Have they started the game clock yet?

Can't disagree with anything you wrote, never mind. Didn't say I was happy about it. And yeah, I'd hate to be one of those kids recruited in the last couple years...for this.

All of them, Turner, Rosenberg, Garcia, knew what they'd be dealing with this year with this group of kids. They're just treating this year as an extended training camp. From that perspective, every decision at FIU makes sense. It's why Turner is sticking with his system, sticking with Medlock, why he (Turner) is just trying to get through these games without injury while playing out the string. They don't care about wins and losses this year. They probably barely even pay attention to the score. That's why Garcia won't get rid of Turner and Rosenberg won't get rid of Garcia. This year was written off before it even started. You can tell from the whole game day experience down there. Who knows if they're going to give Turner a couple years to see if he can turn it around or if they're going to clean house. If some up and comer falls in their lap they'll take him, otherwise they'll probably just cross their fingers with Turner for another year...or two. Let's be real, do you think they're going to be directed by a couple dozen fans? Expectations were so low for this year that I don't think anyone at FIU is shocked with how things are going. It's exactly how the envisioned it would play out. Everyone wants them to blow up the program...I think they feel that that's what they did by getting rid of Mario. Time will tell if Garcia is next under the bus. They're treating FIU football like it's back to square one. Hard to take as one of those couple dozen die-hards, but there it is.

I agree with you Diagodog. This whole season really has the feel of having been written off before it started. Like changes will be coming next year. Let's hope someone over there knows what they're doing. If, behind the scenes, it looks like it does on the surface...uh-oh.

Leave it to Buc Nasty to realize what escapes a lot of so-called FIU fans. Pretty spot on. Love FIU, love my Panthers, but we don't deserve DJN on this beat. Team DJN

Agree with you DJN; and with DC 2010. The radio thing is an embarrassment. No one even talked about it this year. Just totally agree with your comments as far as getting our name out there. Not a good reflection on PG or the athletic department.

If half of it is true it makes Cristobal's firing easier to stomach. If M.C. was still here and this came out, our small fanbase would be calling for him to be publicly sacrificed. Moving on; Turner, let's see what you can do.

I could think of one or two higher profile people I wish they'd dismiss...

Stopped showering you with accolades because your stuff is consistently good, but well, there you go. And that Sunblazer thing, kind of intriguing. I've always thought "Panthers" was kind of meh. They aught to start selling some Sunblazer throwback stuff and see how it does. Like you say, at least it's unique.

Great write up, as usual. Thanks Pete.
O.K., back out onto the ledge I go.

If nothing else, MC brought attention to the program. Seems like now we've just got an obscure coach to match our obscure school. As was said above, I'll give the guy a chance, but judging from the national press, the buzz around this guy is...not much.

DJN, you've made enough trips around the sun to know what you're dealing with here. Keep on keepin' on my man. We're lucky to have you here.

Just give us someone who believes and is going to leave the program better than they found it.
