    Tomorrow, Army vs. Navy will officially be the last game of the regular season in the FBS.

    I know it's a tradition but it still feels weird that they put this game after all the college bowl games and playoff matchups were announced.

    Like what if both teams are undefeated and are playing for a spot in the CFP. I think they should move the game with either on Thanksgiving weekend or the conference championship Saturday.

    Neither one of these teams will sniff the playoffs in peacetime. Elite college athletes aren't gonna volunteer years of military service. On top of that they have size limits, their players can only be so big.

    Just enjoy the game for what it is. It's as close to pure football as you will see at this level.

    Cool for him first time I haven't watched the ceremony in a long time... seemed like the Heisman race was kinda dull this year with all the talk surrounding the playoff.

    That last tweet from Dennis Dodd floors me, not because of the percentages being historically high, but because five percent of the voters didn't even put him on their ballots.
