Too windy for the paratroopers

UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas -- The pregame festivities were supposed to include some paratroopers, but after the plane circled, the decision was made to abort the attempt because of strong winds.

The windy conditions didn't help the Army flag bearers, who were really fighting it as they waved the huge West Point and Army logo flags. It will be interesting to see how that plays a part in the game. Wind shouldn't bother the triple option attack of Army, but SMU quarterback Kyle Padron will have to adjust to it.
