Pre Rice Items

Friday, September 9, 2016

Sal and Steve Anderson sit down for a podcast - 15 min of good insight regarding last week's Temple game, it's a good listen ahead of Saturday's Rice game and it's nice to catch up with Fity.


Worst article written on Army football this year goes to some hack at the Chron. Absolute joke of an article... watch me quote the whole item:


Records: Rice (0-1) at Army (1-0)
TV-Radio: CBS Sports Network; SB Nation 1560
Series: Rice leads 4-1-1
Storyline: Rice hopes to avoid an 0-2 hole by tackling an improved Army team and its triple-option offense.
Rice can win if: the Owls contain and get a handle on the multiple looks Army's triple-option offense will give them.
Army can win if: the Black Knights force Rice to give up big plays once again, even out of the triple option.



I only offered up that one so I could even justify linking the Rice/Army preview at campusinsiders.com. I pretty much disagree with every facet of their prediction and that alone is what intrigued me about this one. 


But Army only had four third-down conversions and failed on both of its fourth-down tries.
Counterpoint: Army moved the chains with chunks of yardage.

       

Advantages
Offense: Army. When that famous Black Knights triple-option attack is clicking, watching it is a thing of beauty.

I just can't take an article seriously when they just conjure up some vague mumbo jumbo about . "Army's triple option". It's pretty easy to see that writer hasn't watched any more than the first quarter of that Temple game.

Army vs Rice prediction: Army 37 Rice 33

Underdog Dynasty lists their prediction at Final: Army 30, Rice 28.

I see Army winning by two scores somewhere in the 10 or 13 point range, beating the spread and winning outright.



Here's a literal recipe for Rice courtesy the Army Quartermaster's website.
