I watched most of the game. The team played very tough, but got very sloppy on offense at times, especially at the end of the first half. FIU did force a lot of turnovers (18), but also turned the ball over 17 times themselves. Can't do that. The team also shot 7/26 from 3 (27%), which is pretty bad. The defense is smothering and will keep them in basically any C-USA game, but for them to turn the corner, the offense has to pick up.

Agreed, I was pretty impressed, I thought the defense was definitely better than last year. It seems more organized and there were a lot less easy lay ups than last year, which is good. Looks like the St. Johns transfer didn't get his clearance yet but I feel that's our biggest rotational need, another large body to throw out there. I'm pretty excited to see how this season plays out as I think we will be competitive in CUSA. Unfortunately the non-conference schedule is a joke, but what are you going to do.

Go F I U!

We lost a close one, but had the leas in the first half for a while. I'm impressed, they looked good. Plus, I love the new uniforms. Never was a fan of the gold unis. Hope we go with mostly blue uniforms this season.

This team should make some noise in the conference. We are underrated by our conference peers.

I really dig the blue uni's, too. Glad to see there's a "Panther head only" trend going. I think that looks awesome.

For some reason, my ESPN feed was giving me hell watching this game. I couldn't see any of it. :roll:

I'll be very curious to see how FIU develops this year. I really think we've found a gem in Ballard. Hopefully he sticks for a while.
