Welcome to JMU Sports Blog, where amazing things happen.
Score didn’t necessarily reflect it but the Dukes played there best yet in breaking South Al at Bridgeforth this week! As we head into a well-earned and much-needed bye, we start to think about whether JMU can make it 6 (or more) this season.
4-0 is 4-0. An optimists’ take on the young season.
Let’s talk this out and never speak of this one again. Dukes dominated, collapsed, escaped! But did we find the offense?! Enormous challenge up next with South Al in town for Family Weekend!
Dukes Clear a Tough Hurdle
Dukes ground out a big-boy dub over Troy down in southeastern Alabama and hit the road again to Utah St. this week. We talk defensive heroes and young pups. Plus we begin (more to come for sure) to discuss the retirement of legendary AD Jeff Bourne and why his replacement will be so important. And finally a fun OT confessing our pop-culture blind spots. Much love to one of the best rooters among us, our friend Zac, for saving this week’s production!
36-35. Troy next.
Dukes 36, Hoos 35 in an absolute classic. We had a great time discussing a fan experience that was more emotional than we expected. This one meant a lot and we let our most loquacious sides ramble down the glorious road to victory four decades in the making. Oh yeah, there’s another tough one coming this weekend as the Dukes head way down south to face the Trojans.
It’s UVA week!! (But yes that was arguably the worst blowout ever)
JMU downs Bucknell 38-3 but heads to Virginia with all kinds of questions at QB after a frustrating night.
It’s finally time, GAMEWEEK baby! We’re back and worse than ever for what could be a vintage Dukes season (but we’re pretty sure the audio is at least synced this week so we got that going for us). So so good to be back in the saddle and hope some of y’all will enjoy the ride with us all season long.
Favorite Part of the Week During Football Season
Honestly, during the football season, listening to this podcast each week on the way into work is my literal favorite part of that week. This podcast is an honest, fan oriented dialogue on JMU sports that recognizes our athletes are good kids who at the end of the day are just doing their best . . . but again, who are just kids. While always being honest, I love the positivity and lack of mean commentary from these guys. And these hosts are clearly just a couple of good guys who are so humble and definitely have their priorities straight in regards to sports and life in general. Thank you for continuing to take time to do this for old guys like myself (‘91 grad). It has a big impact on my week for sure.
