James Madison commemorates big win with shirt

Posted by Tom Fornelli

It's beginning to feel a bit like fashion week here on the blog, as we've already covered the latest in college football fan fashion with the Chris Rainey shirt circulating in Knoxville, and the Sabanade shirt down in Alabama.  Now, we present to you, our latest effort from the folks of James Madison.

You may remember that the Dukes had a pretty big win over Virginia Tech last Saturday, and now they've come out with a new shirt to commemorate the biggest win in school history lest it escape your memory.

After a stunning 21-16 road victory over Virginia Tech last week, James Madison University fans can celebrate the memorable win by picking up a new T-shirt that has hit the interwebs.

The shirt, which is purple, has a turkey centered on it with the Virginia Tech logo on it. Under the turkey is the words 'Thanksgiving Came Early This Year.'

The back of the shirt has JMU's logo and the date and score of the game.

The shirt is selling so well right now that it's currently on back order, so if you haven't ordered one already, it's going to be a while.  Still, you should get the shirt before Christmas as I'm sure it'll make a great gift for the Hokies fan in your life.

Would not have guessed 0-2 start for VT

Posted by Chip Patterson

Virginia Tech had to deal with a heartbreaker less than a week ago against the third-ranked team in the nation.  But it was an perennial FCS favorite who likely put the Hokies out of the national championship race.  Coming into the season, Frank Beamer's squad had their eyes set on the title game in Glendale, but after James Madison's 21-16 upset victory over the Hokies, Virginia Tech (0-2) is out of the hunt.

It was a game that most of us had written off.  After all, Virginia Tech was favored by more than four touchdowns.  After scoring the first touchdown of the game, the James Madison defense held Virginia Tech out of the end zone for the rest of the game, just needing a pair of Drew Dudzik TD runs to seal the upset for the Dukes.

One person who wasn't surprised was James Madison head coach Mickey Matthews.  He figured the Dukes might have a chance with Virginia Tech only having only four days of practice to prepare for the game.  The game is Virginia Tech's second ever loss to an FCS squad, the first coming in 1985 against Richmond.
