Undefeated at home for 4 seasons. A few ties in there, but what a football team for my 4 undergraduate years.

How about if we play at least one game before we condemn ourselves to a life of mediocrity?
Goals can be changed and upgraded as time marches on. Did you really expect the newest coach in the Big Ten (Eleven or Twelve) to say at his introductory press conference, "Screw the Big Ten, we are aiming at bigger fish?"
People, take a chill pill and let us all get to September and game time.

Don't read too much into the final score. Navy played poorly. First, the Army-Navy game was pushed back a week to December 11th so as not to compete with all the conference championships on tv. Second, the Poinsettia Bowl was December 23rd, so Navy only had 11 days in which to take advantage of the extra 15 practices a bowl game allows. Third, Navy had finals the week of December 13th-17th. Navy players take exams as scheduled like every other midshipman. The football team practiced at 6:30 each morning, as it was the only time all the players were available at the same time. Also, most of the Navy coaches were out recruiting that week.
Not making excuses for Navy, but trying to make the point that SDSU was not playing them at their best.
