Notre Dame, USF's opponent last Saturday, cancelled practice today due to positive COVID-19 tests. Just something to keep an eye on….

They put out a message that the impact players did not participate in the USF game. I don't have the exact Tweet though…

Revolution- n. A large amount of change in a short amount of time. † FAU- n. The place where tomorrow begins.

I am glad we are he but donít like the line for this game. Fau are -3 favs with o/u 49. I can see the line going to -2.5. †This game can get ugly fast I can see us winning 31-14. †It will be an emotional game in both sides. Do you think granted we play we win this game?

USF is conducting contact tracing from Saturday's game anyways. The Bulls had a round of testing yesterday, with all negatives.

Back here in Boca, there has been no increase in positives since Friday's round of testing. The team testes Sunday, with no new positives. The team tested again, with result coming in tomorrow.

It's weird seeing the line go down so fast again. There hasn't been a lot of national confidence in this team dating back to before this Summer. Although Vegas still has FAU listed with one of the highest odds to win the conference, the people and their money keep moving our lines in the other direction.

Wow, really cool factoid given to us from FAU Football:

USF was a program that FAUís inaugural head coach, Howard Schnellenberger, mimicked as he began the process of building a football program in Paradise. Schnellenberger traveled across the state 20 years ago to meet with then-Bullsí inaugural head coach Jim Leavitt, who is now FAUís defensive coordinator.

Do any of the OG finals remember anything about this? And it all came full circle with that thriller at Lockhart in 2007.

Been there from the beginning but trying to remember exactly. Was that the game of the Harmon Leap.

2007 was the best environment Iíd ever seen at Lockhart, it topped 2003 IMO.

But the ties to Leavitt and our desire to mimic their program led us there in 2002 to play the Bulls. Poor Jared Allen is still speaking with a stutter after that one. That was a clear sign that our o-line and their d-line were at different levels, guy never had a chance (remember Howard kept our QB under center) heíd drop back, and get smoked. I canít remember if it was Andy Rosas punting but our punter was knocked out of the game from a hit too. Rained a ton, $18 beers, great memories.†

We owe them a few beatings after some of those years.†
