Final: JMU 34, Charlotte 49ers 7

HARRISONBURG, Va. -- James Madison's 16th-ranked Dukes wore down the Charlotte 49ers on the way to a 34-7 college football victory Saturday at Bridgeforth Stadium.

It was the second consecutive loss for the 49ers (2-2), who are in their first season of football. James Madison improved to 3-1.

The 49ers' next game is next Saturday at Presbyterian. James Madison is at Delaware.

James Madison was able to win easily, despite turning the ball over five times. The Dukes rolled to 522 yards in total offense, however and had the ball for nearly 35 minutes.

Despite taking an early 7-0 lead, the 49ers had trouble moving the ball for much of the game, gaining just 231 yards in total offense. Quarterback Matt Johnson led Charlotte in rushing with 51 yards on 21 carries and he completed 13 of 26 passes for 98 yards and an interception.

No shame in losing to a ranked team. You can only expect so much from a team made up almost entirely of freshmen.

I hate to say it but Lambert is losing control of this team, I don't think he is the guy to lead us to CUSA.

11:20,

What? We have played 4 games. We lost to a ranked team. We have 16 Freshmen starters. What did you expect?

Anonymous said...

what should you expect?? You should expect to just compete. You say you have a FB team but yet this game was over before the coin flip. You guys are just 1 step ahead of a JV high school team

I can hear the unc concord forty whiners now....well they are a good team and we are young, we should have lost.
Yes you should have lost, but not like that.

App State did not compete against Montana and needed late game heroics to even get close to beating NC A&T. Maybe they should just give up too.

ODU and UTSA have lost to teams much worse than JMU and NCCU in their first couple of seasons, and they are now both solid teams. There is reason that Freshmen do not start most places. Just like in high school you don't expect your JV to be as good as a Varsity team.

Dear Athletic Director,

As a 1999 grad of UNCC Grad School seriously you need to consider changing the sports name back to UNCC 49ers like it was before.

Talk about confusing not to mention embarrassing to see "Charlotte" only for scores?
No other school in America does this and it really looks amateurish to use a gimmick only as opposed to the actual UNCC name. You are making UNCC look bad and making Charlotte look stupid.

No one knows who the news stations are talking about when running scores at the bottom of the tv screen unless you know who the weird situation of the sports department.

It it narcissistic and egotistical to use the city name only when it is a UNC system school unless you put UNC as preface.

Change it back to UNCC 49ers or UNC Charlotte 49ers.

Dear Jake Gold

Fuck off.

I think Jake has a point, take a look around at all the other schools. They don't have this issue because they are who they are across the board. Judy's mullet headed attempt at using the city to help the school was immature at best. Even the Panthers play this game using Carolina, instead of Charlotte to try and include SC but in the end ask 8 out of ten fans of the NFL what city the Panthers play in and they could tell you. You lose your ID when you try to use more than one.

What a laugh. Giants trying to get rid of Manning intentionally losing games to chumps by not telling the OL not to block using roider SSmiths playbook when he intentionally got rid of Clawson by giving orders not to block and to extort 500 million more out of Richardson? SS intentionally dropped 50 passes to boot in 2010.

Looks like the NFL front office wanted RR to remain HC and ordered the Giants to lose.

NFL and WWE all the same sports entertainment rigged outcomes and need to return to McMahons XFL. The whole league SUX these days and with the class action lawsuit etc.

The late great game of American football lucky too survive 5 more yrs and will be banned. European style football (kick ball)only in America. No pads helmets or use of hands.

Giants 0-3. The qb retard came back to life one game acting like a new kindergartner. Total fluke. Riveras job saved temporarily. Short lived fantasy. Cut the crowing Disturber idiots. Redskins 0-3? Damn. Griffin another Newton bust ?

Get a better QB. Stop him from running the ball. There is some "senior" leadership on the team...let them lead. QB thinks entirely to much.

Giant players fake fall injuries on national TV

Giants bad about this and throwing games or not blocking for their Qb.

NFL front office in NYC runs the sports entertainment system entirely and call the shots.

WWE billionaire owner Vince McMahon and Pinehurst NC native rigged XFL who played OG for Moore County HS in the mid 60s before going on to NYC and daddys wraslin business, was bought out in 2003 after one season because of competition as he would have single handedly put the NFL out of business.

To be honest it looked like Giant QB Eli Manning and the Giant OL were in cahoots not to block and pretend to be tackled on Sunday.

Pretty hilarious to see those defensive "sacks" create such jubilation hysteria. Rare sight indeed.

The "sting" def worked and RR keeps his job as the NFL demanded although they tipped off JR & RR in advance a week ago & why he said he wasnt worried about his job.

To all the nay-sayers who were putting down the new football program since day one: too bad you had to wait until week three to start thrashing the Niners. I seem to recall several of you predicting such one-sided losses to Campbell and Chowan as well. As far as not wanting to distance and distinguish ourselves from UNC Chapel Hill, why not? Only a jealous Tarheel fan would want us to keep the "UNC" in our name. Case study: Coastal Carolina University in Conway used to be "USC-Coastal Carolina." Since dropping the USC and adding football, there is a much wider recognition of the program and the school. The same thing will happen here when we finally dump the "UNC" from our name altogether...the majority of Niner fans are sick to DEATH of hearing people outside of the Carolinas confusing us with Chapel Hill...

over matched in this one. D played well at times. Offense was terrible. QB can't throw downfield. All completed passes were 2-5 yards. They should give one of the backup QB's a shot.

Yes there are plenty. And there is only one idiot. He (MP ASU 2003) is a little pussy faggot without any friends that gets picked on by everyone with testicles since his daddy used to molest him he was little a boy. Deep inside he misses that 'loving feeling.'

UNCC vs. Charlotte. The issue is use your REAL name not some made up name. Coastal Carolina changed their name, so it is real. UNCC did not. They are using a fake name, which only illustrates the silliness of the program. And you are the idiot. Univ of Cinn and Univ of Pitt are their REAL names. Charlotte is not our real name. We are acting like pretenders. If you want to use Charlotte, then change the name for real.....not be a pretender.

Agree UNCC off track. Sodomite homo pedophiles are proven serial murderers cannibals throughout history. Orthodox muslims can be utilized to control the population of these type predator parasitic infestations since they have a zero percentile homo rates in islamic nations.
Flog torture them and throw them off a tall building or shoot,hang or burn them.
At least islamics get it right on something.

We have got to rid ourselves of Lambert, that is the second loss in a row. I cannot take it anymore, we should be blowing people out. All the fans I run into thought we would be better than this, we are Charlotte we have the best recruits, facilities, and are close to a major city, no reason we should be losing to these scum teams.

I think UNC-Chapel Hill should start using their real name and include the "-Chapel Hill" in the name of their sports teams. Until then, I am fine with being the "Charlotte 49ers".

unc concord is already a joke of a program. If they don't get it together what little fans they have now will jump ship. They probably already have jumped back to the primary team.
