Alumni and Friends of VMI:
Cyber Corps Numbers: 505
As you can see, the Cyber Corps membership recently surpassed the 500 mark. I don't think we'll get the publicity that Mark McGwire generated, but it's pretty slick anyway. A special thanks to all our loyal participants and those who provide information to be shared with others in the Cyber Corps.
VMI Football: Georgia Southern is ranked number 3 in the I-AA Polls. This is the fourth ranked opponent in a row that VMI has faced.
Geo Southern 63, VMI 7
STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) _ Georgia Southern's Adrian Peterson, Cory Joyner
and Carl Small each scored two touchdowns Saturday to lead the Eagles to
a 63-7 victory over VMI.
Peterson began the scoring spree with two 1-yard touchdown runs in the
Jason White responded with a 1-yard scoring run for VMI (1-4, 0-3
Southern Conference). But by halftime, Georgia Southern (5-0, 3-0) led
Small added 17 and 3-yard scoring runs in the fourth for GSU after Greg
Hill scored on a 4-yard run in the third and Audrell Grace brought in a
26-yard scoring pass from J.R. Revere.
A 64-yard punt return by Joyner in the second, minutes after he scored
on a 16-yard pass from Hill pretty much secured the game for the Eagles
Class of '73 With The Big Bucks: Congrats to the class of '73 which recently celebrated its 25th reunion. Rumor has it that the class pledged 7.3 million. If this is yen I'm not too impressed. If this is dollars, I am duly impressed.
I Guess the First Class Does Run Barracks After All: I understand that the first class was recently a little peeved at the Corp's rather tepid support of the football team at a recent football game. To make a point, the first class revoked some of the privileges of the lower classes. Not sure what privileges were revoked but I do hear that the thirds can only use Jackson Arch when going to formations. I also think that the seconds and thirds can only wear their bathrobes on their own stoops. Other details are sketchy.
Breakout With A Twist: Also seems that the first class is considering the possibility of changing breakout this year. Rather than have the rats crawl through the mud puddle of death, etc., the firsts are considering a four day march to New Market. I believe this would be in the neighborhood of 80+ miles. Nothing definite yet. As you might imagine, the logistics surrounding such an undertaking are significant. Stay tuned.
Gen Bunting's Interview on C-Span 2: I watched Gen Bunting's interview yesterday. As usual he did a fine job and represented the Institute well.
Minutes from Recent Alumni Association Meeting: I was unable to attend the recent meeting of the Alumni Association. However, as soon as I receive the minutes I will pass along the major points.
Hey, that's it for this week.
Yours in the Spirit,
RB Lane '75
