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.

    FAU's class is almost full. The Owls are bringing in four players for an official visit this weekend. Three are already committed.

    The regular FAU fans should easily make the trip to Orlando. I-95 ,then west. Very easy drive. I will go for sure.

    UCF has a lot of alumni in South Florida. I bet that the visiting side will be packed - provided the Knights are still playing good football in 2019.

    I'm up for a road trip to Orlando! And it will be great to finally get the Golden Knights down here. I wonder how many fans they will bring? ...
