I've been doing a fairly poor job of blogging this Army team's season and I am finding less and less time to get timely posts up. I will try to persevere through the rest of the season not that we have reached the thick of the season.
Before we get started with any Air Force material let's take a look at Army's QB situation:
Steelman's importance to the team cannot be overstated, Trent is the brain of the offense. I know he is a TOUGH kid, but I don't expect him to play on that ankle. If he does start I will be shocked, but I never want to count Steelman out. I hope he gets back by December, but even that might be wishful thinking with high-ankle sprains.
Air Force has gone through some QB things as well.
Yeah, get on that.Jefferson's status was unclear over the weekend because he left the Falcons' 42-0 victory at New Mexico during the second quarter with an injury to the middle of his forehead.
"It was encouraging to see him involved in practice," Calhoun said of Jefferson. "But, no sir, I'm not ready to say he'll start Saturday. We have to rough up our quarterbacks a little this week in practice and see how they respond."
Army's preformance against 1-AA Fordham earned them a spot on Phil Steele's top team performances:
42 points in the first half will land you on that list.
Here are some cliche'd keys to the game courtesy CBS Sports.com
If the Falcons run their offense and avoid turnovers, they should emerge victorious again in their first home game since Oct. 13.
ARMY WILL WIN IF: Statistically Army's rushing attack puts up slightly better numbers than Air Force (Army leads the nation with 369.0 yards per game, Air Force is third with 326.88), but the Black Knights will find opportunity for victory if they can force the Falcons to turn the ball over.

I feel pretty good about this one, which is why it probably doesn't look anything like last week's ballot.
I probably should have left WVU on there, but maybe I'll remember them next week.
Army's rushing unit is ranked #1 in the universe.
Bonus: the link to Army's hilarious passing numbers.
Army now leads the nation in freshman who played. That makes things look pretty good for the future, but at what cost is it today?
Also hilarious was the repeated announcement on the broadcast that the game was a sellout. At first I thought there was no way that Michie was at capacity at any point of the day on Saturday. Perhaps I was mistaken, as guys like this were hard to see in the whiteout conditions.

The Fordham angle is here. Respect Fordham, they will bounce back.
Three games left, three wins to bowl eligibility - if you don't think it's possible, move on.
