Kiffin announces Robison will "not be a part of team activities" for Spring
No one has said that we†
Local Owl saidOk. You guys have convinced me. From now on the most important thing is that our players have fun. And if fau gets recognized as a team that really has fun on the sideline , that is a tremendous goal. Besides, if we win , the other team loses. We shouldn't want to make others feel bad. Oc said it best . This is a rediculous subject. All I'm saying is celebrate AFTER you take care of business. I think anyone of any age can agree with that. I would be embarrassed if I had a job on a football team, and my coach was doing all he could to avoid using me , due to lack of confidence. Win some games and we will all dance.Posted On: Mar 22nd 2019, 6:23 PM
I we are trying to say is dancing on the sideline or whatever doesnít reflect how hard the player works or how much he cares.†
I get what youíre saying as I get fustrated with some player actions as well. Like nothing makes me more angry when a DB gets beat and a throw is off or the WR drops it and the DB gives the big incomplete hand single like he contributed to the stoping the play.
I got to these these 7on7 camps all the time and if an old school football guy saw them their head mjght exploded. I have seen every thing from an entire team surrounding a DB after getting beat, putting trash bags over players, pulling out cheese burgers and eating them to show up the guy across from you.
I also know how hard these kids work to hard perfect their craft and take 100ís of reps to get better. The pro wrestling like 7on7 circuit is why you see so many young QBís play and succeed in college football today. †
Kiffin had a quote in 17, about texting during the game and if we'd been losing (but we were winning)…
Equating one stupid thing to a generational gap is too, "GET OFF MY LAWN (and that's why we say millennial and not young-people)!"
You wanna know why we couldn't make thirty-something yard field goals? It's cause our kicker couldn't kick'm. I hope he's gotten better.
But you don't go from top ten (or whatever) in the nation, to top bottom (or whatever) in the nation because the kicker knows the Moon Walk (it's not the Moon Walk, shut-up). It's cause he ain't the next kicker for the Cleveland Browns.
This doesn't go here, I'm proving a point, Jose Mirabal, South Dade, Offensive Guard was at FAU. It goes into 2020 recruiting (and I know somebody already started a thread…sorry[but these g*d-damned kids on my lawn!]). But. Let's please, talk about football stuff.
You're great. Your parents were/are great. And your kids are great.
Plenty of talented guys, but we saw last year how the offense struggled particularly in the second half of games without a cool hand at QB.
of a drop off on RB. It helps that we return 3 starters on the OL.
faufan2017 saidI agree. I think we won't see too much

Bill Conelly did his FAU write up a couple of weeks ago and the stat that stuck out to me the most was FAU was 105th in "Stuff Rate" meaning we were stuffed at or behind the LOS a lot. Our running game was either all or nothing last year.
As many yards as we piled up, it becomes hard to score points when you 40-yard run then -2 and 1 leaving many third and longs for a young QB it also becomes hard for an offense to "go fast'' with so many negative plays.
I hope BJ Emmons power running can provide yardage just when we need to keep things going.
It was also pointed out to me that we became more of an outside zone running team last year opposed to inside in 2017. The reason for this was pretty simple, we missed Fernandez and Woods on the inside who we both powerful blockers.
faufan2017 saidI bet if our QB situation doesn't improve, Kiffin will experiment with some sort of triple option type offense. We signed a bunch of RBs this new class. I'm sure putting a few of them every play could make things interestingPosted On: Mar 24th 2019, 10:10 PM
I bet definitely not. Is the simple answer.
The more complicated is we kinda already do, but we are never going to line up in a wing formation and run it.
