    Good News

    Pete Fiutak picks 3 games against the spread every week. This week one of his picks is for Army to cover the 10 points...this is good news because he is 2-7 against the spread so far this year.

    That's a horrible pick. I really, really think that the Clones will win this thing by at least 20.

    I agree, Chris. If it's only 10, then we didn't do our jobs

    Well, that does seem to be encouraging..... of course based on the history of your thread title on this website, then maybe that isn't such a good sign.... unless this is the week bobcats finally drops the bombshell!

    Re: Good News

    I do think this Army squad is improved and I think their coach is doing a great job, but Army just doesn't have the athletes do stop us on defense, and I'm confident that we'll be able to slow down the option well enough to win this game comfortably. I'm going with 38-13.

    Re: Good News

    Phil Steele picked Kent State to cover last week. That didn't turn out very good for him. :)

    My brother paid $120/year for his news letter (Power Sweep) and Phil gives him 6 picks per week. It is pretty pathetic because Steele is usually below 50%, what a waste of $$$$.

    I did something like that a couple years ago and the first 7 picks they gave me were wrong. I started just betting against his picks

    I agree. Just like with the Kent State game, I don't see why people are worried about this game. Could we lose? Sure, but I think the chances of us winning big are much greater than us losing.

    Army got beat handily by Duke. Duke lost to 1AA Richmond the first week of the season and then got pounded by KU last weekend. They squeeked by a Ball State team that is absolutely horrible losing to North Texas and New Hampshire in previous weeks.

    Army may not be as bad as Kent State but its close. And this game is at home. I say ISU by 3 TDs or more.

    Yeah, the matchups look really good for us (except for that #82 freak). I like our outside LB's DE's and safeties against this offense. They are going to have a tough time with our offense. Again, match-ups are tough.

    No matter the matchups, the triple option will be tough for us to stop. If our offense doesn't come out swinging we are not going to cover

    This...

    Our D has not seen a triple option attack. They are extremely difficult to defend (especially with a borderline defense). There is at least a chance it proves to be a good thing for Army and this thing ends up being quite the dogfight.

    IF we stop their option attack, we will cover easy, but I have zero confidence we will walk in and stop a bonafide triple option team until I see it with my own eyes.

    Unless Army puts it on ground, we'll be doing good to have a 10 point win over a running, ball control team.

    I said the same/identical thing on the Army forum and they thought that I lost my mind.
