Stewart Mandel Luv

Stewart Mandel of SI - very knowledgable and covers NCAA football. His mailbag is always insightful and the mailbag crush is always a hottie.

Here's his latest mailbag which lists the top 5 most underrated college coaches and HS is 2nd

2) Howard Schnellenberger, Florida Atlantic. I get the sense that most fans these days view the legendary Miami architect as some crazy old kook playing out his twilight years at some obscure Sun Belt school – and for the most part, they're right. But have you happened to notice what the crazy old kook is pulling off in Boca Raton?

In just their second season in Division I-A last year, Schnellenberger's 6-year-old program not only captured a conference title but also beat a BCS-conference foe (Minnesota) and won a bowl game (the New Orleans Bowl, over Memphis). I've even seen some publications list the Owls as a top-40 team this season, and by no means is it a stretch (star QB Rusty Smith, for one, is the real deal). Think the old man can't still coach a little bit?


Its basically things we FAU fans already know but its more good publicity for the program

Or more hype.  I hope not, but this is definitely turning into a put-up-or-shut-up year.  Now, we have to perform because if we don't the critics will be relentless.  We won a lot of close games last year – dare I say a couple were accidental wins.  We can't do that now.
