Army Ball State News and Notes

Friday, September 23, 2011

Ball State hosts the squad Saturday and bring a semi-impressive 2-1 record.

Army's game notes are up on the GoArmySports site.USA Today has some game notes and

It looks like Ball St. is a little dinged up themselves.

Starters Jason Pinkston (cornerback), Austin Holtz (offensive tackle) and nickel defensive back Quinton Cooper likely are out this week. Holtz and Cooper have knee injuries and Pinkston has been hobbled much of the season by a hamstring injury.
Because this week's game is a non-conference outing, those players likely will sit to try to facilitate the healing process.
Receiver Jack Tomlinson (hip), middle linebacker Travis Freeman (ankle) and center Kreg Hunter (ankle) all are hobbled but should play. All three are starters.

Hope for their sake they bring somebody that can tackle.

The game is slated for ESPN3 - I have no idea what that means as far as internet availability, and only time can tell what turns up online.

Hustle Belt has some profound insights into this game:

"The game, to be played in Muncie, also gives Army a showcase for its recruiting targets in Indiana. Yes, you read that correctly. Evidently, the Black Knights are trying to make West Central Indiana a stronghold. They've already offered two Lafayette kids - the town in which I reside: Central Catholic's Danny Anthrop (who, by the way, is an absolute STUD) and McCutcheon's Vince Hunsiker. Army is also pursuing Attica's Jarrett Smart, who hasn't received an offer yet. This entire paragraph may be more "inside football" than necessary, but I find it interesting. Anthrop also holds offers from Hustle Belt members Buffalo and Akron. I would very much like Ball State to offer Anthrop as soon as possible in case Northwestern, Purdue or Notre Dame don't offer (he's either received letters or taken unofficials there)."

Good stuff there, once I have the chance to edit my list of BIG East links you can expect Hustle Belt to be included.
