When Citadel football practice starts on Aug. 5, the Bulldogs will have 26 days until their season opener against Charleston Southern on Aug. 31.
Wow, that happened fast.
As we contemplate the Bulldogs’ prospects in 2013 — they were picked to finish sixth in the Southern Conference at last week’s media day, which really means fourth – here’s a look at The Citadel’s schedule, in order of difficulty. I’ll include the chance of a Citadel win for each game (strictly my opinion) and we’ll see where we end up.
Here are some of the headlines that followed the Southern Conference media day Wednesday in Spartanburg:
Georgia Southern Tabbed Consensus Favorite for Southern Conference Crown
Georgia Southern tops SoCon preseason polls
Departing Mountaineers, Eagles chasing SoCon title
Even the SoCon’s own website followed suit:

Well … No, no, no, no, no and no.
