JMU
10-17-2009, 03:34 PM
Purple on Purple. Excellent!!!

dukeDoom
10-17-2009, 03:42 PM
another pathetic start

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 03:42 PM
Wow! 7-0 kitty cats-Just like that.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 03:52 PM
Justin Thorpe just has no clue. And, Sullivan is the worst RB on the team but somehow Mickey maintains his obsession.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 03:58 PM
Acker shoul have 20 carries today but logical things don't happen.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 03:59 PM
Thorpe is awful....just awful.

10-17-2009, 04:02 PM
Great-what a crap penalty. late hit

dukeDoom

3rd down defense has sucked all year

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:05 PM
Nova gets a 20 yard gain on one play. We might have that for the quarter.
Nice sack by Moats to end the 1st.

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:06 PM
Its obvious that the defense is going to have to take a HUGE roll in this game. Moats is definitely doing his job so far!

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:08 PM
102 total yards for Nova. 36 for us. Pitiful.

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:10 PM
42 yd fg for nova. 10-0. need something on this drive.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:12 PM
can we put Thorpe at RB next year and let Drew play QB?

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:13 PM
That actually sounds like a good idea in the vein of the wildcat, has the potential to be REALLY useful!

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:15 PM
am I the only one who feels anytime it's 3rd and more than 3, that we have neither the playcalling nor quarterbacking ability to ever get a first down?

this game is going to get real ugly for us. The way this is going, i see the biggest IAA whipping we've gotten in a long, long time.

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:15 PM
4 plays then a punt. Offense is just horrible. Same plays over and over and over.

dukeDoom
10-17-2009, 04:16 PM
offense is hopeless.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:16 PM
Thorpe is laughable at this point. Do we have anyone else?

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:17 PM
Yea, a true freshmen.

which is better, a redshirt frosh, or a true frosh? tough call.

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:17 PM

I agree -- just nothing going after 1st and 2nd down and the same plays OVER AND OVER in EVERY game...they have these things called VIDEOS where the coaches on other teams watch them...COMEON MICKEY mix it up!

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:18 PM
it's nice our D-Line can play.

I hate to see what we'd be without them

Duke Dawg

at this point I don't even thing it's the playcalling as much as there's tape on Thorpe....and it's just obvious he can't read a pass defense.

teams are just going to load the box with 8/9 men and dare Thorpe to do something. But this issue is compounded by our coaching staff's inability to do something creative to counter this.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:22 PM
and Thorpe gets sacked.

I vote for seeing what Seaton's got.

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:23 PM
3rd and 20 and we convert!! great catch by rock

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:23 PM
and Thorpe loses 6 yards.

Now I REALLY vote for seeing what Seaton can do

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:23 PM
wow....a forward pass for yardage? shocking !

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:24 PM
Thorpe fumbles near midfield. Nova ball

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:24 PM
a forward pass then a fumble? NOT shocking...

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:24 PM
some scores:

New Hampshire 7
UMass 3

Wofford 26
Appy 13

Arkansas 7

was he down?

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:25 PM
Seaton time !

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:25 PM
Yea, a true freshmen.

We have to get Thorpe out of there. There's no ball contol at all. He's just awful.

dukeDoom
10-17-2009, 04:26 PM
thorpe is terrible and that fumble will end this game.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:26 PM
first down nova.

jmu_03
10-17-2009, 04:26 PM
Thorpe = not very good. Had to state the obvious to feel better.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:26 PM
touchdown nova. flag on play.

GoDukes
10-17-2009, 04:26 PM
Agreed, DD. What do we have to lose at this point? This is shameful.

dukeDoom
10-17-2009, 04:27 PM
this team will quit after another NOVA score.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:27 PM
and the rout is on !

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:28 PM
This is noooot good...but if there is one thing that the APP State game proved its that the dukes have potential to come back..

hburg
10-17-2009, 04:28 PM
wow..this stinks. Definitely bummed...:-(

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:28 PM
it is so quiet in the stadium.

GoDukes
10-17-2009, 04:28 PM
Schick: "6:16 to go in the ballgame."

Man, I wish. another 30 minutes on top of that. Hopefully Vanillano-fun puts in the subs in the 2nd half.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:28 PM
the good news is, Nova and Richmond lose alot next year, so maybe they'll drop down to our new level, which is the "suck" level.

JMU_Rocks
10-17-2009, 04:29 PM
A big hole.

Nova up 17 - 0

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:30 PM
no one looks pumped up at all. look at all the heads down.

dukeDoom
10-17-2009, 04:30 PM
any chance we can switch coaches at halftime?

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:31 PM
I think they have there heads down because they know our offense has no chance to score more than 17 points.

hburg
10-17-2009, 04:31 PM
I really do think JMU will be a team to beat next year. Just not this year.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:32 PM
good run thorpe.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:32 PM
gosh he carries the ball so poorly. so much of the ball is visible.

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:33 PM
Another Thorpe fumble!! Nova recovers. SH#T!

GoDukes
10-17-2009, 04:33 PM
Fumble much?

hburg
10-17-2009, 04:33 PM
Thooooooorppppeeeeeee whhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy?

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:33 PM
seriously.....WHY keep him in the game !!!!!

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:34 PM
3 thorpe fumbles in how many drives?

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:35 PM
Impressive fumble to first down stats...what is it nearly 1-1....ridiculous

JMU_Rocks
10-17-2009, 04:35 PM
JT - confidence has to be shot. We need a turnover or big play to take the pressure off the O.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:35 PM
thorpe injured?

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:35 PM
It's just sickening how bad he is.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:36 PM
this is awful. the defense is so frustrated.

hburg
10-17-2009, 04:37 PM
Unless JMU comes out of the 2nd half on fire, this game is done.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:37 PM
the defense is getting some valuable work that will pay huge dividends the next couple years.

we are a predominantly freshman and soph D....these lessons learned this year will make them nasty in the future.

JMU_Rocks
10-17-2009, 04:38 PM
Defense might be quitting some now.

Sir Duke
10-17-2009, 04:38 PM
We've gone from a team that used to fall out of bed scoring touchdowns to a team that can barely muster a first down. Painful.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:38 PM
the defense is still trying. good stuff Brown. 2 tackles for a loss.

GoDukes
10-17-2009, 04:39 PM
thorpe injured?

His pride and confidence have to be.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:39 PM
brown and dj bryant...2 cornerstones of next year's DLine

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:39 PM
32 yard field goal is good. 20-0

VBDuke95
10-17-2009, 04:39 PM
Nice sack on 2nd down. Hang in there D. Kept Nova to a fg. 20-0. Moral victory.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:40 PM
A white guy CAN'T be athletic, can he? Seriously, our announcers are more embarrassing than our team. The guy is fast and white. Get over it.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:41 PM
i think scotty overran the field goal block.

Obviously you have not opened the program.

villanova players are dropping like flies on this fieldturf. maybe we can win by attrition.

JMU_Rocks

Need points here going into the half - even 3.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:42 PM

obviously. I know nothing about JMU football.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:43 PM
sullivan shaken up.

94Duke
10-17-2009, 04:43 PM
It's over.
at least 2 and arguably 3 games you can lay at the feet of the prodigy #7.

He's gonna be great according to Mick.

I really don't see how a guy who cannot throw and has no pocket presence is going to EVER be great.

Put him at running back. He kinda reminds me of Griff. I really like Griff.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:45 PM
i think he would be better suited at wide receiver.

JMU_Rocks
10-17-2009, 04:45 PM
Why hasn't Griff played for most of the 1st half?

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:46 PM
into nova territory. come on now lets get some points.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:46 PM
obviously. I know nothing about JMU football.

Might want to actually check how young that defense is.

hburg
10-17-2009, 04:46 PM
I don't think Thorpe really has the confidence right now.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:46 PM
what a great throw and catch there!

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:47 PM

I just did

15 of the 22 members on the depth chart are either freshmen or sophomores

DBJMU06

perfect ending to the half

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 04:51 PM
so who wants to look back and see what the worst beating we've taken at home was the last 10 years?

this might come close

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:51 PM
Justin Thorpe is just inexplicably horrible.

JMUTrippster
10-17-2009, 04:52 PM
Can we replace all aspects of our offense...what is going on...Mickey better fire them up at the half

jmu_03
10-17-2009, 04:52 PM
Awesome, crap kicking to add to the package.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 04:52 PM
so what now?

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes
10-17-2009, 04:52 PM

10-17-2009, 05:00 PM
Harrisonburg,VA (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of an Rockingham County courtroom drama today when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him. After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him. After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the JMU Dukes Football Team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

Just sickening that Mickey possibly gave away two games for Justin. I think he will be good, but right now he's just lost.

94Duke
10-17-2009, 05:04 PM
I'm so sick of watching this offense.

I expected a Junior Varsity passing game but I figured if Thorpe did nothing else this week he would not fumble the ball.

Why on earth does anyone think things will improve. He cannot throw an 8 yard out. Did you see it skip off the turf when they needed the 1st ?

DukesPMR
10-17-2009, 05:05 PM
wonder if mickey still thinks thorpe gives them the best opportunity to win?

As opposed to Kevon Seaton? Kerby Long?

Unfortunately, Thorpe is gonna make mistakes, but he's the man at this point.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 05:06 PM
Thorpe has a long way to go.

I remind myself that he's a freshmen. But then I remember we likely punted 2 games away this year by Mickey's stupid decision to alternate Mr. Turnover with a perfectly good, experienced QB that did nothing to deserve sitting out every other series.

Duke Dawg
10-17-2009, 05:07 PM
As opposed to Kevon Seaton? Kerby Long?

Unfortunately, Thorpe is gonna make mistakes, but he's the man at this point.

I'm actually strongly in favor of seeing what Seaton can do.

Thorpe is LOSING games for us with his turnovers.

And there is no film on Seaton. So defenses might not know that he can't throw. Heck, we don't even know if he can throw yet or not. At this point, there is nothing to lose. Throw Seaton in there and see what he's got, and let Thorpe sit and watch some.

DBJMU06
10-17-2009, 05:10 PM
i wonder if Dudzik will get a chance next year?

JMU
10-17-2009, 05:12 PM
We are a young team. Only 13 Seniors. 20 Sophmores, 15 Redshirt Freshmen, and 21 Freshmen. We are playing for experience this year. Rebuilding. No doubt in my mind.

By the way Delaware is kicking arse 35-0. It is going to be a long season.

Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuukes

Please point out which players you think are going to get so much better. The defensive line -- which is the only good par of the defense -- is pretty much gone. Scotty is gone. Williams and Veney suck, as do the safties even if they play for the next 10 years. Explain to me how funny it is.

2 plays, 0 yards.

great start to the 2nd half

DBJMU06

And this is homecoming-yikes. Defense is done. Exhausted. They are getting beat like rented mules. December is now free.

We take over on downs. Lets have some pride and at least break the shut out.

I think Mick might have to consider a new OC for next season.

I think for here on out, Micky shouldn't focus on winning a game, but rather focus on getting Thorpe and the Offense better.

Wow did anyone just see that? I think that's why they tell people to stay off the white line

Blame it on the weather. Gray. Cold. Drizzle for 4 days. There was no energy in Bridgeforth. No energy in the team. There are no leaders.

There's nothing to blame it on. We're just not a good football team.

Micky and crew definitely need to sit the team down with Thorpe and talk about the importance of leadership. Thorpe, I believe needs to put these past few games behind him and do everything he can to make himself better and find a way to get the team to believe in him. Practice, Practice, Practice!

Yes, now it is a matter of playing for experience and developing leadership for the rest of the season. This is a young team and the future is now to develop these guys.
