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.

NCU? North Carolina University? Northcentral University? I think you meant UNC lol

NCU is apt. They put the educational aspect last.

I don't trust the new Cogans. It's too respectable. It doesn't have the down-home charms of angry service and broom closet bathrooms that make the original what it is.

Counterpoint: spicy sauce and a better beer selection.

I know. It's their staple. And worth going to any location for*. $1 slices on Thursdays.

*Waterside not included since it's Cogans INO.

That does not sound like good news. My guess it is means that our receivers are not good enough to make the spread work. Or that Williams isn't, but I don't think that's the case.

I haven't heard Bobby say it, but the whole "spread offense" talk is really meaningless so I'm not sure what he's referring too. We run the spread and have always run the spread. Whether you run or pass out of the spread is meaningless in terms of what you call the offensive system. We are going to run 3 or 4 WRs and 0 or 1 TEs.

Indubitably, just seemed like you were using spicy sauce as a reason for Cogans North over Original Cogans.

I personally prefer original cogans, but then again I'm walking distance from there so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

And I think we can all agree that Cogans Waterside is #FakeNews

RE: FAU
A loss doesn't end our season and a win doesn't make it. It's a game between two reasonably close teams. I hope we have used the bye week to get healthy and I'm confident Williams has been working his butt off to be prepared for the start.

There are two things that will be interesting to watch and are the most important factors for the remaining games in the season; A) how we stop their run game and B)How well we run the game.

FAU has a pretty good CUSA running game, but the passing attack is not very potent at all. It is kind of reverse of our strength on defense. Hopefully, we can slow down the rushing game because they will not be able to move the ball through the air IF they are one dimensional. If they run well and we have to put more guys in the box, they will have a chance to move the ball.

On offense, there are a ton of question marks and hopefully the drop in competition shows our offense is better than it showed last week. There secondary will not be able to overpower us like the VT secondary was able to do. Williams will struggle at times, but I absolutely love what I've seen from him so far. His athletic ability will open up the running game some as well.

Im surprised they are favored over us but the books tend to be "what have you done for me lately" and people see FAU beat MTSU (even if they are a shell of normal selves).
