What's Lincoln Thinkin': Kiffin has been a big winner so far

Lane Kiffin

Friday the "Lane Kiffin Era" officially begins at FAU, as the Owls host Navy in their opener. And while there are still games to play, the hire to this point has all ready proven to be a smashing success.

"This is one of the biggest games they've ever had here," says running back Greg Howell. "Well, starting now. We're going to make it bigger."

FAU's opener is providing national buzz - Up until this day Kiffin has done exactly what he was brought to boca raton to do.

He attracted high profile talent, via a top signing class and top juco transfers.

He's provided national headlines to help spread the notoriety of the FAU program.

And he's getting more eyes on his team - the opener was moved to Friday night to be on national TV, and the game is reportedly close to being sold out.

Now all he has to do is win games - but Kiffin himself says, not so fast.

"I understand that expectations are high, but it takes awhile to gel."

Even with that being said, and a tough Navy team coming to town, Kiffin has done as he promised so far.

All that's left is to win.
