"Mayor Steve Abrams, who initially was cool to the idea of a stadium, accompanied the Owls on their trip to New Orleans and returned a supporter of the program. He has pledged a parade after the New Year to honor the Owls."

Looking forward to that…

2 things caught my eye on this article:

1. Lenn Robbins - always on ESPN2 First Take for college football and he is a jerk… he called the Sun Belt Conference "a division I-AA conference with 'maybe $200 more revenue than the Ivy League"… so for him to write such an optimistic column on our program is unbelievable

2. Boca mayor throwing a parade for us?? the biggest battle is won, my friends… he was staunchly against the stadium months ago

2 things

1) When they allow us to put FAU banners on our streetlight poles along Glades and Spanish RIver, we will have won another battle

and

2) We already provide Boca with Lifelong Learning classes, plays, exhibits, speakers, and a spectacular Fourth of July show… now once we get people involved in the Homecoming Parade it's all going to be gravy…

See, that is something I don't understand. FAU has ALWAYS been a source of culture for the surrounding community. Back when I attended FAU, the locals would come to the plays, concerts, art shows, you name it, they were there. You would think the biggest fans of FAU would be the the people who live in the area surrounding the university.  Maybe now that they realize the university can be a source of pride, we will see more support in both academics and athletics.

FAU - THE REAL SLEEPING GIANT

Nice article, but it would be nice if the guys got our AD's name right.  It's Angelos, not Angelo.

Another interesting thing from the article: FAU needs to raise $8 million in private funding for the stadium and, prior to the bowl game, raised around $2 million. Maybe the parade (if it happens) will help raise funding as well?
