Owls play soft as pillows
It's a good bet FAU won't be staying at the Marriott in Prattville, Ala. on its next swing through Alabama.
The team stayed at that hotel twice - and both times set records for the most yards given up in a game.
The first time they stayed there, the Owls gave up 622 yards to UAB earlier this month. Two weeks later, they allowed 651 yards to Troy.
The hotel has plush, soft pillows, but that doesn't mean games against the Blazers and Trojans should have been treated by the defense like pillow fights.
It's time for a new team hotel - maybe one near a railroad track that keeps players up all night, so they'll have a mean streak when the game starts.Owl Links
