A few notes.Wednesday was the second of three two-a-day practices for FIU. Night practice is again closed to the media and public.
After practice, Cristobal spoke about the competition between Wesley Carroll (left) and Wayne Younger (right). "Things are getting a little bit more clear. I think it's important to note so no one gets frustrated with the process, it's important for us to get certain things in-house, so our opponents, especially opponent one, has to prepare for either/or. It would do our guys an injustice to come out and give away the advantage we might have, and I don't care if it's an ounce of information. If we can protect that, we will. In terms of the battle, yeah, things are beginning to get a little bit more clear, but the beautiful thing about it is the competition level between those two and the guys around them that are fighting to get the ball is perfect. They're all just battling for both of them."
