Postgame Haiku, Vol. 25

A tale of two halves.
The first was an epic fail.
Second? Poetry.

  1. SMU runs
    Navy passes
    Just win baby……

  2. Navy turnovers
    No SMU turnovers
    How did we still win?

  3. Gutty Navy play
    Ken made super adjustments
    Navy comeback win

  4. A big first half scare
    and second half adjustments.
    An amazing win.

  5. By the way, what the hell is a battleship carrier? For that matter was anyone able to make sense of most of what the announcers said?

  6. The only thing worse than our first half was having to listen to the announcers all game long. Battleship Carrier…that cracked me up almost as much as his “euphemism” comment.

  7. haiku to follow, but the announcers were surprisingly unhomerish

  8. OT victory
    number 2 of the season
    chili excellent

  9. Field goal wins the game
    Navy takes the Gansz trophy
    Season is complete?

    The entire broadcast team for this game was a bunch of rookies – flat out awful. At least Navy got the W.

  10. Ah not with the chili again!

  11. Navy is now 5-2 overall in overtime and have won 5 straight. The win streak started with Pitt in 2007 and was quickly followed by the triple overtime greatness of the win over Notre Dame. I like this trend.

  12. lol dot & nicole.

    for those wondering why ivin kept running up the middle against af, this is why. smu did the same thing, and vince murray had a career day.

  13. The fake, were going for it on fourth down finally worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  14. GT TO win
    and then Navy TO win
    Side by side HD

  15. That was some of the worst play-by-play announcing ever… “Battleship carrier”? A sloppy game with a nice outcome. Surely, Coach Ken will have a word or two with the team.

  16. The going for it on fourth down fake only worked because the coaches changed the play after they read my comment about how old and well known their previous fake going for it play was.

    Your Welcome.

  17. SMU just rushed.
    Not the game most expected.
    Still, Navy just wins!

  18. Not worth a haiku
    But I shoulda wrote one too
    Cuz I like all wins

  19. Clutch kicking lately
    Still very hard on my heart
    Buckley is the man

  20. Great to see the team
    rebound after weak first half.
    wake forest up next!

  21. The key to this win
    Was improving our skill at
    Drawing them offsides.

  22. I apologize
    For starting the “chili” talk.
    But chili is YUM!

    I love Ricky Dobbs.
    Bad first half, great second half,
    Shows true character.

    Enjoyed the “chat” during
    A great day of college ‘ball.
    Go Navy Beat Wake!

  23. Oops, 6 syllables
    in one of those lines above.
    Bad execution.

  24. Go for it on third …
    How did they score now?

  25. Buckley sets
    Buckley kicks
    Buckley clutch

  26. GN921 – how about…

    Buckley stands ready
    The snap. The kick is away
    Buckley clutch again!

  27. Well, I am out of the prognostication business!! Gee whiz! I missed the game–on the road with kids.

    Got text updates, and good grief could I have not been more wrong. I hafta love a team that finds a way to win! It shows good coaching, good captains, and overall good leadership! They know that as a team, some group or individual will step-up and find a way.

    Proud of the guys. Some more tough ones coming. Sure hope there’s some left in the tank!!


  28. what made me hottest?
    the stress inducing close win
    or the kissing cam

  29. Really fugly start
    But the final score … one word…

  30. Nesbitt looked awesome
    Wait this is a Navy blog
    Our game was good too


  31. I liked the Phat chat
    It was good clean Navy fun
    Much like Ring Dance night :-(

  32. “…for those wondering why ivin kept running up the middle against af, this is why. smu did the same thing, and vince murray had a career day.”

    I was not wondering, and not being the football analytical wizard you are, I must admit that the AF game looked that way to me while I was watching it real time from NMCS – that AF was playing high risk up the middle. AF, filling all the gaps, was daring Navy to bust one, which we could not.

    It also looked immediately on TV Saturday night like SMU was playing the same way on D.

    Whether it was SMU just did not have the talent, or whether Navy (O Line, Fullback) learned from the AF game, don’t know. Or maybe both.

    But I expect your post-game analysis will fill us dumbies in.

  33. I’m with ya newt91
