Inches... One More Time

While I was dicking around Google today, I stumbled upon this video. It was made by the Naval Academy's graduating class of 2006. It was intended to inspire the 2006 Navy football team to finally end the long streak of losing to the Irish. Fortunately, for the Irish, Quinn and company were just way too much for the Midshipmen.

You have to wonder though, if the 2007 Navy team remembered this video and used it as a tool to inspire them to a victory in South Bend.

As much as the loss to Navy hurt Irish fans and the team itself, you just can't help but sit back in wonderment at what that Navy team finally accomplished in 2007 after 43 years of heartbreak.

They fought for that inch.

Thanks for posting this. I hope people understand the value of playing Navy every year. They saved the University of Notre Dame from closing during WWII.

Go Navy!
Beat Army!
