Intimidating football sayings
LSU takes its Baton Rouge heritage to the extreme here. #Brick By Brick (Tennessee) — A lot of us laughed at the philosophy initiated by Butch Jones when he arrived in Knoxville, but at this point, the mindset’s working for the Vols — certainly from a recruiting perspective.
If Tennessee wins the East this season, #Brick By Brick becomes his legacy.
And it was in 2011 that Rutgers last played both teams in the same year; Rutgers won both during a 9-4 season, Greg Schiano’s last as coach of the Knights. As of right now, there are no future games scheduled between Rutgers and either academy. In fact, they have the sites chosen through 2022, including a Dec. Navy leads the series 60-50-7, with the first Army-Navy football game played on Nov. Navy started playing football in 1879 and defeated the newly established Army team, 24-0.

They are the service academies and, at this time, the only two (The Air Force Academy was established in 1954 but wouldn’t graduate its first class until 1959... And, as you might expect, patriotism and patriotic themes abounded. The game had been played continuously since 1930, and not even World War II could stop it.
Only six Army-Navy games were played on the campus of either academy, two of those during World War II in 19.
The Cadets won, 27-6 while the Middies earned a 20-12 victory.Since then, though, Rutgers has a 22-18 edge over Army and a slim 13-11-1 margin over Navy.The last time RU met the Cadets was at Michie Stadium at West Point, winning 31-21 on Sept. Rutgers won its last game against Navy in 2014, a 31-24 win at Annapolis.C., but it’s not exactly inviting — or intimidating — from a social or shareable standpoint.Since the Gamecocks are still gunning for their first SEC Championship, I prefer #Why Not Us as a South Carolina native.
