They moved quickly enough on this so we’ll see what it means with girls going to the portal…losing Iggy Allen is a big blow…but I do like this hire by Brian. Very strong resume…the facilities are still a problem but let’s see what she can do.

I really think Brian white is doing a great job. Unfortunately  for us, he will probably get swept away by a better offer some day. But he earned it.

If you mean on paper, definitely agree…otherwise, respectfully disagree.

That said, we now we have a recruiter who has SEC experience…attracting the same type of player without (—————) will be much easier.

Go Owls  :cool:

Welcome and good luck to her. I know the Woman's program has dropped off quite a bit the past ew years.

WE DO gotta do something about facilities for both basketball and baseball if we ever have a shot at moving up and not being relegated to the lower (lowest) level of collegiate sports forever.

This will be the football stadiums 10th season and still no naming rights deal! And still NO concrete plans for upgrading ANY facility at FAU except for building 8 tennis courts. HOW IS THIS?????

Football is costing us an arm and a leg every year, we have gone all in on the program.

Between the stadium debt and lack of revenue coming in from ticket sales/TV contract our program runs big time in the red.

We need to get football to AT LEAST a break even point in order for us to invest in other programs/facilities heavily.  We are a long way from that.

Here's some perspective....

More than 90 percent of the ACC’s revenue was distributed to its schools. Shares averaged $29.5 million for the 14 full members.

I think FAU got $250k for being part of CUSA.  

That means Miami starts every year $28,000,000+ ahead of FAU on athletics funding.

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

Office Depot based in Boca would be a great fit if they would get on board.
I believe they sold their corporate jet and should be saving some money from that expense.
We need to get the community based companies wanting to be part of Florida Atlantic University.
