Let's go Panthers!!!

I'll be honest. I don't expect to win this game. Few of us would think that FIU will win, but, let's make this an interesting contest. Let's make UCG sweat. Let's put on a show for the nationally televised audience. If FIU can play clean and play their best, we should give the canes a scare

Right now the line is 24.5 so let's cover that and some!

Let’s go FIU! I’m ready to go to the game and support MY university as I always do. Let’s show support to Butch and our boys wherever you are. Interesting week ahead for us.

We are with you, FIU Football!!!

Been waiting for this game for a while now.

In 2006 we barely had the talent to compete with them (as a whole); but the familiarity/competitiveness of the players had us playing up to the competition.
Yes, the game ended 35-0; but it was 14-0 at the time of the brawl (or close to that)

FIU Suspended 8 guys immediately; imagine 8 critical guys gone with marginal or young talent behind them on the 2-Deep. We had zero chance the rest of the way.
the following year we lost a much closer game 29-7 or something like that.

I suspect our guys will be fired up to prove they belong and play up to the competition.
UM is a false No. 21 in my opinion, they have a huge inconsistency issue at QB (yes we do too).

I do think their WR's can beat our DB's deep and we will see if UM's QB can hit them (the guy vs LSU or the guy vs Toledo).
If we play safe they will kill us in the zone gaps....we are screwed in both those scenarios.

So I say blitz the crap out of Rozier and trust we can make tackles.

I worry about their DL speed on obvious passing situations, but I think we can run on them. If we dont get down too far early we can keep this $$$$ close.

I love these weekly talk shows with Butch. Great work AJ and company.

When asked about other G5 teams beating P5 teams, Butch says "Those teams aren't Miami." Yikes.

Also, I'm seeing a lot of FIU chatter on twitter. I think this game will be really helpful in getting the program some (hopefully good) exposure.

Well, he is right. UCG is a top 25 program. I Don't' think there's a P5 Top 25 team losing to a G5 team yet (this year).

Relax, Butch is a master of coach speak!!

On Saturday , wear your Blue and Gold proudly!!! I’m pumped for the game. Hopefully we keep it close going into the fourth. A couple of turnovers from our D and it could be an interesting game. Go FIU !!!
