We even got a little actual football with the XFL. Let’s get into it. Army Football Awards Banquet Army Football held its […]
Army Lacrosse has a big game this weekend against #18/#19 UMass, and that means it’s finally time for the second annual AFF Army Lacrosse Season Preview. Army Black Knights Army has been a primarily defensive-minded team for the past few years, but with the team’s best player serving on the attack, and arguably its […]

Happy Sunday, everybody, and if I didn’t say so already, Happy New Year as well. We’re halfway through an electric NFL Wild Card weekend, and Army’s got a new Defensive Coordinator. I like it. I honestly thought the rationale behind Army Head Coach Jeff Monken’s hiring former Georgia Tech, App. State, and Wofford DC and […]
It’s been a pretty good week of football, my friends.

Western Kentucky won an instant classic in the First Responder’s Bowl against Western Michigan, […]
Happy Friday, friends. I’d hoped to get this preview up yesterday, but I’m up in Vermont with my family, and the skiing has been pretty good.

As they have for much of the year, the Army team showed definite signs of life yesterday, and in some ways they even played well, but when […]

We’re off to Philadelphia this week for the greatest rivalry in sports. It’s BEAT NAVY Week, and that means the Army-Navy Game is this Saturday.
