FAU gets a…..


B-

Six FBS teams had A+ seasons

Based on the kind of season we had I'd say that is fair. Winning one of those close games might have put us at a B. But then again we did double the number of wins from the previous season.

Yeah I also think this is fair. We dropped too many games to get a higher rating than even a B, to say nothing about B+.

I said at the beginning that 4-5 wins was going to be about right with bowl eligibility being a great season.

Thats worth about a B.

Not bad and it really does not matter but 7-6 Tulane got an A even though we dominated them here? I fully expect 8-4 or better next year guys!

IMHO, we exceeded expectations (which is what grading is all about) even with the miscues that prevented post season play.

Unfortunately those who write these things only look at the final number in a general sense when compared to the relative norm.

Assigned mark removed, if it were guaranteed that FAU would be 6-6 come 2013's close prior to the onset of play, believe that everyone who calls themselves an Owl would have been doing this:

2 Florida schools in the F spot and we were not one of them….I'd say that was an accomplishment in itself

+1 I didn't even look at it…these guys do NOT know the story behind the season, the improvement from 2011 and the turmoil at the end of the season.   This was an A+.

Yup for sure! WE finished strong and game wise would have been a much better bowl team pick for CUSA than Tulane or Rice.
But with Tulane movin on up to the ACC, best of luck to them. I think they are gonna get squashed like a bug, they definately have a QB problem and lose their RB and WR stars.

Agreed but they are moving to the AAC which I don't believe will be much if any better than CUSA next year.

GO OWLS!
