so after looking at the basketball schedule the celebration is on Saturday the 7th not Friday the 6th. There's no game on 6th & on the 7th we play Troy.

Here's the reponse i got when asking "why" it was on Friday and not Saturday:

"If I could answer that I would be rich."

Apperantly, Coach wants it at this day and time, and that is that.

I hate to say this but I agree with Jab. Have the new kids see the old kids and they can check out the Dirty Birds, get a taste of some college atmosphere kind of thing† :P

Actually, there is a softball double-header against UMaryland and UMass after the celebration. That's why they did it… to get people to attend softball.

If you attend the celebration and both softball games, you get a DVD.

So it must be an Athletics marketing decision.

Per FAU, Howard made the call on day and time…when I spoke to them there was no mention of Softball, so it must be an afterthought.

"Schnellenberger and select FAU football players will be on hand to sign autographs at the FAU softball teamís season-opening doubleheader against The University of Massachusetts and the University of Maryland at the FAU Softball Complex beginning at 6 p.m.

Fans who attend both the Motor City Bowl celebration and the two softball games will receive an FAU commemorative DVD."


I wonder who???

A motor city bowl DVD just for going to a softball double header… OR I can skip the double header and I can wait a few days for those fans who did get one and look on eBay lol. I'm sure they'll give them out again when they realize that hardly anyone from that celebration will be at the softball games
