We waited 11 years, for THIS?

This may not be the worst loss we've ever had, but it's the most embarrassing! I don't blame Howard, I blame the entire coaching staff! We probably had more yards in penalties than we did in offense. Our best player is our punter and he tried a fake punt/pass/punt. Yes the officiating was awful, phantom late hit penalties but thats a lame excuse.

We waited 11 years and you can't even score a single point? Problem is our coach is way past his prime and won't make the players regret this loss. Bring on Leavitt!

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

They need to get a coach named NOW, so he can get to the recruiting trail and build this program.  The new stadium is AMAZING.  There is so much talent around the country that goes unnoticed, we have to find those kids and bring them here.

I also blame the players, and that offense is just the worst…  because out of all this, a new stadium, a full house and they can't put up a single point to show the fans. Even if the coaching is bad, there should be some athletic ability, fired upness, produce something. This was embarrassing by far and you want to sell tickets for the next game but you can't produce 1 point against the worst team in FBS during the opening of our stadium…. PFFT!!!

Sorry to say… as nice the stadium may be, kinda glad I didn't blow $1,000 to come down for that.

Agreed - but let's face it - the players on the field just aren't that good. As a whole this is not a D1 caliber football team from top to bottom, especially on offense. The coaches are responsible for bringing these players in. And it almost seems as if some of these players know they are in way over their head and just pack it in in games. They make some of the dumbest decisions/mistakes on the field I have ever seen. Who knows - we just know we are bad. From the coaches to the players - this is just flat out awful football.

I disagree.  I'm disapponted that we lost, but the stadium is totally worth it.  I knew going in that this team was terrible, but hey, we could be terrible and playing in Lockhart.  The stadium was the star today.  They did an amazing job on it.  As hard as it is to watch this team play right now, this place will turn this program around in a hurry.

Agree, the stadium is a gem...but they better learn how to manage the attendance flow very quickly. Folks will not continue to come back and deal with with what quite a few had to deal with today.

I agree we are terrible but at least we have a stadium in place to recruit.  I rather loose in a nice home than drive down to lockhart and have our A$$'s to us there.  All in all I had alot of fun and will be returning for the rest of the season.  Ive been supporting this team back when we lost to slippery rock, we are going to have good years and bad years, deal with it.  We suck this year, probably next year too, but it will get better.  I understand everyones anger but just goes to show how many fair weather fans we have down here.  I don't support the team because we win, I support the team because I ties there.

Really?  I had no issues…but then again, I was in early, but my experience getting into and out of campus was very smooth.

Anyway, considering FAU had never done anything close to this before, issues were to be expected.  Getting 30,000 people into any venue is complicated, especially the first time you try and do it.  If people thought they were going to show up at 3:30pm and walk right in, then I'm sorry, I don't have much sympathy for them.
