Too Early for a Football Ranking Countdown?? FAU #104 on Orlando Sentinel's

Ok, our firends up in orlando got us confused with FIU on defense as far as coaching goes, and the schedule isn't right, but hey…at least we aren't lining the cellar…

Rankings were based on returning letterwinners, returning starters, 2010 performance, coaching staff changes, strength of schedule and strength of the conference.

Outlook: A brutal schedule doesn’t give FAU much wiggle room once it hits conference play. With no clearly defined starting quarterback and the departure of some key playmakers, it will be tough for FAU to post a winning season.

Full Preview

No. 104 Florida Atlantic
No. 105 Eastern Michigan
No. 106 Louisiana
No. 107 Rutgers
No. 108 Washington State
No. 109 Rice
No. 110 Bowling Green
No. 111 Tulane
No. 112 UNLV
No. 113: Buffalo
No. 114: New Mexico State
No. 115 Western Kentucky
No. 116 Akron
No. 117 North Texas
No. 118 Memphis
No. 119 New Mexico
No. 120 San Jose State

Other then the fact that they screwed up some basic info, I can't argue with the overall analysis.  I honestly have no idea what we will do this season.  If we find a QB and some recievers, we'll be OK, but those are HUGE if's.  I do think the D will continue to improve.  Hopefully, they'll be able to keep us in games.  Other then that, this season is mostly about the stadium and what comes next (i.e. Coach's future).  That said, winning 6-8 games would be nice too!

OUCH!!!

What happened to Rutgers? They had winning seasons from 2006 to 2009. They had a bad run late last seaon, but that doesn't drop them below #100 in my book.


GO OWLS!!!

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

I called Ted (they are a sister paper) and he said he would reach out to the author to fix it via e-mail…was quite amused at the "errors".

;D

I have no problem with 104. I hope it motivates our players to perform and prove themselves!
