JONESBORO, Arkansas -- Welcome to Jonesboro, Arkansas on a cold night with temperatures in the 40's. Your Panthers (1-5, 1-2 Sun Belt) are looking for their second win of the season and in the Sun Belt tonight against the Arkansas State Red Wolves (1-4, 0-2 SBC), who are also looking for their second win of the season, but first conference win.
Pre-game note for you: FIU quarterback Paul McCall, who sprained his foot in practice Thursday, has gone through all the pre-game warmups. He is a game-time decision to start. While PMC is a huge part to FIU's success, we all know that the Panthers D needs to show up here in Jonesboro for FIU to fly home happy later tonight.
**So that this question is not asked 500 times during the LIVE BLOG:
BLOG: right here.
VIDEO: Arkansas State's website has a video feed at: AStateRedwolves.com. The price for the game is $7.95, but make sure to cancel your subscription after the game unless you want to watch ASU sports for the rest of the month.
RADIO: 1080 AM (If the internet feed does not work, don't ask me, because I have no affiliation with 1080 AM. Call 1080 AM at 305-644-0800 or 305-644-1080 and let them have it)
A few reminders for all GPP LIVE BLOGS:
1) The size of the LIVE BLOG window is at its maximum, but the way the blog program works by making the window larger it takes away the scroll button. However, you can still view previous comments by using your arrow keys.
2) There are only 25 spots to be an unmoderated commentator which allows you to post comments without my approval.
If you are 1 of the first 25 to log-on tonight AND I think you will contribute some worthwhile comments then I will go ahead and approve you as unmoderated commentator.
3) After the 25 spots are taken up, I then have to approve each comment from each reader. So if your comment takes a minute or so to show up it's because I'm busy either writing down the previous play for my game notes, working on the FIU/ASU notebook for Sunday's paper or posting on the blog at the moment. At that time, I am not able to publish what you posted, but I will eventually get to it.
Getting ready for kickoff here, let's go blogging....
