Owl time won't be bowl time this season

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - Florida Atlantic is still technically alive in a quest to become bowl eligible and lobby some sad sack bowl game to take the Owls because of their exciting brand of football.

Well, what has been on display lately from the Owls is exciting if you like offensive shootouts, because it is apparent the FAU defense will have a hard time stopping anyone - even a mid-level team in a mid-level conference like UAB.

But this bowl talk will all be moot soon. Not that the Owls can't beat Arkansas State next week or Western Kentucky, but I can't see the Owls defeating Troy and, to be honest, the FIU game doesn't seem like a gimmie either.

There are simply too many problems to be addressed - and just about all of them are on a certain side of the ball whose job it is to at least make teams work for touchdowns.
