With a week off from Army football during the bye week, I counted on a leisurely weekend with little worry about what happens on the gridiron.
Then this happened.
The reason why I can't stand Navy to begin with was their win over 2007's Pitt team, and this game gave me plenty of flashbacks. I swear, I can't remember the last time Navy did something that didn't piss me off.
oh. oh, yeah...
What's worse is I've got to go ahead and root for Navy again this weekend in light of their opponent. So can somebody please tell me why I can't simply enjoy college football??
So where to turn for good news?...
Can't find solace in the BCS polls, which is looking more and more like the same old thing every year.
I guess I respect most conference leaders at this point of the season. Just find a way for the Columbus Buckeyes to fall apart and I can live with all of that.
So the old standby.... what's Sal got to say about a rested Army team? Well he tells us that Geoff Bacon is going to play this week... also:
Despite some of the poor results to this point the next game is the biggest one so far. With the CIC trophy hanging in the air, Army needs both service academy wins to win hardware.
Army’s top two quarterbacks Angel Santiago and A.J. Schurr practiced Monday for the first time together since Wake Forest week (Sept. 16-20).
So it's as big a week as ever. No reason not to be up for Air Force. Win and the season will have a riveting finish.... lose and I hate to say it, but it's wait and see for next year.
