20th in nation in yards per game and with WKU and FIU remaining, that number should go up considerably!

what pisses me off about this stat is why don't we just michigan state 08' and just run the ball. Keep our pathetic defense on the bench. Run the ball on 1st, 2nd and short 3rd downs. We have stinson for short yardage. In all my years following FAU football this is the first time I thought they were poorly coached.

Unfortunately our coaches want to play within their system. At the college level it makes sense to adjust the play calling based on the talent that is on the field even if this means breaking away from a coaching philosophy that calls for a balanced offense out of the pro set. Look at what Texas has done. When they had Ricky Williams they ran him into the ground. Then they get Vince Young and the offense shifts to highlight his abilities, now they have Colt McCoy and they throw five yard passes all day. The coaches are making adjustments to fit personnel and in every case they have been successful.

For FAU there is no reason to go heavy on the run other than to keep the defense off the field and for me that is reason enough. It is not that the passing game in ineffective, but if running the ball can limit the one glaring weakness that FAU has (the defense) then I say 'run Morris run.'

GO OWLS!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!
