Question from Shane
Coach,
Keep up the great work. Congrats on the stadium, make us national champions.....I can see it....

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
We are delighted that the Board of Trustees along with the President have authorized us to move ahead with all due haste to provide funding to develop a 30,000 seat open-air stadium, in the heart of the campus at Boca Raton. The stadium will be completed no later than September 1, 2010. (Maybe sooner if the signature gift can be can be secured in the next several months).

Question from Emil

Coach,
Congratulations on FAU's great start this season. I can't really wish you good luck next weekend at Kentucky but I know your team will play well.

I want to thank you for the kindness you showed me when you coached the Louisville Cardinals. I enjoyed being invited to and seeing a couple of the practices.

I hope FAU wins the Sun Belt this season.

Emil

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
I must assume you are a Kentucky graduate or a loyal son of the Common Wealth. So, I excuse from your requirement to cheer for the Owls on this occasion. As always, we are pleased to share citizenship with any other close ties to universities. Remember, we only recognize one alma mater.

Coach Schnellenberger

Question from R L
University of Kentucky grad here...class of 1968. You just seem to keep turning up in Lexington. I hope we are ready for you. Don't want any Appalachian State-type event to take place.

Have no affinity for Florida Atlantic, but I certainly remember you at our Alma Mater. You were great and your coaching career reflects your ability.

May the best team win....

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
Thank you very much for your thoughtfulness. Itís an honor for us to play the Wildcats at this particular time in our development, knowing we are playing the best Kentucky team to take the field in Commonwealth Stadium in the last 20 years. It is our goal to play an error-free game, much like Kentucky has done, get some turnovers and have a knock-down drag out game in the last five minutes of the fourth quarter.

Coach Schnellenberger

Question from Stewart
Coach Schnellenberger,
As a University of Kentucky alum, and a rabid UK fan, I would like to welcome you to Commonwealth Stadium Saturday, where your name and number are permanently retired thanks to your All-American efforts as a player here. I am from Louisville, and I admired the rebuilding program you undertook at U of L. Regardless of the outcome of the game Saturday, I (and many other UK fans) will be there cheering for you, a hall of fame coach if there ever was one. It will be great to see you on the sidelines.

Thanks,

Stewart

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
Beverlee shares in my gratitude for the well wishes by so many Wildcat fans. Itís an honor to be playing the University of Kentucky in its finest hour. We trust that we will have a competitive contest.

Coach Schnellenberger
