RE: JMU versus Norfolk State Preparation Thread
Does NSU have a football board? Can't seem to find an active one anywhere, other than this:
http://beholdnsu.proboards.com

That board looks pretty dead.

It looks like they play in a 30k stadium at home, and had ~12k attendance in 2012 timeframe, so a bit surprised by this.

Home stadium isn't too shabby for a MEAC team:

There's going to be more purple and gold in those stands next year than Green & Yellow (yes it's yellow not gold!)

JMU -66
NSU - 7

Hoping there are wholesale substitutions in this game. Get some meaningful snaps for the 2nd teamers. Last week it was halfway through the 4th before there was mass substitution.

Our stadium is rare. Largest FCS stadium in the state and largest on campus HBCU stadium in the country.

RE: JMU versus Norfolk State Preparation Thread
One thing where JMU/Bourne screwed up with the schedule. You're weakest home opponent you should put as one of your 3 'draw' games where a weak opponent doesn't matter as much (opener, parents' weekend, or homecoming). Not a stand alone game between the home opener and parents' weekend. Dumb.

Thanks for the info, booman. I hope you will be making it to H'burg this weekend. Welcome to you all. I look forward to seeing your stadium (and a JMU victory) next year. Good luck.

What else could they have done though? E. Tenn. St. College University of Memphis was the opener and I don't think you are suggesting just flipping them and NSU. I bet more students/alums know where NSU is located over ETSCUofM.

Is flipping the game weekends with a CAA opponent really possible? How much say does JMU have when scheduling CAA games? I guess ideally we have a weak game for parents weekend (when the crowd isn't as big of a factor) and then HC feature the toughest team we play that year at home. I don't want to play Nova/UR/UNH in week 2 or 3 though which means we are back in where we are now.

I'll say that the real solution isn't finding the perfect 'draw' games but instead scheduling the more perfect teams. There aren't many good reasons to schedule a top 15 team but there is NO reason to schedule two bottom 25 teams. I liked VMI in 06/07. I liked Lehigh. I think EKU or W. Carolina or Furman or Ivy (if possible) would be good opponents and draw more chatter than NSU or ETSCUofM
