For every football game, win or lose, there's an immense amount of intense preparation that goes in ahead of time.  A lot of that work falls on the shoulders of the 'scout team' - guys most fans haven't heard of, but likely will someday.  The scout team plays an integral role in practice, doing its best to simulate the opponent.  The scouts morph from themselves into Army, or Miami or, Toledo or Clemson in an effort to simulate what gameday will be like.  Against Army, however, that task is a little different.  The Black Knights are one of only four FBS teams that run the triple option offense, a confusing shell-game of a running attack.  For the Cardinals scout team, that meant added hours of studying, extra prep and some bumps and bruises along the way.  Watch and see what life for the scouts was like during 2012's week nine.
