Inside The Burrow

Riding into the sunset....

I thought this would work out.

Me being a full-time FAU student and being able to keep my toes in the water of FAU athletics, where I had swam for 11 years before leaving the Sun-Sentinel for nursing school.

But the accelerated program I am in has been a load.…

FAU gets a TD, beats the spread -- and loses third straight game

All things considered, it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

Yes, FAU lost to Alabama 40-7, but the Tide is the No. 1 team in the nation and I expected a worse whipping. Not that it was pretty or that the Owls were ever in the…

Another Saturday, another beat down...Owls 50-plus point dogs

I'm back. Brutal week, with more to come.

But I am surviving.

So, let's see, study for my Psych test, get the Pharmacology quizzes done, or tune in to the FAU vs. No. 1 Alabama game at 5 p.m. today?

Well, since I know FAU is…

Alfred the Antidote, Part II

I don't know about you, but I have added something to my Sundays since the NFL began playing.

Call it the Alfred Watch, as in keeping track of what former FAU running back Alfred Morris is doing for Washington.

So far the rewards…

Same old feeling as FAU gets drubbed again

Ah, to have that feeling that Western Kentucky fans are having today. That ULM fans had last week and is still there after the Warhawks nearly went 2-0 in the SEC...

To go into a money game and win or scare the crap out of the…

The antidote for FAU fans: Alfred Morris

Owl Country was in a funk Sunday, waking with the realization that the 7-3 win over Wagner in game 1 could be the highlight of the 2012 season. 

But those who might have tuned in the Washington at New Orleans NFL game out of curiosity found the antidote for their misery.…

FAU moves to 1-3 on the season

Barely beating Wagner didn't feel like a win to knowledgeable FAU fans, and that was proven Saturday, when the Owls got drubbed by Middle Tennessee.

 The Owls are now 1-1 on the season, but one can safely pencil in 1-3, since the…

MTSU game will show where FAU stands

After a confidence-shattering win-that-felt-like-a-loss against Wagner, FAU heads into battle Saturday against a legit opponent, and the same big questions linger.

Can this O score points? 7 against Wagner felt like 0. Add the four turnovers, and you have an O that is still very suspect. …

Too soon for a Belt Basement Battle?

Yes, it's early, and yes, I sound like Debbie Downer, but looking at Saturday's matchup, I can't help but think that this could determine last place in the Belt when the season is over.

In one corner is FAU, which needed one huge…

Is a win like Friday's really a win?

OK, trot out the cliche: A Win is a Win.

Especially for a team that went 1-11 last season.

Owl Country should be happy, right?

Well, residents of Owl Country also have a right to be concerned after it took a fourth quarter TD to beat I-AA Wagner 7-3 Friday night.…

Czar Pelini Era MUST begin with a win for FAU

This is not a prediction, it is a mandate:

FAU must beat Wagner in the season opener.

Anything less would be an immense setback for a program that appeared headed for the stratosphere in 2007, but has been heading for Middle Earth since then.…

I am paying for this? I want a better return on my forced investment

Seeing things from a new angle is very enlightening.

As you know, I jumped out of my comfort zone (Connie the Wonder Women categorizes it more like jumping off a cliff), and went from full-time journalist covering FAU sports

FanFest a WashOut, so FAU's secret is safe

So, what was one able to glean from the 18-play FanFest scrimmage?

Well, those planning future events should consider the fact that it is August and we live in South Florida.

That means outdoor activities should be planned around…

I'm back and complaining once again

I am back.

And trying to get used to steamy South Florida after a week in the cool mountains of north Georgia. It was 64 degrees when we left.

After hiking up cool streams in search of the elusive stocked rainbow trout, I

Czar Pelini hopes he is the one to push the right buttons

Finals over, so headed to the mountains of north Georgia for a vacation.

Yes, they have mountains in Georgia, and yes, I am aware of what lurks in the woods...

And if you are not aware of what the above photo eludes to, then…

Secrecy bit of a buzz-killer

Remember those dreams/nightmares you used to have about school, about not being able to find your classroom, or missing a crucial test?

Well, I can say that they finally disappear about 20 years after you graduate and take your

Owls turn into early birds under Carl Pelini

 Carl Pelini promised everything would be different when he took over from Howard Schnellenberger, and so far he has been right.

 Under Schnellenberger, practices were open. Pelini has closed off access and now what goes on behind The Oxley stays behind The Oxley.…

Low expectations mean stress-free season for FAU fans

With all the preseason conference polls coming out, now is a good time to trot out this adage: “Expectations minus reality equals disappointment.”

The good news for FAU is that the expectations for the Owls, at least by the Sun
