next year schedule

looking at the RPI for next year from mratings.com, which i think is the most accurate because it has the average of every rating out there, here's our competition for next year and this year.

this year
UF 10
usf 21
kentucky 26
ok state 35
minn 105

next year
texas 12
mich state 44
minn 105
uab 115

With the improvement of our team next year I think we can easily beat everyone but Texas. Our schedule was so much harder this year and we hung in there. With another year of depth and hitting the weight room again I hope to compete with Texas. There's no reason we can't put up 35 points in that game. There defense is losing a lot of players and wasn't even that good to begin with. Plus we play great against the pass which is the game Texas plays. Michigan State was so overrated in the Big Ten, i think we could've beat them this year. Minnesota and UAB should be easy W's by next year. I hope the defense can drastically improve and get healthy to keep us in these bigger games. We know the offense will but we need to improve against the run and pressure the QB for real.

Re: next year schedule

10-2 then? 11-1 with a loss to Texas only?  Anything with 9 wins or more is just fine by me.

Winning the SunBelt is all I care about, lets get back to that bowl game...even if its with 7 wins.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Michigan State was better than you are giving them credit for being. They played a great game in their bowl against Boston College and lost by 3 points to the runner-up in the ACC. Michigan State will not be a pushover next year. They will be at about the same level as Oklahoma State was for us this year. However, I think FAU will be much improved so we do have a shot at beating Michigan State. Minnesota is also winnable. The only "gimme" is UAB. Other than that the schedule it tough.

GO OWLS!!!

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

As long as we are looking ahead, how about the year after when Rusty is a senior?  Just fill in the empty slots with winnable games, and put us in the top 25.  ;D

Teams I'd like to see FAU play in '09 – win or lose – in no particular order:

UCF
FSU
Miami
Auburn
Vanderbilt
Alabama
West Virginia
Rutgers
Boston College
Notre Dame
Appalachian State



Just my two cents…
