Saturday’s Daily Briefing: Now the real work begins to fill FAU’s stadium
FAU coach Howard Schnellenberger had the right gameplan for Friday.
A. Attend ground-breaking
B. Revel in accomplishment 13 years in the making for five minutes
C. Get back to work by holding practice
Friday’s ground-breaking ceremony for the 30,000-seat stadium was a grand event, but as much as the FAU big-wigs would like to spend the next few days patting themselves on the back, there isn’t time for that.
Like Schnellenberger saw, it’s time to get to work.
And not only on the construction of the $70 million future home of the Owls, but there needs to be effort quickly to make sure each and every one of those nice red and blue seats is full a year from now.
It may seem like a long way away, but believe me, Oct. 15 2011 will be here before you know it.
Will FAU be ready? We’ll see.
