    how do you let an air force academy graduate be an official in a rivalry game like this?? sure enough, he made a very, very cheap call on proctor that cost navy 15 yards and maybe a win.

    Could there be a more
    painful way to lose a game
    to these Zoomie pricks?

    My heart goes out to
    Proctor, Teich, and all seniors.
    This loss straight-up sucks.

    Proud to be a fan
    of a team with so much heart
    to stage that comeback.

    I was at the game and cannot recall a loss which hit me harder than this one. I suspect that I was just very confident that Navy would prevail in a very close game.

    Flag on Proctor is baffling at best, inexcusable at worst.

    Navy fought back and deserves credit for their furious comeback and refusal to quit.

    It hurts, but let’s not make excuses. Gutsy comeback and all, we played just well enough to lose. No good.

    I would rather watch
    a full box of puppies sink
    than lose to these guys……..

    But the sun came up,
    albeit reluctantly.
    Will cheer them on Sat.

    i did not hear the comment directly, but my son said that one of the announcers made that comment at the end of the broadcast. reading the wrap-up stories, i see that the official who made the call was from the WAC. maybe that’s what the announcer (and/or my son) meant to say. sorry for the premature comment.

    i was disappointed in the game. i was expecting a much better performance. no tackling, poor reads by proctor, no blocking up front, poor perimeter blocking, missed easy throws badly, missed fg, blocked pat(even if it was a long pat, it shouldn’t have been blocked), and terrible decision at the end to say anything after scoring that td in overtime. the part that has me the most irritated is that with all of the mistakes, they still could’ve won the game. hope they get their heads together, southern miss is a very good team capable of beating most teams.

    Proctor was clearly deserved penalty. Taunted AF player in his left ear and then rolled around him and gave it to him in right ear. Teich knew it. Look at pic in Washington Post of Teich pulling Proctor away from the AF player. Also, TV shows Proctor lied about sayint the AF player was impeding him getting off the field. Clearly when he rolled around the to the AF players other side, he was not at all being impeded. Also, regs warned teams they needed to be in control. So, my take, Proctor got what he deserved.

    Does anyone think for a second that a Big 12 Official makes this same call at a Texas / Oklahoma game that is in OT – we all know the answer – both teams were in each other face the entire game and then to make an example in OT is in excusable – the official should be suspended! Let the teams determine the winner!

    That call was bogus and everyone knows it. AF S Davis swiped at Proctors head after the score (in pile). Should Proctor had done it? No, but still bad call. Great Comback!!!! Kicking game flashbacks…..Tulsa ’06 and Ball St ’07. Hate to be such a sore loser but losing like that to “THEM” SUCKS!!!!!!!
