YES!!

GREAT WIN!  I know…too many penalties…too many turnovers…but I don't care!  Rusty finally found himself on that last drive.  Housler decided to actually catch the ball late in the game.  Great play by the D in the second half.  We outscored them 29-7 after the 1st quarter. Most importantly they saved the season.  Great job Owls!  There are still issues, but they needed to win a game like this.

BTW…What was with the announcer's call of the game winning TD?  He was saying it was incomplete as the Owls were celebrating…I thought I was seeing things.  ::)

Re: YES!!

The announcer was just awful. Not only did he not see the play and confuse everyone watching, he kept calling FAU - FIU, even after he corrected himself.

Re: YES!!

I was confused too, the replay clearly showed a TD - the announcers were horrible all night.

The way the players fought back is a good sign that they have not given-up on the season.  Still way to many Personal Foul penalties, but man,  it good to win an ugly game.  There was every reason for us to lose this game by a ton of points, by heck - it's a win.

Go owls!!

Well no…but how about someone with eyes?!?  All I ask is for the guy to be able to see a play and make a correct call….and occasionally know what team is playing.

I am no professional broadcaster by any means, but i'm pretty sure if you put me in the booth, I can tell the difference between a TD and an incomplete pass.

The Miracle in Monroe!

Unreal! No one at Duffy's thought he caught it. We were all silent looking at the team like why are they celebrating when he didn't catch it, then they show the replay and he caught it. Unreal! If only Gent could catch the easy ones then maybe we'd be in better shape. I gotta tell you I was thinking why the hell not go for it on 4th down and goal. If we miss it we're down 8 but they have the ball on their 2. Guess that's why I'm not a coach. Warley was spot on tonight! This win should help their confidence A LOT! Can't wait to put a hurtin' on N. Texas

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

I agree. The kicking has been amazing. Talk about an impressive senior campaign.

The team came together in the second half, playing like the 2007 Owls. If we can play like that, even without turnovers, just catch the ball and not get hit by stupid penalties on nearly every down, we can win out the rest of our games.

I didn't see Gent catch it either. I did see them celebrating. At first I thought they were trying to give him s*** for missing it and then I realized they were celebrating.

I don't hold it against the announcer for missing the call. Did you see Ted's shot from the Press Box? It really is way too high off the field. The announcer kept calling us FIU yes but we're used to that. What was stupid was continually praising Rose by calling him a "football player." Yes, we know that. He's a football player. Call him a great football player. Try that.
