Interestingly, Our QBs have very similar passing stats, actually the same yards. (stats courtesy of Yahoo Sports).

The difference is their QB runs it more.  As long as we know it, we know what to look for.  

We owe Buffalo after that debacle we had with them a couple of years ago.  It's on the road but, this will show how far and how quickly we have improved.  Owls roll.  I am ready and willing to drink the kool aid again.

The line is down to 2.5 for the Bulls…this should be a win. Our defense can do enough to keep them at bay, but not so sure they can do the same.

I hope you're right. I just can't get myself to reach that confidence level yet. I still have nightmares of the previous coaching staff when it comes to a game like this.

You still have nightmares from last the last coaching staff?  Would you like a hug or a glass of warm milk to settle your stomach?  Lets get a grip, you either believe we hired the right coach and he will correct this (win or lose this Saturday) or you don't.

If we can pull this one out, we should expect a bowl game come December.

I believed we hired the right coaches, and we have gotten progressively better so far this season. But it's not easy to turn around incompetence from the previous coaching staff 4 weeks into the new season. Mainly because it looks like buffalo is a quality Mac team.  

And I agree with Jack if we win this weekend. I would fully expect us to end up in a bowl game.

I'm not sure it is earned yet, but for some reason I have confidence. Weird feeling to have as a FAU fan. I am a fan of every coach on the staff. They are turning these kids around . Physically and mentally.

Gotta key on QB Jackson (60% of all plays he runs or throws) and WR Johnson (by FAR favorite and most dangerous target.. We stop or just contain them we win!

More to come tomorrow, but for now…
