  1. Mean Green Nation, I posted a few weeks back about a free tailgate held from noon-7:30 before this Thursday's FAU game. We will be located in the Blue Lot with a free drink courtesy of Tito's. The tailgate will be hosted by Road to CFB and Tailgate Nation. Stop on by to meet us, have a free drink, talk Mean Green Football, and have a great time. Both Road to CFB and Tailgate Nation are giving away some free swag as well. All are welcome! Road to CFB follows the journey of experiencing a game day at every FBS stadium, and Apogee Stadium marks my 26th in the past two years. To le
  2. BOCA RATON — After months of searching, Lane Kiffin has finally found his graduate transfer quarterback. Former Arkansas and SMU quarterback Rafe Peavey has officially joined the Owls as a grad transfer and is immediately eligible to play. Peavey was cleared shortly before Tuesday’s practice and took reps with the first, second, and third-teams. “We’re always looking for people,” Kiffin said, “and we had looked for a while for the right fit of a quarterback due to numbers once Jason (Driskel) left.” Peavey, 22, was a perfect four-of-four for 116 yards and a touchdown in three ga
  3. FRISCO, Texas – It only took one season, but Lane Kiffin changed the dynamic of Conference USA. The Florida Atlantic head coach enters his second year at the helm in Boca Raton as the reigning conference champion, the first for the program. Those surrounding the 14-team league expected Kiffin to have an immediate impact, but no one could’ve imagined the Owls going undefeated in C-USA play en route to winning the title. “I don’t think we surprised ourselves, I think we surprised everybody else,” Kiffin told media members Thursday on the second day of Conference USA Media Days at The S
  4. HUNTINGTON - On paper, it appears that Florida Atlantic should run through Conference USA in 2018. It isn't an unfounded thought, considering the Owls' tightest football game the last three months of the season was a 30-25 home win over Marshall in which the Owls used their defense to force turnovers and keep the Thundering Herd at arm's length, leading for two scores for much of the contest with the Herd battling to get back in it. For all intents, THAT was a young Florida Atlantic team. Young talent, new coaching staff, new schemes. Now, head coach Lane Kiffin has expecta

  7. Does my $50 a year not afford at least one or two Alumni Association people to go to the CUSA Championship game and setup a little tailgate? Does that mean @FAU Connoisseur is running the un-official UNT Alumni tailgate? New Orleans Bowl grade alumni association support... :-(

  9. BOCA RATON North Texas head coach Seth Littrell knows firsthand the challenges that come with turning a dismal program around. Two years after inheriting an 11-1 program, Littrell’s Mean Green (9-3, 7-1) prepare to take on the Florida Atlantic Owls (9-3, 8-0) in Saturday’s Conference USA title game. Speaking to the media in a teleconference call on Tuesday, the third-year coach expressed his respect for the job FAU coach Lane Kiffin has done. “I think he’s done an unbelievable job,” Littrell said of Kiffin. “It’s a challenge getting somewhere, building relationships, set
  10. BOCA RATON For the first time since 2008, Florida Atlantic is preparing for postseason play. Though FAU (9-3, 8-0) clinched bowl eligibility on Nov. 3 and a spot in the Conference USA championship game earlier this month, the Owls are now officially getting ready for their first postseason game since a 24-21 win in Detroit over Central Michigan on Dec. 26, 2008 in the Motor City Bowl. FAU completed the fourth 8-0 season in C-USA history with last Saturday’s 31-12 win over Charlotte. Saturday’s C-USA title game pits FAU against North Texas (9-3, 7-1), a team the Owls

  12. BOCA RATON – DeAndre McNeal sees this week’s match-up between FAU and North Texas as more than a battle between two first-place Conference USA teams. It’s also a game for bragging rights between the titans of high school football. “Basically, they say Florida and Texas have the best high school football, so now you’ve got a team from Florida and a team from Texas playing against each other,” McNeal said. “It will be a great experience. I’m excited for it.” North Texas, located in the Dallas suburb of Denton, lists a roster overwhelmingly populated by players from the Lone Star S
  13. I may be getting ahead of myself, but is FAU really any good? Yeah they won big on ODU 58-28, but they did it mainly on the ground. Driskel was only 13/22 for 97 yards and an INT and no TDS. They ran the ball down ODU's throat on the way to 453 rushing yards. They had a nearly 200 yard rusher in Singletary, and another 100 yard rusher in Howell Jr. Driskel even rushed for 92 on his own. They have losses to Navy. Wisconsin, and a 3-3 Buffalo. However, ESPN FPI only gives us a 27.2% chance of winning and has FAU favored in every game the rest of the way except against LA Tech, but it is pretty m
  14. Kiffen is loading up his roster with lots of talent. This is the way you win in CUSA. They are my darkhorse to win the East. https://www.si.com/college-football/2017...s-pitt-fsu
  15. I haven't really been following the Lane Kiffin at FAU. But does anyone know if he will hire his father again to be his defensive coordinator or as a defensive assistant? Monte is currently a defensive assistant with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

  17. IRVING, Texas — For every problem there is a solution. This is how Charlie Partridge operates. When the Plantation native was hired to take over the FAU football program in December, there was a need to embrace what could be. The assistants he hired led to high-end recruits such as St. Thomas Aquinas running back Jordan Scarlett committing to the program. His quick imprint built upon the Owls' four-game winning streak to end what was a hellish season filled with departures and rumor. Some of that momentum, or so it seemed, disappeared. Scarlett and another high-end recruit, Miramar
  18. He's having a great season with DT and the offense; and he knows the Florida recruiting from his days at USF. I certainly don't want to lose him and I know it's premature but can't help wondering if he gets some consideration for this job.
  19. HUNTINGTON -- Moving to a new conference is hard for any team to take on. Moving to a bigger conference after a run in the Sun Belt in which a team has won just 13 games makes the task unenviable to anyone. Yet, that is the plight of Florida Atlantic in 2013. Not only do the Owls move from the Sun Belt to Conference USA, they do so knowing they will have just one game in Boca Raton, Fla., in the first half of the season. Sure, they get a pair of in-state games, but a pair of roadies against Miami and South Florida aren't exactly the type of home lovin' the Owls were looking for
  20. BOCA RATON – The cake tasted sweet, and the banner and TV screens looked professional, but the football fans in attendance at the party celebrating FAU's official entrance into Conference USA were really looking forward to was the fashion show. Near the end of the party senior defensive back Keith Reaser emerged from behind a stairwell door sporting blue pants, a blue jersey and a blue helmet that featured the winged FAU logo on the right side and his number 3 on the left other. The pants and jersey had been worn by FAU players before. For the first time in the program history, the Owls' h
