Hope for the Hopeless

As unlikely as it appears, it is still mathematically possible for us to claim the SBC title.

CURRENT SBC STANDINGS:
Troy:  6-0
MTSU: 4-1
ULM:  4-1
ULL:    3-2
FAU:  2-2
FIU:    2-4
ASU:  1-3
NT:    1-5
WKU:  0-5

BEST CASE SCENARIO:
FAU:   6-2
Troy: 6-2
MTSU:  5-3
ULM:   5-3
ULL:   5-3
ASU:   4-4
FIU:   3-5
NT:     1-7
WKU:   1-7

Thanks for your work. I admire one thinks positive. But I'm not going there yet. Actually, I'm still shaking my head. I can't remember a defensive performance like this in all the games I have seen in person or on TV. Live and learn, I guess.

If our defense could hold opponents to 28 or less I would feel good about the possibility of such a scenario, but they can't so I don't.

GO OWLS!!!

Even the Patriot's shouldn't be able to go 8 for 8 in possessions for TD's. That was a joke and an insult to JVC to make him think that he had to play perfect in his first start, let alone EVER! Whatever progress was made by the D in the first 3 qtrs. vs. MTSU have been blown away in the last 5 qtrs. of play, if you can even dream to call it that.
Let the major surgery begin today, axes are falling and they need to here or we won't need to build an on-campus stadium, nobody will want to watch this sh..!

plus it's not only in our hands, hoping troy loses one besides us, and MT & ULM to lose 2 both, that is a tall order, but the tallest order is for FAU to win the 4 straight… DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!!!!

Defense wins championships and in our case defense can't even help us to win games.

Re: Hope for the Hopeless

As of today, FAU still has a shot at the SBC title, and until it is no longer mathematically possible for us to win it, we should all believe the team still has a chance.

**Here is how this weekend (11/14) needs to play out for FAU to remain in contention for the SBC title:
Must Wins:
  • [li]Arkansas State at Florida Atlantic — FAU wins[/li]
    [li]Western Kentucky at Louisiana-Monroe — WKU wins[/li]
    [li]Louisiana-Lafayette at Middle Tennessee State — ULL wins[/li]

Doesn't Matter:
  • [li]Troy at Arkansas — Troy or Ark. wins[/li]
    [li]North Texas at Florida International — FIU or NT wins[/li]

NOT AT ALL ! The over play of Frantz Joseph and company and the under development of this years players and future players is the reason FAU's defense is a mess right now!!
