1. The Citadel has some fun on Twitter at No. 1 Alabama's expense after entering halftime tied
At halftime Saturday in Bryant-Denny Stadium, The Citadel and No. 1 Alabama were tied, 10-10. That's not a typo. The Bulldogs, members of the Division I Football Championship Subdivision and the Southern Conference, made the 500-mile trip from Charleston to Tuscaloosa and had the Tide on the ropes at home. Five different players ran the ball for The Citadel in the opening 30 minutes of play, including Dante Smith, who became the first player to score against Alabama in the month of November. The Bulldogs didn't throw a single pass in the first two quarters. Bulldogs players weren't the only ones having fun. The Citadel's Twitter account might be having the best performance of the day. After Alabama boasted about "No score November," The Citadel responded, and then took a shot at both Mississippi State and LSU. he Tide fumbled the kickoff to start the second half, and the Bulldogs failed to take the lead, missing a 45-yard field goal. Alabama marched 72 yards down the field, scoring in five plays to re-take the lead. If The Citadel is unable to keep it close, it was fun while it lasted.

2. The Citadel is throwing shade at Alabama, LSU and Mississippi State as it battles the Tide
No. 1 Alabama isn't exactly taking care of business against The Citadel, and The Citadel's Twitter account is making sure that the whole world -- including a couple other SEC teams -- knows it. Dante Smith scored from 45 yards out in the second quarter to tie the game at seven and make Citadel the first team to score against the Crimson Tide since Tennessee did it on Oct. 20. The Crimson Tide shut out LSU and Mississippi State consecutively prior to Saturday's game vs. these Bulldogs. The Citadel made sure to point that out to LSU and MSU on Twitter. The Bulldogs had 150 rushing yards and didn't attempt a pass in the first half against the Crimson Tide. The Citadel Twitter account has been going strong all day. After winning the opening toss, it made sure to count that as a win.

3. The guy behind The Citadel’s savage Twitter account explains the strategy
From his third-row seat in the Bryant-Denny Stadium press box, Parker King set the college football internet ablaze. He said he’s “just a graphic designer,” but King was the name behind The Citadel football team’s Twitter account that went viral during the 50-17 loss at Alabama. The regimented military school let its hair down Saturday in Tuscaloosa and the masses noticed. “It’s been pretty surreal,” King said after the game in the room just off from the small visitors’ locker room in Bryant-Denny Stadium. “We knew if our players came in here and performed the way we knew they could, we would have a small window of essentially going viral on Twitter. We had a good plan that if we performed, we’d be ready. And we’d be willing to take some shots at some people in the SEC.” They sure did. Their big tweet of the day followed a second-quarter touchdown that tied the score 7-7. It ended Alabama’s shutout streak that covered both the LSU and Mississippi State wins and King was well aware.

3.1 WATCH: The Citadel calls its shot against No. 1 Alabama in uniform hype video

The only real story of interest for No. 1 Alabama as it takes on The Citadel Saturday is how long quarterback Tua Tagovailoa plays seeing as the Heisman Trophy's consensus frontrunner has been battling knee and quad injuries. Still, The Citadel is not interested in playing dead for 60 minutes -- not when it can shoot its shot and talk a little smack in the process. In a uniform unveil video for the upcoming game, the FCS program not only said it wanted Bama, it took a nice little dig at South Carolina in the process. Because why ruffle the feathers of one SEC team when you can do it for two teams? he highlights are courtesy of The Citadel's 23-22 win over the Gamecocks from this time three years ago in Columbia, South Carolina. Granted, South Carolina went 3-9 that year and coach Steve Spurrier resigned midseason. Playing the No. 1 team in the country, which has been winning games by a margin of 36 points per game, is a little different.

4. The Best Universities For a Bachelor’s Degree
Choosing a college isn’t a simple task – you want to pick a school that will challenge you intellectually and provide you with life experiences that help you grow as a person. But unless you want to live in your parents’ basement for the rest of your life, you also want to pick a school that prepares you for a successful career, both in terms of getting hired and equipping you with the skills to properly do your job. Not to mention the fact that the cost of college is higher than ever, and repaying financial aid can be costly later in life. PayScale’s College Salary Report has ranked colleges and universities by the median salaries of their alumni. By knowing how much you can expect to earn after getting your bachelor’s degree, you can choose a school wisely and set yourself up for future financial security, especially when evaluating how much to borrow to help pay for your education.

5. Public colleges where graduates earn over $55K right out of school

Despite an improving economy, finding a well-paying job after getting a college degree remains a challenge. The recession decimated the economy in the late 2000s, which led to thousands of companies outsourcing or automating the entry-level jobs that once served to help recent grads start climbing the career ladder. Older, unemployed professionals applied for many of these so-called entry-level positions, resulting in stiff competition within the job pool. Many entry-level positions now require three years experience or more working in-field. Some have turned to unpaid internships to get the experience needed to land their dream job, but many argue that forcing people to work without pay exploits their labor.

6. Presidential Hubris: “Let Me Run the Country”

The television news cycle and social media have been filled with comments and criticisms concerning the combative exchange of words between the current president and CNN reporter James Acosta during a recent White House press conference. What seemingly received little or no attention were the words that Donald Trump used in describing his role as the president of the United States during the drama of that press conference. Mr. Acosta wanted to know why the president viewed as an “invasion” the caravan of Central Americans moving through Mexico toward the U.S. border, rather than as simply a group of migrants on their way to the United States; and he wanted to know if this was not demonizing those people who were still hundreds of miles away from the United States. President Trump never directly answered the reporter’s question, other than to say that that was how he viewed it and it was a matter of differing opinions. Trump did say that he was not against migration to the United States as long as people come in legally to fill jobs needing to be done, given that hundreds of businesses were said also to be coming to America.

8. Best of Week 12: The Citadel loses big, wins bigger on Twitter
Dave Wilson is an editor for ESPN.com since 2010. He previously worked at The Dallas Morning News, San Diego Union-Tribune and Las Vegas Sun. Welcome to Week 12. It's a good week to take it easy and watch some football, before next week when you're going to be taking it easy, watching football AND eating a ton. Moderation is the key. Today's game against Alabama was a big opportunity for The Citadel, a military college with about 2,300 undergrad students, who make up the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. But despite a 50-17 loss -- it was 10-10 at halftime! -- it turned out to be an even bigger opportunity for their Twitter account to mock the rest of the SEC. Before the game, they taunted South Carolina Corps of Cadets. But despite a 50-17 loss -- it was 10-10 at halftime! -- it turned out to be an even bigger opportunity for their Twitter account to mock the rest of the SEC. Before the game, they taunted South Carolina, reminding them of their 23-22 victory over them in 2015.

8.1 Citadel 1st half at Alabama reminds Georgia of Georgia Tech option challenge

Georgia football probably didn’t need a reminder of just how challenging its game will be against rival Georgia Tech next Saturday, but The Citadel provided it, anyway. The Citadel, an FCS military school from Charleston, S.C., played No. 1-ranked Alabama to a 10-10 tie through the first half on Saturday in Tuscaloosa because of its disciplined option-style offense. Alabama won the game, 50-17, but not before The Citadel had made a statement. The No. 5-ranked Bulldogs play host to the rival Yellow Jackets — an FBS school with bigger, better talent than The Citadel — at noon next Saturday at Sanford Stadium looking to keep their College Football Playoff hopes alive. Georgia designates practice time each week to Georgia Tech’s option attack, but the discipline style it requires is unlike any other team the Bulldogs play. The precise timing of the pitch and ability of defenders to handle low, sometimes dangerous cut blocks, make playing an option team a headache for most defenses.

Charleston Southern must beat Campbell to extend streak of winning seasons

Charleston Southern can’t win a conference championship and won’t be playing in the FCS playoffs, but the Bucs still have something big to play for. CSU has posted five consecutive winning seasons and would like to stretch that streak to six. The Bucs carry a 4-5 record into Saturday’s game at Campbell University and then play at The Citadel on Nov. 29 to wrap up their season. The math is simple. Win the next two games and finish the season at 6-5. CSU (2-2 in the Big South) is coming off one of its most impressive games of the season, a 16-0 shutout of Gardner-Webb last Saturday. Despite failing to reach 300 total yards in offense for the eighth time this season, the CSU defense had its best outing with seven sacks and 11 tackles for loss. Campbell (6-4, 1-3) is transitioning into the Big South Conference in football this fall. The Camels, under the direction of former Carolina Panthers safety Mike Minter, picked up their first league win last week against Presbyterian. Campbell is 0-2 against Charleston Southern, losing games in 2013 and 2014. CSU’s senior players are 35-14 over the last five seasons and want to end their conference career on a positive note. They also would love to enter the game against The Citadel on a two-game winning streak.

1. The Citadel and the Royal Navy pay tribute to submarine used during World War II

On Veterans Day, The Citadel and the visiting officers from the Royal Navy payed tribute to a British submarine that was critical for the United States and the United Kingdom during World War II. Navy ROTC cadets and Navy ROTC active duty professors were joined by British officers who took part in a wreath laying ceremony commemorating the submarine, the HMS Seraph. The ceremony marked the 76th anniversary of a mission during the war called "Operation Torch" during which it carried General Mark Clark, the 12th president of The Citadel. "We've had the great delight and privilege of coming to Charleston for four days," said Commander William King, of the Royal Navy. "And as part of that visit, we established links with The Citadel and we've come to commemorate this old submarine that was so critical in the second world war for both of our countries."

3. The Citadel working to make archives accessible online

A dedicated team of students, volunteers and interns is helping people around the world see the treasures held in The Citadel military college’s archives. “This website has been a long time coming,” school archivist Tessa Updike said. She has made it her mission to digitize and place as much material as possible online. “I saw the need immediately for us to put all of those digital materials, all of that digital content available for The Citadel into one place where it could be cataloged, searched and browsed.” Some of the materials were previously available online through the Lowcountry Digital Library managed by the College of Charleston. “The history of The Citadel is fascinating to a lot of people around the world so we have a lot of researchers who are using our materials, studying not only the history of our institution but also people who are connected with our institution,” Updike said. With the help of volunteers, the Student Museum Club and academic interns, letters, diaries, directories, photos, and academic papers are being uploaded for digital access. Updike said previously, researchers had to visit The Citadel in order to access items such as college publications and early records commonly used in genealogy research.

4. The Citadel topic at Sumter County Genealogical Society

The Citadel, South Carolina's storied military college, will be the topic at 7:30 p.m. Monday, when Julian Frasier is the guest speaker for the Sumter County Genealogical Society.

President Trump accused Mr. Acosta of being rude and horrible, especially in his conduct toward the White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. The president also repeated his often-made claim that CNN is the disseminator of “fake news.”

College football kickoff Week 12: SEC pauses in the homestretch
It’s time for a breather. At least in a healthy chunk of the SEC, anyway. As is recent custom, the penultimate weekend of the regular season means a step outside of conference play for more than half of the conference. The league’s spotlight game on CBS this week is Missouri-Tennessee. It’s logistically easier to pull off than in other conferences because the SEC plays an eight-game league schedule, unlike the nine-game conference slates in the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12. It’s pragmatically brilliant, because it is designed to spread out the demands of conference play and (theoretically) provides a chance for teams to get breathers the week before rivalry showdowns. Hence, Alabama is playing host to The Citadel, Florida meets Idaho and South Carolina encounters Chattanooga in late-season games against FCS schools.

Frierson hits 10 3s, sparks The Citadel to 137-60 romp
Matt Frierson scored 30 points on 10 3-pointers, Lew Stallworth scored 13 points with 13 assists and The Citadel raced away from Johnson University 137-60 Wednesday night. Six Bulldogs scored in double figures in the lopsided contest. Zane Najdawi scored 18 points, making 10 of 10 at the foul line, Haden Brown added 15, Connor Kern 14 points with three 3-pointers, and Kaiden Rice added 11. Frierson finished one point shy of his career best, and his 10 treys matches teammate Quayson Williams for the program record. The Citadel shot 55 percent (47-85) with 18 3-pointers while Johnson, a small Christian university, made 20 of 76 shots (26 percent). The Bulldogs scored 40 points off 25 Johnson turnovers, out-rebounded Johnson 62-39 and held a 56-26 advantage on points in the paint. Anthony Young led the Suns with 11 points.

In the SEC, November just means more cupcakes but the empty calories haven't hurt at all
Nick Saban resisted the temptation – and we all know it lurked somewhere inside – to erupt this week. We knew the questions were coming. He knew the questions were coming. Someone had the temerity to ask Saban whether, given Tua Tagovailoa’s gimpy knee, he might rest the sophomore quarterback Saturday against The Citadel? “No. … No,” Saban told reporters Monday. “Why would we do that? I mean (are you trying) to say this is not an important game or he doesn’t need to play?” Well, yes. That’s exactly what they were saying – but Saban was finished; he left the room. It was good stuff, though. Even if it was mild by his standards,it was as predictable as th annual November date against an overmatched nonconference opponent.elcome, y’all, to the SEC’s Cupcake Weekend. While other leagues are fighting it out for conference titles (and College Football Playoff hopes), the SEC carves out time for a breather from the grind of a long season before the final push. Yeah, there are three conference games. But Alabama plays The Citadel. Georgia hosts Massachusetts. Florida has Idaho. South Carolina gets Chattanooga. Beyond those FCS opponents, it’s Rice at LSU, Liberty at Auburn and Alabama-Birmingham at Texas A&M (though that one is at least intriguing).

Previewing Alabama versus The Citadel: The Bulldog defense
When Alabama steps on the field Saturday against The Citadel, there’ll be little surprise in the course of things to come. The Tide will march down the field on the Bulldogs for the first few series, sit the starters in preparation for next week’s Iron Bowl, and let the reserves get those much-needed reps in against a thoroughly overmatched opponent. Schematically, the Bulldogs run a tricky defense, but it’s nothing like the units the Tide sees week in and week out in the SEC. Defensive coordinator Blake Harrell does a good job with what he has, and against the Citadel’s usual foes, they fare well enough. But against Alabama, the Bulldog defense will be little more than traffic cones on the Tide’s road to championship glory, as The Citadel is an opponent that simply can’t contend with Alabama’s offensive might (whether Tua Tagovailoa plays or not.) The Bulldogs run an interesting system that is built to stop the run and is adequate in that respect. The same can’t be said about the pass defense, as they give up almost 260 yards per game through the air. The front is a unique hybrid that features a four-man alignment with a dedicated hand-in-the-dirt linebacker called the KAT in the Citadel’s vernacular. They also repurpose on of their ‘backers as a rover-type hybrid safety they call the Bandit.

During the summer run-up to the season, Athlon Sports ranked “the most shameful college football games of 2018.” No. 4 on the list: The Citadel at Alabama. “Once again, the Crimson Tide are dining on a cupcake a week ahead of the Iron Bowl,” the writer opined. “Alabama could play all second- and third-stringers and still win this one comfortably. The Citadel went just 5-6 a year ago after winning back-to-back Southern Conference titles.” Thing is, he’s not wrong. Alabama coach Nick Saban insisted this week that he would play Heisman Trophy candidate Tua Tagovailoa at quarterback against The Citadel, despite a balky knee. Truth is, the No. 1-ranked and defending national champion Crimson Tide might beat the Bulldogs with Saban himself at QB. That’s the difference between one of the richest FBS programs in the nation (Alabama athletics earned $174 million in 2017) and an FCS program such as The Citadel, with an athletics budget of 17.6 million in 2017, according to USA Today. Alabama gives 85 football scholarships and has 63 four and five-star recruits on its 2018 roster, according to 24/7 Sports. The Citadel is limited to 63 scholarships and has zero four and five-star recruits. The huge disparities between the programs begs the question: Why play the game? The answer, as usual, has to do with money.

1. Car tires and brake pads produce harmful microplastics

There’s a big problem where the rubber meets the road: microplastics. Scientists analyzed more than 500 small particles pulled from the air around three busy German highways, and found that the vast majority — 89 percent — came from vehicle tires, brake systems and roads themselves. All together, these particles are classified by the researchers as microplastics, though they include materials other than plastic. Those particles get blown by wind and washed by rain into waterways that lead to the ocean, where the debris can harm aquatic animals and fragile ecosystems, says environmental scientist Reto Gieré of the University of Pennsylvania. He presented the findings on November 6 at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America in Indianapolis. Previous research has estimated that about 30 percent of the volume of microplastics polluting oceans, lakes and rivers come from tire wear. “We all want to reduce CO2 emissions” from vehicle exhaust, Gieré says. “But you can’t stop tire abrasion.” Traffic congestion makes the problem worse. Vehicles traveling at constant speeds, without so much brake use, produced fewer particles, the researchers found. Because some materials, including synthetic rubber, become coated in dust and other tinier bits of debris, they’re not always easy to identify. The researchers figured out what each particle was by examining each of them under a scanning electron microscope and running chemical analyses. “These [tire] particles are stealthy,” says John Weinstein, an environmental toxicologist at the Citadel in Charleston, S.C., who was not involved in the study.

2. The Lasting Legacies of World War I

This November marks the 90th anniversary of the end of World War I. The war ushered in a period of big government and paper money inflations. The most devastating examples were the hyperinflations in postwar Germany and Austria. The world still is under the influence of those same ideas of government paternalism and monetary central planning.

New Citadel players Kern, Stallworth settle in as Bulldogs win home opener
“Shoot it!” Citadel basketball coach Duggar Baucom yelled when new shooting guard Connor Kern turned down a semi-open 3-pointer during a 148-75 win over non-Division I foe Mid-Atlantic Christian on Monday night. “Attack!” Baucom urged when new point guard Lew Stallworth pulled the ball out to reset the offense. Kern and Stallworth, grad-student transfers new to the Bulldogs’ roster, will be key to any success The Citadel enjoys in Baucom’s fourth season as they adjust to their new coach’s fast-paced, 3-point happy offense. Kern, a 6-4 guard from Arkansas State, scored 12 points in his first game at McAlister Field House, hitting 2 of 5 from 3-point range. Stallworth, who transferred from Texas-Rio Grande Valley, stuffed his stat sheet with 11 points, seven assists and six rebounds as The Citadel (1-1) set a school record for most points in a game.

When dark falls, the people of a Matthews neighborhood listen for the lonely military call that signals a days’ end: A bugler playing Taps. “I keep track of what time the sun goes down, step out on my front porch and play,” said former Army Reservist Don Woodside. “If I forget to play, I get phone calls from neighbors — ‘Are you sick?’” There are stories within the story, this Veterans Day, of Woodside’s bugling. They’re tales of loss and remembrance that begin before World War II, recount the tears shed for a father’s sacrifice and are still playing out today. Woodside, 77, is a volunteer with Bugles Across America, which offers players to perform Taps at the funerals of military veterans. He also sometimes sits at the Mecklenburg County Vietnam Veterans Memorial, playing into the long, granite arc to magnify his horn’s sound.

3. Citadel creates scholarship in name of MOH recipient Ralph Johnson

A scholarship has been created at The Citadel in the name of Charlestonian Ralph H. Johnson, who was awarded the Medal of Honor for sacrificing his life to save other Marines in Vietnam. The scholarship, administered by The Citadel Foundation, is for minority students from South Carolina who have a demonstrated financial need and a desire to pursue a STEM-focused degree. Johnson enlisted in the Marine Corps in March 1967 at age 18. On March 5, 1968 he was manning an observation post when an enemy attack came in. A live hand grenade was tossed into the Marines’ perimeter and Johnson yelled out to his fellow Marines before jumping on the device and absorbing the blast. He was killed instantly.

4. On a mission to get 1959 Citadel graduate the Medal of Honor

On the last day of his life, Citadel graduate and Vietnam helicopter pilot Capt. Hugh Reavis Nelson Jr. took on a risky mission fully expecting he’d be shot at. It was June 5, 1966. He was on a combination training flight, search-and-destroy mission hunting for Viet Cong insurgents about 20 minutes out from the Special Forces camp at Moc Hoa. The day was steamy but the sky was clear over the green lush country.The Huey helicopter Nelson flew was the Army’s most visible tactical weapon in Southeast Asia. It was maneuverable and deadly, armed with rockets and machine guns, giving the crew a high perch to spot trouble. But it wasn’t bulletproof. Nelson’s chopper — one of five in the mission that day — was hit by intense small-arms fire. It lost control before slamming into a plowed field, landing hard at 100 mph and breaking apart. A cloud of dirt shot up. All four men on board survived but were knocked about or unconscious. All had injuries of some kind — broken bones or wounds from the shooting that downed the chopper. The enemy zeroed in on the isolated, shot-up crash site. As the first man to stir once the dust settled, Nelson, Citadel Class of ’59, got himself freed. He checked his bearings as he maneuvered around the crumpled chopper exposing himself to enemy fire. Suffering from severely wounded hands, he pulled off a sliding door so that he could get to one of the men pinned inside.

5. Hicks column: A look back at the jubilant first Veterans Day in Charleston

One hundred years ago today, the fire bell awoke all of Charleston at 3:20 a.m. The bell hung in a tower at fire headquarters, and was perhaps the city’s most recognizable sound — and most important alarm, given Charleston’s unfortunate history of devastating fires. On this crisp, clear predawn morning, however, there wasn’t a hint of smoke in the sky. There was only peace.he news came across The Associated Press wire, and overnight editors at The News and Courier alerted Mayor Tristram Hyde. The armistice had been signed. The Great War was over. Hyde grabbed his bride, drove the single mile between his Murray Boulevard home and fire headquarters at 116 Meeting St., just across from the St. John Hotel. The mayor realized everyone in Charleston would want to hear the news as soon as possible — and he knew how to tell them. His wife, Sue, rang the fire bell 24 times. Lights quickly went on in houses all across the peninsula and, within minutes, thousands of Charleston residents flocked to Marion Square for a celebration.

7. Early-morning bagpipers will commemorate the end of World War I

Don and Donna McCammon said they’re lucky to have neighbors who don’t mind the sound of Scottish bagpipes emanating from their living room as they began practicing at 9:30 a.m. Saturday with their piping instructor Geoff McMillion. The McCammons and McMillion were scheduled to perform the song "The Battle’s O'er" by the Doughboy statue on the Missoula County courthouse lawn at 6 a.m. Sunday morning, joining thousands of bagpipers across the world who are playing the song in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the signing of the armistice and the end of World War I. McMillion’s history playing the bagpipes is a bit more extensive. He’s been playing for 36 years, starting at age 12 when he lived in South Carolina. The Scottish influence on the East Coast permeated his life. His family frequently attended the Highland games that celebrated Scottish and Celtic culture. McMillion started taking bagpipe lessons from a Cadet from The Citadel Military College and then attended the North American Academy of Piping in North Carolina, which he described as a “bagpiping band camp.”

8. Happy homecoming as Citadel rallies from 21 down to upset Samford

It was shortly after Brandon Rainey’s 60-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that money began to rain down from the upper reaches of Johnson Hagood Stadium. Somebody up there was happy with the Bulldogs. Down by 21 points in the first half, The Citadel roared from behind to take a dramatic 42-27 homecoming victory over Samford before a season-best crowd of 11,145 fans. It was The Citadel’s first win at home since Oct. 28, 2017. “We want Bama!” delirious cadets chanted in the final minutes, looking ahead to next week’s game at Alabama, the No. 1 team in the College Football Playoff rankings. But before pondering the Crimson Tide, Citadel fans should savor the last two weeks, when their team has outscored Samford and Western Carolina by 63-3 in the second half of come-from-behind victories.

SEC opponents include teams that have almost no chance at winning: The Citadel, Middle Tennessee State, Idaho, UMass, Liberty, Rice and Chattanooga. But from a gambling perspective, this is always an exciting week, because there's value in correctly handicapping which teams will play flat while looking ahead to a much better and more important opponent next week. The Citadel at Alabama (off), noon ET - -Sportsbooks typically don't post FBS vs. FCS lines until the morning of the game. That's why The Citadel-Alabama, Idaho-Florida and Chattanooga-South Carolina are not posted.

1. Leaving his mark on the Corps: General Glenn M. Walters Led Efforts to Develop and Retain Marines

Marines leave their mark on the Corps in a variety of ways, sometimes in ways they would never have imagined. General Glenn M. Walters, the recently retired 34th Assistant Commandant of the Marine Corps (ACMC), understands this better than most. A Cobra pilot who later was instrumental in establishing the MV-22 program, Gen Walters’ career has taken him far beyond the cockpit and has been marked by numerous challenges and successes.“If you look at my career path, I’ve been in places where things were not going right,” the ACMC said during a recent interview. In addition to his assignment in the Deputy Commandant for Aviation’s office as the head of its Requirements Branch during a time of decreasing funding, Gen Walters also served as the Deputy Commandant for Programs and Resources during the sequestration of 2013. “That was a challenge,” he said with a slight laugh.His impressive career includes two tours in the infantry as a platoon commander in 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines and as the Air Officer and Operations Officer for 1st Reconnaissance Battalion. The future ACMC also commanded HMT-303 and later served as the first commander of VMX-22. He gained valuable experience in the acquisition field while serving in the office of the Undersecretary of Defense, Acquisition, Technology & Logistics, Defense System, Land Warfare and supported Operation Enduring Freedom as the commanding general of 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing in Afghanistan in 2011.

2. New book ‘My Winning Seasons’ goes inside Citadel’s championship teams

That was the scene in The Citadel’s locker room inside Williams-Brice Stadium on Nov. 21, 2015, the day the Bulldogs — from a tiny military school in Charleston — scored a 23-22 upset of SEC member South Carolina. Former Citadel linebacker Joe Crochet, one of the stars of that team, takes readers into that locker room and behind the scenes of the Bulldogs’ Southern Conference championship seasons of 2015 and 2016 in his new book, “My Winning Seasons.” The book, now available at The Citadel Bookstore and on-line at Amazon and other booksellers, is a unique view of student-athlete life at The Citadel from the perspective of an Academic All-American who graduated from The Citadel in three years. It’s a companion piece of sorts to famed author Pat Conroy’s memoir of his Citadel basketball career in “My Losing Season.” Crochet will be signing copies of the book on Saturday morning in front of Johnson Hagood Stadium before the Bulldogs’ 2 p.m. homecoming game against Samford.

3. The Berlin Wall: The Horrific Deaths, the Great Escapes and the Prison House of Communism

I have a new article on the website of “The Epoch Times” newspaper on, “The Berlin Wall and Prison House of Communism.” It is now almost 30 years since people in both East and West Berlin breached the Berlin Wall on November 9, 1989, bringing to an end to one of the leading symbols of the Cold War and the prison house that Soviet communism imposed over Eastern Europe. Is it worth recalling the history of the Berlin Wall – why the Soviet Union built it, what it represented in denying people the right of freedom of movement, its cost in human lives during the more than the quarter of a century that it existed – and its relevance in our world today in terms of those who wanted liberty so badly that they risked everything to try to go under, over or through that wall to reach a better future for themselves.

He does this to honor all those who served, but one in particular: his late uncle, Milton Woodside, a Charlotte native and World War II fighter pilot who survived more than three brutal years as a prisoner of war in Japan. After his 1940 graduation from the Citadel, the Charleston military college, Woodside had entered flight school with the Army Air Corps and become a pilot of P-40 Warhawks, a single-engined fighter plane. In the summer of 1941, the young second lieutenant was stationed at Clark Field in the Philippines with the 20th Pursuit Squadron.

5. Korean War veteran remembers his experiences in the country's 'forgotten war'

David Cone, a retired Army lieutenant colonel, vividly remembers his experiences during the Korean War, especially when he was wounded during a battle between his regiment and Chinese soldiers 66 years ago. Cone, who was a second lieutenant on July 18, 1952, was leading his platoon of 40 soldiers, who defended a hill called “Old Baldy” in the west-central section of South Korea, he said. A Chinese soldier about 4,000 yards away fired a 120-millimeter mortar shell, wounding him. “I would like to shake his hand,” Cone said. “Being wounded the way that I was probably saved my life. If I had stayed on that hill, I probably wouldn’t have made it down alive.” Cone’s journey to the Korean War started when he graduated in June 1951 from The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. Cone, who is now 87, completed the basic officer’s course at Fort Benning, Ga., in July 1951 and received additional training at Fort Jackson in Columbia, S.C. He later was assigned to the 2nd Infantry Division, and he joined his unit, Company K of the 23rd Infantry Regiment, in Chuncon, South Korea, in April 1952.

6. El muro de Berlín y el hogar cárcel del comunismo

Por casi 30 años, el Muro de Berlín simbolizó la lucha entre la democracia de Occidente y la tiranía comunista. Este 9 de noviembre de 2018 marca casi 30 años desde que los berlineses del Este y el Oeste irrumpieron en el Muro de Berlín en 1989, con la determinación de derribar esa barrera a la libertad humana. El Muro de Berlín fue símbolo de la clara diferencia entre una sociedad libre en la cual la gente tenía libertad de ir y venir como quisiera en paz, y una sociedad tiránica en la cual el régimen totalitario impuesto por los soviéticos tenía tanto miedo del deseo del pueblo a irse, que hizo brutalmente todo lo que pudo para mantenerlos prisioneros dentro de las fronteras del Estado marxista. Vale la pena recordar cómo y por qué se construyó el Muro de Berlín, y lo que significó en la gran lucha entre la libertad y la tiranía en el desarrollo de los eventos políticos del siglo XX. Sellar a la gente detrás de un muro de tiranía

With a long coaching history that includes helping establish the soccer program for Walterboro High School and Colleton County, Brian Reid will be returning to his roots this spring as the head varsity coach for the Lady Cougar Soccer program.

Creating the girls’ soccer program in 1998, Reid coached 12 seasons before beginning work on his master’s degree at The Citadel. He also served as an assistant boys’ soccer coach in 1997, bringing the total to 13 years of varsity coaching experience between Walterboro High School and Colleton County High School. He was named 2004 Region VIII-AAAA Coach of the Year for soccer.

3. Liberal Capitalism as the Ideology of Freedom and Moderation

Nowadays, many along the political spectrum seem to agree that America increasingly has become a polarized society. Ideological and public policy discourse has been gravitating more toward the extremes: progressives and the Democratic Party with a more explicitly socialist rhetoric and proposed government agenda, and conservatives and Republicans who increasingly appear to be moving in the direction of populist, and especially economic, nationalism under the presidency of Donald Trump. If such ideological extremism is politically tearing the country apart in the eyes of many, then what could and should be a “non-ideology” of compromise and moderation? This is a question that Jerry Taylor, president of the William Niskanen Center, asks and answers in a recent article, “The Alternative to Ideology,” in which he directly challenges the premises and policy perspective of many libertarians. Mr. Taylor insists that those who espouse a political philosophy of individualism, free markets, and strictly limited constitutional government are out of touch with reality and make themselves irrelevant in contemporary political discourse. Having long been a proponent of libertarianism himself, Mr. Taylor believes that he understands its asserted weaknesses from the inside.

Hoops Preview: Clemson hosts The Citadel
lection Day is pretty loaded with college basketball games to get the season kick started. Clemson fans will get their first real look at this season’s team as it hosts The Citadel Bulldogs from the Southern Conference. If you want to take in a “cupcake” game, this is one that the casual fan should find entertaining thanks to the uptempo, quick shooting attack the Bulldogs employ. Points and hot and heavy transition action should be plentiful in this first game of the season. The Citadel, led by Duggar Baucom, were the #2 team in the nation in adjusted tempo last season while Clemson was 274th. Their goal is to run you ragged trying to keep up with their preferred pace. I spoke with a current Wofford Terrier basketball player over the summer who said he hates playing the Bulldogs more than any other team because of the strain it puts on you. Unfortunately for the Bulldogs, Clemson’s experienced and high level backcourt will be difficult to manipulate and should know exactly when to attack the full court style vs. slowing the pace. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the Bulldogs are undersized compared to the Tigers, which is the case for most every mid-major team, but the style Coach Baucom prefers makes having big, powerful posts pretty much impossible. I expect the Tigers will look to operate inside, especially if Elijah Thomas is back from injury and ready to play in this one, when they aren’t attacking the rim in transition.

Tigers hit the century mark
Marcquise Reed had 20 points and a career-high 13 rebounds as No. 22 Clemson beat The Citadel 100-80 and reached 100 points for the first time in nine years Tuesday night. The Tigers (1-0) last hit the century mark in a 102-66 win over Winthrop in November 2009. They reached triple digits for the first time in coach Brad Brownell’s nine seasons on the way to their 34th straight season-opening win. Reed led six Tigers in double figures and posted his fourth career double-double. Shelton Mitchell and Aamir Simms scored 16 points each, Elijah Thomas had 15, Clyde Trapp 13 and David Skara 11. The Citadel didn’t make things easy on the Tigers down the stretch. The Bulldogs cut an 18-point second-half deficit to 80-71 on Lew Stallworth’s layup with 6:38 remaining. But Mitchell followed with a 3-pointer and two foul shots to restore the Tigers’ double-digit lead. The Citadel could not respond and fell to 0-52 all-time against ranked opponents.

1. Tuition rates for 2019-2020 released early to help cadets; families plan
The Citadel Board of Visitors released the 2019-2020 academic year tuition rates earlier than usual, and with an increase that is lower than the projected Higher Education Price Index rate. The Commonfund Higher Education Price Index (HEPI), an inflation index designed to track cost drivers in higher education, projects a 2.8 percent increase nationally. Tuition for both in and out-of-state cadets at The Citadel will increase 2.5 percent. “The Board of Visitors determined that while a modest tuition increase is necessary, the on-going efforts to control costs and increase efficiency across campus support a raise of 2.5 percent, rather than the higher national projection for all institutions,” said Col. Fred L. Price, Jr., chair, The Citadel Board of Visitors. “We made the decision to set the tuition rates now to give cadets, students and their families more time to plan as they apply for financial assistance or make decisions about what college or graduate college to attend.” The Board of Visitors and college leadership continuously assess ways to improve operational efficiency while supporting the college’s mission to educate and develop principled leaders. The Citadel is one of the only two remaining 24/7 military institutions for undergraduates, aside from the federal academies.

2.1 The Citadel wants more female cadets, so it’s changing the haircut rules to entice them

The Citadel is making a change in an effort to attract more female cadets. The military college in Charleston, S.C., has changed its rules about grooming, according to a news release from The Citadel. Part of the adjusted grooming rules will mean “fourth-class female cadets” are no longer required to cut their hair “at matriculation,” The Citadel reported. The changes to the college’s Blue Book, its list of regulations, will be in place for the 2019-2020 academic year. The Citadel said the new standards “will improve the recruiting of women.” This is a progressive step for the 176-year-old military college, which admitted its first class of women in 1996. Initially, female cadets were required to have “a distinctive haircut,” which was a “pixie-style haircut,” until the 2008-2009 school year, when the military college said women were permitted “to have long hair worn in a bun,” if they were upperclassmen.

3. The Berlin Wall and the Prison House of Communism

or nearly 30 years, the Berlin Wall symbolized the struggle between Western democracy and communist tyranny. This November 9, 2018 marks almost 30 years since both West and East Berliners breached the Berlin War in 1989, with the determination to bring down this barrier to human freedom. The Berlin Wall symbolized the stark difference between a free society in which people were at liberty to come and go as they peacefully pleased, and a tyrannical society in which the Soviet-imposed totalitarian regime was so fearful of its own people’s desire to leave that it brutally did all in its power to keep them prisoners within the borders of the Marxist state. It is worth recalling how and why the Berlin Wall was constructed in the first place, and what it meant in the great struggle between freedom and tyranny in the stream of 20th century political events.

5. Thomas Ravenel Fired by Bravo. How Much Was His 'Southern Charm' Salary?

On Monday, a judge in Charleston, South Carolina, ruled that the assault case against Southern Charm’s Thomas Ravenel could proceed to trial. Ravenel was arrested in September after his children’s nanny said he sexually assaulted her in his home in January 2015. Bravo fired Ravenel in August, according to reports, though at the time Ravenel claimed he quit voluntarily. In a tweet, he said the network “took advantage” of him and added, “I’ve got too much to lose and informed them I’m not coming back.” (Ravenel reportedly paid a $200,000 settlement to a second woman who also accused him of sexually assaulting her in 2015.)Whether Ravenel was fired or quit, one thing’s clear: He’s losing out on a big payday. Here’s how much Thomas Ravenel was earning as a star of Southern Charm. Before he lost his job, Ravenel was earning six figures for appearing on Bravo’s inside look at life among Charleston’s elite families. The 56-year-old former politician earned $25,000 per episode, Radar reported. That works out to $375,000 for a 15-episode season. He also got an additional $60,000 for showing up for the reunion show. Ravenel appeared as a main cast member on five seasons of Southern Charm, beginning in 2014.

Local volleyball and tennis teams advance to state
Oceanside volleyball coach Amir Khaledi believes in the ebb and flow of the game. So even as the deficit stretched wider, Khaledi remained confident. “It’s a game of momentum,” Khaledi explained. “Even though we fell very far behind at the end, I still knew we were OK. The game was going to come back to us.” Oceanside overcame a seven-point deficit late in a straight-set sweep of Gray to capture the Class AA Lower State championship Monday in Mount Pleasant.The first was even at 15 before Oceanside took five of the next six games on way to a 25-20 win. The second set was far more lopsided thanks in large part to an 11-point Landsharks run through the middle of a 25-13 finish. “Honest to goodness, after the first two sets, I knew we were going to take it,” said Khaledi, who spent 22 years coaching at Charleston Southern and The Citadel. “We had all of the momentum from the beginning.”

1. Plastic scraps from Charleston Harbor make for trashy art
Some 7 tons of plastic or rubber litter float in Charleston Harbor at any given time, everything from tire shreds to drink bottles. This past weekend, pieces from five bags of harbor junk compete for cash prizes near Hilton Head Island. A group of cadets from The Citadel have entered a diving pelican sculpture in the Port Royal Sound Foundation Recycled Art Contest, to be judged against other schools and groups for a potential $2,000 in prizes.It’s an unusual extension of research by cadets under physiology professor John Weinstein. He estimated the tonnage of plastic pollution in the harbor and is studying its sources and consumption by marine creatures. Cadets under Fine Arts professor Rick Sargent partnered with biology students on the art project. They’ll be bringing their best to the contest. The pelican’s neck is fashioned from the skin of an orange traffic cone. Its head is a clump of plastic bags with bottle caps for eyes. Its wings are crushed beer cans. It appears to be diving to feed in water made from plastic.

3. Service to fellow veterans and coworkers a lifelong commitment for McDaris

Chances are if you knew retired Lt. Col. U.S. Army Larry McDaris Jr., at some point he had your back.The Bradley County, Tennessee, native admired his dad — Lawrence "Scrubby" McDaris, a firefighter in Cleveland when the engine was drawn by horses — for his dedication to public service and his community, said McDaris, 79. "I guess my love for military, if that's the correct terminology, started when I was growing up here in Cleveland and my favorite game was 'Army,'" he said. McDaris spent 21 and a half years in the U.S. Army, 1961 to 1982, and retired Oct. 26 as Bradley County Veterans Services director, bringing full circle a lifetime of service to his fellow Americans. During his military career, McDaris earned two Bronze Star Medals, three Meritorious Service Medals, two Air Medals, two Army Commendation Medals, the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal with three Bronze Service Stars, Korean Defense Service Medal, Army Service Ribbon, Army Overseas Service Ribbon, and the Vietnam Campaign Medal with 60 Device and two Overseas Bars. His uniform also bears a Ranger Tab and Parachute Badge with Wings. It was a long road that started on Cleveland's Eighth Street and led him around the world. After Arnold Elementary School, McDaris decided to attend high school at Baylor School in Chattanooga when it was a fully accredited military academy. His path in adulthood began to crystallize.

5. WCU gives up 14-point halftime lead to drop homecoming game versus The Citadel, 38-24

In a season where Western Carolina has had trouble finishing games, it seemed like everything was set-up for a different outcome. The 3-5 Catamounts had a 14-point halftime lead over The Citadel and the defense was making big plays, a glaring absence from most games thus far. However, in the second half the Cats reverted to old form as the two touchdown lead dissipated into the cool fall breeze and the Bulldogs took a 38-24 win back to Charleston. The Citadel started back-up Brandon Rainey at quarterback and started off without a hitch. Rainey broke free on the games opening drive for a 43-yard TD scamper to stake the visitors to an early 7-0 lead.

How the 10 Teams Still Alive for the College Football Playoff Can Make the Final Four
Alabama (9–0) Remaining games: vs. Mississippi State, vs. The Citadel, vs. Auburn, vs. Georgia in SEC Championship. How to get in: This is the simplest one of all. Just keep annihilating everyone. But Alabama probably could also get in even if it didn’t go undefeated. If the Tide lost to either Mississippi State or Auburn, they could beat Georgia in Atlanta and make the playoff as a one-loss SEC champ. And if Alabama wins out in the regular season and loses a classic against a one-loss Georgia, it’s possible both SEC title game participants would make the playoff. No conference title game loser has ever made the playoff, but the committee would have a tough time leaving out the Tide in that scenario in favor of some other one-loss team.

1. A Citadel Homecoming special: getting to know the Regimental Commander

Each homecoming season, the Regimental Public Affairs Officer (PAO) meets with the Regimental Commander for a conversation that helps The Citadel community get to know the cadet colonel who is leading the South Carolina Corps of Cadets. Recently, Cadet Logan Miller, The Class of 2019 PAO, asked Cadet Col. Sarah Zorn, the regimental commander, a few personal questions about her personality, her life, and her leadership philosophies. Zorn, who holds three black belts in different karate disciplines, spent much of her life growing up in Zephyr Hills, Florida. She moved to the Aiken area of South Carolina as a teenager where she developed a love for working on cars. Zorn is a Business Administration major, and attends The Citadel as a four-year U.S. Army ROTC scholarship cadet who will earn a commission to become an officer upon graduating in May of 2019. She hopes to become an intelligence officer.

3. One Hundred Percent Support for Peter Jensen

[Written by CAPT Geno Pauso, USN (Ret), Commandant of Cadets, The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina] I am writing this letter in absolute one hundred [percent] support of Peter Jensen for election onto the Coronado City Council. Along with Peter’s many accolades and service to the state of California, as well as the cities of San Diego and Coronado in various law enforcement and civil service, he is man of high moral and ethical standards. He is without a doubt one of the most trustworthy and loyal individuals I have ever been associated with in my life. His love for Coronado and the well-being of everyone who lives there is unparalleled by anyone I have met while residing in Coronado. On a more personal note, Peter was a key person in my family’s life while I was an active duty SEAL Commander stationed in Coronado. He and his family were mainstays in my family’s life and provided tremendous support to them when I was geographically separated from them due to orders, or on a deployment. He continues to remain extremely active in supporting our men and women who are on active duty, but in particular, the families of those stationed in Coronado and the surrounding area. Having never served in the military, but serving in many other civil service capacities, he understands the hardships that service puts on a family, and I am eternally grateful to him and his family for their love and support.

Patricia Beltramo of Murrieta matriculated as part of The Citadel class of 2022. The incoming class welcomed 837 new cadet recruits and students. The Citadel offers majors in business administration, mechanical engineering, biology, criminal justice and intelligence and security studies. “The Citadel’s strong enrollment demonstrates that prospective students value the high quality academic environment, structure, discipline and leadership acumen they develop through our values-based educational model,” Col.

Ranking the SoCon’s Non-Conference Schedules for 2018-19
Over the last four seasons, the SoCon champion has found itself on either line 12 (2014, 2015) or 13 (2016. 2017) come Selection Sunday, a result which has been fairly common over the past 10 seasons. Just twice in the last decade has the conference’s lone NCAA representative found itself lower than a 14 seed. And with ETSU, Furman, and UNCG all making great strides in the four-year ranking over the past season, possibilities for another 12 or 13 are certainly out there for 2019.

1. Cadets represent Tarleton at Military College Conference

Two members of the Texan Corps of Cadets represented Tarleton State University at the annual Association of Military Colleges & Schools of the United States’ Senior Military College Conference hosted by The Citadel in Charleston, S.C. Cadet Blessing Inyang and Cadet Seth Wood joined peers from other senior military colleges to discuss commissioning, Department of Defense service programs and Title IX. “The conference was an excellent opportunity for our cadets to interact with students from premier corps of cadets programs,” said Col. Kenny Weldon (USAF, Ret.), commandant of the Texan Corps of Cadets. “Our cadets were able to see the day-to-day operation of The Citadel, which was a valuable experience. The lessons learned will help guide progress of the corps at Tarleton. A key benefit was the development of relationships and the sharing of ideas about leadership development that exists at each individual corps of cadets program.” Tarleton is the newest four-year-college member of AMCSUS. Inyang and Wood are the first to attend on behalf of Tarleton’s leadership program.

2. This Year’s Elections Are Not About Freedom

Politicians and media pundits on the “left” and the “right” are insistent that the congressional elections of November 2018 are a turning point for the country. From another perspective, however, it is merely a contest between two sides of the same political coin. Democrats and progressives are adamant that what is at stake is nothing less than the future of democracy and social justice in America. They see it as a referendum on the current president and a racist, sexist, and possibly fascist United States. Nobel economist Joseph Stiglitz, just the other day, insisted that this year’s elections are a test to find out whether the 2016 presidential contest was just a twisted fluke resulting from a flawed Republican primary process or a sign of an emerging politically dark and sick side to America. He sees victory for the Democratic Party by steering hard political left with the socialist-style messages and promises of Bernie Sanders and Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez. He just hopes in his heart that what Americans really want is more cradle-to-the grave political paternalism. Otherwise, the end is nigh, with America sinking further into Trump’s sick world of racism and sexism and an inward turn against the rest of the globe.

Duggar Baucom won big in his 4th year at VMI. Will he do the same at The Citadel?
In his fourth season at VMI, Duggar Baucom’s team won 24 games and shocked the college basketball world with a win over blue-blood Kentucky at storied Rupp Arena. Baucom is not promising any such miracles for his fourth season at The Citadel; for one thing, the Bulldogs don’t play Kentucky. But anything approaching that remarkable season at VMI would be welcome at The Citadel, which hasn’t enjoyed a winning season since 2008-09. With three seniors on this year’s squad, including all-Southern Conference forward Zane Najdawi, and two graduate-student transfers adding experience, a breakthrough could be at hand for Baucom’s fast-paced, 3-point-happy brand of “Duggarball.”

Former Citadel pitcher J.P. Sears on the mend after injury-shortened season with RiverDogs
Unapologetic about his Palmetto State foundation, former Citadel pitcher J.P. Sears was glad to see two former South Carolina Gamecocks capture World Series titles on Sunday. All-Star outfielder Jackie Bradley Jr. came up with big hits for the Boston Red Sox, and utility man Steve Pearce won World Series MVP for his performance against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Of course, Sears was also rooting for the New York Yankees, the team that picked him up in a November 2017 trade five months after he was drafted by the Seattle Mariners. But Boston bounced the Yankees out in the divisional round of the playoffs.
