The school and the cadet leadership are working to get cadets to games.  This is their plan and I give them credit for creative thinking.

To show support for The Citadel Bulldogs both on and off the playing fields the school will be holding a competition between battalions. Each battalion will be assigned one home basketball game, and attendance for Fourth Class Cadets will be mandatory. They will be required to sign in to the game and stay for the duration. The game for Upper class cadets is optional. However, the battalion with the most upper-class cadets in attendance, who are signed in, and stay for the duration of the game, provide the most support for the team, cheer the loudest and have the most creative posters, a PT pass for one week will be awarded to the game attendees. Commanders are required to attend except for special orders. Enthusiasm and creativity will be judged, and a winner will be determined after the last home game.

 

IE: Athletic Director Mike Capaccio said that it was the Regimental Commander’s idea to start this competition to get Cadets to come to basketball games. Sarah Zorn born in Florida, raised in Aiken, S. C. is on a full Army ROTC Scholarship, and the first female Regimental Commander in the history of The Citadel.

I've been saying the same thing for years!  About time the light bulb finally went on!

Call me a cynic but I think that mandatory knob attendance will last as long as it takes a couple Mommies to send emails complaining that their babies couldn't study

Looks like a paltry crowd in McAlister for WCU.  Doesn't look like there is a battalion of Cadets in attendance.

It was not the the whole battalion that was required but all the freshman.  On Thursday night first battalion had more upperclassmen while this afternoon was general leave during the game.
