Not sure this is a beat-down. Just the facts. Even sadder is that the heart (Elon) and soul (Davidson) of the SoCon-fused have a foot out the door. Some here thought this was our home.

from P&C-

Southern Conference basketball coaches and media both picked The Citadel to finish last in the 11-team league this season, according to polls released today.

6. Appalachian State 164

10. Georgia Southern 66

11. The Citadel 46

Elon was chosen by both coaches and media as the preseason favorite, with defending champion Davidson second in both polls.

Davidson forward De’Mon Brooks was named preseason player of the year by league coaches. No Citadel players made the 10-man preseason all-SoCon squad.

The Bulldogs were 8-22 last season and recently lost junior forward P.J. Horgan, who has had to give up basketball due to a back injury. The Citadel opens the season Nov. 8 at VMI in the All-Military Classic.

It is sad. A team that didn't even draw 50% capacity against CofC, their biggest rival, and has a tiny following.

Hard to believe only five seasons ago they won 20 games and the next year hosted Michigan State.

I'm re-reading Beach Music by Pat's cousin. I never thought Chuckie would pull this off. I wouldn't want to recruit there.
