However, IMO the difference in the game was the Army O Line that won the big battle up front, as they have all season long, physically wearing down a very good SDSU Defense. But could hear you yell from here in Juneau when SD ran the kick back at the end of the half and then almost did it again to win the game.

Consequently, I thought it was very fitting that HC Monken allowed them to select the crucial 2-point play that ultimately won the game. I can hear you even today “Don’t kick the ball deep and never to their best returner” I agreed going for the win there was no way Army could have stopped them in overtime. Hold the ball, keep it away from the better team with the better athletes and have a chance to win it in the end.

He goes into considerable depth in his reports, but I’ll just print his game summary: The Army Offense finally wore down the SDSU Defense with 91 plays that generated 446 yards of Total Offense. Charlie Wilson Crystal River, Florida Charlie- That’s not much of an “option” offense, is it?

(SDSU certainly did not help themselves with five 15-yard Unsportsmanlike Conduct Penalties.)Army QB Bradshaw’s 180 yards rushing gave him 1,646 yards for the season, breaking the Service Academy single season rushing record previously set at 1,587 yards by Navy’s Napoleon Mc Callum in 1983.. There’s some midline and some of that Emory Bellard/John Bond stuff - and a healthy dose of “G” from an unbalanced set.

Pinstripe Bowl (Iowa 27, Boston College 20) The game was kind of exciting, but they just can’t get a baseball field (Yankee Stadium) ready for football.

Other years, it’s been newly-laid turf that wouldn’t knit.

SDSU RB Penny’s 221 yards rushing broke the previous SDSU single season rushing record of 2,133 yards set by Donnell Pumphrey last season. " 'N PLEEZE don't go for 2 and PLEEEEEZE don't run Rocket Toss against that D and.... And then, to top it off, the toss-sweep from a tight slot. Once they know you can run option, you don’t even have to run it!

These were two very talented players leading their respective teams with all that they had to give. *********** Hi Hugh, I really enjoyed the Army/ SD game.

(EVEN IF YOU'RE ALREADY RUNNING THE DOUBLE WING, I BET THERE ARE SOME TIPS THAT WILL HELP YOU RUN IT BETTER) (2) DETAILED VIDEO ON HOW I TEACH THE UNDER-CENTER SNAP - IF YOU'RE A SHOTGUN GUY, WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO BE ABLE TO SPIKE IT OR SNEAK IT?

(3) A SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE STACK-I PACKAGE - I'VE BEEN RUNNING THIS FOR 20 YEARS NOW AND I'VE NEVER PUT IT ON A VIDEO.

That mental and physical toughness brought them through another close game with a well-earned victory. ***********BOWL SUMMARY UGLY GAMES Boca Raton Bowl (Florida Atlantic 50, Akron 3) Nice of Kiffin to keep his foot on the gas Frisco Bowl (LA Tech 51, SMU 10) SMU punter tried to trip a return man with a soccer “tackle” Gasparilla Bowl (Temple 28, Florida International 3) Without their QB, FIU didn't belong in a bowl game Bahamas Bowl (Ohio 41, UAB 6) Couldn't they pay some local kids to sit in the stands?

Army QB Bradshaw was voted the game’s MVP, which is traditionally awarded to a player from the winning team. Schiarra goes nuts, jamming his body into seams that weren't meant to be found. Famous Idaho Potato Bowl (Wyoming 37, Central Michigan 14) Extra credit for ugly uniforms against the blue turf background) I do like Wyoming QB Josh Allen - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Allen_(quarterback) Dollar General Bowl (Appalachian State 34, Toledo 0) What was it with the MAC this season?

IF YOU'RE A DOUBLE-WINGER, YOU OUGHT TO TAKE A LOOK.
