Last season, I participated in something called “Scanning the SoCon”, a multiple-school blogging exercise on Southern Conference basketball run by Mocs Mania!, a blog devoted to UTC hoops. This year, it has been expanded to include participants from all twelve SoCon schools (even the CofC).
I’ll be providing a preview of The Citadel’s 2012-13 hoops campaign in about a week. What I’ll probably do is post it here as well have Mocs Mania! post it; I haven’t quite figured that out yet, to be honest. (I also haven’t figured out when I’m going to have the time to do it, but that’s my problem.)
All twelve schools will be previewed over the next couple of weeks, as the season draws closer. Here is a link to the “preview page”: Link
Also, if you were wondering where all these preview writers are from: Link
The first preview was posted today. It’s about Elon, and was written by a writer for that school’s student newspaper.
The Citadel’s first game on the hardwood is on November 10, which is right around the corner. The Bulldogs host VMI that day, and yes, it’s the same day the football team plays at VMI. As far as scheduling quirks go, it’s not the most ideal.
I just hope the Bulldogs go 2-0 that day…
