Just got in from Indiana for the game...staying with 4 other grads off Hackberry about a mile southeast of the stadium.  We'd definitely be interested if there's any sort of Citadel meet up tonight.

So anybody know who the kid in the Cid uniform in the tweet is?  It's kinda gone viral and people loved it.  It's good - it downplays the ferocity, strength, and endurance our guys play with, especially in the second half.  Herd never sees it coming, gets up early, puts the subs in and our 1st knock them silly, until Saban has to put the first team back in to stem to the tide (no pun intended) or get embarrassed nationally by a lowly FCS team.

This is pretty good article, and unfortunately has a great deal of truth in it.  I will take exception to one line - words to the effect that the Dogs won't get 100 yards rushing.  I refuse to believe that until I see it with my own eyes, even against Alabama.  We had a hard time against Clemson, but I believe the Tiger's D was more skilled that the Bama defense.  I think 150-175 rushing with a score or two against 2nd teamers is more likely.  I'll know about 12 hours from now . . . .

8 minute drive to start the game, 3 first downs before punting. Stuffed Bama on the first two plays and looking to see if we have a fumble on replay.

10-10 at the half. Regardless of the final score, this is already a Citadel victory.

That was a win for the Dogs.  Scored more that a few SEC teams combined against Bama.  
Really proud of them.

I was at the game and it was a wonderful experience.  The Bama fans were very nice before the game and very complimentary after the game.  I was at both USC wins and the Arkansas win.  Could not have been more proud of our team!  The size and speed of Bama and playing them straight up in the first half was amazing.  I could not be more proud of our team.  I am surprised there are not 4-5 pages of guys praising this team.  I could not be a more proud of this Citadel football team.  I know you can't play 100% perfect all the time but if we played this well all the time we would be undefeated in the conference.  We have an excellent coach, staff and team.  Go Dogs!

Great effort by our team scoring more points and allowing less points than several SEC teams combined. To my surprise....tidefans.com is filled with little more than a cry-fest about the evils of cut blocking and how they should be outlawed.

Bottom line.....Bama got out-hit, out-toughed, and out-physicaled in the first half of this game and they appear to be a little embarrassed,

Let’s bring the same intensity to CSU and wrap the season on a high note.

Give ‘Em Hell Citadel......Go Dogs!

OK, so I missed some things in my earlier "prediction" post on this thread:



'BAMA wins the coin flip & defers (we won the toss & elected to receive).  DAWGs march 75 yards, eat up 7 minutes on the clock & lead 7 - 0 (We didn't march 75 yards & score, but we did move the ball and eat up 7 minutes on the clock);  'BAMA is stopped after driving about 30 yards & DAWGS get the ball for their 2nd possession (It really happened).  Same result as the 1st & the DAWGs lead 14 - 0 early in the 2nd quarter (We didn't score, but we did move the ball & eat some clock).  'BAMA doesn't know what hit them & the fans and college FB world are shocked (It really happened);  Saban is livid on the sidelines (I'd say he was pretty pissed by this time).  'BAMA scores a TD on their next possession and DAWGs then mount another long, clock eating drive to end the 1st half up 21 - 7 (I'll take 10-10 @ the half anytime);  Saban is beyond livid, & refuses to do an interview on his way to the locker room (Can only imagine what was said in the 'Bama locker room @ Halftime).  'BAMA gets the ball to open the 2nd half & marches down for a TD, DAWGs are up 21 - 14.  DAWGs eat more clock on their next possession, but can only get a FG, DAWGs up 24 - 14 midway thru the 3rd quarter. 'BAMA scores on their next possession to make the score, 24 - 21 heading in to the 4th quarter.  DAWGs take the KO & march down for another TD, taking another 6 minutes off the clock, DAWGs up 31 - 21.  Teams trade possessions & both punt. 'BAMA scores on their next possession to make the score, DAWGs 31, 'BAMA 28, with under 2 minutes to play.  'BAMA hasn't been able to stop the TO all day, & nothing changes here as the DAWGs run out the clock & win, 31 - 28. (Well, the 2nd half didn't quite go as predicted, but the DAWGs still represented well!)

This morning on ESPN finebaum is giving all the blame to Saban and no credit to our program. He said yesterday Tua should play no more than two series. ( I think finebaum was the one Mike Houston called out after the USC win in 2015. ) PF is a Bama homer so I am surprised he didn’t give credit where credit is due but he has to follow the espn mantra and also keep his ratings up. Easier to bash Bama than give the Dogs their credit. Dropped Bama down in his rankings due to strength of schedule.
