I still cant believe that FAU has NO ONE in the NFL and that FIU has 3. Just unblieveable.

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

And FAU has how many Conference Titles?  And how many Bowl game victories?  And what is thier record versus FIU?

Sorry, had to say it! ;)

We'll get there. We've had a few guys that were in the NFL like Jared Allan and Laskowski. They weren't impact players but they played. Let's see how Cincere does if he gets drafted

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

I'd hardly consider Turnbull and Williams from FIU as being in the NFL. Williams hasn't played one game, while Turnbull played in three in '06 and is nothing more than a practice squad guy. I'd say Laz and Jared Allen have as much right to be on this list as they do.

But that just highlights it even more. Weve dominated FIU except in on campus stadium and yet none of our guys have gotten a look or managed to stick?

Just seems strange to me.

Just think of it this way, when we do have an NFL player he will be more than just a clipboard holder.

Re: SunBelt Players in the NFL Today

Interesting situation, and ironic as well, I can agree.  I'm sure some over at FIU could have different reasons as to why this anomaly has happened.  However, I can tell you Antwan Barnes is not a "clipboard holder" by any means…

Re: SunBelt Players in the NFL Today

Neither is DeMarcus Ware. But, my point was that most of them on the list are just clipboard holders.

Re: SunBelt Players in the NFL Today

Agree.  But I don't understand how it makes it a fact that when a player from FAU makes it into the NFL, it won't be as a clipboard holder, like ( and I agree with you here) most SBC players are right now.

Re: SunBelt Players in the NFL Today

When did I say it was a fact that FAU NFL player will be a star and not a clipboard holder?  I said "think of it this way".

It's called positive spin.  You should know all about that after the year you went through at FIU.
