1a. The Citadel advances with 41-38 win over Coastal Carolina
The Citadel football team earned a 41-38 win over Coastal Carolina in its first FCS playoff game since 1992 on Saturday in Conway, South Carolina. The Citadel had three 100-yard rushers, led by sophomore quarterback Dominque Allen's career-high 174 with two touchdowns. Junior B-Back Tyler Renew registered his third straight 100-yard game with 129 yards and one touchdown, and sophomore A-Back Cam Jackson added 113 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, the Bulldogs forced four turnovers. Sophomore Kailik Williams grabbed an interception and recovered a fumble, and fellow sophomore Shy Phillips grabbed an interception. Senior Mitchell Jeter recovered a fumble forced by Tevin Floyd on the final defensive play of the game for The Citadel. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early 7-0 lead less than two minutes into the first quarter after a six-yard touchdown run by Jackson. The drive started at the Chanticleers' 11-yard line after Williams picked off the pass at the 39-yard line and returned it 28 yards, setting up the three-play scoring drive. Coastal Carolina answered on its following possession with a 91-yard touchdown pass to even the score at 7-7. On The Citadel's next possession, Renew continued to tear defenses apart on the ground and recorded his first touchdown of the day with 5:56 left on the clock in the first quarter. The score would give the Bulldogs their second lead of the day after starting the drive on the CCU 25-yard line.

2a. Citadel's photographer of 30 years, Russ Pace, set to retire
Russell Pace was hired by The Citadel in 1986 to take pictures. Since then, Pace has produced perhaps half a million images - of the military college's dress parade (homecoming), sports matches and campus life. Some of those photographs have been published in the Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Time, Newsweek and Sports Illustrated. Hundreds have appeared in the pages of The Post and Courier. On Jan. 1, Pace will retire, relocating with his wife to Hilton Head Island where the couple will live by the beach and work on building up a health care-sector nonprofit, he said. He's remained at The Citadel for 30 years "because of the cadets, faculty, staff and administration," who have made him feel welcomed, who have valued his contributions - for whom his affection swells. "It's been a fun place," he said. Lt. General John W. Rosa, president of The Citadel, lauded Pace's visual panorama accrued over three decades. "The remarkable photographs taken by Russ Pace have become iconic images documenting the rhythm of life for the Corps of Cadets, the beauty of our campus, the achievements of our athletics teams and the city of Charleston itself," Rosa said in a statement. "His extraordinary talent combined with his dedication to visually record almost every parade, game or event over a period of 30 years is commendable. In his photographs, Russ leaves a visual legacy that will last for lifetimes to come."

3a. Test launches and registration underway for Storm the Citadel 2016
Eggs are flying through the air at Ft. Johnson Middle School where students studying physics are working to test and perfect the trebuchet they will use in the sixth Storm The Citadel 2016 Trebuchet Competition. The event, which has been sponsored by Google since its inception, is designed to encourage school-aged children to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Registration for the popular competition is underway and will continue until Dec. 15. Fort Johnson Middle School was among the record number of K-12 competitors in the event at The Citadel last February. The team has already designed and built their version of the medieval-style launching devices and now their teacher is incorporating the physics involved with launching eggs and other objects, into their lessons as they prepare for the 2016 competition which will be held Feb. 13. Teams from Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina have already signed up to join the more than 3,000 people from elementary, middle, and high schools, colleges, professional clubs and STEM-related businesses, who will come to the iconic Charleston campus to compete, mentor students, or to cheer on a team. Competitors spend weeks designing, building and testing their trebuchets. On competition day they will launch balls and other objects hundreds of feet to see whose device is the most powerful and the most accurate. The size of the trebuchet is determined by the team's division. There are three: Hoplite (K-5), Centurion (6-12), Centurion COM (college, organizations, military) and Barbarian (professionals/invitation only).

3b. The Citadel's 78th Christmas Candlelight Services Dec. 4 - 6
One of Charleston's longest and most memorable holiday traditions is the Christmas Candlelight Service at The Citadel's historic Summerall Chapel. The services, which are held for the community and for visitors to Charleston, feature Christmas music performed by members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. This will mark Chaplain Joel Harris' final services as he is retiring at the end of the year. Harris joined The Citadel in 2009 as the director of religious activities after serving more than 20 years on a variety of assignments for the U.S. Army. A 1972 graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, Harris' last assignment before retirement was as chief of operations for the U.S. Army Europe Chaplain. When he was selected for promotion to colonel in September 2008, he chose instead to retire and accept the opportunity to lead religious activities at The Citadel. "The Citadel's Candlelight services are always the highlight of my year," said Chaplain Harris. "After 20 years as a chaplain, I'd thought I'd seen the best possible, including our services at West Point, but all paled in comparison to the performance our Citadel cadets put on. It's been an honor to be present as our cadets and community come together to celebrate Christmas year after year in such a spectacular setting."

5a. Woodland Hills students learn about Braddock's defeat in battle
Writing about history is not "a done deal, but a process of discovery," David Preston told students at Woodland Hills High School. Mr. Preston's look into what happened before, during and after the Battle of the Monongahela took him from the Queen's Library at Windsor Castle in England to the cold waters of French Creek in northwestern Pennsylvania. His research into a battle that took place within four miles of the high school in Churchill persuaded him that the British Gen. Edward Braddock did not lose the fight on July 9, 1755. The outcome was rather that the French and their Indian allies won, he said. Mr. Preston, an associate professor of history at The Citadel, a renowned military college in Charleston, S.C., spoke to 130 Woodland Hills students about his new book, "Braddock's Defeat." His talk on Nov. 18 was part of the school district's Woodland Hills Interaction Series, which brings politicians, athletes and scholars to talk to students. The three-year-old program is coordinated by staff members Jason Coleman and Kevin McGuire. The Battle of the Monongahela, informally known as "Braddock's Defeat," took place on land now occupied by the borough of Braddock and U.S. Steel's Edgar Thomson Works. Mr. Preston's presentation included images and maps of the area, showing how it had changed over the past two and a half centuries.

5c. "Democratic Socialism" Means the Loss of Liberty
Democratic Party hopeful, Bernie Sanders, recently outlined what it means for him to be a "democratic socialist." The problem is that the same label might be applied to most of the other candidates running in both the Democratic and Republican parties running to be the nominee for presidency of the United States. One November 19, 2015, Bernie Sanders delivered a speech in which he outlined what he means when he calls himself a "democratic socialist." He assured his listeners that he did not advocate government ownership of the means of production. He said that he supported "private companies that thrive and invest and grow in America instead of shipping and jobs overseas." And that "innovation, entrepreneurship, and success should be rewarded. But greed for the sake of greed is not something that public policy should support." Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, SC.

6a. Robert Dear, Suspect in Colorado Killings, 'Preferred to Be Left Alone'
As Colorado Springs held vigils for those killed during a shooting rampage at a Planned Parenthood clinic, we are learning more about the alleged gunman and his possible motive. Police say Robert Lewis Dear, 57, killed three people and left nine wounded. A search of public records finds that Dear had several run-ins with the law. The records show nine criminal filings under his name: Two "personal intrusion" - or peeping Tom or eavesdropping - charges that were later dropped and he was acquitted of two animal cruelty charges. Dear was an independent art dealer with a degree in public administration from a Midwestern college, she said, who struck deals with artists, mostly Southern ones, who painted Charleston, S.C., street scenes, Old South plantation tableaus, magnolias and pictures of the Citadel campus. He tended to buy the rights to paintings, commission 1,000 or so prints, then market and sell the prints and keep the proceeds. He was born in Charleston and grew up in Louisville, Ky., but he had strong ties to South Carolina. His father was a graduate of The Citadel, Charleston’s famous public military college. Robert Lewis Dear Sr., the father, died in 2004. He was a Navy veteran who served in World War II and worked 40 years for the Liggett & Myers Tobacco Company.

6b. Citadel establishes scholarship to honor Charleston journalist
An athletic scholarship has been setup at The Citadel in the name of longtime journalist and author Ken Burger. The Ken Burger Athletic Memorial Scholarship will be awarded to a South Carolina student athlete. Burger addressed in one of his columns that the rosters of both local college women's teams that he covered at the time were made up of athletes from other states and countries. This scholarship would serve to recruit and encourage local talent to remain at local institutions. Though Burger graduated from the University of Georgia, Andy Solomon, a close friend says, "he admired their military tradition and spent many hours on the campus at various athletic events during his years as Executive Sports Editor for The Post and Courier." Burger passed away in October after a lengthy bout with cancer. He was 65 years old.

7a. The Citadel's Tyler Renew owes grandparents for faith, football
Tyler Renew's life story is written right there on his wrists, on the tape he wraps around them before he plays football for The Citadel. On the left wrist: "Rest in Peace, Mom" for the mother he lost to a car accident when he was 7 years old. On the right wrist: "DIGG", which stands for "Does it glorify God?" On both wrists: Jeremiah 29:11, a Bible verse that says, "'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.'" Said Renew, "My grandparents and I decided that was my life verse. It's kind of carried me through my life and any ups and downs I've ever had. I know God always has a plan for me, if I'm having a tough day, or if things are going wrong in the family or if I'm struggling in football." Renew, the Bulldogs' 5-11, 217-pound junior fullback, has had tough days. Things have gone wrong in his family. And he's struggled in football. All of which made last Saturday even sweeter. In his hometown of Columbia, Renew ran for 174 yards and two touchdowns in a 23-22 upset of South Carolina, including the game-winning TD on a 56-yard run with just 6:07 left in the game. The win gave the Bulldogs an 8-3 record and a boost heading into Saturday's FCS playoff game at Coastal Carolina.

7b. Mike Houston tabbed as SoCon coach of the year; 13 Bulldogs recognized
The Citadel football team had 13 individuals recognized by the Southern Conference's 2015 yearly awards. Head coach Mike Houston was named Coach of the Year by the media and coaches, and senior defensive lineman Mitchell Jeter was voted the coaches' Defensive Player of the Year. Jeter is the first Bulldog to earn the conference's Defensive Player of the Year honor, and Houston's Coach of the Year sweep is the second by The Citadel. Eleven other Bulldogs were voted All-Southern Conference performers by the coaches or media. Jeter, senior offensive lineman Sam Frye and sophomore defensive back Dee Delaney earned first-team honors on both ballots, and redshirt freshman Quinlan Washington was voted the coaches' first-team return specialist.

7c. Whale Branch's Delaney, HHCA's Weaver named All-SoCon for The Citadel
The Citadel football team is having a stellar season. The 18th-ranked Bulldogs, co-Southern Conference champions, are 8-3 and headed into an NCAA FCS playoff game this weekend. And on Saturday, The Citadel beat South Carolina 23-22 in Columbia, the school's first win over the FBS Gamecocks since the Bulldogs stunned them in 1990. Now two local players who played a big part in The Citadel's success this season - Whale Branch's Dee Delaney and Hilton Head Christian Academy's Kyle Weaver - have earned All-Southern Conference honors as a result of their contributions. Delaney, a sophomore defensive back, was named to the first team by the coaches and the media. He leads the Southern Conference with five interceptions and 13 passes defended. A winner of a SoCon Player of the Week award and the SoCon Player of the Month award for September, he has 41 tackles, eight pass breakups, two forced fumbles a fumble recovery and a blocked kick. Delaney's seven career interceptions are ninth on The Citadel's all-time list. Weaver, voted to the second team by the coaches and the media, has blocked all season for one of the nation's best offenses. The Bulldogs are second in the country with 344.3 rushing yards per game, and Weaver is a big reason. The Citadel is third with 37 rushing touchdowns and fourth with an average of 5.76 yards per carry. Weaver has started every game this season, a part of his 23 consecutive starts.

7d. Walterboro native in playoffs for The Citadel
The Citadel Bulldogs managed to pull off the upset of the year in the state - and probably the South Eastern Conference - by beating South Carolina 23-22 at Williams Brice Stadium before 74,000 fans. With the win, the Bulldogs from Charleston will travel to Conway to play in the first round of the playoffs against Coastal Carolina. This is quite an achievement for The Citadel, which is making the NCAA playoffs for the first time since 1992. In fact, one could argue that this has been a dream season for The Citadel. First, they were picked to finish near the bottom of the league. Then they beat Wofford for the first time in 15 years and finally capped the season off by sharing the Southern Conference title - the first since 1992 and only the third time in the school's history. Along with this magical ride, Colleton Prep graduate, Lee Riley has been a mainstay on special teams for the Bulldogs. Riley did not start the season as the number one snapper, but when the first-team snapper got hurt, Riley stepped in and has been a fixture on the team since the Wofford game. When Riley graduated from Colleton Prep, he initially enrolled at USC Beaufort, something Riley readily admits that was a mistake. "I had good grades and the school was fine. I just missed playing football," he said.

7e. Citadel Bulldogs were 'infants' then, champs now vs. Coastal Carolina
The Mike Houston era at The Citadel began on Aug. 30, 2014, with a 31-16 loss to Coastal Carolina. If a Southern Conference championship and FCS playoff berth aren't enough to show how far the Bulldogs have come since then, they get another shot at Coastal Carolina on Saturday in the first round of the FCS playoffs. The Citadel fumbled eight times, committed six penalties and botched a punt snap to hand Coastal Carolina an easy touchdown in Houston's debut last season. That's not the type of performance Houston expects in his 24th game as The Citadel's coach at 2 p.m. Saturday at Brooks Stadium in Conway. "We were infants then, and they were an established program," said Houston, whose Bulldogs are 8-3 and ranked No. 18 in the final FCS coaches regular-season poll. "Obviously, we're a different program now. We've come a long ways since then." Chants coach Joe Moglia, the former chairman of TD Ameritrade, knows full well that past performance is no indication of future winnings.

7f. Sapakoff: Senior buy-in the key to Citadel football success
Vinny Miller established momentum on the second Citadel snap Saturday. He hurried around the right side ahead of fellow running back Cam Jackson. Miller's textbook block sent South Carolina safety T.J. Gurley to the Williams-Brice Stadium turf in a heap of garnet as Jackson took off on a 59-yard touchdown run. The Bulldogs completed only two passes in their 23-22 upset of the Gamecocks, but Alex Glover's 34-yard reception was crucial. The 6-3, 227-pound Wando High School graduate stopped on a dime at midfield and soared above Chris Lammons, South Carolina's best cover cornerback, to make the grab. The drive set up Eric Goins' career-long, 48-yard field goal in the fourth quarter. When the Gamecocks got desperate, defensive end Mark Thomas was there to stop running back David Williams short on fourth-and-1 from the South Carolina 46 with 4:07 remaining. And those are just the latest leadership-by-example contributions from Citadel seniors greatly responsible for the school's first FCS playoff appearance since 1992. The eight starting seniors and others turned Mike Houston's message into action in a way that has surprised even diehard Bulldog fans.

7g. For Citadel football, it's back to playoff business
Three days after The Citadel's big day at Williams-Brice Stadium, Mitchell Jeter's phone hasn't stopped blowing up. "I'm still getting texts about that game," The Citadel's defensive tackle said Tuesday. Indeed, the last three days have been unlike any in the history of the program. On Saturday, the Bulldogs pulled off a 23-22 upset of South Carolina, eerily reminiscent of their win at Williams-Brice in 1990. On Sunday, the team learned it had been selected to the 24-team field for the FCS playoffs, The Citadel's first playoff bid since 1992. And on Tuesday, coach Mike Houston was named Southern Conference coach of the year, and Jeter became the first Citadel player to be named the coaches' defensive player of the year. It's a lot for the Bulldogs to take in. "Saturday was one of the best days in my life," Jeter said. "Just being able to prove that our team can play with any team out there, that size doesn't really matter. To be able to have that experience with my team in my senior year, that was great." As great as the last 72 hours have been for the Bulldogs, they recognize that it's time to move on to the task at hand - Saturday's first-round playoff game at Coastal Carolina. "I just kind of throw those texts to the side," Jeter said. "We've got Coastal Carolina to worry about this week." Houston, who led his Lenoir-Rhyne team to the Division II playoffs twice - and to the national title game in 2013 - said the playoffs are different, but that his 8-3 Bulldogs just need to keep doing what they've been doing.

8a. The Citadel holds off SC Upstate to win 88-81
Derrick Henry notched career-highs with 30 points and six 3-pointers and The Citadel held off a South Carolina-Upstate second-half rally to win 88-81 in the Palmetto State Shootout on Saturday. Henry made all six of his free throws, and his jumper with 1:31 left quashed SC Upstate's comeback, handing the Spartans their seventh straight loss. Quinton Marshall scored a career-high 22 points, Zane Najdawi added 11, and P.J. Boutte grabbed a career-high 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs (5-2), who made 16 of 43 3-pointers. Connor Schroeder tied it at 14 with a 3-pointer, Henry hit back-to-back 3s and The Citadel traded baskets and the lead until Henry's back-to-back 3s with 1:49 left helped the Bulldogs to a 45-41 halftime lead.

8b. Bulldogs Down Georgia Southern 95-90
The Citadel basketball team downed Georgia Southern 95-90 to open up play at the Palmetto State Shootout on Wednesday night. The Bulldogs (3-2) hit 18 three-pointers and shot 50.8 percent from the field set up by 26 total assists in the win. Senior Derrick Henry led five players in double digits with 18 points. The senior has scored in double figures in all five games to start the 2015-16 campaign. Warren Sledge added 17 clutch points behind five three-pointers and Quinton Marshall recorded 13 points, nine rebounds and a career-high six assists in a solid all-around performance. Senior point guard P.J. Boutte collected his second career double-double and second of the season with 10 points and 10 assists. His 38 dimes this season is the highest total among all Southern Conference players. Freshman Matt Frierson also played eight crucial minutes, drilling three treys to help fuel the Bulldogs when they needed to swing the momentum. With The Citadel trailing 17-12 at the 11:52 mark of the first half, Frierson unselfishly threw an extra pass to Henry for a much-needed three-pointer. The play sparked a 19-3 Bulldogs run that surged head coach Duggar Baucom's team ahead 31-20. The Citadel made six three-pointers during the game-altering run, including one from Frierson. Georgia Southern managed to battle back and close the gap to 48-47 at halftime and the final 20 minutes featured a frenetic, seesaw finish. Neither team led by more than six down the stretch as both squads traded tough buckets.

8c. The Citadel basketball Adds Johnson to 2016 Class
The Citadel head basketball coach Duggar Baucom and his staff announced the addition of point guard Frankie Johnson to the 2016 class on Tuesday. Johnson, a Darlington, South Carolina, native, signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Bulldogs next season. "We are thrilled to have Frankie join our basketball family," Coach Baucom said. "He is the perfect fit as the engine for our up-tempo attack. He combines tremendous quickness with football-mentality toughness." Johnson is a 5-foot-7 speedster with the ability to fill the void left behind by graduate senior P.J. Boutte and help carry the load in the backcourt in 2016-17. He is a two-sport star at Darlington High School, coupling quarterback duties for the football team with four years of varsity basketball experience. On the court, the Falcons have won 20 or more games in every season with Johnson as the starting point guard. Johnson propelled his team to the 2014 Class 3A state title game and 2015 Lower State final. He has earned Region 6-3A Player of the Year honors two years in a row and All-State recognition twice. During his junior campaign, he averaged 19.5 points, 6.3 assists, 4.6 rebounds and 4.0 steals per game as he captained the Falcons to another successful season. On the gridiron, Johnson flexed his athletic versatility, passing for 1,436 passing yards while rushing for 1,138 yards in his career. He has proven his ability to not only lead as a quarterback and point guard, but also in the classroom. Johnson attends Mayo High School for Math, Science & Technology academically. He is on the All-A's Honor Roll there and a member of the National English Honors Society.

1. Ride the wave with the Bulldogs to the FCS Playoffs
The Citadel Bulldogs are the 2015 Southern Conference co-champions and will appear in the playoffs Saturday, Nov. 28 at Coastal Carolina. It's only the fourth time the Bulldogs have made it to the playoffs, so the college thought it was fitting to show Lt. Gen. Rosa riding the wave in style! The Bulldogs also made the playoff bracket in 1988, 1990 and 1992. This year's team earned the program's third Southern Conference championship and first since 1992, tying the school record with six conference wins. The Bulldogs enter the playoffs with an 8-3 overall record, tied for the second-highest single-season win total in Citadel history, after finishing the regular season with a 23-22 win at South Carolina. The Citadel, ranked 18th in the final FCS STATS poll, will travel to Conway, South Carolina, to face Coastal Carolina on Saturday, Nov. 28. The game is set to start at 2 p.m. and will be broadcast on ESPN3 and the WatchESPN app. Coastal Carolina is tied for 10th in the final FCS STATS poll and enters the postseason 9-2. The Bulldogs and Chanticleers have met once, opening the 2014 season inside Johnson Hagood Stadium.

2. Crying Gamecocks fan uses fame for a good cause
A nine-second video of USC student Tripp Harmon captured what it meant to be a Gamecock Saturday following the team's 23-22 loss to The Citadel. The brief clip shows Harmon, clad in garnet and black, moved to tears by the upset, asking, "How did we lose to The Citadel?" Since the video was posted Saturday evening, it has made the rounds online, receiving 1,570 retweets and more than 1,380 likes on Twitter. Harmon, a junior at USC and Charleston native, says the video's popularity came as a bit of a shock, but he's trying to make the best of the situation. "At first, I was worried when I saw all these retweets just keep going up and up. I was like, 'Oh God, I don't want people to actually think I'm a wimp or anything,'" says Harmon. "Then I realized it wasn't going to stop, and I just started to go along with it. I like to keep a positive attitude about everything, so that's what I'm trying to do now." According to Harmon, he was tailgating when his friend began filming, and the video shows his reaction just seconds after he learned of The Citadel's victory.

3. Charleston Southern's Chadwell, Citadel's Houston finalists for FCS coach of year
Charleston Southern's Jamey Chadwell and The Citadel's Mike Houston have led their football teams to historic seasons, and both are finalists for the STATS FCS national coach of the year award. The winner will be honored at the STATS FCS awards banquet set for Jan. 8 in Frisco, Texas, on the eve of the FCS championship game. Chadwell's 9-2 Buccaneers have lost this season only to two FBS opponents, going 9-0 against FCS competition to win the Big South Conference title. CSU is a No. 8 seed and earned a first-round bye in the FCS playoffs, and will host the Citadel-Coastal Carolina winner in the second round on Dec. 5. Houston, in his second season at The Citadel, took a team picked to finish seventh in the Southern Conference to an 8-3 record and a share of the SoCon title. The Bulldogs earned their first playoff berth since 1992 and are at Coastal Carolina at 2 p.m. Saturday in the first round.

4. The Citadel's Renew Named SoCon Offensive Player Of The Week
The Citadel B-Back Tyler Renew has been named the Southern Conference Offensive Player of the Week, it was announced Monday. Renew rushed for a career-high 174 yards and a career-high two touchdowns in The Citadel's 23-22 win at South Carolina. The Columbia, South Carolina, native broke through the middle for a 56-yard touchdown run that was the eventual game-winning score with 6:07 remaining in the fourth quarter. His 174 yards were the most by a Bulldog since Aaron Miller rushed for 197 yards against Charlotte last season. Renew's rushing total was the most allowed in Williams-Brice Stadium by the Gamecocks since 2006, when Arkansas' Darren McFadden, the Doak Walker Award winner that season, rushed for 219 yards, and was more than South Carolina has allowed to five different teams this season. Renew produced his second straight 100-yard rushing game and third 100-yard rushing performance in the last four games. The Citadel, co-champions of the Southern Conference and ranked 18th in the final regular season FCS STATS poll released Sunday, advanced to the NCAA playoffs for the fourth time in program history and first time since 1992. The Bulldogs travel to face Coastal Carolina on Saturday at 2 p.m. in a game available on ESPN3 and via the WatchESPN app.

5. Top-10 performances by local college football players from the weekend of Nov. 21
Russell Hubbs, The Citadel-The Citadel pulled off a 23-22 upset win over South Carolina Saturday, and Hubbs, the former Northwestern Trojan, made a pair of tackles in some of his first significant action of the season. Both stops were tackles-for-loss, and he also had a quarterback hurry. Hubbs took down Brandon Wilds for a 1-yard loss near the end of the first quarter, then dropped David Williams for a 3-yard loss that forced a punt in the third period.

6. How about those Bulldogs?
Many college football commentators and fans regularly criticize big-time programs for scheduling small-time teams. But what appeared to be one of those typical mismatches when the season began looked very different Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. Final score: The Citadel 23, South Carolina 22. It was a dramatic rerun of sorts from a quarter century ago, when the Bulldogs upset the Gamecocks, 38-35. The preseason media and coaches' polls picked The Citadel to finish seventh in the eight-team Southern Conference. Instead, the Bulldogs are league co-champions under Mike Houston, who was named Monday as a finalist for national Football Championship Series coach of the year. The Gamecocks entered the season coming off their fourth straight bowl victory. But there will be no bowl this season for USC, unless you count Saturday's "Palmetto Bowl" against Clemson in Columbia.

7. Though embarrassing, South Carolina's loss to The Citadel won't affect much else
The above statement is a tad deceiving, since South Carolina and The Citadel only squared off once from 1991 to 2014; and with Saturday's upset perhaps trumping the 1990 shocker in Columbia, S.C., who knows if the Gamecocks will be in a rush to schedule another in-state military institution over the next quarter-century. Citing the big picture, losing to The Citadel shouldn't have a traumatizing effect on the Gamecocks program. This woebegone season (3-8 overall, 1-7 SEC) began unraveling soon after South Carolina's blowout loss to UGA in September, and things got really shaky after Steve Spurrier's abrupt resignation in October. As such, one under-the-radar defeat in November has little consequence, long term. Of course, Saturday's defeat won't look good on interim coach Shawn Elliot's resume. He needed every break to fall his way to make the Gamecocks job permanent, which hasn't been the case; and now, South Carolina's powers-that-be have additional incentive to seek out a prominent figure after the season ends. Houston's Tom Herman? Memphis' Justin Fuente? Utah's Kyle Whittingham? Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy? Cal's Sonny Dykes? It's an impressive list of up-and-coming or established candidates for the South Carolina vacancy. And just like Shawn Elliott, every coach listed above lost on Saturday.

8. Tale of the Tape: Skai Moore an observer; Brandon Shell a receiver
In the early going Saturday afternoon, it became clear linebacker Skai Moore, the brightest spot of South Carolina's struggling defense, was not a big part of the game plan. During the game, word got out he missed practice during the week for a family funeral. Even a week of practice is often not enough to prepare for a triple-option offense, and it would logically follow that someone with less preparation would be far less useful. Only in the middle of the game, Moore's lack of preparation ceased to be a barrier to getting on the field. Going out for the final series of the first half, The Citadel was set to either run out the clock or have to throw, playing to Moore's strength in coverage. But then he was in the second series of the second half, gone for two more and back for the last two. He finished with three tackles. A close look of the game video didn't show many true breakdowns on his part. He helped stuff one option play, got cut blocked a couple times and didn't have any big miscues. He was on the field in the late going, when Columbia's own Tyler Renew took advantage of a USC defense overloading the line and getting pulled out of position by the option to rumble 50-plus yards for the game-deciding score. The Gamecocks countered the Bulldogs' three-back attack by playing three linebackers more than they have all season. Bryson Allen-Williams was in for Moore, and Jonathan Walton saw more time.

1a. The Citadel shocks South Carolina with late rally, pulls road upset
A rough season got worse on Saturday for South Carolina as it was upset by The Citadel 23-22 on Saturday at Williams-Brice Stadium. Here's the rundown: What the win means for The Citadel: This is a huge win for coach Mike Houston and the Bulldogs. Not only is it a win against an SEC team, the Bulldogs (8-3) are now hunting for a spot in the FCS playoffs via an at-large bid. This win will certainly help their case, going on the road to beat South Carolina. The Citadel had lost 27 straight games vs. FBS opponents, according to ESPN Stats & Info. It was the Bulldogs' first win against South Carolina since 1990. What the loss means for South Carolina: The Gamecocks (3-8) didn't have anything tangible to play for - they can't reach bowl eligibility - but this loss is embarrassing for them. It's been a rough year, made even worse by losing to an FCS team at home. The defense struggled, the offense couldn't find the end zone enough, and it was just an all-around bad day for the Gamecocks. Certainly, interim coach Shawn Elliott didn't envision this when he took over for Steve Spurrier, who resigned earlier this season.

2. Mayor Joe Riley won't slow down until he passes the baton to Tecklenburg
Last January, Charleston Mayor Joe Riley laid out some goals for his final year in office - an ambitious agenda that he admitted could extend beyond his time in City Hall. Among his goals were continuing his fundraising efforts for the International African American Museum, bringing more development to West Ashley, completing the Gaillard Center, developing a plan for the city's burgeoning entertainment districts, and pushing for the completion of Interstate 526. On Friday - just days removed from a runoff election won by businessman John Tecklenburg over state Rep. Leon Stavrinakis - Mayor Riley said he had accomplished many things during his four decades at the city's helm. But some things seem certain to be left undone - projects and priorities he will pass along to Tecklenburg. "I'm busy at this moment," Riley said Friday. "I'll always be busy." In the next several weeks, Riley will focus on preparing the city's 2016 budget, daily city matters, and meeting with Tecklenburg about the transition, among other things. Riley described his waning weeks by using the metaphor of a relay race. He's running at a full stride now, he said, and on Jan. 11, he'll pass the baton to Tecklenburg. In that January interview with The Post and Courier, no one had any idea what a tumultuous year 2015 would be. Riley will tell you that the low point of his four decades in City Hall came on June 17, when a white supremacist walked into a Bible study at the Emanuel AME Church and shot and killed nine people. But there are many high points, Riley said, including the openings of Waterfront Park, Charleston Place, the South Carolina Aquarium and Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park.

3a. Citadel cadets present MUSC $8,500 check for breast cancer support
Cadets for a Cure at The Citadel present Kiki Cooper (front left), MUSC Hollings Cancer Center Director of Special Events, with a donation of $8,500. The cadets are members of The Citadel Pre-Health Society, which prepares cadets for medical, dental, or other health-related advanced studies and professions. Led by Cadet Matt Scalise (back, left), President of the society, the cadets spent months raising the funds which included freshman movie nights, the Race for the Cure. The local chapter of the Komen Foundation produced a special video called "What happens when cadets take over the Race for the Cure." From set- up to 'racing' to break-down, 70 cadets assisted with the race held October 17 on Daniel Island near Charleston. "This semester members of the Citadel Pre-Health Society and their friends gave up much of their precious free time to work for the benefit of breast cancer patients with financial need," said Dr. Kathy Zanin, professor, The Citadel Department of Biology. "They raised money by selling raffle tickets and t-shirts. They woke up at zero-dark-thirty on a Saturday to volunteer at the Race for the Cure. Witnessing the leadership of Matt Scalise during the Cadets for a Cure Campaign has been a great honor for me. Seeing so many Citadel students join forces with Matt to impact the Citadel community, the Komen Foundation, and Hollings Cancer Center has made me very proud. They now understand the true meaning of leadership through service learning, and the joy that can come from helping others."

4a. Bush calls for US ground forces to fight Islamic State
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush on Wednesday called for the U.S. to send more troops to the Middle East to fight the Islamic State. "This is the war of our time," Bush said at the Citadel five days after Islamic State militants attacked Paris and killed 129 people. "The United States, in conjunction with our NATO allies and more Arab partners, will need to increase our presence on the ground," he added. He offered no specifics, but said the number of Americans sent to the region should be, "in line with what our military generals recommend - not politicians - will be necessary to achieve our objective." The speech came as European nations hunted for conspirators in the attack and amid a fierce political debate within the U.S. over whether to limit or halt the resettlement of refugees surging fleeing war-ravaged Syria. Bush, the brother and son of presidents, projecting himself as a potential commander in chief able to handle such challenges, as his own presidential bid tries to gain traction in a primary campaign likely to be shaken up after the Paris attacks. "The brutal savagery is a reminder of what is at stake in this election," Bush said. "We are choosing the leader of the free world. And if these attacks remind us of anything, it's that we are living in serious times that require serious leadership." The speech, which had been scheduled before Friday's deadly attacks, initially was to be more focused on Pentagon policy and equipment procurement reform. But the attacks prompted a quick shift in focus. Bush hinted at the themes while campaigning Tuesday in South Carolina, where many Republican primary voters are retired and active-duty military, and where support runs high for the U.S. armed forces.

4b. S.C. Medal of Honor recipient takes jab at Obama in new Bush ad
Retired Marine Maj. Gen. James Livingston of Mount Pleasant is one of four Medal of Honor recipients appearing in a new Jeb Bush for president video that ridicules President Barack Obama as commander in chief. "This is no reality show. This is serious business. This is about the livelihood of our kids and grandkids. This commander in chief requires training wheels," Livingston says in the video as the image transitions to a photograph of Obama in the Oval Office. The two-minute video, dubbed "Ready," is slated to run as a digital buy in the early primary states, including South Carolina. Livingston and the others all praise Bush's national security experience and leadership. The ad was released shortly after Bush visited Charleston on Wednesday and delivered a speech at The Citadel in which he said U.S. troops will be needed to defeat ISIS. In an address to about 400 cadets, Bush outlined his view of dealing with world terror threats like ISIS, the rebuilding of the Pentagon budget and taking on defense weaknesses such as responses to hacking. Livingston, who was awarded the highest medal for valor in combat during he Vietnam War, has been a longtime Bush supporter. At the Citadel, Bush called for increasing the numbers of men and women in uniform, including boosting active-duty Marine Corps strength to 186,000.

5. Thanksgiving: Celebrating the Birth of American Free Enterprise
This time of the year, whether in good economic times or bad, is when Americans gather with their families and friends and enjoy a Thanksgiving meal together. It marks a remembrance of those early Pilgrim Fathers who crossed the uncharted ocean from Europe to make a new start in Plymouth, Massachusetts. What is less appreciated is that Thanksgiving also is a celebration of the birth of free enterprise in America. The English Puritans, who left Great Britain and sailed across the Atlantic on the Mayflower in 1620, were not only escaping from religious persecution in their homeland. They also wanted to turn their back on what they viewed as the materialistic and greedy corruption of the Old World. Plymouth Colony Planned as Collectivist Utopia: In the New World, they wanted to erect a New Jerusalem that would not only be religiously devout, but be built on a new foundation of communal sharing and social altruism. Their goal was the communism of Plato's "Republic," in which all would work and share in common, knowing neither private property nor self-interested acquisitiveness. What resulted is recorded in the diary of Governor William Bradford, the head of the colony. The colonists collectively cleared and worked the land, but they brought forth neither the bountiful harvest they hoped for, nor did it create a spirit of shared and cheerful brotherhood. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, SC.

7. Citadel football built for playoffs, Mike Houston says
Mike Houston led his Lenoir-Rhyne football team to the Division II playoffs a couple of times, including a run to the national championship game in 2013. He knows what a playoff-ready team looks like, and says he has one at The Citadel. "This team is built for a postseason run," said Houston, whose 8-3 Bulldogs will open the 24-team FCS playoffs at Coastal Carolina at 2 p.m. Saturday. "We're a sturdy, hard-nosed defense and a very physical, downhill running game that is difficult to get ready for in a week's time. "We have the potential to make a run in the postseason. But we've got to focus on the game ahead of us." Fresh off a 23-22 upset of South Carolina on Saturday, the Bulldogs earned their first FCS playoff berth since 1992 during Sunday's selection show on ESPNU. If they can beat Coastal Carolina (9-2), the Bulldogs are in line for a rematch with Charleston Southern (9-2), which earned a No. 8 seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs.

Ed Drew scored 26 points and had six rebounds as Presbyterian beat The Citadel 95-79 Saturday night. Reggie Dillard had 16 points and Markus Terry added 13 for Presbyterian (3-1). Drew made 10 of 13 attempts as the Blue Hose shot nearly 60 percent from the field. The Citadel (2-2) was led by Brian White, who scored 18 points, while Derrick Henry and P.J. Boutte added 14. Presbyterian owned a 50-42 lead at the half after having leads of 20-8, 24-13 and 50-37. White hit a 3-pointer to cut the deficit to eight points with 35 seconds left before half. Henry's layup with 13:05 remaining brought the Bulldogs within three at 61-58, but a Drew layup and back-to-back 3s from Dillard and Darius Moore extended the margin to 69-58 and The Citadel would come no closer.

9. The Citadel Volleyball Signs Four for 2016
The Citadel volleyball coach Craig Mosqueda announced the signings of four future cadet-athletes on Thursday. Sarah Dobrich, Autumn Bennett and Jenifer Barbot all inked National Letters of Intent to play for the Bulldogs in 2016. Recruited student-athlete Caricia Rodriguez also committed to be a preferred walk-on, rounding out a solid class for Coach Mosqueda's squad. "Our staff wanted to find driven young ladies who understand that when they graduate from The Citadel, they are going to be ahead of graduates earning the same degree." Coach Mosqueda said. "We wanted them to understand the importance of the Band of Gold program and our alumni network." Coach Mosqueda's staff hoped to bring in fresh faces with length and athleticism to help the Bulldogs control the net and improve the team's ball-handling. The staff believes it has successfully taken strides toward that goal with the early signees. Dobrich is a middle-hitter from Mokena, Illinois, who led Lincoln Way East High School to a 2014 IHSA Regional Championship. Dobrich racked up more than 140 kills in each of the past three seasons and added 101 blocks, 56 digs and 17 aces as a senior. This past season, she served as a team captain and earned all-conference honors as well as Lincoln Way East's annual Most Valuable Player award.

1a. Jeb Bush outlines military policy: 'We can't withdraw from this threat'
Seeking a moment to catapult his candidacy to the forefront of the Republican field, Jeb Bush on Wednesday delivered a major address on defense policy at a time when the world is grappling with devastating terror threats and attacks. The former Florida governor has routinely accused the Obama administration of tearing down the military through budget cuts that he says have weakened the country's standing in the global balance of power. And he continued that criticism of the President and Hillary Clinton in a speech at The Citadel military college in Charleston, South Carolina, where Bush offered a four-pronged plan to build up the military, and, as he sees it, take back the mantle as the world's leader, with the Paris attacks as a backdrop. "Radical Islamic terrorists have declared war on the western world. Their aim is our total destruction. We can't withdraw from this threat, nor negotiate with it," Bush said. "We have but one choice: to defeat it."

2a. Pat Conroy exhibit on display at USC library
Fans of renowned South Carolina author Pat Conroy have an opporunity to learn more about his personal life and influences for his writing at a new exhibit unveiled this week at the University of South Carolina. Conroy, who turned 70 last month, is a New York Times best selling author with several movies based on his books. The "Pat Conroy: A Retrospective" exhibit, is on display through the end of March in Hollings Library's Irvin Department Gallery, which is typically open 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The exhibit is free and open the public. Archivist Jessica Crouch curated the exhibit and listed and has categorized all the items since the library received them in May 2014. Materials from Conroy will continue to come to the libraries as long as he continues to write. The exhibits include a large poster used to promote Conroy's first novel "The Great Santini," and 14 display cases filled with photographs, manuscripts, first-edition books, screenplays, scrapbooks, correspondence, posters, book art and illustrations. Some cases are dedicated to Conroy's experiences in South Carolina that influenced his work, such as his time as a cadet at The Citadel, his time teaching on Daufuskie Island and his time living in Beaufort.

2b. SCPA gives Ed and Ann Duskin big send-off to mark his retirement
This year's Southern Crop Production Association annual meeting in Charleston, S.C., will be one of the more memorable ones for members and guests of the group that represents crop protection product manufacturers and distributors in the Southeast. The meeting was the last one organized by Ed Duskin, the retired U.S. Army colonel, who is stepping down from his position as executive vice president of the Southern Crop Production Association after 42 years of service. "The Colonel," as he has been known for most of his time with SCPA, and his wife, Ann, were sent off by a number of former association presidents; staff members of CropLife America and Mid-America CropLife Association, the national and Midwest organizations representing the industry; and other well-wishers. Trish Donaldson, the executive assistant for the SCPA for the past 21 years, is also retiring from the organization in January and was honored for her years of service. Here are photos from this year's annual meeting, which, coincidentally, was held in Charleston, the home city of The Citadel, where Ed Duskin graduated at the age of 18 before embarking on a career in the U.S. Army, which took him to Vietnam and Laos.

3. Letter: Leave the flag at The Citadel
Once again the war of political correctness against the facts of history has reared its head at The Citadel (Nov. 14: "Many Citadel alumni urge flag's removal.") At the present time, the Confederate Naval Jack can be found in only one place on The Citadel campus. It hangs in a quiet and inconspicuous corner of Summerall Chapel, at the very end of a row of flags of the states that today make up our union. Now some alumni have pressured a majority of the school's Board of Visitors to remove the banner. One of these alumni is quoted as declaring that the chapel is no place for the flag. But he is profoundly wrong. The chapel is a memorial to The Citadel cadets and alumni who fought and died in America's wars - all of them. In all our wars but one, those brave Citadel men served under the flag of the United States, a banner properly and conspicuously displayed in the chapel and throughout the campus. But in one of those wars, Citadel men served - and died - under another flag, the battle flag of the Confederacy. That is the flag which, in its rectangular version, hangs modestly in the corner of the chapel.

4. The Shards of Heaven: Successful debut of Roman-Era historical fantasy mash-up
The Shards of Heaven is not author Michael Livingston's first work. In fact, he's already a prolific award-winning writer, though mostly focused in his world of academia. Livingston is a Professor of Medieval Literature at The Citadel in South Carolina. The Shards of Heaven is his first novel and he taps into his significant historical knowledge. He liberally expands his knowledge base with strong fantasy elements, though, not unlike George R.R. Martin's A SONG OF ICE AND FIRE, it's heavy on history-laden fiction and lighter on the fantasy... at least in this first offering of what's expected to be a trilogy. Impending war bubbles across the Roman Empire as Livingston's story starts. Julius Caesar has been assassinated and after failed attempts at co-ruling the empire, Caesar's general Marc Antony and his adopted son Octavian jockey for position, allies, and support within their strongholds in the east and west: Antony in Alexandria, Egypt, and Octavian in Rome. Octavian comes into the knowledge and possession of a mighty weapon - the Trident of Neptune. Only Octavian's adopted-step-brother Juba can even moderately control it, and while Octavian has designs to use it to secure his victory over Antony, Juba has his own eye on avenging his father's defeat at the hands of Caesar 15 years earlier. The Trident has Force-like powers in its ability to boil a human's blood or create a ship-crushing wave in the sea.

5. Najdawi key as The Citadel beats Stetson 94-93
Zane Najdawi scored 22 points and Derrick Henry had 21, including two free throws with 10 seconds left, and The Citadel edged Stetson 94-93 on Tuesday night. After Henry's free throws, Najdawi blocked Cameron Harvey's layup attempt with five seconds left and Warren Sledge grabbed the rebound for the Bulldogs to secure the win. Brian White added 15 points and P.J. Boutte had 13 with nine assists for The Citadel (1-1), which shot 59 percent for the game and made 16 of 18 free throws. Divine Myles had 22 points for Stetson (0-2), which shot 56 percent. Brian Pegg added 15 points with 13 rebounds, Derick Newton had 14 points and Luke Doyle 13. The Hatters, who got 30 points off the bench and were 9 of 12 from the line, had a 10-point lead midway through the second half. The Citadel recovered to lead by seven with four minutes left.

6a. With USC left to play, Citadel confident in playoff resume
A Southern Conference title in hand and their playoff future on hold until Sunday, The Citadel Bulldogs figure now is as good a time as any to play South Carolina. "It's a challenge no matter when you play (the Gamecocks)," said Citadel coach Mike Houston, whose 7-3 team is ranked No. 24 in the FCS coaches poll and has clinched a share of the SoCon championship along with Chattanooga. "You're playing a (Power Five) opponent and one that's so well-funded. Their resources are enormous, so you are going up against a tough test, no matter when you play them. "Right now is as good a time as any to play them. We've finished the SoCon slate and put that to bed. We won't know anything about the playoffs until Sunday, so that allows us to focus only on South Carolina. It's a great opportunity, one that I feel like we are more prepared for than when we went to Florida State last year."

6b. Sapakoff: Ted Wingard's glory and the 1965 Gamecocks-Citadel game in Charleston
The record-crowd of 20,111 at Johnson Hagood Stadium that Saturday night 50 football seasons ago was almost evenly divided. Not taking political risk, Gov. Robert McNair sat on the Citadel side for the first half and the South Carolina side for the second. "No one could recall any larger gathering in a single place for any purpose in Charleston," wrote Warren Koon, The Post and Courier's Executive Sports Editor. The 13-3 victory on Sept. 18, 1965, was a good start to a controversial Atlantic Coast Conference season for South Carolina and a missed opportunity for The Citadel. Bulldog fans would have to wait 25 years for the 38-35 upset in Columbia in 1990. The Citadel gets another shot at shocking the Gamecocks on Saturday. But South Carolina's 1965 appearance in Charleston was its first in 15 years, and last.

6c. Everette Sands believes The Citadel expects to beat USC
South Carolina running backs coach Everette Sands played for The Citadel team in 1990 that upset the Gamecocks at Williams-Brice Stadium. He said USC's current team has been warned that it better be ready to play on Saturday. "These Citadel guys, they've got a little bit of swagger about them. They've had a really good year and won a share of the Southern Conference Championship. And they're going to come here, and I expect them to play to win," Sands said. "That was one of the things we talked about earlier this week. One thing coach Elliott said right off the bat is, 'Hey, 25 years ago, The Citadel came here and won.'" The triple option has given Carolina's defense fits in the past, and the Bulldogs run it well. The Citadel is expected to try to control the clock in an effort to make Saturday's game a four-quarter game. "These guys, especially with this type of offense, it keeps you honest," Sands said. "It keeps them in games. And it's going to be a dogfight. We've got to be ready to roll." While Sands said he still bleeds Citadel blue, it won't be hard for him to get motivated to beat his alma mater.

6d. Against The Citadel, Gamecocks' Skai Moore aiming for 100 - but not in points
It doesn't carry the cachet of a 1,000-yard season by a running back. Some see it as a benchmark, others as a meaningless statistic. Regardless, it remains something that hasn't been done at South Carolina in nearly a decade. Linebacker Skai Moore enters Saturday's game against The Citadel with 95 tackles, and in position to become the first Gamecocks player to go over the 100-tackle mark in a single campaign since Jasper Brinkley did it in 2006. With two games remaining, Moore could finish with the most tackles by a USC player since Jonathan Martin amassed 122 in 2002. "If you're a lineman or linebacker, you put that number out there," said USC interim coach Shawn Elliott, who played defensive end in college. "It's so hard to get to these days with the spread offenses and ball running from sideline to sideline. I think it's certainly a credit to his football play and what type of athlete he is, that can cover the field and do the things he does in pass coverage. He makes plays all over the place. ...He's done a tremendous job, and it's a huge benchmark for him."

6e. Elliott wary of defending funky Citadel offensive scheme
Although The Citadel is a small-school opponent, South Carolina needs to be cognizant of the problems the Bulldogs' offense could pose. The Citadel runs the triple-option -- and quite well from a statistical standpoint. At 7-3 overall this year, the Bulldogs average 343.7 yards a game on the ground. This pseudo-form of deception and unconventionality could make it difficult to defend against -- primarily because it isn't seen very often in today's spread-driven world. The offense could also help to mask obvious deficiencies up front from a depth and talent standpoint, as well as help the Bulldogs to control the clock.

Jeb Bush will talk about his military strategy - including his views on the response to the Islamist raid in Paris - at The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. Bush previewed his talk in an interview with "FOX & Friends" today in which he called for a military buildup as well as taking in some Syrian refugees, with an emphasis on persecuted Christians subject to "incredible screening." Bush also told CBS News that more U.S. ground forces would be needed in the region, but declined to speculate on specific numbers.

2. From one cadet to another: a day in the life of the Regimental Commander of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets
Senior year often brings new leadership opportunities for cadets at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. It is one of the most prestigious and historic military colleges in the nation. This year, Jimmy Urban, who is from Randolph, New Jersey, finds himself at the apex of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets as regimental commander. Urban was chosen for this position from amongst his peers while still a junior, following a rigorous selection process by the college's leadership. Urban, who is attending the college on a Navy contract and is also a member of the track and field team, is now responsible for commanding approximately 2,300 cadets. He directs all members of the Corps in their development as principled leaders based on the four pillars of The Citadel which include the academic, military, moral/ethical, and physical pillars. The following is a conversation between Urban (JU), and The Citadel Regimental Public Affairs Officer, Brianna Young (BY), who is also a senior.

3. 10 Best Public Colleges for Out-of-Staters
For students looking to venture farther from home during their college years, an out-of-state public college could be a perfect fit. Major state universities tend to have strong national alumni networks, top-notch sports programs, and wide-ranging academic offerings. Plus, many are actively recruiting more out-of-state students, who pay a higher tuition rate than in-state residents. Unfortunately, many nationally known flagship state universities are notoriously hard to get into for out-of-staters. (We're looking at you, University of Texas-Austin and University of Florida.) But on average, the public colleges in MONEY's 2015 Best Colleges ranking enrolled about 18 percent of their student body from beyond their state borders. At most of the colleges on this list, out-of-state enrollment is more than double that. No. 6: The Citadel in Charleston, S.C.

5. Citadel triple option challenges USC defense
When Ellis Johnson was South Carolina's defensive coordinator a few years ago, he despised facing triple-option offensive teams because defending the scheme requires an entirely different approach from the spread or pro-style offenses typically run by most SEC schools. USC interim head coach Shawn Elliott understands the anxiety of defensive coaches preparing to face the triple option because he cut his coaching teeth at Appalachian State, which rose to national championship prominence by running the triple option and speed option with machine-precision in the 1990s and 2000s. This week, the Gamecocks get a taste of the triple option when The Citadel (7-3 overall) visits Williams-Brice Stadium at noon for USC's final regular season game before the annual late November Palmetto Bowl showdown with rival Clemson. The Bulldogs, who suffered their first Southern Conference loss Saturday to Chattanooga, are one of the top rushing teams in the country, averaging 59.7 rushing attempts (597 in 10 games) and 343.7 yards per game on the ground.

1a. Charleston Mayor, Champion for Integration, Prepares to Bow Out
Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. sat behind the big desk in his formal and stately City Hall office here, with a photo of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on one wall and a portrait of Gen. Robert E. Lee staring down from another. It was one of the last days before Mr. Riley planned to retire after 40 years in office, a remarkable tenure that has made his narrow, bespectacled face and professorial mien as much a fixture of this Southern city as any of its storied church steeples. He had been asked to reflect on his most horrific day on the job: June 17, when a white gunman, apparently motivated by racial hatred, massacred nine black churchgoers here... Upon retirement, Mr. Riley plans to return to The Citadel, the Charleston military academy from which he graduated in 1964, where a chair in American government and public policy has been established in his honor. Mr. Riley has also been named the building chairman of the International African American Museum, his last grand, and as yet unrealized, vision for his city. As much as 60 percent of the Africans brought to America during the slave trade era entered through South Carolina Lowcountry ports, and Mr. Riley said it was the city's "duty" to present their largely untold stories to the world. "I won't rest," he said, "until that's built."

1b. Charleston's mayoral candidates preparing final burst
Charleston's mayoral campaigns are gearing up for their final three-day burst before city voters go to the polls. Businessman and mayoral hopeful John Tecklenburg launched his citywide tour of neighborhoods Friday in the playground next to the vacant Sergeant Jasper apartment building, and finished the day with an appearance with a live jazz show at the How Art Thou Cafe, Juice & Wine Bar on James Island. His opponent, state Rep. Leon Stavrinakis, spent the day Friday doing several media interviews, speaking to The Citadel Republican Society and attending the St. Johns High School playoff football game, said campaign spokesman Tyler Jones. One looming question is whether the candidates will meet again face to face. Two television stations have extended invitations to the candidates to appear together before the election Tuesday, but it's unclear if the candidates can agree on a day and time. Jones said Stavrinakis is ready to debate. "We're still waiting for Mr. Tecklenburg to accept the two televised debate invitations we have received for Monday," he said. "Leon has accepted and hopes John reconsiders his decision not to discuss the critical issues facing Charlestonians."

John Kasich's campaign announced at 10:15 p.m. last night that he'll "present his strategy for keeping America safe" in a noon speech on Tuesday at the National Press Club. The Bush campaign advised at 6 p.m. last night that Jeb "will speak about rebuilding our country's military" at The Citadel in Charleston on Wednesday at noon. Bush spokeswoman Allie Brandenburger said the speech was previously scheduled, but that originally they planned to use it as a peg for rolling out a plan on rebuilding the military. Now, she says, Bush will "address the attacks in Paris, the path forward in our war against ISIS and radical Islamic terrorism, and how we need to rebuild our military to address these threats."

A Lynchburg man is a finalist for a national volunteering award. Nolan Moore graduated from the Citadel in 2014 and is currently serving at Fort Campbell as a field artillery officer. He has spent the last several years volunteering in Sri Lanka, Thailand, Guatemala, Guam and the Philippines with the International Volunteer Headquarters. "It's important to give back, that has been something instilled in me since I was a child," he tells WIS. "Being active and involved in my local and international community is important to me. As a leader, it's our responsibility to understand the world that we live in, moreover I want to be a person that influences positive change in the world." Moore recently returned from deployment in the Republic of Korea. He's currently stationed with the 101st Airborne Division -- Air Assault. "I have hopes of becoming involved in foreign affairs and international law weather that becoming a Judge Advocate General or working in the State Department," he says. "I want to be able to see every part of this great world that we live in. Ultimately, I want to be able to help others locally and internationally as a full time job."

3b. Patriots Point teamed with The Citadel ROTC Units for training
Patriots Point teamed up with The Citadel ROTC program to give its cadets a first time opportunity for training sessions on the USS Yorktown. Navy and Marine ROTC Units got in on the action that's preparing them for their future. "At the Citadel you're not really on a ship we're in the barracks so it feels good to be as the navy unit on the ship," says freshman, Bryce Anderson who is a part of The Citadel's ROTC Navy Unit. He along with other cadets participated in simulation exercises on the ship. "We were able to put together a program that gave the folks, that are going to be commissioned soon and go out to the fleet whether their marines or navy, some great experience utilizing our assets," says head of the Flight Academy on the USS Yorktown, Lincoln Demoura. Demoura say it's the first time they've worked with cadets in these training stations. One session included flying f-35 simulators in the Flight Academy. "It simulates actual battle conditions actual training, you learn a lot even if you're just running a radio or tasking the aircraft, and learning how hard it is to be specific with your language," says Naval and Science Instructor at The Citadel, Lt. James Turnwall. Turnwall is a former helicopter pilot. The cadets also worked with the Mt. Pleasant Fire Department in navigating dark spaces with firefighter equipment.

4. Citadel alumni campaign to remove Confederate Naval Jack from Summerall Chapel
When Morris Robinson attended The Citadel, he was noted for at least two things: his performance on the football field and his performances of "O Holy Night" at Summerall Chapel. "Every week, the gospel choir would go into that chapel and sing," Robinson said. "We'd hold hands, have a prayer and sing gospel music all night. Everyone had a story to tell, a testimony, a song to sing and something to bring to the table. "We'd pray together as brothers - white, black, Asian, whomever. We were all there." Hanging over that scene was the Confederate Naval Jack, a flag similar to the Confederate battle flag that was removed from the Statehouse grounds in Columbia this year after the killing of nine people at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston. The Naval Jack still hangs in Summerall Chapel on The Citadel's campus, despite a vote by the school's Board of Visitors a week after the shootings to remove it. "It was hanging there front and center," said Robinson, "staring me right in the face. Something that divisive doesn't need to be in a place of worship."

5a. Richard Hyatt: Deciphering a bizarre moment in history
J. Robert Elliott was no stranger to history. He was a federal judge for 38 years, and when he retired in 2000 he was the oldest sitting judge in the country. He died six years later at the age of 96. From a courthouse in Columbus, Elliott put Martin Luther King Jr. in jail, overturned the conviction of Lt. William Calley, locked up aging nuns who came to protest at Fort Benning and confronted leaders of corporate America. President John F. Kennedy appointed him in 1962 and few people understood why a Catholic playboy from Massachusetts got involved with the son of a Methodist minister who kept a portrait of Gen. Robert E. Lee hanging in his chambers. Now comes a book co-authored by a former Columbus State University political science professor that connects the dots on the judge, the president and a U.S. senator whose family was political royalty in Georgia. Scott Buchanan and colleagues Charles Bullock and Ronald Keith Gaddie have written "The Three Governors Controversy." Their overdue study delves into the most bizarre moment in the history of Georgia politics. Voters elected Gene Talmadge, but he died in 1946 before becoming governor for the fourth time. The General Assembly handed the job to his son, Herman. Lt. Gov. M.E. Thompson claimed he was the rightful successor and sitting Gov. Ellis Arnall refused to budge. Elliott was the floor leader for the Talmadge faction, and as Buchanan describes, the Muscogee County legislator helped Herman prevail. "Judge Elliott was the muscle behind an important resolution that called for legislators to tally only the votes for governor. It won by two votes. If it had gone the other way, Thompson would have had a stronger claim," said Buchanan, a professor at The Citadel.

5b. The Next Page: Braddock's defeat revisited
The death of Gen. Edward Braddock III on July 13, 1755, was a surprise ending to his leadership of a great imperial march from Virginia to the frontier of the British Empire in Western Pennsylvania. His death followed the defeat of the British Army on July 9 at the hands of Native Americans and French Canadians in the Battle of the Monongahela. That battle occurred at what's now called Braddock's Field, near where Turtle Creek flows into the Monongahela River in present-day North Braddock. A young George Washington served as Gen. Braddock's aide. As he lay dying, Gen. Braddock despairingly asked the question, "Who would have thought it?" In a new book, "Braddock's Defeat," David L. Preston, professor of national security studies at The Citadel, has masterfully tackled the major reasons for and implications of this "profoundly pivotal" battle, which set the stage for what Europeans call the Seven Years' War and Americans call the French and Indian War - by either name, a battle of empires for control of the Old and New Worlds. The book is a reminder of the Braddock area's importance in the years before American independence. It's a story that Mr. Preston knows not only as a scholar but as a Grove City native who has walked in Gen. Braddock's footsteps. And it's a story that he will share with local Citadel alumni and high school students on a visit to Braddock this week. The new issues Mr. Preston raises revolve around these questions: What do you think about the Battle of Monongahela today? Are your thoughts the same as you learned in high school?

5c. Don't Expect 2016 Candidates To Restore Real Liberty
Many in the media and some among the voting public are focused, now, on the field of candidates who are offering themselves as the presidential nominees of the Republican and Democratic Parties. Every few weeks those on the Republican side have been confronting each other in television news-bite talking sessions that are loosely called "debates." The candidates lash out at each other with one-line zingers and frequent insults; they search for rhetoric-filled summaries of how each differs from the others on various "hot-topic" issues from immigration and foreign policy to getting government spending under control; at the same time they assure the viewers that each of them has the silver bullet to "create jobs," make America strong, and restore the American dream. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

6a. Citadel loses 31-23 to Chattanooga, must share SoCon title with Mocs
Both teams are Southern Conference champions, but you couldn't tell it by the sounds emanating from their locker rooms Saturday at Finley Stadium. While Chattanooga boisterously celebrated a 31-23 win over The Citadel - clinching a share of a third straight SoCon title for the ninth-ranked Mocs - the Bulldogs silently pondered defeat and an uncertain playoff future. The 8-2 Mocs and 20th-ranked Bulldogs (7-3) both finish the season with 6-1 SoCon records, making them co-champions by league rule. But Chattanooga, boosted by senior quarterback Jacob Huesman's two touchdowns, won the SoCon's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs and denied the Bulldogs an outright title. It left Citadel players feeling a strange mix of pride and dejection, even though they won the school's first SoCon title since 1992, and matched that team's league record. "We're co-champs, and that's all fun and good," said quarterback Dominique Allen. "But it definitely would have been nice to be the outright champion. Co-champs, I hate to say that, but we have it and now we have to see how the playoff thing works out for us."

6b. Harvard upset; Chattanooga wins SoCon bid
Pivotal conference matchups were found all across the FCS on Saturday as the regular season neared its conclusion. Penn delivered one of the more impressive performances of the day, ending No. 12 Harvard's FCS-best 22-game winning streak with a 35-25 victory in the Ivy League. In also stopping the Crimson's 16-game league win streak - dating to a 2013 loss to Princeton - Penn (6-3, 5-1) created a three-way tie atop the standings with Harvard (8-1) and Dartmouth (8-1). Chattanooga claimed a share of the Southern Conference title with The Citadel and the conference's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs by defeating the No. 21 Bulldogs 31-23. Both teams finished 6-1 in the SoCon heading into FBS matchups next Saturday. Chattanooga (8-2) travels to Florida State and The Citadel (7-3) heads to South Carolina.

6c. Citadel takes aim at outright SoCon title, playoff bid
The Citadel Bulldogs earned the right to call themselves Southern Conference champions last week, when they beat VMI and Chattanooga lost to Mercer. That clinched at least a share of the title for the Bulldogs, but there's been little celebrating around campus. "We haven't even really addressed it as a team," Bulldogs coach Mike Houston said this week. That will change Saturday afternoon at Chattanooga, if The Citadel is able to knock off the two-time defending SoCon champion Mocs. A win in Saturday's 2 p.m. game at Finley Stadium secures an outright SoCon title and automatic bid to the FCS playoffs - the first of both for the Bulldogs since 1992 - and also wraps up the school's first unbeaten SoCon season. All that would come in Houston's 22nd game as The Citadel's coach, an accelerated timeline even he could not anticipate. "In year two, did I expect us to improve as drastically as we have?" said Houston, whose first Citadel team went 5-7 overall and 3-4 in the SoCon. "I'm not positive. Certainly, it's the theme I preached with our roster from day one, getting to this game. It's what I stood here and said a year and a half ago, that our goal was to compete for and win conference championships."

6d. Elliott knows Gamecocks have reason to be wary of The Citadel
Shawn Elliott won't have to guess what The Citadel's players will be thinking when they arrive at Williams-Brice Stadium this weekend. South Carolina's interim head coach will know it from firsthand experience. Elliott was a defensive end at Appalachian State when the Mountaineers were Southern Conference stablemates with the Bulldogs, and a national power in what is now called Football Championship Subdivision. And he's well familiar with the mindset a smaller-college player takes into a game against a major-conference foe. "When I was at Appalachian, we looked at these games as not statement games, but maybe as - these guys didn't want me. We were undersized and not good enough to play at that level, and anytime we had an opportunity to go out and knock one of them off, you wore it with pride," Elliott said on his Sunday teleconference. "I know the mindset they're going to have, and I know they're a good football team. They're very capable of coming in here and playing extremely, extremely well, and they're going to want to win, without a doubt. And I will certainly address that issue and address the mindframe we're going to have to have in preparation for this team. They have such a good running game and are so sound defensively, and we're not good enough to just show up and beat somebody."

6e. Gamecocks not taking The Citadel for granted
When The Citadel's football players come into Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday, they'll be thinking they've got something extra to prove. Shawn Elliott knows, because he thought the same thing when he was playing at then-I-AA Appalachian State in the early 1990s. "We were thinking, 'The guys didn't want me. We were undersized. We were not good enough to play at that level.' Anytime we had the opportunity to go out and knock one of them off, we wore it with pride," said Elliott, the Gamecocks interim coach. The Bulldogs (7-3 overall, 6-1 Southern Conference) will be playing their final game of the regular season at noon in Columbia. "I know the mindset they are going to have, and I know they are a good football team," Elliott said. "They are very capable of coming in here and playing extremely well. They are going to want to win without a doubt, and I will certainly address that issue and address the mind frame we are going to have to have in preparation for this team." The Gamecocks (3-7 overall) have lost three straight and five of the last six after Saturday's 24-14 loss to Florida.

7. No. 24 Butler breaks records in 144-71 win over The Citadel
Butler didn't stop scoring until the school's record book had some changes made to it. Kellen Dunham scored 24 points and No. 24 Butler broke four school records Saturday night in a 144-71 trouncing of The Citadel. The 144 points shattered the previous record of 115 in a regulation win over DePauw in 1965. Trey Pettus' 3-pointer gave the Bulldogs a record 129 points for any game with under 6 minutes to play in the second half. "They won't all be like that. Our guys played with a purpose and I think they understood this game was a unique situation," Butler coach Chris Holtmann said. "This was probably a once in-a-lifetime type of game. I think we'll take a few key points from this, like sharing the ball and some of the pressure, but I think we'll move on and get ready for Missouri State," Dunham scored 22 of his 24 points before halftime when the Bulldogs broke two other school records for points scored in the first half and points scored in any half. Butler led The Citadel 71-41 at halftime, crushing the previous record of 63 points in any half and 61 in the first half. Butler did most of its damage during that first half in the paint, where the Bulldogs outscored The Citadel 46-12.

8a. Bennett to play volleyball at The Citadel
Autumn Bennett, a 5-10 senior at Windsor who played for the inaugural WSS team, signed a National letter of intent to continue her volleyball career at The Citadel. "I visited there this summer and in the early fall," said Bennett. "I felt like I didn't need to visit anywhere else. I knew that it was going to be the best choice for me and it felt right. I love it." The Citadel has an enrollment of 3,550 and competes at the Division I level in the Southern Conference. It is located in Charleston, South Carolina. "For her to be able to go where she wants to go is fantastic," said WSS coach Ronda Schlechte. "Division I status is every girl's dream for a volleyball career." Bennett also had offers from Illinois Central College, Lincoln Christian College and Division II Fairmont State University in West Virgina. "The school (The Citadel) is amazing," said Bennett. "It has a great education first of all and the team is great too. I see they are working on rebuilding the team right now and I see how I can help and the difference I can make and that is really exciting. It is an awesome situation." Windsor principal Erik Van Hoveln said of Bennett, "She is an excellent student athlete who excels in the classroom and on the floor." Bennett was the National Trail Conference Most Valuable Player for this season, one that saw the Hatchets go 28-10 and win the NTC Tournament and regular season title.

8b. Windsor/Stew-Stras' Bennett signs with The Citadel
Windsor/Stew-Stras' Autumn Bennett knew from an early age she wanted to be a college volleyball player. While her mother, Lori, was a coach at Lake Land College in Mattoon, she was around a group of players she described as "older sisters." That dream came true Friday morning at Windsor High School when Bennett signed to play volleyball at The Citadel. "The education there is amazing, it's a really great school," Bennett said of the Charleston, South Carolina military college. "The team was awesome, too. I visited early in October and I really liked the team." Bennett, who started playing volleyball in the fifth grade, earned National Trail Conference MVP honors in her senior season. She led the Lady Hatchets to a 28-10 season and a regional championship. On the season, the senior outside hitter had 219 kills, 43 aces, 198 digs, 11 solo blocks and 22 assisted blocks. For Windsor/Stew-Stras coach Ronda Schlechte, the Division I signing is a first. "It's exciting," Schlechte said. "Any time the kids get to go on to pursue the sport they love and also be able to help out with the college cost, I think it's wonderful, it's amazing. There's a lot of really tall girls out there, so for our girls to get to be able to compete at the college level, that really says something about them."

8c. Bulldogs Edged in Five Set Thriller
It was senior night and the last home game of the 2015 season inside McAlister Field House on Friday as The Citadel volleyball team lost a gritty five setter to Mercer 3-2. Senior middle hitter Bailey Kernodle and setter Rachel Keefer were recognized before the game for their accomplishments over the past four years. The Citadel jumped out to a quick one-set lead over the Bears taking the first set 25-19 behind 14 kills and three service aces from Megan Sowell. Mercer evened things up in the second set, going on a 6-0 run to close things out and take it 25-20. The Citadel won handedly in the third set, 25-15, after recording 12 kills and a .407 attack percentage. The third set would end after Mercer received two ball handling errors in a row to give the Bulldogs the win. The Bears had six ball handling errors in the third set. Mercer evened things once again in the fourth set behind a score of 25-20 to set up a deciding fifth set. The Bears jumped out to a 9-3 lead but the Bulldogs scrambled to close the gap to 11-8 behind solid serving from Sowell. The junior finished the contest with six aces, the fourth most in a single game in Bulldog history. Mercer would close the door on the Bulldogs from there though, tallying four straight points to take the 3-2 victory.

1. Katie Stagliano, Anita and Jerry Zucker recognized in 2nd annual Vision Awards
The second annual Joseph P. Riley Jr. Vision Award will once again go to more than one individual. It is given to honor outstanding community service and commitment to diversity in the name of Charleston's long time mayor, Joe Riley. "We want to carry on his legacy by presenting and acknowledging the people who have the same sort of vision that he does," said selection committee chair Elizabeth Colbert-Busch. This year's 13-member committee included a diverse group of young community leaders along with ABC News 4's Victoria Hansen, and Mayor Riley's sons, Joseph P. Riley III and W. Bratton Riley. "I think one of the things that my dad always says is the work that has been done here is teamwork," Bratton Riley said. "There are a lot of the team members that we considered today. We are just so honored to give the award to Anita and Jerry [Zucker] and also Katie Stagliano." Both Anita Zucker and her late husband Jerry will receive the award at this year's Martin Luther King, Jr. Business and Professional Breakfast in January. It's an event Mayor Riley co-founded in 2000, along with then-YWCA of Greater Charleston's executive director Christine Jackson, first cousin to Coretta Scott King. Jerry Zucker was president and CEO of the InterTech Group, and acquired Hudson's Bay Company of Canada. He was also a part owner of the Stingrays, and he and donated millions of dollars to international medical missions as well as local charities. His wife, Anita, serves on the board of the Coastal Community Foundation, and as a trustee of the Saul Alexander Foundation and the Jewish Endowment Fund. After Jerry's death in 2008, the Zucker family made a donation of $2 million in Zucker's name to the Medical University of South Carolina. $1 million was allocated for the establishment of the Jerry Zucker Endowed Chair in Brain Tumor Research. In November 2014, she donated $4 million to The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina for education programs. In return, The Citadel named its School of Education for the Zucker family.

2. Citadel kicker Eric Goins almost perfect on field, in class
Like a golfer retooling his swing, Citadel kicker Eric Goins went back to the basics during the off-season. He wasn't completely thrilled with his 64 percent success rate on field goals last year. "I'm not saying I'm Tiger Woods or anything," Goins said this week. "But I just broke down my swing, starting with ball contact to plant foot to the drawback on my swing and the follow through to what target I was aiming at. "My big focus was to just be more consistent in what I was doing, to get back down to the fundamentals of my swing." Goins' swing overhaul has proven to be much more successful than Tiger's latest retooling. The 6-2, 205-pound junior from Herndon, Va., made a school-record five field goals in last week's 35-14 win over VMI, helping to clinch at least a share of the Southern Conference championship. Goins also set a school record for points scored by kicking with 17, and for the season has made 10 of 12 field goals (83.3 percent) and is a perfect 33 of 33 on extra points.

3. Fast, physical play have The Citadel on cusp of Southern title
The salvos unleashed by the Bulldogs have put them atop the Southern Conference, and one more successful volley Saturday at Chattanooga would result in them claiming the league's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. It has been a year of overachieving for The Citadel (7-2, 6-0), ranked 21st in the most recent STATS FCS Top 25 and winner of five straight after back-to-back losses to Georgia Southern and Charleston Southern in September. Picked seventh in the coaches' preseason poll, the Bulldogs have turned those low expectations right side up under second-year coach Mike Houston while enjoying their longest single-season winning streak since 1992, which is also the last year they reached the FCS playoffs. "Back when we had media day, we were picked seventh and I saw how much our team had changed on a daily basis at practice," said Houston, who felt his team was picked too low. "It all goes back to the buy-in of the guys who were here when we got here and the guys who came here the past two years and how they've meshed together." It all comes to a head for the Bulldogs against the eighth-ranked Mocs, the unanimous preseason pick to win their third straight Southern title who now find themselves the hunters for the first time in conference play after a 17-14 loss at Mercer last week.

5. Butler Takes on The Citadel in Home Opener
For Butler's season opener, there's no sugar-coating it, it's going to be ugly. The Citadel, hailing from Charleston, South Carolina, will likely become the victims of some serious Bulldog-on-Bulldog violence. The Butler men's basketball team kicks off its much-anticipated 2015-16 season Saturday, November 14th, at Hinkle Fieldhouse against The Citadel Bulldogs. After two blowout victories in the preseason, Butler is primed and ready for a strong start to its non-conference schedule. Good news for Butler heading into Saturday's match up - and terrible news for The Citadel - is 6-foot-8-inch junior forward Andrew Chrabascz is expected to be back on the floor after a concussion suffered during practice kept him out of the team's final preseason game.

1. Homeless veterans served special feast by Citadel cadets
On this Veterans Day, homeless veterans enjoyed a special lunch at One80 Place in Downtown Charleston. The veterans were served a hearty meal by cadets from The Citadel, the local military college. The cadets didn't just serve the meals, they sat down and got to know a room full of men and women who have fought for our country. It also gave the veterans an opportunity to share their stories and memories, from that time in their lives. The meal was reminiscent of a Thanksgiving feast and the tables were adorned with thank you cards and placements. Local elementary students created the decorations. Organizers from One80 place say that every year they help around 1,000 homeless veterans and each year they're able to get about half of those people off the streets.

Cadets from the Protestant, Catholic and Gospel Choirs join The Citadel Chorale and members of The Citadel Regimental Band for an unforgettable Christmas celebration. The 2015 services will take place Dec. 4 - 6 at 7:30 p.m. with prelude music beginning at 7 p.m. performed by The Citadel Brass Ensemble led by Cmdr. Mike Alverson, and the Chapel Accompanist, Patti Harris. This will mark Chaplain Joel Harris' final services as he is retiring at the end of the year. "The Citadel's Candlelight services are always the highlight of my year," said Chaplain Harris. "After 20 years as a chaplain, I'd thought I'd seen the best possible, including our services at West Point, but all paled in comparison to the performance our Citadel cadets put on. It's been an honor to be present as our cadets and community come together to celebrate Christmas year after year in such a spectacular setting."

4. Former US Rep. Valentine of North Carolina Dies at 89
Former U.S. Rep. Tim Valentine of North Carolina has died at age 89. Sherry Peace with Wheeler and Woodlief Funeral Home in Rocky Mount said Valentine, of Nashville, died Tuesday. The Democrat served in the House from 1983 to 1995, representing what was then the 2nd Congressional District. It included parts of the Raleigh-Durham area. Valentine also was in the North Carolina House from 1955 to 1960. Valentine served in the U.S. Army Air Corps during World War II. He graduated from The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, in 1948 and graduated from law school at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill in 1952. North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper says he grew up two blocks away from the Valentines. He says Valentine loved Nash County and North Carolina.

5. Former Citadel star Andre Roberts nominated for NFL's Salute to Service award
The son of two U.S. Army members, Andre Roberts was born in Alaska and moved to Texas and South Carolina as his mom and dad were transferred from base to base. He even spent a year with his grandparents in the Virgin Islands while his parents served in Korea. And when Roberts starred as an All-American receiver at The Citadel from 2006-09, his connection to the military was cemented. No wonder, then, that Roberts was announced Wednesday as the Washington Redskins' nominee for the Salute to Service award. "It's awesome," Roberts said during a news conference Wednesday. "I get a chance to work with military kids and their families and to meet a lot of veterans and their wives, and that's a blessing for me." Roberts, in his sixth season in the NFL, is know for his salute touchdown celebration, and each summer runs summer camps for military children. He's hosted five military camps, including one at Joint Base Charleston in 2013.

6a. Sapakoff: The Citadel is better than a hollow SoCon co-championship title
There are no co-championship celebrations in pro sports without an accompanying pass to the playoffs. Imagine the NFC East runner-up unfurling a banner after missing the playoffs but finishing tied for first place with a team it went 0-2 against during the regular season. That wouldn't work in Dallas, New York or Washington. Such a move gets the banner booed out of Philadelphia faster than an imperfect Santa Claus. Even in famously polite Charleston, a co-championship might be hard to explain a few generations from now. "Hey, granddaddy, what's that co-championship sign mean?" "That's when we finished tied with Chattanooga for first place back in '15." "I didn't know you were on a playoff team." "I wasn't." "Oh." Officially and ridiculously, the Southern Conference, like most college leagues, recognizes co-champions even when one co-champ loses the head-to-head matchup with the other or doesn't get the automatic postseason bid. But The Citadel's co-champion football status earned last week is hollow and not worthy of a banner if the Bulldogs (7-2 overall and 6-0 in the SoCon) don't win at Chattanooga (7-2, 5-1) on Saturday to seize the SoCon's pass to the FCS playoffs.

6b. Citadel's versatile Quinlan Washington finds home on defense
Quinlan Washington played receiver and quarterback in high school, signed with The Citadel as a running back in 2014 and was switched to defense last spring. But after a breakout performance in the Bulldogs' 35-14 win over VMI last week, it's safe to say that the versatile Washington has found a home at perhaps the most demanding position in The Citadel's defense - bandit linebacker. Washington, 6-0 and 201 pounds, intercepted two passes against VMI, returning one of them 72 yards for a touchdown. He also made a career-best four tackles, including a perfectly timed blitz that resulted in a sack and fumble and quelled a comeback attempt by the Keydets. The redshirt freshman was named the Southern Conference defensive player of the week, and the win over VMI helped secure a share of the SoCon championship for the Bulldogs, their first since 1992. The Citadel, ranked No. 20 in FCS, can clinch an outright title and automatic bid to the FCS playoffs with a win Saturday at No. 9 Chattanooga. Those types of big defensive plays are what Citadel coach Mike Houston envisioned when he watched film of Washington playing quarterback and receiver for Bucholz High School in Gainesville, Fla.

6c. UTC Mocs defense prepares for Citadel's strong ground game
As a defensive tackle for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, Toyvian Brand took his fair share of punishment inside against triple-option offenses. Now, as a defensive end, things are a little easier for the fifth-year senior — but his role is no less important. The Citadel will bring four of the Southern Conference's top 10 rushers to Finley Stadium for Saturday's winner-take-all game for the league's automatic bid for the FCS playoffs. The Bulldogs (7-2, 6-0), ranked No. 20 in one FCS poll and No. 21 in another, have already clinched at least a share of the SoCon title. UTC (7-2, 5-1), ranked eighth in one poll and ninth in the other, needs a win Saturday to share the championship. Brand spent two seasons as a tackle in the Mocs' scheme, then moved back to end, the position at which he earned all-state honors at Hillcrest High School in Tuscaloosa, Ala. "The defensive tackles are getting the most physical part of the game the entire game," he said. "Defensive ends have leeway, can get off blocks and don't have to touch the tackles, but defensive tackles get it every day. It's rough there on the inside I know what it's like. "I'm happy to be playing end." The Bulldogs average 350.1 rushing yards per game, which is second in the nation. They average 60 rushing attempts per game and have 33 touchdowns on the ground. UTC leads the league in rushing defense, allowing 140.1 yards per game, and has given up just eight rushing touchdowns.

7. Pinewood hires track and field coach
Pinewood Athletic Director Andy Morgan recently named Jelain Whitfield as the new Pinewood track and field coach. "We are thrilled to have Jelain join our athletic coaching staff as the leader of our track and field program," Morgan said. "The desire for us to get better in track and field and expand the number of athletes who participate in the program led us to Jelain. She has a contagious positive energy about her and possesses the understanding of how to grow a program and take it to the level where we envision and expect it to be each year. There is no doubt we have the right person for this job with Jelain. It is great to have her as a part of our Pinewood family." Whitfield had an illustrious career at the College of Charleston, where she holds the indoor school records in long jump, triple jump and 60-meter hurdles.

In outdoor track and field, Whitfield holds the C of C records in long jump, triple jump and 100 Hurdles and was named Freshman of the Year. Whitfield also finished as the runner-up in the 100 Hurdles at the SoCon Championships. Whitfield graduated from the College of Charleston in 2013 with a BS degree in Exercise Science and is currently enrolled at the Citadel graduate college pursuing a MAT in Physical Education. Whitfield has recently coached long and triple jump, sprints, hurdles, relays and middle distance as an assistant track and field coach at Fort Dorchester High School.

8. Player of the Week - Cole Douglas
Dutch Fork head football coach Tom Knotts admits he's a tough grader. But quarterback Cole Douglas had a near-perfect grade in last week's win over Lugoff-Elgin. Douglas is the son of former Citadel quarterback Jack Douglas and the younger Douglas says having a father who has been through the same battles on the field has helped him throughout his high school career. Cole's grades are so strong that his college choices are down to Yale from the Ivy League and The Citadel which would mean Douglas would follow in his father's footsteps to Charleston. Douglas plans on majoring in engineering, so whether he ends up in Charleston or New Haven, he will be challenged academically.

Two North Augusta High School athletes advanced their careers on Wednesday, inking national letters of intent to play in college. Alli Bell, a volleyball player, signed to play at Shorter University and Seth Owens, a baseball player, signed to Charleston Southern University. Owens, a sidearm firing pitcher for the North Augusta baseball team, chose Charleston Southern after impressing the coaching staff at a camp. "I went down to a camp for The Citadel, Charleston Southern and the College of Charleston and they saw me and asked if I was interested," Owens explained. "In a few weeks they had me down there on a visit, put the offer on the table and said 'This is what we can do for you.'" "Like any other stage of baseball, the further you go, the game is going to speed up," Branon said of the college game. "He's going to have to progress with the game. But, with the way that he works and the type of kid that he is, it shouldn't be much of a problem." North Augusta's baseball season begins with a scrimmage against Batesburg-Leesville on Feb. 11, 2016.

1a. My veteran-filled life: from growing up on Parris Island, to my call to serve
I come from a family steeped in military history. That makes Veteran's Day a humbling time for us because we have a deep understanding of service and sacrifice for our great country. My father watched his father serve as a Marine, and my mother grew up hearing stories of her father’s service in the Navy during World War II. She would later follow my father throughout his career as a Marine wife. After my sister and I were born, we too became immersed in the military lifestyle, proudly calling ourselves "military brats" while growing up on Parris Island, near Beaufort, South Carolina. The base is celebrating its 100th anniversary, and my family has been a part of it for many of those years. Parris Island serves as one of only two Marine bases in the nation where boot camp is held. My grandfather completed boot camp there in the 1940s, my father was stationed there in the 90s, and as I said, I was there as a child, and then returned for boot camp myself in the mid-2000s. My first memories of life in the Marines date back to when I was 5 years old. My family had just moved to Parris Island. My father, Col. John Kispert, was stationed there as chief of staff-only one level below the commanding general. I was young, but I was old enough to be shaped by the world around me. Roaming Parris Island with my friends on bikes taught me a lot. My friends came from all backgrounds and I learned from an early age that none of that mattered - we were all Americans. Exploring the island, we watched young recruits transform into tough Marines. This had a lasting impression on me.

2. The POW Choir in the Hanoi Hilton
Tomorrow is Veteran's Day, an official United States federal holiday that is observed annually on Nov. 11, honoring people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It coincides with other holidays including Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954. This week I take privilege in sharing the story of a veteran that gave positive impact on my life. In my eyes he ably fills the role of hero but if you told him such I'm sure his response would be an "Ah shucks." His name was actually Lt. J. Quincy Collins and he was the director of the Protestant Cadet Chapel choir. We cadets who were privileged to be members of that choir just called him Quincy. Six foot plus and built rugged he didn't fit the picture of the refined music teacher but his obvious love of music and skill at getting us to sing in four part harmony simply made practice and our weekly chapel performances fun. Lt Collins had been commissioned out of The Citadel a South Carolina military school and was an excellent example of a proper young Air Force officer that we cadets could strive to emulate. Upon graduation from the Academy and subsequent training leading to Squadron duty I lost track of Quincy. Eventually, 1967, I was assigned to duty, flying KC-135 air refueling tankers, in the Vietnam War theatre of operations. Curious as to how our air war was going I'd occasionally check in with the intelligence section to read reports of pilots shot down how they had evaded capture and were rescued.

3. Working side by side to improve transportation: Citadel engineering cadets and students join the national conversation
Working side by side with top industry leaders is something most engineers-in-training don't get to do until their careers are well off the ground. Not true, however, for a group of cadets and students from The Citadel Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. In late October, 20 of us set out to spend the day brainstorming and learning from high-ranking transportation leaders who are engaged in policy work, including the highest-ranking one of all, United States Secretary of Transportation, Anthony Foxx. We were invited to participate in the U.S. Department of Transportation Beyond Traffic Workshop 2045 that was held at the new Gaillard Center here in Charleston. In addition to Secretary Foxx, some of the dignitaries present included the North Carolina Secretary of Transportation, Nick Tennyson, the Mayor of Atlanta, Kasim Reed, and the mayor of Charleston, Joseph P. Riley, Jr., who is a 1964 graduate of The Citadel. The event was organized by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) which is holding similar collaborative planning sessions in 11 regions in order to gather knowledge about future traffic and transportation needs across North America. This particular workshop focused on the Atlantic Piedmont mega region including North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia. What we didn't know until the close of the session was that this was the first time college students had been involved in the process.

4. The Citadel School of Engineering More Than Doubles Offerings
America's fifth oldest engineering school is more than doubling the graduate programs it offers and now has a facility to accommodate large-scale projects, plus upgraded labs all complementing an undergraduate program expansion in 2014. At a ribbon-cutting on campus Nov. 7, the Dean of The Citadel School of Engineering announced three new graduate degrees, and 10 new graduate certificates, as he officially opened a new fabrication shop plus five upgraded lab classrooms. "The expansion of programs being offered by The Citadel School of Engineering means more and more engineers who are trained to the highest professional and ethical standards will be readily available to support South Carolina's burgeoning industries," said Dean Ronald Welch, Ph.D., PE, ASEE Fellow, ASCE Fellow, SAME Fellow, U.S. Army Col. (retired). "The enlargement of facilities where cadets and students can learn means we now have the space and the equipment needed to accommodate our growing population of future engineers." The school will expand from one engineering graduate program to four, and from offering three engineering graduate certificates to 13. This comes after the school initiated its third undergraduate engineering degree program, mechanical engineering, in 2014. The military college was the forerunner in engineering education in the state of South Carolina and fifth in the nation; engineering has been a part of the college's curriculum since its inception in 1842.

5. The Citadel's 78th Christmas Candlelight Services
One of Charleston's longest and most memorable holiday traditions is the Christmas Candlelight Services at The Citadel's historic Summerall Chapel. The 2015 services will take place Dec. 4 - 6. Each performance is at 7:30 p.m. The services, which are held for the community and for visitors to Charleston, feature Christmas music performed by members of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. This will mark Chaplain Joel Harris' final services as he is retiring at the end of the year. Harris joined The Citadel in 2009 as the director of religious activities after serving more than 20 years on a variety of assignments for the U.S. Army. A 1972 graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, Harris' last assignment before retirement was as chief of operations for the U.S. Army Europe Chaplain. When he was selected for promotion to colonel in September 2008, he chose instead to retire and accept the opportunity to lead religious activities at The Citadel.

6. Rebekah Morgan & David Mitchell with Summerall Guards
When Charleston native Rebekah Morgan started a new job in 2002, College of Charleston alumnus David Mitchell, who hails from Greenville, was the first person she met. Following years of friendship, the coworkers' relationship turned romantic, and in 2010, their company transferred the couple to New Orleans, where they lived together and enjoyed the city until moving back to the Holy City in 2014. Months later, the pair returned to The Big Easy to attend Mardi Gras-a favorite tradition of theirs from the city. While cheering on from Canal Street, the couple spotted The Citadel's Summerall Guards, who march annually as part of the parades. When they passed, Rebekah waved and shouted for the guards' attention in hopes of calling a drill to the cadets, as she had done in years past. The lead officer obliged and the couple crossed through the barricade to join the guards. "German March!" yelled Rebekah, and in a synchronized formation the cadets parted on either side of her and raised their rifles. At the end of the line was David, down on bended knee. "The guards' rifles quickly struck the ground with force as we passed by, seeming to emphasize the life-long commitment we had just made to one another," says Rebekah of the moment, which David had been planning with the cadets' help for weeks. The pair will tie the knot September 26, 2015.

7a. Citadel defense has gone from 'embarrassing' to 'dominating'
In one breath Saturday afternoon, Citadel coach Mike Houston used the words "embarrassing" and "dominating" to describe the Bulldogs' defense. The first term applied to The Citadel's defensive numbers last season. The second described the Bulldogs' performance in Saturday's 35-14 win over VMI, when The Citadel forced six turnovers and turned two of them into defensive touchdowns. The Citadel's Mark Thomas forced VMI's Jade Maher to fumble during their game Saturday. The difference between "embarrassing" and "dominating" is the difference in Citadel football in Houston's second season, as the Bulldogs have gone from 5-7 overall and 3-4 in the Southern Conference in 2014 to 7-2 and 6-0 this season. The Citadel, ranked No. 20, already has clinched a share of the SoCon title, its first since 1992, and can grab an automatic bid to the FCS playoffs with a win Saturday at No. 9 Chattanooga. "We were decent on offense last year, and embarrassing on defense last year," Houston said after the VMI game. "That's the biggest turnaround on our team, the improvement on that side of the ball."

7b. Bucs and Bulldogs, not just Tigers
The College Football Playoff selection committee put Clemson atop its rankings again Tuesday night. The Tigers are also No. 1 in The Associated Press weekly poll released Sunday. But Charleston Southern is the only team in this state to already clinch a playoff spot. Coach Jamey Chadwell's Buccaneers did so by winning the Big South title with a 28-14 triumph Saturday at Kennesaw State to secure the league's automatic bid in the Football Championship Series playoffs. And though The Citadel lost the unofficial local championship game to the Bucs for the third straight year back in September, the Bulldogs have won five straight since then. Along the winning way, The Citadel, on a rapid rise under second-year coach Mike Houston, has earned at least a share of the Southern Conference title - only the third in school history. A victory Saturday at Chattanooga would give the Bulldogs an outright conference championship - and an FCS playoff bid.

8b. Weathering the storm
On October 23, playing their second game in three days, with the ball not bouncing and the calls not seeming to go their way, the C.E. Murray football team managed to emerge with a 13-8 win over Timmonsville. Under tough circumstances, the War Eagles managed to weather the storm. In that department, they'd had an awful lot of practice. C.E. Murray High School sits just inside the town limits of Greeleyville, S.C., a community with a population of 375 (as of the last census) in the western-most tip of Williamsburg County. The school opened in the early 1970s during the dawn of school desegregation near the site of the formerly all-black Williamsburg Training School. The school does not have a history of success on the gridiron. Since first fielding a team in 1973, C.E. Murray had finished over .500 just seven times prior this season and hasn't posted a winning record since 2004. Since the best season in school history (an 11-2 mark in 1994) the War Eagles have finished a year with one win or no wins on five occasions. In 2013, Brian Smith was charged with changing the program's fortunes. Smith, originally from Massachusetts, came to South Carolina to play football for The Citadel, coached at his college alma mater and had stints as an assistant coach at Lynn Classical High, Laurence Manning Academy and Manning High School before getting his first head coaching job with C.E. Murray. The team went 2-8 in his first year and many of the losses were not close. "It took a year to sort of clean up the program. They'd never won anything or even had a really successful season since 1994," Smith said. The results improved the next year. The War Eagles went 3-7 in the regular season and the losses were more competitive. The team earned a spot in the Class A playoffs.

9. Lake, Bucs announce 2016 CSU baseball schedule
A season-opening series with the Big 12's West Virginia and a weekend series at South Carolina highlight Charleston Southern's 2016 baseball schedule, CSU head coach Stuart Lake announced on Tuesday. The Buccaneers will open the season on Feb. 19-21 with a three-game series against Mountaineers at CSU Ballpark. CSU has 30 home games scheduled, 16 of which are in the first month of the season. "We're excited to have West Virginia coming here for the opening weekend," CSU head coach Stuart Lake said Tuesday. "It closes out our home-and-home series with them. Coach (Randy) Mazey coached here and he wanted to start the season in Charleston. It's good for our program to get a series at CSU Ballpark with a power five conference team." CSU's first five road games will be played in SEC parks as the Bucs travel to Athens, Ga. to face the Georgia Bulldogs for a two-game series (March 1-2) before a three-game series at South Carolina (March 11-13) in Columbia, S.C. The Bucs also play at Clemson on May 17. "It's a challenging schedule, maybe too much," Lake added. "The opening weekend (WVU) and the series at South Carolina will be big tests for us early in the season to see where we are against some of the nation's top programs." Butler (Feb. 26-28), UMass (March 4-6), and George Washington (March 18-20) visit CSU Ballpark for weekend series in non-conference play. CSU opens Big South Conference play March 24-26 against Campbell at CSU Ballpark. Longwood, UNC Asheville, and Coastal Carolina all come to Charleston for conference series, while the Bucs make trips to Liberty, Gardner-Webb, Winthrop, and Presbyterian in league play. CSU will also play its traditional, Charleston-area rivals, playing a home-and-home series with both College of Charleston and The Citadel. The Bucs will also play Savannah State, USC Upstate, North Carolina Central, and Jacksonville all twice in midweek action.

"The Citadel's Candlelight services are always the highlight of my year," said Chaplain Harris. "After 20 years as a chaplain, I'd thought I'd seen the best possible, to include our services at West Point, but all paled in comparison to the performance our Citadel cadets put on. It’s been an honor to be present as our cadets and community come together to celebrate Christmas year after year in such a spectacular setting."

4. The Citadel Rises In Both FCS Polls
The Citadel football team has moved up in each of the FCS national polls released Monday. The Bulldogs are ranked 20th in the Coaches Poll and 21st in the STATS poll. The Citadel is 7-2 overall this season, including 6-0 in the Southern Conference. The Bulldogs are one of 10 FCS teams still undefeated in conference play and have tied the school record for conference wins in a season, matching the 1992 team's six SoCon victories. The Bulldogs have won five games in a row, the program's longest single-season winning streak since 1992. The Citadel leads the FCS with 33 rushing touchdowns and a school-record 426 interception return yards and is tied for the FCS lead with 17 interceptions and four interception return touchdowns. The Bulldogs' average of 349.6 rushing yards per game and 24 turnovers forced rank first in the SoCon and second in FCS. The Bulldogs also lead the Southern Conference in scoring margin, yards per completion, sacks allowed, tackles for loss allowed, pass efficiency defense, scoring offense, third-down defense and tackles for loss. In conference games, The Citadel leads the Southern Conference in scoring offense at 34.2 points per game and scoring defense allowing an average of 16.2 points per game. The Bulldogs also rank first in touchdowns, rushing offense, rushing defense, pass efficiency, pass efficiency defense, sacks, sacks allowed, third-down defense, interceptions and kickoff returns.

5. Citadel's Quinlan Washington is SoCon defensive player of the week
Citadel bandit linebacker Quinlan Washington has been named the Southern Conference defensive player of the week for his performance in a 35-14 win over VMI on Saturday. Washington, a 6-0, 201-pound redshirt freshman from Gainesville, Fla., intercepted two passes, returning one for a 72-yard touchdown. He also forced a fumble with a sack and made a career-high four tackles. Washington's two interceptions were half of the four passes picked off by the Bulldogs on Saturday, giving the team 17 interceptions for the season. That total and the Bulldogs' four interceptions returned for touchdowns are tied for the FCS lead. Washington is the third Citadel player to earn the weekly honor. Linebacker Tevin Floyd has won it twice and cornerback Dee Delaney once. Delaney also was the SoCon defensive player of the month for September.

6. Citadel basketball: Bulldogs ready to play 'Duggarball'
Citadel forward Brian White played 459 minutes of college basketball last season without attempting a single 3-point shot. In the Bulldogs' exhibition game last week, the 6-8 junior fired up nine 3-pointers in 17 minutes, making four of them. That's just one statistical foreshadowing of the radical change in style the Bulldogs will undergo this season with new coach Duggar Baucom. With "Embrace the Pace" as his slogan, the former VMI coach plans to transform The Citadel from one of the slowest-paced teams in Division I basketball to perhaps the fastest. Pressing, trapping, pushing the ball up the floor and turning down no open 3-pointers were all hallmarks of Baucom's VMI teams, which led the nation in scoring six times during his 10 seasons. "Whenever we played against VMI, I would see how fast they played and how many 3-pointers they got up," said White, who averaged 8.4 points for the Bulldogs last season. "We'd always hang in there for a while, but then we'd lose. "Playing now with Coach Baucom feels pretty good. Playing fast is my kind of game, and I think everybody has bought in so far."

7. Noon kickoff, alternate SEC Network channel when Citadel visits Gamecocks on Nov. 21
It will be a noon kickoff when The Citadel visits Williams-Brice Stadium to play South Carolina on Nov. 21. The game will be televised on the SEC Network's alternate channel, the SEC announced Monday. The Gamecocks hold a 40-7-3 edge in their series with the Charleston military school, winning the last meeting 41-20 in Columbia in 2011. The Bulldogs shocked the Gamecocks, 38-5, at Williams-Brice Stadium in 1990. South Carolina fell to 3-6 overall and 1-6 in SEC play with this past weekend's 27-24 loss at Tennessee, and hosts No. 11 Florida (8-1, 6-1 SEC) at noon Saturday. The Gators clinched the SEC East championship last weekend with a win over Vanderbilt. The Citadel last weekend improved to 7-2 overall and 6-0 in the Southern Conference with a 35-14 victory over VMI. The Bulldogs clinched at least a share of the SoCon title with the win, and play for the outright league championship at 2 p.m. Saturday at Chattanooga. The Citadel was ranked No. 20 in the Football Championship Subdivision coaches' poll released Monday.

Joshua Dvorak of Portsmouth, a member of the Regimental Band and Pipes at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina, has been invited to the 2015 Edinburgh Tattoo in Scotland. The only U.S. military college band to ever be invited to the exclusive Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo will be headed back to Edinburgh, Scotland, in July of 2015. The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes will again be the only U.S. band appearing on the medieval castle esplanade for the month-long festival of music, pageantry and demonstrations by military organizations from around the world. The program is broadcast in 30 countries to approximately 100 million people annually, according to the BBC. "We are pleased that The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes has been invited back to Edinburgh to represent the United States in 2015," said Citadel President Lieutenant General John W. Rosa. "Thank you to all the alumni and friends of the college who help to support this event that showcases our talented cadets to the world."

2b. Crochet, Weaver Earn Academic All-District Honors
The Citadel's Joe Crochet and Kyle Weaver were voted CoSIDA first-team Academic All-District, it was announced Thursday. Crochet has graduated from The Citadel with a bachelor's degree in business administration and is pursuing his MBA. The junior defensive lineman from Stone Mountain, Georgia, earned an undergraduate grade-point average of 3.82 and was named the team's Defensive Player of the Year last season. This year, he has recorded 26 tackles, including 2.5 for loss with 2.0 sacks, two fumble recoveries and one quarterback hurry. His fumble recoveries total is tied for first in the Southern Conference and for seventh in FCS. Weaver is a business administration major with a concentration in supply chain management with a 3.58 GPA. The junior offensive lineman from Hilton Head, South Carolina, has started 20 straight games at guard. He is part of a unit that is blocking for an offense that leads the Southern Conference in scoring at 34.0 points per game, rushing offense with 352.5 yards per game, tackles for loss allowed with 2.63 per game, sacks allowed with just 0.50 per game and yards per completion with an average of 18.03.

3. Bill Gates, Climate Change and the Capitalist System
Bill Gates of Microsoft is one of the wealthiest individuals in the world, so when he speaks it is not surprising that the world tends to listen. In a recent interview, Gates has said that capitalism is inherently unable to solve the problem of global warming, and instead there have to be world-encompassing government-business "partnerships" to save Planet Earth. In the November 2015 issue of "Atlantic" magazine, Bill Gates asserts that private enterprisers are too self-interested, too narrowly focused on short-run market profitability, not innovatively-oriented enough, and not sufficiently incentivized to develop on their own the needed alternative energy sources that can eliminate the use of fossil fuels by the middle of the twenty-first century. Thus, the only answer is for governments to design an agenda and a plan of action to direct and subsidize the private enterprises that cannot be trusted to solve what he considers the leading problem facing everyone in the world: climate change and global warming. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

4a. Pat Conroy provides spark for writing passion
A few weeks back, at a book festival in Decatur, Georgia, I met Pat Conroy for the first time. I removed my hat, called him sir. I stuttered. And I told him that he was a large part of the reason I'd quit teaching English. I don't remember why I first picked up "The Lords of Discipline" as a teenager - perhaps it was the title's masculine overtone and vague promise of violence, or maybe just late summer boredom - but I do remember my reaction. Conroy's depiction of Charleston, the harbor, and The Citadel in the novel's opening pages sparked a conflagration. I had grown up reading, but the power of his descriptions and their strong sense of place struck me in powerfully new ways. I liked his sentences so much that I memorized some passages from the book's opening chapter and passed them off as my own to try and impress girls. Plagiarism? Yes. But classier than some other options. At least that's what I told myself. I digested his work, moving beyond the intense descriptions and into the human condition aspect of his novels. Just as I was beginning to recognize and dissect the complexities of my own family, Conroy slapped me in the soul with the tortured stories of his fractured experiences.

6a. Citadel clinches share of SoCon title, retains Silver Shako
At long last, Citadel players were able to end their postgame celebration by shouting, "Beat Chattanooga!" And that was with full approval from coach Mike Houston. "You bet your rear end it was," a jubilant Houston said after a 35-14 homecoming win over VMI before a season-high crowd of 14,925 fans at Johnson Hagood Stadium. The Bulldogs' fifth straight victory kept the coveted Silver Shako - which goes to the winner of the Military Classic of the South - in Charleston, and set up a showdown at Chattanooga next week for the outright Southern Conference championship. The Bulldogs clinched a share of the SoCon title - their first since 1992 - later Saturday night when Mercer upset the No. 3 Mocs, 17-14. Chattanooga fell to 7-2 overall and 5-1 in the SoCon. The Citadel can claim the outright title and the SoCon's automatic bid to the FCS playoffs with a win next Saturday; Chattanooga can still grab a share of the title and get the auto bid if it beats The Citadel.

Eric Goins made five field goals; The Citadel forced six turnovers, and beat VMI 35-14 on Saturday. Goins did not miss a field goal, all from inside the 34.

Hayden Alford was 14-of-35 passing for 125 yards with a touchdown and four interceptions for VMI (2-8, 1-5). Jackson and Washington scored before Alford tossed a 3-yard touchdown pass to Derrick Ziglar to pull the Keydets to 14-7. Two field goals by Goins pushed the Bulldogs lead to 20-7 at halftime. Amon-Ra Clay recovered a Jackson fumble, and Ziglar ran in it from the 3-yard line on the next play to make it 20-14. The Bulldogs then forced two fumbles and two interceptions.

6d. VMI and The Citadel much the same, but with real football differences
The similarities between The Citadel and Virginia Military Institute are what make the football rivalry between the two military schools something special. The Military Classic of the South pits the only two NCAA Division I non-academy military schools against each other, with the coveted Silver Shako trophy on the line. Both VMI and The Citadel feature a rigorous fourth-class system (freshmen are rats at VMI, knobs at The Citadel) and proud records of sending graduates on to military and public service (Gen. George Marshall of the Marshall Plan played football at VMI; U.S. Sen. Ernest Hollings and Charleston Mayor Joe Riley went to The Citadel). But when it comes to football, there are some very real differences that have helped The Citadel own an edge over VMI that's only grown more distinct in recent years. The Citadel has a 38-30-2 advantage over VMI in the series, and has won 18 of the last 23 meetings, including the last eight in a row.

7. The Citadel Beats Erskine 118-73 in Exhibition Matchup
The Citadel basketball team defeated Division II Erskine 118-73 in an exhibition matchup on Friday at McAlister Field House. Head coach Duggar Baucom's squad turned up the heat defensively, scoring 52 points off of 31 forced turnovers in the victory. Six different Bulldogs scored in double figures as junior Brian White and freshman Quayson Williams led the team with 22 points each. After excessive condensation on the floor caused a lengthy game delay early in the first half, The Citadel raced out to a commanding lead on the heels of a 24-2 run. Williams and White accounted for 17 of those 24 points during the run, draining five combined threes. The Bulldogs finished with 21 total made three-pointers, shooting 42.4 percent from the floor and 19-of-25 from the free throw line as a team. "It was great to play someone else and I was most pleased with how we handled the adversity of the long delay," Coach Baucom said. "I was really pleased with the guys' energy at that point. I thought Quayson Williams for his first college game certainly played well and Brian White will be a great player for us. Everyone contributed and we got to play everyone a good bit to get their feet wet." The Citadel continued to pour it on to close out the opening half, receiving gritty efforts from graduate transfers P.J. Boutte and Derrick Henry. Boutte finished with six assists and four steals, setting up several easy transition baskets throughout the game. Henry added 17 points and five rebounds off the bench, shooting 5-of-7 from the floor. His deep three-pointer from the wing with 37 seconds left handed the Bulldogs a 68-28 halftime lead.

8. Grapplers Begin Season Saturday Morning
The Citadel wrestling team will begin its 2015-16 campaign on Saturday morning inside McAlister Field House at 9 a.m. when it host SoCon rival VMI for the Bruegger's Bagels Wakeup Takedown Challenge. This will be the first dual for both teams this season. "This is obviously a huge weekend for both schools, first dual of the year, SoCon implications and first weigh-in and match for a lot of wrestlers," head coach Rob Hjerling said "We're happy to be a part of the Homecoming weekend and this should be exciting way to start the season." The Bulldogs return 2015 NCAA National Championship qualifiers senior Matt Frisch and junior Aaron Walker as well as Joe Bexley, a 2015 Southern Conference finalist. Marshall Haas, the 2014 SoCon 197-lb champion also returns for his fifth year after going 20-15 overall last season. Frisch and Walker have already received SoCon honors this season as both were named to the Preseason All-Conference Team for their respective weight classes. Walker was also ranked 14th in the nation in the preseason by InterMat. The Bulldogs add five freshmen to this year's squad and only lost two seniors from a team that went 7-6 overall and 5-2 in the SoCon last season. In preseason voting, the team was picked third in the conference behind Chattanooga and Appalachian State.

9. Volleyball Mocs win 3-1 over The Citadel
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga volleyball team bounced back from a midweek loss at Samford and a first-set loss Friday to beat The Citadel 3-1 in a Southern Conference match in Maclellan Gym. The set scores were 23-25, 25-23, 25-16, 25-14 favoring the Mocs, who had three players with 14 kills - Kristy Wieser, Sarah Batterton and Briana Reid - to The Citadel's one, Bailey Kernodle. Laura Greenspoon had 55 assists and 12 digs and Miranda Elpers and Catherine Chason had 19 and 17 digs for UTC (21-5, 10-3). Reid added 10 digs. Samford won again Friday over Furman, 3-0, knocking the Paladins (16-7, 10-3) out of sole possession of first place. That makes Furman's match tonight at UTC a showdown of co-leaders. UNC Greensboro shares the top spot.

1. Retired Lt. Gen. John Rosa
Retired Lt. Gen. John W. Rosa Jr. entered the Air Force in May 1973 after receiving his commission from The Citadel, Charleston, S.C. Throughout his career, he served as an operations group commander and a wing commander three times. He also served as the deputy director for operations for the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Washington, D.C. In that position, he managed the National Military Command Center and was the military spokesman for the Pentagon when U.S. troops were deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. After this assignment, Rosa became the superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, Colo. where he directed a four-year academic, military, athletic and character development program where cadets earn a bachelor's degree and a commission as an Air Force officer. While at the academy, Rosa decided to retire from the Air Force but not from serving. Upon retirement, Rosa returned to Charleston to become the 19th president of his alma mater January 3, 2006. His concern for keeping The Citadel education relevant in the 21st century while upholding the values that make the college unique has strengthened the college in significant ways. Since Rosa became president, The Citadel has increased the size of the South Carolina Corps of Cadets to full capacity and completed a $100 million capital campaign -- two benchmarks of a vibrant institution.

2. Former Capt. Thomas McElveen
Former Capt. Thomas McElveen took the leadership skills he learned during his time in service and used them to create a successful career. McElveen earned a commission upon graduating as a Distinguished Air Force Graduate from The Citadel, Charleston, S.C. in 1968. From there he went on to graduate law school and entered the Air Force in 1972, as a First Lieutenant. After two months of training, McElveen arrived at his first and only duty station, Shaw Air Force Base, S.C. While assigned to the 363rd Combat Support Group, he worked as the Staff Judge Advocate and investigated several sonic boom claims. During his time at Shaw AFB he was mobilized to Seymour Johnson, AFB in Goldsboro, N.C., in support of an exercise which he recalled as his favorite experience from his time in the military. In 1975, two years after being promoted to captain, he was honorably discharged.

3. Citadel's Sam Frye, Mitchell Jeter are battling brothers on the line
The first time they met, Sam Frye tore Mitchell Jeter's helmet off. This was at a Citadel football camp five years ago, when both Frye and Mitchell were high school seniors hoping to secure college scholarships. "They put the best pass rusher against the best offensive blocker," recalls Mitchell, now a senior defensive tackle for the Bulldogs. "It ended up being me and Sam, and on the snap we hit each other. Next thing I know, he's got my helmet. And it's been like that ever since." Frye and Mitchell have been banging heads since that day, going one-on-one in drills over the past four years on The Citadel's practice field. Their matchups often ended in fights, formed the basis of a lasting friendship and drove each other to accomplishments they might not have achieved otherwise. The two seniors will be among 20 honored as they play their final regular-season home game Saturday against VMI.

6. Historical perspective on the Hokies' upcoming trip to Georgia Tech
Four days ago, Frank Beamer made the announcement that he plans to retire after this season. Now, he and his coaches are game planning for next Thursday night's game against Georgia Tech in Atlanta. The Hokies have played at Georgia Tech six times, but this season's game marks the 25th anniversary of the year in which Beamer coached against Georgia Tech for the first time as the Hokies' head coach - and against one of his mentors, Bobby Ross. In fact, Virginia Tech fans probably remember the game, a 6-3 contest won by the Yellow Jackets on Nov. 10, 1990. The Hokies led 3-0 in the fourth quarter, but Georgia Tech's Scott Sisson hit two field goals, the final coming with eight seconds left, to give Ross a victory over his pupil. Georgia Tech went on to win the ACC that season and claim a share of the national championship with an 11-0-1 record. Ross gave Beamer his first coaching job back in 1973. Beamer had been working as a graduate assistant at Maryland under his former college coach, Jerry Claiborne, who coached at Virginia Tech from 1961-70. Beamer took a job coaching the defensive line at The Citadel under Ross, who had been named the head coach at the Charleston, South Carolina, school earlier that year. Beamer coached with Ross for five seasons before Ross left to take the special teams coaching position with the Kansas City Chiefs. "I didn't hesitate [to hire Beamer], I'll tell you that," Ross said. "I wanted to get him right away. "I still remember a time when Frank reached a young man in our program at The Citadel. It was a boy named Kevin White. He helped that young man immensely, and I think that boy has gone on to great success. It all had to go back to this guy [Beamer]."

1. From City Hall to The Citadel's halls: Riley looks forward to slower pace
In fewer than 75 days, Charleston Mayor Joe Riley will pack up his City Hall office and look ahead to a much more relaxed schedule, one that doesn't include 15 daily meetings on top of contentious City Council meetings. Riley will retire as mayor and go back to the place that he said taught him the duty and honor he lives by: The Citadel. At his alma mater, Riley will mentor students, write a memoir, be interviewed for an oral history of his life and career, lecture on campus, help arrange guest lectures by other public servants and teach lessons learned during his tenure as mayor. The college's ultimate goal is to create an oral history leadership archive thoroughly documenting "The Riley Era." Life goes on: On Jan. 12 - the first day in 40 years Riley will not be mayor of Charleston - he will take the lessons he's learned and relationships he's built into a new chapter of life. "Well, I hope I don't by mistake walk up the steps of this building thinking I'm supposed to come, and then people would say, 'Poor fella,'" Riley said during an interview inside his City Hall office. "I've got a lot of things to sort out, so much stuff in here that will probably be in boxes." Riley said his first goal will be to get organized at The Citadel so he can begin writing his memoir, but he said he's facing a larger challenge. "The real adjustment is going to be the pace, because I know I've got 15 meetings a day and all these things going on," he said, picking up a crowded calendar. "I think that's the adjustment, and then I'll have some time to myself to do some other things."

2. Big spending didn't mean big turnout in Charleston mayor's race; campaigns size-up runoff
Charleston's mayoral race brought forth a record number of candidates and campaign spending, but it didn't yield a record turnout. Only one of every four registered voters in the city cast ballots Tuesday, a higher percent than voted in the city's previous mayoral race but nowhere near as high as other city elections. Despite a steady rain, Tuesday's 25 percent turnout still was low enough to surprise Gibbs Knotts, chairman of the College of Charleston's political science department. It's unclear what the turnout will be on Nov. 17, but it could be higher: All registered city voters may participate in that, regardless of whether they voted Tuesday. DuBose Kapeluck, a political science professor at The Citadel, said another factor dampening Charleston's turnout is that the city changed its election to a nonpartisan format. "Partisan races attract more turnout than nonpartisan races," he said, because party labels make it easier for voters to decide who to support.

6. Faulkner's fight opened doors for women in the military
Shannon Faulkner was in. Then she was out. Then she fought her way back in. Then a week later, she was out. Faulkner, a Powdersville native, made history as the first female cadet at The Citadel in August 1995, laying a foundation for women's futures in the military. Her battle with South Carolina's state military college began with an admissions fluke in 1993 that got her accepted. She was later turned down because of her gender, prompting her to file suit against The Citadel. It took more than a year and a judge's order to get Faulkner into the cadet corps while her case continued through the courts. But it only took four days of Charleston heat and what Faulkner cited as an "emotional catastrophe" of stress and isolation to cause her to back out. On Aug. 18, 1995, Faulkner dropped out of The Citadel. "When I left The Citadel, I was not me anymore," Faulkner said in an interview for CBS News' "48 Hours" in May 1996. "Emotionally, I didn't realize I wasn't prepared." In 1996, following a Supreme Court decision on Virginia Military Institute's all-male admissions policy, The Citadel officially resigned its all-male status and admitted four female cadets.

7a. The Citadel vs. VMI preview
It's all about the silver shako, and keeping it in Charleston. Saturday's game is the 71st meeting between the two military rivals with The Citadel leading the series 38-30-2.

1. The Riley Era: City Hall to The Citadel's halls
In about two months, Charleston Mayor Joe Riley will pack up his City Hall office and look ahead to a much more relaxed schedule, one that doesn't include 15 daily meetings on top of contentious City Council meetings. Riley will retire as mayor and go back to the place that he said taught him the duty and honor he lives by: The Citadel. At his alma mater, Riley will mentor students, write a memoir, be interviewed for an oral history of his life and career, lecture on campus, help arrange guest lectures by other public servants and teach lessons learned during his tenure as mayor. The college's ultimate goal is to create an oral history leadership archive thoroughly documenting "The Riley Era." Life goes on: On Jan. 12 - the first day in 40 years Riley will not be mayor of Charleston - he will take the lessons he's learned and relationships he's built into a new chapter of life. "Well, I hope I don't by mistake walk up the steps of this building thinking I'm supposed to come, and then people would say, 'Poor fella,'" Riley said during a recent interview inside his City Hall office. "I've got a lot of things to sort out, so much stuff in here that will probably be in boxes." Riley said his first goal will be to get organized at The Citadel so he can begin writing his memoir, but he said he's facing a larger challenge.

5a. Citadel football tunes out 'noise' of rankings, playoff scenarios
The Citadel football team escaped the purgatory of "others receiving votes" this week, breaking into the top 25 of the FCS coaches poll. The 6-2 Bulldogs, 5-0 in the Southern Conference for the first time in school history, came in at No. 22 in the poll, much to the satisfaction of Citadel players. "It meant a lot," senior offensive lineman Sam Frye said of the ranking, the Bulldogs' first since the 2012 season. "When everybody saw that yesterday, that we were in the top 25, it was pretty exciting for us to finally be a top 25 team." For Citadel coach Mike Houston, however, the ranking is more "noise" for his coaches and players to tune out as they focus on the task at hand - defeating VMI on Saturday and retaining the coveted Silver Shako, the trophy that goes to the winner of the annual "Military Classic of the South."

4. The Citadel Military College of South Carolina: The strict schedule and order a military college may not drum up scenes of an easy, breezy beach lifestyle. But the beaches outside Charleston, where The Citadel is located, are classic South Carolina lowcountry, with palmetto tress and miles of sand dunes. Students play intramural beach volleyball in the spring and compete on a club sailing team. The college even owns an oceanfront venue in the resort town of Isle of Palms.

3. Bayonet Thrust: Enabling allies through professional relationships
Paratroopers from the 173rd Airborne Brigade completed the final leg of Operation Bayonet Thrust, a week-long, multinational convoy after five months training in Lithuania, when they arrived at Caserma Ederle here, the evening of Oct. 30, 2015. But for the paratroopers of Company D, 1st Battalion, 503rd Infantry Regiment, the day started much earlier and more than 440 kilometers away with an engagement in Zagreb, Croatia, with allies from the Croatian army's 1st Mechanized Battalion, Guard Motorized Brigade; along with the U.S. ambassador to Croatia, and Croatian military and civil leaders. Along the long drive home, Company D conducted community engagements with forces from participating nations in order to provide a highly visible demonstration of the U.S.'s commitment to the people of each nation and to the NATO alliance. Croatian Maj. Zdenko Fiala the commander of the 1st Mechanized Battalion, is a product of such exchanges. Fiala attended high school in Alaska and then returned to the U.S. for his university education. "When I came back to Croatia from Alaska, I wanted to join the military, but at that time, we didn't have a military academy," said Fiala. "So I applied through the Ministry of Defense, and with the cooperation of the U.S. government, I went to The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina. I furthered my education in American culture and the Citadel made me the man I am today." Fiala was then commissioned into the Croatia army. As a young platoon leader, he got another chance to benefit from the U.S.-Croatian alliance when his platoon went to Camp Ripley, Minnesota, to train with the Minnesota Army National Guard, through the National Guard State Partnership Program. The SPP is a U.S. Department of Defense program that links U.S. states with partner countries around the world with the intent of supporting international security cooperation.

The fellows program is administered by the North Carolina Foundation for Advanced Health Programs with the goal of preparing future leaders to improve the health of rural and under-served communities.

"His passion for rural health and his attention toward the under-served citizens of North Carolina sparked a national movement and I will admirably represent Cumberland County and surrounding areas."

5. Sense of community important for Nelson County man
Every June, Kenny VanDerNoot and his wife Pettis hold what they now call "Yard Party" at their home in Faber. When it started about 20 years ago, it was intended just for family members. A year later, the VanDerNoot's started inviting friends, and then neighbors, and then other people they knew. The guest list grew to about 150 people. VanDerNoot even built a 40-square-foot grill to cook enough meat to feed every mouth. It's just the type of person Kenny VanDerNoot is. "Once you come, you're invited next year," he said. "We don't always send out invitations but once you've been invited to one, you're always invited." VanDerNoot serves as assistant chief for the Faber Volunteer Fire Department and takes the job seriously. A few years ago, he was handed a situation unlike any he had handled before. It wasn't a fire or a car wreck, but a woman was about to give birth at the fire station. He joined the Marines right out of high school because he knew there had to be something outside of his hometown of Point Pleasant, New Jersey, where he remembers surfing hurricanes out on the beach. He describes himself as an "original Jersey boy." Stationed at Parris Island, VanDerNoot decided he would stay in South Carolina, find work and take a few classes at the local colleges. Though he has no degree, he took classes at the College of Charleston, The Citadel and University of Southern California.

6a. The Citadel Football team is 5-0 in SoCon for the first time in school history
The Citadel football team edged Mercer 21-19 on Saturday afternoon at Johnson Hagood Stadium, sealing the Bulldogs' first 5-0 start to SoCon play in program history. The Citadel paired an explosive offensive second quarter with a suffocating second-half defense to preserve its unblemished conference record and improve to 11-0 under head coach Mike Houston when scoring at least 21 points. The Citadel is now 8-4-1 all-time against Mercer and 2-0 during Coach Houston's tenure. The Bulldogs racked up 376 total rushing yards in the victory as three different backs totaled 97 yards or more on the ground. Sophomore Cam Jackson led all rushers with a season-high 109 yards while junior Tyler Renew added a season-high total of 107 yards and sophomore Isiaha Smith gained 97 yards. Trailing 10-0 heading into the second quarter, The Citadel found the end zone on back-to-back possessions to regain momentum and seize a halftime lead. With 8:20 left in the second quarter, the Bulldogs engineered an 11-play, 80-yard scoring drive that featured six tough runs by Renew. It culminated with a two-yard touchdown run by sophomore Reggie Williams to slice the deficit to 10-7.

Charleston Southern moved into the top 15 and The Citadel broke into the top 25 in the FCS coaches' poll released Monday. CSU's 33-25 win over then No. 1-ranked Coastal Carolina vaulted the Bucs up six spots to No. 13 with a 7-1 overall record, 4-0 in the Big South. Coastal Carolina (7-1, 2-1) fell to No. 8. The Citadel, meanwhile, is ranked for the first time since the 2012 season at No. 22. The Bulldogs defeated Mercer, 21-19, last week to improve to 6-2 overall. The Citadel is 5-0 in the SoCon for the first time in school history. The Citadel and No. 3 Chattanooga (7-1, 5-0) will play for the SoCon championship on Nov. 14 in Chattanooga, regardless of the outcomes of this week's games. The Citadel is at home against VMI, while Chattanooga travels to Mercer. If the Bulldogs and Mocs have the same result this week, the Nov. 14 game will be for the outright SoCon title and automatic bid to the FCS playoffs. If one team wins and the other loses this week, the losing team could still claim a share of the league title with a win on Nov. 14.

Southeastern University's wrestling team wasted no time in making some history. Former George Jenkins grappler Ethan Owen helped usher in the return of active scholarship wrestling to Florida with a win in the 133-pound weight class at The Citadel Open in Charleston, S.C., on Sunday. Not only did Owen claim the school's first individual title, he got the first pin when he defeated Limestone's Kyle Lowe in 1:03 in Owens' first match of the tournament. Owen then grabbed a 6-1 technical fall victory before taking down Gardener-Webb junior Phillip Anderson with a 3-0 decision to win the title. "I just wanted to treat it like another tournament," Owen said in a press release. "I didn't want to be intimidated by anyone and just wrestling who's in front of me. In the final bout, I knew I had to ride him out. I probably wasn't going to take him down. After feeling him out in the first period, I could tell he was going to be tough to score on. I wanted to get the escape and get the riding time point and I felt I'd be good."

3. A mayor's perspective: 40 years of changing Charleston
Joseph P. Riley Jr. rushed to get his holiday shopping finished on Christmas Eve in 1975. He parked his car and hurried up to King Street, where he stopped short. The street was completely devoid of pedestrians and shoppers. A few stores were open, but most were boarded-up or empty. "I looked up the street. I looked up the side streets. There was nobody there on the busiest shopping day of the year," Riley said. "That's what had happened to King Street." The Lower King Street of Riley's youth in the 1940s and 1950s was known across the state as a shopping destination. But by the 1970s, King Street was like many other main streets around the country: Few shops remained, many storefronts were vacant and crime was high. White flight had moved many downtown residents to the suburbs, where big-box stores and cookie-cutter neighborhoods flourished. Cities around the country were on the decline as suburban sprawl took root. At age 32, Riley was a graduate of Bishop England High School, The Citadel and The University of South Carolina School of Law. He was an attorney and had served six years as a S.C. representative. Running a mayoral campaign was not part of his ambitions. Riley said he decided to run at the urging of many residents. They wanted a leader to unite a divided city whose wounds were still raw as it emerged from decades of the Jim Crow-era segregation and discrimination that had defined the South.

4. War, Big Government, and Lost Freedom
We are currently marking the hundredth anniversary of the fighting of the First World War. For four years between the summer of 1914 and November 11, 1918, the major world powers were in mortal combat with each other. The conflict radically changed the world. It overthrew the pre-1914 era of relatively limited government and free market economics, and ushered in a new epoch of big government, planned economies, and massive inflations, the full effects from which the world has still not recovered. All the leading countries of Europe were drawn into the war. It began when the archduke of Austria-Hungary, Franz Ferdinand, and his wife, Sophia, were assassinated in Bosnia in June 1914. The Austro-Hungarian government claimed that the Bosnian-Serb assassin had the clandestine support of the Serbian government, which the government in Belgrade denied. Dr. Richard M. Ebeling is the BB&T Professor of Ethics and Free Enterprise Leadership at The Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina.

6. A Fateful Collision 30 Years Ago Transformed Two Lives
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. Jacobs'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 had lain numb on the field: He was 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 that third-down play of 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."

7a. Allen's TD gives The Citadel 21-19 win over Mercer
Dominique Allen's 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter provided The Citadel with the cushion it needed to hold off Mercer 21-19 on Saturday. A pair of sacks forced Mercer (3-5, 0-4 Southern) to punt from its 7-yard line and a 12-yard return by DeAndre Schoultz set the Bulldogs up at the Bears 38. Seven plays later Allen scored for a 21-13 lead. Mercer responded with a 75-yard drive with Alex Lakes plunging in from the 1. However, the Bears' pass for the 2-point conversion was incomplete and The Citadel (6-2, 5-0) was able to run out the clock. The Citadel is 5-0 in the Southern Conference for the first time, tied with Chattanooga.

7b. At Citadel, 'culture shift' led to Bulldogs' surge
Veteran Citadel players such as Vinny Miller and Joe Crochet have lived through the changes. They were recruited by one head coach and his assistants, and are playing out their college football careers under another set of coaches. They describe the difference as a "culture shift," and it's one that has the 5-2 Bulldogs at 4-0 in the Southern Conference for the first time since 1979, and taking dead aim at a first SoCon title and FCS playoff bid since 1979. The next obstacle is Saturday's 2 p.m. game against Mercer (3-4, 0-3) at Johnson Hagood Stadium. "When the new coaches came in, you could definitely feel a culture shift," said redshirt junior defensive end Crochet. "It was that extra 'umph' to accelerate us to where we are today." Bulldogs upperclassmen were recruited and signed by former coach Kevin Higgins, who had a record of 43-58 in nine seasons at The Citadel before leaving in December 2013 to become assistant head coach at Wake Forest.

7c. The Citadel holds on for 21-19 win over Mercer
The Citadel football team edged Mercer 21-19 on Saturday afternoon at Johnson Hagood Stadium, sealing the Bulldogs' first 5-0 start to SoCon play in program history. The Citadel paired an explosive offensive second quarter with a suffocating second-half defense to preserve its unblemished conference record and improve to 11-0 under head coach Mike Houston when scoring at least 21 points. The Citadel is now 8-4-1 all-time against Mercer and 2-0 during Coach Houston's tenure. The Bulldogs racked up 376 total rushing yards in the victory as three different backs totaled 97 yards or more on the ground. Sophomore Cam Jackson led all rushers with a season-high 109 yards while junior Tyler Renew added a season-high total of 107 yards and sophomore Isiaha Smith gained 97 yards. Trailing 10-0 heading into the second quarter, The Citadel found the end zone on back-to-back possessions to regain momentum and seize a halftime lead. With 8:20 left in the second quarter, the Bulldogs engineered an 11-play, 80-yard scoring drive that featured six tough runs by Renew. It culminated with a two-yard touchdown run by sophomore Reggie Williams to slice the deficit to 10-7.

7d. Citadel holds off Mercer, 21-19, to go 5-0 in SoCon for first time
It was a former Citadel assistant coach who coined the phrase, "Just win, baby." The late Al Davis, who achieved some renown in the NFL, could have appreciated the Bulldogs' 21-19 win over Mercer before 10,006 fans at Johnson Hagood Stadium on Saturday. After a series of pretty Southern Conference wins, the Bulldogs won ugly against luckless Mercer, overcoming two turnovers and some sketchy special teams play to improve to 6-2 overall and 5-0 in the SoCon for the first time in school history. The Bulldogs had to hold off a 2-point try by Mercer (3-5, 0-4) with 3:12 left, then recover an onside kick and run out the clock to get their fourth straight win.

7e. Small colleges: Charleston Southern tops FCS No. 1 Coastal Carolina
Dominique Allen's 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter provided The Citadel with the cushion it needed. A pair of sacks forced Mercer (3-5, 0-4 Southern Conference) to punt from its 7-yard line and a 12-yard return by former South Aiken standout DeAndre Schoultz set the Bulldogs up at the Bears 38. Seven plays later Allen scored for a 21-13 lead. Mercer responded with a 75-yard drive with Alex Lakes plunging in from the 1. However, the Bears' pass for the 2-point conversion was incomplete and The Citadel (6-2, 5-0) was able to run out the clock. The Citadel is 5-0 in the Southern Conference for the first time.

7f. Mercer goes back to basics against The Citadel
After three difficult losses in the past four weeks - all three in Southern Conference play - the Mercer Bears have gone back to basics this week. That includes getting back to a run-first mentality the team has built its offense of since its inception two years ago. Mercer will see if that plan works Saturday when it travels to Charleston, South Carolina, to face The Citadel. "We just didn't play well, didn't make good decisions on anything," Mercer head coach Bobby Lamb said of the team's loss to VMI last week. "We have got to get back to basics, which is running the ball, blocking our guy and getting back to our offense, and our brand is to run the ball and to go with play-action passes." Mercer is 3-4 overall and 0-3 in conference play. The Bulldogs have won three straight games to get to 5-2 overall and 4-0 in the conference. The Citadel is tied with Chattanooga for first place in the conference.

8. Bulldogs Drop Five-Set Thriller
Junior Samantha Espy shattered The Citadel's single-season dig record as the squad fell to Western Carolina on Friday evening in McAlister Field House. "I am really proud of the growth this team has made," head coach Craig Mosqueda said. "We played at such a high level tonight but unfortunately we made a few too many errors." The Bulldogs (7-20, 0-10 SoCon) earned a 25-23 win in the first set before dropping the second and third, 27-25 each. The blue and white took the next set before ultimately falling to Western Carolina in the fifth, 15-10. "I thought we did a great job of keeping Western out of system for most of the match with our aggressive serving and our improving offense. There are more good things are on the horizon," Mosqueda said. Junior Sam Espy posted a team-high 25 digs to break The Citadel's all-time record of digs in a single season. The libero now has 446 digs, while the previous record was 421.

9. Frank Beamer Announces His Retirement at Conclusion of 2015 Season
Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer announced Sunday his intention to retire upon the conclusion of the 2015 season. Beamer informed Virginia Tech officials, his players and coaches today. "I have always said that 'I want what is best for Virginia Tech,'" Beamer said. "Because of my love and passion for this great university, this program and our tremendous fans, I have decided after 29 years that it's time. Today, I informed Dr. Timothy Sands and Whit Babcock of my decision to retire at the conclusion of the 2015 season. Beamer's illustrious coaching career began as an assistant at Radford High School from 1969 through 1971. Then, after one season as a graduate assistant at the University of Maryland, he went to The Citadel where he worked five seasons under Bobby Ross and one year under Art Baker. His last two years at The Citadel, Beamer was the defensive coordinator. In 1979, he went to Murray State as the defensive coordinator under Mike Gottfried. He was named head coach at MSU in 1981 and went on to compile a six-year record of 42-23-2. He is married to the former Cheryl Oakley of Richmond, Virginia. They have two children, Shane, a former member of his father's football team at Virginia Tech and now the associate head coach/running backs coach at Virginia Tech; and daughter Casey, a 2003 graduate of Tech. He has four grandchildren, Sutton, Olivia and Hunter, children of Shane and his wife, Emily. Casey, who married former Virginia Tech wrestler Canaan Prater in 2012, had her first son, Hudson, in February.
