I had typing class with his son in High School. Nice kid.
You took typing.


Lol

I took typing in high school too. Flunked it.

So the whole "AAC... oops CAA" thing was simply because you suck at typing? Phew, thought it was just a lame attempt at smack.

Another fun JMU fact - they have a women's soccer team.

Used in a sentence:
Last night Navy Women's Soccer beat JMU 2-1.

James Madison to the AAC - fills the void left from the VT and WV BE departures. 05-stirthepot

UMASS to the AAC to regain the New England void left when BC and Providence departed the BE. 05-stirthepot

BYU and Army to the AAC - National brands and acknowledge by the P5 as P5's for scheduling purposes. Puts the Army / Navy game in the AAC for National Branding purposes and frees up an OOC for Navy for scheduling purposes. 05-stirthepot 05-stirthepot 04-jawdrop 02-13-banana COGS 07-coffee3 04-cheers
The AAC officially becomes the P6 conference similar to the Old BE in stature and financially. Definitely leaves the other G4 conferences in the dust. Rimshot 01-donnankungfu 03-2thumbsup 01-france

Why is it the JMU Dukes and the mascot is a dog?

Is there a story behind this or is it lame like Iowa State Cyclones but their mascot is cardinal to rival the hawk at their instate rival Iowa?

When did "typing class" get removed from the high school curriculum? Late '80s?

No idea on Alabama. I'm sure there is a back story. I hoped you could provide the one for JMU. Maybe you don't know.

No idea on Alabama. I'm sure there is a back story. I hoped you could provide the one for JMU. Maybe you don't know.

Let me give JMU fans a lesson...

"The first men's basketball team was formed in 1947 and the players chose the nickname “The Dukes,” in honor of Madison President Samuel P. Duke. The players told President Duke they would name their team for him if he'd provide them with towels and equipment.

When the men's intercollegiate athletic program began its rapid expansion in the 1970s, the need arose for a mascot that could be used to generate spirit. There really wasn't any way to turn a “Duke” into a mascot that would engender enthusiasm among students, alumni and other fans.

The idea for the Duke Dog came from Dr. Ray V. Sonner, then director of public affairs. (Sonner later became vice president for university relations and senior vice president. Sonner Hall on campus is named in his honor.) Sonner's rationale was that the stereotypical pet for British royalty, such as a duke, would be an English bulldog. Duke Dog was born."

Husky,
Thanks for the lesson, but already knew all of that , it helped others greatly. Do you know Uconn's record against the Dukes in football?

Even Va. Tech's coach Fuentes defended EZU's losses to WVU & JMU. He said, " there ar not many FBS programs running to their AD's to put JMU on their schedule."

So good luck Coach Mo and the Pirates... go beat the Chokies!

The dog came first. One day while he was taking a crap an administrator noticed how that pile of crap resembled their athletic department. So they adopted the nickname Dookies which was later shortened to Dukes.
