One of the most respected games in all of college football is the Army-Navy game, yet it isn’t overly publicized or covered outside of the game itself. Ironically, that also means Air Force is largely left unnoticed when it come to the 3-way battle for the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, which the Falcons have won 20 times to Navy’s 15 and Army’s eight.

SB Nation saw the gap in coverage and in late 2018 started Against All Enemies, a new take on SB Nation’s individual team coverage format which instead focuses entirely on the Division I military academies and all the sports they participate in. Thursday saw the next step for the brand as the Against All Enemies Podcast debuted.

“This was something I felt very strongly about,” said Justin Mears said about the entire Against All Enemies project in an announcement for the podcast. “I had pushed SB Nation for a couple of years that they should consider adding a site dedicated to service academy athletics, because I knew that this was a chance to shed some light on three schools (and other military interest stories) that compete in Division One athletics but don’t always get to share the spotlight in the media with the blue bloods of college athletics.”

Mears, a Navy graduate, will serve as the host of the weekly roundtable of Scott Lopez, Kaylah Jackson and Austin Lanteigne. Each member of the show has ties to a military academy. Lopez is an Air Force graduate, Jackson is enlisted in the Army (the only enlisted contributor on the site) while Lantiegne graduated from the Naval Academy in 2009.

“I think we have a good mix of personalities and coverage for each of the three schools,” Mears added. “The beauty of discussing three rivals on the same podcast each and every week is that there will no doubt be some contention and disagreement as to who is the best service academy (that’s easy, it’s Navy) and what the landscape looks like for service academy athletics.”

With Masters Week in full swing, Billy Hurley III is the first guest on the show. Hurley is a 2004 Naval Academy graduate and stands as the only military veteran on the PGA Tour.

Julian Edelman Considers Himself A Pioneer

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that.”

Since his playing days with the New England Patriots ended after the 2020 season, Julian Edelman has kept himself busy with his role on Inside the NFL and now co-hosting the Games with Names podcast with comedian Sam Morril. So, what was Edelman looking for with his post-football endeavors?

Edelman was a guest on the most-recent episode of the Half-Forgotten History podcast with Trey Wingo and he said that the vibe that Inside The NFL has with Phil Simms, James Brown, Brandon Marshall, Michael Irvin, and Ray Lewis was something that he was looking for.

“With Inside the NFL, I have those guys and there’s a camaraderie. We get to have that breaking bread and just locker room kind of vibe. On the podcast, it’s the same thing.”

The MVP of Super Bowl XLIII mentioned that the key to doing the things he does now in his post-career came from the way him and his team were able to use social media to build his own brand and help ease the transition from a playing career to a member of the media.

“When I retired, I was fortunate enough to put a good team around me for all of my off-the-field things. We built a brand through social media. Kind of pioneers of this whole thing with social and e-commerce and millennial/Gen-Z things. It helped me land a role on Inside the NFL and go and have an ability to start a podcast, Games With Names. It’s been good and it honestly helps with the transition.”

Now that Edelman’s playing days are in the past, he said that he now has the opportunity to do things that he was always interested in since he was a kid, but did not have the time for and he is grateful for the opportunities that the NFL has allowed him to have.

“I’ve been a football player since I was 8 years old, but I did have other interests. Now that I am done, I get to explore that. I am so grateful for football and for the game just because it has given me the opportunity to do things that are fun and amazing.”
