GoMids.com Prediction

Well, no BCS bowl game for Navy this season. Life goes on. Now Navy can focus on winning its final four games and that won't be hard to do. This week Navy gets a pitiful Duke team. Talk about a poorly coached team. Duke has had excellent recruiting seasons the past couple years and has absolutely nothing to show for it. Duke coach Ted Roof is a super recruiter, but that about all he's good for! Some good coach (like Paul Johnson) is going to take over at Duke next season and look like a miracle worker. Back to the game: just don't overlook them boys.
