When the president and his entourage went to the center of the field for the coin toss, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Army General Dempsey and Army Chief of Staff Ray Odierno got noticeably more applause than did the president or vice president. What they got was polite applause.
Later: turnovers are killing Army.
Later: now trailing 14-7 late in the 1st half. As is to be expected from these two teams, remarkably few penalties.
Later: tied at 14 at the half. My two favorite words this time of year are "Touchdown, Army!" Have been for 28 years....
Later: Not another Army fumble! And on a kickoff return, too. :(
Later: Army, down by 6, essentially loses the game on a bad offsides call with under 3 minutes left.
End: bad call, not a bad game. Army hurt itself in this one--but still played respectably.
