The simple logistics involved in admitting women is overwhelming.
Dorms need to be modified and of course there is still the issue of whether women should be required to shave their heads.
General Josiah Bunting says he and his staff are doing their own recognizance work by visiting other service academies.
Bunting says VMI may have a difficult time recruiting top female candidates away from these schools because of their national prominence and the military benefits they offer.
He says the Air Force Academy has been admitting women for 20 years and women make up just 9 percent of enrollment.
Bunting says they are doing their best to attract women at VMI. nat sound

But this one was far from finished - as Sherando comes back and moves the ball down inside the Salem 10.
But the Spartans defense would throw down a goal line stand of the ages stopping the Warriors on 2 straight downs from the one to preserve their lead. ((RICKY EUBANK:))
The unselfish Spartans then unleased freshman Denis Haley up the middle, and his 20 yard gallop seemed to out the game away making it 20-to-6 with 7:20 to go.
