Monday FIU Football Odds and Ends

  • FIU returned to the practice field Monday to finalize preparation for Sunday's Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. While the majority of Monday's session was dedicated to Toledo, there was time for a little fun late in the workout. Thanks to the 15 extra practices afforded to FIU as a bowl team, the Panthers held their second Scout Bowl of the fall - with the result the same as first time around. The defense bested the offense, making stops and third-and-fourth-and-1.
  • Tony Egues, FIU's director of football operations, plans to leave the team after one season with the Golden Panthers. Egues has given the team his notice, but will remain in place through FIU's appearance in the Little Caesars Pizza Bowl. Before joining the Panthers, Egues had spent 19 seasons in the Miami Dolphins' equipment and operations departments.
  • FIU will leave for Detroit on a chartered flight Thursday morning, and waste no time getting acclimated to Ford Field. The Panthers have a 2 p.m. press conference at the stadium, followed by practice.

I will be in Detroit cheering the FIU Panthers on!!! GO Panthers, GO Joey #86

Joey Harris sucks.

FIWho?

You're a bad person.

kjharris02 is Joey Harris' mom.

Even bad people consider you a dirt bag for dissing a player's mom.

For the record, Joey Harris can crush you with little effort...he's a big boy.

You are an internet tuff guy aka weasel.

FIWho is a total IDIOT! He is your typical Miami Dade Dropout that NEVER made it to FIU and can't afford UCG, and will check the FIU Blog every 2 hours just to see who he can hate on.. Like i said before KEEP HATING because we will keep WINNING!!

BTW nice job on picking up a coach from a Big time Power House (Temple).. Ha ha ha..

Can you even afford to go and watch "your" team get spanked by Notre Dame.. We will be in Detroit chearing on OUR Golden Panthers..

Go FIU

Whatever FIWho....u can't spoil my happiness! Very proud of those kids on that team and congrats to all the coaches/staff of FIU!! Can't wait for the game!!! Whooo hooo!! (ps: gpantera is correct, Joey is a Big Boy and can squash u like a little bug!! )

lol you tell him kjharris02.... love those internet tough guys

Wow FIWho...KJ Harris is a class act and doesn't deserve this from you or anyone. That's a new low, picking on a player's mother because she's proud of her son...unreal.

And he would work you.

If you don't want senseless trash talking of your son, don't go on a blog and try to live vicariously through him. Or at least pretend to be the mother of someone who sees the field once or twice a game.

Only person who sucks if FIWho's mother!

I would know

FIWho? are you serious, she has every right to be proud of the fact that her son is playing Division I football, something I'm sure you never have or will accomplish. To take shots at her like that is totally uncalled for and I wish you wouldn't hide behind your posting name so that everyone could know who the real dirt ball is. On a more important note, hope everyone has a great holiday season, and hope to see some of you up in Detroit for our first bowl game.

I've caught as many balls for FIU as Joey Harris has.

FIWho catches the balls .. via his boca!

Sorry, I went to an English speaking university, I don't know what that means.

Thanks everyone for your support.....Can't wait to be in Detroit watching the Panthers beat up on the Rockets! (i don't care what FIWho says, everyone has the right to voice they're opinions...but i know what i know and no body can take that away from me! I have a great son and i am proud of him!!!!!!!!!!!! and i don't care how many times he plays, it is most important that he gets his college degree! )

So which English speaking university did you go? Oh yeah..... "Who?"niversity of Miami-Dade at Oral Gables.....

Get a job dude..... Don't you have $100,000 student loans to pay off?

and FIUWho Do u personally know Joey??? if u don't u have no right to comment about him.....just saying!

Wow...

I guess this stuff is entertaining, but lay off KJ. She's a real FIU panther supporter and we all appreciate that.

Anyway...

Wow, this takes the hating to a whole other level.

I may need to hang up my gators and retire.

Hate, hate, hate.

Oh, and most kids that go to UM don't need to take out student loans to pay for it - and if they do and still decide to go there then they're idiots.

Hate.

FIWHO,

It means you catch balls with your mouth...

I know Joey! He a guy that switch from TE to DE just to help the team get better. He's a fighter cause he could easily have gone to one of these no name schools can start. He a friend cause he help make players around him better even if it means he make the player in front of him better. That's why Joey Harris has a championship ring and one of the only panther to play in a bowl game. How many people here can say they have a championship ring for anything? To Mrs. Harris you should be proud, played with your son and he is a great young man that deserves this.

Thanks OD...

He did go to a no name school, as did you.

But obviously you also went to FIU for your education and not just to be a bench warmer with Joey so I'm glad to see that you learned to write so eloquently and with such grammatical accuracy in your time there.

U can't hide your fear. U scared.

FIUWHO, your probably a #@!$ing couch potato, sitting in front of your computer just waiting to pick an argument... I wish you would stop being a freakin #@$%y and say your name... chances are your a little brat on christmass break wishing he could play footaball. chances are you think your going to UM, but your probably too stupid. and him im wrong than your just freakin immature.

FIWho?, you're a moron. Accusing her of things that aren't true (unless you know her personally) is ridiculous. I'm with you kjharris, now let's not give this moron any more attention which is clearly what he's seeking.

O'darris D'haiti #20; thanks for your kind words! I appreciate it! GO Panthers!!!

O'darris D'haiti #20 (2009) did you graduate from FIU?

He a guy that switch from TE to DE just to help the team get better. He's a fighter cause he could easily have gone to one of these no name schools can start. He a friend cause he help make players around him better even if it means he make the player in front of him better.

Oh it gets better...
To Mrs. Harris you should be proud, played with your son and he is a great young man that deserves this.

Unreal...FIU grad..wow

fiwho? sounds just like the UMROCKS troll on the past article. way to hide under screen names. Boy two similar I dont speak spanish comments on the same fiu blog. Someone has nothing better to do than be posting nonsense on the miami herald website under different screen names. Get a life.

Mrs. Harris,

What day are you planning on getting to Detroit? My wife and I are taking off from Miami late on the 25th? If we have the same schedule maybe we can split a cab or a rent-a-car.. I have never driven in snow, but how much different can it be from driving through a Cat 1 Hurricane!! LOL.

We are PUMPED up and can't wait to get there. Did anyone buy the "Tailgating ticket"?

Go FIU!

Gooch, it's like driving in mud, drive slow...veeery slow and be careful too, don't drive aggressively (aka miami style)

I will not propagate your vile and insensitive nature. I have nothing to prove to you or anyone that chooses to question my academic achievements or athletic achievements for that matter. This is the last I will revisit this topic.

Your very welcome kjharris02, your son is a good man and I am proud to have played with him. Will not be at the game as it will have me away from my responsibilities. I will be watching the team on television, guessing you are going to be there in person. Enjoy the holidays and the game!

gooch 7 if u get this anytime soon, we are now outside of Nashville, and driving to i think Ohio tomorrow and staying over there thurs night and getting into Detroit probably around 3pm on Fri. We are staying till Tues. We did drive up but don't know if we are going to be driving in Detroit. Might just take a cab to and from the game or they might be providing transportation to and from the stadium. When we check into the Shelby hotel we will ask them! Are u guys staying there too??

OD, you are a class act.
