What gives?!

How come FAU has such little merchandise?  I'm not saying compared to big schools like Florida or anything.  But even UAB and Troy has a lot of merchandise.  Our online store is litterally ALL apparel.  Does anyone know whose in charge of the merchandise ordeal or why we have such limited products?

You have to go to the book store to some descent stuff i don't know the school doesn't put everything the book store has on-line …….Even schools like UAB and Troy have more tradition then we do until our products sell more you wont find much.
But the good news is the stuff is slowly surely increasing ask some of the older alum how much stuff there was 5 years ago.

You can also get a discount through the boostore too if you buy an annual membership to the FAUNAA…i think its like 15% or something like that…

Athletics can't tell Wal-Mart to stock FAU stuff. Wal-Mart has to like FAU stuff, pay to purchase it and then resell it.

And as fellow 'Nest member owlcountry will tell you, the managers of these retail stores won't purchase FAU gear until there is a demand for it.

You should google for FAU Gear and see what website pop up.

FAU should consider selling the entire Nike line of FAU products to the public instead of just making them for athletic team members and selling what ever is left over at the surplus sale.  IMO they would sell well.

Yes, but then how do you distinguish amongst fans and players, if they are all wearing the same stuff? Especially in a crowd of people.

Maybe its the 280 lb, 6'3'' guy and not the 5'3' 100 lb blonde.  Do people confuse fans at Marlins games with actual players simply because they aware official jerseys and hats? Nope.  I think the Nike gear would be just fine.

Haha I noticed that site, owlsgear.com
I'm not to sure who runs that but they are doing a good job!  I just want to see more people wearing FAU stuff.  I live 2 hours north of Boca and I only see an FAU once in a blue moon.  It's a little depressing to be honest.
