Empty Sue has literally been decimated by injuries. The FAU result was not a surprise to many of their fans in the know. MTSU only had five of the original 11 offensive starters from week one.

FAU has a good offense, particularly on the ground, but our defense should be up to the task, at least for awhile.
FAU has two pretty good RBs in Singletary and Howell.
Returning to #1 on the depth chart, QB Jason Driskel is an efficient passer who can run when necessary.
6'1" DeAndre McNeal is the primary go-to WR and an effective weapon but our DBs should not be overmatched.
I do not like the matchup with the Owl TE, 6'5" Harrison Bryant. He is big and fast, and could overwhelm our LBs and overpower over our DBs.


The FAU defense is not particularly good; either against the pass or the run.
This will give us the opportunity to get a sense of where our offense is going.

As stated, we will need to generate some offense or our D will not last through four quarters.
Albany was shut out by Elon Saturday, and UMass' success vs UT was against what subsequently has shown itself to be a Vol squad in total disarray.

Compughter ratings has FAU beating us by 9.
I am not going to predict a score or outcome as I just have no idea at all.

07-coffee3
Our D is better than the stats. Our first two games were against Navy and UW who made the run stats look a little weird.
Against Buffalo we only allowed 3.6 yards a carry and 39 total running yards vs MTSU.
The design of the D is to force turnovers we play a lot of man with some really good young DB'S yards will come
and we have really talented young guys in the secondary and they can be overly aggressive and give up some third down play they should have just batted a ball.

Also feeling good I just booked a flight to the game and meeting some friends from school who are driving down from DC (we are all in the 26-30 range). We are excited to see what ODU has to offer on game day. You fans have been nice when ever they have come down here.

What should we do? where should we go? Good college bars? Anyone have tailgate maybe we can join (maybe with TV LOL) we will bring alcohol...

Just saw that it opened at 1 and moved to 3.5 2 hours later. Let's help the casinos make some $$$.

Considering Toast, Handsome Bisquit, Smalls and Croakers are all in Park Place, it's not the sarcastic recommendation it would have been five years ago. And that's without adding the great food trucks that go to O'Connors.

04-cheers I hope that you're at least going to North Colley. The new Cogans, Dirty Buffalo, LeGrand, Shiptown, Macks, Starving Artist and Chow are all worth a visit.

Bier Garden, Moseberths and Stove are fantastic. MoMac is awesome but not close to downtown PTown at all. Legend is a big letdown IMO.

If this is the case I'm going to be pissed off. Our run game is garbage. We'll waste a quarter trying to run the ball just like against NCU. We need to open the game throwing and use the passing game to open up the run game.
