RE: Game Week: @Army
As for the game, this will be a good one. I have watched both teams play. EMU is much better than its record. Army has not yet beat a team as good as EMU, but it is playing well right now. It will come down to how well EMU defends Army's offense. If your boys can figure it out then you have a good shot at winning. If not, you may be frustrated by the end of the day. Buffalo contained it well, and at the time I thought that was a very poor reflection on Armys team, but after watching Buffalo give my WMU Broncos everything last week, I think Buffalo is much better than they were last season.

Anything can happen, and I think it will be a great game. I honestly think Army plays better on the road than at home. Cadets have so many responsibilities at home, but get a break from that when on the road.

I am rooting for Army, but if they lose its best that it is to a MAC school. I plan to attend the WMU/EMU game in Ypsilanti, so hope your boys at least get worn out.

I think the key is Bradshaw. If he can't complete his passes, I see EMU winning a defensive struggle... His passing hasn't been impressive so far this season.

Seems like they've shifted to a different QB to come in when they want to pass.

Bradshaw is a terrible passer, and always has been. He will miss guys who are so open that the defenses just stop running because if the receiver catches the ball it will be a TD. But Army might not even throw a pass in a game. When they do there is always one or two guys all alone. The last couple weeks they started tossing the ball a few times more than usual. Navy and Air Force have similar offenses, but passing is a much more important component of their game. Not nearly as much with Army.

It's still a very tricky offense to figure it out. You guys have a good athletic defense, which will help. Game will be interesting.

They're in a hotel Friday night for home games. Sure, they leave earlier for flights to road games, but they don't miss out on many responsibilities by leaving slightly earlier to fly. Maybe a class or two....

Haven't really done that, except in one desperation scenario (@ Tulane, down 4, drive began with 17 seconds remaining in game). We certainly haven't been in "uh-oh, it's 3rd & 10+, let's put in the guy with the arm" mode this season.
