Go Navy!  Beat Army!  A Notre Dame administrator said something in the middle of ND's long winning streak over Navy that perfectly says what I think about Navy's streak over Army: I want them to win one and break the streak sometime, just not this year.

Looking forward to watching this one.  Go USA!!! (Ricky Stanzi style)

PS.  How is Gary Danielson going to contain himself without an SEC team to slobber over for 3 hours.

Why has Navy been so much more sucessful these past few years?  It would seem both academies would have pretty much the same institutional advantages and disadvatnages, yet Navy consistantly has an above average FBS team and Army consistently is 2-9.  Are Paul Johnson and Ken Nimatololo (sp?) just that much better than whatever string of coaches Army has run through?

I think the players have earned the right to have their names on the uniform.  The practice jerseys - and the replicas they sell - are nameless.  A jersey with your name on it is the real deal.  It's a nice extra bit of recognition.

Also, if I'm watching a game that doesn't involve my own team, nameless jerseys are really annoying.  It'd be one thing to memorize our players' numbers, but I'm not going to do that for every team.

I love watching these games cause it's like watching football circa 1951 except in high-def:

1. No passing

2. No field goal kicking

3. Single wing offenses

All we need is for the head coach to like up a smoke on the sidelines and we've time-travelled.

I was lucky enough to go to the Army Navy game last year. If you are a college football fan You should see this game live at some point in your life.

Far from a football expert and even less a triple option expert, but the Navy quarterback looks like he can throw quite well, it seems a waste to not at least incorporate that dimension a bit more.

I guess I should cheer for Navy to win considering my two brothers in the Navy...but man, I really want to see Army end a decade long losing streak.  Hopefully they can pull it out today.

$1000 per school, Red Lobster?  I had never listened closely to that until now.  Jesus, that is a garbage amount of money; that must be the cheapest national tv add time anyone can buy.

Clutch drive by the Middies.  

This may be Army's only shot to beat Navy's QB...this kid is going to be a royal pain in their ass for the next 3 years.
