Owls Schedule Finalized

FAU Announced their 2004 Schedule today, as well as partial schedules for 2005 and 2006. The 2004 sched is the same as has been discussed with a Nov. 27th game added against Edward Waters. In a related note, Edward Waters is already down by a few touchdowns. I'm glad that another game has been added, but Edward Waters?!?? Oh well, it'll be a nice way to end the year after another Shula Bowl win! ;D

2005 looks very intersting, opening in Lawrence, KS vs. the Jayhawks. A home game vs. FAMU and a full slate of Sunbelt schools makes it a very attractive schedule. 2006 opener is against K-State.

Wow! Great info. KU and K-State, huh? Those make a lot of sense. But I wonder about edward Waters. Was Bethune-Cookman, always a good foe, not available or unwilling?

Schedules for 2005 & 2006 looks great, but I was under the impression that we were schedule to play Alabama in 2005 as well.

Edward Waters, are they new to football & what part of Florida are they from? How many fans will show, considering it's Thankgiving weekend or should we be thanklful we have a 5th home game and we could make it into a huge celebration for another great year for the fighting owls. ;D

Edward Waters is an NAIA school from Jacksonville. I checked their website and they have only 1282 students(even my high school was bigger than that!) and only 50 players on their team. This game will be an enormous mismatch, but at least we will be helping out an instate school financially. Expect a score like the Siena game when they came down here to end their season. Obviously we'd rather a D1 team, but since that wasnt available this will do fine for both us and them.

Thanks for the info fauowls44. I adjusted the schedule with a sticky to the top.

Ed Waters,huh? Interesting. My take on this is that the 12th game probably has some sort of sentimental values for the coaching staff.
A tribute to the 2001 1st Class of Seniors maybe.. :D
Keep an eye on the Trumpet player. He'll probably be on the kick-off team that day… ;)



New Mexico State as homecoming game?

Good to see you finally got your schedule completed, although I really feel bad for Edward Waters. That will be disgusting, guess it's a good chance to see what your bench can do.

I also heard about FAU playing Alabama, maybe it's not finalized, I know FIU has them in 2006. We also play Kansas State, but that's in 2005, you guys get em in 2006. It almost seems like we're scheduing the same teams for some reason. Interesting stuff, good luck this season (except that one game ;) )

We were rumored to have Alabama in 2005. It may still happen because of Coach Schnell's ties up there.

Edward Waters!? That's really gonna help the attendance numbers, isn't it? Weren't there any Community Colleges or local High Schools we could have scheduled instead? Sheesh. I'm all for giving the seniors a good sendoff, but come on…

What can you do though…GO OWLS! ::)

Thanks for the info BurrowingOwl.

About Edward Watres - every teams seems to have an easy game on there schedule (as a first game anyway).

This could actualy make for a great way to say farewell to the seniors - remember most of them have been on the team from the beginning - Original Owls, the one that got this team started, makes for a hell of a celabration in the making & promotional idea. I say we promote it into a major fiesta and give thanks to the original Owls who have given us some awesome football. ;D
