Safe Season Finale

Mm_2 Looks like the Golden Panthers will have both their starting safeties back for the season finale against Western Kentucky on Saturday at FIU Stadium.

Marshall McDuffie, left, (shoulder) practiced without a problem and without an orange non-contact jersey on Tuesday. Jeremiah Weatherspoon, right, (hamstring) also practiced some, but not the Jw_2 entire workout.

MC said MM would start on Saturday and JW "looks like he's ready to go."

Don't bother with the hindsight and the safeties, unless you have a DeLorean. The 2008 Shula Bowl is over, let's all move on. Time to finish 5-7.

Here is MC's take on the mood of the team regarding the FAU loss and Tuesday's practice:

Mc "We're angry. We're upset. We want to play football again. We would have liked to have played again and again right after the FAU game. We had things right in our grasp and we let it get away. It's a pain that I think is going to pay dividends in the long run with some of these young cats growing up and remembering the sounds of FAU celebrating in their locker room [FIU and FAU's locker rooms at Dolphin Stadium are about 15 feet apart]. They will remember that pain walking off the field  when that Shula Trophy could have come over to our side for the first time in a long time. It will pay off in the long run and right now it's a good pain that we feel and we'll be able to use it on Saturday against a dangerous Western Kentucky that should have beat FAU."
