A few things from Saturday afternoon's scrimmage. I'll expand on this post or have an entirely new in-depth post later after writing my news story on the scrimmage.
There was one touchdown, Jake Medlock zipping a line drive to Willis Wright on a post for 29 yards; one interception, redshirt junior Sam Gervais picking off a Medlock pass that sophomore linebacker Michael Wakefield tipped; and one fumble, running back Lemarq Caldwell on the second play.
That fumble was recovered by the star of the scrimmage, sophomore defensive tackle Fadol Brown. Brown also had four sacks, innumerable tackles and just took advantage of FIU's immature offensive line.
FIU coach Ron Turner said running back Kedrick Rhodes has had one of the best springs of any individual player, but didn't play Saturday because he was "banged up." He said had Saturday been a real game, Rhodes could've played. (Heck, anybody who follows FIU knows that. Whenever Rhodes played last year after the third game, he did so on two imperfect ankles).
Kicker Serge Sroka made five of six field goals with a long of 47 yards. Medlock punted almost as well as Chris Ayers.
