F Chris Bryant has been cleared by NCAA, a source tells me and is on the way to Starkville to join team in time for Tuesday's game at Mississippi State.

Just updated our preview of the game with the latest news.

Anyone watching the Georgia-Youngstown State game on ESPNU may recognize the color analyst.

It's former FAU coach Matt Doherty calling the game.Guess he needed something to do after getting canned by SMU.

Did watch a few minutes of that.

Doherty wasn't bad as an analyst, but that game was horrid.

Surprised no RTC references (old school Owl fans may get that)

OK Marcus, I have been around for a while, but I have no idea what RTC means.   Are you able to elaborate?

Posted: 11/13/2012 1:33:00 PM

Doherty preached RTC - Respect, Trust and Commitment.

Those three letters were present everywhere around the program.

But, the T and the C rang a little hollow after he bolted FAU after just one year.
