James Madison Dukes Season Prediction, What Will Happen
Really? Just how much noise can James Madison make right away?
Oh yeah, dominating the FCS world was fun and all, but it’s going to be a weekly fight through the Sun Belt and the FBS schedule to get into the mix for a winning season.
There’s a whole lot of talent coming back, the coaching staff is great, and the program will have the right attitude to be ready to handle the pressure.
Set The James Madison Dukes Regular Season Win Total At … 6
The Dukes should be strong enough – and fired up enough – to get by Middle Tennessee out of the gate, and taking down Norfolk State should be enough for a 2-0 start. However …
Road games at Appalachian State, Arkansas State, Georgia Southern, and Louisville will all be tough – JMU, though, should be able to at least win one, maybe two.
Marshall, Georgia State, and Coastal Carolina are hardly sure-thing home wins, but …
Add Texas State to the win pile, going to Old Dominion is at least a 50/50 game, and there will be at least one great upset along the way.
Sheepishly set the win bar at 6, and don’t be shocked if that’s ridiculously low if and when James Madison carries over all the success.
