"The Owls, part of the Sun Belt, are interesting. They are still very much in a building program: They lack a permanent home stadium, their fan base is being created at a mostly commuter school in Boca Raton, and their players are the first waves of Schnellenberger's grand recruiting scheme."

Didn't his "first waves" graduate in '04??


"You look at what they do and you can see they have some very talented, speedy players," Jones said. "They're a school in the right place, because there is some tremendous talent down there in the southern Florida area. They're disciplined. And you can see Coach Schnellenberger's system can work very well."


Being among the tops in the nation in 15 yard personal foul penalties.. I wouldn't call that discipline

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

I think the fouls are just zealotry and inexperience....they are pretty disciplined, we almost never hear bad things about the team or players getting kicked off and such.

Sorry but that one doesnt fly with me, This was our most EXPERIENCED team ever.

No way should they of let penalites snowball the way the did this year.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

During the Florida/Alabama game, they said UF came into it with over 90 penalties on the season. Looks like you have to play rough to get ahead sometimes.

We at least have that to be thankful for.  No Fulmer Cup points yet for us (knock on wood).

I think we need to look how the team played at the end of the season, sure the way most of us expected from the beginning, but what the heck better late then never.

If I remember correctly, last year we peaked at the right time, so lets see what happens in Detroit.

I have a bad feeling about it. Memphis could barely tie their own shoes meanwhile CMU has a QB nicknamed Tebow Lite.

I've been proved wrong a couple of times this season (vs MTSU, vs ULL) so I'm going to put my intuition on the side and hope for the best.

We are still peaking…finish the season 5-1 with a 2 huge morale boosters right at the end…I like our chances.

Memphis didn't roll over, it was close til the end, and they peaked at the end last year too.  We were lucky to play hard and knocked out two of their QBs (legally) and got some good things going our way like the blocked punt.

mmm, I will be watching on ESPN at like 5 am my time, I am planning my holiday travels around it!
