FAU could make an argument to be included in the CFB Playoffs
Taking a step forward in QB was the difference between 5 and in 11 wins in 2018 and 2019.
The GA Southern game is a prime example of that.
The yards were even, but we turned it over four times.
Just slightly better QB play, and that is a win.
FAU's returns 94 percent of last year's production. That alone is big, but it is a huge difference-maker when you factor in transfers like Ford, Mitchell, and more depth on the oline.
FAU also goes from a first-year OC to Micheal Johnson, who has years o experience in the NFL and college.
Also, look at the rest of the CUSA landscape.
What does Marshall have that would make them a favorite over us?
They lost their final three games by a score of 59-23
They lost three all-conference players in the draft.
They have also been one of the hardest-hit teams in the portal, losing two talented wideouts to Power 5 schools, their best safety to NC State, and best returning offensive lineman to Notre Dame.
Was Marshall even impressive beating us last year when Covid was crushing us?
UTSA is getting a lot go hype, but we beat them by three touchdowns and would not see them till a title game anyways.
WKU added all those FCS skill players but have also lost a lot in the portal.
Credit to our staff for keeping guys here.
I see many parallels from last year's to 2018; turned the ball over too much, struggled in short-yardage, could not get that one play to change a close game.
Perry is legit he has played and PERFORMED in games with the highest level of talent in college football. WKU can get all the hype they want, Iím not scared of a QB who put up video game numbers against FCS teams and the some of the worst defensive teams in the FBS.†
Bring on the Gators and GO OWLS!
THE WILLIE WAGON saidIf FAU goes 12-1 (with the only loss coming against UF) I THINK we could make an argument for reaching the CFB playoffs based on the idea that this article presents.
