Army Tulane Wrap up

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

Before we get into the Rutgers game, there are a  few more post Tulane stories floating around out there.

A New Orleans Times-Picayune writer laments Tulane's mishandling of the ball.

By the time Army (4-2) scored its fourth touchdown of the afternoon early in the third quarter, many of the green and white pom pom’s issued at the Superdome doors were strewn on the aisle floors though a sizeable portion of fans remained. But it didn’t get much better as the fourth quarter labored on.

Speaking of fun, Sal did an Army football chat on Monday night. I can't say enough about the job Sal is doing covering Army. I can speak to the point that, like me, Sal is an eternal optimist. Most fans that took part in the chat were not nearly as optimistic.

The chat has some bowl speculation and some needless worrying about Kent State.

It should be clear by now that the sky is the limit for Army football. If Army plays their game the Black Knights can play with any team on the schedule. There will be tests in a neutral site game at Notre Dame and home against Air Force - but realistically, Army should win 2 out of the next 3, and 3 out of the next 4 games.

We're getting ahead of ourselves looking down the schedule, the games have to be played, and as we've seen anything can happen in those 60 minutes; but we have every reason to be optimistic about the 2010 season.

Could it be that Tulane wasn't 100% focused on Army?  I'll take a rap song sung by the starting defense over TU spending extra time planning for Army (as they did last year) any day.

TULANE RAP: A rap made its Superdome debut.

A piece that safety Taylor Echols, running back Albert Williams and Asumnu recorded was played in the Superdome for the first time before kickoff.

Wide receiver Joe Kemp gave it a positive review.

“We do a lot of stuff like that for team bonding,” Kemp said. “We are always trying to come together.”
