Army at Buffalo

We are in Amherst. New York today to see a match-up between programs under fairly new competent coaching staffs. One is already making significant progress.  The other is s work in process. Army under third-year Head Coach Jeff Moncken is a surprising 3-0.  Their defense is looking solid and their offense is coming around with FB Andy Davidson powering yardage up the middle to give the option a basis to get the yardage around the ends.  Buffalo (0-2) is under HC Lance Leipold in his second season here in Amherst.  Leipold, who led Wisconsin-Whitewater to six national championships at the D3 level, led the Bulls to a 5-7 season a year ago.  Still working on building his roster, he is a year or some from getting things turned around for this MAC program.  Army has the momentum coming in today, but the Bulls will be looking to build with a tough chore ahead of them to stop Army’s running game in their home game tonight. Kickoff is at 7 pm.

About Steveo

This website is dedicated to my unique and ongoing adventure to continue to see every major Division 1A (I despise the moniker “FBS”) football team play in person at least once. I’ve seen all 124 teams in existence as of 2013 play and plan to attend games with the five newest editions in the next few years. This also records my ongoing adventures attending as many college football games as possible every season. I “officially” started this crazy goal in 1979. The upcoming 2014 season will be the 35th straight year of sharing this fun endeavor with others in person and through weekly reviews about each game I attend. Entering 2014, I have attended 459 NCAA football games at all levels. My book, Tales from the Tailgate: From the Fan who’s seen ’em all! published in 2011, tells my story over 30 years of when I attended a game in person played by each D1A team for the first time. Now, I haven’t attended a game at every major stadium on each campus (yet) because I’d probably be unemployed and definitely divorced by now. However, I’m proud to report that I remain gainfully employed and have been married to the same woman (“Saint Laurie”) for almost 25 years. We have two kids that have recently ventured away from our home in Byram Township, NJ over the last few few years. Our daughter Alex is a junior at the University of South Carolina (Go Gamecocks!), and our son Eric is now enlisted in the United States Navy (Go Navy!). You will find that my site and my book focus on enjoying a passion for college football and great opportunities to have fun with friends and family around the country.
