What started so well
Went all downhill after that
Rutgers still running

  1. think the wku
    defense will be replaced by
    the rutgers defense

    • haha i’m so dumb

    • More about the players than the scheme

    • Thanks for blocking me on twitter. Talk about cop out.

    • I’ll miss your expert analysis of “just run the good plays!” but I think we’ll both live.

    • “Run the good plays”

      Yeah that’s what I was saying the entire time.

      Here is to a win this weekend, hope you enjoy watching down in FLA in your arm chair.

    • If any of you doubt me and/or care, you can judge for yourself:

      Enjoy the game from wherever you watch it, I guess?

  2. How does Navy win?
    Run run run run run run run
    run run pass run run.

    How did Rutgers win?
    Run run run run run run run
    run run pass run run.

  3. A hard game to watch.
    Fridge ran it all day again!
    Almost overcame…

  4. F-o-u-r-th
    Quarters allowed Navy back
    Not quite enough though

  5. First and goal at 6
    Three stupid plays in a row
    A gut wrenching loss

    • stupid because it didn’t work? Pass was there, didn’t block.

    • Option worked that drive
      Because Rutgers played prevent
      Not so inside 10

    • Exactly. Thank God we have you around to explain this stuff.

    • I see your point, about the prevent defense, but couldn’t a 5 Wr QB draw, Chris Swain wildcat, a Jarod Bryant (also I believe ’13 SJ St game) throw back type play, pistol option (Air Force ’12 game), type of play worked? I beieve there was enough time to at least attempt one running play. We used the Pistol/Shotgun often early in the game. Perhaps something to break up the predictability and their blitz/rush scheme. I am justin posing this as a point of dicussion. I am by no means a professional coach. I leave that to Coach N and J…..who have done a helluva job since PJ left!!!!!!!

    • Could it have? It’s easy to list a bunch of plays, but it gets harder if you have to explain what you saw in the Rutgers defense that would lead you to believe that those plays would work. And if you’re suggesting wildcats and halfback passes to the quarterback then you’re really just throwing anything out there to see what might stick. You can’t possibly think that a halfback pass to the quarterback would be easier to execute than what was called, could you? The players have to execute regardless of the play call, but play calls are a lot easier to complain about.

      If Coach Jasper had called any of that wacky stuff and it didn’t work, I can only imagine the complaints I’d be seeing today.

  6. Navy start diverse
    Rutgers can not contain their joy
    navy give you sack

    Sorry bad haiku…no run by the goal line?!??!

  7. It is hard to write
    decent haiku when injured.
    Punched the TV screen.

  8. In Ken and Ivin
    And Buddy we trust to fix
    what needs fixing now

  9. Missed the entire game.
    I’m a proud grandfather now.
    Class of 32?

  10. Good day for conflict
    Son’s swim meet trumped Navy game
    Followed Twitter though

    The darn DVR
    Got the whole sordid affair
    Do I watch or not. . .

    • You could watch the game
      to see Coach Flood’s haircut from
      eighth wing barbershop

    • Get a root canal, spend a month with your mother-in-law, but don’t watch that game.

  11. Rutgers ran and ran
    Navy had to pass and pass
    Exciting finish

  12. Well I guess this means
    we’re not winning the Big Ten.
    Jimmies: Unrustled.

  13. Early momentum
    Stopped when we missed a field goal
    Now a common theme?

    • Definitely a huge play in the game.

  14. Rest of the schedule
    Will watch Rutgers game film to
    Contain our run game

    • Other teams have lined up like that and we’ve gashed them. Again, it’s more about the players and how they are coached than how they lined up.
