(yet) Another 2010 Preview

Thursday, June 24, 2010

This preview comes to us from www.collegesports-fans and it's another optimistic one. The offense can't possibly net fewer yards or points than 2009, returning QB, new fullback, and 4 returning starters on the offensive line. At the very least Army will play their run game, roll the clock and limit opponents' chances. In that light, I'd like to point out this preview's mention of the defense.

Perhaps the biggest reason for Army’s five wins last season was a renewed improvement on defense. The Cadets only allowed 22 points per game in 2009 and were equally effective against the pass and run. While the offense’s increased time of possession was surely a factor, this is a talented defense in its own right. Army returns eight starters from that unit, five of whom are seniors. That means that their top six tacklers, and eight of their top ten, are back in 2010!

To see such positive notes on this edition of Army football is refreshing. The more I think about the coming season, the more pumped up I get.


Summer is officially here and this will be my first full summer doing this blog. I'll admit that part of the reason I even started this website was so I could get more involved with college football during the slow college football summer news cycle.

I knew that college football news would be slow in the summer; I don't cover other Army sports, I can't stand recruiting news, and as it is a lot of this summer's college football topics don't really apply to the Black Knight football.

It's slow fishing right now so when things like 2010 Army previews roll in it's a good day.

Thankfully I don't live off of fishing alone, and I have ideas for cool content©. It's inevitable that I will start back up with the year by year project (1877... I don't know when), and I have some more yearbooks to add, but when it comes down to it - it's summer - get out and enjoy yourselves. Before we know it it will be time for a 2010 Army re-view, so dig the previews, check Sal and Danny Wild once in a while and find some time to go fishing.
