When Bobby Ross was hired to replace Todd Berry a couple of years ago, he was brought aboard to restore the proud tradition of Army Football… not to the level of Earl "Red" Blaik, but to a level worthy of Jim Young's and Bob Sutton's better teams. At a time when academy football will never be quite what it used to be, Army wanted a coach whose name and credentials would bring back some level of stature to West Point football.

He's toiled in the shadows all year, something a quarterback doesn't usually do. He's been a team-first guy who has taken second place behind Carlton Jones, Scott Wesley, and his offensive unit's rushing attack. He's had more than his share of struggles in his career under center at West Point.

There's no such thing as perfection... not even for the University of Southern California. There are always flaws in each and every football team, small things that could always be better. In college football (and every other sport, for that matter), perfection is always relative.

WEST POINT, N.Y.-- The Iowa State Cyclones scored 14 points to defeat the scrappy Army Cadets in a rare Friday night game at Michie Stadium. Leading 21-14 in the fourth quarter, Army seemed to have held the threatening Cyclones when quarterback Brett Meyer was sacked for a big loss. However, a controversal incidental face mask call gave the Cyclones a first down and two plays later Ryan Kock would score the game tying touchdown for Iowa State.

FOOTBALL (0-2): Baylor 20, Army 10. This was a game that Army could have won. The defense was much improved over the BC game, but the offense couldn't move the ball. Our sole TD came with 45 seconds remaining against Baylor's subs. We missed 2 out of 3 field goals; got stuffed on a 4th and 1 on the Baylor 30; and on 2 other occasions with a first down inside the Baylor 25, we came up empty.

Now that the Navy alma mater is fresh in the minds of the football players who will return for Army next season, the battle to get even better has already commenced. Sure, one season has just ended, but 2005 might as well start now. For a team that made progress in 2004 yet still finished just 2-9, the bar needs to be raised even higher. This past season, two wins was a huge improvement; a winless 2003 will do that for a program.
