FAU's Predicted 20-point loss to Kansas

http://tbeck.freeshell.org/fb/predncaa.html

Just came upon this site which takes averages of different systems for calculating the point-spread on upcoming games - gotta keep an eye on these boards just to see how close these predictions come to the real outcomes.

Kansas - Florida Atlantic 20.00 . . 12.77 1.19 8.50 13.51

Of course, this is a prediction and one that we all can hope is way off. Hopefully, it will at least be a much closer game - win or lose. :-/

We've had a few ugly losses which sticks out for me. The USF,Valdosta State and UCONN games. Our defense and coaches has learned from each one.

I really don't see the 2005 defense losing by 20 pts. That's a wide margin.

USA Today has us as 19-point underdogs. I think our defense should be able to compete…it's the offense I'm worried about. I say we need to score at 14 points to have a chance of covering.

………i'm just hoping everyone is healthy come game time, with all of these injuries I could see a 20 point margin……

"Sore Loser?!?! Tell you what, show me a Good Loser and I'll SHOW you a LOSER!!!"

The bigger the point spread the more they overlook us and the more coach can use it as motivation. :)

Mangino is NOT overlooking the Owls. By the time September 3rd rolls around, I am quite confident the Jayhawk defense will be ready to hit a real opponent. As for the KU offense, I'm anxious to see what we can do, as the local pundits all seem to be sipping from the same well: KU's offense will be what holds the Hawks back this year. I don't subscribe to that theory, as our "O" looked very much improved the final two games of last year, against Texas and Missouri. barmann will be just fine at the controls. Less than 3 weeks folks!

Our offense is also our "hidden weapon".. ;D Hopefully we can get some points early and let the defense play through. Otherwise it may be a long day. I really don't see the new OC keeping most of Sieple's offensive calls and philosophy either.. :-/
Coach Schnelly have to turn him loose.

It's almost here!!!!

I'm excited like a little school girl! Despite our general "underdogedness" in this game, I still can't wait to see (or I guess hear ;D ) what the boys can do. It is definitely going to be a trial by fire for the freshmen.

I can't wait either!

But won't the game be on ESPN Gameplan because it's being broadcast on their network?

Nothing gets me going more than being the fan of the underdog!!!

I'm not predicting anything wild, I'm grounded and realistic about our season, especially with the injuries , but I expect our boys to pull some upsets and be more than competitive to open some people's eyes.

The season is so close yet so far. I can't wait for the start of the season…
