No revenge for Rusty on Saturday

It's probably frustrating enough for quarterback Rusty Smith to be sidelined, but even more so this because this week FAU faces UAB.

The Owls-Blazers game doesn't have a rivalry-type of atmosphere, but to Smith it was an important game.

Some may remember that Smith was originally offered a scholarship by UAB under a different coaching regime out of high school. However, the Blazers changed their mind and pulled the offer.

I talked with Smith about that when FAU faced UAB last year and he was very direct and to the point.

"I do not like them," Smith repeated over and over again.

By the way, UAB pulled the offer to sign another quarterback - a fellow by the name of Joe Webb, who will start for the Blazers today.

Recruiting heating up: Almost forgot to mention that there were plenty of recruits at last week's game between FAU and Middle Tennessee.

Among those in attendance were:
  • Dyllon Mazzoni QB, Melbourne
  • Tyler Mugar CB, Melbourne
  • Patrice Pierre DB, Liberty HS Kissimmee
  • Jean Leon LB/S, Liberty HS Kissimmee
  • Willie Johnson Ath, Liberty HS Kissimmee
  • Skyler Skersick LB/DE, Boone
  • Ryan Orlando LB/FB, Boone
  • Andre Robinson LB-TE, Lyman HS

    Of course, FAUOwlAccess.com will be following recruiting closely and we'll be updating our recruiting page often.
