National Championship JMU Versus NDSU January 11, 2020
Arguably JMU's best team, and some are saying the same about NDSU even with a freshman QB.

Without a doubt these are easily the best two teams in the FCS. Who's the best?

Time to put their streak to an end!

This is the worst of the NDSU teams we’ve played recently. We have to have the same success that’s Nicholls and Ill St had running the ball while adding competent QB play. Turnovers and explosive plays will dictate the outcome. On Defense we have to get them into 3rd and Long where Lance will be forced to actually read the field and their OL will be challenged by the most talented rushers they’ve seen to this point.

After watching each teams last three games I think JMU is better. NDSU is nearly impossible to beat because they never beat themselves.

I think actually this NDSU team vacillates between the worst and the best version we’ve seen depending on the week. Yesterday they were really good. They’ve had many other games like that this year. That said, they’ve shown surprising vulnerability in other games this year, especially recently.

This is going to be a showdown of titans. Let’s f’ing go!

Dukes win. The NDSU qb won't have time. The JMU coaches will have the defense ready to defend speedy #1 downfield.

JMU 27
NDSU 17

I believe JMU will win this game. I felt that we would make a statement against Weber State. Though there a couple of moments that were head-scratchers. But all in all, JMU dominated. See a 10 point win for JMu just as purplehazed suggested.

I think we may have an advantage in that we really haven't had to show much of our playbook throughout the playoffs. I expect to see many new wrinkles, including some shots downfield we haven't shown at all this year. Our D has allowed us to play very vanilla throughout our run. I like that.

I have a lot of faith in these coaches. Except when it come s to getting plays called during our two minute drill. WTF is that?? 03-banghead

Cig mentioned this after the game, and I'm sure they will work on correcting it. The great thing about this staff is they are never content with a win, and look for ways to fix/improve things every week.

So uh.....

https://www.ncaa.com/championships/footb...venue-info

It's listed twice that the lots open 2 hours before game time (9am local) on the official venue page. This can't possibly correct.....can it?

If I recall correctly, the lots were supposed to open at 8:00 in 2017, though somehow the NDSU RV crowd got them to open at 7:00. A lot of our fans were unaware that the lot wound up opening earlier.

Latest Massey computer rankings are out (combined FBS/FCS). Bison are ranked 29th, we are ranked 38th. We are currently the highest ranked team in The Commonwealth.

Just read those rules you posted. Jesus, why even have tailgating rules. Kickoff will be here by the time you get in and parked anyway. Also, I see streamers are still banned contraband.

Ps: NCAA & Frisco suck.

The main lots have previously advertised 7am opening and the NDSU mob shows up at 5am and they just end up letting them in. Be warned tailgaters, it’s full lots by 7:30/8am.

The move is to pack streamers into your jacket’s interior pockets. You bet I’m picking up multiple CASES of purple streamers after I land Thursday.

Jam a few rolls in your shorts, and by the time you throw them, nobody will know how they got in.

They don't check the hood part of a hoodie. Just fold it over to cover.

And by a few, he means dozens. Don’t worry everyone, those sandwich boards that say NO BACKPACKS NO STREAMERS at the stadium entrance will all be covered in purple streamers. It is my personal duty.

Also excellent advice. Lot of timid people got scared out of bringing streamers in last time. Hope they are all bolder this year. Although it was still a TON of streamers in the stadium last time.
