If the rumors are true, ND enters the game without three skill players, Floyd, Riddick, and Allen. The offense is immediately under pressure--if our main offensive weapons are absent, the burden falls heavily on untested freshmen and others who have been tested and failed, e.g., Kamara. It would be one thing if we could run the ball, but we cannot. Thus, I see a lot of 3 and outs.
In turn, the Navy will run the ball all over the place. They will have 3 or 4 long (7-8 minute) drives. If they score on, say, two of these drives, the score at the half could well be 14-0 or 14-3.
Kelly panics. In the second half, we throw down after down. We might get lucky, maybe score once. Meanwhile, Navy controls the ball for most of the half. They score twice, maybe get a field goal. The game ends with a score like 31-13, or if we have been stalwart, 27-20.
Kelly and his staff are exposed, and his administration goes into what a friend has described as a "death spiral". A loss to Navy in his first year sets the tone regardless of what happens the rest of the year; or, regardless of what he does in coming years if he is allowed to stay. He is dead man walking.
With the loss to Navy, we go to 4-4. A closer-than-it-should-be win at home against Eastern Oklahoma Tech, a shellacking at the hands of the Utes, a scrimmage in Yankee Stadium, and a prison rape in LA. 6-6. Weis redux.
