Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo said he has been receiving condolence letters and messages, even from close friends. It’s not surprising considering the Midshipmen are 0-3 and struggling on a lot of levels.
However, Niumatalolo is in no mood to wallow in disappointment and certainly isn’t giving up on this season as the Mids still have nine more games.
Navy is in the midst of a brutal stretch of games against programs picked to finish first through fifth in the American Athletic Conference. Up next is Central Florida, which was predicted to be runner-up to defending conference champion Cincinnati in the media preseason poll.
