With no Fightin' Blue Hens till Spring, I thought we could use this thread to discuss games and other teams playing a Fall schedule.

Interesting match up tonight with Navy - BYU

The post Malcolm Perry era begins for the Mids.

Horrid start for Navy. BYU backs running through huge holes. 21-0 Cougars midway through second quarter and BYU driving again.

Yep It's been a struggle all the way around for Navy.

Navy had ZERO physical contact or hitting in their camp leading up to the game and it certainly showed.

How do you do that and actually play football? The answer is you don’t. Navy likely didn’t have the option not to play. They obviously prepared like they didn’t want to play. They were sacrificial sailors.

They did mention Navy hasn't practiced tackling which showed but so many guys were out of position too.

Boy lots of work to do before they play at Tulane next week.

BYU will run the table with their revamped schedule.

Or they played like they didn't prepare (not sure how you detect they didn't "want" to play). Very un-Navy looking team there. Army, obviously playing a much weaker opponent, looked far more ready in week 1 than Navy did. Plus they managed to get the whole Corps of Cadets into the stadium for the game (spread them out over the whole stadium). Navy couldn't get a waiver from the Maryland governor to do the same with their Midshipmen. Could be a very long year for Navy football.

It is going to be a long season if they have zero physical contact or hitting in practice during the season. How can you prepare to play football without any physical contact or hitting? Not hitting in preseason would fit my definition of not wanting to play at the university/program level not the individual player level.

Yeah, I don't understand what and how they're doing it there, there does appear to be what are going to be issues going forward. They looked terrible.

The stadium itself is not on official Academy grounds, so I think they said Maryland authorities (GOP gov) had the final say. ... I don't know though.

I knew the Maryland governor turned down Navy, and although I knew the difference in the locations of the stadiums (Army on federal land, Navy likely not on federal land) I didn't realize that's what went down. Confirmed in the article, New York advised Army not to exceed the 50 person crowd size (or the zero crowd size for major sporting events). Army says since the cadets are restricted to the campus, and quarantined coming in and are tested regularly, it's like their own bubble. Apparently they didn't sit them behind the visiting team and the 4400 cadets all spaced out in the stands.
