Talk about an overnight culture change. Lane Kiffin’s been in Boca for a cup of coffee and suddenly people are chomping at the bit to actually walk through the gates of FAU Stadium (How is it not Schnellenberger Stadium?). Three men (the pussy slaying posse seen above) were arrested Monday for perusing around the humid tundra, enjoying a few adult beverages, and willingly “hanging out” at the home of both the Owls and a currently unsponsored Bowl Game without the allure of a free Hooters wings promotion.
From ABC Local 10:
Timothy Foo, 30, Christian Klein, 23, and Jesse Meacham, 21, were arrested on burglary and theft charges.
Foo told Ponce that he entered the stadium after visiting hours and remained there so he could “hang out and drink,” the report said. Foo also said that he got the beers from a refrigerator on the third floor of the Martin F. and Jane Greenberg Foundation Tower, Ponce wrote.
Police also found marijuana during a search of Foo’s belongings, Ponce wrote. Foo also faces charges of possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
That how you do your fans, FAU? Suddenly a few dudes show interest in the team, want to get a lay of the land before Fall, break in some seats while knocking back a couple cold ones and a few bowl rips and you lock them up? That ain’t right, man. Now are these the ideal faces that you want to represent Owl Nation? Far from it. They look more like the type of dudes that host a Big Foot and UFO conspiracy theory Soundcloud podcast than watch football on Saturdays. But when you’re not a perennial powerhouse program like in-conference rival Western Kentucky, you take what you can get. This one incident could have easily lost you three lifelong diehards.
Still, it’s incredible to finally see the Kiffin Effect in full-force. Who knows, maybe with a game or two under his belt, ol’ Joey Freshwater might even be able to entice a local assisted retirement community or the herbal tea company that his Instagram model flavor of the week slings on her page to shell out for the field’s naming rights. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. He’s just a football coach, after all, not a miracle worker. And something tells me he’s more of a house renting guy in Boca, not a buyer..
