Pretty cool! Too bad this clever idea, the digital camoflage uniforms and helmets, and the "Duty Honor Country" couldn't overcome a 34 point lead........Maybe next year!

They missed the formation, should have consulted the SWO and PSYOP LNO before attempting leaflet drop. Poor execution, kind of like the Army gameplan for defeating Navy.

I think they intentionally missed said formation, if the box didn't open properly and smushed one of those on the ground, think of the repercussions. I didn't notice any riggers on board the A/C :D.

Good game Navy, there's always next year or the next.............
...when in doubt...over prime.

Navy plays football, Army fights and wins wars. I'm cool with that. :)
I was born my papa's son
When I hit the ground I was on the run
I had one glad hand and the other behind
You can have yours, just give me mine
When the hound dog barkin' in the black of the night
Stick my hand in my pocket, everything's all right

They definitely need to re-evaluate their atmospherics as the wind was blowing the product away from the target audience...unless the plan was to lose 80% of their product in the trees.

In a purely harassment mission that would be fine. The Middies get to look up and see litter for the next several weeks, and every time the wind blows a few more leaflets show up on the quad. Prolonged effects.

Box drop was fine, product deployed, no hang ups.

Riggers? We don't need no stinking riggers. :D

The perceived "over-drop" was an intentional PSYOP distraction and had nothing to do with the actual football game.
