What is a keydet, anyway?

So, I did a little research on the VMI team, which mostly incorporated...what the heck is a Keydet.

According to the VMI website, essentially, your guess is as good as theirs.  It could have something to do with grey uniforms or maybe how a southern drawl would say "Cadet."

Notable alumni include George "Marshall Plan" Marshall, Senator Harry Byrd, Dabney Coleman, Bobby Ross (coached the Lions), Fred Willard ("wha happen?"),  and Randall and Mortimer Duke of the movie "Trading Places."  OK, I made the last 2 up.
