As far as anyone knows the Duke game is going ahead so it looks like it is preview time. The Mids…
Navy Preparing to Play on Saturday
Navy athletic director Chet Gladchuck certainly cannot be accused of sitting idly by and waiting for a decision. He, along with other Naval Academy officials, spent much of the early part of this week providing more information to the Defense Department to prove that the football team does not use government money to play the game.
"Today (Monday) I know that the Department of Defense is again reviewing additional information as it pertains to expenses and travel and no government spending. Hopefully we're gaining even more confidence in the fact we are financially independent." Gladchuck said to the Associated Press.
The staff are hopeful that as last week's game was able to go ahead because no government funds were used then this should be the same situation. The complicating factor is that the Duke game is on the road, but if it can be proved that travel will happen on the Academy's dime then it should hopefully be okay.
If the game does go ahead then Navy will be facing a team with a winning record who are coming off of a bye week. The Blue Devils took part in probably the most ridiculous game of the season when they dropped a three point decision to Pittsburgh 58-55. With wins over Memphis, North Carolina Central, and Troy, the Duke schedule clearly hasn't been a murderers row. Any time you are above .500 however you must be doing something right.
The Mids are looking to move to 4-1 for the first time since 2006. With any luck, and with the right decision by the powers that be, they will get the chance to do just that.
