RE: Look Out for FAU
Teams always tend to hire the opposite of the coach they just fire. Charlie was the nicest lovable local guy that recruited good players who has no issues. We went 9-27 with that approach because Charlie was over his head on game days an didn't have the staff to support him. Charlie while here built great relationships with local mayors, business leaders, high school coaches etc. How many of those people were with Charlie to support him at the end when we played ODU at home which ended up being our last home game? None, we played in front of our smallest crowd in the on campus stadium. That what made FAU wake up and realize that coaches don't need to be politicians, but they need to win to fill seat and gain fans.

FAU is going to sell out the Navy game on a Friday night that type of excitement is worth it. Every week on this fourm there seems to be a 5 page discussion on FAU and Lane.

Lane's career and reputation is on the line here he has to win and win without trouble or he will never be the head coach at any level ever again.
If he wins for a couple years and bails FAU will get maybe two of the most exciting year in program history and a big buyout.
Hard to beat that.

To be fair, half the posts are you defending Joey Freshwater's honor and calling people salty Tennessee fans.

Yea, because it's true. We have a bunch C-USA "fans" on this forum who still have Peyton Poster hanging in their room.

Now you could have easily slipped "salty" into that sentence, dude. -1

100% I wish Joey Freshwater was in Hattiesburg running the Lane Train on some Slidell Skanks on campus. You can't beat that publicity and honestly, we ALL need something like that to spark a fire in our fanbase. Anybody at USM that says otherwise either has land next to our coach in Lorman, MS or they are "too close" to the program see the forest for the trees. Or, maybe they go to church with Hugh Freeze & are just plain retarded.

Why exactly are you complaining? It's a good thing whether it's positive or negative. Hell, there might be 3 FAU fnas that actively discuss the school in this forum.
