Winning against K-State
"You have to want it"
This is a young team (with a ton a talent we may never have seen around here before) whether fans want to acknowledge it or not. Before the season I was (and still) hoping that Driskel's learning curve would be short and the implementation of Trickett's offense would be quick. It doesn't look like that is happening. The state of the offensive line is a whole other matter. Moving guys around constantly doesn't bode well to continuity on the offense.
We competed against Miami, and we should compete against K-State. With a much better chance to win. But the reality is if we finish the first 4 games 2-2 then we are exactly where we should be. A win Saturday is a chance to say we are ahead of the curve.
Don't know how much national attention it would garner with them being down recently, but still a great win.
I believe the latest lines have FAU as a 22 point underdog.

It would be the biggest win in program history. Those don't come easily.
Went from "we should be competitive" to "we'll probably be blown out by K State".
I mean, every big team thinks they're going to steamroll us… that doesn't surprise me anymore. And we're coming off consecutive 3-8 seasons, given up 68 points so far, and could have lost to an FCS team at home.
I get it.
I just wish that this team would give these beat writers, sports bettors and fans more reason to pause. I mean, Miami is "facing a huge test in Appalachian State"? I wish they were saying things like that about us, especially after the UF game last year.
My issue is the fact this staff hasn't show they bring any advantage on gameday.
Yea we are talented, yea the players play hard for Charlie, but the fact is in 26 games under Charlie we have played maybe 1 complete well played game on both sides of the ball.
I see some good things happening with this staff ], but i'm worried they have a ceiling.
Great coaches have made more with way less then this team.
Local Owl said@Doc…this team hasn't done anything to give the writers a reason to use that angle. Other than UF last season. most teams cover the point spread. KSU's 22 is about right. I know everyone whats/hopes/prays that the football team does great. But a more realistic goal should be to get bowl eligible. Heck, that would mean we had twice the wins as last season. We will have that chance if at some point we are 2/2. If we miss the 2/2 mark, I will just sit here and enjoy reading the OC40 posts. Because he will be correct.Posted On: Sep 14th 2016, 6:00 AM
Same. I think we can all agree that Ball St. Is a must win

I agree with you, which is what's frustrating as a fan. Looking forward to being a team that bigger teams need to watch out for…
