Though this might surprise you Army Football is one of the most storied franchises in college football. During the 1940's turnouts at Notre Dame / Army football games in New York city were over 100,000 at the old polo grounds. They are the owners of a number of undefeated seasons and two national championships. They have produced three Heisman trophy winners. Vince Lombardi was an assistant coach at Army. Army's current coach is Bobby Ross, who took the San Diego Chargers to the Super Bowl. Notre Dame's Rockne Gymnasium has the Army Academy crest inscribed on the side as a sign of their respect for their war time service.more...
Army's traditional rival is Navy, whose nationally televised game is normally shown on whatever weekend the more popular teams don't happen to be playing (typically early Dec). Its a decent draw, normally played in Giants Stadium, JFK in philadelphia, or one year head scratchingly in the Rose Bowl
Modern recruiting and the requirement of a service obligation after graduation has now unfortunately reduced Army Football to a laughingstock of the CFL. (Which some recent bright spots... close losses to Alabama and Auburn in bowl games) At one point they set a record of losses in college football by going 0-13.
Have to give some credit to Army Football guys though cause they have to attend class, have to take their own tests, and have to do all the crummy stuff the other academy guys do.
I don't know how in the heck Navy football pulls ...

Something unique and short-lived.
Etymology: The word comes from the Steagles team in the National Football League, which played for one season during World War Two.
In 1943, the Philadelphia Eagles and the Pittsburgh Steelers combined teams due because of an NFL contraction to eight teams caused by a lack of quality players due to armed services obligations. The consolidated team was officially called the Philadelphia-Pittsburgh Eagles-Steelers, but fans and sportswriters eschewed the awkward, run-on official name and dubbed the new fused team "The Steagles".
The Steagles played four games at Philadelphia's Shibe Park and two games at Pittsburgh's Forbes Field, going 5-4-1, the first winning record in the history of pro football in Philadelphia. In 1944, the Eagles went back to being their own team, while the Steelers merged with the Chicago Cardinals (converting back to singular status in 1945).
Thus, a "Steagle" is a one-year phenomenon, a unique, exciting event. It also symolizes something less than ideal that seemingly has become better through its idealization over time.
"Irvin Faust's novel 'The Steagle' (NY: Random House, 1966) is about an alienated English literature professor, a Walter Mitty-type who daydreams about war, old movies and professional sports. 'The Steagle,' which was made into an unsuccessful 1971 movie starring the nebbish Richard Benjamin, is about someone stuck in an idealized past."
