While disheartening, the results are fairly on par with Bulldog athletics as a whole. Let's be honest, our pride in sports derives from accomplishments in the early 90s. I dream of a day we are a consistent winner but then again I chose to go to a military school with minimal resources and a systemic schism between the athlete and non-athlete so I may be just a hopeless dreamer at this point.

I don't expect our athletic teams to compete for a National championship or even a SOCON championship year in and year out, but - our teams at least need to be competitive within the SOCON.  We have NEVER even come close to being competitive in the women's sports of volleyball, golf, & soccer (soccer has had 1 winning season in all of it's existence).

If these teams, which have "athletes" on some type of an athletic scholarship can not be competitive in the SOCON, then we should do like Davidson has done w/ football and compete in a non-scholarship league.  At least we should have a chance to be competitive w/ the teams in our league.

Its Soccer---and women's soccer no less--

Who cares!  Football- Basketball - Baseball is what most of us want to be competitive-

The only reason we have these sports is because the Gov makes us!

Not much of a soccer fan myself in general, but I'll always pull for our cadets in whichever sport is playing.

soccer/volleyball/golf at all costs is the price of having football, folks.

and again today.  This time, 3 - 0 @ Mercer.  Coupled w/ the abysmal FB game vs Baptist College and volleyball losing (as usual) to ETSU, this was a pretty crappy day for Citadel sports teams.
