...But Wait There's More

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

As I expected, there's more Army football press this week than there was for pretty much all other weeks combined

LB Steve Anderson is authoring a player's diary over at Sal Interdonato's Army blog.

It's a really cool look into Army's preparation this week for Navy, make sure to go over there and check it out.

Interdonato takes the heat directly to the Navy beat writer with a weeklong debate style Q&A.

I thought it was interesting to see the official U.S. Army website post the Army/Navy game notes. Not USMA, not Army sports... the U.S. military's homepage. It's the same as the USMA athletic department's notes, but I'll use the .mil link, since that's pretty unique.

As it works out, I'm sitting here right now watching Army's 1971 season highlights on CBS College sports network.

At noon on Tuesday, highlights from the 1964 season will air, followed by the 1968 season at 12:45 p.m. and the 1971 season at 1:30 p.m. Heisman Tales, a 15-minute broadcast featuring Army’s 1958 winner Pete Dawkins, is scheduled to run at 2:30 p.m.

On Wednesday, CBS College Sports will re-air Army’s Oct. 10 16-13 overtime win against Vanderbilt at 3 p.m. and then show One2One at 11 p.m.

Thursday’s programming begins with an encore showing of One2One at 5 a.m., followed by the Inside Academy Football Special at 5:30 and 11 a.m. At noon, the 1996 Army-Navy game will be replayed, followed by the 1998 game at 3 p.m. and the 1999 contest at 6 p.m. One2One at 9 p.m. and Inside Academy Football at 9:30 wraps up the programming.

Friday’s schedule begins at 6 a.m. with the 2000 Army vs. Navy game, followed by the 1999 contest at 9 a.m., a replay of the 2000 game at noon, the 2001 matchup at 3 p.m. and the 2007 game at 6 p.m. One2One will air at 8:30 p.m. with the 2008 game at 9 p.m.

Finally, individual accolades are nice, but there is still at least one more game to be played. I can't find a link to the cite - so Phil Steele's postseason All-Independent selections will have to wait to hear their names called here.
