Things That Make You Go…


Well that didn’t take long.

Of course, JMU would look to capitalize on their big win in Blacksburg last weekend. Not only was it a huge victory for a top notch Subdivision (D1AA) program, but it was historic as well – only the second time a Sub-1AA team has defeated a ranked D1 opponent.

So, even before the dust settles and the shouting dies down, JMU is auctioning off “memorabilia” from the big victory. To their credit, they are having a party to make it all more festive.

Here’s the release from

Get your piece of JMU history! The Signs USA Duke Club Auction is your opportunity to get one-of-a-kind memorabilia from JMU's historic 21-16 defeat of the Hokies. Included in the over 120 auction items are framed JMU/VA Tech celebration photos and a commemorative football with score and date. These items and more will be part of the silent auction with all proceeds going to the Duke Club.

We will never forget the Dukes' win in Blacksburg, but that does not mean you shouldn't bring a piece of history home with you. Call (540) 568-6461 or go to

The cost is $45 per couple (Duke Club Members) / $65 per (non-Duke Club members) and includes beer, wine and heavy hor d'oeuvres. Location: JMU Festival Grand Ballroom, When: Thursday, September 23, 6:30 pm.
