  1. "The stability that it gave us — it's something that as a coach you worry about," Pelini said. "You watch all these moves happening and you know that the move is towards mega conferences, so you want to be relevant in that discussion, and I think Conference USA, having a larger national footprint, is relevant in that discussion ... our association with them provides us with a lot of stability." Pelini's predecessor as coach, Howard Schnellenberger, said that his successor's position is highly enviable. "He's been given another selling point to bring in the best football players he can bring in," Schnellenberger said.

  2. The Owls play North Texas in their second home game of the season Saturday. FAU is 1-3 and lost its only Sun Belt game so far, 31-17, at Middle Tennessee. North Texas has the same overall and conference record, losing 14-7 to Troy on Saturday. Both teams’ lone win is over a Division I-AA opponent. The Mean Green is one of three teams in the Sun Belt averaging fewer than 20 points. FAU is last at 12.8 below South Alabama at 14.2 and North Texas at 19.0 “Offensively they’ve been moving the football,” Pelini said. “They have really good backs. They have a good offensive line. They know who they are and their identity and they put you in some difficult situations with some formations. I do think they’re a quality football team. They could have very easily won that game last week.” Read more: http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/faufocus/2012/09/24/conference-play-will-allow-florida-atlantic-coach-carl-pelini-to-better-gauge-progress/#more-1791
