First of all, I hope all my fellow Panthers are okay after the passage of Hurricane Irma. I'm guessing many of you are still without power. I wish you all speedy recovering from the storm.

FIU travels to Indiana this week to take on the Hoosiers. FIU played Indiana close through 3 quarters last year after blowing it in the 4th. One year later, FIU is a 25 point underdog..... Yikes. Is the team even back in Miami after playing Alcorn in Birmingham?

Indiana played Ohio St. tight through the first half before losing in week 1. Indiana then beat Virginia on the road last week 34-17. Indiana had a new QB (Ramsey) step up on the second half who looks to be more of a dual-threat type of QB. We all know how FIU does with those... Considering how the team has played thus far, I'm not getting my hopes up.

Game will be broadcast on the Big Ten Network at 3:30pm ET. Go Panthers.

Watching the ohio state highlights, Cobb and Lagow are going to tear up the FIU secondary. Hope I am wrong

It's not going to be pretty. I'm pretty sure, it might be UCF like. Go F I U!

Tim Reynolds saying it won't be played in 2017. Very weird. Is the team still in Alabama? Looks like we avoided the butt whooping...



Edit: I guess the team still is in Alabama:

Apparently UCF and USF also postponed their games this week.

Hope everybody is ok! Despite the damage, looks like we dodged a bullet.

The IU game im afraid was going to be a pounding - Irma like. Going into conference play at Rice might give us a better chance at some confidence and momentum. Possibly get over .500. How often do we get to say that?

Lets see what happens.

Yeah, I was afraid of that game as well. Rice is a game that is winnable, let's hope. Go F I U!

Hopefully we're still practicing (since we clearly need it) even if we're not playing the game. Every ounce of experience for our underclassman is important.

Speaking of damage, saw a tweet that the stadium had some damage. Any one know the extent?
