    Just wait for the Coast Guard Academy v. Merchant Marine Academy match up on ESPN in 2017....

    It's coming.... I guess I'll be about to watch a Bears game next year!

    One of the Mids on 2/C exchange at CGA said to my son "We bash Army all the time, but really we respect them. You guys (USCGA and USMMA) just hate each other".

    Hate may be strong, but I think there's some dislike.

    It's hard to hate your safety school (KP).

    Truer words have never been spoken. ;)

    I'm excited to see the game televised next year. Not sure how much of a crowd it will draw, but it will be fun to watch regardless.

    My DS said he doesn't hate any of the USCGA cadets that he knows. He developed a friendship with several CG cadets at prep school....when he was tutoring them. :)

    "Hate may be strong, but I think there's some dislike."

    Hey! I don't just make this stuff up! Just reporting what a USNA Middie said. When DS was 4/C one of his classmates had his cover stolen. A "high ranking officer" told him "That's part of the game." I think that was the year Objee's head was stolen. The next year one of DS's classmates stole the USMMA colors from the Admin Building.

    Was your DS excited hearing about what it's like to be at sea as a student? ;)

    Citadel - VMI is the next best military rivalry game, too bad it doesn't have the pageantry and attention of the other one.

    I thought they don't always play anymore. I may have imagined that though...

    Valid point, being at sea as a student is definitely not what they make it out to be. Chip paint for 8 hours, clean tanks for 4, and the boatswain's gotta call you a retard at least twice every hour.
