Author William Federer Describes the Peace of Augsburg 1955
"Show and we're talking about how the pilgrims came to be the pilgrims, the book is titled the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it, the prequel to America's freedom of the author, William Federer on the line. Bill, you were talking about really, it's just amazing to me. If you don't mind backtracking a little bit, because there's so many things unfolding at the same time. So let me put the needle back on the record. Right. Well, the idea is that Muslims are invading Europe surrounding Vienna, 1529. The reformation started in 1517 and now we got this internal and external disruption of Europe. The older Roman Emperor, Charles V of Spain, he has the biggest empire on Planet Earth. I mean, the Philippines are named after his son, king Philip of Spain. And he has all the new world. He's taken the gold from the new world to fit on his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean. Anyway, he's faced with his double dilemma, reformation out inside and based on the outside. He actually strikes a deal with the protestants. It's called a piece of Augsburg of 1555. I speak a little German and that's a fun number. It's own 1400 proven folks. 55. That's the first treaty ever to recognize protestants and in this treaty is a little Latin phrase that made a big difference. It's cool ratio to religio, which means whose is The Rain? Is a religion? So in other words, look Protestant king, believe it ever you want in your kingdom. Let's just work together against these Muslims who are invading Europe because they sort of want to kill us all. Well, this started a domino effect in the next century where different kings fully different things. And Sweden and Germany were Lutheran Switzerland Calvin and Scotland Presbyterian England was Anglican Holland Dutch reform. And of course, Italy, Spain, France, Austria, remained

Author William Federer Describes 'The Treacherous World of the 16th Century'
"William Federer has written a book called the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it which its effectively the prequel to America's freedom, William Federer, welcome to the program. Great to be with you. Hey, I mean, the treacherous world of the 16th century and how the pilgrims escaped it. Most of us know so little about the 16th century. We don't think of it as treacherous or non treacherous. What are we talking about here? What is that what is it that got you to write this book? You've written so many books on history. It's a joy to talk to you on any historical subject. But I love it when you come out with a book like this, because you really have done your homework and we get to benefit. What is it that why do you call it the prequel to America's freedom? What did they leave? Well, Europe was ruled by kings and it was being invaded by the sultan of Turkey. The Ottoman sultan Suleiman the Magnificent he was surrounding Vienna. So backdrop, the Muslims conquered all of North Africa, which used to be Christian. There were 250 Catholic diocese along North Africa. Muslims invaded Spain and held it for 700 years and they were just driven out in 1492. So just a couple of years earlier, the Muslims had controlled Egypt for 600 years. It had been founded by the Christian face Mark that wrote the gospel of Matthew Mark Luke and John. And then Siri was completely Christian for 6 centuries of angiotensin by the apostle Paul until Khalid Omar conquers it. And the Turks convert to Islam and they invaded to what is today Turkey and all 7 churches mentioned in the book of revelation are wiped out and then they finally cross the Bosporus and conquer Constantinople in 1453 and then finally they're invading Europe and surrounding Vienna Austria the year 1529. So here we have an Islamic invasion into Europe and just a couple of years earlier the reformation started 1517 with Martin Luther. And so Europe has an inside outside chaos going on and the Holy Roman Emperor is the king of Spain. Charles V now the title Holy Roman Emperor means he's sort of responsible for defending Christendom. And so here he is wanting to defend against the Islamic invasion. At the same time, he is inherited all the new world, right? Columbus discovered it for Ferdinand Isabella. And so he's taking the gold from the new world to fit out his navy to keep the Muslims from taking over the Mediterranean
Gordon Chang Discusses China War Games With US Targets in Secret Desert Site
"With us now is the foremost expert on China. He's terrific. He is the author of the great U.S. China tech war. And it is Gordon Chang and Gordon are you with us now? I am Charlie and thank you so much. You bet you do a wonderful job and talk about our enemy, China, and you have been on the cutting edge of this for quite some time. So let's talk about this breaking news here. China war games with the United States targets in secret desert site. What is going on with the Chinese Communist Party militarily right now? It seems like they're ramping up and I'm not really sure what we're doing domestically militarily. That's a separate issue. So give us the insight, give us the breaking news of what's happening from the Chinese Communist Party militarily. The breaking news is that satellite imagery has seen an aircraft carrier and a destroyer a replica in China's Xinjiang in the northwest part of the country, used for target practice. This has occurred before where China has built replica replicas of U.S. Navy ships. And so to a certain extent, this is ground log day, but the American people are starting to pay attention and that is what is the news. And the broader context, Charlie, is that China's involved in the perhaps the world's fastest military buildup certainly the fastest since the Third Reich, and we know from history that when militant regimes build up their militaries like this, they always use them in acts of aggression. That's definitely true. Do you anticipate China making a move towards Taiwan in the coming months, it sure seems that that's what some of the rumblings and intelligence is showing. It could be coming months. It could be after the Olympics, which start in February of next year, or it could be India could be Japan could be any other country that borders China because we know that China believes that it should be much larger than it is today. And in fact, Chinese leader Xi Jinping has been hinting that he should be ruling the world. Chinese officials since 2018 have been saying that the moon and Mars should be considered sovereign Chinese territory. This is the most ambitious human history.
Duchess of Cornwall 'Can't Stop Talking' About Joe Biden's 'Long, Loud' Fart at COP26
"A lot of people listening right now don't know this, but this is it's been all over the Internet. I love when people say it's been all over the Internet, or the Internet is angry about something. Well, the fact of the matter is that at the G 8 summit or the G 6 summit when they were talking about greenhouse gases and climate change, this is not a joke, folks. This is a sad statement. Our leader Joe Biden, vice President Biden was with Camilla Parker Bowles, the duchess, of Cornwall. The duchess of Cornwall. Now that is, this is the woman that Charles was enamored of during his marriage with Princess Diana. You'll remember this. And then eventually, of course, he married Camilla Parker Bowles, who is now the Dutch as she styled officially as the duchess of Cornwall. Now, if you hear those sirens, I'm in Wichita, Kansas. So I have no idea whether it would be sirens here. It doesn't make any sense. Usually we have science in New York. Anyway, I'm in Wichita. And I want to tell you about where I am and everything. But before I get into all that, I just want to say that there was a royal incident that was reported. It's all over the news this morning. I have put it on Twitter. If you don't follow me on Twitter or on gab or just make sure it's not a tornado siren, right? I don't know what that was happening. I don't know. All I know is I'm in Wichita. They tell me. So it seems that Joe Biden while he was talking to Camilla Parker Bowles, the duchess of Cornwall and the wife of the Prince Charles, he I don't know how to put this. He passed what we would like to call gas, very loudly. And it was a long, low kind of like a boatswain's call. If you've ever been in the navy, actually no, that's high pitched. This was, but it was widely reported. Camilla talked to people about it and it got out. So it's all over the news. And I guess this is what you call breaking news.

"All right, thanks for staying with us, everybody. As usual, we're going to go ahead and wind up this episode with our question of the day and mid wat segments. I had a pretty good response to the question from our last episode. If you recall, it referenced the most recent army navy star matches and I asked everybody the 6 wins over army this year, which one has been your most favorite. So remember we're talking about sprint football men's and women's cross country, men's golf and men's and women's soccer. It looks like the top vote getter was sprint football with 14 and then in second place you had men's soccer with 11 votes. After that, came women's soccer with four votes, and finally, men's cross country was a fourth sport picking up votes with a total of three. Now for the record I ended up going with men's soccer because it was such a convincing win number one. And it was also the first time that maybe had picked up the army navy cup since 2014. But I will tell you that it was a pretty close vote for me between men's soccer and men's golf, just because of the dramatic way that the men's golf team closed out that match with a sudden death. So that brings us to this episode's question of the day, and it's pretty similar to the last one except that it refers to the navy Notre-Dame series. So here it is. Besides 2007, which navy win over the Irish was the most memorable for you and why. And just to refresh your memory, the other three wins that navy picked up over Notre-Dame in the triple option era were in 2009 when they won 23 to 21 in South Bend. And then in 2010, they came through, I believe that that game was up in the metal lens. They won 35 to 17. And then most recently in 2016, and I believe that game was played down in Jacksonville, maybe one 28 to 27. So I'm going to go ahead and put this up on the navy sports nation group Facebook page later today, and I'll pin it to the top so you can find it pretty easily. Now, be sure to post a short comment saying why your pick was the most memorable and I'll read a couple of those on the air as well during the next episode. Okay, time to finish up with our mid watch segment. First, let's go ahead and check in with every stole from the volleyball team. She did have a couple of solid games against bucknell and Lehi, those were navy's last two wins. Against the bison, she registered 5 kills and three service aces. And then she followed that up with 8 more kills to go along with 5 blocks against the mountain hawks. For the season, still ranks first on a team with a 192 kills and she's got 24 service aces, which is good for third behind Jamie llywelyn and kami Herman. And then on the defensive side, the senior from Yorba Linda, California, is also third in blocks with 44 behind Maggie bodmin and Anna klee Meyer. So as we look into these last three games here, they're great opportunities for the team to keep working on any rough edges that they need to smooth out before the tournament starts. And if they can win a couple of those games, they may be able to improve on their tournament seating depending on what happens with the teams in front of them. And then finally for the men we are tracking ashwin Briggs from the men's cross country team. As I mentioned earlier in the podcast, he was the 5th and final navy runner that contributed to the team score to help the mids roll to that patriot league championship. The senior captain covered the 8 K course in 25 minutes and 21 seconds. And just to give you an idea of how good a job the team did finishing as a pack, there are only 15 seconds separating Briggs from the second place finisher Greg mathias. And it also looks like he'll barely have enough time to catch his breath before the indoor track season starts. I just checked out the calendar and the navy invitational is set for December 4th. Bridge is one of the top middle distance runners on the team and he mainly focuses on the 800 meters. In fact, he was the patriot league champion in that event back in 2020 as a sophomore. That's going to do it for this edition of navy sports central. Thank you all so much for joining us. Now, if you like what you've heard, make sure to follow us wherever you get your podcasts, and remember to spread the word to all the other navy fans out there. We have been getting a great response to our question of the day, so if you want to jump in on that, just go to the navy sports nation group Facebook page. And I'll go ahead and pin it to the top so you won't miss it.

Joe Kent: From Army Special Forces to Congressional Candidate
"Joe Kent welcome to America first. Tell us your story first. We were going to discuss your epic decision to serve the nation again this time out of uniform, but tell us a little bit about your life history. What you decided to do at the age of 18 and what you've done in uniform for this nation. Absolutely so pretty much as far back as I can remember, I wanted to serve the country abroad, fighting our nation's wars. I came in just before 9 11. I was really inspired by the rangers in the 1993 Black Hawk down incident. So talking to the army recruiters and you got a ranger contract ready to high school, work my way into ranger regiment. I started my career there. And then my way into special forces. So green berets as most people know them. Actually, it was in special forces selection one 9 11 happens. So God done with the special forces qualifications course, immediately went to 5th special forces group and spent pretty much the next two decades at war. So winter combat 11 times for this country, greatest honor of my life. Retired the 20 year mark because I wanted to be able to stay in the fight operational retired on a Friday and then swore in as a paramilitary operations officer at the CIA on a Monday intended to make that my second career. I felt it was my nation's calling to serve this country overseas fighting war. But my time was cut short tragically because my late wife, Shannon Kent, who was also a special operator, a navy cryptologist and Arabic linguist who had joined the military right after 9 11. She was killed fighting ISIS in Syria in 2019. She was killed about a month after president Trump attempted to fulfill the will of the American people and get us out of our endless war. She was part of the final push to destroy the territory territorial caliphate. Once that happened, Trump attempted to get our troops out as he promised. And that's when the deep state essentially turned against him Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis and a bunch of other unelected bureaucrats, committed bureaucratic slow role, went to the media, their end result was that my wife and the element that she was worth a special operator she was with ended up staying in Syria, a month later her and three other great Americans are tragically killed by suicide bomber and managed Syria. So I decided that that moment that I had to resign from putting myself in physical danger to take care of our two young children, move back here to the Pacific Northwest, had a little bit of an opportunity to meet president Trump and really tell him that his America first foreign policy was actually giving it right. I served under Clinton, I served under Bush served under Obama and we remained in this state of continuous war and without making any gains really just for the benefit of the military industrial complex until president Trump came on the scenes and gave us the authorities and then really the ability to go out and crush the enemy decisively, but not getting any

"The army navy series in 1994. Now, what I like about this is that from the very beginning, lendl was all in. I mean, he wasn't really interested in hiring some young coach to kind of cut their teeth as they got their coaching career going. He went right out and hired a soccer legend. Her name was Karen Guevara. She was an Olympic gold medalist and World Cup team member. And she still leads a program today during the time that she's been on board, navy has enjoyed an 18 to 12 record over army and the head to head competition overall. And by the way, this year's team will be going for their third straight patriot league title. And as I mentioned earlier, they did beat army just this past weekend. That score was three to one and again, just a terrific game overall, a tremendous offensive performance. And the neat thing about coach Kibera. And this is true with several of the other programs. I've mentioned it before. The underclassmen just simply have no fear. I mean, the folks who scored and the game against army this past weekend were two freshmen and a sophomore. Freshman Alexa riddle put in the first goal, but the craziest one was the second one that freshman Amanda graciano put in, it actually came off of a corner kick. And it was a high arcing tri that caught a perfect gust of wind, and it looked like it was heading right towards the front of the goal, but the wind carried it right over the goalie's head and into the top right corner. So that was pretty amazing. And that gave the mids a two zero lead. And by the way, they actually have a name for that kind of gold too. It's called an Olympic gold. That's the name given to a goal scored off of a corner kick unassisted. So pretty cool. I learned something new every day. And then finally, sophomore Katie Herman scored the last goal to give navy a three zero advantage and they held on to win three to one. So congratulations to the women's soccer team in coach Guerra for coming up with another win in the army navy star series. Okay, so after Jack Langley retired in 2001, check glad truck became the athletic director at navy. And the first thing he did was hired Paul Johnson to resurrect the navy football program. He also convinced Cindy Tim tau who is a winner of multiple NCA championships in women's lacrosse at Maryland to come to Annapolis and start up the program at navy. Coach Tim shell is 6 and O versus army and she continues to build a strong championship culture. So I really do think that this team is one that can make a pretty deep run in the NCAA tournament in the next few years. And we'll just have to see how that goes. Remember, they had that great final four run back in 2017 and I just think they're really close to getting back there again. They got some really good talent this year. Now one thing I've spoken about before relating to check glad chuck is that he does have a knack for finding coaches that are really, really good fits for the naval academy. And just to name a couple, Jamie cook with track and field and also Kerry kolot who had mentioned earlier for navy wrestling, they are terrific fits for their respective programs and I think they'll continue to be successful in their head to head matchups against army. Okay, so we've pretty much determined that it was 1968, which was the year Boko arrived at navy as the athletic director. As being the tipping point for navy athletics as it relates to the army navy series. So let's go ahead and take a look at the records for each of these three athletic directors to see what I'm talking about. Under book carpets, the mids over a record in the army navy series was 18 one and one. And then Jack langle took over. And during that stretch, they were 12 and one. And then since glad check has been overseeing the program they've gone 16 three in one. So that brings the overall record in terms of years to 69 to 41 in favor of navy with 13 ties. So remember that in 1973, they were looking at an 11 year gap in terms of wins and losses. And since then, the mids have gone a ridiculous 35 and four, which includes a current 7 year winning streak. So I don't know about you guys, but that pretty much spells total domination to me across all sports. Now the one thing I did want to cover was how the whole idea of the star series got started. And that occurred when both athletic programs began to expand. And as a result of being in the same league, the patriot league, they began to meet more frequently in conference play across different sports. So what they decided to do was create a star series where, in those sports where they might have the potential to meet more than once, they would designate one of those games as the star match. And each team would have the home field advantage and alternating years. So for example, this year, the women's soccer team, for example, played army here at home, and that was a star match. And next year, it'll be up at West Point. So if they happen to meet later on in the patriot league tournament that would still count in the overall head to head competition, but not in the star series. Okay, so now to wrap up this discussion, I'm going to go over some pretty interesting numbers I found when I was doing the research for this piece. So they're going to be a lot of numbers coming at you, but I think they're important to know so you can really get a sense for how strong a grip the mids have on this army navy series. Okay, first of all, the overall record across all sports between army and navy. And you can see this on a navy sports website. It is currently 1120 wins for the mids against 845 losses and 44 ties. And that's right up to the minute, okay? Just so you know that it does include the 6 and one record in the star series this year. Now, the overall record in terms of just annual competition, if we're just counting the number of years that stands at 69 years for navy, 41 for army and there have been 13 ties. In the star series record, if we're just looking specifically at games over the last 25 years, that's also in favor of the mids with 348 wins, a 192 losses, and 11 ties. And if we're looking at the number of years that the star series has been one and lost in the last 25, that favors navy also 23 years against one for army and one tie. Now let's look at the overall winning streak by year and I'm not including ties in this one. Navy owns that one with an 18 year winning streak from 1973 to 1991. And if we focus specifically on these star series winning streak, the mids have that record too as well with 14 straight years between 1997 and 2010. You may recall at the top of the program I mentioned that army and navy go against each other in a total of 24 varsity sports and historically the mids lead in the overall competition in 20 of those 24 sports. And now let's go ahead and take a look at a couple of the teams that have had some really big success against the black knights head to head. And one of them we've already mentioned, that's a wrestling team. So this is the sport with the best winning percentage where the teams have met more than ten times for the men. And as I mentioned before, the wrestling team has a record of 50 ten and 5. And that's good for a winning percentage of a little over 76% for the women. It's the swimming and diving team. They have a record of 36 and four, which basically means they've beaten army 90% of the time. And I'll close this out by leaving you with three more numbers. First, there are 12 teams that have a winning percentage of 60% or better against the black knights and the two longest winning streaks. First for the women, it is the swimming and diving team. That record right now stands at 32 and counting. They've won every matchup against army since 1989. And for the men, it's also the swimming and diving team. That number stands at 30. They've beaten the black knights every year since 1991. So that is everything you'll ever want to know about the head to head competition between army and navy. And I think now you'll know if you didn't know this before. You definitely know it now that there is really no comparison in terms of the quality of these two programs. Now I'm not knocking army at all. To get some great athletes and they work hard over there. But when you look across the board, especially since 1973, navy athletics has made a commitment that they want to beat army in every single sport, not just the big ones. So that is really cool to see. Okay, we are finished with our deep dive, but we just got a couple more things to cover. So hang in there for another few minutes and we'll be right back with our question of the day and our.

"Go ahead and see what's happening with some of the navy teams that have been in action lately. Today we'll focus on the rifle, water polo, and women's rowing teams. And by the way, I will touch on the big wins in mids hat and men's and women's soccer and men's and women's cross country. We'll go ahead and hit those later on in a deep dive in midwife segments. So here we go with the navy rifle team. They came off a series of matches against ranked opponents over the course of the last two weekends. They took on number 11 Akron number 12 Ohio State number 16 Memphis and number four old miss. And during that stretch, they ended up with a two and two record with the winds coming over Ohio State and Memphis. The mids are led by senior captain Mike xanti from Norfolk Virginia. And I will tell you that he's really been in a zone lately because it seems like every time he goes out, he's setting either a new personal record or a new school record. And I'll give you an example of what I'm talking about here. And the match against old miss, which was their most recent one. They did come up short in that one, but the team tied their highest point total of the season. And one of the reasons for that was that zanti scored 599 points out of 600 in the air rifle competition. So yeah, I'd call that some really good shooting. And just to give you an idea of what I mean, I'll reference something that coach Mike auntie said in a conversation with navy sports Phil Bergman a couple weeks ago. The competitors shoot at a target from a distance of ten meters in the air rifle, and from there, that tendering looks like it's about as big as a period at the end of a sentence. So think about that for a second. From ten meters away, that ten ring literally looks like a dot, and xanthan nailed it on 59 out of 60 shots, which to me is just amazing. The guy keeps raising the bar every time it goes out and he's leading a strong team as well. Freshman McKenzie shed and senior Mark amdahl have shot very consistently so far this year. Shed finished third in both the small bore and air rifle against Ohio State and followed that up by placing second in both competitions in the win over Memphis. Andal has shot a season best 5 95 in air rifle and 5 78 in small bore so far this year. Next up for the rifle team is Kentucky on October 30th, but they're really big fall competition is the president's trophy match where they'll be going against air force army and coast guard the following week. So that should be a good one. Before we finish up with the rifle team, I did want to mention that I had an opportunity to interview Mike zanti last year for the navy sports nation blog. I believe it's back in November. And it was a pretty fun conversation. So I'll go ahead and put a link in the show notes so you guys can check it out if you want. Mike is also the son of guy and Kathleen zante. Guy was in the class of 82, and he wrestled at navy, and Kathleen is my classmate from 84, and she went by Kathleen Murray back then. And she's a part of that interview also. So if you want to kind of get a sense of what a parent goes through while supporting a son or daughter who participates in a sport that is certainly not traditional, check out the feature. Like I said, I'll go ahead and leave a link in the show notes and you can see for yourself. All right, now let's move on to water polo. Last month I actually featured the team in the navy sports nation blog and I'll leave a link for that one, too. In case you want to take a look, anyway, the team won a couple of games in a row after completing a West Coast swing that was really, really tough. They played against some of the best programs in the country. Right now they are 8 and ten, but their conference record is three and one. The mids most recently beat Johns Hopkins and bucknell and over the next four weeks they will finish up the remaining conference games before hosting the conference championships at lejeune hall. I think the team is set up to do pretty well. The rest of the way, coach Louie Nicolas really put them through the ring a couple of weeks ago and those games against teams like UCLA, which was ranked third and Santa Clara, which was ranked 9th. They were basically designed to raise the team's level of play. So we'll see how things go starting this week with mount saint Mary's, but I've got a pretty good feeling about where the team is going to go from here. All right, now let's see what's going on with the women's rowing team. I will say that for all three programs that being heavyweight lightweight and women's team, the primary racing season is in the spring. Typically in the fall, they will train for longer distances than the standard 2000 meters that they race in the spring. In fact, they can be two to three times longer. So it provides a great opportunity to lay a solid foundation as they get ready to defend their patriot league championship. And by the way, I did get a chance to see the women practice a little bit when I was in Annapolis a couple weekends ago. I was there at the boathouse primarily to do to put together a feature for the lightweight rowing team, which I hoped to publish in the blog towards the end of this month. So stay tuned for that. But anyway, the team's first race of the fall was the navy day regatta, and it was held this past weekend in Philadelphia. The women entered a total of 9 boats and three different races. The number one varsity boat had a strong showing. They finished second behind pen. And they covered that 4000 meter course in 13 minutes, 48 seconds. The number two varsity boat, the varsity 8 boat finish 5th. And in the varsity fours race the mids finished second and third in between a couple of boats from pen. Now, the race that got my attention was the women's freshman 8 involving navy pen and LaSalle. And the mids absolutely blew the field away winning by 50 seconds. So this outcome really speaks to the depth of the program. So let's think about that for a minute. These athletes have been ruined together for less than two months, and they've already made a statement against a pretty good Ivy League program where pen is concerned. This is why the women's rowing team is so strong urine and you're out. They start putting together winning crews from the day those athletes show up in Annapolis. And whatever that coaching staff is doing is working. I mean, all you got to do to confirm that is to look at their 6 consecutive patriot league championships and to be honest, I don't see anything standing in the way of them picking up another one. All right, that's gonna do it for our sports update. Let's go ahead and take a quick break. And when we return, we'll really dive into this army navy rivalry across all sports. I think you're really gonna like what you're here. So stay with us. Okay, we are back and ready to get into our deep dive segment. Right now the mids are into the second half of their fall sports season and so far, army and navy have faced each other 7 times. The black knights came out on top and volleyball almost a month ago to take initial lead in the star series, but since then, the mids of one every game to take a 6 one lead. And just the last two weeks, navy's defeated army in men's and women's soccer and men's and women's cross country. And right before that, they posted wins and sprint football and men's golf. And all four of those matches the mids were in total control pretty much the entire time. The winning men's soccer was especially great to watch because it was the team's first win since 2014. And if you happen to listen to our last podcast that previewed the game with my guests in classmate Chris McKenna, you'd have heard that his analysis on the team was right on the mark. And that brings me to this point. I'm not sure how many of you are out there track the army navy rivalry outside of football. I'm sure if you've played a particular sport at the academy or if you have a son or daughter who plays it, you probably do look at at least one other one. But what about all the sports? Today I'm actually going to try and break that down for you a little bit more. And by the way, an interest of full disclosure, I did write an article in the navy sports nation blog on this topic this past summer, but I thought discussing the army navy rivalry across all sports would make good content for the podcast also. I'm thinking if nothing else, you can always send a link to your army buddies if they ever start giving you any static just because they want a few football games recently. Anyway, what I'll do is start with the first matchup and then I'll hit some major milestones in a rivalry as we go through the chronological history. So we'll talk about when some of the other major sports were added and where the overall record stood at different points in time. And finally, I'll try to pinpoint the time when things really started to turn in navy's favor, which is basically resulted in them dominating the rivalry across all 24 sports where they currently compete. As we get started, I did want to give a shout out to Justin Kaczynski, who is one of navy's assistant athletic directors for sports information. I reached out to him in the summer when I was researching this feature for the blog. And I was just looking for information going back to maybe 1970. So just a little over 50 years. But Justin went way above and beyond the call and provided me with the results of every army navy competition that's ever taken place back from the very first one. So that was a huge bonus and I just wanted to thank him for that. Okay, I guess the best place to start is at the beginning. The very first army navy competition as most of you probably know is in football. The midge won that game 24 to nothing on November 20th, 1890. And for the first ten years, football was the only sport they played. Navy won three of the first four games. And I guess things got pretty intense after they won in 1893. Apparently some army general really got into it with a navy admiral and it nearly resulted in a two of them squaring off in a duel. So I guess they still actually had those things in the late 19th century. I wasn't sure about that. But anyway, I guess someone managed to calm them down, but the services were ticked off enough at each other that they didn't even play the game for the next 5 years. It started back up again in 1899 and army did win that one. So the first decade of the rivalry ended with the mid holding a three to two advantage. Then in 1901, army, navy started playing each other in baseball, but it was still only a two sport rivalry up until 1920. And that's when things really started to change between 1920, 1940, 11 more sports were added, bringing the total to 13, and they included basketball. Lacrosse gymnastics and outdoor track. Now, as far as the head to head competition goes, the black knights actually held a slight advantage up through 1935. If we were just looking at the number of years each side came out on top, army wanted 17 years compared to 13 for the mids, and there were 9 ties. And that makes sense because there are only two sports played during those really early years. But it was roughly a period of about four decades we'll call it 1935 to 1973 where the black knights really increase their advantage in the overall series. Now, the football teams were relatively even during the 40s and 50s. In fact, navy barely came out on top there going ten 8 and two during that 20 year stretch. But it was in the sports like rifle and pistol where army was winning consistently. And the same was true in squash. But it was in gymnastics where army really kind of dominated the mids because between 1949 and 1969, they only lost one time. So that was largely responsible for giving them the edge going up through 1973. And in fact, by that time, the black knights had a double digit lead. They were ahead 37 to 26 with 12 ties. And I guess by that time, the mid to decided they'd had just about enough. Now, if you had to identify the person who was most responsible for getting this turnaround started, I'd have to go with Bo coppage who became the athletic director at navy in 1968. He was a 46 graduate of the academy and he was actually an active duty captain at the time he took over the role, which was kind of unusual. And while he was a navy, he played football and wrestled on the football team an offensive lineman. But anyway, this was a really, really good hire because when you think about trying to get something like this turned around where you are at a disadvantage in the head to head competition, it makes total sense to hire somebody who knows what it's like to sing second and I'd be willing to bet that coppage knew the score coming in and he had some plans to do something about it. He was the athletic director at navy for 20 years, and during that time, the army navy sports series expanded to 19 head to head competitions. And in the 1980s, 6 women sports were added, starting with basketball in 1980, and the others that followed were swimming, cross country, indoor and outdoor track and also volleyball. We're going to get to the results that copied produced while he was the AD. And when we do, you'll see that he made beating army a priority in all sports, not just football. And of course, all that starts with getting the right head coaches. So cops did three things that pretty much told everybody that he was ready to beat army no matter what the sport was. First, he made sure that wrestling coach Ed Perry didn't go anywhere. Perry had been coaching the mid since 1961. And he was already building a pretty strong legacy. When coppage arrived, Perry was already in the middle of a 5 match winning streak versus army, he was an outstanding coach who had won three NZ titles when he wrestled in college. And it's not unreasonable to assume that with that kind of track record, other colleges were looking to scoop him up. But Perry ended up staying at navy and as it turns out he never lost to the black nights while coppa was the AD. In fact, his record was 22 two and three. And both of those losses and two of the three ties occurred during Perry's first 5 years as a head coach. And after that, his wrestlers just became absolute wrecking machines when it came to taking on army. I mean, they would just crush them. It was routine for them to win by over 20 points. That was pretty much the expectation. In fact, in 1975, navy beat the black knights by a score of 40 to two. So when looking specifically at wrestling in the army navy series, that was one where you could basically pencil the mids in for a win just about every year. They are currently dominating the head to head competition over army with a record of 50 ten and 5, and that includes a win last winter against the black knights up at West Point under new coach Kerry Cola. So right now, the wrestling program is I'm pretty solid ground as it relates to the head to head competition against army. And now we're going to talk about a higher that Bo coppage made that helped get a program turned around in that army navy series. As I mentioned earlier, army usually got the best of the mids in gymnastics. I'd already spoken about that streak where they'd won 19 out of 20 years. And they also won 8 straight times in the 70s and the first part of the 1980s. So then in 1983, coppa hired Pete Corman as the head gymnastics coach. And Corman was actually an Olympian. He competed in the 1976 Montreal Olympics. And I actually remember watching him, he won the bronze medal in the floor exercise and he became the first American gymnast actually to meddle in 44 years. Now, he only coached it navy for 6 years from 1983 to 88, but his record against army was a perfect 6 O. And even more importantly, Corman raised the program to a level that it still maintains today. I went for the black knights in gymnastics is no longer a sure thing like it used to be, you know, looking back at the 1950s through the 1970s. And in fact, the mids have enjoyed quite a bit of success against them the last several years that includes two straight wins in 2019 and 2020 with the meat from last season being canceled due to the pandemic. Now navy gymnastics is one of the more high performing programs on the east coast under coach kip simons. And I think it all started when copied hired back in 1983. Okay, so far, we've talked about one coach that Bo cop had made sure did not leave navy and that being a Ed Perry. And then with Pete Corman, he hired a coach to get essentially one of his programs completely turned around and more competitive with army. And now I'm going to talk about Bo cops bringing on Paul Evans to lead the navy basketball program. Evans came to the naval academy from saint Lawrence, which was a D three school in upstate New York. And one of his strength was developing power forwards and centers into high quality players. And while he was a navy, he produced two of the best in the history of the program, those being Vernon butler and David Robinson. So coach Evans spent 6 years at navy before taking a job at Pitt after the 1986 season and he never lost the army either. His record was a perfect 7 and during those years, the mids were pretty tough to beat no matter who they played. In 1986, they just rolled through their regular season and their conference schedule, making it all the way to the elite 8 in the NCA tournament. And even though they lost to the eventual runner up duke, that navy team continues to be recognized as the best one ever in service academy basketball. So just to recap book coppa is track record. Remember, he came on board in 1968, and it was 1973 when things really started to kind of get turned around. From there until the end of coppa's run as athletic director in 1988, the mid one, the overall head to head competition against army every single year. So that 37 to 26 lead that the black knights had to go along with the 12 ties. That was all gone by the time copied retired. Now the mids lead in the series 41 to 37 with the 12 ties and they were about to build on that in a pretty big way. So we're going to go ahead and take a quick break and talk.
Gunnery Sergeant Jessie Jane Duff on America's First Openly Transgender Four-Star Admiral
"She's none other than gunnery sergeant, UN United States Marine court Jesse Jane Duff, she worked on the Trump campaign co chair of veterans for Trump and also contributed a fellow colleague of mine on newsmax. Gunny, welcome to one on one. Thank you so much. I love your introductions. I get real big headed. Can't get me out of the studio after that. We will always stick to the truth. You are a gummy always a gunny. We've got to talk about what is happening in the last ten months to our services. As you know, the Marine Corps is especially close to my heart. I've worked with all the armed services but I spent two and a half years in Quantico. The latest breaking news item is we find it. I'm sure the Chinese are most impressed. I'm sure Vladimir Putin is quaking in his boots. We have a transgender admiral. Now thank the good lord, it's not in a real armed service. It's not in the coast guard or the navy. It's in the health corps, but put the footage up. This is what's his name Richard Levine, HHS, who has been made a quote unquote admiral in the health corps by the man who sadly bears the title commander in chief and president sleepy creepy Joe Biden. Jesse Jane, this disturbing turn of events, they're not going to keep this just to the health cor are they. Oh, absolutely not. For example, the national defense authorization act right now in Congress got passed. It has to go up to the Senate still. Got passed, though, that taxpayers would pay for transgender surgery. And vote for military members. Military members. So you could join the military. Now, here's something that a lot of people are not aware. The Trump administration did a year study on this under general Mattis, who was very open minded, maybe a little more so than many of us would have liked. For other issues such as women and ground combat, but getting back on this, general Mattis had this studied conducted and they came to find out that transgenders could join the military, but it would be after they've had the hormone treatment, the surgeries. And they were psychologically fit. So they were actually capable of doing the job. And there would be a 5, I believe it would be 5 years within the time that they are surgery. So that you knew that they had fully adjusted. We know that there are record breaking medical concerns among the transgender community for psychological issues, the what is it? What is it called gender dysphoria things to that effect? And I'm no expert on the topic. And I have no issue with the transgender being in the military, but I have a huge issue with the transgender who is using the military to be non

"I think they just kinda ran out of gas because they had trouble getting the ball In the goal so they ended up losing two nil to army which was a little bit disappointing. Considering the great start they'd gotten off to earlier in the year now based on what you've seen so far chris. What are some of the things that the team just absolutely have to get done to bring that star back to annapolis. Yeah i guess you know. I wish i if i had the answer to that i. I probably have coach. Adonis job i can. I think the biggest thing though is is that an and and this probably hasn't changed the biggest thing is that game is different so they always said we have two seasons at navy. You have your your season and then you have the army game. And i remember that very visit vividly. The army game is different. And and the stuff that that worked for you during the season may not work in that game as so i think that The key to that game. At least it was when i played in what i the ones i've seen is the team that makes the fewest mistakes is going to win that game. I think because both both teams are especially this year. Both teams are really good. Both teams have great. Records have won most of their games there scoring a lot of goals They've got really solid defenses. So i think the the key to that game who can stay focused who cannot let the event overcome them and who can make the fewest mistakes. It's an unruly. I was at that at twenty fourteen game. It's it's an there. The the army navy classic or the army navy bowl. I forget what they call it but it's not the ones like it's not like it was when when i played where we we alternate. It went to west point annapolis. It's every year it's in philadelphia. Now it's it's ed. Subaru park had an mls quality stadium and every year. It's it's either. The.

"About how defenders play the game. Yeah i agree with you. It's that specifically that defensive midfielder position is kind of it's hard to use stats to to judge the value of or judge the quality of the play of a defensive midfielder. And i think clearly you is is a great example that because to me he's been one of the most impactful players on this team game in and game out he's that he's that engine in the midfield. That is always hunting the ball when when we don't have it and he wins the ball back and he's if he doesn't win the ball back. He harasses the the guy with the ball to the point where he makes a mistake and You know regains possession for us and then makes that i pass in that first pass is always the most important pass that i has yet the the attack going and it's hard to quantify that it's and and i don't know a way to. I don't know a way to fix that. It's just that coaches are very good at at identifying. That and i can tell you as somebody who appreciates us. When i was playing the players absolutely appreciate it because you know who that guy is. You know who that energy pack is that energize your money and that's to me. That's that's that's what he does for this team right right. Yeah so. I'm thinking especially when we're you know as as they look to the to the army game somebody like him can make all the difference in the world and he's got one year experience under his belt so absolutely. Hopefully that'll that'll be. Something really is a difference maker All right good stuff now. These next two guys. We're gonna talk about together because they've been teammate. Since they were freshman Both seniors now both first team all patriot league. And i'm talking about matinees. Sita and tyler collins. And i remember when i saw a photo of the first time last year. I i thought there's something wrong with the camera because these guys that are about like you know five ten six feet tall and boom also and you see a dude like six eight so first of all. Have you ever played with anybody that taught before. And secondly problems does of defensive pair like this create for the other team. Yeah sure and. I never played against with or against anybody that big. That's it like you say that's unusual for soccer play. It reminds me a lot of joe. Greenspan who played for navy Back when i made that Historic run to the third round of the ncaa and and he actually played professionally in the mls after that but When you when you have a centreback pair like these two guys and and they are impressive. They they they shore up the defense and they own the box in the at least early so i would guess that It's very rare thing for an opponent to score a headed goal against navy. Because these guys just own the box in the air. You're gonna have you're gonna have to beat them with your feet. One thing that impresses me about nishida to and was the same thing. That impressed me about greenspan. When i watched him was for a guy that big his soccer skills are very refined. He's he's got some skills and a lotta times. The big players..

"Okay i tell you what we're gonna go and take a quick break now and when we come back. We'll continue with our look at the navy men's soccer team and our preview of their big match against army. This coming saturday all right. Welcome back to navy sports central. Everyone my name is carl darden and we are joined by my classmate and former navy soccer player chris mckenna as we continue checking out this year's team ahead of this saturday's army navy star match so chris let's go ahead and move onto the midfielders. Our first one is sophomore. David jackson he is from cypress texas and is currently second on the team in points with three goals and three assists for a total of nine points overall so when we compare the forwards and the midfielders. What are some things that midfielder needs to be able to do that. A little bit different from the forward in order to be effective. So i mean just basically amid fielder especially this town Hair that. I think we're about to talk to quilt and jackson They kind of play in tandem with jackson playing more of an attacking midfielder role in Who playing more of a defensive midfielder rolm foot but in both of their cases midfielders have more defensive responsibilities or they have defensive responsibilities at the floor. don't have they have very much. The same skill set when when they're on the ball but when they're not on the ball they've gotta get back behind the ball and chill defensive roles but i really liked the way that these two guys.

What do you see happening over the next few days surely pelosi and in particular joe biden can't live with this kind of an embarrassing defeat when they're going to have to But that's about. I'm hoping right. I want to get ahead of my skis here It doesn't look good for them. It's hard to see a path forward of progressive steam seemed to be sticks in the mud. They don't wanna move good autumn. You know they're taking their lead from bernie. And then what i mean by this is this is complicated right because people have to understand. There's two bills and the negotiation between these two is is linked. But it's really an internal debate amongst democrats so bernie saying. Don't don't vote for the bipartisan infrastructure. Bill unless they attach it to reconciliation which just makes it one giant bill in which case republicans are obviously gonna throw their hands up and i the republicans i mean you would have voted for the infrastructure bill by itself but but not for it.
Americans Find Ways to Remember Fallen Soldiers in Afghanistan
"I wanna talk about yet to great comms. This week one on atom lacks all. We can talk about adams campaign off. And you're right he fuses the party. It's a national race. Nevada is everything. It's the fifty first vote but earlier in the week probably five days ago. Americans have not forgotten that thirteen soldier. What you mean. Of course your headline writer got wrong. It's eleven marines. One navy cormon. One soldier killed in the afghantistan suicide bombing last night. John draws five for fighting concert talked about them. Repeatedly played blood on. My hands also played a couple of songs. All for one really. Americans have not forgotten any of those who've died or been wounded in this war but the national news media has. Yeah absolutely you know what's really is. Founding is immediately when this happened. You started seeing these these These these table settings ray at ad bars as hubs a restaurants where where there would be a a table set for this thirteen Men and women who lost their lives in afghanistan. And then you would see the thirteen years and then you would see in like white tablecloth restaurants thirteen glasses of wine and then went even further and it hasn't stopped. I see it around where i live where people have thirteen chairs in their yard just With with their team flags Setting decided it and And and and people are showing it in all kinds of different ways and it hasn't gone away and i think what the national media is missing and what this administration is missing is. This moment has left an imprint. On the american psyche people have have really Sort of paused and thought about afghanistan and thought about how we left and have not let go of that. And i think the important distinction is is. It's not because they didn't want people to leave what they wanted. Awards show still go on. It's not about that at all. It's about how we left. They argument isn't the disappointment and sadness and and the Sort of imprint. In their brain is about how we left.

Just literally seconds before you came on air literally just broke so we have talked to lawyers and a minister representing several hundred navy seals. The most elite special operators are military trains in fact that caused a half million dollars just to train single seal so these are people put a lot of investment and trust in and they deliver with extraordinary courage and all the operations we know about there being told that if they don't get the vaccine the covert vaccine they will no longer be able to play with their seal team's essentially they will be sidelined and their seal cares will be over. This is very important because some of these sales already had a covert so they believe they have natural. And you don't need the vaccine and others of them have a religious objection to they. Do not believe that there's enough data on the safety to inject it into the body and they're asking for more time they're not anti vaccine because they take lots of vaccines as part of their deployments. They're just concerned about the safety data on this particular vaccine and re pentagon's response according to two lawyers and one of their ministers is that if you don't get it you're not going overseas again well. In van case capacity to deal with terror threats will be drastically diminished. We don't have unlimited supply of seals. John so this.

We Must Own Our Complicity in Afghanistan
"The united states shame right over its precipitous sprint out of afghanistan shadow this country's conscience for generation every horror story and they will keep coming is partly the result of our decision to bug out the death and destruction that occur in previously secure parts of that country will be on the bipartisan decision to exit the fiasco of president biden ordered quick march out of the country with its arbitrary deadline and false proclamations of the heroic airline effort. Airlift effort will garner the most shame but barack obama and donald trump all wanted the same thing they wanted out to all three presidents lacked. What abraham lincoln possessed and george w bush often display the strenght to shoulder. The suffering of war brought home in dead and wounded. Young soldiers sailors airmen and marines the country. Tired of it too. We do not have the ability to fight a long war. Even with minimal casualties be because for us. There is no such thing as a minimal casualty. We can take station troops on board. We peacekeeping missions in kosovo but we cannot endlessly endure the loss of american life to enemy combatants so we left but our greatest centers to have left without first overseeing an exodus of those who were desperate to run from baruch theocracy. We did a portion of the saving at the last minute and those tens of thousands who did escape will be forever grateful for the eleven marines. One navy cormon and one army soldier who gave their lives at those refugees might live but for twenty years. We pretend it all of us at some sort of middle ground might emerge between the darkest midnight and the dawn of democracy. Turns out there wasn't such a middle ground and yet we owed an exit to those who relied on falso.

"Congressman lee zeldin. Welcome back as ed great to be with you so much discuss great to have you open the second hour of the show. First things i. I don't know if this is tough for you to comment on with your reserve status and everything else. But i'm touched by. This is a member of presidential appointee to the pentagon's national security education board. My body sean. Spicer ghana latter yesterday trying to force him to resign from the board of visitors for the annapolis naval academy west point board members of being threatened by the biden. Administration your reaction to what should be totally apolitical. Bipartisan boards helping to run our military's academies. Well first off. It's important to point out that sean has served in our military has warned the uniform. He is a proud navy. Man with experience at tactical operational and strategic levels He brings all the right ingredients and perspectives. And what's ironic about the announcement. Is that jen. Psaki states that their decisions aren't going to be based off of party registration. Well then why are you getting rid of somebody with that kind of experience like sean has pours his heart into it dedicated. You know he's not doing that for prestige or money or title. He's just doing it to give back the other element of this. That i'm greatly concerned about is this Desire to Socially engineer the military. And i signed up for the army. Rotc when i was eighteen years old in nineteen ninety eight watts served on active duty from two thousand three two thousand seven. I've been in the reserve since two thousand seven. Seven is still today wearing my Hat as a member of congress putting aside my hat as a member of the military but wearing my how my has a member of congress. I am very active in ensuring that. Our military is focused on y on accomplishing one image. One mission above all else and that is protecting our nation our national defense protecting our safety our homeland And they just need to be given every last possible tool that they need to do that.

"All right. Thanks for staying with us here on navy sports central. We are in the home stretch. And we're gonna finish things up with our question of the day. Let's start by taking a look at responses to our last question and in our episode a couple of weeks ago covering the navy defensive backs i asked. Which player do you think. We'll wind up with the highest combined number of interceptions and pass breakups and we did have a few fans get back to us on this one of the replies came through the navy sports nation group facebook page so thanks to everyone who took part in that poll. Let's go ahead and check the results. Both mikey mcmorris and mitch. West both received four votes apiece and the fans who went with Mcmorris were kyle kanda. Nathan lightner tim. Snipes and fred peon. Meanwhile lee reinhard. Beatty's smith william barbie and mike krzyzewski think mitch. West is gonna wind up leading that stat. Defensive co captain kevin. Brennan was right behind them with three votes. James neely and then my two classmates paul bar and marks. Gordo who you'll recall was our guest from a couple of weeks ago Went with the navy free safety and by the way James neal had two sons that just graduated from the naval academy this past spring and they played sprint football team. Anyway that's how the voting shook. I think this could be a pretty interesting season. Mcmorris has led the team in pass breakups in the last two years. And i think he could do it again if teams keep throwing in his direction but there is a chance that offensive coordinators will start looking to throw elsewhere and that could open up some opportunities for jamal glenda show at. He can do so. I think you may see him. Put up some good numbers as well as the season goes on. Quarterbacks may not want to go at mcmorris who has quietly earned a reputation as being one of the better defenders in the american conference. Glenn really stood out in spring practice and both he and mcmorris should make a pretty good team at the cornerback position. So that leads to safeties. West is a solid player. Who will usually lined up on the strong side of the field. Brennan properly has view of what's going on in front of him. And if you put that together with his tremendous nose for the ball That's going to be my pick for the guy who will lead the team and combined pass breakups and interceptions this season. He always seems to be where the action is. So there you have it now real quickly. Here's our question of the day for this episode. And it's for all you recreational runners out there. What ranks as your favorite ten k half marathon or marathon. That you've ever run. I'll go ahead and put this question up on the navy. Sports nation group facebook page since.

"Track and field in this industry. Oh i didn't know that initially played basketball. But i didn't know she she did track as well interesting. Okay now last question before we start getting into the rest of the discussion here is when you think about those days. What what value did being an athlete at navy. Hold for you when it came to managing all of their aspects of academy life. Well it was the most important thing for me Being an athlete was extremely valuable. And probably the only reason i was able to take it through at bonded with some rape people again. I mentioned virginia forehand soon. Hone in these were. These were my kind of battle buddies and people that you confided in and talk to in on and off the field if you will so. I don't think if i if i did not have cross country softball and track and field available to me. I'm not sure we end successful at kennedy. Yeah thanks for sharing that perspective. Ginger and i'd actually heard that once before where athletes like yourself found strength through being on a sports team and that helped them manage the other challenges that the academy throughout them. So i appreciate you bringing that up all right so we're gonna go ahead and roll right into our our segment on the cross country team and i know that the last few episodes i've done i've been talking about football and just about everybody is familiar with how navy's been doing on the football field and so forth but cross country is a sport that perhaps only the most chronic sports fan like me might know something a little something about so. I wanted to know if you could just of share with us. Some of the boilerplate stuff for example. You you kind of mentioned the distances before we can touch on before bet the distances run at the collegiate level and the type of courses that you guys typically competed on as well. Can you share that with us. Sure a so cross-country is was typically when we were running now five gay or three point one miles in two thousand eight bumped up the six game or three point seven miles. I'm not sure why lumped up but it did and most cross country courses. That's why it's called cross. Country are in around our wooded areas or offer courses like the navy cross country forces over on the naval station and it runs and lips around the area So again most most of the courses we ran were in that type of setting. Oftentimes that makes it difficult for fans because they can't see you head into the woods then we'd come out the you're in a different order. Kinda wonder what happened as woods. Had my parents ask one question. There like ginger. You are leading when you went into the into the woods. What happened. I said well she just ran fast anyway. the naval academy course. That's one thing. I will point out as a very very tough course. It starts out pretty flat in the beginning. You run across his kind of field area and then you had headed mile one's pretty flat but mile. Two is a little tougher than my offspring. We had what we called big bertha which was a hill that was about forty percent grade. It was very steep maybe quarter mile long but but very difficult and then on the final basically half mile they had call poster or saddle where you're up and down and up and down really one of the heart or she's i think that That we raced which gave a good advantage in in the long run because we were racing and training on on course. That was pretty difficult sue. We went to other horses that were flatter on. We had pretty good success. Okay now let's talk a little bit about that training. I was kinda curious obviously fairly familiar with you know tracker routines and stuff like that but what does a typical cross country practice or workout. Look like so you know we had some. We got three marines. That were our coaches in the beginning. 'cause we didn't we weren't of our ford so they had you know it was. It was major mike shady. He was moraine. It was a captain rocky. Ross occur rain. And and captain steve carpenter and those those guys all ran cross country themselves so they brought a lot to the table stars training workouts. And they believed in you know it was basically a five five day a week you know with with the actual race. They and then a day off but mondays. Mondays were tough because mondays. We normally were on the track running six one mile intervals. And i just can't even explain how difficult those are. Running the mets minute ace and then and then the second day might be all. We're gonna walk for a long run. Maybe seven to ten miles from for long. Run because you're trying to recover from from the monday workout so but we were still a seven thirty eight minute pace when we do those long runs and then and then wednesday might buy typical working on wednesday might be they call them tempo or fart lakes now where you go out. And you ron. Maybe two or three miles hard and the than you ronald slower. Easier than run. Another mile are slower easier And then finally like thursday. You'd you'd go out for again. Another another long run so we would do what we call. We'd run into you know in a group and then the guy the at the end would have thrown up to the front the group and i'm trying to recall what that called but we would do that for for three or four miles. And then the coaches the coaches wanted us to take fridays off Can tell you about that. I got big trouble. Because i was running perimeter on a friday in the coach solomon he. He was pretty upset because meats were always on a saturday saturday morning usually before football leagues and he wanted us to arrest on fridays race on saturdays. Of course should working pretty hard and then sunday's would be anything you wanted to do. You run your own get together go again but that was a typical workout week if you will for for a cross country on all right now let's talk a little bit about scoring okay Obviously get to two or more teams competing. Whether it's a dual meet or an invitation so forth easy enough to determine the the individual winner but could you go into a little bit more detail on how. The teams are scored at cross country meets. Okay we'll cross country whether it's a do homemade or invitatinal you're allowed to have seven runners on the team and then the top five runners Get scored so for instance you finish second in the race navy finishes. Our top runners finished second they get to points. Our next runner finishes fourth Points and so the the top five runners scored and the one team. Lowest points.

"Back on some of your comments earlier this podcast. You were thinking if you played football you would have been a defensive guy Based on my experiences with you around the touch football field down in pensacola. I swore that you would have been a great receiver for what it's worth. Thanks appreciate that. yeah that was. That was a lot of fun those days. It was a great blow off steam for sure going through flight school so absolutely and you know we got the ponds out there and we had some other guys who played d. one at times we had some fun and it was kind of competitive. Yeah for sure. Okay best innovation and college football in the last thirty years you know. Probably the highly potent offenses these days with the spread. And all the passing. That's going on. Is what i would say. Yeah yeah for sure. One thing i've seen in this game and you'll agree as well as things are constantly evolving so the defense is now are kind of starting to figure out ways to create some confusion and Coast newbury scheme is a pretty good example of that so we'll see if that forces the offenses to take another step to evolve a little bit more in the future right mark. That pretty much takes thanks to a close here. I really appreciate your joining me on the podcast I would definitely like to jump in and see if we can do this again. Sometime during the season may be previewing a big game on the schedule or something like that. So if you're up for that maybe we can give that a shot. Yeah that'd be great carl. I appreciate the invite always love talking about navy football all right all right. Thanks a lot man. You take care all right all right everybody. We're in the homestretch.

"You guys some background on varsity sport that i didn't even know existed at the naval academy until i got there Back then it was referred to as lightweight football or one fifties football because the weight limit was one hundred and fifty eight pounds now over the years. That limit is bumped up to one hundred. Seventy eight pounds. That was done back in two thousand seventeen. And by the way kinda rise gradually just didn't go straight from one fifty one seventy eight but it makes sense that they did raise it up because today's athletes just bigger and stronger. And just so you know the average weight of the navy offense and defense based on the most recent depth chart about two hundred and thirty pounds. Anyway the cool thing is that for those guys who loved playing football. There was still a way to do that at the naval academy without having to deal with somebody who's roughly fifty pounds heavier on average and they could do that. Bhai playing what we now know a sprint football. Which brings us to our guest for this episode. He is originally from chicago suburb of melrose park illinois where he played defensive back and wide receiver. He ran track for a couple years in spring as well and he was also recruited by the air force academy before he finally decided to go navy where his brother graduated three years before and while he was at annapolis he played quarterback on the sprint football team and was part of a defense that allowed only six and a half points per game his junior year during his playing career. His teams went fourteen and four including a share. The league championship is sophomore year while registering two big wins over army in both that year and his very next season as a junior. So i'm very happy to welcome former navy. Sprint football defensive back and also a fellow ex hilo pilot mark store to the podcast Mark thanks for being with us now. United exchanged texts emails and facebook posts on navy football for many years..

"We are back here. Maybe sports central and now it's time for our question of the day I take a few minutes to answer questions from our last episode on the defensive line and it was pretty straightforward Basically it was since you've been following navy football who ranks as favourite defensive lineman and what i'd like to do first is go to our guest former navy linebacker anti-piracy -sego so he can talk about one of the two of the guys that he really liked to have playing in front of him. So what do you think Who are a couple of guys out there. That really made your job a whole lot easier. I already mentioned i. I gave away. My my picks already mentioned tim jordan and george tim tim jordan was the captain of the football team in the eighty one season and he was our nose tackle and looking at him. You couldn't tell even play football. I mean but he was just. He wasn't that big but he was just so quick and he dominated the center those two guards and just made made our lives easier inside linebackers because he was just taken up. Those those three guys almost every play on running on a running play and then we just made our our job easier flow into the ball and making the tackle and then My last two years was our classmate. George her long and george. He was good at what he did. But he didn't get a lot of Notoriety because of what he did which was just take up that guard and that tackle. Excuse me that guard and the center and made my job lot easier. So i whenever i see george i always thank him for making me who i was because he. He did a lot of that work. I didn't get any any props for but it made my my life my life a lot easier in both. Tim and george are my two guys. That i think were just made my career right. Yeah i totally agree with you. I mean that's a tough. Ask that that those guard position. Because i mean they just kind of you don't know about him unless the job isn't getting done right. People just gouging for runs of fifteen and twenty yards okay. Something's going on with the nose guard but when they're just getting plugged up. It's only been recently. That i've been hearing and it's usually with with color analysts who are former linemen point this out because i just remember that awesome game that that jackson pitman had against army a couple of years ago. In two thousand nine hundred. I mean the guy just dominated the center in the middle of the field which just let everybody else go bananas. So that's pretty cool now. I'm gonna go back just a little bit further than that One of my favorite guys to watch was guidance. Jabari to wanna who was really class of two thousand twelve so he played With you know on the offensive side. Ricky dobbs and that was that era right right there Basically but he was a four year starter and the thing that really you were talking about..
"navy" Discussed on Navy Sports Central
"Some guys to step up for that were younger. And i was. I was never more nervous coming back for football then my senior year. Because i knew somebody was going to push me and if i didn't get ready i was gonna lose my position so i i worked out so hard and just never. I'll never forget you know. Those guys didn't even know that they were pushing me because they were you know in a different state or wherever but they were pushing me. Because i knew that. If i didn't push myself i wasn't i was somebody's gonna take my position so i was always always think about that and i knew i just needed to work as hard as i could. Because somebody who's gonna push me out. If i if i didn't perform well and i think that's a lot of fans might overlook when it comes to how how it takes just about everybody on the football team to to raise it to that level of success when i think about the last couple of eleven win seasons the mental put on the board in two thousand fifteen and then in two thousand nineteen You know you hear about the guys that are on the field all the time making the plays and so forth but the guys don't hear about are the ones that are pushing them to maintain that level of excellent. So i appreciate you sharing that. And and i think that it's you know you see it in football. You see another sports as well. But i think that it's it's easier to overlook in football just because there's got eleven players on the side just out there going crazy and you're forgetting that they they're out there. They're getting the job done. But chances are there's something right behind them just really kind of you making them work that much harder which is making the team that much better so i appreciate that right. One more position and saving that for our discussion here is going to be on the mike position which features daego ago and also we'll harbor. I'm actually gonna start with harper. I because it's kind of a neat story. This kid was a freshman last year and again they didn't really get a good look at him because of the the pandemic please couldn't even work out with with the team until the season actually started so that was a that was the thing but coming out of spring practices harbor was he actually ended up winning the admiral mac award for the most improved player so and again he's going to be a rising sophomore so that tells me a lot about him as just as as an athlete who can come in early and have that kind of an impact and just his ability to grasp the defense that fast because you know that in coach newbury system everybody's got an important role especially the linebackers..

"Position and the guy who came out of practice spring practices ranked number. One was nicholas straw. He is a six foot. Two two hundred thirty pound junior from lebanon ohio and he did get quite a bit of time on the field. Last year he played nine games and started seven of them. He recorded forty tackles including a career high ten versus army. He also filled in at linebacker for thomas atelli early on when to tell you getting over his knee injury from the previous year and in watching some videos on straw. There's a couple of things that actually one specific thing that jumped out at me and that was he is really quick to the ball Last year he had one sack and had three and a half tackles for loss. And that's the kind of play that coach newbury needs from that raider position. Somebody who can create a little bit of havoc getting into the backfield. So what. I was seeing from him. I actually saw a little bit of high school film on him. His ability to just get off a block and get to. The play is pretty awesome. And i think that the way. He's able to get into the backfield based on what i saw when from senior film and also last year In a couple of clips. That i saw. That's what makes a real acid number one so we've got hit number one and number. Two backing him up is john. Kelly john kelly is a senior and he's six two to thirty two also last year he got into eight games including That big comeback win over two lane so between the two of them Pretty good amount of experience there at that raider position and one thing i picked up. I was listening to a press conference with Coach pj volker. Who's linebackers coach. And you can see it on his face. I mean he is really fired up about getting out there this season because of the group of guys. He's got playing linebacker for him. So that's kind of neat to see. But what i wanted to put. The pons was talking about nick straw. And like i said he's really good at finding the ball and just reacting quickly and and making play on it so you know as a linebacker when you were plan. What are some of the things that you looked at some of the keys. That kind of help you determine where the play was going so you could get there and have an impact primarily my coach..

"And went to virginia. And i didn't think i didn't think he would. I didn't think the new coach would allow me to play baseball coach tranquil. I didn't think he was gonna be allow me to play baseball. And he said well coach. Walsh was going to let you play baseball. He goes. I'll let you play baseball. But you're gonna miss spring football and you're gonna go to the bottom of the depth chart when we come back to the fall so i fortunately i didn't even have to play spring football but i was at the bottom of the depth chart come when i came back in the in the fall and i had to work my way back up into the starting position and i didn't realize that that's pretty impressive right. So the the other thing. I want to get into was just when when you look at and specifically focusing on on sophomore junior senior year when he just started racking up triple. Digits tackles every year Granted in that particular system linebackers get a lot of action but still triple digit tackles three years in a row at that time seemed to be pretty pretty crazy numbers to me. What were some of the things from a skills. Perspective enabled you to be so successful having those kinds of numbers year after year. Well i think initially back then. Football was primarily. Well it was a lot of it was running. I wouldn't say primarily a running game but there was a lot of running so there was there wasn't this rpo and this spread offense and all that stuff that they do. Nowadays a lot of it was running. So i had the opportunity to make plays because they were running the ball. Fortunately for me. I had some really good defensive lineman in front of me Namely tim jordan was was a nose tackle when i was a freshman and sophomore and he just ate up the center and the guards which made me make make it very easy for me to move to the open position and make the tackle george her long. A classmate of ours was the same way he would eat up those whenever they double team the the nose tackle that would allow me to scrape over the top one way or the other and if you could occupy those centers and guards then it made might made my job a lot easier. I think the other thing was just i'd i. It just seemed like i had. I had a feel for the game. Feel for the for the play and Just try just tried to make the play as best i could. We had really good coaching. We had a strong defense. And you know if they if they couldn't throw the ball against us and they'd have to run the ball and that made up made me make some tackles to air force army both were predominantly running offenses. And so i. I remember making like the twenty two tackles against air force but they ran the ball eighty percent of the time anyway. That's probably the biggest thing is just the deal. I d line in front of me and then just the fact that the a lot of the times. The offense is just ran the ball against us right right now. I know we talked that you hadn't had a chance to watch a ton of games..
