  1. BOCA RATON — After months of searching, Lane Kiffin has finally found his graduate transfer quarterback. Former Arkansas and SMU quarterback Rafe Peavey has officially joined the Owls as a grad transfer and is immediately eligible to play. Peavey was cleared shortly before Tuesday’s practice and took reps with the first, second, and third-teams. “We’re always looking for people,” Kiffin said, “and we had looked for a while for the right fit of a quarterback due to numbers once Jason (Driskel) left.” Peavey, 22, was a perfect four-of-four for 116 yards and a touchdown in three games last season. A former three-star recruit from Missouri, Peavey transferred to SMU in 2016 and mainly served as Ben Hicks’ backup last season. Redshirt junior De’Andre Johnson is currently battling redshirt freshman Chris Robison for the starting quarterback job. Kiffin said the addition of Peavey is “not any reflection upon” Johnson and Robison’s performances.

  2. HUNTINGTON - On paper, it appears that Florida Atlantic should run through Conference USA in 2018. It isn't an unfounded thought, considering the Owls' tightest football game the last three months of the season was a 30-25 home win over Marshall in which the Owls used their defense to force turnovers and keep the Thundering Herd at arm's length, leading for two scores for much of the contest with the Herd battling to get back in it. For all intents, THAT was a young Florida Atlantic team. Young talent, new coaching staff, new schemes. Now, head coach Lane Kiffin has expectations in his second year, and many of those are on the national level, not just Conference USA. There are reasons for that. FAU returns third-team All-American Devin Singletary at running back and 10 defensive starters from a unit that gave up yardage but forced many turnovers to negate the yards allowed. However, the supposed walk through Conference USA will not be an easy trek for the Owls, given some of the things they will have to endure in the 2018 campaign. read more: http://www.williamsondailynews.com/sports/loaded-fau-will-be-aiming-for-a-repeat/article_809cdb96-a9b9-592d-9e9f-4226d923f17b.html
  3. BOCA RATON North Texas head coach Seth Littrell knows firsthand the challenges that come with turning a dismal program around. Two years after inheriting an 11-1 program, Littrell’s Mean Green (9-3, 7-1) prepare to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls (9-3, 8-0) in Saturday’s Conference USA title game. Speaking to the media in a teleconference call on Tuesday, the third-year coach expressed his respect for the job FAU coach Lane Kiffin has done. “I think he’s done an unbelievable job,” Littrell said of Kiffin. “It’s a challenge getting somewhere, building relationships, setting your culture, having your guys buy into it. … It’s a great challenge.” Kiffin and Littrell faced off on Oct. 21, a 69-31 FAU win where the Owls recorded more than 800 yards of total offense. FAU players admitted after the win to being motivated by Littrell commenting that the Owls shouldn’t have scheduled the Mean Green for their homecoming game. read more: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/college-football/north-texas-coach-seth-littrell-praises-lane-kiffin-quick-fix-fau/NMHlUS5ew3a1y5VeA518xJ/
  4. “You are not going to get Coach Speak here," Kiffin said. "When I say I'm happy here, that's what every coach says. But I really am. It's a very unique situation: A) we have a great team, B) a ton of them come back, almost the whole team comes back. And we love living here. There's a family element that's awesome. My dad's here. My brother's a coordinator. Mom's here. My brother's four kids. We've got a president that wants football to win, came from Clemson and envisions this place being like Clemson some day." https://www.cbssports.com/college-footba...17-season/
  5. I may be getting ahead of myself, but is FAU really any good? Yeah they won big on ODU 58-28, but they did it mainly on the ground. Driskel was only 13/22 for 97 yards and an INT and no TDS. They ran the ball down ODU's throat on the way to 453 rushing yards. They had a nearly 200 yard rusher in Singletary, and another 100 yard rusher in Howell Jr. Driskel even rushed for 92 on his own. They have losses to Navy. Wisconsin, and a 3-3 Buffalo. However, ESPN FPI only gives us a 27.2% chance of winning and has FAU favored in every game the rest of the way except against LA Tech, but it is pretty much a pick'em game right now. Is there something I'm missing here? Or is it just the Lane Kiffin effect?

  7. I haven't really been following the Lane Kiffin at FAU. But does anyone know if he will hire his father again to be his defensive coordinator or as a defensive assistant? Monte is currently a defensive assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
