"Wise Owl" rememberance wall

I got an e-mail from FAU today FINALLY mentioning the initial season ticket holder wall plaque. Damn are we slow at geting simple things done.

If we go to the new "mega" conference, we had better immediately clean house and bring in a competent profressional staff at ALL LEVELS (up to and including the AD!) or we will be the new Mega Conference doormat forever I hate to say!

Is it really that hard to do what is promised in a timely fashion and be organized and professional at the same time?

I'm not sure what happened with the wall going up after the season finished, but again… let's not immediate blame FAU staff. Who knows what could have happened. The construction company could have made the mistake…. the design company could have made a mistake…. the engineers could have made a mistake, etc. It's not as if FAU staff collects the names, builds the walls, etches the names in the walls, pours the concrete, etc.

Sorry Smitty, I respect what you do and have done for us at FAU but I beleive SOMEBODY (anybody for that matter) on the FAU staff should have been simply asking the question - "what about the wall" and keeping the issue alive and getting it done IN A TIMELY MANNER. WE (FAU) have GOT TO DO BETTER delivering on the promises made to the program supporters and the local community if the program is really gonna ever develop a loyal and generous following. Breaking promises, or dropping the ball won't get it done.
I truly beleive we turned off far more potential new Owl fans than we developed - and not because the team sucked, but because the athletics program and community relations and stadium management are EXTREMELY SUBSTANDARD.

They got the donor brick area done - there's a promise kept.

Except they forgot to order half the bricks

And are they still readable? Even opening day they looked sandblasted to heck - very hard to read.
