Challenges for Navy

Navy is stuck in a miserable four-game losing streak. No relief is in sight as next the Mids must battle a very strong Notre Dame team. Last year Navy gave the Irish all it could handle in South Bend. There’s no reason the Mids can’t repeat that feat in sunny San Diego. Notre Dame is a team subject to sleep walking through games. Look at their close wins over Pitt and Vandy. If their option game is working the Mids have a chance.

Saturday’s game kicks off at 8 pm ET and can be seen on CBS.


  1. These days I’m looking for a suitable online comment service. I’ve tried out many services like Disqus & just-comments. But both of theme has their own problems & I can’t feel comfortable with them!
    I’ve made a blog on GitHub pages with Jekyll, so I need an online comment service for my static website. Can you tell me what you use? or do you know any other free online comment service?

  2. thank you, but the Muut is premium tools and I think that’s not suitable for a free technichal blog.and about riotjs, I couldn’t find any comment system init, it is just a UI component tool.
    Aaah, look like they have stopped the free plan, although existing account not affected. And no, riotjs is not commenting system. I just want to mention the history.

  3. There are not a lot of them that I have found I like as a user. Basically, they need to allow the user to authenticate with their service via 3rd party accounts (Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.). With no further requirements. The comment service should be nearly invisible to the user. It is just a means to an end — to get comments on your post.
    I used to participate in Disqus comments, but now I don’t like it and will generally not leave a comment before I use it. Because they switched to prompting the me to fill in Disqus account information before allowing me to comment.

  4. I don’t want or care about managing a Disqus account… I only want to leave comments. And Disqus also doesn’t work well if you turn off 3rd party cookies, which I disable in every browser I use.
    I think it depends on who you want to use it. For example, I installed Facebook comments on my company website solely so people could leave comments using a service they were probably already logged into. For a coding blog I would never use Facebook, but I would look around for a service that used Github Oauth. Basically, I think if someone needs to sign up to leave a comment, you will never get any comments.

  5. It’s good to keep some things in mind when selecting what comment system you want to use. Do you want integration with social media, for example? Do you want to be able to keep your comments if you ever need to change your comment system,
    and what features do you need? You may want more functionalities than WordPress’ standard comment system provides and therefore choose another system. But are there really no downsides to that, keeping the importance of site speed in mind? What about comment systems and SEO? Let’s get into this dilemma in this week’s Ask Yoast!
