Gearing up for the Spartans

Always nice to start the season with a win….great confidence booster.

The defense did show improvements from last year, yet we still allowed 370 rushing yards and a scrambling QB continues to gives us fits.  :-[

We will have to improve on third down conversion - only 3 of 12.

Michigan State is a much better team then the Blazers, so what will the Owls have to do to have a shot against the Spartans?

Control the ball on offense and limit the big plays on defense. MSU has the explosiveness at RB to make it a very long day for FAU.

GO OWLS!!!

Well, establish the run early…Jean was 1 on 1 because UAB blitzed almost every play M-State won't do that and will still get pressure on the QB so the run is vital.

on Defense we gotta stop the run and get pressure on the QB

Stop the run, and have confidence in our dbs to cover. Contain, contain, contain. Let JVC and "Old School" do what they do. Don't get so amped to go to Jean right away. Be patient in the passing game. JVC has shown he can make it happen when the moment presents itself. O-line be stout!  :)

Beware the talons of the Mighty Owls!

Re: Gearing up for the Spartans

Michigan State finally has a sweet team for the first time since 99.  Our defense is still suspect with 2 below average safeties, but the DL has improved to average and the LBs are Greg Jonesish.

The offense was potent last year, but inconsistent because we couldn't run the ball, which is MSU's bread and butter.  The OL is improved enough to the point where MSU can legitimately control the TOP, but not quite as dominant as a Wisconsin or Ohio State OL.

Our FG kicker(s) are a question mark.  Great punter.  Great coach.  Spartans will win 8 games this year.

Good luck!

Good summation of what MSU brings to the game. I think line play will have a lot to do with this game. Can the FAU offensive line protect JVC and get a push for Morris and can the FAU defensive line slow the run of MSU?? We will find out on Saturday.

GO OWLS!!!

Re: Gearing up for the Spartans

What I'm hoping for is just a decent showing with no bonehead mistakes such as personal fouls and bad turnovers. I do think we get blasted like we usually do by BCS teams. Hopefully since we won't be playing against a mobile QB and more of a pro style offense, our D will play better.

Start going to church! I don't see our O line being able to hang with MSU. I think we'll score some points but not as many as the other guys. Let's get out kftbis game healthy!
