    A friend forwarded to me- don't know where this came from but it is dead on. I may root for Army over Navy and AirForce but I'm rooting for all of them including USCGA and USMMA football compared to anyone else in the NCAA (ok well except for when they play VMI:rolleyes:)
    Good Job Navy and AirForce in winning your bowl games:thumb:

    It's not the the size of the dog in the fight that matters but rather the size of the fight in the dog that counts.

    I found a copy of the article you posted at the Missouri site, with at least the author credited:

    Thanks for sharing such a great article. Here I sat watching the game on TV and had no idea any of this was going on. Just shows what a class act all the academies are!

    Sometimes we have to remember not everyone knows the customs of various service academies, and not everyone is impressed by the "cities on a hill". I took offense to those attitudes, including attitudes from fellow, non-CG service members, but at some point, I figured out it's just ignorance, but not willful ignorance.

    Prior to the AF-BYU game in Provo, the following video appeared on the jumbo-tron at Lavell Edwards Stadium. While the rivalry does not compare to Ohio State-Michigan, Auburn-Alabama, Texas-Oklahoma, or USC-UCLA, AF-BYU have had many hard-fought games. The clip was an absolute class act.
