BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) There was a banner on the Florida Atlantic practice field commemorating the team's accomplishments from last season, which included an 11-3 record, a Conference USA championship and a blowout victory in a bowl game.
That banner is no more.
FAU coach Lane Kiffin ordered it removed from the fence adjacent to the field before the Owls started fall training camp on Friday. He sees little, if any, reason to see, think about or revisit anything that happened last season. It's a new year and a new team, and he wants his players looking forward - not looking back, not even at banners.
