No college football today?! Army Navy is worth watching though. Also the FCS playoffs I guess. Coastal Carolin at NDSU at 11AM on ESPN too.

Air Force has the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, but Army-Navy is always the big event. I was in the Air Force in the 80s and early 90s, and I didn't know anyone who paid the slightest attention to Air Force sports. This was before widespread cable coverage, so perhaps it is different today. We couldn't watch Air Force football, so I guess it isn't surprising that few paid much attention to it. Was it different with Army and Navy in those days?

The DII & DIII playoffs are on ESPN3 as well. MSU-Mankato plays in one of the semifinals against Concord at 3, while West Georgia (Fellow Gulf South Conference member with Florida Tech) plays Colorado State-Pueblo at 6:30 in the other semifinal. Only one FBS game but still plenty of good football to watch today.

I don't know about others, but I always was interested in the Army-Navy game. A tradition of our Arrmed Forces.


God Bless America!!!

Even though Air Force usually has a better team, people pay a lot of attention to Army-Navy, and little to Army-Air Force or Navy-Air Force. Part of it may be a holdover from when Army and Navy were among the powers in college football. The Air Force Academy sort of feels like an afterthought, and I say this as a veteran of the U.S. Air Force.

Yup. It's almost always a game of raw emotion and terrific hitting. And I'm a fan of the pageantry.

Been in USAF for three years now. I agree, at least among enlisted folks, not much interest at all in AFA athletics. I do know that officers' clubs on most installations have viewing parties for the AF-Army and AF-Navy games. But yes, Army-Navy will always be the big one, which is fine. We all know that the Navy-AFA game is the one which determines the CIC Trophy anyways.

NDSU now up 39-32 with less than 10 minutes to play. Fantastic game if you're not watching.

Coastal Carolina's Coach has an epic toupee and a horrible QB.

Hey your favorite team moves on! I bet you are happy!

Hey asshole. I never said they were my favorite team.

I admire the success they have had, they are close to me, and whether you like it or not, I will root for the Bison in the FCS playoffs..

So suck an egg.

Mankato absolutely crushing Concord - 44-7 to begin the 4th.

That plus the NDSU victory - nice job today by Minnesota kids!
