Well, it's finally official. Slotback Reggie Campbell and free safety Jeff Deliz have been named team captains for the upcoming 2007 season. Congratulations to both of these players, who figure to play key roles for the Mids next season.
In other news, I just picked up this year's Phil Steele magazine, and will have a full report early next week. There are however some key points I will quickly touch on. Fullback Adam Ballard was named the 6th best fullback in the nation, while Navy's backfield was named the 6th best backfield in the country. As usual, Phil Steele seems high on the Midshipmen, giving his famous yet ambiguous prediction. This year he gives Navy a shot to win nine games, which seems to be the mark many preview magazines are hovering around. Navy is ranked as the second most experienced team based on Phil's projection system, which centers around the amount of upper class men featured on the three deep of the depth chart (Service Academies are almost always in his top ten, including this year, in which Air Force is first and Army is third.) He picks the Midshipmen to match off against the BYU Cougars in next year's Poinsettia Bowl.
I'll be more or less of the Internet for the next few days, but I should be able to up the content next week, including a return to our Non-BCS question edition as well as further previews of Navy's 2007 campaign.
