Statistically Speaking's Sun Belt Recap for 2005-2009

The conference is celebrating it's 10th Anniversary of football and so is FAU, but the Owls have not been there that long obviously…

However, this write up does a good job showing where we fare against the rest of the league for just the last five years - which is somewhat relevant to us since we officially joined in 2006, but played a full schedule in 2005…of note is 58% win percentage in league games, and a positive point (+86) differential for the Owls.

Compare that to our Panther friends down in Miami, who don't fare nearly as well (28% and -289) and you may get a tickle in the belly…

And just look how far NT has fallen from the early years of dominance…yikes!

Check out the entire league over the last five years Here

Interesting read.

Thanks Rick.

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

What, the bulldozers clearing land for their new stadium?

Yeah, I just dont think they will stay at the bottom for too long.  They have a good coach, new stadium and a hot bed for recruiting (Dallas/Ft. Worth 20 minutes away and being in Texas in general).  Its also becoming more of a trendy school for recruits to go to.  A few winning seasons and they wont be considered a joke anymore.

They will have to get a new coach because that gimmick offense will never work at the college level...

I agree with you Rick, "DodgeBall" is a joke! Had to hire a new OC to save his job this year....not a good sign!

If gimmick offenses didnt work at the college level Urban Meyer would be out of a job.

We own 2 Bowl wins out of the league's 5 wins in the history of the Belt.  Impressive, considering we have only been there 5 years.

The inconsistency stats are just silly.  The top 3 teams are the most inconsistent.  Big deal.  The bottom teams are consistent because they are consistently bad.  Let's honor them with congrats on consistency.

How bout some full disclosure here Walty??? You're being a bit of a homer right now  ;)

It doesn't matter how good Dodge's system is if they don't get 5 wins and a close loss this year, he's out IMO
