Found February 19, 2013 on The Victory Formation:
The Florida Atlantic University Owls are slowly building something down in Boca Raton, Florida. The program is only 10 years old, and in that time they have moved into FCS, built a stadium, became the earliest team to play in bowl game and produced NFL players like Rusty Smith and this years All-Pro RB Alfred Morris. Not bad for a commuter school. They are leaving the Sun Belt and joining Conference USA next year, which is a major step up in competition. They have announced that they have sold the naming rights to their new digs for about $5 million, to the GEO group, which is headed by a wealthy FAU alum and board member named George Zoley. What does the GEO group do? They privatize and run prisons, mostly right here in Florida. I wonder if they will give out FAU prison garb to all the Gators that pass through the gates. The nickname for the stadium should also be fun, The Rock, The Jail or The Prison all come to mind. My vote however is for The Real Big House. H/T Owl Access
