The chances of anyone reading my nonsense anymore just got crushed like an Air Force safety trying to tackle Kyle Eckel. Bill Wagner has started a Navy sports blog. Navy fans now have a blog by someone who actually knows what he’s talking about. Those of you who aren’t interested in the opinions of someone who actually attends practices and talks to players and coaches, feel free to stick around here!
In other news, Ron Snyder has been busy lately. Don’t miss his interview with Paul Johnson as well as his piece on Antron Harper. Antron seems to be the writers’ favorite this year, probably due to a combination of having an interesting background and being friggin’ awesome. His isn’t the only profile out today, though; Christian Swezey wrote a great piece on Clint Sovie.
Speaking of Wagner, he talked with Wayne Hardin about his time coaching Navy and Temple, plus his efforts to sell tickets to Friday’s game. I’m sure there are a lot of people who laugh at Hardin’s goal of selling out Lincoln Financial Field because there’s no way that it’s going to happen. Those people are missing the point. The important thing here is that Temple is making the effort. Aiming high is something that they haven’t done before, at least for football. It’s a good sign for a downtrodden program. I still hope we crush them, though.
