College Game Day Open Thread

Army vs. Navy. 

The cold, gray day.  The triple Option.  The passion. 

Both teams will end the day in tears.

Pure football.

Pure football is a great way to describe this game. It’s amazing what these young men and women do for our country and the sacrifices they make for our freedom.

Serious question, why is everyone on here for Navy? It seems to me that Army is an underdog? Just curious about people's reasoning. I can be convinced either way, but I want to pick a team before the game, haha

No sir, The Brave and Few, 92 right here. Played in the John Hancock bowl against Alabama and Derrick Thomas. One of the highlights of my athletic career. Except...it was El Paso... :(

Got to see the game last year. Didn’t have a particular rooting interest, but the game was in my Dad’s and my bucket list. It was so cool to see Army finally break the streak.

This game is pure college football. None of these guys are playing to get into the league. They’re playing for each other and pure love of the game.

Also some Div 2 (or whatever they are called these days) playoff games on today starting at noon.  New Hampshire at South Dakota St at 3pm should be a chilly game to watch.  That will be the go to during Army/Navy game commercials.

While I have a handful of friends who are Navy veterans, my father in law was in the Army for 26 years. Other family members are current and former Army soldiers as well. Go Army!
