Navy was selected fifth in the Patriot League preseason poll based on, in part, a 4-9 overall record and a 2-4 mark in the conference last season. The Midshipmen finished out of the top four in the league and failed to qualify for the conference tournament for the first time in school history. Joe Alberici is well aware of those results, but the Army coach said overlooking Navy under the guidance of new coach Rick Sowell would be a mistake. “The demise of Navy is greatly exaggerated,” Alberici said last week.

There were times in recent seasons when Navy's offense would go weeks without making any huge gaffes. The snaps from center Brady DeMell to quarterbacks Ricky Dobbs and Kriss Proctor would be crisp, and thehandoffs from Dobbs and Proctor to fullbacks Vince Murray and Alexander Teich textbook. Even if the Midshipmen did not run the true triple option, particularly with Dobbs, Navy often played mistake-free. The rushing game was ranked in the top six in each of the last four seasons, including No. 1 in 2008.

Ken Niumatalolo recently joked that the more he watches Ohio State on film, “the scarier it gets.” The seventh-year Navy head coach was serious when he said the Buckeyes have the potential to “embarrass us.” Navy opens the season Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium against the Buckeyes, who are considered a national championship contender by most experts. Ohio State went 24-2 in two seasons under head coach Urban Meyer , who has recruited a slew of high school All-Americans since arriving in Columbus three years ago. “This is the toughest opening opponent we've had in my 17 years here,” Niumatalolo said.

When the report of a shooting came in over the radio last September at the Navy Yard in Washington, Master at Arms Charles Pitt initially assumed it was a drill. "These things don't really happen here," said the Annapolis-area resident. Pitt got into a vehicle with his 5-year-old black German shepherd, Olli, and headed to the site of the call, discovering it was all too real. Gunman Aaron Alexis, a computer technician for a private Navy contractor, was on a shooting rampage that left 13 people dead, including himself, and injured three others.

For midshipman Duncan Mamer, the skipper of a Navy 44, the waiting was the hardest part of the 19th biennial Annapolis-Bermuda Race. "The prevailing conditions for this race were mostly just lots and lots of light air," said Mamer, a Caldwell, Iowa, resident and rising senior on the Naval Academy's varsity offshore sailing team. "Whether it was on the Chesapeake [Bay] or half an hour from the finish line, we definitely spent our fair share of time drifting around. "The biggest challenge was definitely just always trying to keep the boat moving.
