That's awesome. Looks like a season long hard knock series.

I beleive FSU is doing the same this year. ND did it last year.

Not one to count my chickens before they hatch, but Charlotte's offensive line looks like a weakness for their team.

Granted it is Louisville, but we ought to be able to emulate pressure with some success.

Attendance looks pathetic for FIU at home against Indiana. If you can't get fans in the stadium for the first game of the year against a Big 10 team then you don't deserve a Football program.  

I would say the same if it was us.
