He keeps forwarding me articles that are positive about Navy's move to the Big East. The last article he sent was from The Bird Dog who is a self proclaimed expert on Navy sports. In fact the Bird Dog uses a phrase that I would like to borrow: "the Vanderbilt of the Big East." He doesn't know if that will be Navy's fate. I, however, am confident it will be. We will be the perpetual 3-9 team that everyone looks forward playing on their schedule for the guaranteed W.
"John" keeps sending me texts and e-mails to the point that I think he is trying to convince himself this is a good move. It's almost like a child who asks for a Transformer for Christmas but wakes up on the 25th and finds under the tree that Santa has brought him a Go-Bot. The child keeps telling himself that the Go-Bot is just as good as a Transformer and it will be a great toy. But secretly the child knows that Fitor Jet is not nearly as good as Starscream.
I think "John" and the Bird Dog are trying to swallow a bitter pill and convince themselves that it really doesn't taste that bad. They would like to accept the reality of Navy in the Big East as a positive move. I, however, am not a glass is half full kind of guy and I think it will be DISASTROUS. Navy is not a BCS team. We are a mid-level division one team that
