Citadel Cadets vs. Princeton Band

We hear about southern hospitality a lot here in Charleston, and rightfully so. Chucktown is arguably the friendliest city in America. But sometimes, it’s not so pretty, and sometimes that not-so prettiness happens at the Citadel. When the Citadel Bulldogs faced off against the Princeton Tigers, the contest between the two teams was practically a lovefest compared to the face-off between the cadets and the band. Evidently, things got tense when the Princeton band made asses of themselves on the Avenue of Remembrance, angering up the blood of the cadets, who then reportedly began to rough up the band. Once it came time for halftime, the band was greeted with a hail of boos.
