There was something very different about this Saturday am…

Wow, cannot believe it!  No College GameDay!  No jam packed slate of exciting college football games (not counting Army vs. Navy which will discuss later).  This is a little sad.  The “regular season” portion of college football has basically come to an end.  Now we await the many bowl games we can enjoy throughout the holidays.  Still, it seems like a vacuum!!  Hard to fathom that it will be six weeks before we actually see Alabama and Notre Dame play for the BCS Championship.  NFL is still in full swing, NBA is going strong, and College Basketball is getting revved up.  Still, something is missing today!!

Speaking of Army vs. Navy, 2:30 pm EST today, this is one of the greatest rivalries in all of sport.  It is also so much more than sport.  These young men have places to go and things to do when this game is over.  It is on a different level all together.  Still, for this afternoon, for these young men, this game is about football and winning.  Always a privilege to watch this game!

Tonight, 8:00 pm EST on ESPN, The Heisman Trophy winner will be announced.  I think it will be Johnny Manziel, but it could be Collin Klein, or Manti Te’o.  What do you think?  Stay tuned…
