Quick thoughts: Tulane

Don’t think my column on the offense’s struggles or fan complaints on message boards were the cause but Army opened its playbook  and threw more against Tulane.

The book on playing Tulane’s defense, which clogs the middle against the triple option, is to get the outside or take to the air.

Ahmad Bradshaw’s six completions were the most by an Army quarterback since the team’s opener against Fordham on Sept. 4. Bradshaw completed six passes in that game.

Army successfully completed a throwback pass from slotback Joe Walker to Bradshaw that went for a 36-yard touchdown before it was called back due to a block in the back by wide receiver Jeff Ejekam in the first quarter.

But when Army needed to go back to the option for a critical first-down pickup, the running game failed. Army trailed 28-21 with nine minutes left in the third quarter. The Black Knights had great field position after a 23-yard punt to Tulane’s 37.

Freshman slotback Tyler Campbell picked up 9.5 yards on pitch play to Tulane’s 28 on first down. The Black Knights could not make the three feet on its next three plays.

Some coaches considered 2-and-1s a free down to throw the ball. Maybe, Army should have called a pass instead of hanging off to fullback Aaron Kemper, who was stopped for no gain off left guard. Bradshaw was stuffed two straight times. He was hoping to run option on fourth down but was dropped for a 1-yard loss by nose tackle Corey Redwine, who was unblocked.

Surprised Army didn’t try to double-team the disruptive Redwine more. Watched a few played where a lineman attempted to cut Redwine, who was quick enough to beat the block.

Only one of Army’s 33 carries by running backs (fullbacks/slotbacks) went for 10 yards or more. Christian Drake’s 66-yard run was cut to a 47-yard gain due to a holding penalty on Edgar Poe on Army’s third play from scrimmage.

Saw a first in my nine years of covering Army football, coach Jeff Monken, who led his team onto the field for the second half, jumped the wall separating the turf and stands and headed up into the cadet section in an attempt to fire them up. Monken paced through two sections and headed back down to the field.

Monken wants his team to play on the edge and take chances. But I think Army got too cute on its fake field goal in the first quarter. Too many things have to go right for wide receiver DeAndre Bell to complete his  pass to tight end Kelvin White on 4th-and-3 from Tulane’s 10. Tulane defended the play well. Running for the first down or touchdowns wasn’t an option for Bell. The coverage on White was pretty good too. Kicking the 27-yard field goal and going up 10-0 11 minutes into the game is a safer play. Keeping the offense on the field would have been a better opinion than the fake.

Army’s freshmen continue to play well, especially on the defensive side of the ball. Cornerback Brandon Jackson picked off his team-high third pass. Jackson delivered a big hit on Tulane’s final drive. Freshman linebacker Kenneth Brinson, who also made a nice hit in the first half, returned a blocked punt by fellow freshman Andy Davidson for a touchdown. Linebacker/safety Gibby Gibson has played consistent in limited time.

Monken had a quick trigger Saturday, taking freshman linebacker Calen Holt off long snapping after he sailed a ball over punter Alex Tardieu’s head on the first play of the second quarter. Senior Connor Farley, Army’s long snapper for the first eight games, replaced Holt. Monken also benched senior cornerback and four-year starter Chris Carnegie after he gave up a 90-yard touchdown pass to Teddy Veal with 2:58 left in the first quarter. Tulane quarterback Tanner Lee had missed a wide-open Veal downfield two plays earlier.

Bradshaw fumbled five times, losing one, which Tulane returned for a touchdown in the second quarter. Could the errant toss been avoided? Should Bradshaw, who was being wrapped up by defensive tackle Tanzel Smart, kept the ball and took the  loss of yardage?

Honoring victims of Paris attacks

Caleb McNeill is everything that Jeff Monken wants in a football player.

McNeill, a senior cornerback, is selfless, playing on Army’s scout team, giving the offense a look on the week’s opponent.

For his dedication to the program, McNeill was selected for a special honor Saturday. McNeill carried the flag of France as Army entered the field at Michie Stadium for its game against Tulane.

The academy paid tribute to the victims of the terrorists attacks in France Friday. There was also a short moment of silence in the first quarter.

“He’s such a great representative of our program,” Monken said of McNeill. “He’s our whole team and what they commit to. These are the warriors that are going to lead men and women and get the bad guys that did that and will continue to make that pledge to keep the world safe.

“That’s what makes coaching these guys worthwhile and satisfying. Though we didn’t get the effort that we wanted out of them and we didn’t play as good as I hoped, I’m still really proud to coach these guys because I know what they mean to our country and the world.”

Monken said McNeill, who wasn’t made available to the media, has no connection to any of the victims of the attack.

A female exchange student from France carried the black flag of Army football next to McNeill.

“That just breaks your heart just to think of the terror that those people must be going through,” Monken said. “It just sickens me that there’s people like that in this world.”

When told that a recent Army football player had just deployed overseas, Monken said, “You know what, they want it.

“When something like that happens, that’s the way they are wired. That’s the way they are built. ‘(They say), send me, I want to go. I want in the fight. I want in the game.’ There’s not a lot of people like that. A lot of people would turn and run the other way and they are running head strong into it.”

The academy sent out message through social media for an increased security presence Saturday. Additional military police were stationed about the stadium.

Pregame blog: Tulane

Freshman slotback Jordan Asberry will not play today against Tulane due to an ankle injury.

Asberry had started the last two games. He injured his ankle in the second quarter at Air Force last week and didn’t return. Junior Joe Walker, freshman Tyler Campbell or freshman Christian Drake are options at Asberry’s spot. Walker was listed with the starting lineup in the pregame. He started Army’s first seven games. Army coach Jeff Monken said injury has slowed Walker down.

Senior lineman Justin Gilbert will play but won’t start.  Gilbert, who has been battling an ankle injury, didn’t practice last week but started against Air Force. He played half (26) of the snaps. Monken said earlier in the week that the Army training staff would have to work to get Gilbert ready to play.

Senior quarterback A.J. Schurr was dressed for warmups but wasn’t active. Freshman long snapper Calen Holt was listed as the starting long snapper.

Freshmen dress list (36): CB Marcus Hyatt; P J.D. Mote; QB Luke Langdon; S Max Regan; QB Chris Carter; SB Nick Black; WR Shafer Swann; FB Darnell Woolfolk; S Gibby Gibson; CB Brandon Jackson; SB Tyler Campbell; FB Drue Harris; SB Christian Drake; LB Chandler Ramirez; LB Calen Holt; LB Andy Davidson; TE Quinten Parker; TE-LS Zach Saum; FB Spencer Sheff; LB Samuel Johnson; LB Jarrod Jones; LB Cole Macek; LB James Nachtigal; LB Kenneth Brinson; G Ethan Palelei; T Rick Kurz; G Victor Nieves; T Tim Gant; DE Juwan Griffith-James; NT Raymond Wright; LS Scott Flanick; WR Christian Poe; WR Jalen Sharp; WR Jamal Tookes; DE Wunmi Oyetuga; NT Cordarrell Davis.

Prediction time: Tulane

Army is a 2.5-point favorite against Tulane in a non-conference game between two 2-7 teams Saturday at Michie Stadium.

The Black Knights are 1-3 at home, defeating Bucknell 21-14 on Oct. 17. Army will play its first home game in 27 days.

Tulane has lost five straight games, scoring six touchdown over that stretch. The Green Wave’s two wins are 38-7 over Division I-AA Maine and 45-31 against 0-10 Central Florida. Tulane’s offense ranks 123rd in Division I-A in scoring at 16.3 points per game.

The under-over for the game is 44 points. The teams have averaged a combined 38 points per game this season.

Sal Interdonato (Times Herald-Record Army football beat writer): Army 28, Tulane 17. This is Army’s best chance for a win in its final three games. Tulane shut down Navy’s triple option three weeks ago. Navy has success throwing the football. That game could force Army to mix things up a little more on offense and throw the football. Army has won the coin toss six times this season and deferred to the second half all six times. Maybe, the Black Knights will elect to receive Saturday and try to make statement early.

Predictions from around the college football universe
The Power Rank: Army has 53 percent chance of winning.
Rich Cirminiello (collegefootballnews.com): Army 27, Tulane 17
Athlon Sports: Three out of five writers picked Tulane. Braden Gall and Mark Ross picked Army.

State Of Offense

The numbers are ugly.

No first-quarter points in the last five games. No first-half points in three of the last five games. Zero plays inside the opponent’s red zone against Air Force and UConn.

Jeff Monken came to West Point with a reputation as a solid triple-option coach. He learned the offense from one of the best in Paul Johnson at Georgia Southern, Navy and Georgia Tech.

The offense hasn’t hit its stride nine games into Monken’s second season.

Spoke with Monken and offensive coordinator Brent Davis about Army’s struggles.

Does Army have the quarterback to effectively run the triple option?

“Nope,” Monken said. “I think Ahmad (Bradshaw, a sophomore) can be that guy be he’s not healthy. Early on before, he got hurt you could see that spark. That’s a guy who might as well be a freshman. He didn’t practice last year and didn’t play at all.

“He’s coming along and it  would really help if he would have been able to play all year, game after game. But so many times, he’s in the training room or on the sideline because he can’t practice and he can’t play. That’s missing.”

Has anyone separated themselves as the No. 1 fullback? Senior Matt Giachinta, junior Aaron Kemper and freshman Drue Harris have shared carries.

“All of those guys have done some good things but nobody has stood out yet as the guy,” Monken said. “That will help us to have a guy like that.”

Monken has shuffled players in and out of  the offensive line for the better part of his first two seasons.

“Not having an offensive line that we’ve been able to be consistent with (is missing),” Monken said. “That takes time to develop the bodies that you want. That’s no knock on our guys. They play hard and practice hard. The athleticism and the development over  the years of being in the program, going through the prep school and going through their freshmen year and playing some as a sophomore, you start to really grow and become a mature grown man.  That’s makes a difference.

“There’s a difference, (freshman guard) Victor Nieves, though he weigh 296 pounds, lines up against another guy who weighs 296 and that guy is 24 years old and Victor is 19. That’s a difference. I think Victor is going to be a real good player for us. Right now, he’s doing the best he can as a freshman.”

When asked if the play-calling is too conservative, Monken said, “No, we are not (conservative). They are the same plays that we’ve run for years and led the nation in rushing and led the nation in total offense and led the nation in scoring. It’s all the same plays.”

Monken said the offensive staff, “game plan here more meticulously and with much more detail that we’ve ever had to anywhere.”

On throwing the subject of throwing the football more, Monken said, “You got to be able to protect the passer. It’s a little more difficult to do that with our guys and the guys that we are playing against. You have to be smart that you don’t put yourself in bad situations just because you want to take a shot. You take it because it’s calculated. You take it at the right time.”

Army has five quarterbacks on its roster. Only senior A.J. Schurr and Bradshaw appear ready to play. Is recruiting the right quarterback to run the triple option a challenge for Monken and his staff?

“A lot of (quarterback prospects) are getting recruited at other schools to play other positions,” Monken said. “Some are getting recruited by the other academies. That’s always a battle. There are a lot of quarterbacks out there. Hopefully, we are going to end up with enough of them. Air Force signed 11 quarterbacks last year. We have two. We are not going to take 11. That’s not fair to tell a kid, ‘You can come here and play quarterback.’ They ask, ‘How many quarterbacks you are recruiting?’ and, ‘You say only 11.’ Over a four-year period, you are going to take 44 quarterbacks, you only play with one.”

Davis expressed frustration with the offense’s production.

“We had five offensive linemen out at times,” Davis said. “We are starting two freshmen (offensive linemen). We don’t have a healthy quarterback. We are shuffling guys in and out and starting two freshmen slots. We are not there yet. Shoot, we are disappointed. We want to win. Our kids work so hard and we want them to have success. We want it for them more than anything.

“They are doing the things that we ask them. We are just not there yet. We have to keep chopping wood. We are going to get there.  We are going to get there upfront.”

Davis pointed to games against Penn State and Rice where a banged-up offensive line more than held it own.

“We’ve been there at times upfront even without being healthy this year,” Davis said. “I think Penn State has a pretty good front and we balled against them. I think Rice has pretty good players and we moved the ball against them. It’s not all a disaster. Our guys have done really good things at times. Saturday (a 20-3 loss at Air Force) is not good enough. We can do better. They handled us. They beat us up upfront. That falls on me. We have to do a better job.

“We can make excuses if we want. You know who started, who played and who is available and who is not and who is hurt. Everybody can figure it out if they choose to look at it the right way.”

Davis said, “Our guys are determined. They are giving us everything they have. We’ll going in the right direction. I know it. The people in the building know it and that’s what is important.”

Nov. 10 practice blog

Freshman quarterback Chris Carter continues to get his share of reps in practice.

Army coach Jeff Monken said sophomore starting quarterback Ahmad Bradshaw and senior A.J. Schurr are still not 100 percent. Bradshaw didn’t throw much if at all during practice. Schurr, who didn’t practice last week, took snaps under center during the full-pads session.

Monken said Carter, who played at Army Prep last season, isn’t ready for game action yet but may be pressed into duty at some point due to the injuries to the other quarterbacks.

“We’ve really started to try and get him (Carter) ready,” Monken said. “He’s as close as going into the game as anybody we’ve got at quarterback. He’s fast. He’s a really good athlete. He’s got good feet. He’s just got a lot to learn about playing and playing that position and playing at this level. He’s never taken a snap at the collegiate level…

Monken said receiving more snaps in practice can only help Carter’s development. Quarterbacks coach Mitch Ware gave Carter a vote of confidence for reading a triple-option play correctly Tuesday. Carter connected on deep passes to Edgar Poe and Christian Poe during practice.

“”Getting lots of reps with the offense, doing that for a year or two, then when it becomes his turn, he’s had a lot of snaps and gotten snaps in a situation where a guy is banged up,” Monken said…”It’s always difficult if you are the third-string quarterback and the first two guys go down, then all of sudden you are trotting off the sideline for the first snaps of your college career with the game on the line. That’s not an easy situation to be in. We are trying to prepare him to be our quarterback. He’s a very conscientious young man and I think he’s going to be a good player for us.”

Freshman slotback Jordan Asberry, junior safety Tevin Long and sophomore tackle Brett Toth were among the players, who didn’t practice. Asberry hurt his ankle in the second quarter against Air Force and did not return.

Junior slotback Joe Walker practiced pretty fully even though he was wearing a limited jersey. Monken said Walker didn’t play against Air Force due to injury.

“He’s still hurt,” Monken said. “I think he can help us but he’s so slowed down right now because of his injury. He’s not a real fast guy to begin with. He’s got  good speed not great speed. When he’s hurt, he’s a lot slower.”

Walker has Army’s longest play (71-yard touchdown pass from A.J. Schurr against UConn) and fifth-longest play (63-yard touchdown run against Eastern Michigan) of the season.

Senior nose tackle T.J. Atimalala, junior linebacker Andrew King and freshman linebacker Calen Holt were among the players wearing Ranger jerseys for perfect effort against Air Force Saturday.

Holt was honored for his special teams play. He was pressed into duty as Army’s long snapper for punts when senior Connor Farley couldn’t make the trip to Air Force because he was sick.

“It was the first time he snapped in a game and he did a good job,” Monken said. “He had one that was off target a little bit but I tell you that’s not easy to go in there and do that for the very first time ever in a college football game.”

Monken said Army may stay with Holt as the long snapper because of his ability to cover punts. Holt has consistently been on the first guys to get down field.

“That’s whole different element that isn’t there with Connor,” Monken said.

Senior tight end Kelvin White snapped for Army’s 46-yard field goal by Dan Grochowski. Monken said Farley or freshman tight end Zach Saum will snap on field goals and extra points Saturday.
