Like he tried to do at Miami. But failed.
Like he did at Louisville. After he left.
On Wednesday, the FAU Board of Directors approved funding for some sort of project called Innovation Village in conjunction with a group called Crocker Partners. This is somehow tied into a new home for Schnell’s Fighting Owl pigskinners. But is seen by most observers as a delay of Coach’s pet construction project. (Excuse me for the pithy reference. But it sounds kinda like how a project called Fourth Street Live in conjunction with a group called Cordish is supposed to revitalize downtown Louisville.)
Anyway most FAU football fans see the recent BOD inaction as yet another delay for the stadium, which Schnell hopes to have completed for kickoff of the 2010 season.
But not our Man.
Who popped up but Schnell the Eternal Optimist! When asked about the project, Coach was at his pontificatory best:
“The ball is rolling, and it’s unstoppable.”
