King George, VA - Birthplace of James Madison and Homeplace of three JMU Hall of Famers; and OJF!
Maybe the money they are saving by not firing Brady will be used to pay any exit fees. A guy can dream, right?
I bleed purple!
I don't think Matt should get any consideration or sympathy for having "lost" Millen. You're not the only one who's said that '84. I just don't get it. Brady did that to himself.
I didn't say he deserved sympathy or compassion on Millen. He, Brady that is, knew it was probably a 50/50 proposition that was worth taking a gamble on and he lost, of course. Having seen him play, he would have been an impactful player. They took a chance on him when they brought him in to begin with (and it didn't work out). That's what happens when you're dealing with JUCOs.
That D-lineman that transferred in from Army was granted a sixth year, as I recall. I'm not familiar enough with NCAA regs to comment further, but there was a case to be made for Millen.
I just haven't heard any facts to back up that decision by Brady. If it's 50/50, that's not good odds if you need him to save your job.
