SchnellSpeak: 07/25/11

Howard Schnellenberger’s Florida Atlantic Fighting Owls have gone 9-15 the last two seasons.

FAU is picked to finish last this coming season in the Sun Belt.

The Schnell is 77 years old.

But, he’s coming back. At least for the final season of his contract.

Will he take his leave after that?

“The time will come when we’ll all know that it’s better whether I coach or step back and allow somebody to come into this spot. I don’t know when that’s going to happen. It could be sooner. It could be later.”

It’s hard to conceive an improved record for FAU this season. They don’t play at home until October 15, when they christen a new on campus stadium.

Before that they play road games against a murderers row of big names: Florida, Michigan State, Auburn. Plus two league battles at North Texas and Louisiana Lafayette.
