    Default 7 JMU Players Suspended for FCS Title Game

    HARRISONBURG – The James Madison University football program has suspended seven players, according to the school’s athletic department.

    The suspensions occur as James Madison prepares to play for its second NCAA FCS championship. On Jan. 7, the Dukes face Youngstown State in Frisco, Texas.

    On Monday, JMU football coach Mike Houston said he would have no further comment and would not elaborate on the nature of the offenses that led to the suspensions.

    Troubling to see this many suspensions on both teams in the Championship this year.

    So cheating teams get to play for the Natty, including the one that beat us. I thought they seemed a bit strong and aggressive.

    So thy have 7 suspended. They said 2 didnt play and they named them. So I guess the other 5 did play even though they knew there were issues?

    Good to know that if either Youngstown or James Madison win the championship this year, their win will have a huge asterisk in my book. Sure, these players aren't playing in the championship...but they played in all the games that put them in this place. If I was a player of any team that was in the playoffs, I would be extremely angry.

    Well, we don't know what the suspensions are for yet. If they are for pot, no big deal in my book. If they are for PEDs, it's absolutely ridiculous the process allows them to play a game after being caught.

    I don't know about JMU, but I do know cheating is just business as usual for a championship Youngstown team.

    We don't know if the suspensions were due to PEDs though, do we?
