Like others have said since we're not in the "making friends" business at this point with other CAA Programs/HCs we need to blow Rob Ambrose's Tigers out this weekend. No hard feelings. It's just something that needs to be done or we'll be on the road potentially for our quarterfinal matchup potentially with Villanova or Eastern Washington.

You might have a point about VU, but EWU with 2 conference losses isnn’t going to be seeded abead of JMU.

We should thank Towson for not playing last season and thereby having Bryce Carter bolt for JMU. Carter has played very well, far better than the big d-lineman we lost to them.

Dogs always better than cats.
Are we playing a backup QB again? I think Ferguson went down with an injury last week.

JMU 36 (Ratke kicks 12 FG’s including one that is drop kicked just to show off).
Tiggers 14

FWIW JMU has scored 2 non offensive TDs: pick 6 vs Maine, and scoop and score @ Weber. None in the last 7 games. Zero special teams TDs.

That was always one of the problems with our time in the CAA, we didn't have a 'season ender' type rival with the exception of the two years ODU was in the league and even they were the last game only one of the two seasons ODU was there.

I always thought it should have been WM or UR, but they had their own rivalry that the CAA chose over ours. To be fair, I never saw WM as a rival, either.
IMO it should have been Delaware. We had a history and both programs were solid.
But that would have been a rational decision, which is exactly why the CAA never did it.
The lesson is: rivalries are never forced. They just happen.
I am SO excited about the Sun Belt as we have at the least two rivals right out of the gate with ODU and App State.

We have definitely been trying to get Ratke the all time points record and we will do so and then unleash our incredible red zone offense...


At least I hope so.

Delaware has their rivalry with Nova though, so that doesn't make sense. Towson could have been something but they weren't part of the old Yankee Football rivals and didn't join the A-10 until the very end, so the history wasn't there.

We kind of had a similar situation to UMD when they were in the ACC where their top rivals (UVA, Duke, UNC) never really considered them their #1 rival (UVA has VT and UNC, Duke has UNC and NCST, UNC has Duke, NCST and UVA).

This is why moving to the SBC will be great. We SHOULD get ODU in the final week of the season every year. A much more true rival. I don't care if it's going opposite the commonwealth cup. It'll become better than it real quick.

I looked back and using the 2004 season as a starting point of the modern JMU football era. Every season featured a "rivalry" game against Towson since 2004 except the following:

2010 - Maine
2011 - Massachusetts
2012 - Old Dominion
2014 - Elon
2015 - Villanova
2016 - Elon
2017 - Elon
2019 - Rhode Island
2020 - Not counting this year

17 seasons excluding 2020. 9 of 17 featured Towson, 3 featured Elon. Almost the entire 2010s decade, we bounced around.

The reality is that JMU doesn't have a FB rival but I suppose Towson was the one the CAA kept forcing on us with the leftovers after all the real rivals were matched up. The tigers were what was left over, regionally.

RE: Week 12 - Towson at JMU, 2pm
'Rivalry' weekend is a bit overblown. For a lot of schools that always play the same opponent it's more 'tradition' than actual 'rivalry'. For everyone else it's just another game on the schedule. The term was co-opted by some posters as another means to conveniently skewer our admin, conference, and FCS.

That said, playing ODU as the last game each year would make a lot of sense and hopefully the schools and SB are open to it.

Montana 2008 was the coldest JMU home football game of all time. Nothing else was even close.
