Looking back on the predictions leading into Navy’s 41-3 defeat of VMI …
1. Trey Miller will not commit a turnover.
INCORRECT. Miller added two more lost fumbles, giving him six in three games. In a rather sobering comparison, Navy lost nine fumbles all of last season. Coach Ken Niumatalolo nearly yanked the junior after the two early turnovers, but Miller recovered to run for three touchdowns. Still, Miller’s ball security problems is a jarring issue Navy must address going forward.
2. Gee Gee Greene will score a touchdown.
INCORRECT. The senior was efficient – he had 79 yards rushing on eight carries and also hauled in a pair of receptions for 46 yards – but did not score his second touchdown of the season.
3. Jonathan Wev will start at cornerback.
CORRECT. Wev made his second start but left with an injury. He made one tackle against the Keydets.
4. A Navy defensive lineman will have a sack.
INCORRECT. Not one of their own, anyway. Wes Henderson and Evan Palelei combined for a sack, but the only full sacks of the day went to linebackers Keegan Wetzel and Jordan Drake. Through three games, no Navy defensive lineman has more than half of a sack.
5. Navy will win.
CORRECT. It took until the fourth quarter for the Mids to blow it open – it was 13-3 until the 2:13 mark of the third quarter – but Navy did collect its first victory of the season.
