It’s been a crazy season for my alma mater as the Dukes have come back from 21 down to beat Appalachian State, taken over the FCS’ No. 1 ranking and then returned a punt for a game-winner over Richmond. Now they’ve upped the insanity with this buzzer-beater at Villanova:
So they liked their chances of a Hail Mary over a 52-yard field goal? To paraphrase Dr. Saturday, JMU head coach Mickey Matthews must be crazy like a very crazy fox. That or his kicker stinks.
But still, ladies and gentlemen, your top-ranked JMU Dukes! Or, as JMU sports correspondent Rob Abbott calls them, the “Team of Destiny.” Forgive him. He’s probably going apeshit right about now. We all are.
Bonus: Fellow JMU alum Awful Announcing has more video and words.
