As for Athletics Village, UCF didn't come up with that idea on their own. They saw it somewhere else and then put their own spin on it, just like we did.

Didn't they borrow it from the Olympic villages they build and then brought that to campus? I don't think they got it from another university, even though I believe

ERROR: A link was posted here (url) but it appears to be a broken link.

California Polytechnic did it first as "Poly Canyon Village."

Doesn't matter. Point is that while IV is a great idea for the campus, it really shouldn't be called "Innovation" Village because there's nothing really innovative about the plan (so far) other than the beach-themed stadium. We'll see how it develops.

Interesting side note: FAU freshmen living in IVA are complaining that "it's too far from everything." Seriously. It takes 10 minutes to walk across the entire campus but IVA is "too far from everything." Lazy ass college students.

"The clock in the Innovation Village plaza play the "Stomp Stomp Clap Clap F-A-U-ooooooo" soundbite with every hour change instead of a bell sound." Do you have ANY idea how annoying that would be? haha  :D

Nah. It wouldn't be any more annoying than the regular belltower noise that we already play on the hour from Arts and Letters. And again, it would only play once an hour.

"Fireworks display after every home football win. Come for the game, stay for the fireworks."  You just said we take too many ideas from other people. We may have the same attendance figures, but we're not the Florida Marlins, sorry the "Miami Marlins". This isn't Super Saturday with Luis Rojas lol

Oh, I had no idea they did that. I don't watch baseball.

If I move to Boston, maybe that will change. But for now, no interest.

All summer they have a concert and fireworks after every saturday home game. It's usually a Latin recording artist so I've never stuck around

My two favorite teams are FAU, and who ever is beating FIU!

Re: Fly Over??

Another great idea! get some artists to play after the games, people will stick around for that. As unappealing as it is for the students, I remember the beach boys playing after a weekend Braves game one summer and the park was jammed.

People that want to see the Beach Boys have the means to spend a $400 day at FAU and that's exactly what we need!

Re: Fly Over??

wow this thread has evolved.  Fly overs are awesome, and I can't wait to see our very own owl flyover.  Like I said, I've never really seen the owlfingers in person, so I'll give it a shot.  Theres no way I'm not gonna do it when everyone around me is and I'm 12 beers deep. :D

While we're throwing random thoughts for the game out how about this, I think we should try and promote a Jimmy Buffet or Kenney Chesney type tailgate atmosphere.  Both shows have people bringing out tiki bars, hawaiian shirts, grass skirts, margaritas and good times.  It would keep with the "Football in Paradise" theme we have.  I think I'm gonna work on that.

FAU - We got Bowls!

Now that is a great idea!  Student Government needs to hire a band that can cover these songs for the games. 

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

I'm sure there is no shortage of local 40 or 50-somethings that can do a half-decent job of this.

No problem! When everyone is doing it it looks just fine. There's a great pic of Greg Gantt doing it after a big win last season that's really cool, when the players adopt it you know the tradition has started
