The “House That Schnellenberger Built” finally gets christened with a proper name, Schnellenberger Field. The hoots from the Land of Owl were loud and clear early last year when the announcement was made that GEO Group was going to drop 6 large ($6,000,000) for the naming rights, only to have the offer withdrawn on April Fools Day when the FAU administration had an “oh s**t what have we done” moment. From “Owlcatraz” to Schnelley Field—-has a nice ring to it.
Somewhere down the line naming rights will be sold, but the field itself will be called “Schnellenberger Field” for posterity. Coach, congratulations for all you have done and for this well deserved and overdue honor.
