BREAKING NEWS: A bad situation getting worst for Army Football...
In a late development, according to IDM sources in the West Point/ Highland Falls area, Army’s top quarterback recruit plebe Paul McIntosh, a topped ranked high school prospect from Indiana, resigned from the military academy on Monday along with fellow teammate, fullback Patrick Mealy. The McIntosh resignation was confirmed by the Mid-Hudson’s Times-Herald Record, “McIntosh was an option star at Reitz High in Evansville, Ind., where he was named Indiana's Mr. Football in 2007. Many thought McIntosh's arrival was a major reason why Army changed to an option offense this season”, according to the report.
What a freaking disaster. More…
“Brock questioned his entire team's character after Army dropped its second consecutive home game to start the season, saying, ‘I think some guys quit.’”
While the players may have in fact given up during the game, IT”S YOUR FREAKING JOB TO KEEP THAT FROM HAPPENING YOU MORON!!!
From McIntosh’s former high school coach John Hart:
"From my standpoint, I don't understand it," Hart said. "They just got beat by a Division I-AA school and the best player in Indiana is not on your No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3 deep depth chart?"
Read the article, I can’t quote any more, it’s just too painful. You know what this sounds like to me? It sounds like an 18 year old plebe just might have known more about how to run an option offense than his colossally moronic head coach.
Brock must be fired. The Superintendent, the Army Athletic Association, and perhaps some folks in Washington need to GET THIS SITUATION SQUARED AWAY NOW!
CLARIFICATION: After discussing my previous posts with Yoda Jacket, he pointed out that he thought I was deficient in my mention of Navy’s and Air Force’s successes. He’s right. For the record, I have nothing but MAD PROPS for both the Air Force program over the last 10 years, but especially Navy. I watched Paul Johnson’s first game as head coach and Navy’s season opener against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets with our group of friends when GT clobbered Navy by 70 points, a devastating and demoralizing loss. Navy won only a couple of games that season, one of them against Army. The following year they got their first bowl invitation in decades and have been back to many bowl games since. There’s a stark contrast in coaching ability right there. Johnson get’s his team up after a disastrous season to beat Army, Brock has his top players not only quitting football, but leaving the academy.
