"I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction: 'I served in the United States Navy.'" - President John F. Kennedy

First Bye Week Of Season Gives New OC Time To Adjust

After last weeks sudden change in offensive coordinators, all eyes have been on Navy's practices during the week to see what type of changes, if any, would come from the new addition of Vernon.

"Of course we're practicing some new stuff," said Vernon. "They wouldn't have brought me in here if they didn't want to change up their offensive scheme some but that in no way means we're going to deviate away from what has been Navy football ever since it's inception. That would just simply go against everything that is Navy football tradition."

Very little has leaked from the closed practices that Navy has started holding since the addition of the new offensive coordinator.

"We didn't want any distractions coming in from the media to interfere with our practices for this week so we decided to close them off to the public," said head coach Niumatalolo.

"We have decided instead of allowing that, we'd be better off if we practiced in an enclosed area without outside interference. Instead of the normal media stuff, we've decided it's best for us to hold weekly press conferences where the public has a forum that allows them to ask questions about our progress and that we go from there. Look for our next one come Monday morning after we get back from Louisiana."
