    Listening to a Florida Atlantic beat writer yesterday afternoon on 1530 say that the starting center, tight end and defensive end are all out of Saturday's game. The paper this morning mentions a guard too that may be out.

    Not good if you are a FAU fan.

    Well, it is looking more and more like Howie's mouth has written a check that his *** will not be able to cash on Saturday. He will find out how "soft" Texas really is.

    A returning starter, DT John Mertilus, has been lost to academics. All three of the injuried players are seniors..

    Dammit! I hate it when stuff like this happens. Now all the FAU folks are going to have a built in excuse if we somehow manage to eke out a victory. [​IMG]

    They went to a team building night with Coach Schnellenberger and pulled their livers.

    look at the size of the olinemen and the replacements... we are talking a handful of 250 lb'rs.

    Orakpo and Melton should have a field day with these undersized tackles and a pocket passer.

    C Nick Paris
    TE Jason Harmon
    DE Robert St.Clair

    LG Kevin Miller - injured 10 days ago and it was reported last wk he was doubtful for the UT game. If he plays, he won't be close to 100%

    WLB Andre Clark - reported last wk to also be questionable for UT game due to problems w/ knee rehab)

    FAU will not be 100%, but it won't matter if you ask Schnelly

    I feel it, Horns are going to kick their ***!

    I would still go with the under at 24 points. I just don't see Texas winning by more than 3 touchdowns...

    Schnelly better get good & schnockered before the game. Who wants to put money on it that we see him bouncing thru the tailgating that afternoon?

    hmmm.. hope it's not a "ploy" like aggy did once, we thought a certain QB would be out and we did'nt expect him in and were taken a bit by surprise to see him start.

    Bevoette - where have you been? I know you haven't been hangin out at the Chicken. Good point about aggy, however I don't think that FAU is up to anything... just some untimely injuries. Expect a beatdown

    Well, Boca Raton is only 13' above sea level so these FAU kids are gonna be sucking air up here at 621'. Kinda like us at UTEP and CO. [​IMG]
