Wait, what? FAU is talking trash about Alabama this weekend?
Unfortunately for them, they certainly are, and fresh off a curb-stomping against Georgia last weekend 56-20, too.
FAU LB Cory Henry gets the ball rolling for this week’s trash talking edition. Bama is a 50.5 point favorite over the Owls this weekend in Tuscaloosa.
“They ain’t what people think,” FAU defensive end Cory Henry said. “They’re good and everything but they can beat, too. They just execute well. They just execute and beat you.”
“We got speed against them,” Henry said. “You got speed you can win.”
What he meant to say is it’s Old Man Football. And Old Man Football turns into grown man football all too quickly.
Western Kentucky engaged in trash talk towards the Tide, too, and they threw up a big fat goose egg on the scoreboard – shut out 35-0.
Let’s talk more about the FAU-Georgia game last week. Georgia set a school record of 713 yards of total offense. FAU is currently ranked 105th in total defense, spotting their opponents 469 yards per game. And as irony would have it, the Owls are also 105th in total offense, too.
One day teams will learn not to run their mouths and hopefully just catch a sleeping giant…sleeping. Alabama is seeking its third consecutive shutout for the first time since 1966, and you better believe they will be aiming to do just that against the Owls.
