    A Strange Stat About Army

    I just read this in Army's media guide...

    The Black Knights have scored a touchdown on their first possession in each of the first three games. They scored on their opening possession three times all of last season and have now reached the end zone six times in its last 10 games.

    Scoring early is not uncommon among team’s that utilize the triple option as defenses try to adjust to the unique system. Army, Navy, Air Force and Georgia Tech have scored touchdowns on their first possession seven times in 12 games. The Black Knights are the only team of the four to accomplish that feat in all their games.

    The challenge for the Black Knights is to continue their momentum generated on that first possession. Army has yet to score on its second drive in any of its three games. In fact, the Black Knights have yet to gain yardage on their second possession in any of the three games.


    Weird.

    Navy went right down on Ohio State and made them look silly there first possession. Never even thought of it.

    Re: A Strange Stat About Army

    This could go on for a h-wile


    That is an interesting stat, and goes a little bit with comments that Rhoads made about this is the only time we'll see this offense this year, so I could see it taking a drive for the defense to figure out, but once they've got it down...

    Re: A Strange Stat About Army

    After seeing Army play last week, I don't think its the system catching defenses off guard as much as the speed at which they run it. The practice squad that they've been going against all week can't really simulate the speed at which a team is used to running this every day. This offense thrives on getting off the ball quicker than the defense, it usually takes the defense a drive or so to adjust to the speed of the offense.

    Actually, I vote not, because for the next 3 quarters or so of the game CF will be in meltdown mode and then we'll have to put up with those 5 or so posters that will then be absolutely convinced that the defense and the team as a whole sucks because we allowed Army to march right down the field and score on their first possession. It's kinda sorta what happened during the Kent St game, and it's kinda sorta par for the course when it comes to Cyclone fans...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
