Kiss and Make Up? Pat Conroy and The Citadel

Link to March 3 New York Times article, "Reconciliation at the Citadel, Through Basketball".

Excerpt: The Citadel’s most famous alumnus is not an athlete, or even a general, but a novelist, Pat Conroy, class of ’67, who dared to write about the place and made himself so unpopular that for 30 years he was all but barred from the campus. Last week, though, he was on hand to see his former team thump Furman, its archrival, 75-54.

Let's see now. The Lords of Discipline was published in 1980. My math tells me this adds up to 21.
