His last official game before this month was at the STU...
In his 2nd VHSL championship, each for different area schools...

Yes, I was there. With Nelson and Roosevelt Wheeler the headliners, along with a very young Dennis Parker, JM trounced Gate City in the 2A championship game. It was the last game played in the state tournament due to the global pandemic.

Doesn’t make sense to me. Wins over non-D1 schools don’t calculate into the NET or KP either.
Yeah, it means even less nowadays since most of the metrics exclude them. Torvik does factor in stats generated by those games (against an opponent with a rank of 0) but I think that’s the only one and I doubt a school would want to pay Southeast Penntucky Tech $50,000 just to look a little better on Torvik.

It might actually make a lot of sense when you think about it. If you have to choose between a Q4 home opponent or a non-D1 NAIA home opponent, which it better for your metrics? The Q4 opponent doesn’t really help and could potentially hurt your NET if there’s an upset. The non-D1 team is still a home game that brings in revenue and allows your players to pump up their stats and for your bench to get some run. I doubt most fans know the difference between Kennesaw Sate and an NAIA program if they’re both on the schedule. Attendance would probably be just about the same.

Watched a little of Jacksonville v Campbell. While J-Ville was thumping them pretty badly score-wise (64-43) they are not good, even by the standards of our play this season to date.

It was also 2A and JM had D1 players on their roster.
