I would encourage all to not use the term 'great' to describe any USF player after the SB game.  We should not be playing this team as there is a totally different level of athlete who is at USF vs. SB.

It's nothing more than a tune up (barely) for UF.  The mission shold be to win the game and suffer no injuries.

Go Bulls!

Agree... this is basically a High School team that we should not have even scheduled.

If we don't blow them out by 80-0 then I will be a bit upset...

I just want to see progress...

Good mix of run and pass plays and protection of the QB

Solid Special Teams play, no more opposing field position at the 40 yd line

Strong D, no gimmie's or long plays and guys out of place watching plays happen

And NO STUPID penalites...smart and controlled football

I don't care what the score is really...as long as we aren't behind.

I think most are coming to the reality that we might be in for a sub-par season with the youth and injuries we have.  I just don't want us to have a good game and then expectations are set way up there...just to have the bashing start after we lose a few games.

Yeah, I would rather have the WKU or FAU game before the UF game and the SB game afterward. SB would be a good team to take out our frustration of the UF loss against and WKU/FAU would be a much better warmup.

Prepare to be disappointed. I promise you the score will be nowhere even remotely close to that.

OK, make up your minds, some on the board are saying that we won't be very good at all, some are saying that we may have a losing record. IMO, for anyone to say that we shouldn't be playing someone is kidding themselves. First game, new O, new D. I think that "a glorified" HS team is a great tune-up. No matter how many of us say how "great" a player is, the coaches know better. Yea, I want to play an FAU team that 3 years ago, put up a nice fight against us when we were ranked in the top 10. Plus, if there is nice general execution of our offense I will be happy. Even against a "glorifed" HS team, it's not always easy to execute. We usually don't play well in our first game ie. Elon 28-13, and if my memory serves me correctly didn't it take a botched snap on a punt to get us started?

Hate to play the role of Grammar Gestapo, but that should be "Lay off the...."  A layoff is when you are fired. 

I think it's dangerous to approach any game with the mentality that they're not on your level.  These are athletes who puts their jock straps on one leg at a time just like our players.  I'm sure Michigan thought they'd walk all over Appalachian State a couple years ago.

If we go in, win 56-7, have no major injuries, fine tune our offense and defense, and execute well,  I'm going to call it a great game.

We did exactly what we needed to do to prepare for Florida, then its a great game.  Its in no way saying we are a great team. Nothing wrong with giving a little credit.
