There is a gentlemen that truly gets it and what the Army-Navy game is about. Listening to him after the game talking about the dedication of the kids at both academies to their country, going into the academies at a time of war and how this is a football game and there is a bigger picture... it was a perfect commentary on the game and what it means to the cadets and midshipmen. He was getting choked up and had to wipe away some tears. Its good to see coaches as invested in this thing as the players are.

Agree, but I was rooting for Army so they could both go bowling.

Yeah that would have been nice. Love to see the academies be successful and get to bowls and win them.

Navy winning put UCLA in the EagleBank Bowl against Temple. LOL.

Air Force made a bowl :) and yes this is one of the reasons its fun to watch the academies play. They always give 100% and you know they are thinking about more than a future NFL contract

I like that the Navy coach said despite his brother being in the Army he had to pull for Navy o he would not let him in his house.

I love this game it captures everything that is right about college football.

What GM said, that is why I love to watch this game so much and make it a point to make sure I watch it no matter where I am.

Out of curiosity...when was the last time Army beat Navy?

I'm simply going on memory but I believe they said 2001 yesterday or somewhere around there.
