College football is sometimes perfect:
Army took Oklahoma to overtime last night, ultimately losing 28-21. Even though they lost, this game was just another example of why Army is the coolest thing in college football. A squad of 100 players just a few years away from all serving our country went into Oklahoma, a team full of future NFL players, and scared the living daylights out of them.
Here was coach Jeff Monken earlier in the week talking about the importance of winning at Army:
Since Monken came to West Point, he has taken Army to two straight victories over Navy, who they hadn’t beaten since 2002 prior to 2016. The last time Army beat Navy in back-to-back years was 1996. When Monken took over in 2014, Army was 40-126 since 2000. Since then, Army is 24-22 with 2 bowl victories (had won one since 1985 prior to Monken). He’s not Nick Saban, but Monken is one of the best coaches in college football.
I love college football. I love America.
