I'm writing in response to the Navy-Mizzou band mix-up. Is it tradition that the Tigers rush off the field as their band is playing the fight song and alma mater after a loss? Most teams stick around long enough to carry out the tradition, or they might otherwise be accused of disrespecting their own school. Heck, I bet Mizzou didn't have 200 fans in the stands by the end of their ritual.
I find it amazing that Mizzou hasn't been around long enough to know that Navy always does the B&G after every game. But maybe so. In the end, it was a great game and the Mizzou fans were great folks.
Roy Beaty lives in Houston. His son, Austin Beaty, plays for Navy and is good friends with Will Ebner, a linebacker for Missouri.
