This is a parody of FIU's student newspaper, The Beacon. They use similar style(irreverent among other things) than the now-famous FIU Meme's, so I don't know if there is a relation. One of the "articles" (all of them are made up) they just put up is one about FIU coach Mario Cristobal having "Panther Pride" in a bar fight....A bit extreme, but kind of funny at the same time....

I think they're pretty painfully unfunny. There's potential here, but it's very poorly written.

What makes a parody paper like the Onion great is you could read it and legitimately not know whether it's real or not for at least a few sentences. There is no subtlety with this one.
