I’m very interested to see how things progress with the academies and football. I read an article the other day, featuring Navy’s HC – and they are VERY concerned about their future. I think they are (rightly) worried about their ability to schedule FBS schools, and their constraints as service academies vs. what the Power 5 will be offering to their prospects.
With that in mind, I’m thinking our ability to schedule the academies might improve as a result. I also can’t help but wonder, given the changing environment, if the academies might end up FCS at some point in the future. While those might be good things for us, it’s also a bit sad given their history. My dad was USNA, so this hits close to home.
