It's the "F U" formation. Would be a pretty cool chant from the fans when we line up in it.

i tried to "scout" their game on ESPN3. it's the most laughably bad thing you've ever seen, please watch like 10 seconds of it. there is one camera.... that is directly behind the play by play guy. like, he's standing in the way of the shot. no other cameras. you basically just watch the back of the play-by-play guy the entire time, and you can sssssssort of see the field.

Ha ha. I've chuckled a bit over the last couple of weeks in the various JMU FB TV debacle threads when folks have brought up "ESPN-3 quality standards". Either they must watch a whole lot of different events than I or I have watched far too much ESPN-3 (likely from obscure games, ahem, I've wagered on...*cough* *cough*) or likely both, but their so-called "standards" aren't nearly as high to qualify a game for ESPN-3 coverage as some might have you believe. The one you outline might be the extreme for the low end of expectations, but I've seen others that make the MadiZone Slide Show seem like a high-tech production. 04-jawdrop

Don't underestimate Limestone College. Limestone may end up our JMU's home schedule for the next 5 years.

Haha I've got to watch a few minutes of that. That's really bad.

RE: JMU versus ETSU Preparation Thread
Was just looking out of curiosity at the available single game tickets for the upcoming ETSU game via JMU Sports site... http://ev9.evenue.net/cgi-bin/ncommerce3...Code=&cgc=

Looks like 100's-200's-300's sections are unavailable (assume sold out and/or accounted for by students)...low availability in some of the upper deck sections though none available in the middle 6 upper deck sections and low availability in Sections 6 & 8 on the east side. I hope some walk-up sales and folks buying this week get this game close to 25K. The team deserves the support coming off the win, being #1 in the nation, celebrating last year's national title, and so on. Weather - at least for now - looks like it will be a Chamber of Commerce kind of day to boot. Enjoy the moment.

It was our opener in our new stadium. Who would have thunk that ESPN is retarded enough to not even try to test their setup before the game...

Also here is a good laugh about the legend why we're the buccaneers.

Also I am looking forward to this game. I am a student at ETSU and my dad is a graduate from JMU. I will call this game a win if we manage to beat the spread.


[edit] Your website for tickets shows our old blue alien logo. Plz do not think we still have this logo in use.
