I really believed it was gonna happen.
It looked so much like a slam-dunk for James Madison to head to the Division 1-AA championship game, going into last night.
All right, you want to hear me say it...so here it is: I was wrong. Satisfied now??
Montana came to Harrisonburg to play, and JMU got caught up in the ESPN2 spotlight. Well, that and the fact Rodney Landers wasn't around for the 2nd half. Not an excuse, folks...just fact.
The box score read 35-28 Montana, but let's be honest, shall we?? This game was lost pretty much in the 1st half; the 3rd quarter was just overkill. No focus whatsoever for the Dukes, none.
But for the short time Rodney was on the field, admit I was right about him. It's nice to play "what if", but I'm dealing in reality here. And the reality is, JMU stunk up the joint (Bridgeforth Stadium) last night.
(The Richmond-Northern Iowa game is on right now as I'm writing this. It's 3-0 Northern Iowa just starting the 2nd quarter, and they're marching down the field. I'm of the opinion since JMU lost, why should Richmond move on?? Why ruin my weekend more??)
Christ, I'm bummed...
