FCS Championship - JMU vs YSU

Post by 93henfan »

I think JMU takes this one in a cakewalk.

I'll go 41-21 JMU.
"In the seventh inning fans all get up and sing 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game,' and they're already there. It's really a stupid thing to say and I don't know who made 'em sing it. Why would somebody that's there get up and sing take me out to the ball game? The first person to do it must have been a moron." - Phillies color commentator Larry Andersen

I think you have to favor JMU but i'm pulling for YSU. I love being able to say that, more often than not in the history of the FCS playoffs, a team from outside of the top 4 seeds has won the title. North Dakota State's run was starting to compromise that.

Plus, it just seems right for Youngstown State to win it. Also that JMU coach is kind of over the top with his speeches. A bit much.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Some of my fondest memories of HS football were certain pre-game speeches by the coaches. Football is a mental, physical, AND emotional game.

As the season progressed, so did the YSU offense. I think their defense is a little better than NDSU's defense.

I am the one that picked the mediocre deplorables from YSU. They remind me of the 2010 Bison, only they won on a the controversial play at EWU to advance in the playoffs. No Bill Fette.

Their Dbacks did a little better than NDSU vs EWU. Bison had a couple big defensive players still in the game vs EWU too. Butkus list LB had a pick 6 against EWU and the starting defensive tackle was still playing. Not sure NDSU would have won without those 2 players in that game against the Eagles.

Looks like the suspended YSU safties suspended for failing NCAA drug tests were just taking after their DC, Carl Pelini, who was fired from the FAU HC job in 2013 after being caught smoking pot and using blow in Boca Raton
Carl Pelini resigned from FAU after allegations of cocaine, marijuana use

Included in email from JMU:
"....Tickets from the JMU allotment are now sold out, additional tickets can now be purchased from the NCAA Ticket Exchange."
https://fcs.flashseats.com/default.aspx ... 6140&ss=47

JMU's alotment according to some folks on the JMU board was 4000. How many tickets you could buy was based on Duke Club giving level...

Apparently YSU has also sold out their allottment...

Also tickets last year I heard were through the schools was $45. This year were jacked to $75 (+ processing & delivery). This must be due to 4k less seats...

Looks like they are all selling for near costs. JMU and YSU will have a good turnout in Frisco.

The stadium is under construction, and there are 5000 less seats available than last year. On AGS, the Bison fans appear to be selling all their tickets. JMU and YSU should be able to sell the place out.
