After hearing about UH's beatdown, I'm kinda glad we stuck with this game though. But having the roof open sucked. I wasn't dressed for the weather.
We were on the Navy side - lots cheering for Navy first downs. People made some noise on Mizzou third downs but none on first and second downs. And of course wild cheering anytime Navy went for it on 4th down. So how about people stop complaining about Texans fans being the worst ever - we are better than most.

I was shocked by the low turnout. Over 69,400 tickets sold - looked like about 25,000 there. At least 40,000 no shows! I don't understand buying a ticket and then not coming, or at least selling it or giving it away.
