Re: Question from renewed/bandwagoner fan I guess:
To be fair - it's probably easier for a 1AA to keep and appear clean.
Also - I think the admissions office at Tech and UVA are a little more helpful in getting key player in the door.
The more you see yourself on ESPN, the more you seem to see an "I" in team.
That said, this set of coaches has been in tact for the 2000's for the most part. The players seem to be a reflection of the coaching personalities on this team. The current coaches on JMU are not wild, and they are a fairly conservative and focused bunch compared to many other coaches. Most if not all of the position coaches have dinner with their players on Thursday nights.
I saw earlier in the year - two of Delawares players got in trouble(with the police) while intoxicated at a party at one of the assistant coach's house following a loss earlier in the day. Keeler the next week suspended both players, but spaced them out a game apart so as not to hurt the team. :shock:
Mickey would never do that. :? And if he found out one of his coaches had a party during the season where drunken players got in trouble with the law. :shock: I witnessed earlier in the year two Senior players that were simply late to practice. They had a little extra attention from Mickey for 30 minutes following practice. After seeing what they went through, I'm scared to be late to a game. :shock:
I'll also say every team from USC, to Duke, to Notre Dame, to W&M, to RU, to JMU has problems, and MOST are kept in house and very few people find out.
It's scary to know how many things at UVA and VPI we never hear about.
JMU, The Pride of VA and Ohio
