Army Temple Walk-Up

Friday, November 18, 2011

Steelman is back, listed as #1 QB.... if he can't do what has come to be expected of him expect to see Santiago in there.

Bernard Pierce is dinged up after a blow to the head, but looks like he might go. Go for it, kid. After all it's your brain.

With Army out of the running for a bowl, perhaps we'll avoid the MAC-biased officiating that has marred this game in the past.

Scout has the Army/Temple matchups posted.

Oh, and somehow the Navy/Army game counts toward Navy's bowl eligibility - it would be nice if that was the case moving forward for both teams. That, or allow the 100 year Yale Bowl celebration game count toward a bowl.

Temple's athletics site mailed in a sheet of notes. USA Today also have notes on the game.

and here are Rich Ellerson's presser quotes.


Queens University, Charlotte Yearbooks

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Charlotte's Queens University has its yearbooks online.This isn't the first yearbook I'm drawing from this project - and I am sure it won't be the last.

Queens University of Charlotte's yearbooks are another yearbook collection that have gone through some name changes. The yearbook has taken the names Coronet, Hamlet, Arete, Insignia Regnie and, in 2007, an untitled yearbook commemorating the sesquicentennial of the school.

There is no football at Queens and so no football history in their pages, but these yearbooks do a nice job of chronicling the past of the university and its students.

 Check them out: Queens University of Charlotte's online yearbooks.

Post Rutgers Items

I'll never be accused of over-analyzing a loss and it's losses like these that make me even less enthusiastic about posting a post-game wrap. I've been putting this exercise off long enough though. My take on the game is this: A below average Army team lost to a straight-up average Rutgers team.             

Army's performance seems to tail as games go on Sal says it's a matter of focus.

Speaking of Sal he's got another nice chat up.

Mohammed Sanu made Big East Coast Bias' weekly honor roll.

Sanu had 13 receptions for 129 yards to key Rutgers’ 27-12 win against Army and set school and conference records in the process. With 92 receptions on the season, Sanu broke the BIG EAST single-season record of 91 catches, which was held by Pittsburgh’s Larry Fitzgerald since 2003.

On The Banks left this laying around:

As we learned last year at the Meadowlands, Army doesn't travel at all outside of their cadets. The attendance was pretty lousy for this one. Part of that is Rutgers fans still grousing over the West Virginia loss, but if students aren't going to make the trek to a "home" game in East Rutherford, they certainly aren't going to The Bronx against a lousy opponent. Maybe if Rutgers can draw Missouri or Texas A&M they will.

I don't want to hear a single word from any Rutgers fan about how RU has a foothold in New York City, that is pure fiction. How about RU fans try this: Unless you're in a position to brag about attendance - try to keep your thoughts on the subject to yourselves.

It's tough to lose games like this one, but the silver lining on this season is that so many guys that played will return to play next year. That's pretty much what I take from this season... a healthy belief in the future of the program.

Anyway, your Army/Rutgers Yankee Stadium story, stats and highlights.
