Schnellenberger heading back to Legion Field

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - FAU coach Howard Schnellenberger spent plenty of time this week on The Howard Schnellenberger Show talking bout his homecoming to Birmingham's Legion Field.

Back in the day, Legion Field was the showplace for college football in the South. Schnellenberger spent many weekends coaching there when he was an assistant at Alabama inb the 1960s.

To those who visit Legion Field today, it may look like that was the last time the place was painted. The stadium called The Gray Lady on Graymont has truly seen better days.

Schnellenberger was so moved to be coaching the last game in the Orange Bowl - perhaps the only other stadium that could rival the history of Legion Field - that he dropped to one knee to pay homage to The Big Building in Little Havana when the game vs. FIU in 2007 was over.

Schnellenberger probably wont go that far today - especially since FAU is scheduled to be back here next year, but it's clear he has plenty of prespect for the site of Saturday's game.
