ESPN.Com Spring Preview

Florida Atlantic Owls
Spring practice starts: March 25
Spring game: April 18

What to watch

If there's one team that could take the Sun Belt title back from Troy it's FAU, which ended the season winning six of its last seven, including a Motor City Bowl win over Central Michigan. The Owls return nine players on offense, including quarterback Rusty Smith and top receivers Cortez Gent and Jamari Grant.
The spring will be spent retooling a defense that was in the middle of the pack in the Sun Belt, but one of the worst in the country. The Owls lose eight players off the defense, including Frantz Joseph, who was one of the team's stars.
Jeff Brohm joins the staff after spending the past five seasons working with quarterbacks and calling the offense at Louisville. Brohm knows coach Howard Schnellenberger's offense and is the perfect person to bring Smith and the rest of the FAU offense to its full potential.

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

Suprised they dont mention the impact of losing Pierre and Edgecomb on the offensive side.

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

Who is the projected starter at RB?  Stinson?  Not to be negative but I hope its not Blanchard, dont think he has the size/strenght to break tackles.

Blanchard, Morris and Floyd would probably get first consideration because they've done returns/special teams work. Next up would be Stinson and Barasch.

We'll know soon enough who improved in the off-season. Personally I like Blanchard, Stinson and Barasch (from seeing them in practice). Floyd and Morris haven't impressed me.
