    We allowed fewer than 3 yds/play (not by much). That was my preseason goal (rule of thumb) for a decent D vs FCS.

    Fwiw, Our D had not held a single team to under 3yds/play in the last 10 years.

    What about under 150 yards total in a game. Do you know the last time that has happened?

    I've said it before and I'll say it again. JMU is an ACC level program. Bottom of the ACC, but still at that level. They're the second best team in Virginia

    James Madison was the second best FCS team last year give me a break. I’m glad Ted is gone, but James Madison is no joke.

    The D benefitted from at least three poor throws to a wide open WR. Our run defense looked pretty good. Only 1 sack that I can remember which is disappointing.

    We play an FCS team every year. Alcorn St 2018 is not the worst.

    We played heaps of guys on D including true freshmen.

    We've not done this well on D before.

    We're not saying we'll do it every week. We're saying doing it at all is good for us.

    And Clemson gave up over 150 and 7 points to Furman. GT has had enough abysmal defense performances that we can appreciate one where we manhandled a team. Even if that team wasn’t very good.

    Honestly I was disappointed. Not with results but with the fact I still didn’t see us able to get pressure on qb and we just didn’t play behind the los like I was expecting.

    He called a very vanilla game was not going to show anything in this game. All you wanted to see is that they played fast which they did.
