    Left out of bowl mix for now, all the Army Black Knights and coach Jeff Monken 'want is a chance to play' after memorable 9-2 season

    Army football coach Jeff Monken woke up early Sunday, anxious to find out who his team would face in a bowl game.

    The Black Knights had posted a 9-2 record, capped by Saturday's victory over Air Force that secured them the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy. Army had an agreement to play in the Radiance Technologies Independence Bowl against a Pac-12 opponent. By mid-afternoon Sunday, Army thought it would have the matchup secured.

    "OK, we should know something by 2:30,' but 2:30 came and went. 'We should know something by 3 o'clock,' but 3 o'clock came and went," Monken told ESPN on Sunday night. "And then we started getting word that we were getting shut out."

    After a surge of Pac-12 teams opted out of bowl season and other teams, according to Monken, threatened to opt out if paired against Army, the Independence Bowl canceled its game and the Black Knights were left without a postseason destination. Monken and Army administrators informed the team following dinner at a 6:15 p.m. ET meeting.

    "We had guys in tears," Monken said. "We pulled off the biggest wins of these seniors' career, they just won the Commander-in-Chief's Trophy back, that's going to be their legacy, and they're looking forward to playing in a bowl game one time together, before they go off in the United States Army, and we're sitting here telling them, 'Sorry, guys, you can't play.'

    Just sayin': We're talking West Point cadets here about a cancelled football game. If they were crying I don't think the coach should have publicized it.

    SEC...It just means more.

    SEC sure does mean more bowl games 12 of the 14 teams got one and 6 of those teams had a losing record (albeit a loss to another SEC team which they actually count as a win too...8D). Obviously those self imposed sanctions did cost LSU a bowl game.....:lol:

    See earlier post (above)...somebody tell me Missouri (5-5), Tennessee (3-7), South Carolinas (2-8), Mississippi State (3-7), Arkansas (3-7), Ole Miss (4-5), and/or Kentucky (4-6) are more deserving of a bowl game than Army (9-2)
