I have just read the letter from the “Northern lady,” and it is obvious to me that there must have been two separate Citadel/ Coastal Carolina games on the same day. I was at the game with several friends, and we witnessed none of the negative activities she attributed to The Citadel fans.
We had a great time. It was a fine game played by two outstanding football teams — and we (The Citadel) won.
I cannot address any isolated incidents that might have occurred around this lady. But I did not see any “appalling behavior” on a large scale. As a matter of fact, we even had a few Coastal Carolina friends celebrate with us after the game.
To condemn all of us for “appalling behavior” is simply the wrong attitude to take.
