Haha. "my son goes to army." I've never heard it said like that...you mean West Point or is he in the army?

RE: Game Week: @Army
brovol has given a LOT of good information - I will add:

this is reunion weekend for the USMA Classes of 1997, 2002, 2007, and 2012, so the place will be crowded

wear comfortable shoes, lots of hills

try to get to the stadium well before KO time, you'll have to go through security at the stadium

please take the time to talk to a cadet or three - you are paying for their education, so you should check up on your investment

Army defensive ranks: Rush - 98th, Passing - 49th, Total - 73rd. Forced 2 INTs on thr year, tied for 108th.

Really hope we can get SOMETHING consistent going offensively.

The key to their game is time of possession, so the offense is going to have to make the most of their opportunities, may not get as many as usual. Absolutely cannot afford turnovers, poor red zone play, or lots of 3 & outs.

Roback should be able to pick them apart, this could be his breakout game.

Cannot disagree.

Interestingly, the two highest TOP games for Army this season are the two losses:

39:18 @ Tulane
36:57 @ Ohio State

The wins:

36:08 @ Rice
34:15 vs Buffalo
31:33 vs UTEP
25:29 vs Fordham

Source for those? They don't match the NCAA's rankings (rush 86th, pass yards allowed [tied for] 22nd, pass efficiency defense 73rd, total defense 50th).

( edit: I see -- ESPN, where default ranking is done by yards allowed, not yards per game )

Importantly: Scoring Defense - 29th.

2nd half points scored against Army's defense: 33 (14 by Ohio State)

4th quarter points scored against Army's defense: 20 (7 by Ohio State)


UTEP scored another 7 2nd half/4th quarter points on a pick six.

Curious about the 'hills' comment:

Aren't the shuttle buses supposed to drop patrons off near the stadium?

Or are you referring that a lot of folks will walk from their lots to the stadium, without aid of vehicles?

The latter.

Makes sense. I believe I will be parking at the Washington Gate and will get a bus shuttle from the lot to the stadium.

I wish I had a red or green pass and then I'd hoof it.

You will be proud after talking to the cadets. They are bright, very polite, and welcome the questions (although I can tell you first hand, they are still willing to give attitude to their parents.
LOL).
