Question from Shane
Keep up the great work. Congrats on the stadium, make us national champions…..I can see it….
Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
We are delighted that the Board of Trustees along with the President have authorized us to move ahead with all due haste to provide funding to develop a 30,000 seat open-air stadium, in the heart of the campus at Boca Raton. The stadium will be completed no later than September 1, 2010. (Maybe sooner if the signature gift can be can be secured in the next several months).

illinoisowl saidI hope this is a hint that something is in the works to get the money in fast.
you are correct…
There was some news on here 7-8 or more months ago about a donor ready to throw some big bucks at FAU for the stadium. I brought it up several times in the last month or two. No response. I assume this is being kept secret until the right time to announce it.
