Citadel Bulldogs at #7 Clemson Tigers

Location: Clemson Memorial Stadium, Clemson SC: DEATH VALLEY
Kickoff: 12:00 PM, Saturday, November 23, 2013
TV Coverage: NONE!  ESPN3 (online only)
Radio Coverage: WCCP.FM

When I lived in the Palmetto State many years ago, I met many Citadel grads.  They always seemed like good folks to me.  I always thought that the Citadel game was a fun game.  Not much animosity between the programs, just two teams wanting to go out there and have a good time.

That's why I am pulling my punches this week.  Namely because I didn't focus in on one person.  Shannon Faulkner.  Yep, I was gonna go there.  You remember her, right?  The famed "first woman admitted at the Citadel" who lasted less than one full day out in the hot Sakerlina sun.  Since Shannon, there have been over 200 women who actually spent time physically conditioning themselves before entering the Citadel and managed to graduate from that fine institution.  Shannon?  Well, she acquired an aversion to physical activity from her ordeal and now looks like Jabba the Hutt.
Me Jabba, no bada.
 I don't know if any women will be playing for the Citadel on Saturday.  Don't ask, don't tell.  However, there will be no Citadel cheerleaders.  I have it on good authority that several pounds of saltpeter have been ordered for the Citadel Gatorade specifically for when the Rally Cats come out right after halftime.

KEYS TO THE GAME: This is Clemson's LAST game at Death Valley this season.  The Citadel has had problems moving the ball, but does have a somewhat stout defense.  Still, this should be a cakewalk for the Tigers.  I expect Cole Stoudt to come out in the second half and really light things up.  Final Score: 62-14.


  1. Don't know what is going on with WCCP not broadcasting the game after the first half. Here's a link to where you can follow it if you are so inclined:

  2. WTF is Quandon Christian still doing on the field in a blowout like this? I know it is senior day, but the coaching staff should be thinking about next week and keeping all potential starters healthy. I hope Quandon is OK.

  3. You owe it to yourself to look up a catch by Clemson freshman WR Mike Williams in the 3rd quarter of this game. Crazy stuff.
