Chattanooga at JMU predictions
The Mocs are coming to the Burg after hosting JMU last year and it looks like it will be in the mid 70's with a slight chance of rain in the morning, but clear skies in the afternoon and evening for the game. It should be another great day to tailgate in the valley.

The Mocs are getting some votes in the top 25, but are trying to break in a grad transfer QB who couldn't get on the field at ODU for 3 years. The Duke's defense should be licking their lips for a chance to give this guy a rude welcoming. An easy early lead will give Cignetti plenty of chances to play both QB's in attempts to discern who will grasp the starter's role. Johnson or Maloney? Maloney or Johnson? Make up your mind Cig!!! It doesn't matter in this game as the Dukes run wild for 300+ yards and dominate a lesser FCS program.

JMU 41
Chattanooga 13

Back to reality...
The Dukes aren't playing in 2020, but Chattanooga is. Although the SoCon cancelled their conference season, the Mocs are playing in October against FBS Western Kentucky. Weird Wild Stuff. A one game season.

There won't be a full slate of college football until the SEC starts Sept 26th, but there are 42 teams playing this weekend including Clemson at Wake Forest where the Deamon Deacons will get their first ever College GameDay visit this Saturday morning. Now there are only 6 FBS programs that have never hosted GameDay, but this day probably won't end well as Wake's stud QB Jamie Newman transferred to Georgia then opted out of the season due to COVID. Coach Clawson may take a step back this year in what could have been a banner season for the Deacs if Newman had stayed. Perhaps he will consider returning to Richmond if Wake's record turns south after his slow build to relevance in the ACC.

Worst of all, Deangelo Amos and Adeeb Atariwa are practicing with UVA and now only 8 days away from sporting the orange & blue on the field. It will be interesting to watch and disgusting at the same time.

Dukes crush again.

AT least it won't be as freaking hot as it was in Chattanooga last year, Hit about mid to high 90's at game time. Saw one of the Dukes players moms collapse and faint from heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Response by the stadium EMT's was pathetic, they tried to revive her for a while and then literally hauled her up the stands like a rolled up carpet. Did hear later on that she was OK.

Really missing watching the Dukes this fall. have tuned in to a few of the other games on TV but with few or no fans in the stands makes it very difficult to watch. Hoping for some action in the spring.

Go Dukes.

If we had not decided to bag football this fall, today would have been JMU at UVA. UVA never found a replacement for VMI and JMU was the best option until we backed out of football this fall.

JMU at UVA today and JMU at UNC next weekend would have been fun.

A RTD article examining the cost of putting up the FB team in a hotel the night before home games. Interesting in that JMU, Mickey Matthews and JB are quoted often. Hope this link opens and isn’t hidden behind a paywall. Overall there really isn’t anything surprising in the article except JMU only pays around $6,700 for 65 game day players, and the top P5 program cited runs a $52k tab.

Turning on the tv and see others playing is extremely painful.

Looks like you won’t see the ex JMU guys playing for Uva until October 3rd at the earliest. Va Tech UVA postponed.

Eh.....who cares.

I just hope JMU football can get a 'real' camp-like, spring football process for the fall.
