Not Enough Credit...

There are several posts on the Chips board about how embarrassing to lose to FAU, a Sun Belt Team. We are not bottom of the barrel, the beginning of the year started bad, but we played some tough teams. But seriously, we are the youngest team to make it make it to a bowl game, win it, and now we went back for a second and are 2-0 in bowl games. We might not compete with the BCS teams, but we can play with any CUSA, MAC, WAC or any other non-BCS school.

How about some credit where credit is due??????

It's ok…the rest of the nation is in denial as well:

92% of them that is.

Sunbelt was 3-0 over Mac. Great progress

Sunbelt was 1-6 against CUSA. BIG step back from last year.

NO one respects SunBelt Teams, if they get beat by them they blame it on thier failures and not our skills. Dont know what it will take to get that stigma removed but 2 bowls is a hell of a way to start.

I have come here to chew bubble gum and kick @$$ and I'm out of bubble gum.

FYI, the 1 victory was by FAU over UAB (who also defeated UCF 15-0).

Territory that comes from being a young program (still an unknown to some point) & playing in the belt doesn't help things, but FAU can change that, Troy has been able to change people perception & we must continue to do what we are doing & play better in our OC game and peoples perception will start to change.

We have only taken a small step toward doing that and if we continue to improve, and we do need to play better (more consistent) in our OC games and everything will take care of itself.  We'll get there.

Don't expect everyone to get all warm and fuzzy because over what we have accomplish so far, there will always be doubters.  Lets' stay humble in our accomplishments.

Credit will come with time. But until then, we need to keep doing what we are doing (winning), and we need to continue to improve our academic standards, and continue to grow our endowment, our Owl Club memberships and our FAU NAA memberships, so that US News & World Report also give us credit where credit is due, and rank us higher in their publication.

I totally agree with you and Bytor. In addition, We will have a football stadium in the future, our student body will grow more, The football team will have more exposure and our academics will get better. The FAU alumni around the nation is re-connecting with their alma matter and that's good for the school.
Just be patient, most big time schools have been around for over 100 years and they were the only schools around then. It is hard for FAU to emerge and stand out among all these schools especially when get all the credit and the media's attention. Our time will come and it is just around the corner. Keep supporting your school 100%.

I really don't believe that it is going to take FAU 100 years either. The Stone is set the building is on the rise. ;)
