We beat Middle Tennessee State in 2004 on September 18 in Murfreesboro when FAU was a division 1AA school 27-20. It was not a conference game as we were not Division 1A yet.  Jared Allen was the QB. It was also the year we beat Hawaii and Coach June Jones who was coach of the Atlanta Falcons before going back to the college game.
the 2004 team was one of our better teams. We made the playoffs as an independent.. We were not in the Sun Belt conference yet.

One great thing about having Taggart here besides coaching ability and publicity which may have been part of us getting votes in the AP poll this week, is that heís got a lot on the line here at FAU. Thereís tens of millions of dollars at stake as far as getting back to the P5 and a decent job at that.†

I have complete confidence that he will bring in a transfer QB or 2 that can pass. Whether itís Posey or a transfer, there needs to be the threat of more than 100 yards passing.†

I am 100% CERTAIN that we wont be looking at the same situation next year, and this is spot on.

I think this is about the FSU thing again. The fact is Taggart if he succeeds here will be back in the P5 with a contract worth about 20 million somewhere.†

FSU fans canít look at things objectively and donít see itís the administration.†

Glad to hear that @rick I see recievers running wide open just need someone to hit them in stride.

That's why I removed that part of the post. But you have to admit the first part is quite a stretch.

I hope you're not insinuating I'm an FSU fan? Nothing could be further from the truth…..

Willie T is only succeeding here because of the talent on the defensive side of the ball, both Coaches and players. Otherwise, we're 2-4.
