Why Navy deserves to be in the Top 25


There’s a very credible argument for Navy’s inclusion in the final Associated Press and USA Today/ESPN Coaches’ Top 25 polls on the (Annapolis) Capital’s Navy Sports blog.

Here’s a taste of why Navy belongs:

* Won 10 games for just the third time in school history.  The 10 wins are tied for the 12th most wins in the country.

* Two of Navy’s four losses were to teams that will most likely finish in the Top 10 (Ohio State and Pittsburgh).  Another loss came against bowl-bound Temple when Navy played without star quarterback Ricky Dobbs.

* Defeated three bowl teams (Air Force, SMU and Missouri).  Air Force and SMU won their bowl games, while Navy blew out Missouri, 35-13, in the Texas Bowl.
