    With all due respect to YSU, I'm looking forward to starting the season with a Div. I-A team this year. Also, Navy has put together a few good seasons in a row, so this game should be a good test for us to get things started. :osu:

    Agreed. Navy will definately be better prep for USC... the only worry is that gentlemen at the United States Naval Academy will be a problem if people are looking past.

    Navy will be a good test of our discipline on defense. Keeping assignment is the key to stopping the triple option. Not sure it's better than YSU as a prep because their offense is so unique.

    I'm gonna miss this one...and the one on the 12th...ugh. Let's just get through this one injury free and with a W. I'm sure everybody will be eyeing the game on the 12th.

    Navy runs the same offense as Centerville

    I know the team wont ENTIRELY be focusing its preceding practices on this one game, but I think it benefits us a lot to be able to practice a little longer for the triple option, as opposed to playing this team in the 3-4 game.

    I like Navy but I don't really like playing option teams. I'd rather get a look from a traditional offense school even if they're weaker

    Youre right. What Im saying is that it benefits us bc it is so different, and I wouldnt want the team to not be 100% prepared for it. Im sure we're also in agreement that the team will be getting plenty of USC looks throughout the summer as well!

    Assignment football beats triple option. As long as you don't miss tackles.

    This should be a great game to watch. I'm hoping Navy brings a good contingent of Midshipmen with them. Seeing a good size block of uniforms in the stands will be cool.

    Love giving the service acadamies games in the Horseshoe and on the road.

    Absolutely, especially when your guys are bigger and faster. The problem with defending for the "better" schools is when their guys decide that they're fast enough to showboat and break assignment. Then the option has you right where it wants you. Georgia Tech chewed up a talented, but undisciplined UGA team this year and Navy runs the system better than GT did last year.

    Navy does run the option better than GT but they don't have nearly the talent that GT does. This game does scare me though because of how uncommon it is. I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see Navy run for around 200 yards or so and have many of us wondering how we're going to stop anyone at all all year. We're just going to have to understand that this Navy's offense is just very hard to stop because of all the possibilities and responsabilities. Should be a GREAT test but of course I don't see how Navy can keep Pryor and the offense under control.

    Glad I saw this thread. Just got myself a room near campus for the weekend and I will get tickets.

    Missed out on USC but the ticket prices for that one will be nuts, anyway. I'll watch that one on the tube in prime time.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the Bucks open the season versus the Middies in the Shoe. :cheers:

    Agree on all counts. I remember playing the USNA in the Liberty Bowl my senior year in High School. Art Schlichster (butchered that) lead the Bucks to a thrilling 31-28 victory. The first and only time I have seen my Dad root for a team against the Bucks. Not whole-heartedly, mind you.

    Facing the triple option will be a great early test for our young linebacking corp. We will really get to see how well the linebackers are performing (at least against the run) right away.
