Re: Scores around the Belt

As usual, Larry Blakeney called off the dogs - this time early in the third quarter.

Troy probably could have scored 100 on them, but instead settled for a score (FIU scored against the subs of the subs with less than 30 seconds to play, and then got an onsides kick and almost caught another TD pass as time expired) that would lead some people to think it was a competitive game.

Attendance was 5k and that was very generous. I feel bad for the Golden Panthers.

Troy is now 3-0 in the Belt. They are the real deal. ASU losing helps us, though.

You shouldn't. They surely did not feel sorry for us a couple of years back. I will NEVER forget how they not only ran the score up on us, but how their mascot was coming onto our side of the field and gloating as well. I pray for their losing streak to continue for 10 more years…

Don't feel bad for us…We, FIU fans, do already.  We hope we will see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I still remember at Dolphins Stadium how the FAU cheerleaders and the mascot were mocking FIU fans at the 2004 Shula Bowl.  I think, it is part of this "rivalry" thing.  Still, I don't harbor that hatred for FAU and their fans, as I know most of them are civil and level headed people.  Actually, I hoped you beat USF.

As for the game itself, I found a positive, believe it or not.  We actually led Troy 7-3 after the 1st quarter, and were losing 20-10 at half thanks to a late second FG by Troy and a punt return for a TD with 3 minutes left and Troy only up 10-7. The game was actually pretty closely played for a half, in my opinion.  Then, Troy scored 2 TD's in the 3rd quarter to put the game away.  However, the dogs were still there for the entire 3rd quarter as they scored their last TD on an 88 yard run by their starting RB Cattouse with 3 minutes remaining in the quarter.
