Baseballamerica.com: Strike Two: Florida Atlantic Makes Its Move

Nice entry from the guys at baseballamerica.com including a video link from last Friday's laborious rain delay from fauowlaccess.com:

"Good luck figuring out the Sun Belt Conference. You thought Western Kentucky was the team to beat? The Hilltoppers went on the road and were swept by Florida Atlantic this weekend. Two weeks ago, WKU dropped a series to Arkansas State, which surged to the top of the Sun Belt standings—and then got swept at Evansville this weekend. Preseason favorites Middle Tennessee State and Florida International have been up and down. South Alabama leads the league currently, but the Jaguars dropped a series just last weekend to Western Kentucky.

The point is, the league is wide open. This week, Florida Atlantic stepped into that vacuum with a huge sweep of the Hilltoppers. The Owls have been pretty consistent this year, winning seven of their eight weekend series, and five of their six conference series, but their sweep of WKU this weekend was the statement they have been waiting for. Now they're 12-6 in the league, just a game out of first place."

The video was shown on ESPN's PTI today.  Really good exposure for the Owl's in the past week.  We are up to #37 in the RPI today also!!!

If anyone is near a TV or can access their DVR from the computer ESPN First take is going to be showing the video again any minute as well as talk to some of the players involved. Not sure if that means WKU/FAU or both. Should be funny though

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!
