The Service Academy's call it an appointment - because the President granted your appointment and upon graduation your commission- but the same circumstance at LSU, Bama, anywheres really(except USL, this only applies to actual university's) and it's a full scholarship. I can see how Carson or an un...

No serious analysis just wins and losses. This year I'll probably keep up with Mike Riley at Nebraska a...View Topic - Replies (3)
