They aren't a physically tough team.  We'll put three hats on them, too, and they won't want to get up.  Maybe.

I want to put more than 10 points on them.

That is all.

Re: New talk

UAB is very athletic and very quick.  They are not fundamentally sound but after this Texas game can we really say we are?

Proceed with caution.

If our defense shows up we should win by 20+ against UAB. Rusty showed that he can move the ball and the O-line held up very well against Texas. One week from now we should be feeling a whole lot better about the prospects for this season.

GO OWLS!!!

Note: I said if they show up. Obviously they didn't even get on the plane for the Texas game. However, we still have to remember that these guys do have talent and experience. They have the tools, they just need use them. Something that I think will prove more feasible against UAB.


I don't think we can expect a lights out performance from the defense against UAB, but hopefully we can rip off 40+ points and hold UAB to 20 or so.

GO OWLS!!!

They played Tulsa and lost 45-22. However, UAB did have 245 yards rushing in that game. They also gave up 600+ yards in total offense to Tulsa.

Re: New talk

As a UT fan, I would not just judge your defense's performance based on that one game alone.  McCoy with a good O-line is a freaking surgeon.   That was the difference between his freshman and sophomore seasons, the entire o-line needed to be replaced, rebuilt, or suffered injuries.   I do not know if the O-line put it together or if your D-line fell apart.  Verdict is still out.

In spite of what ESPN tells you, and our own fans, Greg Davis is one of the top offensive coordinators in the country and has produced some prolific offenses.  You are the new kid on the block,  expect to get knocked around, but hold fast, you have the talent to recruit from down there, but you have your work cut out for you with UCF, USF, and UF exploiting the problems at FSU and Miami more and more.
