Cougs Face Charleston Southern in the Battle of the Holy City tonight!


The Citadel defeated Charleston Southern for the first time in nine years on Monday night winning, 76-73 at the Coliseum, finally preventing Chas Southern from gaining enough "So-mentum" to be in contention with the College of Charleston.




Which brings us to tonight's game: first let's do a bit of house-keeping, to answer WB's question, no-there isn't a trophy (yet) just bragging rights for who the Holy City Champ is. Secondly, I know it seems odd for those of us who served in the Peace Corps or who save lives as Emergency Room Doctors can't get a free pass for tonight's game, but EMT, Cops, Meter-Maids, etc can, but that's just how it is. It usually works that way across the board. Military discount at the IHOP but nothing for those of us who served in Africa fighting AIDS and other diseases. Just go with it, shell out the 10-bucks and cheer on the Cougs tonight!
