Did FAU schedule Hawaii again?

Hey guys- I thought I read that FAU scheduled Hawaii for another series.  Anyways, just thought I'd share this recent article from a Fresno fan who described the "fans" in Hawaii.  Needless to say, if any of you make the trip out there, I'd expect the worst.  I've heard bad things from MANY fans from different schools, including Houston who played a bowl game vs. them.

Congrats on your season- hopefully FAU makes a bowl game and you guys can enjoy that.  UCF finally turned around their season after the ECU and USF nuclear meltdowns.  It'd be fun to put your QB and Kevin Smith on the same team.

This is the link to the Fresno story.

Hey man! Thanks for posting. Yeah, we saw that. We don't have Hawaii lined up – and it's probably for the best, considering what was written here.

In terms of FAU and UCF, we're hoping to see both teams at the New Orleans Bowl. Would be a great game.

Re: Did FAU schedule Hawaii again?

Keep in mind that was one angry Fresno fans words-not necessarily true.  You can read some of the accounts on the Hawaii boards Sports Hawaii - View topic - i got kicked out of the stadium and see a very different story of Fresno fans trying to knock down Hawaii signs,starting fights,etc.  HAwaii-Fresno is a very nasty rivalry where it gets just as ugly in the crowd as it does on the field.  They had the same problems the year before in Fresno also.
I wonder if the say will come when FAU has a rival that we have taht much hostility with.  It was pretty ugly in baseball with FAU-Stetson a few years back but currently the football team doesnt have a hated villain but FIU is getting close.

The way the FIU fans talk about us over on their mboard, I'm surprised that it isn't more intense. And we do our fair share of knocking around FIU over here so it's clearly not one-sided.

I really don't see this becoming a big rivalry until one or both teams are ranked. The players have their own axe to grind against teams like MTSU but the only team that really irritated me was ULM because of what they did at the end.

And the South Florida game was great too.

The Fresno writer was very detailed. I got the impression he wrote for a living.

We have heard horrible things about Hawaii games for years. I'm with the Fresno guy.

Re: Did FAU schedule Hawaii again?

I was at the Hawaii game a few years back and it got ugly then.  We we all seated in a corner end zone screaming and having a great time when all of s sudden after we won with the dramatic comeback a group of cops came up and told us they had to escort us out of the stadium for our own safety.  We were all a little shocked since it didn't appear that hostile but apparently the locals can get real nasty, we saw more than a few fights in the stands also.

GREAT GAME! 

GO OWLS!

The members of the FIU board for the longest time were saying there is no rivalry. They wanted to develop one with UM which would give them more credibility. Of course that is what was being said on that board. I don't know how the other fans, students, players and coaches feel about it. According to UM's schedule, those two teams won't be playing each other any time soon. You can't have a rivalry if you don't play against one another.

If you spoke with the current Owl football team, they get more fired up over MTSU.

Re: Did FAU schedule Hawaii again?

I've talked to Houston fans who said that during their bowl game vs. Hawaii, their fans tried fighting an entire section of Cougar fans and some large semoan went up to a woman with a baby and told her "That's the ugliest bastard kid I've ever seen".

It's not just one case, I've heard TERRIBLE things from every group of fans to go to Hawaii.

Honestly, there should be an investigation by the NCAA and if they find more of the same Hawaii should be kicked out of playing NCAA games.  The behavior I hear about EVERY TIME fans go over there is just atrocious.

OMG! I've never heard any of this stuff about HI before. The Samoan/baby confrontation is so low class! Please someone beat them this season!

Beware the talons of the Mighty Owls!
