FAU Sports


The final post: we're moving


This will be the final post on this blog, as the Sun Sentinel's FAU blog is migrating to our official web platform.

You can find Hoot-N-Holler, the Sun Sentinel's new FAU blog at http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/fau-owls/fau-blog/.

The new blog will have facebook-enabled commenting, no captcha (!) and far more ways for me to get you new content. If you have any problems, or recommendations, don't hesitate to let me know. I'm @dkurtenbach on twitter and always available at dkurtenbach@tribune.com.

Ronnie Scott becomes FAU's third 2013 commit


Ronnie Scott, the Chamberlain (Tampa) defensive back told the Tampa Bay Times yesterday that he's committed to being an Owl.

Scott is transitioning to quarterback ahead of his senior season, but the five-foot-ten athlete was recruited as a cornerback.

He's not ranked by any of the major scouting sites, and only held one opposing offer, from FAMU. We'll see if Scott jumps onto any other school's radars now that he's committed.

Nothing new on Melvin German, Duron Carter


Sorry for the lack of content lately, I've been cleaning up an investigation I did last year and it's been eating into my blog time. I promise I didn't forget about you.

You'll read in tomorrow's paper all about that. You'll also find in tomorrow's Sun Sentinel that there's no new word on Melvin German or Duron Carter. I don't expect word to come down for a while, either. From what I have been told by sources, it doesn't look good for German, and Pelini isn't going to relay bad information to me. So here we are.

Feeling lucky? Owls have longshot odds at winning Sun Belt.


Thirty-to-one.

That's the chance the Owls have of winning the Sun Belt conference, according to the sportsbook 5Dimes.

If you're so inclined (and have absolutely zero financial or business connection to the FAU athletic program) those odds would offer the second-largest return in the Sun Belt Conference. Only South Alabama has longer odds, at 80-1.

There are six teams with less than 10-1 odds to win the Sun Belt, making it one of, if not the singular most wide-open conferences in the nation.
