That's a Relief

Friday, October 8, 2010

Word is out that the Army/Tulane game will be made available online. is airing the game on pay per view. At the very least we will have the option of pay-per-view access, at best we will be able to find a free stream online. You will know what I find before game time.

I was taken aback a bit by guest poster Frank Helps You Think It All Out's game prediction. It had me scrambling around looking at stat pages and game by game records... and I still don't see his angle.
Eduardo Gonzalez of New is a little more cautious.

Toledo, however, has some concerns about this week’s opponent. Despite last week’s big road victory, he believes his team will have to work even harder to beat resurgent Army (3-2).
“Offensively, they run the wishbone basically. They run a double-eagle flex defense that (Army coach Rick Ellerson) installed when he was at Arizona. They called it the `Desert Swarm' at that time,” he said. “I've coached against Rich numerous times, and I'll tell you what, it's the single most difficult defense we faced. It's hard to do much against it.”
Another factor Toledo believes he will have to take into consideration is clock management and making their possessions count.
“They keep the ball away from you. They give you about 10 possessions a game. Normally, we're used to about 13 possessions a game,” he said. “They keep the ball for 35 minutes and you get it for 25 minutes, so they get it for 10 more minutes than you do. It's frustrating.”

When Phil Steele posted his game picks it allowed me to settle down enough to stop biting my nails.
