Army 1-6

Monday, October 22, 2012


Things are bad, real bad, and getting worse.

On that UPS performance index the only team below Army is Idaho:


Rank         Team                     G       Off.          Def.        ST       Misc.       Index
119  Army Black Knights       7       102.46 62.43     82.69   85.06    67.60
120      Idaho Vandals       8        84.85       70.73 85.37   76.23    67.09
Idaho fired Robb Akey the other day. 
I don't advocate or foresee Rich Ellerson being let go mid-season or after this season  - and for that matter not next year or after next year either - but I would bank on some sort of significant sacrifice from the defensive staff. You will find no bigger advocate than me for stability on the coaching staff- and Army has had remarkable stability on its staff.  There comes a time to move forward with the team and I feel that now would be a good time to shop around.


Army made an emu of a team look like a flock of eagles.

I'm happy to wash my hands of the Eastern Michigan game.
