The Squids are 5-0 now after beating Air Force last night on a late field goal . . . the first one their kicker has kicked all season. Nice work, kid! Way to rise to the occasion! If Navy beats Army in December (and Army is on an 18-game losing streak, so that seems on the surface to be likely), they will repeat as Commander in Chief Trophy holders for the first time since before I was at the Academy. Then, of course, there’s the other 800-pound psychological gorilla that Navy has to deal with this year. They haven’t been Notre Dame since 1963 (with Roger Staubach), despite playing them every year. Is this the year? I think it might be!
