121 of Navy's 242 yards came with Dobbs under center. 5 of Navy's 9 earned first downs (and 1 of the 2 on penalty) came with Dobbs under center. Dobbs came in with 4 minutes left in the 3rd quarter.

It took 3 series for him to find the groove against Notre Dame. I think it took 2 series against Temple. If Dobbs had come in at the beginning of the second half, the ending might have been much less exciting, and the outcome different.

I think it's AWESOME that Dobbs gets to start. Dobbs will bring his game face! Now, the defense needs to bring-it! The coaching staff needs to adjust the game for each players abilities. I am ready for the ball to move. Go Midshipmen!!!!! And Dobbs work your magic, Mr. Excitement :)
