"And I thought our depth in the defensive line paid huge dividends in the second half because we were much fresher. And once again, I think the scheduling really hurt them. You can’t make light of that, I thought it was a huge factor in the game. I thought their kids weren’t mentally sharp in the second half, and that’s what usually happens. In the first quarter, you can fake it for awhile. I thought they really were not as sharp mentally or physically in the second half.”
-- James Madison University head coach Mickey Matthews on the impact of the Hokies short work week after playing #3 Boise State on Labor Day.
NORTHERN HAITI HOPE FOUNDATION: After our recent trip to Haiti, we vowed to do more to help. Clean water is a critical issue for all Haitians. It's particularly problematic for those in rural areas. For $2,000 to $5,000 we can build a new well in a rural village as part of a program facilitated by the St. Barthelemy School and the Warrenton, VA Rotary. Send your donation to Wells of Health and Hope, c/o GPetty-VTA, 38 Garrett Street, Warrenton, VA 20186 and keep your eye on T.A.H. for progress reports. Thanks! CLICK ON THE PHOTO FOR MORE INFO.
