Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein got a share of a record Friday night, but he didn’t get what he really wanted– a victory. Klein scored his 27th rushing touchdown of the season for the 11th-ranked Wildcats, who fell 29-16 to No. 7 Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl at Cowboys Stadium, outside Dallas. That touchdown tied him with former Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs, who set the mark for most touchdowns by a quarterback in the Football Bowl Subdivision two years ago. Klein didn’t want the focus on his record. “It’s overshadowed by our ability as a group. We came up short,”…

The brilliant careers of Ricky Dobbs and the rest of the Navy seniors ended with a 35-14 loss to San Diego State on Thursday night in the Poinsettia Bowl. The Aztecs offense had too much firepower for Navy’s defense, finishing with 555 total yards. Freshman running back Ronnie Hillman led San Diego State’s attack, rushing for 228 yards and three touchdowns. Hillman also caught a touchdown at the beginning of the fourth quarter, which was effectively the back-breaker for Navy. Aztec junior quarterback Ryan Lindley threw for 276 yards and two touchdowns. For Navy, Dobbs has a typically strong game…

Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs refuses to allow Army to fall out of this game. With Navy driving in Army territory to put the final stake in the Black Knights’ heart, Dobbs committed his fourth turnover of the game by throwing an interception to Army safety Richard King in the endzone. Army started off the second half strong, marching down the field before the drive stalled and settling for a 42-yard field goal. Army should consider having the kicker to double duty because their punter has been abysmal all game. Army quarterback Trent Steelman didn’t look injured in the third quarter…

This year After Action brought in a special guest, retired Lt. Col. Robert Hoffman, who also played defensive end at Bloomsburg University. This year he will be blogging and providing his insight on the game. We asked him first for a prediction. After walking the field before kick-off and sensing the energy coming from Army’s side of the field I am predicting Army ends their eight game losing streak and winning 17-14. The key for Army will be containing Navy senior quarterback Ricky Dobbs. The cadets also need to contain wide receiver Greg Jones who is Dobbs favorite target. All…

Annapolis Capital sports scribe Bill Wagner is profiling many of Navy’s seniors in the lead up to this Saturday’s Army-Navy game. He profiled do-everything-quarterback Ricky Dobbs, who will be included on a short list of Navy’s greatest all-time players. What’s most interesting in Wagner’s piece, though, is how close Navy came to losing the “Magic Man.” You can read the whole article here, but these are some of the highlights: • Dobbs didn’t start at quarterback when he enrolled at the Naval Academy Prep School. Coaches played him at first at fullback, and Dobbs wasn’t happy. Navy was the only…

Ricky Dobbs’ final home game for Navy was a memorable one. The senior quarterback passed for a touchdown and ran for three more while rolling up 318 total yards, a career high, and led Navy to a 35-19 victory over Arkansas State at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium. Dobbs is part of a historic senior class that was recognized prior to the game. The 23 Navy seniors have won 33 games overall, including two memorable wins against Notre Dame. The seniors won three Commander-in-Chief’s Trophies, never lost to Army and appeared in four consecutive bowl games. “These guys have done a lot,”…

Alexander Teich had the game of his life against Notre Dame, rushing for a career-high 210 yards and scoring on a well-executed 31-yard screen pass that helped set the tone for Navy’s 35-17 win against the Fighting Irish. Teich started this season as the backup fullback to Vince Murray, who took Teich’s starting job last year after he got hurt. When Murray went down with a knee injury in the Wake Forest game Oct. 9, the 217-pound Teich stepped in, and he’s made the most of his opportunity. Teich has had four touchdowns in the last three games (two rushing,…
