Resurgent Army looks to end Navy dominance

15 posts in this topic

(By JOHN KEKIS, AP Sports Writer) Rich Ellerson is sponsoring a cadet from Slovenia at West Point, and Thanksgiving only validated what Army's second-year coach has long known.p/His family came to visit. It was only their second time in the country, Ellerson said. Only the dad speaks a little bit of English. They don't know football from third base. They'd never been to West Point before, and they drive through the Thayer Gate. By the time they get to our house, they don't know anything about football, but they know we better beat Navy.

I commissioned USS Bunker Hill in 1986. One of 2 Aegis missile cruisers I commissioned during my career.

Best of luck today, guys. Hope for a good game and no injuries.

So how many of these guys go pro? Aren't they contractually obliged to serve their country when they graduate?

I can only think of Wahle as a guy that went to a military academy that's in the NFL.

Mike Wahle was actually the last guy drafted from Navy in 1998. Only 15 players have ever been drafted from Navy since 1947. Roger Staubach and Napolean McCallum, whom I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with when he was on active duty, are probably the best known of the bunch.

Caleb Campbell was briefly on the Lions roster, and Air Force's Chad Hall is on Philly's right now.

    • Ross for me. Davis is good, but the same way Ross' previous injuries give people pause, so should Davis' competition. You can only play who's on your schedule, but Davis played against inferior talent and, for the most part, got shutdown against good schools (Wisconsin, OSU). He did dominate the other schools so I'm not saying he won't be a good pro. I just think this T.O. talk and saying he's going to beast out could be premature.  Davis last game he was shut down by Wisconsin and then, due to injury, hasn't run at the combine or his pro day. For me, that's a little risky too at #8.  I wouldn't take Ross at 8, but what we need based off of our roster is a player of Ross' abilities and strengths, IMO. I wouldn't be mad with Davis, but I prefer Ross and would not want either at #8.
    • In kindergarten we had weekly job theme where you could play pretend and be a worker or a customer. One week they had a salon type deal going on. My parents never instilled any sort of gender identity within me, so I went and got my hair did. I didn't know I was a boy and wasn't supposed to do that. The girls didn't think it was weird either.. Never turned gay or tranny.     My hair looked fuging luxurious too, btw.
