Appalachian State vs. James Madison: What They Say
“We don’t get a free touchdown because GameDay is coming up. When I was a little kid, you went to 7-Eleven, bought a Slurpee and got one free. There are no giveaways here. We need to focus on what will impact performance between the white lines. Our guys did a good job and I expect us to do a good job this week. … It will be a big exposure for the football program. We are excited. It’ll be a five or 10 minute clip, but then it goes back to the mindset that you have to make good decisions on game day.” — JMU head coach Curt Cignetti.
“We have a great opportunity this week and over the last three weeks we have really cashed in on these games. Any time you can go away and play against a national team is huge. Add in College GameDay and the crowd is sold out, and we’re used to playing to sold-out crowds here at The Rock. I know our kids have blocked out all the noise and we’re very focused…When you’re chasing a conference championship, you have to be focused.” – App State head coach Shawn Clark.
