Practice notes from Army's first practice are here and there is not a negative quote to be found on the page.
Item: a quote from Ray Maples
“We’re going to try and score on every play. Last year we showed we had the potential, but this year I think we’re really going to execute.”
Sal picked up on the optimism, but that optimism apparently wasn't masked. Even Coach Ellerson got in on the positivity.
"We are (viewed as) upsetting people all of the time and it can't always be an upset," Ellerson said. "Sometimes, you just have to go out there and kick somebody's butt."
I'll tell you what, it's way too early to be objective about what this team can do, so I'm buying in.
You heard it here... banner year for the Black Knights.
