Back to Chicago after a GREAT Motor City Bowl!!!

I have to tell ya…this was by far one of the best experiences I have ever had. It was electric inside Ford Field! Though CMU had the crowd majority, the FAU fans that were there brought such POSITIVE energy and an amazing vibe. I can't say anything negative about the Chips fans because until the end where there was this one boy and his father that decided to come into our section (105) and try to act tough and cause a bit of trouble..but disappeared after the final CP first down..but other then that, they were respectful and were supportive of our young program.

The Owls played like they were defending "our house". The atmosphere at Ford Field was great and the players showed up as you all know! We had the MO on our side most of the time and it seemed that even the CMU band was showing senses of urgency throughout. Rusty Smith is a true gentleman who will go far whether it is on or off the field. He is what FAU needs, because he is a stand up guy who bleeds red and blue! He took the time along with many of the FAU players to come to our section and interact with us and make us part of the celebration! I have a lot of pictures that I will post ASAP.

We have come so far since that HOT September day in 2001 where the journey began against Slippery Rock. Though I have been away from Florida for a few years, I am proud to be an alumni of FAU and an Owl supporter forever.

Very cool! I know that I'll never forget the games against Albany and Marist and St. Peters and the like. To think it's only been 8 years….To see where we've come in that short amount of time is amazing. Can't wait for the pics. GO OWLS!

Nice post man!
Thanks for your support!
I attended few games when FAU was in D1AA even though, I was not enrolled at FAU.
It is crazy to think that 1 month ago we were talking about how important was to win the Shula Bowl for our school's pride.
Little we knew that FAU could get a bowl bid again and finish strong with a win on ESPN.

You can send them to me and I can post them for you if you want. I'll do a "fan experience blog" with your experience and pics… maybe you can write captions for them too? How does that sound?

F_O? Bytor? Sound good?
