2021 FAU Football Schedule

We just lost the best DC in the conference.

He didn't belong here - which is why he is gone.

The year before, we did the same (Spencer) and it was MIRACULOUS that we landed Leavitt - who immediately assumed the same role as C-USA Top D dog.

Can we do that again?

Third time is a charm, so we'll see, but my $ is on a slide.

(not being negative just realistic)

Go Owls!

No disagreement here. I think itís a realistic expectation at this point. The defense overachieved in 2020 in my opinion.†

Just looked at the 2021 schedule. I had to look up who GATA was . Why on earth would we post a teams moto as the name of the university. Odd.

It's an embedded tweet, and it's supposed to reach as many people as possible.

#GATA is a top hashtag on twitter.

The schedule image will be backfilled here in due time.

I see four ďif FAU fails to win these games, LOLĒ games: Fordham, FIU, UTEP, and ODU. (CUSA not keeping ODU in Boca when ODU sat out last season and skipped the trip to FAU is interesting. Should have just kept the 2020 trips for ODU).†

UF will be an embarrassing afternoon but at least itíll be a nice cash influx. The option teams could easily beat FAU. Marshall will be tricky although thatís here. UAB is a coin flip. FAU can beat MTSU. Unsure about UNCC and WKU. Iíd lean WKU.†

Right now, I think the ceiling is 7-5. I would like to be wrong and thereís plenty of time for me to be wrong. But Iím not expecting a fun year.†

We can beat uf. The stoshak & buddy game must have been before your time.

How can you possibly look at that schedule and say 7-5 is the ceiling is beyond me. The talent on our team alone beats 9 of those teams.

COVID is an excuse for the offense. New offense. No spring. New qbs who had no meaningful experience. Offensive line was shuffled around (to put it nicely) because of COVID, starting with the Marshall game.

Sometimes I wonder why our fans are so negative and down on our squad. Other G5ís and CUSA teams envy our talent level, last few seasons, and general potential for success.

I was a freshman for the UF game in 2015. Donít play the age card with me to insult me ó you wonít win.†

The ceiling is 7-5 because I am not confident in this offense. The best player (Davidson) canít stay healthy. McCammon has the potential to be very good, but he also has durability problems. The tight ends contributed nothing last year, and you replace the position coach there (Fairman) with the position coach in charge of a WR unit that couldnít catch anything in the final month. And you keep Mehringer as co-OC?

There is no offensive player I can point to besides James Charles and put a ✅ next to their name as ďdependableĒ or ďdynamic.Ē That first word is crucial. And donít list John Mitchell, both because of his injury history and drops. The last staff got so frustrated with JMís inconsistency near the end of Kiffinís final season.†

No one is playing an age card or insulting. You obviously didnít take it into consideration. That uf team was good. Our team was bad. We should have won. Could come out differently this time.

7-5 is our basement. This team lost nothing and we easily should have been better than our record this year.

Iím not sure why our fans are such pessimists. Could be the 2010-2016 we had to endure!

We got spoiled with Lane and now conference titles and a fringe Top 25 ranking is the standard as it should be. I would like to think that the 2021 season will begin and end with how well our QBs play and Iím inclined to say that both Tronti and Posey will come back improved. If Posey can be the guy he was against FIU just a little more consistently, we are in good shape and I believe he can be. While he is a totally different QB, we had frustrating times with Robison as well when he was a Freshman and he was also benched for an upperclassman in Jake Peavy. I think our D is still primed to be among the best in the G5. Our O-Line returns everyone as does most of our RBs with the addition of the dynamic Johnny Ford. The big question is going to be QB play and if we can get more out of the WRs/TEs this coming year. TJ Chase and John Mitchell might be good starting points but weíll see. Also hoping Wester takes a step forward instead of a step back like Willie Wright did after his Fr year. Speaking of which, I hope Willie returns heís a fan favorite and overall good kid!†

Fair enough on the age. I respectfully disagree about the basement for this team because I do not have enough proof that the offensive staff (outside of Norrid) can maximize the talent they have.†

Looking at which games I'd make, because who doesn't like planning 7-10 months ahead, and I'm not that far off from UAB or CLT (because CLT??), and I saw, FIU had been moved to some random conference opener slot, where Marshall is pushed into November, and I thought, yea, I get it.

I don't know how I feel about 7-5 in 2021. Depending on the split between NSD and the transfer portal, I'll have a better idea. Of course, then maybe I'll be worried about 2022…

I'm short, fat, bald(ing). I've got crooked teeth. I lack ambition. I've got no money. My partner of eight years is the opposite of those things. She's great. Which is to say, we can beat UF.

7-5 is the absolute floor, the 2021 class is not final yet and I suspect we take some impact players in the portal. And as pointed out in the pod Michael Johnson can absolutely coach the offense. Also its pretty evident we arent going to win games starting tronti or posey and MJJ without taking a single snap here yet is a major upgrade. We return almost all the seniors on the D plus add back keke and greene and we return the entire offensive line.†
