Just saw Butch Davis on ESPN doing an interview. Great stuff.

Wish we would've beat them by more but regardless, a win is a win.

I do agree you have to give it at least 2 years for a coach to really be measured. I used this argument in the past with Turner (even though Turner was just no good), but George O'Leary went 0-11 with his first season at UCF before going 8-5 the very next. They went on to have ups and down but eventually became a relevant bowl contender with lots of spotlight beating BYU in a bowl game.

Not saying this will happen to us, but it puts things into perspective that things take time. Davis has a proven track record, something Turner didn't have. So keep your heads up guys, go FIU!

A win is a win is a win, especially after such a trying week. I couldn't watch the BD interview on ESPN.

Guys, be safe and smart. Godspeed.

Go Panthers!

BD's comments are top-class. At the end of the day, there are a lot more important things going right now on than football and it is something of a miracle that the game was even played and that our team was able to focus at all on the game. Whatever else might happen this season, kudos to them, the coaches, and--yes--the higher administration for this trip and the win.


It's great to have to have leadership on this team (again?). Even watching Butch talk about things not related to football makes me proud.

Yup. This season probably won't go as well as I'd hoped, and possibly next season as well, but this isn't a one day turn around. We've been a really bad team for a long time. ...But, if someone can fix it, I'm betting it's BD.

So, Joshua Little didn't need a redshirt this year? Awesome.

Does anyone have any insight into which players didn't travel?

Butch is coaching a team full of bad habits. some kids are just very good and will overcome bad coaching but this team has a problem with beating itself. Butch will fix it. he has an eye for detail and he is VERY competitive.

Maybe Josh Little or someone else uses that number. Gotta be a mistake.
