My favorite day of the football season...

Since my college didn't have a football program, my adopted nearby team is the United States Military Academy.  Navy has beaten them 7 straight but it appears the Black Knights are much improved this year.  Either way, you can't help but be proud of the young men in both of these programs.

Go Army!

Sink Navy!

Good old fashioned battle of trench warfare and 2 outstanding defensive coaching efforts.  Army didn't have it in the red zone and they haven't all season.  If they could have converted in the red zone this season, they were likely looking at 7-5 or 8-4 rather than 5-7.  Good learning experience under Coach Ellerson and they can take with them the first victory over an SEC team in over a decade.  Expect continued improvement next season for the Black Knights.

That SEC team was the worst in that division, and the game was being played at West Point, but a victory over an SEC team nonetheless, I suppose. LOL Laughing

Since I am a Navy vet NW I had to root for Navy. But I will tell you when I lived in North Jersey, I had season tickets for 3 years to West Point and I always tell people that I have been to many stadiums in the country and the best venue is West Point especially when the leaves are changing. My wife loved going there and even though I am Navy I miss it.
