Looks like a nice day to kick things off.
Some headlines, such as they are:
Spring practice blog: April 1 (HudsonValley.Com)
Freshman QB Chris Carter appeared to be taking first-team snaps…
The article also has a "super-early" defensive depth chart. No real surprises.
The team appears still to be looking for a kicker. As I recall, one of my classmates was recruited to kick and wound up kicking all four years. So, if you're looking to start as a member of the Class of 2020, this might be your opportunity.
Army doesn't drop the ball in spring opener (Record Online)
Fumbles derailed Army’s 2015 season. The Black Knights mishandled the ball 38 times, many the result of center-quarterback exchanges.
“I don’t know if you noticed, but today we had zero dropped snaps,” [Quarterback Chris] Carter said. “That's a big improvement.”
The GOP's worst nightmare? Donald Trump as a zombie candidate. https://t.co/j7rfL6vKwA pic.twitter.com/hrbxTBRoTq— The New York Times (@nytimes) April 2, 2016
From the article:
Donald J. Trump, who in recent days has mocked a political opponent’s wife, defended a campaign aide arrested on a charge of battery and suggested punishing women who terminate pregnancies, may have surrendered any remaining chance to rally Republicans strongly around him before the party’s July convention in Cleveland.
At a moment when a more traditional front-runner might have sought to smooth over divisions within his party and turn his attention to the general election, Mr. Trump has only intensified his slash-and-burn, no-apologies approach to the campaign...
Republicans who once worried that Mr. Trump might gain overwhelming momentum in the primaries are now becoming preoccupied with a different grim prospect: that Mr. Trump might become a kind of zombie candidate — damaged beyond the point of repair, but too late for any of his rivals to stop him.
They probably should have thought of this six months ago.
Or they can accept the inevitable, broker the convention ruthlessly, and run a guy who might actually win the election, even if that means pissing off their base. All things considered, it looks like those guys are used to being pissed off, so I'm not sure what the risk here really is.
"The Dark Knight Returns" was pencilled 30 years ago. It rescued the Batman franchise https://t.co/bBgniIOMMA pic.twitter.com/aOV1hPsruk— The Economist (@TheEconomist) April 2, 2016
We are (finally) headed out to see the movie this afternoon. I'm looking forward to it despite the reviews.
