We know it's not the SEC, but his shade was totally gratuitous and unjustified. Navy was a ranked team this year and both squads probably have some NFL level, or nearly so, players. He has no business denigrating players who not only play at a level he could never attain, but who also do so while electing the rigors of an academy life instead of a cushier football centric school, rather than, like he did, avoiding service through a patently bogus excuse (not unusual for his generation, but nevertheless weaselly and giving him no basis to judge).

Without going into detail, I have some knowledge of how he treated his kids with the same conditional approval. As said by others above, it's what he is.

Though unlike NAPS, Choate doesn't pay its players $1000 a month stipend.
