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.

Quarterback Keenan Reynolds came into the 2014 season as a dark-horse Heisman Trophy candidate, his reputation built as much on his reliability running the Navy football team's triple-option offense as on his big-play ability. Four games into his junior year, Reynolds has been neither as steady nor as spectacular as he was his first two seasons. Unfortunately for Navy, having a quarterback who is more human than heroic won't work as well as it did those two years, either. While Reynolds largely wasn't to blame for Saturday's 31-24 loss to Rutgers at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium, he was the first to take his share of the responsibility.

Coach Ken Niumatalolo said Navy had to play perfectly in order to have a chance to beat fifth-ranked Ohio State. The Midshipmen put forth a valiant effort against a powerhouse opponent, but one that was far from perfect. Navy was in the game the whole way and even led on two occasions, but costly mistakes spoiled hopes for an upset. An 80-yard scoring strike from quarterback J.T. Barrett to wide receiver Devin Smith and a 61-yard fumble return for touchdown by linebacker Darron Lee were the big plays as Ohio State pulled away for a 34-17 victory over Navy in front of 57,579 fans at M&T Bank Stadium.
