Tuesday

Injury update: Senior wide receiver Jacob Younger, who suffered a deep bruise to his lower back, didn't practice Tuesday and will see a doctor. Running back Kedrick Rhodes is day-to-day while Jeremiah Harden's still dealing with ankle and knee injuries.

The Sports Exchange's Paul Borden pointed out the irony that FIU's injury troubles have been on offense, but it's the defense that's been the biggest failure. Linebacker Winston Fraser admitted the defense's collapse has confounded him just as it has anyone who follows FIU.

In answer to what happened to freshman linebackers Leroy Owens and Jamie Willis, who were running with the second team quite early in training camp: Owens will be redshirted. Willis, who had shoulder surgery, will be "serving a year of residency" before probably rejoining the team next season.

Troy opened a 4.5-point favorite and has shot up to a 6.5 to 7-point favorite across the board despite quarterback Corey Robinson being questionable or doubtful for this week's game. FIU's 3-4 against the spread this season.

The defense is bad but the special teams are pretty bad too.
The offense is very predictable, it looks decent only because Medlock is a stud.

Accusing the defense as being the only responsable party for the terrible season we are having, is not only an injustice but it's untrue. IMHO.

Yes, Fiwho is having a "terrible season", but hey, that's just Fiwho football!
Fiwho has built a legacy of "terrible season's", so what's new? smh

Oh what a "rise"??? (snicker) : )
