In South Florida, football has always been and will continue to be "king." Due to last off-season's acquisitions of the "Three Kings," many argue that basketball may overtake football, not so. Although, "The 3 Kings" will help Dolphin fans get through the off-season by providing them with a distraction until the season comes back around - whenever that is - at this rate who knows when the season will start. Anyway, this past college football season has been a great one for FIU fans, alumni, and the nearby community that supports the team.
In barely 10 years of existence, the FIU Football program are conference champions (co-champions, but whatever. .) and Little Ceasers Bowl Champs. It was exciting to be there to witness history in the making for such a young hard working coaching staff and players alike. Hopefully next season we can look forward to playing a bowl game in a much warmer climate. Detroit was too cold!
As the program continues to grow, I will continue to do my best to inform and educate the "Panther Nation." Hopefully we can find a way to encourage and get more individuals to support the basketball program and the other inter-collegiate sports on campus.
Be on the look out for several interviews with several of your former Golden Panther athletes, Julius Eppinger, Paul McCall, Anthony Gaitor, Scott Bryant and others.
