Just hitting a few links applicable to Army/Ball State. There are some fun and interesting new places to find a good read on Army.

Rich Ellerson's presser quotes came out a few days ago. Some thoughts on opponents dictating where Army's offense goes with the football, Geoff Bacon and Angel Santiago.

I love it when the news outlets of non-rivals take an historical tack on a game. Here, BSU Daily News looks back at the golden era of the series - 2011's 21-48 BSU win. This one examines the young series through the lens of familiarity with the offense as helpful- but not really.

“It’s no question it helps [Ball State has had success against Army],” Lembo said. “Our kids believe in what we’re doing, which is half the battle.”

But Ball State will line up defenders Saturday afternoon that haven’t faced Army’s triple-option before, which presents its own challenge. The inexperience means some players will have to be aware of Army’s cut blocking in its offense. has a video preview of Saturday's game.  Talk about Army and the Army game starts at about 22:00 of the long-ish video production.

At this point of the year Army is tied at 18th in the nation in rushing yards per game. Plenty of time left to improve their standing there.

Here's a Ball State blog Ball U Football Blog. BUFB is the newest addition to my eastern football blog links to the left.

Knighty Night

Sunday, September 1, 2013

Army knocked out Morgan State in Friday night's game and after thrashing the Bears in the first half Army ultimately lulled Michie Stadium's crowd to sleep in their 28-12 tune-up victory.

Some of the stars who emerged in last night's victory were expected: Geoffry Bacon had 16 tackles  - some new stars shined as well... QB Angel Santiago had 101 passing yards and a team high 120 yards rushing as the new face of Army's option offense. It was interesting seeing former Penn State OC Tom Bradley in the booth - probably not the voice I'd want to listen to for every football game but his audio far exceeded his telestrator ability. CBS should probably take the pen off of him until he can use that thing correctly.

Danny Wild's perspective is always fun check him out, bookmark him.

The perspective from the Baltimore Sun is here

Here's an interesting piece on the history of football at Morgan State as an historically black college. Last night's game was Army's first against an all-black college.

 Here's your Army/Morgan State story, stats and highlights
