- The Pensacola News Journal has released an article about the rise of Navy athletics (in particular football) over the past 4 years. Standard stuff pretty much, although some may find it interesting that "Florida State tried to arrange a game with Navy in Jacksonville. Coach Bobby Bowden placed a call." I remember hearing something along those lines, but it caught me a little off guard. Personally, I hate the FSU program, hate the coach, and aside from this fine piece of Slovakian Beauty, don't really care for the place. Aside from that, FSU, as it stands, would beat us, and that would be bad. Another interesting note to make about the article is that of Navy's fan base. While large, one has to admit the Institution has a rather small active fan base online. 1 Official Site (Navysports.com), 1 Unofficial Sight with message Board (GoMids.com), and 1 Semi-acclaimed Blog (Yours Truly here at Pitch Right) make up the extent of updated Navy Sports internet content.
Even Jenn Sterger isn't incentive enough to destroy those FSU convicts
- CFN.com continues slugging through its previews of all 117 Div 1A teams. Today featured Connecticut, which I feel may be this year's biggest trap game. I don't like going up their to play a team that features such a good running game and strong defense. Let's hope that the O-line problems persist and the QB situation remains in swing all year long.
- Notre dame continues the annexation of New Jersey, with yet another major NJ recruit from the class of 2007 signing with the Irish. This time DE Justin Trattou, who from here on out is to be known as Tratteaux. The good news? Yet another NJ recruit Rutgers and Coach Schiano fail to get. Bad news? Coach Weis and Notre Dame aren’t just reloading, they’re on full blown auto with an infinite clip.
- Rivals.com lists its 100 Top High School Seniors-to-Be. Why you should care, I have no idea, unless your interested in learning the extent of talent that Navy will have to overcome to beat Notre Dame in the coming years.
More fun later this week
