FAU DE Corey Henry says Alabama can be Beat

TUSCALOOSA, Alabama – Florida Atlantic might be a 50½-point underdog to top-ranked Alabama, but the Owls aren't coming Saturday to Bryant-Denny Stadium only with the hopes of covering that huge spread.

“They ain’t what people think,” FAU defensive end Cory Henry said, according to the Palm Beach Post. “They’re good and everything but they can beat, too. They just execute well. They just execute and beat you.”

So what is the Owls' edge?

“We got speed against them,” Henry said. “You got speed you can win.”

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

Re: FAU DE Corey Henry says Alabama can be Beat

As an Owls fan I appreciate the optimism, why go in there thinking you're going to get killed. I want the players believing they have a chance.

But, let's be real here. We're not going to beat the # 1 team in the country. Is it impossible? No. Just not very likely.

We may have speed but just like Henry said they execute well. For a team that just gave up over 700 yards to Georgia they're in no position to be talking about executing and how teams can be beat with speed. You want to beat Alabama? Here's an idea, stop them from scoring!

If we have speed, then Alabama is fast as lightning.

God Speed Owls!

I love this guy.  As a fan, I think every game is winnable, and I like my team to think it too.

I'm with you that our team should think this kind of thing
but
they shouldn't say it to the media.

If we're Oregon, it's one thing. But we're not Oregon. We're not even bowl-winning FAU, circa 2007. We're a one-win team in a rebuilding year.

It's just a stupid move all around. It's stupid when Cory Henry does it, it was stupid when Schnellenberger called Texas soft and it was stupid when what's-his-name told the press that the key to beating UF was hurting Tim Tebow so he'd be pulled from the game.

The REAL story, thankfully brought out by one of the few decent journalists left, as we all know Tom D'Angelo has an axe to grind against FAU and was happy to run with the garbage he printed yesterday.

Alabama can definitely be beat. Just not by you guys. No chance.

Thanks Team for posting the link to the truth. I feel bad for Henry. All people are going to see is his quote which was taken out of context. In fact, there's even an article in the NY Post about it. I'm glad he has a positive attitude and I'd rather him say yeah we have more speed than them then to say oh we're going to get killed. If you don't believe you can win, you never will
