FIU going to Detroit...

….to play Toledo

Apparently New Orleans Bowl folks were at the MTSU/FIU game yesterday and were not impressed. They took MSTU instead with Troy gong to Mobile.

The Panther fans are outraged they have to go to Detroit.

Both of their fans can't believe they are being disrespected when FIU is the center of the universe for college football.  ;)

Oh, and BTW, they out recruit us in basketball when they lose to someone named Jackson State this week, and we beat Miss State and USF.

But it does suck, what happened to being the conference champions, they have no say???

And guys, let's not forget the one team left out. of the 71 teams that qaulified for bowl eligibility (72 if you vcount bowl banned USC), the 8-4 Temple Owls got the biggest shaft of all!

How many 6-6 teams get to play in a bowl when an 8-4 team THAT BEAT UConn (BigEast Champs playing ina BCS mega millions jackpot bowl) sits home!

Happens every year. Northern Illinois went 10-2 one year with wins over Alabama, Iowa State, and Maryland and didn't get a bowl invite.

You have to feel for Temple though after the way they have improved as a program.

GO OWLS!!!!

You can run kitties, but you can't hide!!!
