Good Year - Better One Coming

End to a good season, that showed much potential for next year.

Two seconds from having a .500 season and being Bowl eligible.
The only conference game that got out of hand was against the Smurfs Puppies, yet the score doesn't really dictates the type of game it was.

It was good to see the players play with great intensity for sixty minutes, hopefully this shows the players what can happen when you keep the intensity level-up for an entire game. A complete game with good results, all you can ask for.

Again FAU foils the sports writer. This season was supposed to be a bust and the kids pulled it out. Your right about it being something to build on and also for the recruiting and growth. I heard a couple of the kids talking at half time and one kid said something about the number of people on the FIU side compared to FAU, Not that it is an astronomical difference but it was enough for a couple of them to talk about it. Wins are also good for recruits to see.

I have a very good feeling about next season and not just for W's and L's. The theme this year seemed to be the phrase "FAU is on the move are you with us" The support for the team was good and hopefully the numbers will increase. I also believe that the "prOWLers" have started a tradition that will be something for the students to build on and help with getting more of them involved in all sports. The fans have to be there for this program to grow and it was sad looking over at the FIU stands especially for this game. They should have had more there then us to support there team and see if they would, win there first game, keep the Shula Trophy, Spoil the night for FAU. Only a handful care and that is what is so sad. I was glad to see the people support the Owls last year especially and realize where the program is and where it is going. That "05 was a bump in the road do to the youth of the program as well as the players.

On Sunshine Network as I mentioned before, they said that Schnelly has brought stability to FAU and that will be key in the growth of the program. You can make excuses not to attend and support your team because they loose and that is when the team needs the support the most. Its hard for a fan to sit and watch a there team loose but it is just as hard for those kids that play the game. Support your team not only in the good times but the bad.

I agree Talon that you need to support your team regardless and I am totally baffled as to why FIU has never supported their team at Dolphin stadium. Especially since this is suppose to be a rivalry game, you would think that would be sufficient enough for them to show-up, plus the fact that they humiliated us last year. Where is the passion from there fans.

The crowd was great and shows that even though attendance this year is down a bit, we still have a great fan base that continues to support the team no matter. Regardless of who we play.

I disagree that attendance was down this year. The announced numbers may have been lower this year, but at Lockhart, we were drawing some of our biggest crowds ever. They announced 11,000+ last year for most games, but there was no more than 5,000-6,000 in the crowd. This year when they annouced 9,000 it actually looked like there was that many people there. I thought it was a good step in the right direction, especially in terms of student attendance….Hopefully we'll see another big jump next season. And hopefully we see students come out to the basketball games. The more student participation at athletic events, the better for everyone.

Corporate buy out of a few games was the reason for the large numbers last year…they didnt do that this year - no need…

Butts in the stands is much better than paid no shows :)

Does everyone see that the ball is rolling and picking up some momentum? Next year all but 4 starters are returning. That was very good planning.

We have 2 very high rated recruits that will fill in on the Oline, Wischefski and Bowling. The rest of the line should be even better next year. Pierre was great this year. I'm hoping Howard will pick up some bruising RBs for the future this spring. We need to replace Sanchez. He will be missed. I'm counting on a good recruiting class this spring. I hope all the recruits out there can see this program is going somewhere.

Next year should be great for FAU. I think the team should pull back a bit on the four non-conference games against BCS opponents and take on a couple of games that are a bit more winnable. Two more wins could mean a bowl invite. Next year should be great either way. GO OWLS!!!
