They are young - very young…
32 Upper classmen 31%
70 Lower classmen 69%
We carry 20 more on the official roster, but the weighting is still substantially older in comparison:
66 Upper classmen 54%
56 Lower classmen 46%
Additionally, our roster has 29-11 edge in the SR or better longevity classification.
But forget all that Owls players and Coaches - prepare and play HARD!!!
GeorgiaOwl saidVery true Rick, good work! That AND their Coaching is a huge drop-off finally! THAT does not help them at all!

We need to win this one convincingly if we are really going to get on a roll here to close out the season. I hear Kiffin is thinking about employing a 2 qb system but I hope by that he means DJ will start and dominate then once we’re up 30-3, go to Robison
On preparing for FAU's offense
"You can’t tackle [Devin Singletary] single-handedly, he’s not a guy who one defender in open space is going to be
able to get him down. You can see they’ve gone through different phases offensively this year, I watch FAU’s offense
almost every week. We watch them and study them, and they’ve gone through different waves. Chris Robinson is a
very capable and talented quarterback, there have been games where he throws the ball upwards of 30 times, then
there are games like the last one where he threw 10 times and they ran the ball for 400-plus. You can tell that’s kind of their rhythm right now, they want to get the ball in Singletary’s hands and Kerrith Whyte’s hands. Bottom line is you have to get more than one defender to the point of contact and you have to wrap up because you’re not going to be able to tackle him consistently in open space. So that’s the game plan, be on point with our run fits."
I should be set up after 1pm in the Palm Beach State parking lot if anyone is in the area and wants to stop by.
