Spiders suffer second-straight loss, fall 31-7 to JMU

HARRISONBURG, Va.-- The Richmond offense generated a season-low 118 total net yards, and the University of Richmond lost its second-straight game to a conference opponent, 31-7, to James Madison University. The game, played Saturday afternoon at Bridgeforth Stadium, served as the Dukes' Homecoming game, and the home team likely pleased the sell-out crowd. Richmond quarterback Aaron Corp was sacked seven times, and the offense as a whole was only able to pick up eight first downs. "We didn't execute well enough especially on the offensive side of the ball to win the game," Richmond interim coach Wayne Lineburg said. On defense, after shutting out the Dukes through the first quarter, the Spiders allowed almost 300 yards rushing despite JMU's star tailback, Dae'Quan Scott, suffering shoulder injury early in the second quarter. "To cut off their running attack, we just needed to execute the schemes a little better," Richmond linebacker Darius McMillan said.

But Saturday's 45-43 loss against the University of New Hampshire, Richmond's season-long issues finally proved to be too much. The problems that hurt Richmond throughout the year -- interceptions, fumbles and a depleted defense -- all presented themselves.

With that said, let's go over the positives, negatives and down-right brutal from Richmond's now-finished out-of-conference schedule. The positives: ? Any mention of what has gone right so far this year has to start with Richmond's win at Duke to start the season.

Dress Up. Dress down. It's football.

Richmond's first home football game of the season is Saturday. What do you plan on wearing? Will you dress up in pearls and a sundress or pinstripe shorts and Ray-bans? Or will you show your school spirit in a red and blue ensemble with a temporary spider tattoo emblazoned on your cheek? If you're like me, and grew up in the South, you'll probably wear something nicer to Saturday's football game than you've worn all school year.
