Twitter reacts to Houston waiving white flag as Army rolls

It didn’t take long for Army to establish itself as the dominant team during Saturday’s Armed Forced Bowl against Houston, which started waiving the white flag almost immediately.

The Black Knights got on the board immediately, finishing off an impressive opening drive with a one-yard run by Kelvin Hopkins after shutting Houston down on its first offensive possession.

After forcing another punt the next time the Cougars hit the field, Army got the ball back, and Hopkins went right back to work. This time, he used his wheels to go 76 yards longer, in exceedingly more impressive fashion. On the next offensive play of the game, Army’s defense forced a turnover and scored its second touchdown in 15 seconds (watch here).

Just before halftime, the Black Knights scored their sixth touchdown in the first two quarters to take a 42-7 lead.

Houston really didn’t show up. The game was pretty much over before the opening whistle. Folks had quite a bit to say about that on Twitter.

Yeah, it’s been really bad. And apparently, this feeling of defeat was permeating the atmosphere well before Saturday’s bowl game.
