I think he's angling for the Commish job in the new realigned conference. 03-wink
Maybe MM talked to Joe D and already knew the regional model was going to be in play this season in the CAA

RE: Mickey's back
Seems like a pretty big unfair advantage for Richmond since they're already used to playing in a stadium without fans except when JMU comes to town.

JMU football is never close to what it is today without Mickey, but it's also not quite what it is today if Mickey were still around. He coached a style that could turn any game in to a near coin flip, he just needed to recognize way more often when we weren't outmatched and needed to keep our foot on the gas. Every time it bit us you'd hope he'd learn from it and he never did.

Akron and especially the last ODU game are the perfect examples. Akron we go up 13-0 and are clearly the better team despite the FCS label, but he decides we should try to run clock for three quarters and we're down 14-13 by halftime. ODU we're up 21-10 on a team that everyone knows has an insane offense and no defense but then played like he thought we could run clock the whole second half.

I also think that even though obviously most of us would agree with a lot of his thinking he's still thinking too small for JMU football. Staying FCS and playing in a conference with W&M, Richmond, ODU, Villanova, Delaware, Elon, Towson... Every year the expectation will be to go undefeated in conference and make the trip to Frisco, still the six foot tall second grader.

You said all of this better than I could have. Spot on!

Hence why my two division FCS and FBS Caa conference has legs.

It’s groundbreaking if I don’t say so myself and very much the future regional model that would work.

Would not surprise me if Clayton had a lot of input on the article.
