What a career. Sounds like was a great coach & class act.
I remember being at the Wofford @ #1 JMU quarterfinal game in 2008. The ankle biters gave JMU all they could handle as JMU scored a very late TD to win 38-35.
Houston: Made JMU Football Great Again.
28-2, 27-1 vs IAA, 17-0 at Bridgeforth, 17-0 vs the CAA.
1st Yankee/A-10/CAA team ever to go undefeated in league play in back to back seasons.
