State of the FAUnion...
-Dwight D. Eisenhower
This team has played with great heart so far and too many close games have been lost late in the 4th. The Owls are a few plays away from a 5-2 or at least a 4-3 record. These close games must become wins in the second half of the season.

Regarding the fans, I think things are going relatively well there. The Rat's Mouth is upbeat, the Cove is starting to come together, we obviously had a good turnout on Saturday and there's still a lot of positive energy on Twitter from young FAU fans after the loss. The best thing (I think) is paving the way for future attendance by providing a memorable gameday experience. Those kids who are used to partying in the Rat's Mouth are going to be back for games once they graduate - you're starting to see these "first game as an alumnus" posts. And that's really how it's done. When I went to the FAU-UF game years ago, I sat near an elderly couple who said they've been coming to Gator games for over 40 years. They were students and then just carried on after they graduated, now attending games with their kids who were alums as well. That's ultimately how FAU will fill the stadium too.
