Good morning everyone, and happy Friday. We don’t have a ton of Army Football news this week, but hopefully we have enough notes and nonsense to at least keep you entertained for a little while. And if not, well, at least it’s Friday. New Coaches We noted last week that Army had added […]
Happy Friday, everybody! The best thing about this week is that when ESPN put out a couple of its boilerplate Top 25 offseason articles, each one had a blurbs about the Black Knights! Go Army!!! College football Top 25: Each team’s biggest reason for optimism (ESPN) No. 25 Army: Quarterback Kelvin Hopkins Jr. and […]
Happy Friday, Army fans! I don’t know how often we’re going to do this during the offseason, but there’s been enough news over the past couple of weeks to justify talking about at least some of it.

My favorite thing about Bowl Season is seeing all the crazy match-ups. We’ve had to listen to Navy fans chirp all season about how hard their schedule has been and about how the American ought to be a “Power 6” conference. Now, at last, we can see how true that is. I love the SEC, […]

It’s SB John Trainor’s 8-yard run off a left-handed pitch late in the 4th quarter last year, setting up the go-ahead score. Recall the situation. Army scored on the opening […]
It’s Championship Weekend! That means there aren’t nearly as many games as we’re used to seeing, but most ought to be legit barn-burners.
