Power of a winning football team

It was quite a day for James Madison University, despite the loss Saturday.
Record attendance at their stadium.
ESPN's College GameDay on the Quad.
Lee Corso make the pick as James Madison.
Hotels so packed, Richmond's team had to stay in Staunton.
Great pictures of the campus, and a great promotion of the university to potential future students.
All thanks to a good football team.
Two weeks ago, someone whined about the cost of college football as Maryland planned to fire its coach.
Millions of dollars that could have gone to academics being spent on a contract buyout.
The whiner ignored how much money sports can bring to a university community.
Especially a good program.
