Postgame Buffalo: Coach Monken

Army coach Jeff Monken’s comments following a 23-20 overtime loss at Buffalo Saturday.

Quotes taken from video by Ken Kraezert, Sons of American Legion Radio

On what changed in the game in the fourth quarter (Army was outscored 14-0 in fourth quarter)
“They started making plays. We didn’t do a very good job of blocking them and sustaining blocks. We couldn’t move the football. They got chances and they took advantage. We had a poor performance all together as a team and it starts with me. The big play that set up the touchdown we had poor leverage and a missed assignment. There should have been an extra guy out there. We had the missed field goal (34 yards) at the end of regulation. We rolled the snap back. It’s everything. We had wide-open receivers. We didn’t hit them or we threw it to the wrong guy. Didn’t protect. Had to get rid of it and run for our life. Missed tackles. You name it, it was self-inflected wounds everywhere. Just not a very good performance.”

On outgaining Buffalo (444-265)
“Yards don’t matter. When you get it down in the red zone, you score. I don’t know what our red-zone scoring percentage was, but it probably wasn’t very good. We got down there a couple of times and didn’t capitalize.”
On what (two) turnovers and costly penalties indicate
“Again, just a poor performance. We pitched the ball on the ground over here. We threw the ball up for grabs at the end of the first half and they intercepted it. The penalties are agonizing. We jump offsides on offense in the first half. The chop-block penalties. Guys are trying to play aggressive. I’ll have to see the film on those.”
On special teams and the injury to kicker Mitchell Howard making a tackle on the opening kickoff
“I was disappointed that we got our kicker hurt because we did such a poor job of covering a kick. He had to get involved in the tackle. It’s a shame when a kicker has to get involved in the tackle.”
On bye week being chance for team to refresh
“We will take a couple of days off this week to try to get them rested up. We have to practice. Lord knows, we play that bad. We are going to have trouble winning another game. We are going to have to practice better and play better.”

Prediction time: Buffalo

Army is a 14-point road favorite at 0-2 Buffalo Saturday night.

The Black Knights (3-0) look to improve to 3-0 on the road this season. The last Army team to win its first three road games in a season was the 2010 Armed Forces Bowl championship squad.

Jeff Monken, who was an assistant coach at Buffalo from 1992-94, led Army to a 47-39 win over Buffalo in his Army debut in the 2014 season opener.

Buffalo lost its season and home opener to Division I-AA Albany 22-16 and fell to Nevada 38-14 on the road following a bye week.

Monken praised Buffalo’s Lance Leipold and his coaching resume throughout the week.

“He won (Division III) national championships at Wisconsin-Whitewater,” Monken said. “I think he went 15-0 five times. When you start adding those up, that’s a lot of wins. He knows what he’s doing and he has a great staff. When you come from a program like that and you win, that’s the expectation. Those coaches are going to get a team put together and they’re going to have a great football program there. We’re going to have to be very well prepared.”

Could this be a “trap” game  for Army before a bye week?

Stephen Anderson, a captain on the  2010 team, and I discuss that and more on the latest Army football podcast. Link here.

Sal Interdonato (Times Herald-Record Army beat writer): Army 38, Buffalo 14. Fullbacks Andy Davidson and Darnell Woolfolk have combined for 477 yards and 10 touchdowns through first three games and should have another big day against Buffalo’s defense, which ranks 114th against the run. Army’s defense looks to hold its fourth straight opponents to 14 points or less. The next interception by Army would tie the team’s total in 2015.

Mark Gaughan (Buffalo News Buffalo beat writer): Army 42, Buffalo 24. Army looked like the Super Bowl champs vs. UTEP. I think the unfamiliarity of defending the triple option will give UB a lot of problems unless the Bulls can force a bunch of fumbles.

Ranger jerseys: UTEP

Army head equipment manager Nick Determan said he almost ran out of Ranger jerseys for the team’s practices this week.

Ranger jerseys are awarded to players for perfect effort in the team’s previous game. TWENTY-NINE players were recognized for perfect effort in Army’s 66-14 win at UTEP Saturday. Determan said that’s the most that he’s ever assigned.

Among the players honored were freshman slotback Kell Walker, freshman cornerback Elijah Riley, who made his first college start, and freshman safety Jaylon McClinton, who forced his first fumble in a kick return.

Here’s a list of the players wearing Ranger jerseys during practice:
Offense: quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw, quarterback Chris Carter, fullback Andy Davidson, fullback Darnell Woolfolk, slotback Tyler Campbell, slotback Elijah St. Hilaire, slotback Kell Walker, wide receiver Edgar Poe, wide receiver Jeff Ejekam, wide receiver Christian Poe; tight end Quinten Parker, center Bryce Holland, guard Mike Houghton, guard Justin Gilbert, tackle Brett Toth.

Defense: nose tackle Andrew McLean, defensive end Eddy Ruzga, nose tackle Ray Wright, defensive end Wunmi Oyetuga, linebacker Andrew King, linebacker Jeremy Timpf, linebacker Scott Washle, cornerback Marcus Hyatt, cornerback Elijah Riley.

Special teams: kicker Mitchell Howard, long snapper Scott Flanick, linebacker Calen Holt, safety Jaylon McClinton, safety Max Regan

Recruiting: Wages commitment

Ted Wages was in eighth grade when he watched his first football game at Michie Stadium.

Army linebacker Julian Holloway, who is from Wages’ hometown of Auburn, Ala., and the Black Knights defeated Air Force 41-21 on Nov. 3, 2012.

After the game, Holloway gave Wages a tour of Army’s locker room.

“It was cool,” Wages said. “I thought it was the neatest thing.”

Soon, Wages will have his own locker at Michie Stadium. The senior defensive end from Auburn High committed to Army Sunday afternoon.

“I’ve have been an Army fan since middle school,” said Wages, who is 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds. “It’s just the place for me.”

When asked if Army’s 3-0 start this season factored into his decision, Wages said, “It’s wonderful that they are 3-0 and I hope they keep it going with success when I am there. But, that didn’t factor in. I was more concerned with finding the right school academically. Football is an extra benefit.”

Wages’ top schools were Army and Air Force, he said.

“By really, if I’m being honest, it was a top two but Army was way out ahead,” Wages said.

How did a kid from the football-crazed, Southeastern Conference country become an Army fan?

“I watched my first Army-Navy game in the fifth grade,” said Wages, who attended the service-academy game in Philadelphia last December.

“There’s not really a game like it. Growing up in Auburn, I’ve been to the Iron Bowl (Alabama-Auburn). It’s pretty crazy but a lot of times, it’s crazy for negative reasons. The Army-Navy game is just a tradition and it’s awesome.”

Wages attended Auburn’s home game against Texas A&M Saturday night. He checked his phone frequently for updates on Army’s 66-14 win at UTEP.

“I’ve never seen them put up that many points,” Wages said. “I saw a funny quote on Twitter saying it was the biggest Army win since Normandy. I thought that was awesome. It was great. You don’t see 66 points put up too often.”

Wages said he will likely be a direct admit to West Point. This week, Wages, who plays some tight end and wing back on offense, will line up at tackle due to injuries.

“We’ll see how that goes,” Wages said. “I’ve never played it (tackle) in a game before.”

Postgame UTEP: Coach Monken, Andrew King, Darnell Woolfolk

Army coach Jeff Monken, linebacker Andrew King and fullback Darnell Woolfolk’s comments to Times Herald-Record sports reporter Ken McMillan following 66-14 win over UTEP. Apologize for posting the quotes late.

Army coach Jeff Monken
On significance of victory and how Army accomplished it
“I think the boys just played a great game. And played really hard and executed well. And earned the victory. Certainly there are some things we didn’t do perfect but we did a lot of things really well. I think it was an emotional week, but to handle the adversity that we did and do this took a tremendous effort by our players No. 1 and by our assistant coaches, they did a great job preparing our guys for this game
On if he had concerns about the players emotional well being
“I am still concerned about their emotional well being. They loved Brandon and it still hurts. It’s not going to go away. That’s going to be something that we’re going to continue to deal with. The way these guys grieve and the point in time that it hits each one of these guys is going to be different for some of them. They certainly probably haven’t felt the most grief that they will. Brandon’s funeral is on Monday  and I am sure we will have some guys who will be awfully emotional on Monday when we attend the funeral. It’s not going to go away. It’ something that we are going to deal with. I am sure these guys will handle it and handle it well. They lean on each other. They love each other. They draw support from their teammates.”
On if he sees the team getting better week to week
“I hope so. I hope we’re getting better. I don’t know. It’s hard to say. If you play the same team week after week you can probably figure out if you are getting better but it changes every week .. the opponent, the preparation, the defense we face, the offense we face. But I think we’re getting better as a football team. I thought this performance tonight was really just a testament to the resiliency of these kids here and how much they believe in each other and how much sense of responsibility they feel to each other.”
On if he couldn’t have asked for a better performance from his offense
“9-for-9 on scoring drives and a kneel down. Yep. I was really pleased and disappointed we couldn’t put the first one in the end zone and had to settle for a field goal. Beyond that, we were able to score on every drive with a touchdown and overcame some tough spots and converted some third downs and fourth downs to do it.”
On quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw operating Army’s triple option
“Ahmad has done a really good job. He’s been a terrific leader for this team, very poised, really pays attention to detail and knows the offense and is well-schooled. Coach (Mitch) Ware is doing an unbelievable job coaching him and getting him ready. I am really proud of him and he’s making this go for sure.
On the defense’s effort
“Unbelievable. I thought they did a great job. We gave up a couple big plays there that were disappointing but overall a really nice job stopping the run. The first half they didn’t run the ball hardly at all … they (UTEP) were more effective the second half. We will certainly want to start there and stop people from running the football. I think the guys did a good job. They had a couple big runs late in the half … we were playing everybody … we wanted to get some guys some experience … we had some guys out of position. We have to cover kicks better. We had a couple big kick returns against us and I am sorely disappointed about those … we have to improve in that area. There are still things we see that we have to fix but overall we’re going to celebrate and be happy about this victory. After a week like this, I am really proud of our kids and am glad we get a chance to celebrate.

On TV announcer saying Army could be approaching the top 25
“I don’t worry about that. It doesn’t matter where you are ranked right now anyway. It matters where you rank at the end. We will worry about that when the time comes. Right now, we’re worried about Buffalo. They are a talented team. They are a very well coached team. That guy has won a TON of games in his career and he will have his team ready. We’re not going to pat ourselves on the back. We’re going to go figure out what we need to get fixed to try to get it fixed and give ourselves the best chance to beat Buffalo.”

Senior linebacker Andrew King
On how satisfying it was to put up victory like that
“It was great going out there and working with my brothers and trying to get a victory and trying to go 1-0 this week. We accomplished that.”
On the efficiency of Army’s offense
“The offense was rolling. They did their job. They kept moving the ball forward and not getting negative yardage plays. They were really working today. I was proud of them and pretty proud of all of our guys. This shows how much a week of practice and good preparation can do for a game.
On how team was able to battle through loss of Brandon Jackson and still make it a successful end of the week
“We’re always fighting for our brothers and the brotherhood. Brandon will always be a part of this brotherhood, and we continue to fight for each other. If Brandon was here he would want us to go all out and he would give it his all.”

Sophomore fullback Darnell Woolfolk
On how satisfying victory was and why Army had success
“It felt awesome. We really executed on both sides of the ball. The defense played well. Honestly we played for each other, the brotherhood. We all love each other and we made it clear that we were going to play for each other in this game.”

On how he and team managed to get through a tough week and still come out with a resounding victory
“Honestly, like I said, it comes down to the brotherhood. We all love each other. We were all there to support each other. We know Brandon would want us to play our best.”

Inside The Numbers: UTEP

Twitter follower Michael Tomasko may have said it best, “Been following Army Football since 1984, & cannot remember when the entire team played better,” on Army’s 66-14 win at UTEP Saturday night.

The 66 points were the most scored by Army football team  since a 68-6 victory over Colgate on Nov. 1, 1958. That’s Army’s last undefeated season and Pete Dawkins’ Heisman Trophy year.

Researching: 52 points is Army’s largest margin of victory teams currently comprising Division I-A since a 54-0 win over Wake Forest on Oct. 6, 1945.

Army is off to its first 3-0 start since 1996. The 1996 team won its first nine games. The Black Knights have started a season 2-0 on the road for the first team since 2010. Army’s three-game winning streak is the program’s longest since the Black Knights won four in a row from Oct. 22-Nov. 19, 2003.

The Black Knights have played turnover-free football for the first 12 quarters of the season. Army is tied for second in the nation in turnover margin (+7) with Washington. Ohio State leads the nation at +9.

Army’s offense was 10-for-12 on third down against UTEP and now rank fourth in the country, converting at a 57.5 percent (23-of-40) clip.

Triple-option breakdown (13 different players carried the ball): Fullbacks (Andy Davidson, Darnell Woolfolk, Cole Macek, Ryan Velez) 39 carries-206 yards, 4 TDs; Quarterbacks (Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Carter, Malik McGue) 18 carries, 139 yards, TD; Slotbacks (Jordan Asberry, Elijah St. Hilaire, Kell Walker, Tyler Campbell, Christian Drake) 13 carries, 76 yards, 2 TDs; Wide receivers (Glen Coates) 1 carry, 5 yards (first play of game)

Army quarterbacks Ahmad Bradshaw, Chris Carter and Malik McGue combined to complete 7-of-8 passes for 174 yards. Slotbacks caught four of those passes for a combined 119 yards.

Firsts
Career touchdown: sophomore slotback Jordan Asberry (2-yard run, 2nd quarter); sophomore safety Max Regan (13-yard fumble recovery, third quarter); senior slotback Elijah St. Hilaire (2-yard run, fourth quarter).
Interception: junior linebacker Scott Washle (fourth quarter)
Forced fumble: freshman defensive back Jaylon McClinton (kickoff third quarter).
Pass completion: freshman QB Malik McGue (24 yards to tight end Quinten Parker, fourth quarter)
Touchdown pass: McGue (39 yards to slotback Joe Walker, fourth quarter)
Catch: freshman slotback Kell Walker(28 yards); sophomore tight end Quinten Parker (24 yards); senior slotback Elijah St. Hilaire (19 yards); sophomore wide receiver Christian Poe (17 yards).
First points: junior kicker Blake Wilson 3-for-3 extra points.

VIDEO: Kenneth Brinson on UTEP’s Aaron Jones

Texas-El Paso junior Aaron Jones is the nation’s second-leading rusher (372 yards) through two games.

Jones is averaging 7.6 yards per carry. Army’s rush defense ranks 25th (87.5 yards per game) in the country and has allowed its first two opponents an average of 3.6 yards per car.

Linebacker Kenneth Brinson has been a playmaker for Army’s defense early in the season. Brinson has two sacks, an interception and has forced a fumble. The sophomore talks about slowing down Jones and UTEP’s offense.
