By Ken Fang. It was a day we knew was coming, but it was still emotional to watch.

Army mule ‘takes care of its business’ in the end zone, causing a delay in play

Well, this is a new one. The start of the second quarter of Saturday’s Rice-Army game was delayed when one of the Army mules left its err… mark… in one of the end zones. In most cases, having a live mascot is an obvious upgrade to the foam and polyester alternative. However, they are not without their downsides, as today’s incident shows us. There is a tendency to make...

2015 College Football Picks: The Army-Navy Edition

The game hasn’t been for national championship placement or even conference titles in close to a half-century (only twice since 1963 have both teams had a winning record coming into this game), but none of that matters. From the moments where the...
