The Dec. 10 Army-Navy game is approaching, which means it’s Spirit Spot time. Here’s the newest ones from the sea service. Let us know in the comments which ones you like the best.

With a 27-24 road loss to San Jose State this past Saturday, Navy (4-7) will miss a bowl for the first time since 2002, former coach Paul Johnson’s first year at the Academy. The Mids will close out the 2011 season at the traditional Army-Navy game on Dec. 10 at Fedex Field in Landover, Md. While this news is disheartening for Midshipman fans, it’s also a blow for the Military Bowl. As shown in the top image above, the organizers originally had Navy playing an ACC opponent. Now the website has nothing at the top of the page about who will be…

Senior fullback Alexander Teich is one of the most potent weapons the Naval Academy has on offense. Unfortunately, they’ll be without him for their upcoming game against Southern Mississippi.

Here’s a quote from Niumatalolo on the situation, via The Capital:    “I’m not sure what the situation is with Alex right now. Just from the standpoint, he’s not here at practice,” Niumatalolo said. “There’s some things that Alex needs to take care of. To…

If you haven’t been following all the invites from the Marine Corps, it’s becoming a bit of a trend to ask out a celebrity on YouTube. Now the Army is getting into it. Meet U.S. Army Capt. Nassar Jabour. He would like U.S. Women’s National Team goalie Hope Solo to join him in Vienna, Austria for his officer’s ball in January. The video itself is a bit out-dated because it was filmed before the U.S. lost to Japan on Sunday, but he wishes the team luck before the biggest game of their careers. No word on whether Solo has accepted…
