Another 4th Place Prediction for FAU...While...

Troy tops the list…followed by FIU…yes, FIU…….

Probably a subscriber to Graham Watson's blog…

Anyway, all the way from a Green Bay TV site!

"4) FLA ATLANTIC - After starting the season 1-5 (3-3 ATS), the Owls won six of their final seven (5-2 ATS) to earn their second straight bowl berth. They are 14-7 ATS in conference play but 5-11 ATS as an away underdog the last three years.

Offense - Rusty Smith opened last year with a 5-9 TD/INT ratio the first six games, but once his shoulder healed, he ran off 19-5 numbers over the final seven. The Owls ppg average improved to 33 in those seven contests after just 15 per game early on. Look for even more production in '09 with the return of TE Jason Harmon (63 receptions in '07), who redshirted last season.

Defense - The defense could be the great equalizer, one that might prevent Fla. Atlantic from winning the conference. The Owls lose their top six tacklers, and if DE Jermaine Council doesn't return from injury, the entire front seven brings back just 22 career starts.

Outlook - A mixed bag for Howard Schnellenberger's club: An offense that might not be stopped and a defense that might not impede anyone. (Playing the over in Owls games should be mandatory for all gamblers.) Fla Atlantic could be good enough to beat South Carolina and then lose to UAB later in the year. I'll call for a 6-6 season but 5-3 in the Sun Belt."

This is a joke.  We should lose 2 conference games at most this season…and IMO we will only lose 1.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

I love being picked 4th.  Whether someone picks us 1st or 4th is meaningless.  The only thing that matters is how we actually finish.

No advantage to being picked 1st other than summer bragging rights on message boards.

Look at the Gators.  If they do anything but win the NC, they are a national disappointment.  Not a great place to be.

FAU would be lucky, VERY lucky, to finish 4th.

...and BingoBango would be lucky, very lucky, if someone actually cared what he thinks.

Stick to what you know, which isn't the sunbelt

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

I could see two teams beating us out without reserve in Troy and ASU…but to throw FIU into the top 2 sports at this point in time is premature IMO…

They should be better…but that much better, no…

I agree with fauowl, it really doesn't matter what others predict we the Owls will finish it the heap of doing battle.

I would rather not have the top spot - gives us something to prove.

We tend to play better with a chip on our shoulders and with something to prove.

So, now we see where the Green Bay site got their "info" from…lol

Carbon copy of this Sportsbooks.com entry

Did find it a little odd they would have such in depth information…

Anyway, Jab, isn't this your betting site??

That is my betting site. I didn't even know they did reviews. I was actually on there last night trying to place some bets on the UFC fight

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
