2. Perry prospects no longer just about the 'oops' (Citadel professor quoted; not web accessible)

Why not pick someone fresh as opposed to someone who's day old?" ''Couldn't run the state' Some noted average voters aren't yet tracking the pre-2016 maneuvering. "I don't get a sense that S.C. voters are paying an enormous amount of attention to the presidential contest at this point," said Scott E. Buchanan, executive director of The Citadel Symposium on Southern Politics in South Carolina. "After the 2014 elections here, I think the focus will begin to ramp up for 2016."

7. Review - Oak Island resident writes new book about cadets at VMI

The way Lynn Seldon tells it, Pat Conroy turned to him in the Charleston restaurant Slightly North of Broad and said, "I think someone should write the VMI novel, and I think you should do it." Comparisons to "The Lords of Discipline," Conroy's notorious 1980 novel based on The Citadel, are inescapable. Seldon even cites it, repeatedly, in "Virginia's Ring."

During an 0-3 start - and the first three-game losing streak of his coaching career - Citadel coach Mike Houston kept preaching the same sermon to his Bulldogs.  "He kept telling us, 'It's gonna break, it's gonna break,'" said Citadel linebacker Tevin Floyd. "And he said, 'When it breaks, it's gonna break big.'"

7. VMI and The Citadel – A True Band of Brothers

I am a Citadel graduate, class of ’69 (I may look like class of 1869, but trust me, it’s 1969). You notice I use the present tense; no military school graduate ever saying he or she was a member of a particular class. VMI and The Citadel are the only remaining non-federal 24/7 military colleges in the USA. Having spent many years in the Air Force, I have the unsubstantiated opinion that the government school graduates (West Point, Air Force Academy, US Naval Academy) identify more with their military branch; the Citadel and VMI graduates more with their school and class.

5. Vincent Sheheen needs big win in Charleston, experts say

"Sheheen has to win Charleston to have any chance of being governor," Scott Buchanan, political scientist at The Citadel, said. "If it's dead-even or if she manages to win it, it's all over for him."  Any Sheheen win would have to be done by a convincing margin, Buchanan added, given the state's traditional majority GOP leanings elsewhere.

The Citadel's commandant of cadets is expected to exemplify the military college's core values of honor, duty and respect. The newest leader of the Corps of Cadets, retired Capt.

A Saturday night date with The Citadel at CSU Stadium is the biggest home game in the 24-year history of the Buccaneers' program. It tops the Big South Conference championship-clinching victory over Coastal Carolina in 2005.

Freeberg moved on in the aftermath, and on Wednesday it was announce that he’s joined Chuck Driesell’s staff at The Citadel as an assistant coach. Freeberg joins the Southern Conference program after spending two seasons at the College of Charleston, so there’s some familiarity with the conference he’ll be coaching in given the fact that last year was Charleston’s first in the CAA after leaving the SoCon.

Hillsboro's Big Bottom Whiskey debuts new 'flagship product,' expands to distilling

Ted Pappas said back in 2011 that he had the "distillation bug." The lighter flavor is no less boozy, however. Like almost all of Big Bottom's other whiskeys – Pappas offers many limited-run editions and an exclusive "warehouse series" only available in an on-site tasting room – the Barlow Trail will be 91 proof. The number is a tribute to Pappas' class of 1991 at The Citadel, The Military College of South Carolina.

.New income report finds that most Americans saw no gains in 2013

The latest report on American incomes shows families were just treading water amid a tepid economic recovery, with both incomes and the number of people living in poverty little changed from 2012 to 2013.  "My sense is, it's been really disappointing that, while we've had this recovery in terms of gross domestic product numbers and things like that, it hasn't translated to real income gains nationally or in South Carolina," said Donald Sparks, economics professor at The Citadel.

Will Citadel fans turn out for Bulldogs' game at Charleston Southern?

As The Citadel prepares for its first game at Lowcountry rival Charleston Southern on Saturday, there is some question as to exactly how enthusiastic Bulldog fans are about making the trip to CSU Stadium, located in North Charleston off U.S. Highway 78 near Interstate 26. The Citadel ticket office sold just 170 of the 530 tickets it received from CSU for consignment, returning 360 to Charleston Southern. The Bulldogs also received 250 complimentary tickets for the 6 p.m. game.
