Football is back(ish)!

Monday February 13th, 2012

Those of you who survived your first full weekend without televised NCAA or pro football, take heart: The stalwart Black Knights are already back at it, working to bring the game to you. Army held its first "spring" walk-through Saturday and began full practice Monday morning at West Point's Foley Athletic Center. The team's official website reports the team is stressing fundamentals, not a bad strategy for a squad that ranked 108th in turnover margin, 100th in rushing defense and 113th in both punt and kick returns in 2011. (Don't expect to see the needle move much on that No. 120 passing offense ranking, however. This is still Army, and the Black Knights will fight you on the ground, thankyouverymuch.)
