Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo trolls College GameDay crew, Kirk Herbstreit for pro-Army remarks
The Army-Navy game is always a special one in the college football world, and it usually is a heck of a matchup, too.
Navy had a 14-year winning streak from 2002 to 2015, but then Army rattled off 3 wins in a row. Last year, Navy picked up a big victory, and now the Midshipmen will try to make it 2 in a row on Saturday at West Point.
When the College GameDay crew interviewed Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo on Saturday morning, he came out firing, trolling analyst Kirk Herbstreit for pro-Army remarks:
“It was good to watch this program because it got my blood boiling,” Niumatalolo said. “I thought this was the Army show, watching you guys. … When Kirk said these have all been close games, I guess he forgot about last year.”
Indeed, Navy won 31-7 last year, and Niumatalolo wants to make sure no one forgets that fact. This rivalry is always an intense one, so it should be fun to watch on Saturday afternoon!
