Watch it, remember it and be in Annapolis 10/05/13 to support your Falcons in their first step to earning the right to bring the Trophy back to the Hill:

PS

After watching this ANYONE who claims that this rivalry and the retention of the CIC Trophy isn't a priority for both programs is full of sh_t!

RE: For your viewing Displeasure 


couldn't watch the whole thing, but a couple of comments: First, that was a well done video. Those kids are warriors and will make great additions to the Joint Force. Second, I threw up in my mouth a little bit watching those fumbles again.

It's clear that the trophy is a priority for Navy. I want to see our guys holding onto the rock and playing with the emotion I see in the Army-Navy game (not necessarily crying on the shoulder of the CJCS) I want hard-nosed, old-school, no fancy uniforms, mud in your teeth style of play at NMCS before I beleive it's a priority for us. I hope it's raining and cold that day.

that video was good...I'm fired up.

Here is the nasty reality of the loss to Navy; the Mids flat out refused to give up and in the 4th quarter manned up, won their individual battles and took full advantage of numerous AF failures i.e. fumbles, missed FG etc.  The most disturbing thing about this loss was that it in no way inspired the Falcons to play to a higher level against Army.  There are more than a few Falcons who need to take a good hard look in the mirror before spring ball starts and determine if who they see reflected is an all show and no go player or one that is ready to prove himself with every snap whether it is practice or game day.

Well said and pretty much my sentiments.

I was ashamed on a lot of levels... From the gimmick unis to the fumbles to the missed chip-shot... But I have chosen to remember something else.

In probably the biggest game of his life, a freshman came off the bench to lead Navy to victory.  Keenan Reynolds will remain the memory I keep of this game.  Thank goodness he's on our side... Crap, he has three more years.

You have to give credit to Navy's Athletic Dept. in the role they played in having this very well made video produced. The content captures the attitude and goals that SA football players have to completely buy into to find success.

If the 2013 Falcons don't get an attitude adjustment that focuses on putting the team first, mental toughness, attention to detail and a refusal to lose that individual battle they all have to fight they are in serious trouble.

The character of a team isn't just shaped by the HC and his staff, it is significantly impacted by the leadership of players. There has to be a clear understanding amongst the players that there is a pecking order based on paying your dues and performing to your highest level at practice and on game day. I think any thoughts of entitlement a player might have because he thinks he was a hot shot recruit or he starts to believe in the hype written about his past performance needs to be put in check by the player leadership and backed up by the coaching staff.

The 2012 Navy football team showed great character on an individual and team level. They trusted a Fr QB to lead them to victories and believed that each man on the team would do his job whether he was on the scout team or a starter on game day. The 2013 Falcons can learn a lot from the 2012 Mids.

Our highlight video should just show fumble after fumble....

Yes, I applaud Navy's heart in their game against us.  We had them on the ropes and they didn't quit; sadly we did...

Re: For your viewing Displeasure 


what do you want us to post?  "yes, that's a video that highlights, among other things, that we beat you guys." i mean the results on the field kinda speak for themselves.

do you want us to join thud and question the heart and commitment of your players?  or do you want me to join you in saying your guys totally quit? would that make you happier?
