What should FAU's goals be for the next 5 years??

There has been lots of discussion on this board about the direction that FAU is headed. This discussion has included coaching changes, a change in conference, and the stadium.

If you could make the map for the future of FAU football over the course of the next 5 years, what would be some realistic goals??

Here are mine:

  1. Increase funding
  2. Improve recruiting
  3. Finish no lower than 2nd in the SBC
  4. Beat a top 25 team
  5. Move to a better conference (following success in the SBC)
  6. Significantly increase attendance


GO OWLS!!!

I think my goals would be similar, but priorities would be

  1. Dominate the conference.  (we'd be an embarrassment going anywhere else conference wise until we can do this)
  2. Beat a top 25 team.

I think if we could manage these two goals, everything else will fall into place.

FAU - We got Bowls!

I actually thought that if funding and recruiting improved conference success and beating a top 25 team would fall into place.

It is the old chicken or the egg situation.

I agree with Duder's order as well, I'd just add the new coach for 2012 (Yes, HS deserves 2011 in the new stadium!)

Yep, there is no guarantees in college football.  Texas has EVERYTHING you can imagine…facilities, tradition, coaching, fans, etc.  and they are not good this year.  There are always ups and downs you just have to learn how to handle them.

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

Look at what Texas has done the last decade. You are going to judge them on one year??

Also Texas and FAU are apples and oranges.

I'm not comparing FAU to Texas, nor am I judging them because of one bad year, I am just pointing out the falsity in your statement…

"I actually thought that if funding and recruiting improved, conference success and beating a top 25 team would fall into place."

just because you have funding and recruiting, it does not equal success… that is all I am saying.

And because of that, is  why I agree with the goals Duder listed should be on top.

No, funding and recruiting don't necessarily equal success. Notre Dame has proven that.

Many on this board have been pointing to poor recruiting or at least a need for an improvement. Funding has also been a hot topic on the board with regard to hiring a new coach.

Do I think we will be in a position to beat a top 25 team without better talent and coaching…no.

Talent takes recruiting and coaches cost money.

GO OWLS!!!
