"Somewhere in the world of college football, there might be a more beautiful place where young men can pull on their uniform and play an autumn game, but right now, it is impossible to imagine such a thing."

- John Lopez, Houston Chronicle

Over 4,000 Cadets in attendance provides one of the best atmospheres in College Football

"There is nothing like being at Michie Stadium on the banks of the Hudson River with the leaves changing during the third weekend in October. The scenery is incredible. And how about the inspiration drawn from being at such a historic landmark? You see the statues of MacArthur, Patton and Eisenhower. Then on game day morning, you have the pleasure of witnessing the Cadet Parade. And how about when the cadets sing 'On Brave Old Army Team?' That is an unbelievable moment." - Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN
