M.I.K.I.F.W. Update; FIU Voter Revealed; 1st Hoops Practice

T.Y. Hilton and the M.I.K.I.F.W. Mikifw
sat out practice again on Wednesday. Goodbye did some light jogging, stretching and exercise bike.

Here's MC's take on Goodbye on Wednesday: "He seems a little bit better. With an injury like that, when you get treatment sometimes it's every two or three hours you feel a little bit better, you feel a little bit worse. If he can practice, great. If he cannot practice, then other guys have to continue to step up."

Good news on the injury front: running back Darriet Perry, center Brad Serini and receiver Marquis Rolle all practiced and should be ready to go for Saturday.

NOW YOU KNOW

Some of you were wondering who was the Sun Belt coach who voted FIU to win the conference title in theBlake preseason? It was Troy head coach Larry Blakeney (right). Trojans beat writer Drew Champlin from the Dothan Eagle asked Blakeney about FIU after the vote and these were Blakeney's thoughts as Drew told me:

"He's aware at how much talent FIU had returning and coming in, and knew how fast the Golden Panthers are. If there's a team that can match Troy or even outrun Troy, it's FIU. Plus, FIU has Troy at home so the schedule played up well."

FIRST BASKETBALL PRACTICE

Your 2009-2010 FIU basketball team makes it debut on Saturday at 12 noon as the Panthers open practice under first-year coach Isiah Thomas (left). There is no midnight madness and practice is open to the media only and for just the first 10 minutes. Will be there and have a story for you in Sunday's paper and Isiah some blog material.

Will start having some posts on the hoops team soon. The team roster is out on the FIU sports website. You can check it out here: FIU hoops roster

Not much size on this year's team, which could lead to a similar season as the first seasons for MC and TT. Newcomers Jeremy Allen (Central Michigan) and Brandon Moore (Arkansas) have to sit out a season, because of NCAA transfer rules.

Q&A

FIUGP: Pete, What's the reasoning behind the "blackout" game? Aren't Troy's colors "black snd red"? I noticed the coaches sporting black polo's on the sideline during the ULM game. Is FIU looking to make a color change to "black and gold"?

PP: Blackout games are becoming a tradition around college football and now it's FIU's turn. FIU is not looking to change to Pittsburgh Steelers colors.

KJHarris02: Does anyone know which radio station is airing the FIU game?

PP: Game is on 790 AM.

ridgepanther: BTW TY does not practice and MC says he will not play if he does not practice, the next second Serini misses practice and he will? can you esplain plees?

PP: Serini was expected to and did practice on Wednesday and that's why "he would be good to go on Saturday" when that was said on Tuesday.

** If we had a post/comment of the week award -- sort of like a Player of the Week like they hand out inComm different sports -- then FIUfantastic is this week's winner.

Like I wrote in the last post, when I get on-line each day I will take care of the abusive, vulgar comments each time you post one. However, for you FIU fans read FIUfantastic's following comment and try to understand that you are not the only ones that care about FIU:
