These slow starts by the Army football team are driving me crazy. We won 52-3 but were behind at the end of the first quarter. Against a good team we must be good from the opening kick-off.

Slow starts or excellent in-game adjustmentsbby the coaching staff?

Hard to complain after a dominating game like this one.

I think we are doing just fine. True, we start slow but finish fast and I think the reason is we dominate the TOP and wear the other team out by our punishing ground attack. You could see SJU just fade in the second half as did Buffalo. You hold the ball for a long period of time and the other team gets tired the longer the game progresses.
Not too long ago on this board, we all complained that WE were the team fading in the fourth quarter. I hope those days are long gone.
I don't see any other team use 5 fullbacks, if they use fullbacks at all, besides us. That alone has to wear out the defensive linemen. Depth is the answer and we are slowly attaining it thru out the whole squad.
