Here are the new threads unveiled today at FIU's Media Day. You folks take a good look at them and let's hear what you think.
The gold in the uniform is found on the shoulders and on the stripes down the sides of the pants. The Golden Panthers debuted just the blue tops and white pants today, but like I wrote in the previous blog they'll have 4 choices come game day: 1) blue top/white pants; 2) white top/white pants; 3)white top/blue pants; 4) blue top/blue pants.
The word "Panthers" is just below the neck line on the front of the uniform and if you can enlarge these photos then you can notice that "Panthers" is in the same font from last season, which gives it a jungle-look. It was the same font that they had "Golden Panthers" in the end zones of the old FIU Stadium. BTW, they laid out the new turf at the new FIU Stadium this morning.
Got to get back to hammering out these FIU football preview stories for the MH (deadline is Sunday). You can check out in tommorrow's MH a story on the FIU receivers.
Be back on here with a blog full of everything from today's practice and tommorrow (Saturday's) 2-a-day. First practice is at 8 a.m. tommorrow morning. Second practice at 4 p.m.
