n homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the youn Antworten

(STATS) -- James Madison was near the top of the FCS world -- and the center of the college football universe -- heading into its last meeting with Richmond.The Dukes were 7-0 and ranked fourth in the STATS FCS Top 25 the morning that the ESPN College GameDay crew descended upon the Shenandoah Valley on Oct. 24, 2015. But what began as a watershed moment in program history ended as a nightmare befitting of the Halloween season. The Spiders upstaged JMUs usually unstoppable offense by rolling up a school-record 720 yards, and the Dukes lost All-America quarterback Vad Lee to a season-ending knee injury on the way to a deflating 59-49 loss.Though it still managed a No. 5 overall playoff seed and a share of the CAA Football title with Richmond and William & Mary, JMU never really recovered. A stunning upset loss at home to Colgate in the second round concluded a string of three defeats in five games and the Dukes once-viable national championship hopes.Its definitely something thats sat in our hearts for a little while now, quarterback Bryan Schor said of last years Richmond game.Lee and head coach Everett Withers are no longer around, and Lee Corso wont be donning any costumes of one of the nations founding fathers when the two CAA powers renew their rivalry Saturday at Richmonds Robins Stadium. Still, plenty of parallels exist between this matchup and last years historic clash.Seventh-ranked JMU (7-1, 5-0) has remained among the nations most explosive teams with Schor at the controls and Mike Houston now calling the shots, ranking in the top four in the FCS in scoring (49.4 ppg), total offense (529.0 ypg), rushing (316.4 ypg) and third-down conversion percentage (56.6). The Dukes are ahead of last seasons record-setting numbers in each of those categories.JMU cant be accused of looking ahead to this revenge opportunity, either, after displaying remarkable focus and precision in last Saturdays 84-7 pummeling of Rhode Island. Schor (1,633 passing yards, 15 TDs, 3 INTs) set a school record by completing 21 of 22 passes for a career-high 309 yards and five touchdowns as the Dukes established a new CAA mark for points in a conference game.What (Schor) did last week was extraordinary, Spiders coach Danny Rocco. They were firing on all cylinders last week. Hes the right guy right there running that ship and theyre having a great season.This is obviously an extremely talented team and were going to have to play a really good football game here, a real clean football game, if we expect to win here on Saturday.Richmonds overall results have been considerably less one-sided than those of the Dukes, whove outscored opponents 395-194 thus far. But what the No. 6 Spiders (7-1, 4-1) have lacked in gaudy statistics, theyve more than made up for in resiliency.UR, listed two spots behind JMU at No. 7 in the initial FCS selection committee playoff rankings, enters Saturdays showdown having won five straight. It has trailed or been tied in the second half of three of those victories and overcome several substantial personnel losses, most notably season-ending injuries to All-American safety David Jones and running backs Gordon Collins and Xavier Goodall.I think the one thing this group has is this belief, this conviction, this real understanding that we can do it, Rocco said. And I think with that comes a little higher expectation of what we want to be able to do each and every week.A defense anchored by seniors Winston Craig (7.5 sacks, 10 TFL) and Omar Howard (49 tackles, 7 TFL) may pose the biggest challenge yet for Schor and JMU. Richmond has yielded an FCS-low 131.9 passing yards per game, garnered 12 interceptions and allowed seven points over the last two wins, including a home shutout of nationally ranked Villanova on Oct. 15.The Dukes have been getting better on that side of the ball as well. A unit coordinated by Bob Trott, who spent the previous six seasons at Richmond in the same role, limited overmatched Rhode Island to 109 total yards and recorded five interceptions -- two of which were returned for touchdowns.Its something weve seen coming because we practice better every week, the kids are understanding where they fit more every week, theyre gaining more confidence in their preparation every week, Houston said. I think its a culmination of their hard work and the hard work of our defensive staff that were playing at the level we are right now.The Dukes still figure to have their hands full with Richmonds balanced attack. Quarterback Kyle Lauletta (2,194 yards, 16 TDs, 8 INTs) threw for a career-high 415 yards in last years meeting, including 204 and a touchdown to star receiver Brian Brown (53 receptions, 835 yards, 7 TDs). Redshirt freshman Deontez Thompson has eclipsed 100 rushing yards in two of the last three games.Richmond also carries a school-record 11-game home winning streak into Saturdays marquee matchup. The Spiders last loss at Robins Stadium came at the hands of the Dukes, a 55-20 defeat in November 2014.Fake NFL Jerseys For Sale . Following a lopsided 5-2 loss against the New Jersey Devils on Wednesday night, Paul MacLean told reporters that "theres a lack of focus, theres a lack of leadership and theres a lack of preparation" with his struggling team. That came on the heels of Bryan Murray taking the unusual step of going into the locker room at the Prudential Center and addressing the players himself. Fake NFL Jerseys Free Shipping . Just not the game. Kyle Palmieri scored two straight goals in the third period to rally the Anaheim Ducks past the Philadelphia Flyers 3-2 on Tuesday night. . "I dont know that were close," said general manager Alex Anthopoulos. "I just think, right now, the acquisition cost just doesnt work for us right now. I dont know if I can quantify how far off or things like that that they might be but I would say we continue to have dialogue. Fake NFL Jerseys Cheap . -- Three close looks at the bucket, three misses. Fake NFL Jerseys Wholesale . Supported by three-run homers from Jayson Werth and Wilson Ramos, the young right-hander went seven strong innings in the Washington Nationals 8-4 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday night.Sky Sports pundit Andy Walker says its time for Celtic to part company with manager Ronny Deila following their 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen at Pittodrie.It was a miserable night for the Scottish champions, who have now suffered back-to-back defeats following their shock loss against Ross County in the Scottish League Cup semi-final last weekend.Celtics lead at the top of the Scottish Premiership was cut to three points as goals from Jonny Hayes and Simon Church earned Aberdeen a 2-1 victory and former player Walker says owner Dermot Desmond has a big decision to make over Deila, who claimed on Tuesday he has the boards backing. He told Sky Sports: I didnt see any reaction from the Celtic players today after the weekends defeat to Ross County.I didnt see any reaction during the game against Ross County and I didnt see any reaction when they went 2-0 down tonight and I think you can ignore what the Celtic board are saying.This is now a call for Dermot Desmond. If he has got his finger on the pulse of the Celtic support, who continually booed the players at the end of the game, then he will realise hes got a big decision to make. Ronny Deila admits Celtics 2-1 defeat to Aberdeen puts pressure on him Do you trust Ronny Deila to come up with the type of results that will not only get Celtic the title but a bit of success in Europe?If it was up to me I would change the manager tomorrow.dddddddddddd.Deila has been under pressure all season following his teams early exit from the Champions League against Malmo.Desmond has previously backed his manager, claiming the team is better than they were last season, but Walker says performances are not good enough for a team that has a huge financial advantage over their domestic rivals. Aberdeen are now just three points behind Deilas side He added: Celtic have a huge advantage in terms of resources and everything you want.How did they defend tonight? The amount of long balls that were played when Celtic were 2-0 down and they didnt go and compete for them.I know thats not down to the manager but the manager has to make the kind of changes and type of signings that can get Celtic success on the park and all of that is up for serious debate. Celtic captain Scott Brown battles with Jonny Hayes on Wednesday night Its not good enough and Celtic could well go on and secure the title but would you trust this manager to get you the type of results the Celtic supporters are looking for?I think if you have got your finger on the pulse of the Celtic support I think there is a growing number who dont buy into what Ronny Deila is continually saying.Theres no improvement, theres nothing special and theres no notable victories and I think as a Celtic manager that is what you have to come up with.Also See:Match reportAs it happenedTableLive on Sky ' ' '
