PHILADELPHIA — Well, maybe the cadets brought their own version of Bill’s head to cause a disturbance — a classic diversionary tactic — because I can see the real Bill the Goat on the field along with Navy’s cheerleaders and a line of midshipmen. And, as I’ve been typing this, Navy won the game’s opening coin toss and elected to receive the ball when the action gets started in just a few minutes.
Not only that, a flight of four Marine Corps MV-22 Ospreys just flew over — and the Midshipmen have taken the field — and now the Black Knights, behind an enormous “West Point” flag. All right! Time for some footbaw!
