Fearless Predictions 2019: Week 3 FAU @ Ball St

Post

Well La. Tech just got by Grambling St. (20-14) WHEN GSU HAD A 32-20 FD EDGE AND A 455-390 YARDS EDGE on Sat. and after getting blown out by Texas (14-45) the Sat prior so I am sure they have concerns!

And Marshall hung with Boise on the scoreboard (7-14) but BOISE HAD A 22-9 FD EDGE AND A 437-172 YARDS EDGE SO NOT REALLY CLOSE THERE EITHER!

CUSA is totally up for grabs this year with favorites like North Texas, UAB and FIU struggling big time too!

Thank GOD and GO OWLS!

Iím not going to lie, this past Saturday was probably the hardest loss to take. It might even have been more painful than 2005 Oklahoma state. The ol problems might just be Bc of tough competition. But I donít know if our receivers will struggle again. They did al last year against CUSA. Itís frudtrating watching the last 2 seasons Bc I think if we had a physical receiver we could win in CUSA. Without all that, 31-30 Fau.†

I don't think the receivers are a big problem. We do have a ton of freshman at that position but the unit is actually doing better than I expected. Harrison Bryant will be our devin singletary this season. Its obvious when our QB was running for his life every play that our OL needs a lot of help. You cant establish the running game or the passing game if OL is bad.

The pass protection was good enough I thought last year and the receivers couldnít get open then. Itís ok. We already should have known it would be like this. But Maybe some of these receivers will step up in conference play.†

Owls finally flex their muscles… this game starts the streak that propels us into a hot start in conference play

I just realized something. I'm a FAU  fan and have been for years. In the past , game day meant I would do whatever it took to watch the game. I was just invited to do something Saturday afternoon and I agreed. I will be at the Wagner game, but the excitement , at least for me, seems to be slipping.  I will simply check the ball state results later in the day and hope for the best.

Really can't say I blame ya, our "results" in the very winnable games are quite bad actually! 0-2 vs. Buffalo, 0-1 vs. Ball St., 0-2 vs. Wyoming, 0-1 vs. East Carolina, 1-1 vs. Tulsa, 1-0 vs. Tulane, 1-0 vs. Air Force.

So 3-7 over past 10 non Power 5 winnable games of teams not in CUSA anymore. What we would have considered as possibly sure wins actually with our "recruiting edge" of being in S. FL!!! Praying for the best tomorrow but not expecting much actually! We just don't exhibit the toughness of the "northern" teams and don't play 4 quarters of football and fall short far too many times!

But still DO want our Owls to win, toughen up, play hard, play smart and GO OWLS!!!!

The game Saturday was really tough and the way we lost set us back.  I get it and feel the same way.  

I am not quite yet where you are, but with the way we have played the last few weeks…I fully expect the program to have lost momentum and support.

Broken plays, inability to block, lack of skill players, operations at stadium, etc.

I hope we have the leadership to turn all of this around…but man, it feels we are on the brink of disaster.

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

It happens almost every year…play the body bag games and the fan base (for the most part) exits stage left…good thing is after next year we'll be seeing the talent later in the season.

But back to PREDICTIONS:

We're going to run the ball much better this week, and that will pay dividends in the 3rd and 4th periods.

34-27…

Owls

I would prefer we donít call the P5 games ďbody bagĒ games any more. There is no reason too. They are better athletes and faster. Thatís about it.†
They have just as many injuries as FAU during the game. There isnít much size difference if any.†
