To say the very least, that did not play out the way that I thought that it would.

Save for a stumble at Tulane, Army Football has had a dream season. The sole blemish on the team’s resume is that they have yet to beat a team with a winning record, a circumstance that I’d not have bet on prior to the season. That changes this week. Army’s last two games are against bowl eligible teams with excellent offenses and strong cultures of winning.
This week, Army (8-2) travels to Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas, to take on a familiar foe in North Texas. The Mean Green (7-3) have already clinched the C-USA West division title. Still, I expect this to be a hard-hitting contest between two closely matched teams. After splitting a pair of games last season, Saturday’s contest marks the rubber match before the series discontinues in 2018.

It’s amazing to me after all this team has been through this season, especially on the defensive side of the ball, that they’ve already matched last season’s win total and have a reasonable chance of winning out. I thought the losses of Andrew King, Jeremy Timpf, and Xavier Moss would really hurt this team, and especially on defense, and for a while they did. But the Army Team has battled back and found a way. They’ve consistently played big in the biggest moments. If you were around Michie Stadium for the 2015 season, well, the differences are profound. That’s despite the fact that a lot of the same players are still on the field. They celebrated Senior Day yesterday, and my God, have they come a long way.
