2019 SEASON OPENER THREAD: FAU @ #5 Ohio State - August 31st
What is important are CUSA games - and I think looking past the first quarter today the Owls showed they have the talent and have grown to be a very dangerous team. †And check the posts - it didn't play out like I predicted, but I think a few of us correctly picked the exact score at 45-21 :-)
1.) Defense didnt quit. despite allowing big plays in the first quarter, they tigten up and made stops and forced a turn over from what I saw, though there may be more. Expecting them to build on this.
2.) Offense under Robinson minus their performance at the start performed better. I will echo the statements of everyone previously. More mature Robinson could pay dividens for us. Feel so sorry for Emmons. I was hoping to see him play, and hopefully we can get him a medical redshirt.
3.) Special teams is a vast improvement over last year. Rivas making those field goals and extra points were huge for us. last year when he came in it was a 50-50 crap shoot with him. Punting game if our punter can do the same thing next week as he did this week by flipping the field, it will pay dividens for us.
There are things to work for next weeks game is obvivous but there is a lot to build on from today's game. So trust the process and trust the staff and lets get ready for the Knigths of UCF. GO OWLS!
