We are loaded at both of these positions and I just want to know all of your predictions. Here are mine.
RB: Alfred ...duhhhh 2-deep: Willie Floyd 3-deep: ? Muniz, Barasch,
FB: Xavier Stinson 2-deep: ? 3-deep: ?
TE: Rob Housler ... duhhhh 2-deep: ? 3-deep...?
WR: Lester Jean..duhhh
WR: Avery Holley
3rd 4th and 5th off the bench I have no clue but we are loaded
Now you tell me what you think and if I am out of line than speak your mine!!!!!!
I have been on board with this team all the way back from our div-2 days (2002) and i really cant see any other RB,FB, TE and WR better than this corp.
The second spot on the TB depth chart is kind of a 2a/2b situation with Floyd and Jeff Blanchard.
No. 2 at FB looks to be David Muniz, who was one of the spring's pleasant surprises. Academics have been his issue lately. No. 3 is Chris Jackson, who looks awfully good at times.
TE No. 2 is Darian Williams and it wouldn't shock me if he's No. 1 at the end of the year. Rob Housler is good, Williams could be special. TE No. 3 is Nexon Dorvilus, who also looked strong in the spring and has a bright future.
Receiver is a bit of a mess. I think the No. 3 right now is Grant Glover, with DeAndre Richardson right there. No. 5 could be Byron Hankerson, or one of the receivers who the Owls just signed.
As far as best ever, still plenty to prove. Hard to argue that Morris isn't the best FAU back ever, and both Floyd and Blanchard have shown they can be productive when healthy.
Willie Rose is the benchmark for fullbacks. Could Stinson get there? Sure. Again, if all three are able to play, the depth is great. But entering the year, I'll take the Rose/Stinson combo from last year.
Similar feeling at tight end, where Harmon and Grant presented matchup nightmares. This group will be very good, though. They could make me change my mind.
Wide receiver is as confounding as it's been in a while. Is Holley the answer at No. 2? Glover at No. 3? I think best case scenario involves Richardson playing a major role.
The talent is there across all positions. Remember, though, none of these guys can really produce if that line doesn't come together.
FAU wins the SBC opener over WKU 5-4. Goes a long way to locking up an NCAA at-large bid.
Here are the final stats for the complete Conference regular season and a few comments. Feel free to add your own comments.
Our non-conference opponents must have had a good day yesterday. We pick up an RPI point and are now #32 according to Boyd's World.
Austin Gomber and Hugh Adams named All-Sun Belt. Pittman on the second team.

FAU didn't arrive in Lafayette until just before dawn. Don't think the Owls will mind never going there again.
