FAU defensive end with dumbest trash-talking ever

The Florida Atlantic Owls were a fast growing program in Boca Raton, FL. They began play in 2001, and by 2003 they were among the best teams in 1-AA. The goal was to play as a 1-A team, and that they did. By their 3rd season playing among the big boys, they were playing in bowl games. FAU is 2-0 in the lower bowl games they have participated in, but the last came in 2008. The team was built under legendary head coach, Howard Schnellenberger, but eventually fell apart under him as well. They are now one of these worst teams in FBS. They are now 1-2 this season, but coming off a 1-11 season. As a reward, they get to play Alabama ths weekend. Nobody believes this will be close, except for defensive end Cory Henry, who thinks they have the speed to compete with him.

“They ain’t what people think,” Henry said. “They’re good and everything but they can beat, too. They just execute well. They just execute and beat you.”

And Henry was not through. He was then asked if FAU had any kind of advantage.

“We got speed against them,” he said. “You got speed you can win.”

Don’t tug on Superman’s cape, ya know? I understand not wanting to play scare just because they are head and shoulders better than you, but this was going to an unnecessary extreme. Bammer may just want to Roll Tide all over them.

But come to think of it, all they have to do is score once against the best defense in all of college football and they can claim more success than Arkansas.

    You’re too kind, they’re 1-2, before getting waxed by Georgia, they lost to mighty Middle Tennessee.

    They just execute well? Is he not aware that that is the entire purpose of the game?

    If he’s lucky, maybe they’ll pass out cigarettes before the executing begins.
