Former Navy star running back Kyle Eckel is practicing with the Miami Dolphins after having been involuntarily terminated from the service. Eckel received an administrative separation from the Navy on Oct. 31, a Navy spokesman confirmed yesterday. In addition, he'll be required to repay about $96,000 in education costs, said Lt. Tommy Crosby of the Navy Office of Information. "Whenever someone does not fulfill their follow-on service commitment, they must repay their educational expenses on a pro-rated basis," Crosby said.

When the respectful rite of standing for each other's alma mater had ended in the chill of an early evening in Philadelphia, Navy and Army went their separate ways again, the former riding high, the latter still trying to climb to an equal level. The great divide in their football fortunes still intact after Navy's 42-13 romp Saturday, the Midshipmen returned to Annapolis for a break from the field, then pre-Christmas preparations for their Emerald Bowl date against New Mexico. Army returned to West Point still lagging in the race for the Commander in Chief's Trophy that Navy has captured the past two years.

There seemed to be a common theme that came out of the Navy spring football game yesterday at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium: The Midshipmen have some work to do before the season begins Sept. 3 against Maryland. Navy lost 36 seniors from last year's team that went 10-2, won the Emerald Bowl and gave the school its best season in 99 years. That's why the Midshipmen will need many underclassmen to step up and fill holes. But there were plenty of struggles in yesterday's spring game, with the Blue team pulling out a 9-7 win over the White team.

TULSA, Okla. - Kyle Eckel's power and Aaron Polanco's finesse, not to mention Navy's defense, were too much for Tulsa last night. Eckel and Polanco put in workmanlike performances, and the defense posted its first shutout since 1994, as the Midshipmen rolled to a 29-0 victory. Navy improved to 3-0 for the first time since 1979. Tulsa, a surprising 8-5 a year ago, dropped to 0-3 with its third straight poor offensive showing. The Golden Hurricane gained 320 yards and were shut out for the first time since a 37-0 loss to Oklahoma opening the 2002 season.

As bad as it's been the past three seasons for Navy's football program, things somehow managed to get a little bit worse for the Midshipmen yesterday. Connecticut, just three years removed from playing Division I-AA, so thoroughly whipped Navy on its own home field, first-year coach Paul Johnson was nearly speechless afterward. The Huskies scored on five of their first six possessions and held Navy to just 82 total yards, cruising to a 38-0 victory. Navy (1-9), which has lost 14 straight home games, didn't get a first down in the second half and had only 35 rushing yards, the Mids' lowest total on the ground since 1994.

Navy (1-3) at Air Force (4-0) Site: Falcon Stadium, Colorado Springs, Colo. Time: 3:05 p.m. Radio: WJFK (1300 AM), WNAV (1430 AM) Line: Air Force by 23 Series: Air Force leads 24-10 Last meeting: Air Force won, 24-18, last year at FedEx Field in Landover. Last game: Duke defeated Navy, 43-17; Air Force defeated Utah, 30-26. Navy offense vs. Air Force defense: It's the same story each week for Navy. The Mids move the ball but can't hold on to it. Fullback Kyle Eckel and slot back Eric Roberts need to create big plays and cut down on turnovers for Navy to have a chance.

Navy senior fullback Matt Hall was just glad to be out there again, involved in the Midshipmen's offense. Hall was not happy his increased playing time came at the expense of starter Adam Ballard, the junior who left Saturday's 41-17 rout at Connecticut early in the second half with numbness in his hand, caused by a stinger. But Hall, who gained 38 yards on a season-high eight carries against the Huskies, has been on both sides of unexpected opportunities. As the heir apparent to Kyle Eckel in 2005, Hall was coming into his own, before suffering a season-ending knee injury against Notre Dame.
