Is Army starting to get back on college football’s radar?
It seems so after hearing this story from Army athletic director Kevin Anderson.
Anderson said he was talking to a Pac-10 official and former colleague at a bowl conference in Arizona recently about the possibility of a football game.
The official – believed to be Oregon State’s athletic director Bob DeCarolis – brought up two reasons why his school wasn’t in favor of playing Army in the near future.
Army coach Rich Ellerson and the option offense.
“He said that it was just too hard for his program to have to take that time out in the schedule and have to practice from the option,” said Anderson, who was Oregon State’s executive associate athletic director before coming to West Point. “It could hamper his whole season.”
