Well we sure do suck.

After watching them in person this team is just flat.  Rusty had another bad game.  Stupid penalties and what not.  Just really bitter tonight.  Feel's like it could be another 6-6 or 5-7 type year.  Man do we need that OC stadium!

We need a lot more than a stadium! Another over hyped season!  Rusty better get it together or there will be no NFL for him!  Was Harmon getting double covered? Stupid penalties, stupid play calling & poor play!  0 & 3 and the Cowboys coming into town!

We do SUCK!  Get it together guys or we will be playing in the toilet bowl!!

I think the stadium will make a huge difference in all aspect of the program. Better recruits, true home games, etc.

Can't blame Rusty for everything…

Sure there were some errant throws, but overall, everyone shared in the demise:

Drops
Penalties

Re: Well we sure do suck.

Some very poor coaching decisions doomed this game. Going for it on fourth with 26 seconds or so left in the first half and ULM able to move quickly, was a big mistake. Three points to the War Hawks there.

Trying the onsides kick with 3:05 to play - another error that doomed FAU eventual, final field position. Rusty did not even have a chance to throw the "Hail Mary".

A team that can't hit "easy" field goals and extra points is doomed to fail. That simple.

My take in a nutshell - some typical early season FAU poor play, mixed with almost enough stellar plays to win the game, in spite of the errors.

Very disappointing outcome.

We might play the most boring defense on the planet! How many blitzes did you all count? Me? 0. Oh and our dbacks, giving up to a 10 yard cushion on EVERY play. I just don't get it, we're young, yes, but we're fast, why can't we count on our athletes?? It's not like this conservative play is keeping points off the board!

Very disappointing game.  Dropped passes and poor coaching.  Can someone explain why on earth you go for it on 4th and 10 with time running out in the half??  Why do you try a low precentage play like an on-side kick with 3 minutes to go??  The coaching staff has do look long and hard over their decision making.  Then you have dumb penalties like a roughing the kicker which was a 4 point swing.  Add that together with bland play calling on both offense and defense and you get a bad home loss.  They better get it together in a hurry because 6-6 won't cut it this season if they want to make a bowl game.

I agree, while the defense leaves much to be desired does anyone think that Howard being an offensive minded coach has left the defense neglected over the past few seasons?

Re: Well we sure do suck.

and there is not a number that is high enough to count the number of dropped passes... my god, how long has "the drops" been going on with this team now?

Re: Well we sure do suck.

We need the stadium, no denying that. This team has hit a plateau and we all know it. We can't beat BCS teams because we can't draw in anything better than unknown players who we flirt with briefly before saying, "Look around and call us if you can't find anything else!" then pretend like that's recruiting.

What happened today? The team sucked all around. Rusty made stupid passes, the receivers couldn't catch, we couldn't stop the pass… a nightmare and a bore-a-thon at the same time. The only four people that didn't disappoint were Jason Harmon, Alfred Morris, Michael Lockley and Marcus Bartels.

The team is better than this. Or at least I want to believe that. But after today, if you told me FAU was in the Bottom 10 I would believe you. I have zero confidence going into the Wyoming game. Sure, they'll tell our media guys the usual b.s. like, "We need to go back and learn to play football" and "We need to stop making these mistakes" but if you get to the point where you're saying these things after every game… well, you know where I'm going with this.
