    The game is today. Did I read here recently that Army has a white running back?

    Andy Davidson had around 900 yards rushing last year, but has been demoted to backup this year.....He and the starter are both juniors, so we will see what happens next year....

    They also have many backup backs, Connor Slomka (spelling???), being one of them.....

    It looks like Anthony Gargiola is going to start and get a lot of carries at fullback for Navy, along with Zach Abey as their running qb.......

    Abeys replacement just busted a 68yd td run, admittedly it was a nice run. What are the chances of Abey transferring next year ?!

    I don't know what the requirements are for transfers from the Service adacemies. Abey should be the starter though - he has been very good and a dominant runner. No reason to bench him except for the fact he was injured while white. Do you think that Navy would of benched the media darling quotaback a few years ago if he had been out injured for a few games?

    Typical game for Davidson......2 carries, 9 yards.....
    Gargiola hasn’t seen action for Navy
    Slomka hasn’t for Army.....
    Not a good start for our guys.....

    Bit of a bore fest really. I know they are run heavy teams and the weather is terrible. But surely they should of been able to complete or attempt a pass! Not many of our guys to cheer on either really.

    If these guys weren't real student athletes I would never watch this game but I can't criticize the type of athletes that college sports is meant for.
