Now that we have the whole schedule..

…its time for predictions on how we will do this season. I see us going 7-5 this coming season. While I hope for 12-0, I think 7-5 is a realistic goal that FAU can reach and maybe exceed. The breakdown-
1)at Hawaii=Big Loss-Hawaii's WR's way too much.
2)at N.Texas=Loss-
3)at M.Tenn.=close loss-they get revenge on us
4)Illinois St=Win-Home opener goes well
5)At Texas St=Win
6)at N.Colorado=Win
7)UL-Monroe=Win
8)at FAMU=Win
9)at Troy St=Close loss
10)N.Mexico St=Loss
11)FIU=FAU makes it three in a row over FIU
12)Edward Waters=Blowout Win

FAU sends it seniors out with two big wins to end the year!! :)

I will agree that a 7-5 record is very possible, however I look for us to pull an upset victory within the first three game of the season. ;D

the hawaii game will not be a blowout. with a lot of rainbow d being suspeneded look for a high scoring game. second of all chang's may be breaking records but he still doesn't show up time and time again. If the offense can put up seven to ten points a quarter its possible. N.Texas, did anyone see them play N. Mexico State in the last regular season game on the deuce? They were suspect. Middle tenn, yeah they want revenge….but is that attitude you want heading into a the biggest rematch in school history? 1AA was last year,. I'm not going to even comment. UL Monroe blows simple W. Troy state is a legit good competitor will see. N. Mexico is suspect too.

Heading into the season with four year starters at virtually position I forsee a much better then a 7-5 season and ATS you have to love FAU. Especially the over and the owls in the season opener.

I will be flying down from NY for the N Mexico game. This crowd better be there and be involved.

1)at Hawaii= high scoring and close
2at N.Texas=close
3)at M.Tenn.=owls by ten
7)UL-Monroe=Win by 24
8)at FAMU=Win
9)at Troy St=win
10)N.Mexico St=win by 12
11)FIU=FAU this isn't even a game

Welcome aboard NYowl :D


NYOwl, I wouldn't over look N. Mexico this year - this is a team that could prove to be a better team then people anticipate and could creat some problems with in the SBC - spoilers to some teams that over look them.

N. Colorado, we just got by them last year and are a very physical & big team - With a new coaching staff you just don't know.

Troy St. (Oops they dropped the St) - I hear that they will contend for the SBC title this year, I am not sold on the idea that they are all that yet.

MTSU - would be nice to bring home another victory here just to prove that we are ligitimate.

I will get a better feel for the season after the summer practices & final scrimmage game.

Interesting predictions. Mine: Owls could be as good as 9-3, probably won't be worse than 7-5. As mentioned above, I think a surprise win in the first three games is possible. Unfortunately, a later surprise the other way also is possible.

Tha late addition of Edward Waters, an NAIA school, certainly caught my attention. Did you see Edward Waters' full schedule (from its web site)? The school plays Elizabeth City State University, Shaw University, Huntingdon College, Webber International University, Clarke-Atlanta University, Allen University, Stillman College, Lane College, Barber-Scotia College, Lincoln University and, ta-da, FAU.

Get ready for some rude remarks about this one…

is eddy webb going to screw us with attendance figures? will they not count that for the 15k average? will howard win another national championship?

Not by playing teams like Edward Waters…I really think they should have stuck with four home games, not only for attendance reasons (dont forsee a big draw, especially over Thanksgiving weekend) but also because I dont know of a 1A school that has played an NAIA school since the reclassification of some major football programs in the early 80's…And I would hate to see the press if Edward Waters were to pull off a highly unlikely upset.

You think the Siena game was bad. I played against a few NAIA schools back in the day and they are just a step above DIII teams…At least it should be a fun day for the Owls.

The Edward Waters game will be a great way to get the future owl player a little action, even if the our scout team has more talent then Waters - something about live action is good expirence.

Scheduling this game as our last game and it being our 12th game, shouldn't really matter how bad they are - Our season will be judged on the 11-games prior, althought it could hurt our schedule strenght, but then who cares with us being in a transitions year, no bowl game, no playoff are at stakes, so we have nothing to lose scheduling this game.

One good thing about the game, much like the Siena game, I won't lose my voice ;D

Bytor is correct. The 12th game vs. Edward Waters really doesn't hurt the Owls, provided they win big. They are in this strange never-never land between I-AA and I-A, not eligible for post season in either. This should be an excellent chance for the QB of the future, as well as other players of the future, to get game experience. All those seniors will be gone next year and the second tier – those who haven't already played their way into starting roles – need some game time.

Nonetheless, expect some barbs from the FIU crowd and others.

If they market it as seeing our owls run up the score... I think several people would go just to see FAU dominate. That should offset the lack of an Edwards Waters draw.
