Question from Joe
I'll be to the point. There is talk that FAU should have done better attracting recruits this year with the conference championship and bowl victory.

Is recruiting without a good home field making it difficult to attract top players? That seems to be the key issue. Our neighbors to the south were able to pull in some good players after going 1-23 the past two years. But they have a nice new stadium.

I would like your thoughts and honesty.

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
If you go by Rivals or any other organization anyone could have a good class. We spend a lot of time researching players and recruit them based on grades, character, coach ability, height and speed.

We have never had a class in five years at Miami, 10 years at Louisville, one year at Oklahoma, and eight years here that has been graded higher than a C. We think this class is an A class. We donít give a hoot what Rivals, the Palm Beach Post and the New York Times think. We are the ones that succeed or fail based on our evaluation and selections.
