Question from Sammy
As a local youth, I am pretty excited about the new stadium being built. I am a big fan of UF and FAU. The new stadium will bring the national spotlight that FAU needs to jumpstart its future in the high ranks of college.

Itís very exciting. I can even wait until 2010. Thank you.

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
Well we really appreciate your excitement about our program and you are right. The stadium will give us new emphasis and will bring all of the people from Boca and Palm Beach campus together on our campus.

Question from Ross
I have had my eye on the information concerning the new stadium and I believe it is something that cannot be put on hold. And so my question is this; do you believe it will open in 2010.

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
I have every confidence that it will be ready for our opening game against Michigan State. When the announcement is made the building of the stadium will go very quickly.

Question from Joe
This year more than any, the penalties and personal fouls, particularly the personal fouls seem to be on the rise. This is a veteran team. Why are they so out of control this year? I know your answer will be theyíre not out of control but we are watching the games. We can see this.

Dropped passes seem to be the other curse this year. What is happening?

Response from Head Coach Howard Schnellenberger
I have said from the beginning, our penalty level is too high. I donít think that they control the situation. Face mask is the most difficult penalty in football to police correctly. It is an involuntary action that happens and before they can turn loose of the mask the flag is thrown. Dropped passes will always be there with you. It is unfortunate that they happen at a critical time. The number of dropped passes is about what it was a year ago.
