No way this team loses 3 games this year.

In 2005 people were saying the same thing- Defending national champ, pre season #1. JMU had no I-A game and a Div 2. Finnished 7-4/5-3.

It could happen if Schor went down or got hit with a rash of injuries, esp at one position.

A 3 loss team isn't good enough to win a championship. We'll have to do better than that.

While I generally agree, someone forgot to tell RU that in 2008. 9-3/6-2 regular season..Finished 13-3..

Along a similar topic, a 7-4 team could make the semis.
-VU did it it 2010 (finished 9-5), losing to eventual national Champ EWU. VU was the defending NC. As I recall Matt Szczur got hurt during the regular season, missed a bunch of games including a couple of their losses, then they got him back for the playoffs. Ironically that season UD made the NC game after going 9-2/6-2 (no I-A game).
-UNH did it in 2013 (finished 10-5), losing to eventual national champ NDSU.

If JMU lost Schor for say half the regular season, and/or a bunch of other key starters, then got them back for the playoffs, could go 8-3, and then make a NC run.

9-2 and deep playoff run. We'll either get back to Frisco or lose a heartbreaker in the semis in Harrisonburg. I'm worried about injuries and our O-line this year.

Technically. There is a way to lose 3 games, not win them. However I respect your opinion. We have exposure. I believe we have a chance to be very special again but injuries and just honestly poor play makes 11-1 become 8-3. Does a loss by 1 point to Villanova and Richmond, a loss to ECU does that make us not NC material. 11-1 is just as feasible as what I proposed. I'm happy to be proven wrong, it doesn't change the fact I desire for us to win every game, but no chance to loose three isn't a fair statement.

You COULD win the lottery IF you pick the winning numbers.

Clearly I'm looking at the season through a purple haze.

That being said, it would take a train wreck, given the combination of these players and this coaching staff, to lose 3 games during the regular season. We did beat a damn good Villanova team last year on the road without Schor for most of that game. Team was good enough to win with its Johnson hanging out......

No losses and another National Championship. There will be no roller coaster season either with close scores, we will be on top of our game every week. I'm feeling it.

9-2 regular season...I think ECU and one of UR, W&M, or UD beats us.

As coach houston says, his teams are made to win in November. If we make the playoffs as a seed, I would be surprised if we don't make the Championship.

Following the Super Bowl another play-off is scheduled between the Dukes and the SB winner. Slightly more difficult, but the Dukes pull away in the 4th to win by multiple scores.

DooX roots!! 04-cheers
