Congratulations JMU — FCS National Champs


While I don’t normally post about sports, the FCS championship win Saturday by James Madison University is worth celebrating, not just because it is a Valley school, but because it is my son’s alma mater.

Located in Harrisonburg in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, JMU’s fans reportedly filled three-fourths of the stadium in Frisco, Texas, part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Indeed, purple overwhelmed the stands.

JMU scored early in the game and led from then on. The score was much more lopsided until the closing minutes of the game when Youngstown got a touchdown to make it a closer 28-14 ending.

Congratulations, JMU! You’ve made your students, faculty, alumni, and Virginia proud.

    I second the motion !! Great football year; JMU is national champ in its class, Hokes beat Arkansas, Clemson beats Ohio State, then Clemson beats ‘Bama. I recorded that whole game, and extended the time by 15 minutes so that I wouldn’t miss anything. Game lasted about 18 minutes, so After a night of watching , and fast-forwarding through the entire game, I missed that winning touchdown. I’ll never extend a football game recording again for less than 30 minutes!! So the ACC did pretty good against the SEC and the other conferences!! YLSF
