It has been three days since the Black Knights turned the lacrosse world upside down and people are still trying to make sense of Army’s collosal upset over Syracuse. How was this possible? Following the tragedy in Charlottesville, Va., Syracuse, which had been ranked No.1 earlier this year, had to be considered by many as the favorite.

However Teela, a member of the Vermont National Guard and the U.S. Army World Class Athlete Program, had the best-ever finish…

Well, maybe not, but since this is the game that truly matters for these two academies and their teams, I say it’s time for After Action to start hyping this baby up. USAA’s official Army-Navy game site is up and running, and it’s pretty sweet. The site is loaded with facts and information on the teams and the rivalry, including an interactive timeline showing the results and a recap of every single…
