Milestones Help Guage A Program's Success

SUN BELT

• Florida Atlantic had its first 1,000-yard rusher in school history last season in running back Charles Pierre. The Owls have had a player top all three milestones in the past two seasons. Pierre is the only one who will not be on the team next season. Senior quarterback Rusty Smith has topped 3,000-yards twice, and senior wide receiver Cortez Gent had 1,082 yards in 2007. Smith remains the only Sun Belt quarterback to reach the 3,000-yard mark in the BCS era.

Though Pierre rushed for 1000 yards last year, I think that Morris is a different type of back. Morris will be able to pick up that ever elusive 3rd down and 1 or 2 that Pierre couldn't last year. This will make Rusty even more of a threat when teams can't predict what's coming (Rusty passing the ball) and drop 8 into coverage. I predict that if Morris runs the ball in the fall as he did this past spring, that this will be the best offense the Sunbelt has seen in quite some time.
