Despite entering the game as a 25-point underdog, the Bucs ultimately dropped the Southern Conference opener, 31-25, but had a final offensive possession with a chance to win late in the game.

After almost drowning while kayaking the Chattooga River, Donald “Doc” Sanborn needed a way to help him remember every single extraordinary detail of that day so he began writing.

3. What Happens When an Entire Campus Is Rooted in the Confederacy?

The start of classes was just a week away when white supremacists clashed with counterprotesters in Charlottesville. The town that is home to the University of Virginia is now synonymous with American carnage. At the heart of the August 12 riot that left one young woman dead sat Robert E. Lee atop his horse. The city had decided to remove the monument, one of many dating to the early 20th-century "vindication era" of memorialization. It hadn't intended to ignite a proxy war over America’s racial sins nor to re-enlist Dixie’s ghosts on the side of white supremacy...Mississippi may like to be last, but South Carolina remembers who was first: first to secede from the Union—and in the case of Charleston’s military college, the Citadel, the first to take hostile shots at a Yankee armament. “It's everywhere you go,” Citadel history professor Kyle Sinisi described the Confederacy's hold on his campus and culture.

6f. LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Faux history about the Civil War

I get tired of seeing faux history in the letters section of the Morning News. The latest example is John Bethea's Sept. 12 letter blaming Democrats for being mostly for slavery during the Civil War era while Republicans were against it. That statement overlooks a whole lot of Democrats in the North and West who joined the Union Army and had crossed party lines to vote for Mr. Lincoln. He also incorrectly states "Slavery ... was legal nationwide at the time."...He also states that the war started because Mr. Lincoln refused to withdraw Union troops from Fort Sumter, which he states was "(Southern land)" but it was in fact federal land. Also, while many in this region refer to the Civil War as "The War of Northern Aggression," the actual aggression was when cadets from my alma mater, The Citadel, fired on the ship Star of the West, which was trying to supply the fort and then when South Carolina batteries fired on the fort itself. That is aggression.

5a. The Citadel winning with two quarterbacks

Running the triple option-offense can be as easy as A, B and C: Dominque Allen, Jordan Black and The Citadel. You’re probably familiar with the quote-turned-adage that if you have two quarterbacks then you have none. That’s far from being reality at The Citadel, which is combining senior starter Dominique Allen and sophomore Jordan Black for a run at a third straight Southern Conference title.

2a. Ludwig von Mises and the Real Meaning of Liberalism

Liberalism has become one of the most widely misused and abused words in the American political lexicon. It represents, some say, politically “progressive thought,” based on the goal of “social justice” through greater “distributive justice” for all. Others declare it represents moral relativism, political paternalism, governmental license, and just another word for “socialism.” Lost in all of this is that fact that historically “liberalism” originally meant, and continues to mean for some, individual freedom, private property, free enterprise and impartial rule of law under constitutionally limited government.

The Savannah River Site, in South Carolina, is home to the radioactive fuel that powers hydrogen bombs. It's one of the most important nuclear facilities in the United States, and right now the workers who keep it safe are on strike...The differences between the two sides have resulted in a strike that's now several weeks old, which is notable for several reasons, not the least of which is that South Carolina is one of the most anti-union states in the country. "South Carolina's about as unfriendly to organized labor as you can get," said Kerry Taylor, a labor historian and professor at the Citadel. "This has been official policy to keep wages low and keep unions out. It's built into the structure of the economy."

2b. Op-Ed: Canada's quixotic attempt to use NAFTA to end U.S. 'right to work' laws

President Trump has repeatedly attacked the North American Free Trade Agreement, calling it the “worst trade deal ever negotiated.” Angry about the U.S. trade deficit with Mexico, he warned that unless Mexico and Canada agreed to revamp NAFTA to his liking, he’d tear it up...There is no denying that right-to-work laws weaken unions, often discouraging them from undertaking unionization campaigns. Russel Sobel, an economics professor at the Citadel, found that the share of free riders in right-to-work states ranged from 9% in Georgia to 39% in South Dakota. If 39% of workers refuse to pay union dues, that’s a hefty hit to a union’s treasury, and perhaps to its ability to mount a strike or get out the vote.

I am writing this letter because most good people in our country don't get enough recognition for a job well done! Most of the news on TV is bad news, not good. We work for 30 years and do a good job but very little recognition comes from the public or supervisors. We do the good work for self pride, and nothing else!I've served in the military for over 22 years. I graduated from The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina, as a 2nd Lt. and then served in the Armor branch of the Army on active duty and reserves. For 15 of those years, my Team had the honor of evaluating battalion size, armor, National Guard units across the United States, to see if they were combat ready for action! My recommendations went to Washington and was one of the final criteria a battalion had to pass, to be qualified for combat readiness.

3a. Debunking the Myth of a “Liberal Socialism” Utopia

Very often bad and failed ideas do not die, they simply reappear during periods of supposed social and political crisis in slightly different intellectual garb, and offer “solutions” that would merely help to bring about some of the very types of crises for which they once again claim to have the answers. Socialism in its various “progressive” mutations represents one of the leading so-called solutions of our time.

5. For Citadel football's new starters, a solid debut; coach wants better crowd

Citadel football coach Brent Thompson graded the Bulldogs' offense at about a "C-" after Saturday's 31-14 win over Newberry. That might sound a bit harsh since the Bulldogs piled up 374 rushing yards, 454 total yards and more than 35 minutes of possession time against a Division II team that won 10 games last year. But after viewing the film of The Citadel's season opener, Thompson said his initial impression was about right.
