Tribe versus Villanova in final four

w&Mlogo William and Mary (11-2) is in the final four of the Football Championship Subdivision (Div. 1-AA) playoffs. The Tribe travels north to face Villanova on Friday night at 8 p.m. The game will be telivised on  ESPN2 Friday night. ( channel 60 on Cox) Not only is a spot in the championship game on the line, but it’s a Colonial conference rivalry that has belonged to the Wildcats recently.

 

Coach Jimmy Laycock just became just the 13th coach at the FCS level to get to 200 wins. His career record is 200-140-2 makes him the winningest coach at a place where Marv Levy and Lou Holtz also roamed the sidelines.

It is just the second trip to the semifinals for the Tribe in Laycock’s 30 years as coach, and bears some similarities to the last one, in 2004. Then, they played Colonial Athletic Association rival James Madison, and Friday’s game is also against a CAA rival. The Tribe has never reached the FCS/Div. 1-AA national championship.

For Laycock, a win against Villanova would be just another step toward a larger goal. He delivered the message again in the locker room in Illinois.

After the team captains presented him with the game ball, the players were celebrating the milestone when Laycock interrupted them.

"You want to see me happy,” he said, "let’s get 202.”

That, of course, would mean a national championship.

Villanova or William and Mary, regardless of this Friday’s winner, will mark the fifth different CAA Football league team to compete in the National Championship game in the last seven seasons.  Delaware won the title in 2003 and played in the championship game in 2007, James Madison won the title in 2004, Massachusetts played in the championship game in 2006 and Richmond won the title in 2008.
