RE: FAU hosting US Naval Academy
OK, we know what to expect from Navy offensively - the triple option running attack with a very rare pass. it is going to be physical and unrelenting. Most experts do not believe that FAU has the front 4 or the linebacker corps to stop it. On FAU's offensive side, there is still a tight QB competition. De'Andre Johnson has not separated himself from baby Driskell, so these two will see a whole lot of time under the center. These two are as different as two QBs can be. They will have to be good because I do not think we can reliably stuff Navy's run. Can FAU's offense keep up with Navy's?

P.S. Apparently, less than 5000 tickets remain for this game

Great news on the ticket sales. Y'all have had all off-season to prepare for their offense. FAU should be pretty competitive in this game.

ticket sales should be pretty good starting out and hopefully you guys can win some early to keep ticket sales going. starting with a sellout crowd doesn't seem impossible.

Just watch out for the chop blocks and knee cutting. The media certainly won't be on your side if your players retaliate.

Should anyone really be on FAUs side at this point though?

His son is on the staff, so I do not know why this should bother anyone.

There is a big Navy population in Jacksonville Fl, where Navy played ND last year. I sure many will make the 4 1/2 hour trip to Boca.
