I watched in disgust as the football team was hung out to dry this past Saturday. The defense was as ill-prepared as any and the inability to score from within the red zone was baffling. Time after time, I said to my son, “Navy must have 12 men on the field because they seem to have two to three defenders on the receivers.” When it was first and goal at the two, we came away with no points. Navy’s first play after taking over was a 39 yard run by the fullback — another run — and an eventual TD.
