Here is a completely UNOFFICIAL look at The Citadel’s football schedule for 2014, with some equally unofficial thoughts on each game:
Citadel fans well remember former Appalachian State quarterback Armanti Edwards, who pretty much had a career in four games against the Bulldogs.
Those fans will be encouraged to hear that the high school coach of verbal commitment Jalen Lampkin compares him to Armanti.
“I just caught it and ran with it,” the sophomore from Atlanta said after the Paladins’ 30-20 victory pushed Furman to the second round of the FCS playoffs, where they will play at top-seeded North Dakota State on Saturday.
The Citadel has received a couple of verbal commitments from players at Upstate football powerhouses.
I had a fan’s eye view for The Citadel’s final game at Clemson, and aside from the Bulldogs’ 52-6 loss, it was an enjoyable day. Got to “march” in the Military Appreciation Day parade with my dad (a retired Air Force Lt. Col.) and walked on the field with him at halftime. Clemson does a great job with Military Appreciation Day, and I know Citadel people appreciate that.
