I have to confess, I have only slightly more interest in the upcoming Army game than I did with the TSU and Howard games. In fact, I'm quite upset that they'll be on the schedule for the next few years. Huge Giants stadium payout and playing in Yankee Stadium or not. Looking around, there were three items that may be of interest.

1. Army fired HC Stan Brock after last season, replacing him wtih Cal Poly HC Rich Ellerson. He's transitioning the Black Knights to a Triple Option offense, which should pay dividends in the long run.

2. Alejandro Villanueva. Ellerson's first order of business? Convert a 6'10, 285 lb offensive tackle to receiver.

3. Army beatwriter Sal Interdonato thinks that the Black Knights can win. Wait, what? He expected a close game last year too.
