn Saturday. Running back Herman Jacobs of East Tennessee State wanted to obtain it. Linebacker Marc Buoniconti of The Citadel wanted to stop him. Two players with little in common except their passion for football intersected. Buoniconti's neck was dislocated. Jacob's heart was broken. Both were paralyzed by their violent collision, although the toll took different forms. Buoniconti left the stadium in an ambulance and a doctor confirmed what Buoniconti knew as he lay numb on the field after the tackle: He was a quadriplegic. Jacobs finished the game and the season, but something disconnected inside him. Buoniconti was confined to a wheelchair, walking only in his dreams. Jacobs was shackled by guilt, sleepwalking through life. Thirty years later, Buoniconti and Jacobs recall the third-down play from Oct. 26, 1985, in crystalline detail. Ultimately, it made them best friends. "The quarterback pitched me the ball," Jacobs said. "I could see Marc coming. First I got hit low by another player and flipped through the air. Then Marc hit me in my lower back. It was the hardest hit I've ever taken." Buoniconti fought off one block, sprinted toward the somersaulting Jacobs and dove helmet-first into the 20 on Jacob's jersey. "Next thing I knew, bam!" Buoniconti said. "My body rolled over and my arm flopped to my side and I thought, 'Whose arm is that? Oh, that's my arm. OK, I am hurt bad. I am paralyzed. Don't panic. Don't freak out.'" Buoniconti feels pride to this day that he stopped Jacobs for no gain. The Citadel won the game. The two remain avid football fans. They talked a lot about college, pro and high school football Friday during lunch in Coconut Grove, after greeting each other with a gentle head butt.

Cam Jackson ran for 78 yards and two touchdowns and Vinny Miller added 70 more yards rushing to help lead The Citadel past Furman 38-17 on Saturday. Dominique Allen threw for 67 yards and ran for 35 more with two scores for the Bulldogs (5-2, 4-0 Southern Conference), who rushed for 388 total yards on 63 carries. After Furman struck first on a 20-yard TD pass from Reese Hannon to Chad Scott, The Citadel peeled off 24 straight points to take a 24-7 lead at the half. The Paladins (3-4, 1-2) battled back in the third, cutting the lead to 24-17 after a Jon Croft Hollingsworth 20-yard field goal. But that was as close as Furman got, as an Allen 1-yard scoring run late in the quarter put the game out of reach. Hannon threw for 71 yards a score for Furman. Ernie Cain added 54 yards on the ground.

As eight busloads of knobs cheered wildly from the stands late Saturday afternoon, Citadel defenders Dondray Copeland and Austin Harrell executed perfect backflips on the sideline. Yes, Citadel football is fun again. Freshman cadets bused in from Charleston made Furman's homecoming feel like a Citadel home game, and the Bulldogs maintained course for a shot at a Southern Conference championship with a 38-17 rout of the rival Paladins before 12,124 fans at Paladin Stadium Dominique Allen and Cam Jackson each scored two touchdowns as The Citadel dominated early and pulled away late to improve to 5-2 overall and 4-0 in the SoCon, its best start in league play since 1979. "I believe that we will win!" the cadets chanted as linebackers Tevin Floyd and James Riley sealed the victory with interceptions in the final five minutes. Citadel coach Mike Houston and equipment manager Kevin Yeager were soaked by celebratory Gatorade showers, and school president Lt. Gen. John Rosa greeted Houston with a hug outside the locker room.

8c. Citadel goes back to the future at Furman
The 1992 season remains the touchstone for Citadel football, the year the Bulldogs were ranked No. 1 in the nation in Division I-AA, and the year they last won the Southern Conference championship and made the playoffs. That season, which included wins at Arkansas and Army, reached its peak in the final game of the regular season when The Citadel went to rival Furman and clinched the SoCon title with a 20-14 victory over the Paladins. The Bulldogs' game at Paladin Stadium on Saturday might be the most significant - at least from a Citadel perspective - in the series since that 1992 meeting. The Citadel enters the game with a 4-2 overall record, a 3-0 SoCon mark and only three teams - Furman, Mercer and VMI, a combined 1-6 in league play - between it and a potential showdown with defending champ Chattanooga for the SoCon title. The only Citadel game at Furman that comes close in recent years was in 2012, when the Bulldogs went to Greenville with an outside shot at an at-large bid to the FCS playoffs. That team won by 42-20 to finish at 7-4 overall and 5-3 in the SoCon, but was shut out of the playoffs.

8d. Magwood, Rider have vital roles against The Citadel
Two years ago, Furman linebacker Carl Rider led the Southern Conference in tackles. Last year, Furman linebacker Cory Magwood led the Southern Conference in tackles. This year, neither one may end up on top, but it won't be from lack of effort. "It's been a fun competition between us," Magwood said. "We push each other and talk trash to each other about who's going to get the most tackles." Rider racked up 136 tackles in 2013 while Magwood was banged up off and on all year. Injuries forced Rider off the field for all but three plays in 2014, when Magwood recorded 123 tackles. Every part of Furman's defense will be tested when rival The Citadel visits Greenville for homecoming at Paladin Stadium. The Bulldogs (4-2, 3-0 SoCon) and Paladins (3-3, 1-1) are scheduled to kickoff for the 95th time Saturday at 1:30 p.m. Furman's linebackers will especially play a vital role in trying to contain the Bulldogs' triple-option attack. Citadel averages 345 yards rushing a game, which ranks second in all of the FCS. They've ran for an FCS-best 24 touchdowns and lead the SoCon in scoring at 35.5 points per game. Fowler said there's nothing unusual about what the Bulldogs do in the triple option. Their success comes from simply in how they run it.

8f. Coach search playbook: Outside firms, agents, consultants all part of complex process ahead for South Carolina
Les Robinson knew the voice. He knew the name. He just didn't understand why Clemson athletic director Bobby Robinson was calling him in the winter of 1989. The East Tennessee State coach was widely viewed as the heir apparent to Jim Valvano for the men's basketball job at North Carolina State, so much so that a satellite truck from Raleigh's WRAL television had parked itself right outside his house in Johnson City. So when Clemson's AD called, Les Robinson figured it was to inquire whether he would be interested in the Tigers' job - which Cliff Ellis still held at the time. Not quite. "Les," Clemson's Robinson said, "I'm calling you on behalf of N.C. State to check your interest level in the job." Even now, the former coach at N.C. State, East Tennessee and The Citadel sounds amazed at the memory. "I thought somebody was trying to trick me," Robinson recalled. N.C. State used Clemson's AD as an intermediary, to resolve a delicate situation that involved the Wolfpack having an interim athletic director and ETSU's president being out of the country. The move was a forerunner of what would develop as standard procedure in coaching searches to come.

8g. White's journey back home a gift for Kennesaw State
Trey White was bred to be an option quarterback. Throughout his middle and high school years at St. Pius X Catholic in Atlanta, White learned how to run the offense under Paul Standard, and the Golden Lions were wildly successful. So, understandably, the colleges for White to choose from that ran the option offense were limited. He eventually decided on The Citadel, which ran the Wing-T and a spread option. White redshirted his freshman season and as he entered his redshirt-freshman season, "things just weren't working out." So began the journey of him returning home. His quarterbacks coach at The Citadel, Cody Worley, took the same position at Kennesaw State, an upstart program north of Atlanta. That allowed White to finally look at Kennesaw and he liked what he saw.

9. Bulldogs Fall to SoCon Foe
The Citadel women's soccer team fell to Furman on Friday afternoon 4-1 at W.L.I. Field. The Bulldogs (1-17, 0-8) jumped out to a 1-0 lead 19 minutes into the game after Emilie Valenciano found the left side of the goal for her first score of the season. Valenciano registered both shots in the game for The Citadel. The lead would last for 11 minutes before Carlie Couch found the back of the net at the 30-minute mark for her first of three goals in the contest. The Paladins (13-4-1, 5-1-1) outshot the Bulldogs 14-2 in the first half. The score would remain 1-1 coming out of the half until Furman found the net at the 63rd minute and then quickly scored again in the 65th minute to give the Paladins the 3-1 lead. Couch's third goal of the day would come in the 76th minute and that ended all scoring, with the Bulldogs falling 4-1.

1. Charleston Strong mural to honor Charleston Church shooting victims
Come downtown on Friday and Paint Strong for Charleston Strong. The Citadel invites you to leave your mark on the Charleston Strong mural. The Rutledge wall now serves as a memorial in honor of the Emanuel AME victims. There are light blue, navy and red doves painted on both sides of the wall that were painted on Wednesday. That day, cadets from the Citadel released nine doves into the air in memory of the nine victims killed in the shooting. This also kicked off the three day painting event. Some people have left their initials, their age or their own little flair next to their dove. All ages are welcome to come paint a dove. You do not have to be an expert or an artist. You do not even need your own supplies. This wall used to surround the old Citadel baseball field. Now, it will stand as a memory of the Emanuel AME victims and as a symbol of a city united.

2. Citadel cadets deliver strength, hope and leadership
They prepared sacks of oyster shells to bolster reefs and coached elementary school children who are learning to read. They tended a garden growing sustainable food for the hungry and packed boxes of food for South Carolina flood relief at Lowcountry Food Bank. On this one day alone, Leadership Day 2015, the entire South Carolina Corps of Cadets was solely dedicated to service learning and ethics education. The annual event is one part of a cadet's four years of required leadership development - but it is a favorite for cadets, their professors, and for the community agencies they serve. More than 8,000 hours of service to the Lowcountry is provided by the cadets each Leadership Day; many to community partners where cadets volunteer also volunteer year round. One of the most visible activities was the kick off of a new Charleston Strong mural. Cadets assisted people who came from around the city in painting their own doves on the almost 300 ft. long wall along Rutledge Ave. The project, which was conceived of and managed by The Citadel Director of Fine Arts, was designed to be a symbol of hope for the city to which everyone could contribute.

4. Manhunt underway for gunman who shot money carrier outside Altamonte Springs Publix
What started as a routine trip to the grocery store turned chaotic for more than two dozen shoppers at a Publix in Altamonte Springs on Thursday afternoon. Shortly after 3 p.m., Ethan Lusted and two friends were walking into the store when gunfire erupted. "We heard two gunshots, and then one guy was walking away," Lusted said. An armed guard from a Loomis bank truck was hit at least once in the head, said Altamonte Springs police Lt. Robert Pelton. Though the victim was conscious and alert when taken by an ambulance to Orlando Regional Medical Center, his condition began to worsen Thursday night, said Pelton. The man, who was not identified, was listed in critical condition. Lusted and his friends, all 2011 graduates of The Citadel and visiting Central Florida for a wedding, rendered first aid to the man. "There was a lot of blood," said Lusted, 29, of Georgia. Witnesses said the gunman fired three or four shots in the entrance of the store. The shooting suspect, who got away with an unknown amount of cash, jumped into a gold Nissan Maxima driven by an accomplice, police said.

6. Layton hired to media relations staff
The Citadel has hired R.J. Layton as Associate Director of Media Relations, it was announced Thursday. Layton joins The Citadel following more than two years in the athletic strategic communications office at Missouri. He will be the primary media contact for men's basketball, women's golf and volleyball. Most recently, Layton was the primary contact for wrestling and men's tennis and secondary contact for men's basketball at Missouri. His responsibilities included managing the teams' social media accounts and developing campaigns to engage the Tigers' fan base. He also designed graphics, media guides and newsletters and coordinated national and local media requests. In his first two seasons at Missouri, Layton worked directly with Missouri's nationally ranked softball and swimming and diving teams. Layton, a West Lafayette, Indiana, native, coordinated all social media, fan interaction and media requests as the softball team hosted an NCAA Regional and advanced to the NCAA Super Regional at UCLA in 2015. He also assisted with publicity for other sports on campus, including writing feature stories for game programs and serving as the on-field media liaison for football. In addition to his experiences on campus, Layton also volunteered at SEC Football Media Days and the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament.

7. Mike Clevinger was dominant, and is a starting rotation option for the Cleveland Indians
Mike Clevinger's route to the Cleveland Indians was a pretty circuitous one. The Jacksonville, FL native attended The Citadel as a freshman and then transferred to the Seminole State College for his sophomore season in 2011. That is when the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim used their fourth round pick on him. He only made three appearances for Orem of the Pioneer League (Rookie) that year. In 2012, he made just eight appearances on the year before succumbing to Tommy John surgery. But those limited appearances (and the depletion of the Angels minor league system) enabled him to open as the #4 prospect in their system in 2013. He returned late in the year to make three appearances. He opened 2014 with the Burlington Bees (A) in Iowa before moving quickly to the Inland Empire 66ers (A+) of the California League. The Indians likely noticed him after five shutout innings against Lake County before the A+ promotion. Because of after just 27 games in just over three seasons, the Tribe landed him as the return for Vinnie Pestano when they were clearing a 40-man roster spot at the trade deadline.

8. Hickory Grove's Alec Parsons overcomes gruesome injury to return to game he loves
When Hickory Grove's Alec Parsons plays high school football each Friday, he must wear a brace that helps him raise his foot when he runs. An injury last year that ended his sophomore season left him with a severely mangled knee, a torn nerve in his lower leg -- and left him facing grueling rehabilitation. But Parsons, a 17-year-old junior offensive linemen, never doubted he would return to the sport. "I love football," he said. "I always loved football. Everybody in my family played football." Parsons' older brother Colin (6-foot-3, 260 pounds) was part of back-to-back state championship teams at Butler High in 2009 and 2010. Colin played in college at The Citadel. Their father Kevin was a 6-3, 240-pound starting linebacker at Nebraska in the 1980s, playing for legendary coach Tom Osborne. At 5-10 and 205 pounds, Alec doesn't have the size of his father or brother, but he shares their love of what Hickory Grove assistant coach Jared Sanders calls "old-school, hard-nosed football."

9. Basketball: The Citadel picked 9th in SoCon by coaches, media
The Citadel has been picked to finish 9th in preseason Southern Conference men's basketball standings by both the conference coaches and the media the league announced on Thursday. Chattanooga was picked as the preseason favorite in both polls while Wofford was picked to finish 2nd. The Bulldogs are entering their 1st season with new head coach Duggar Baucom who came to the Bulldogs from VMI. The team will also have a much different look as only four players who had any significant time are returning from last years squad that went 11-19. Gone from last year are the top 3 scorers. Ashton Moore and PJ Horgan each graduated while Jake Wright chose to transfer. So the teams top returning scorer and rebounder is junior Brian White who averaged 7.1 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per game. Senior Quinton Marshall and juniors Warren Sledge and Tom Koopman are the other returning players who started at least a game last season. The Citadel will play their lone exhibition on November 6th when they host Erksine and begin the regular season on November 14th in Indianapolis against Butler in a game that will be televised on Fox Sports 2.

1a. Citadel cadets, community come together to paint Charleston Strong mural on Rutledge Avenue
If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a mural in downtown Charleston will leave people speechless. Volunteers started the process on Wednesday of building a Charleston Strong mural on Rutledge Avenue. Thanks to some brushes, several gallons of paint, and the spirit of community that has brought Charleston together through tragedy and adversity, there is now another piece of art on display in a very prominent place. Gallon by gallon, and stroke by stroke, it;s one more sign that Charleston is healing. Charleston Mayor Joe Riley described it as "a reminder of courage, strength, healing." Doves, a symbol of peace and hope, were transformed into a symbol to honor the nine people killed during the shooting at Emanuel AME Church on June 17. What started as a T-shirt design and car sticker is now 12 feet high and nearly 300 feet long on a white brick wall on Rutledge Avenue in the Wagener Terrace neighborhood. It's not a landmark for the city of Charleston, a brilliant idea says Riley. "In this darkest hour of heartbreak, Charleston created one of its finest moments," he said. For neighbors and parents alike, it's an opportunity to create new memories. "This is somewhere we walk past almost every day. So, I wanted them to be able to walk by and say, 'There's the bird I painted,'" said Anna Bradley, one of the dozens of people who painted doves on the wall Wednesday. State Rep. Wendell Gilliard said the image of the wall and the thought of many residents gathering to create the painting will stick with him forever.

3. Will date change for James Island Connector Run catch regulars off guard?
It's hard to believe that Halloween is nearly upon us. If fall seems to be moving along fast for you, consider that many local runners will think it even more so because of a date change for one of the season's staple races. Since 2003, the James Island Connector Run has been held on the first Saturday in November. The date sticks in my mind more than most because the race is usually held the same weekend of the New York City Marathon (first Sunday in November). But this year, the 17th annual event, featuring a 10K, 5K and bike ride, will be held at 8:30 a.m. Saturday, two weeks earlier than usual. Race Director Nick Gavalas says the change was due to the city of Charleston, which asked the race to find another date because The Citadel homecoming and a Veteran's Day Parade also fall on Nov. 7. "October 24 was the next best choice," says Gavalas, who is not sure whether the date will change permanently.

4. The Citadel's Delaney Added To National Player Of The Year Watch List
The Citadel defensive back Dee Delaney has been added to the STATS FCS National Defensive Player of the Year Watch List, it was announced Wednesday. Delaney is tied for the FCS lead with five interceptions this season, a total that already has him tied for sixth on The Citadel's single-season list. He leads the Southern Conference and is second in FCS with an average of 2.0 passes defended per game, and his eight passes defended in conference play are double the next-closest total. Delaney is tied for eighth on The Citadel's single-season passes defended list with 12 and is tied for ninth on the Bulldogs' career interceptions list with seven. Delaney was named Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after recording a career-high 10 tackles, one interception, two pass breakups, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery he returned 25 yards for a touchdown in The Citadel's 44-25 win at Samford. All three turnovers came at important points in the game. His fumble return put the finishing touches on a 28-point second quarter that gave the Bulldogs a 35-14 halftime lead. His interception ended Samford's first drive of the second half and led to another touchdown, and his forced fumble came on the first play after Samford recovered an onside kick down 41-25 with 12:17 left in the fourth quarter. The Citadel football team travels to Furman on Saturday for a 1:30 p.m. kickoff. The game can be seen on ESPN3 and via the WatchESPN app.

Jamie Cunningham, a sophomore on The Citadel cross country team, has been named Southern Conference Student-Athlete of the Week, it was announced Wednesday. Cunningham is from Alpharetta, Georgia, and is currently majoring in engineering in which he holds a 4.0 GPA. He recently finished seventh out of 64 runners at the College of Charleston Classic held at the Winthrop University Farm Course in Rock Hill, South Carolina, on Oct. 16. Cunningham crossed the finish line at the 26:54.4 mark, recording his fastest time of the year thus far in the 8k distance. He was the second-fastest Bulldog in the race, finishing just one minute behind the leader. Cunningham has finished in the top 10 among Division I competitors in four of the five races this year. This is the first award for Cunningham in his collegiate career. The Bulldogs will return to action on Oct. 31st in Greenville, South Carolina, for the Southern Conference Championships. The men's race will begin at 10 a.m. and the women's race will follow at 10:45 a.m.

6. Furman to host Citadel team on a roll
With games against FCS No. 1-ranked Coastal Carolina, FBS members Virginia Tech and Central Florida, and a road trip to No. 5 Chattanooga, the first half of Furman's football schedule was considered the "tough" portion. But coming off a bye week that followed a blowout loss to one of two teams undefeated in Southern Conference play in Chattanooga, the Paladins (3-3, 1-1) open the season's second half with the other team that's yet to lose a SoCon game. The Citadel (4-2, 3-0) and Furman meet for the 95th time at 1:30 p.m. Saturday on Homecoming at Paladin Stadium. The Bulldogs come in off a 44-25 win at Samford last Saturday. With similar blowout wins over Western Carolina and Wofford, Citadel might be the hottest team in the SoCon. "They're doing an outstanding job and they seem to be playing with a tremendous amount of confidence," Furman coach Bruce Fowler said. "They're scoring a ton of points, but they're also playing very solid on defense."

1. The Citadel's Leadership Day 2015 includes 1,200 cadets volunteering across Lowcountry
All year long cadets and students from The Citadel learn to lead by serving others; volunteering is an important part of their four year leadership development. But on one particular day each October called Leadership Day, the entire South Carolina Corps of Cadets is solely dedicated to service learning and ethics education. Every cadet participates, whether it is through hands-on volunteerism, job shadowing business leaders, or attending ethics training from a global organization. Leadership Day 2015 will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 21. As the sun comes up, more than 1,200 cadets and students will head out to more than 50 locations which will include many public schools. They will help lead STEM and literacy classroom activities, clean up parks, prepare food for people still suffering from recent floods, and attend seminars offered by the Institute for Global Ethics, along with dozens of other undertakings. New this year is Paint Strong for Charleston Strong - a community mural project honoring the nine members of the Emanuel AME Church killed by a gunman in June, and the city's unified response to the tragedy. School groups and members of the community will participate in painting hundreds of doves on the college's wall along Rutledge Ave.

College of Charleston seniors Angel Mathis and Elena Swink share a special bond. The two are among 115 students since 1999 to receive college scholarships through The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation, a local charity awarding annual scholarships to students with physical disabilities. Both were also born deaf. "It's not just financial support," Angel Mathis said. "It's also the ability or the opportunity to make friendships with people who understand where you're coming from, and want to be there for you." The two met at a foundation banquet two years ago and have remained close friends. Each year, the James Island Connector Run serves as the foundation's largest fundraiser, with proceeds reaching over $700,000 in its 17-year history. 'Medical costs have always been in my life," Mathis added. "Having a foundation that understands that, and wants to help you as you further yourself academically means a lot to me." The Gavalas Kolanko Foundation Scholarship is also awarded to students at Charleston Southern University, The Citadel, Trident Technical College, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and the Art Institute of Charleston.

"Tonight it was great to be in front of an awesome crowd and get the win," head coach Craig Mosqueda said. "After a slow start, we played with more urgency and got the win." The Bulldogs (7-17, 0-7 SoCon) fell in the first set before claiming the next three, 25-11, 25-18, 25-18, to solidify their second win over the Tigers this season. The Citadel out-blocked Savannah State 12-6, and recorded a match-high attack percentage of .375 in the second set. Sophomore Moriah Smith recorded a match-high 18 kills in the outing, along with eight digs, two solo blocks and two block assists. Senior Bailey Kernodle earned a double-double on the evening with 13 digs and 10 kills. Fellow senior Rachel Keefer provided a match-high 51 assists in the outing as well as seven digs.

6. Furman-Citadel To Renew SoCon's Oldest Football Rivalry Saturday At Paladin Stadium
Furman and The Citadel will renew the Southern Conference's oldest and most-contested football series this Saturday when the arch-rivals square off in a 1:30 p.m. clash at Paladin Stadium, highlighting Homecoming at Furman University. The contest will mark the 95th meeting between the Paladins (3-3, 1-1 SoCon) and Bulldogs (4-2, 3-0 SoCon) since the Palmetto state schools first met in 1913. Furman and The Citadel have played every year since 1919, except for a three-year hiatus (1943-45) during World War II, and have battled as SoCon foes since 1936. The Paladins lead the all-time series 58-33-3, with the 58 wins marking the most against any Furman foe in the program's 110-year history. Furman sports a 33-13 record versus The Citadel in Greenville and is 12-4 against the Bulldogs in Paladin Stadium. The Citadel, however, won the last meeting in Greenville, taking a 42-20 decision in 2012, and claimed last year's clash in Charleston, 42-35, in overtime. The Paladins notched their last win over the Bulldogs in 2013 with a 24-17 verdict in Charleston. Saturday's clash, which will be carried by ESPN3, will be radio broadcast over the Furman IMG Sports Network headed up by flagship station WGOG 101.7/Walhalla and FoxSports 1440/Greenville. It will also be available via stadium transmitter (96.7 FM) and audio streamed via TuneIn.com, which is also accessible through FurmanPaladins.com

7. Furman week should help Citadel remain focused
Contrary to popular belief, a healthy disdain for Furman football does not come naturally to Citadel players. It is a learned behavior. "You definitely get that from the alumni," said Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen, who will lead the Bulldogs into their 95th meeting with Furman on Saturday, renewing the oldest rivalry in the Southern Conference. "They all talk about how they don't like Furman, and Furman doesn't like us," Allen said. "You hear the phrase, 'Purple makes me puke' a lot this time of year, so you understand that this is a really big ball game for them." For Citadel coach Mike Houston, a bit of rivalry talk might come in handy this week. His second Bulldog team is making some history, off to a 3-0 start in the SoCon for the first time since 1992. That year, of course, is the last time The Citadel claimed a league title, rising to No. 1 in the nation in FCS (then Division I-AA). And the current Bulldogs might have some more history in front of it. Wins over Furman, Mercer and VMI - teams with a combined 1-6 record in the league thus far - could set up a SoCon showdown with defending champ and fifth-ranked Chattanooga on Nov. 14. That's why some rivalry buzz this week will serve Citadel coaches well as the Bulldogs come off a 44-25 win at Samford last week.

8. Ken Burger, former Post and Courier columnist, author and cancer fighter, has died
A man was diagnosed with prostate cancer about six years ago, and underwent robotic surgery at the Roper St. Francis Cancer Center. One day, a familiar face appeared in the doorway of his hospital room. "It was Ken Burger," said the patient, Joe Thompson. "And when he walked in the room, I knew I was not in this alone." Thompson is among the many whose lives were impacted by Burger, a journalist and novelist who gained national fame as a Post and Courier sports columnist and turned his prostate cancer into an awareness campaign. Burger died Tuesday night in Mount Pleasant. He was two days shy of his 66th birthday. “His devotion to his fellow patients was extraordinary," said Scott Broome, service line director for oncology at Roper St. Francis. "Ken was a charismatic person, and had a way of being honest with people, but also encouraging. I know he has helped people choose to get checked, or at least be made aware of the risk factors of prostate cancer." Thompson, a 1968 graduate of The Citadel who lives on Johns Island, was one of those patients. "He has made a tremendous impact in bringing prostate cancer to the forefront," said Thompson. "If anybody tells you they don't know who Ken Burger is, they haven't lived in Charleston very long. Everybody knew him and knew his passion for this, and that made you pay more attention when he talked about prostate cancer. He made a tremendous positive impact."

1. Public invited to paint doves on 'Charleston Strong' wall
The phrase 'Charleston Strong' was born out of the forgiveness that families showed in the aftermath of the Emanuel nine shootings. Its image, a palm tree and nine doves, graces the College Park Rutledge wall near Grove St. You are invited to paint your very own dove Wednesday to show your support for the community. "Our city has been through so much lately; tragedies, disasters. This is our way to bring the community together and not only remember what we've been through, but also unify and look forward to what comes ahead," said Tiffany Silverman, director of Fine Arts at The Citadel. You can paint your own dove from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Mayor Joe Riley and Senator Marlon Kimpson will be the very first to pick up those paint brushes. In case you can't make it out Wednesday, The Citadel will continue painting doves Friday and once again on Sunday.

6. Dick LeBeau Remembers Intercepting Steve Spurrier as a Player
South Carolina plays at home against Vanderbilt (2-3, 0-2) on Saturday. He won't even be in town, appearing instead on ESPN GameDay from Ann Arbor, Mich. "You all know it. You love to be around him and it's sad to see him go". "I wouldn't be surprised if Coach Spurrier ends up coaching somewhere again", he said. South Carolina had never won more than 10 games in a season before his arrival in 2005, but by 2010 he had the Gamecocks in the SEC title game and then from 2011-13 he posted three consecutive 11-2 records. Gamecocks quarterback Perry Orth hit Pharoh Cooper as he came across the field and the junior outran the defense for the 78-yard touchdown. Athletic director Ray Tanner said after meeting with several assistants and team captains, Elliott became the best choice to lead the troubled program forward. "There is something special about this place". From having loud music at practice to playing in their black uniforms that were rarely seen during the Spurrier era to having AC/DC playing over the speakers during third down, the changes were just part of Elliott's plan to energize the team. "We know what kind of guy coach Elliott is". He brought hope, excitement and fun to the game in Columbia - something no other coach did in my lifetime. South Carolina then visits Tennessee before finishing the regular season with three straight home games against Florida, The Citadel and Clemson. Vanderbilt's defense has been impressive, holding all five opponents below their season average for scoring and total yards, and is especially stingy against the run. South Carolina ended up with a plus-3 turnover margin, and its nine points off of turnovers was the margin in the game. (Co-coordinators) Jon Hoke, Lorenzo Ward and that staff, they played one heck of a game. "We're just out here to get better and beat Vandy". "I felt as comfortable going into the game as I have all year".

1. Commercialisation and the future of space travel
Space is no longer just for governments. In just a few decades, it has gone from a tool of the Cold War to a field where private companies are blossoming and new applications are developed with fierce pace. In the past 15 years we've seen the first space tourist blast off, witnessed the rise of cult space corporation SpaceX and heard the plans of a wealth of different companies, from would-be asteroid miners to space habitat construction companies. We may not have let Earth yet ourselves, but private endeavours have - rather ironically - given us a collective sense of ownership of space perhaps not felt since the 70s. This is certainly true for the Atsa Suborbital Observatory, a human-operated telescope developed at South Carolina military university The Citadel, attached to the roof of a Lynx Mark II spacecraft owned and operated by commercial space company XCOR. Scheduled for launch next year, it will enable researchers to look at parts of space close to the Sun that cannot be fully observed from Earth but are too dangerous to observe using equipment such as Hubble due to the risk of burning out the $20bn cameras. "What the commercial suborbital industry is doing is taking what has been previously a reasonably expensive proposition - about a million or two dollars to get a telescope into space - and they've brought our costs way down so now we're talking about more like $100,000 a flight rather than a million," says Dr Luke Sollitt, assistant professor of Physics at The Citadel, who is in charge of the Atsa project. "So now you no longer have to have a massive lab behind you to build your instrument, integrate it and so forth, you can now do it with a much smaller team, you can do it with students, you can do it at even small undergraduate institutions."

2. Community invited to help paint "Charleston Strong" mural on Rutledge Avenue
The image of nine doves in the shape of a palmetto tree that became the symbol of "Charleston Strong" in the wake of the Emanuel AME shooting this summer will soon be the centerpiece of a public mural in the upper peninsula. The fine arts department at the Citadel has partnered with Gil Shuler, the creator of that image, to install it next week on the College Park Rutledge Wall near Grove Street, which is the large concrete wall outside the old Citadel baseball stadium. Citadel Cadets will paint the words "Charleston Strong" across the 12-foot tall wall as a part of the military college's annual Leadership Day. Starting Wednesday morning, the community will be invited to paint their own doves in the blocks surrounding the mural. Mayor Joe Riley and state Sen. Marlon Kimpson will stencil in the first doves at a public ceremony at 10:30 a.m. The public painting session continues until 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, as well as from 9 a.m.-noon Friday and 1-4 p.m. Sunday.

3. Charleston mayoral candidates debate port and cruise ship industry
Candidates vying to be the next mayor of Charleston faced off again tonight in front of members of the Propeller Club of Charleston. The candidates discussed their stance and vision for the city's port and improving transportation, amongst other topics. On Wednesday, the candidates took the stage at the College of Charleston. On Thursday, it was at The Citadel's Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Propeller Club is the largest membership organization on the Charleston waterfront and represents all of the state's maritime shipping interests. On Thursday, attendees heard about transportation, offshore drilling, and ways the candidates plan to control the cruise ship industry. Robert New, moderator of the forum and President of Charleston Port Services, said, "The controversy over the cruise industry is forefront." Should the city have some cruise control? Or should the ships sail full steam ahead? Business woman Ginny Deerin said she is concerned about potential growing pains with the cruise ships. However, Deerin explained, "I am excited about the Union Pier development."

4a. New Webinar on Dr. Ebeling's book, "Monetary Central Planning and the State"
Dr. Richard Ebeling appeared as a guest on Liberty.me's "Scotch and Scholars" webinar on October 15,2015, hosted by Mike Reid, to discuss his new eBook, "Monetary Central Planning and the State." As part of the discussion, Ebeling explained the ideology and psychology that was underlying John Maynard Keynes's "worldview" in developing the ideas that became the basis of Keynesian Economics nearly 80 years ago, and how they still are implicitly part of the assumptions behind much of Keynesian and Macroeconomic thinking today. Ebeling also outlined the purpose and significance behind writing "Monetary Central Planning and the State," in terms of his attempt to demonstrate the inherent and inescapable political dangers and economic impossibilities in any and all forms of central banking in comparison to the possibilities and potentials of private, competitive free banking.

5. Citadel QB Dominique Allen growing into his job
When Citadel quarterback Dominique Allen looks around the huddle, he typically sees four seniors and four juniors surrounding him. For a sophomore like Allen, it's not always easy to raise his voice at his elders - especially at a military school, where seniority has its rank. But after the first five starts of his college football career, Allen is getting used to the idea. "As we've gotten deeper into the season, I realize I need to take on more of that leadership role," said Allen, who played the best game of his young career in last week's 39-12 win over Wofford. "Earlier in the season, I was sort of letting the older guys handle it. I let some of those senior offensive linemen take care of it, but now I'm trying to step up more in that role." More performances like the one he turned in against Wofford will only deepen the trust the Bulldogs have in Allen, a 6-1, 214-pounder from Richmond Hill, Ga. He ran 10 times for 72 yards and two touchdowns, and hit 7 of 10 passes for 125 yards and another score as the Bulldogs improved to 3-2 overall and 2-0 in the Southern Conference.

6. The Citadel heads to Western Carolina
The Citadel volleyball team remains on the road as they travel to Cullowhee, North Carolina, to take on Western Carolina at 6 p.m. on Friday inside the Ramsey Center. In their last outing, the Bulldogs (6-16, 0-6 SoCon) dropped the match to UNCG in three sets (21-25,17-25, 20-25), but managed to out-block the Spartans seven to four. Sophomore setter Logan Smith earned a double-double for the blue and white, posting 18 assists and 10 digs. Sophomore Moriah Smith led The Citadel in kills with seven and also provided 13 digs. The outside hitter is third in the Southern Conference in kills, averaging 3.57 per set. Senior Bailey Kernodle followed with six kills and 11 digs.

7. The Citadel continues road swing
The Citadel women's soccer team continues its four-game road swing this weekend when it travels to VMI and UNC Greensboro for the last two away SoCon matches of the regular season. The Bulldogs rank first in the SoCon in saves with 128 this season with Abby Koger recording 68. The freshman is averaging 6.80 per game.

The Keydets are led by Sydnie Bligh who has 13 points and five goals in 2015. The Citadel and VMI are currently .500 in their all-time series after splitting the two matchups last year; the Bulldogs are 2-1 when playing at VMI. The Keydets lone win in the conference was against Chattanooga. They currently rank third in the SoCon in goals with 26 and are averaging 1.73 per game.

9. Mocs trying to stay unbeaten in Southern play at VMI
It's not surprising that No. 6 Chattanooga is atop the Southern Conference standings at 2-0 following its 31-3 pasting of Furman last weekend. The surprise, however, is that The Citadel is the only other team at 2-0 in conference play heading into its clash at Samford on Saturday. The Citadel, which is 3-2 overall, started fast with home victories over Davidson and Western Carolina by a combined 97-10 score. They were quickly brought back to earth after absorbing a 48-13 pounding at Georgia Southern on Sept. 19, and the hangover continued the following week in a 33-20 defeat to Charleston Southern. But The Citadel got its running legs back in a 39-12 rout of Wofford, churning up 271 rushing yards with its triple-option offense to beat the Terriers - whom they held to 118 on the ground - at their own game and end a 16-game losing streak in the series. The Citadel enters this game at a crossroads of sorts, looking to establish some road bona fides while asserting itself as the threat to the co-leading Mocs that Samford (3-2, 1-1) was expected to be according to the preseason coaches poll.

2. Dayton grows mentoring program
Miles Tidd is now a solid, focused senior at Belmont High School who holds down a job and has an eye on attending The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina. But he says he wasn't always that way. Tidd said having a mentor, Quinn Howard, for the past five years has helped to shape his life. Dayton officials said Wednesday they're trying to build on that type of example, via the My Brother's Keeper program, a White House initiative to support disadvantaged kids, especially children of color. "For a while, when I was not being very responsible and not being a very good kid, Quinn stood by my side. He supported me, was there to talk to me," Tidd said. "I was raised by a single mother, never had a father figure, so having someone there to say, hey, you shouldn't talk to your mother like this, or you shouldn't act like this - it's not what a grown man does. That really helped me grow and mature." Local and national officials came together Wednesday to evaluate and advance Dayton's Men of Color program, an arm of My Brother's Keeper. City Commissioner Jeff Mims, chairman of the Men of Color group, said they have involvement from churches, ex-offenders groups, the United Way and Dayton Public Schools, among others.

3. Living with MS, ex-coach Diggs still "blessed"
For one coach, it's the same playbook; but for a much different situation. Former college football coach Ricky Diggs, of Harrisburg, is now living with multiple sclerosis, though the disease hasn't smothered his competitive spirit. "That's how I live my life," said Diggs. "Looking at the positive aspect of things -- that's a big part of coaching; motivation. You know?" Diggs coached at South Carolina, The Citadel, and Air Force before becoming the head coach at Morgan State in 1991. Today, most people just call him "Coach." Living with the disease, he's received support from the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Chapter officials find his attitude so remarkable; it rewarded Diggs with a special ride in a Porsche Carerra, leading up to the local chapter's annual fundraising event, the MS Mille. Diggs was diagnosed with MS in 2000. In 2009, he was elected to Shippensburg University's Athletics Hall of Fame. Diggs was the first Shippensburg football player to rush for 1,000 yards in one season in 1974. "Not once have I ever said to God, 'Why me?'" he added.

4. Faber volunteer 'embedded' in Nelson community
Each year in June, Kenny VanDerNoot and his wife Pettis hold what they now call their annual "Yard Party" at their home in Faber. The party, which began about 20 years ago, was intended for just family members. The next year the VanDerNoots started inviting friends, and then neighbors, and then other contacts they had until it became a guest list of 150 people. VanDerNoot even built a 40-square-foot grill to cook enough meat to feed every mouth that showed up. "Once you come you're invited next year," said VanDerNoot, 58. "We don't always send out invitations but once you've been invited to one, you're always invited." Stationed at Parris Island, VanDerNoot decided to live in South Carolina, find work and take a few classes at the local colleges. Though he has no degree, he took many classes at the College of Charleston, The Citadel and University of Southern California.

5. Samford facing key SoCon game against The Citadel
Samford hosts The Citadel at 2 p.m. Saturday. The Citadel (3-2, 2-0) is tied with Chattanooga for first place in the league, one game ahead of Samford (3-2, 1-1). Samford lost to Chattanooga 31-21 in the Bulldogs' conference opener. So a loss to The Citadel would leave Samford two games out of first place with no chance to make up ground through head-to-head play. Perhaps the biggest challenge facing Samford will be trying to contain The Citadel's option offense, which easily leads the Southern Conference with an average of 329.2 rushing yards per game, nearly 70 yards more than second-place Wofford. Last week, Samford's defense faced VMI, a team that averages 41 passes per game. By comparison, The Citadel has thrown the ball only 42 times all season. "There's really no good time to play an option team," Samford coach Chris Hatcher said. "They do what they do very well. We have to kind of change our mindset. We have to be very good at the point of attack, stop the fullback first, and keep them in some long-yardage situations."

6. Time sacks not just 'Old Ball Coach'
You know you're old if you saw Steve Spurrier play college football. In person. On Nov. 5, 1966, at the old Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla. Final score: Georgia 27, Florida 10. My dad and uncle took me to that neutral-field spectacle. There were lots of drunks - especially the loudly triumphant Georgia folks. My dad and I were fans of the Bulldogs - The Citadel's, not Georgia's. My uncle, who lived in Ormond Beach, Fla., was a Gators fan. So we pulled for Florida that day - especially for star quarterback Spurrier. The previous week, he had lifted the Gators to a 7-0 record with a 30-27 homecoming victory over Auburn, not merely with his passing prowess but by kicking a 40-yard field goal with 2:12 to play. Against Georgia's fierce pass rush, however, Spurrier threw three interceptions. That was way back when Spurrier was a 21-year-old en route to the Heisman Trophy. On Tuesday, he was a 70-year-old stepping down as "Head Ball Coach" at South Carolina.

7. Furman preparing for second half
A blowout loss at Chattanooga last Saturday has certainly left Furman's football team with a bad taste it its mouth during this bye week. But reflecting on the season as a whole at the midway point could make things a little less bitter. The Paladins are 3-3 overall and 1-1 in the Southern Conference, with losses to FCS' No. 1-ranked Coastal Carolina, No. 6 Chattanooga and FBS member Virginia Tech. For comparison sake, two years ago Furman was 2-4 six games in. They were 1-2 in the SoCon then and coming off a blowout loss at Chattanooga. That year the Paladins won their final five league games to share the conference championship and earn the league's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. A repeat of that remarkable run will require much work to be done before Furman returns to the field Oct. 24 when the Paladins host rival The Citadel. Those needed fixes were on display in Saturday's 31-3 loss, when the Paladins were held to 59 yards rushing, including 11 over the final three quarters.

8. WCU looks to break long losing streak at Wofford
As part of its revival season last year, the Western Carolina football program snapped an eight-game losing streak against Wofford. The Catamounts' 26-14 victory was part of a 5-2 Southern Conference record that allowed for a tie for second place. Saturday's 2 p.m. kickoff on ESPN3 between WCU (3-2, 1-1) and Wofford (3-3, 1-1) in Spartanburg gives the Cats a chance to break another eight-game skid. That's how many consecutive games WCU has lost at Wofford, a streak that datesto 1981. The Cats have not beaten the Terriers at their place since Wofford joined the SoCon in 1997. Both teams are part of a four-team logjam tied for third place in the league, between 2-0 leaders Chattanooga and The Citadel and 0-2 last-place Mercer and Virginia Military.

The Wounded Warrior Project wants veterans in Charleston to know they aren't alone. The nonprofit organization brought about 80 veterans, including their families, to the aircraft carrier Yorktown at Patriots Point on Tuesday night for a tour and dinner. The event was an opportunity to engage local and neighboring veterans, teach them about Charleston and the Yorktown and let them know about what Wounded Warriors is all about. "There's a lot of veterans around here," said Rob Louis, a spokesman for the organization. "They may not have taken the time to come out and see this beautiful piece of history." They also may not have known about opportunities to help them get on their feet, he added. Wounded Warriors offers training and education services and work programs to help veterans transition into civilian life. There are also support and health and wellness programs. Residents are encouraged to show support along their route, Louis said. Riders will begin at 8:45 a.m. Friday at The Citadel and finish downtown. On Saturday, they will ride from James Island to Folly Beach beginning at 8:45 a.m.

Returning after 25 years with the city, David Krumwiede will be the interim city manager during the search to replace outgoing David McCuen. McCuen is leaving the post after three years to become assistant city manager in Anderson on Nov. 9. Abbeville City Council approved a letter of understanding Tuesday night 8-1 for professional services, contracting Krumwiede to serve in the city manager role. Mayor Sarah Sherwood was the lone dissenter. "I did not agree with the letter of understanding as presented to Council," Sherwood said. "I saw potential pitfalls in the letter of understanding, including but not limited to the fiduciary responsibility of paying an interim city manager as well as a qualified permanent city manager candidate." Krumwiede, who currently serves the town of Due West in a part-time administrative role, has bachelor's and master's degrees in political science from The Citadel and University of South Carolina, respectively, and has served in public administration in Lancaster, Greer and Catawba County, North Carolina, before coming to Abbeville.

The 10th annual EMEA TAM Day kicked off to a large and engaged audience of more than 300 TAMs. Toby Luscher, TAM Practice Manager, got the day started with an interesting analogy about how Generation Z views technology differently from the older generations. He commented on how the younger generations have an expectation, not of technology, but of apps. He gave an example of how his daughter changed banks three times - not because of service issues or incentives, as would have previous generations, but rather because of the bank's apps. The world is increasingly moving toward a commoditized environment where true innovation is rooted in the customer or user experience. Written by Craig Stanley. Craig is on the Global Technology & Professional Services team and supports TAM service development. Craig developed the Customer Maturity Assessment, the NSX Readiness Assessment and several other methodologies used by TAMs. Craig has over 30 years of experience in IT, covering Development, Systems Support, Data Center Management, Strategic IT Planning, and Benchmarking. Prior to VMware, Craig was a Research Director and VP with Gartner, Inc. Craig managed and led the evolution of the server models and architected the storage management TCO and ROI models.

6a. Football press conference: Samford
Head Coach Mike Houston addresses the media about the upcoming game against Samford, along with cadet-athletes Tevin Floyd, Dominique Allen and Dondray Copeland. Selected quotes are below: "I want to start off by saying congratulations to Coach Spurrier for a great career at Duke, Florida and South Carolina and everything that he has accomplished and the way he accomplished it. I've gotten to know Coach Spurrier a bit and have a great respect for him. Not only for his football mind but he is genuinely a good person and a lot of fun to be around." "Last weekend was obviously a very memorable weekend for our program and our players, and especially for our 20 cadet-athletes that received their Citadel ring this past weekend. It's a special day in the life of a Citadel Cadet. We talked to the players on Friday night and the perfect way to remember that and punctuate that weekend in their minds 20 years from now is a big Southern Conference win over a tough opponent. It was a big weekend for those guys and for everyone that was back on campus for parents' weekend. I'm really excited about the way our team played. To be able to beat a team like Wofford and get our second SoCon win of the year; it was a great afternoon.

The Citadel baseball team has released its schedule for the 2016 campaign, head coach Fred Jordan announced Thursday. "Once again we will embark on an exciting schedule," Coach Jordan said. "The non-conference part is extremely challenging. We will improve as the season goes on because of that competition so we will once again be prepared to make a run at the SoCon Tournament." There will be 30 chances to catch Bulldog baseball at Riley Park over the regular season, beginning on Feb. 19 when The Citadel takes on Virginia Tech in its season opener. Non-conference play will continue until March 25 when The Citadel travels to Lexington, Virginia, to take on VMI in an early Southern Conference opener. SoCon competition continues April 8-10 as the Bulldogs host UNCG before traveling to Spartanburg, South Carolina, to take on Wofford April 15-17. The Citadel hosts Western Carolina April 22-24 and Furman the following weekend, featuring a scheduled doubleheader on April 30.

7. Volleyball Continues Homestand Tonight Against The Citadel
Looking to continue its recent surge, the UNCG volleyball team plays its third-straight home match Wednesday evening against The Citadel. The Spartans and Bulldogs will serve it up inside Fleming Gymnasium at 6 p.m. Live stats and a free HD video stream via the SoCon Digital Network will be available for fans unable to attend the contest.

A strong defensive effort nearly carried the VMI Keydets to victory, but an 83rd minute goal was the difference as the Furman Paladins managed a 1-0 victory in SoCon women's soccer action Tuesday at the OrthoCarolina Sports Complex in Pineville, N.C. The game was the makeup date of a contest postponed during early October due to the South Carolina flooding. The Keydets (5-10, 1-5 SoCon) had held the Paladins (10-4-1, 3-1-1), who have wins over Oklahoma and North Florida on their ledger this season, to just five shots on goal until the 83rd minute. Furman's Sanon Williams made a pass from the left side of the box to Natalie Lackey, who beat a Keydet defender and put the ball past Darien Dunham for the eventual game-winning goal. VMI women's soccer will return to action Friday, when the Keydets play host to their archrivals, The Citadel Bulldogs, at Patchin Field. Game time is set for 4 p.m. and the game will be on ESPN3.

9a. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier
Not only did Spurrier revolutionize college football with vertical passing, he became a rare coach who spoke his mind, for better or for worse. With the head ball coach gone, college football will never be the same without him. He was the ACC Coach of the Year in 1988 and 1989 before accepting the job at Florida. "He looked on TV like was real upset", Floyd said. The Visor did not care. Mack Brown, then at UNC, called Spurrier classless for the gesture. And I doubt we'll see anything like him again. It is only fair to your players. Then, the team goes to Texas A&M and Tennessee before a three-game homestand against Florida, The Citadel (the only game S.C. might be favored in) and Clemson. "I plan on coaching a long time", he said matter-of-factly.

9b. GWU turns attention to Big South newcomer Kennesaw State
Sometimes handling success is as big a challenge as adversity. Gardner-Webb is dealing with that this week in preparation for its first trip to Georgia to face Big South newcomer Kennesaw State Saturday at 1 p.m. GWU knocked off then-15th-rated Liberty, 34-20, last week but now with the celebrations behind, aims to carry momentum from that experience moving ahead. "We've still got a lot of young guys and I've got to see how we practice (this week)," Runnin' Bulldogs head coach Carroll McCray said at his weekly media luncheon. "We've got to go play with a focused attitude. "The team we're facing this week presents some problems. We're going into a hostile environment and our younger guys need to prove they can grow and handle success." The 'Dogs are battling another double-wing option team in the 4-1 Kennesaw State Owls. "Their coach, Brian Bohannon (also a former GWU assistant) was at Georgia Tech and Georgia Southern," McCray said. "So you'll see them run double slots and the triple option. They've got a quarterback, a transfer from The Citadel, who is a tough runner. I'm sure they've seen the Wofford game (versus GWU) and The Citadel video from last year.

4. The Citadel's Floyd Earns Second SoCon Weekly Honor
The Citadel linebacker Tevin Floyd has been named Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Floyd led The Citadel defense that held Wofford to just 124 yards rushing, 165 yards below the Terriers' season average entering the game, in a 39-12 victory. The junior from Tallahassee, Florida, recorded a season-high 11 tackles, including a career-high-tying 2.5 for loss, and forced one fumble. His forced fumble was recovered by the Bulldogs and converted into a 14-0 lead one play later. Floyd is averaging 1.75 tackles for loss in conference games this season, which ranks fourth in the SoCon. He ranks ninth overall in tackles with an average of 8.2 per game. This is Floyd's second Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Week recognition and the Bulldogs' third conference honor so far this season. He also was recognized following his week one performance of eight tackles and one interception that he returned 28 yards for a touchdown. Sophomore cornerback Dee Delaney was named Southern Conference Defensive Player of the Month last week for his play in September.

6. Bulldogs Fall on the Road
The Citadel women's soccer team fell to East Tennessee State in Johnson City, Tennessee on Sunday 8-0. It took ETSU (9-4-1, 3-0-1) less than 30 seconds to get on the board as the Bucs beat all Bulldog defenders down the field and then beat the keeper to make it 1-0. ETSU continued to pound the net, scoring four more goals in the first half to make it 5-0 heading into the half. The Bucs would tack on three more goals in the second half to earn the 8-0 win and stay perfect in Southern Conference play. The Bulldogs (1-14, 0-5) had plenty of opportunities with nine of the 17 shots on goal but were never able to connect and find the back of the net. Mady Riegel and Emilie Valenciano led the team with five and four shots, respectively.

1. Data paints rosy financial picture for Citadel alumni, bleak landscape for others
The strength of The Citadel alumni network is legendary. It has been whispered about in office hallways, glorified in a 6-foot-tall bronze replica of a class ring on campus, and even alluded to in a fictional version of the college on the diabolical Netflix series "House of Cards." Now, for the first time, the much-vaunted Citadel boys' club (and girls' club) has some statistics to back up its allure. According to new figures compiled by the U.S. Department of Education, the senior military college's graduates have the second-highest median earnings in the state 10 years after graduation, trailing only graduates of the Medical University of South Carolina, and college leaders say alumni networking plays an outsize role in those high earnings. The data comes from the College Scorecard, an initiative of the Obama administration meant to make the college decision-making process more transparent. Among other revelations, the data shows that for-profit colleges in South Carolina have low graduation rates and tend to saddle students with massive amounts of debt.

2. Latest lawsuit filed against The Citadel seeks damages for ReVille victim
An attorney representing a now-18-year-old victim of Louis "Skip" ReVille has filed a civil suit against The Citadel alleging the school and its leaders failed to protect the boy from the serial molester. The 85-page complaint, filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, lists the school; its president, John Rosa; general counsel Mark Brandenburg; Rosa's former executive assistant, Joseph Trez; and the school's former summer camp director, Jennifer Garrott, as defendants in the case. The court documents identify the plaintiff only as John Doe 201. "I would really appreciate it if The Citadel would get serious about being accountable," said Gregg Meyers, an attorney for the teen. "They messed this up pretty badly, and they shouldn't have. They knew about this guy and caught him over and over and over again, breaking their own rules. ...They knew, and they did nothing."

3a. State allows some Harbor, Daufuskie island property owners to take emergency action against erosion
The Department of Health and Environmental Control's Ocean and Coastal Resource Management division has issued eight emergency orders for property in Beaufort County, agency spokesman Jim Beasley said Friday. Four orders are for homes on Harbor Island. The remaining four are on Daufuskie. Under the orders, homeowners are allowed to use sandbags and to bring in sand from elsewhere on the beach for minor renourishment. One of the Harbor Island orders only allows sandbags. Possibilities for longterm fixes include a larger scale beach renourishment, with or without groins -- man-made structures that trap sand as it drifts down the beach. Homeowners could also move their houses back on the property or relocate them to another lot, Beasley said. Short-term or longterm, none of the erosion-control options are cheap. Harbor Island residents Tricia and Lew Gardner shelled out $30,000 for 150, 1-ton sandbags last year, Tricia said. Those bags were tossed around within six months, the couple said. The Gardners then wrote Gov. Nikki Haley and Sanford, asking what could be done. The couple was directed to a wave dissipation system, the subject of a study at The Citadel. State law restricts the use of sea walls, bulkheads and similar measures for the effect on the surrounding beach. The wave dissipation system was presented as a permeable alternative.

4a. Navy Training Preparing Sailors for Fleet Readiness
Families, Friends, Shipmates, As the weather begins to cool here in Great Lakes, it tells me that we are well into the school year and the holidays will be quickly approaching. Our first celebration will be the Navy's 240th Birthday with the theme "Ready Then, Ready Now, Ready Always." Our Navy birthday is as an opportunity to tell our Navy's story. For 240 years, our Navy has continued a proud tradition of service by recruiting and training the highest quality officer and enlisted Sailors to maintain our Navy's standing as the pre-eminent maritime fighting force in the world. At Recruit Training Command (RTC), we recently completed our second round of testing for electronic tablet distribution to recruits as part of our e-Sailor initiative. This was another huge step for the Navy as we continue making technological strides at boot camp. This program is specifically designed to increase how Navy training is absorbed and retained in a way that recruits are already accustomed to learning. I have also had the opportunity to continue visiting with various commands within the domain. Most recently, I had the great pleasure of visiting with midshipmen at The Citadel, my alma mater.

4b. Father of Citadel graduate killed on I-26 sues driver, others
The father of a Citadel graduate killed earlier this year while walking on Interstate 26 is suing the alleged drunk driver, the establishment that served the driver alcohol, a security company and Charleston County. David Mark Ross filed the 33-page wrongful death suit Sept. 24 in Charleston County Circuit Court. His son, Carson Neymoss, died Nov. 9 after being struck by a car driven by Allen Lee Gilliam Jr., 34, of Atlantic Palms Lane in North Charleston. Gilliam was charged with felony driving under the influence and is awaiting trial. He settled a civil petition with the family in June for $85,000 but is still named in the wrongful death lawsuit. Gilliam attended a five-year anniversary party the night of Nov. 8 at Marion's in the French Quarter and was served alcohol by catering company Icebox Bar Inc. - both of which are named in the suit.

4c. At 25, Center for Women going strong
A group of women sits around a table inside a pale-green house on Cannon Street on a recent Thursday morning. It's only around 9 a.m., but that doesn't deter them from a hard topic of discussion: finance. Four ladies are there to listen to insights from two bank employees as part of the Center for Women's "Ready to Work" program, designed for women looking for perspective about the job process. "They help you through life coaching, stress management, financial management. Whatever your need may be, there's assistance for that," said Rosalind Jones, a Charleston area resident who attended the meeting. For the center, this year is significant: It's now 25 years old. "That's a big deal," said Amy Brennan, executive director. "There aren't a lot of nonprofits that stay viable for that long in a community." Brennan formerly held a development director post at The Citadel Foundation. Before coming to the foundation in 2012, she headed up the YMCA of Coastal Carolina. Brennan said the perception of the word feminism has changed.

5a. The Citadel uses ground attack to dump Wofford 39-12
Dominique Allen's two first-quarter rushing touchdowns paved the way for a rout of Wofford 39-12 on Saturday afternoon. Allen has seven rushing touchdowns so far this season. It's the second time in his career he's had multiple rushing scores in the same quarter. Allen ran for 72 yards on the day and was 7 for 10 passing for 125 yards and a touchdown. The Bulldogs (3-2 overall, 2-0 Southern Conference) took a 36-12 lead when Allen completed a 24-yard touchdown to Brandon Eakins with 2:30 remaining in the third quarter. The Citadel's Tyler Renew had 15 carries for 85 yards rushing and a touchdown, while Reggie Williams added a rushing touchdown.

5c. Four times Citadel could have snapped Wofford's 16-game streak
Coach Mike Houston said this week that Wofford's 16-game win streak over The Citadel means "absolutely nothing" to the current Bulldogs. But you can bet it means something to Citadel fans, and junior guard Kyle Weaver admitted there's a little extra on the line in Saturday's 2 p.m. Parents Day game at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "Maybe there is a little extra edge," Weaver said. "Nobody wants to lose to the same team over and over, and we were so close last year. We saw that we were right there; we just have to execute a little better." Last year's 17-13 loss was not the only time The Citadel could have snapped that streak before it reached a not-so-sweet 16. Here are four times The Citadel could have (maybe even should have) beaten the Terriers to end the skid.

5d. Citadel Notes: Renewal for fullback Tyler Renew
Tyler Renew had become something of a forgotten man in The Citadel's offense. A starter last year, he watched as first Isiaha Smith and then Evan McField took over the role of starting fullback. In the Bulldogs' first four games this season, Renew ran only seven times for 24 yards while the freshman McField became one of the top rushers in the Southern Conference. "It was tough," said Renew, a 5-11, 217-pounder junior from Columbia. "But I knew I had to keep practicing well and to be a team player, regardless of whether I was playing or on the sideline. I tried to keep encouraging the guys in front of me and wait for my time to come, and then make the most of it." Renew got that chance in Saturday's game against Wofford at Johnson Hagood Stadium. Making his first start of the season, Renew ran for 85 yards and a touchdown as The Citadel snapped a 16-game losing streak against Wofford with a 39-12 victory.

6. Mocs Volleyball Wins 3-0 At Citadel
The Chattanooga Mocs volleyball team clinched a 3-0 win over The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. UTC improves to 16-3 and 5-1 in Southern Conference play, marking its 10th sweep. "We have great leadership and grit within our team," head coach Travis Filar stated. "We showed one of our biggest strengths is our depth, as we made some changes in our lineup and still competed at a high level." Chattanooga played different starters and substitutes in the matchup, including sophomore Eden Murray (Hoschton, Ga.), who checked into her first set of the season. Freshman Emily Plumlee (Chesapeake, Va.) featured her best stats, with seven kills and a .417 attack percentage. She even hit the match-winning kill. After winning the first two sets (25-19, 26-24), the Mocs came out firing to clinch the final frame 25-12. "I continue to be so proud of our team's toughness and how we are growing throughout the season," Filar said. "Friday's loss to Furman was physically and emotionally draining so to have a quick turnaround and win in three speaks volumes."

2. FCS games provide relief to flood-devastated South Carolina
It may not be heard often, but college football teams in South Carolina are rooting for each other this week. Football, though, hasn't felt so important in a state where people usually are passionate about it. Their focus has been on the flooding which followed the effects of Hurricane Joaquin last weekend. While the hurricane missed the East Coast, it created significant rain in South Carolina, which led to the massive floods - the worst coming on the coastal areas in the lower portion of the state. As dams failed, the water felt relentless: many homes and businesses were devastated, power went out, evacuations and rescues were needed, drinking water was made unsafe and the death toll rose to at least 17 in the state, with several more in North Carolina. The University of South Carolina even moved Saturday's game against LSU to Baton Rouge. "Our thoughts and prayers right now are with everyone across the state of South Carolina that's been affected by extreme flooding," said The Citadel coach Mike Houston, whose school is located in hard-hit Charleston. The Bulldogs were on a bye last weekend and had players unable to get back to campus immediately after the storm. "Obviously, some places are much worse than others and there's some families that are still facing some very, very tough circumstances and have had some pretty extreme tragedy. That kind of puts everything into perspective."

3. Citadel tries to get back into routine after flooding
It's everything as usual this week at The Citadel. But at the same time, not quite. Saturday's 2 p.m. Southern Conference football game against Wofford is still to be played at Johnson Hagood Stadium in Charleston, where hearts are heavy from the catastrophic flooding that devastated part of that region and took 17 lives across the state. "Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who has been affected by the flooding," The Citadel head coach Mike Houston said. "Some of us are getting back to a fairly normal schedule. But I know there are others all across the state of South Carolina who are still dealing with lots of adversity and tragedy. ...There are some families that are facing some tough circumstances. That kind of puts it in perspective." Houston said The Citadel was not affected as much as some other areas of Charleston. The stadium is fine and the soggy grass is drying out this week. The Bulldogs had an open date last weekend when the storm hit. The biggest problem was getting players back to school.

4. Past Wofford loses mean 'nothing' as Citadel preps for Terriers
The Citadel hasn't defeated Wofford since 1998. Sixteen games, 16 losses. But for Citadel head coach Mike Houston, the longest active series streak in the Southern Conference, means "absolutely nothing" as his Bulldogs prepare to host the Terriers Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "We're playing the 2015 Wofford Terriers," Houston said. "Anything that's behind us has no relevance to us. Our eyes are straight ahead, focused on what's in front of us." Wofford head coach Mike Ayers has made sure his team isn't banking on those past wins. "The thing we try to emphasize to our guys every year is 'They're a new team. We're a new team and this is a new ball game,'" Ayers said. "'You better get ready. You better understand those guys down there are going to compete and going to compete hard.'" Houston, in his second season with the Bulldogs, has only been around for one of those loses. The Citadel came within inches of snapping the streak last season in Spartanburg as quarterback Aaron Miller was ruled just short of breaking the goal line on the final play of a 17-13 loss. "They talk about football being a game of inches," Houston said. "That one was less than an inch. That one was millimeters."

The Citadel baseball team has released its schedule for the 2016 campaign, head coach Fred Jordan announced Thursday. "Once again we will embark on an exciting schedule," Coach Jordan said.

There will be 30 chances to catch Bulldog baseball at Riley Park over the regular season, beginning on Feb. 19 when The Citadel takes on Virginia Tech in its season opener. Non-conference play will continue until March 25 when The Citadel travels to Lexington, Virginia, to take on VMI in an early Southern Conference opener. SoCon competition continues April 8-10 as the Bulldogs host UNCG before traveling to Spartanburg, South Carolina, to take on Wofford April 15-17. The Citadel hosts Western Carolina April 22-24 and Furman the following weekend, featuring a scheduled doubleheader on April 30.

Coach Monte Lee's Tigers will play two games against the Bulldogs at Riley Park on March 15-16. It will be Clemson's first visit to The Citadel since 1990, when the Bulldogs' College World Series team beat the Tigers by 11-2 at the old College Park. The Citadel will host South Carolina on March 1, and takes on College of Charleston in a three-game series March 4-6. The first and third games of that series will be at Riley Park, with the middle game at the Cougars' Patriots Point field. The season opens Feb. 19-21 with a three-game series against ACC foe Virginia Tech. Charleston Southern comes to Riley Park on March 29. "The non-conference part (of the schedule) is extremely challenging," said Citadel coach Fred Jordan. "We will improve as the season goes along because of that competition so we will once again be prepared to make a run at the SoCon Tournament."

7. 2015-16 Preview: The Citadel Bulldogs
When a person thinks of Southern Conference basketball, The Citadel probably isn't the program that pops into the minds of most. Though the Bulldogs have had some successful seasons as a member of the conference to first utilize an end-of-the-season conference tournament, however, that tournament remains one that the charter member Bulldogs have yet to win. In fact, The Citadel is among a short list of teams to have never qualified for an NCAA Tournament berth. The program showed some signs of turning things around when Ed Conroy took over as the program's head coach back in 2006. However, the Charleston-born Conroy would see too much success, as he would be snagged away by Tulane following the 2009-10 season--a campaign which saw the Bulldogs finish .500 or better for a second-straight campaign. In fact, the Bulldogs would post 36 wins in the final two campaigns of Conroy's tenure.

8. Mocs Volleyball At Furman, Citadel
The Chattanooga Mocs volleyball team hits the highway to square off with Furman Friday at 6:00 p.m. (E.D.T.) in Greenville, S.C., and The Citadel Saturday at Noon in Charleston, S.C. UTC is in the midst of a historic season with the program's best start at 15-2 and on an 11-match winning streak. "We play very connected and together," head coach Travis Filar stated. "The front row to back row connection, our passer to setter to hitting connection, is phenomenal.You can't scout the intangible strength of our team playing as together as possible." Chattanooga is coming off two Southern Conference wins last week over Wofford (3-0) and Mercer (3-1) making the Mocs the only undefeated team in league action at 4-0. UTC leads the conference in assists per set (13.33), digs per set (17.57), hitting percentage (.268) and kills per set (14.11). "If I was scouting us, it'd be hard to focus on one thing," said Filar. "I think our strength is the balance in our offense. All of our attackers can score points and put pressure on our opponent. We've got great depth."

1. Man rescued by Chester prosecutor will make it after all to Florida - his destination before being caught in S.C. flood
George Osterhues - a Canadian man saved from a car caught in floodwaters in Columbia - will make it to Florida after all, again thanks to the local family who didn't hesitate to be heroes on Sunday. Tom and Julie Hall and their family - Julie Hall a Chester County prosecutor - rescued Osterhues from his vehicle almost completely submerged in floodwaters. He had stopped in Columbia on his way to Florida this past weekend. Tom Hall, a 1989 Citadel University graduate, posted on Facebook that Osterhues needed a ride to Florida and he says that within minutes, Citadel alumni stepped up to organize the trip. Osterhues' car was totaled in the flood that claimed lives and created devastation around much of South Carolina's state capitol city. "Incredible generous community at The Citadel," Hall said. The Herald's story of the Hall family saving 87-year-old Osterhues has become a national story of heroism.

3. Under Duggar Baucom, Citadel basketball will 'embrace the pace'
It's possible that no college basketball team in the country will undergo a more extensive makeover this season than The Citadel under new coach Duggar Baucom. Baucom, hired last March after 10 years at VMI, will take one of the slowest paced teams in the nation and turn it into what he hopes is the fastest. Hence the Bulldogs' new motto, "Embrace the pace." "Of all the teams I've rebuilt, this is certainly the most challenging," said Baucom, whose club started practice this week, "just because of all the different components." Last year, while going 11-19 in coach Chuck Driesel's fifth and final season, the Bulldogs played at an adjusted tempo of 59.3 possessions per game, a pace that ranked among the slowest in the nation (344th out of 351 Division I teams, according to stats guru Ken Pomeroy).

4. Chadwell dubs Saturday's conference opener "Battle for sweet tea"
Charleston Southern begins a new season - the second season - on Saturday when the Buccaneers host Monmouth to open Big South Conference play at Buccaneer Field. Kickoff is at noon. CSU had an off week to settle down from a third consecutive win over The Citadel and focus in on the new slate of games ahead. The Bucs will face their largest conference schedule in history with six league games, including Monmouth's first visit to Charleston. The Bucs controlled the final 30 minutes in their 33-20 win over The Citadel, outscoring the Bulldogs 27-3 in the second half. It was arguably the best half of football ever played by a CSU team. Bucs' head coach Jamey Chadwell, who is now 21-8 at CSU, expects his team to come in confident, but still extremely focused on the task at hand.

5. Seminoles Release 2015-16 Schedule
Head coach Jennifer Hyde and the Seminole women's tennis program released the 2015-16 schedule Wednesday afternoon that includes 15 matches against teams that finished last season ranked in the ITA standings. Returning five of six starters from last year's ACC Semifinal match against Georgia Tech, Florida State's beefed-up competition will bode well for the 'Noles when the NCAA Tournament rolls around. "Our 2015-16 schedule is one of the toughest we've had in my time at FSU," head coach Jennifer Hyde said. "This year's team is poised for another big year, and our schedule will provide us one opportunity after the next to start a climb. Our ACC conference match schedule shows exactly why the ACC is the toughest conference in the nation, and our out of conference matches will give us looks at many top notch programs as well." For the second consecutive season, the women will play host to a United States military academy, this year against Navy on February 20. That same day, the men's team will host The Citadel as a show of recognition towards Florida State's Student Veterans and military community.

4. Sonny Boy Lane residents positive despite tornado and flood
Sonny Boy Lane residents, still reeling from the tornado that tore through their neighborhood about a week earlier, were relieved when they weren't hard hit by last weekend's flood. Tree limbs and debris that the twister left in its wake are piled on the roadside and strewn about yards. Several of the damaged roofs remain covered in bright blue plastic, and the sagging shell of the only room of one house that's still standing sits surrounded by pieces of the roof and walls, and soaked furniture. Mickey Thompson, who moved to Johns Island about two years ago, said last weekend he kept a watchful eye on Simmons Creek behind his house as the water rose and covered his backyard. His home and property had sustained about $150,000 in damage from the tornado, and he was hoping not to suffer another blow. He breathed a sigh of relief when the water receded after coming within feet of his house. Thompson, like other residents, was taking the flood in stride, and being grateful that nobody was seriously hurt in either devastating weather event. He misses being able to shrimp, he said. But his boat blew away in the tornado. And his wife, Linda Thompson, said she misses crabbing from the dock. "But the dock's gone." But the couple remains happy with where they live. Originally from Hartsville, Mickey graduated from The Citadel. He loved his years in Charleston and always wanted to move back, he said, but jobs forced him and Linda to move 14 times and live in 11 states, they finally got back to the Charleston area when he retired. "It took us 43 years to get here," he said. "I'm not going anywhere."

5. Wofford's 16-game streak vs. Citadel means 'nothing' to Bulldogs
Mike Houston is responsible for only 1/16th of The Citadel's current 16-game losing streak against Wofford. And the Bulldogs' coach estimates the impact of that streak on this week's game to be even less than 1/16th. "Absolutely nothing," Houston said Tuesday when asked what the 16-game skid against Wofford - the longest current streak in the Southern Conference - meant to this year's Bulldogs. "We're playing the 2015 Wofford Terriers," said Houston, whose first Citadel team lost by 17-13 at Wofford last season. "We had a very close game last year; you can't get any closer. They talk about football being a game of inches; that was a game of millimeters." The Bulldogs lost on the final play of the game last season, when quarterback Aaron Miller was stopped just short of the goal line, at least in the estimation of the game officials. "Anything behind us has no relevance to us," said Houston, whose 2-2 Bulldogs host 3-2 Wofford at 2 p.m. Saturday at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "Our eyes are straight ahead and focused on what's in front of us."

6. UTC Soccer Team Wins 2-1 Over Citadel
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women's soccer team posted a 2-1 Southern Conference victory over The Citadel Tuesday night at Bob Jones University in Greenville, S.C. The match was a make-up after Sunday's meeting was postponed due to historic flooding in Charleston, S.C. The Mocs improve to 3-8-2 on the year and 1-2-1 in league play while the Bulldogs fall to 1-12 overall and 0-3 against the conference. After trailing 1-0 at halftime, the Mocs scored twice in the second half to get their first league win since defeating The Citadel 3-2 in 2012. "This was a huge win for us," Chattanooga head coach Gavin McKinney said. "Maybe this will give us some momentum going into the matches this weekend." The Citadel score first on an unassisted goal from Mady Riegel who got past both the Chattanooga defender and keeper to put the Bulldogs on the board first in the 25th minute. That score would stand through halftime.

The Bulldog soccer team scored big with two wins in conference play. They were able to defeat The Citadel 5-0 and Mercer 1-0. These two games added to their undefeated SoCon record of 4-0-0 and an overall record of 9-4-0. They are also on a five game winning streak. To start the two game road trip, the team traveled to Charleston, South Carolina to go up against The Citadel. Going into the game, the Bulldogs had a 7-1-1 record against The Citadel and repeated history to improve to eight wins over them in 5-0 shutout. This was the third game this year where they were able to score at least five goals on an opponent. "Our team has done a really great job in SoCon play so far as we have shutout four teams in a row," sophomore education major and midfielder Virginia McNeil said.

8. Sapakoff: A quest to find football hope for the Gamecocks fails
South Carolina is 1-7 in its last eight Southeastern Conference football games and the lone victory came last November on a freaky, miraculous, chilly day in Gainesville, Fla. The Gamecocks won 23-20 in overtime thanks to a blocked field goal and blocked punt in the fourth quarter. Florida fired head coach Will Muschamp. The next day. The path to 4-8: Schedule. This isn't the ACC, which currently has two ranked teams. As if No. 7 LSU isn't tough enough, the Gamecocks also will face No. 6 Clemson, No. 9 Texas A&M and No. 11 Florida over their last seven games. Butch Jones' Tennessee program is a mess but that game is in Knoxville. The Citadel seems like a sure win, but Vanderbilt showed life last week in an upset victory at Middle Tennessee. 2016. It's hard to see South Carolina winning more games next season. Without senior running back Brandon Wilds and if junior wide receiver Pharoh Cooper leaves early for the NFL, who is the top returning skill-position player?

9. The Warchant Wrap (Tuesday, Oct. 6, 2015)
With four days remaining before their annual showdown with rival Miami, the Florida State Seminoles are still hopeful that sophomore tailback Dalvin Cook will recover quickly from his pulled hamstring. But if Cook isn't available, or if he's limited, FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said he has high hopes for little-used sophomore Johnathan Vickers and true freshman Jacques Patrick. Forced into emergency duty Saturday at Wake Forest, Vickers ran for one touchdown and finished with 33 yards on 10 carries. He also caught two passes for nine yards. While Vickers didn't appear to be quite the big-play threat that FSU has in Cook or junior Mario Pender, who is out with a collapsed lung, Fisher pointed out that Vickers had never been thrust into that type of role before. The former North Florida Christian star carried the ball only once last season (against The Citadel), and he had no 2015 carries coming into the Wake Forest game. "I think it gives him the confidence that, 'I went into a game that wasn't a mop-up role. It was early in the game, very critical, and I was a key part in what happened,'" Fisher said. "Scored a touchdown, picked up blitzes, made short-yardage runs, caught a couple screens ... just going out there and finally doing it when it really matters. That's huge. For his inner confidence. That can be huge."

1. Scorecard backs The Citadel's legendary networking, flunks Art Institute
The strength of The Citadel alumni network is legendary. It has been whispered about in office hallways, glorified in a 6-foot-tall bronze replica of a class ring on campus, and even alluded to in a fictional version of the college on the Netflix series "House of Cards." Now, for the first time, the legend has some statistics to back it up. According to new figures compiled by the U.S. Department of Education, the senior military college's graduates have the second-highest median earnings in the state 10 years after graduation, trailing only graduates of the Medical University of South Carolina, and college leaders say alumni networking plays an outsize role in those high earnings. The data come from the College Scorecard, an initiative of the Obama administration meant to make the college decision-making process more transparent for students and parents. Among other revelations, the data shows that for-profit colleges in South Carolina have low graduation rates and tend to saddle students with massive amounts of debt.

2b. Couple moves wedding amidst storm
A storm lasts days. A marriage lasts longer. And for couple Michelle Godwin and John Ravan, Saturday's rain didn't make them change the date of their special day. The couple was scheduled to get married at The Citadel's chapel, but had to move their ceremony and reception to the Comfort Inn and Suites in Mount Pleasant due to rain. The couple's wedding planner, Heather Reed Stokes, said this rain experience was one unto its own. "We've definitely dealt with rain before and obviously we always have a backup for rain but this is kind of unique," she told The Post and Courier Saturday. The couple was able to retain their disc jockey. Things also worked out with their florist, who's the wedding planner, Godwin said. Stokes said the photographer is also still attending. They did have to give up their caterer, who's based downtown, and their wedding's original home: The Citadel, where Ravan received two degrees, and Godwin is currently earning her master's.

3b. Fairfield County native represents on world stage
Evan Johnson of Blackstock, a bagpiper who is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Richard Johnson, has begun his Citadel career with a bang. He was asked to join The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes on their trip to Edinburgh, Scotland, to play in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo. This is the third time The Citadel Band has been invited to play in the Military Tattoo since 1991. They are the only U.S. military college band to ever be invited to play in the tattoo. The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is an annual series of performances by British, Commonwealth, and international military bands and display teams on the esplanade of Edinburgh Castle. There were nightly performances throughout the month of August. Each performance is accompanied by spectacular fireworks and light shows. The Tattoo is said to attract as many as 217,000 spectators annually. It is also televised in 30 countries around the world. The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes joins many world-class bands and performers including the United States Honor Guard and the Swiss Top Secret Drum Corps. The trip was made possible through donations by Citadel alumni, many of whom have traveled to Scotland to see the performance.

Usually the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo screens around New Year's, but the 2015 event will be shown tomorrow night on ABC. The event takes place in August each year in front of Edinburgh Castle. In 2014 ABC moved it to September with a New Year's rerun, meaning this is likely to get another repeat. From the unique setting of the Esplanade of Edinburgh Castle, the 2015 Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo marks the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Britain, with the Massed Bands of the RAF and the Queen's Colour Squadron taking centre stage. East meets West at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, with the east represented by a Bollywood dance extravaganza, the Military Band of the People's Liberation Army of China, and the Changxing Lotus Dragon Dance Folklore Group. From the West, the UK home team is joined by the Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes from Charleston in South Carolina and the United States Air Force Honor Guard, based in Washington DC.

4a. Crony Capitalism The Cause of Society's Problems
Since the economic downturn of 2008, the critics of capitalism have redoubled their efforts to persuade the American people and many others around the world that the system of individual freedom and free enterprise has failed. These critics have insisted that it is unbridled capitalism, set lose on the world, which is the source of all of our personal and society misfortunes. We hear and read this not only in the popular news media and out of the mouths of the political pundits. We see it also in the election of a radical socialist to the leadership of the British Labor party, and a self-proclaimed "democratic socialist" riding high in the public opinion polls for the Democratic Party's nomination to the U.S. presidency. The first observation to make is that many if not most of the social and economic misfortunes that are most frequently talked about are not the product of a "failed" free enterprise. The reason for this is that a consistently practiced free enterprise system no longer exists in the United States. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4b. Time to End Monetary Central Planning
There is no way to describe current Federal Reserve policy other than as monetary confusion and misdirection. In a nutshell, Janet Yellen and the other members of the Fed's Board of Governors have no idea what to do. Do they raise certain interest rates over which they have some direct influence? Do they keep them at their current rock bottom levels, as they have for the last six years? On the one hand, government measured unemployment levels have fallen from their high of over 10 percent at the depth of the recent recession to 5.1 percent in September 2015. However, there is an alternative measure of unemployment also calculated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It includes not only those currently unemployed and looking for work during the previous four weeks, but also "discourage workers" who have stopped looking for jobs who would be interested in working if they found a suitable employment; and those who are part-time who would prefer to be employed full-time. If these two additional groups are included, the U.S. unemployment rate is 10 percent, double the headline "official" level of unemployment the administration touts as a "positive" sign of the economy's recovery. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

5. Exclusive: Winthrop Poll: Most say state should decide fate of historic names
The ghost of Ben Tillman might be safe on the campuses of South Carolina universities. Most S.C. residents - 63 percent - say state lawmakers, not the institutions, should decide whether to change the names of streets, parks or buildings that bear the names of historical figures or events, according to a new Winthrop Poll question asked exclusively for The State. The results could be bad news for The Citadel, whose leaders want to remove a Confederate banner from a campus chapel, and to Clemson and Winthrop students and alumni, who want to remove the name of Ben Tillman - a white supremacist, lynch-mob advocate and former S.C. governor and U.S. senator - from campus buildings. A.D. Carson, a Clemson University graduate student who advocates removing Tillman's name from that school's Tillman Hall, said he was "not surprised" by the poll results. "We talk about the so-called idea of rewriting history," Carson said. But, he added, people do not spend enough time "attempting to empathize with the people who might be offended."

6e. Citadel Club takes vets to football game
"It was a fantastic outing, probably the best we've had since I've been here," said Ronnie Beasley, one of six residents of Veterans Victory House treated to a trip to The Citadel football game last weekend, courtesy of the Colleton County Citadel Club. The last game Beasley attended was "years ago, back in the 80s or 90s," he said, adding it was too bad the Bulldogs didn't win. But everyone had a "fantastic" time in spite of the loss. Inviting the veterans to the football game was a Colleton County Citadel Club idea, but getting the vets to the game was an all-out team effort. Beasley graduated from The Citadel in 1970, and has lived at the Victory House about three years. "Ronnie and I have worked on other ideas to include our vets in our Citadel Club activities," said Lee Petrolawicz of The Citadel Club. Veterans making the trip included Beasley, William Schlenker, Robert Wolfe, Dempsie Sanders, Wade Rawlinson and James Vaughan. Obviously, the logistics of moving a bus-load of disabled veterans was daunting. "The expense was the least of the concerns. When we came up with the tailgate idea, we knew that we had a lot of work to do. However, no mountain is too great to climb for Citadel alumni," Petrolawicz said.

7c. Citadel 'still has goals in front of us' despite CSU loss
After the shock of Saturday's 33-20 loss to Charleston Southern, disappointed Citadel fans could comfort themselves with a glance at the Southern Conference standings. Despite a third straight loss to their Lowcountry rival, the 2-2 Bulldogs remain tied for first in the SoCon with Chattanooga and Furman, each with 1-0 league marks. And with an open date this week, The Citadel will remain unbeaten in the SoCon until at least Oct. 10, when it hosts Wofford. "Our players were very disappointed after the Charleston Southern game," Houston said Tuesday. "It's a game we wanted to win, a game we had a chance to win that we put ourselves in position to win." "But at the same time, it was a non-conference game, and the important ones for us are the conference games. We are 2-2 and 1-0 in the conference with a big game coming up against Wofford. We're focused on our goals, which are all still in front of us and well within our reach and control."

7d. Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney's criticism of Notre Dame is misplaced
Clemson Coach Dabo Swinney broke every rule in big-game coaching this week when took a few swipes at his opponent in advance of a televised, prime-time event. Worse, that team is ranked higher in the polls than Clemson and was once coached by Lou Holtz, the poor-mouthing maestro who pronounced every upcoming opponent the equal of Vince Lombardi's Green Bay Packers. Swinney has always been a different cat, but we're not sure what he's up to. With Notre Dame, strength of schedule probably will never be an issue. Notre Dame, UCLA and USC remain the only Football Bowl Subdivision schools to never play a lower-level opponent. Clemson has played at least one every year since 2007. In 2008, the Tigers played two: The Citadel and South Carolina State. In 2010, Clemson took on a religious-affiliated school, but it wasn't Notre Dame or even Brigham Young. Clemson played Presbyterian.

8a. Bulldogs Head To GMC For SEARC 2
The Citadel rifle teams continue the early portion of their 2015-16 schedule Saturday in Milledgeville, Georgia, at the second Southeastern Air Rifle Conference match of the season. "The match will be fired on paper targets – the old-fashioned way – for both guns," head coach William Smith said. "We are practicing on paper this week to get a feel for it." The Citadel is competing against Clemson, Georgia Southern, Wofford and host Georgia Military College this weekend. The Bulldogs are traveling mostly the same shooters who competed in the season-opening SEARC 1 at VMI last weekend with the addition of junior team captain Patrick Meyer, senior Michael Chen and freshman Allison Auten making her collegiate debut.

9b. National Geographic Special - Warhawks Beware
Georgia Southern football fans have a lot to be happy with; the Eagles are soaring higher and higher in the 2015 campaign. When the Eagles made the 2,600 mile voyage to the land of the Vandals, they were coming off a nearly perfect home victory against a former SoCon Conference rival, The Citadel Bulldogs. The Eagles' defense quickly denied the Bulldogs any opportunities in the passing game, forcing the Bulldogs to attempt to utilize their running game. The Eagles would win decisively, 48-13. Upon arrival in Moscow, Idaho this past Saturday, the Eagles' defense was anxious to begin Sun Belt Conference play. Soon enough, the Vandals' offense would succumb to the Eagles' no-nonsense, smash-mouth defense. Competing like reigning Sun Belt Conference Champions through all four quarters, the Eagles' defense held their heads high when the last whistle blew. This was another opponent checked off the list but most impressively, since entering the FBS last season, the Eagles have yet to lose in the Sun Belt Conference.
