3_“The Citadel has a beautiful campus!”

If you have never visited a military college, the best two to tour is The Citadel and West Point. I prefer The Citadel because I graduated from there in 1971 and I still live in the Charleston Area. When you come through the entrance gate you will be greeted by a cadet on guard duty. As you travel into the campus you will be immediately greeted by the massive, green parade ground which fronts the Padgett Thomas Barracks across the way.

_DREAM ACHIEVED: Riley makes Citadel football team | Sports | The Press & Standard

Divine intervention, happy accident, plain old good luck — the how’s or why’s of achieving a lifelong dream aren’t important to Lee Riley. He’s too busy relishing the joy of becoming a college football player. Riley, a former standout player for both Colleton Prep and Colleton County High School, has made The Citadel’s football team as a walk-on transfer, penciled in already as the team’s second-string long snapping specialist entering his first season.

2_No crying over spilled chocolate milk: Coburg Cow still standing after storm; milk not so lucky

It has also been vandalized several times over the years, with the tail - it was once sawed off and welded back upside-down - being the most popular target. In 1990, the cow was damaged and a Citadel cadet was hurt while trying it. It was taken down for repairs and later returned during a dedication ceremony led by Citadel cadets. Barriers and a brightly lit sign have helped cut down on the vandalism in recent years.

4_Win some, lose some, pay some off

The Citadel, as of Wednesday, has a new athletic director in Jim Senter. One of his assignments will be booking "money" dates against major football powers.  Senter was on the other end of that financial formula last season as senior associate AD at the University of Colorado, which paid Charleston Southern $400,000 to take a 43-10 drubbing way out in Boulder.

The Military College of South Carolina announced Tuesday that on Nov. 14 it will induct Pat Conroy and Joe Riley as honorary members of the school's Athletic Hall of Fame. And though Riley (Class of 1964) was - and still is - too short to be much of a threat on the basketball court, he is a major baseball fan. He even has a ballpark named for him.

7_Allen thrust into starring role on Steelers' defense

 With the notable exception of their profession, Cortez Allen and Ike Taylor are as different as two human beings can be. One comes from a strict military background at the Citadel, a pair of diamond stud earrings his lone attempt at vanity. The other is as extroverted off the field as he is on it. Allen would like to be the Steelers’ shutdown corner of the future, but Taylor, even after taking a Draconian salary cut, remains the shutdown corner of the present.

3_Milky Way a lightweight among nearby galaxies?

"What's weird about it is that you now have two widely different estimates for the mass of two really similar galaxies," said The Citadel physics professor Luke Sollitt. "If you were looking at both from afar they would look really similar - about the same size, the same structure, and so on. But the idea that Andromeda has a dark (matter) halo so massive as to make its total mass twice the Milky Way's suggests that in some ways, these two similar-looking objects may be really quite different."
