Navy Coach Ken Niumatalolo Wouldn't Mind Too Much If Game Vs. Air Force Disappeared Down The Road

The Navy Midshipmen are moving to the Big East in 2015 as a football-only member, but for now the academy plans to keep scheduling the Army Black Knights and the Air Force Falcons once that move happens. However, Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo thinks that the school will eventually need to cut one of the three main rivalry games the school has: Army, Air Force or Notre Dame. As Niumatalolo recently told ESPN:

"If we have to give one of them away, it's not the conference championship. I'd say the Commander-in-Chief's trophy wouldn't be as important. I know I'll be getting a ton of email and phone calls on this. But I think it would be in the best interest of our program to keep those two games against Army and Notre Dame."

OK, so the Big East is the Big East, which means the Midshipmen could conceivably be competing every year. Although, 2015 is still a few years away and we could see, I don't know, Boise State become the predominant team. Second, well, Niumatalolo could conceivably be gone before it even comes up for discussion to drop one of those three games.

Maybe there's service envy involved here.
