JMU finished up with an RPI equivalent to that of ECU, ahead of both Tulsa and UConn. Here's how the sim says they would have fared against UConn's (3-9) schedule. JMU played ECU and won 34-14, so I didn't sim that one:JMU would have kicked serious ass in football in this league last year. Both of their lines were legit.
I live in VA, my son went to Madison and a very good friend is wired in in Harrisonburg. There is absolutely zero noise about any conference move. They would love to move up...spent money adding on to their stadium with a plan to increase it further.i have two friends both telling me they're hearing rumors of JMU to the AAC. Anyone else hearing this?
Only if UConn has the resources to send all of the teams on a charter.We couldn’t swing a direct flight to Charlottesville?
Charlottesville is a tiny airport with just 1 runway at under 7,000 feet and limited facilities. Thus, its going to be mostly regional jets flying there from the main hubs in NYC, Philly, Dulles, Chicago, Atlanta, Charlotte with an occasional 737. Better off flying to Dulles direct from BDL and driving from there (about 2 hours), just time it to avoid the worst parts of the DC rush.We couldn’t swing a direct flight to Charlottesville?
One of the best FCS football programs on the east coast? Yeah they can come in. Would be a good addition from a football perspective. That photo of their football stadium is actually only half of their “unfinished” stadium. I think it fits 25k right now with potential to expand with better conference to over 40k.
