Army Football Notebook

Anybody have an e-mail to reach MSNsportsNET.com. We might want to flood them with e-mails. The website recently listed its 50 greatest college football players of all-time and get this: Heisman Trophy-winning running back Felix "Doc" Blanchard didn't make the cut.

His old partner in the Army backfield, Glenn Davis, God bless his soul, wasn't even on the list. There were some impressive names on the list. Ahead of Davis from No. 15 down was Vinny Testaverde (QB, Miami), Hugh Green (LB, Pitt), Gino Torretta (QB, Miami), Larry Fitzgerald (WR, Pitt), Billy Sims (RB, Oklahoma), Doug Flutie (QB, Boston College), Jim Brown (RB, Syracuse), John Cappalletti (RB, Penn State), Floyd Little (RB, Syracuse), Tommie Frazier (QB, Nebraska), Ernie Davis (RB, Syracuse), Larry Csonka (RB, Syracuse), Michael Vick (QB, Virginia Tech), Tony Dorsett (RB, Pitt) and Roger Staubach (QB, Navy).

Some of the selections are almost laughable. Tommie Frazier. Gino Torretta. Vinny Testaverde. Here's the link

Seriously, why don't we start a thread on armysports.com listing out top 10 college players of all-time. It will be fun.

Bad timing: As reported in the Colorado Springs Gazette, Air Force offensive coordinator Tim Horton has left the team to coach the running backs at Arkansas, his alma mater.

New AF coach Troy Calhoun will now shift assistants on the offense to make up for the loss of Horton. But, according to several Zoomie sources, Air Force may make a run at former Army offensive coordinator.

Easy, fellas! It's just a joke. There have been no reports of Ross landing a new job, which seems somewhat surprising.

Jim, meet Stan: Stan Brock, or Brooks if this was ESPN.com reporting, met with former Army coach Jim Young this week.

Young met with Brock and his staff while in town to take part in the annual Army Football Golf Classic. We're sure that Brock was open to any suggestions by Young, who isn't pushy, but armysports.com wonders, as do probably all of you, was the O word mentioned.

The option. The scheme that helped Young transform our Black Knights into a perennial winner. Young went 51-39-1 record in his eight seasons as coach at Army. The 1999 inductee into the College Football Hall of Fame guided the Black Knights to three bowl games and is Army's winningest coach since fellow College Football Hall of Fame inductee Earl Blaik roamed the sidelines of Michie Stadium.

The sad thing is, Brock wouldn't even listen to Young if he suggested all-out option. He's locked into Bobby Ross-style scheme. We may be a little hard on Brock, but we wish him the best. Stan Brock, that is.
