WELL, CRAIG, DID YOU NOTICE HOW USF AND TROY "SLAUGHTERED" FAU??--SPEAKING OF SLAUGHTERED, WHERE ARE YOUR HOMETOWN HURRICANES PLAYING THIS WEEK?--ANYWAY, IF FAU AND THE CANES PLAYED TONIGHT ON A NEUTRAL FIELD I BELIEVE FAU WOULD KICK MIAMI'S BUTT---BUT THAT'S ONLY HYPOTHETICAL SINCE MIAMI REFUSES TO PLAY BOTH FAU, USF AND CENTRAL FLORIDA.----CHICKEN!!!!!!!

Come On Craig. At least they did get to a bowl un like the Canes. These guys deserve credit for what they have done no matter what bowl they are playing in.

agreed, for a 7th year program, there is no such thing as a "minor" bowl bid. come on. they have been in 1-A for a whole 2 years lol. Show respect. and by the way, Laskowski is a model of class and leadership,and it would be great if he could end up on the coaching staff somehow.

He's just jealous. It's a sign that we have arrived. UM fans are starting to hate FAU now because we now pose a threat. We can beat them in baseball and now we can beat them in football. Watch out Miami here comes FAU.

This is our first bowl appearance. A seven year old program. It is good reason to celebrate and be excited. It never fails though. Someone always shows up to piss in the punch.

I am a proud Hurricane fan but I am really happy for the FAU guys. They really deserve to be playing in a bowl. I wish them all the best. Coach Schnell is the real deal. The man gets results and will always be held in high regard in Coral Gables. Win OWLS!!!

Good luck FAU. Hopefully some time in the future you can play UCF and develop a real rivalry. Memphis can put up some big #'s.

Congrats to FAU and Schnell... he will always be a god in our eyes. But you small fry fans talking smack reminds me a lot of the movie Troy when Paris tried to fight Menelaus... hysterical.

FAU beating UM in football EVER would be comparable to the Dolphins beating the Patriots on Sunday... what are the odds?

As a ten year staff member at FAU, I remember meeting with Coach Schnellenberger before we even had a team. We volunteered to do whatever needed to get things started in the FAU football program. It is nice to see the progress that has been made in just seven years. Congratulations to all that have made it possible.
