Army/Navy Football Marathon

Friday, December 11, 2009

Just wanted to throw it out there that CBS College Sports Network is showing a marathon of Army/Navy games today. Some of the games featured are the 2000, 2001, 2007 and 2008.

Also featured in the mix is an interview of Rich Ellerson and Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo.

Don't forget about Stephen Anderson's player diary, and check out Sal Interdonato's game prediction over on Inside Army Football.

Steelman gets a spotlight piece from CNNSI and another from ESPN.

Steelman watched this game from the stands last year. As the starting quarterback for the U.S. Military Academy Prep School, Steelman said he knew he’d get to experience this game as a member of the Army football team, but he didn’t think it would be so soon. Steelman has played in all 11 games this season, which he said would help his nerves against the Midshipmen. He leads the team in passing with 560 yards, three touchdowns and an interception and leads the team in rushing with 690 yards and five scores. Steelman accounts for 40 percent of both the Black Knights offense and scoring.

A good year for Steelman, but that last 40% figure will have to improve for this team to improve on 5 wins.

A look at the notable 1963 game. My uncle lettered for Army football in 1962 and graduated from USMA in 1963, so I always enjoy stories from that era.

Another round of game notes from GoArmySports.

And lastly, I'll post the online video stream tomorrow FWIW, but if you can't find this one on TV I don't know what to tell you.
