Panther Student Section last night at FIU vs WKU

I had heard rumblings about this and decided to check into it:


Picture via Twitter.


Remember: they have 47,966 students (as of 2011; they could have much more in 2012).

Now, we know South Florida is a fickle sports climate and FIU is having an unexpectedly bad season. Even so, they've been competitive up until the fourth quarter in most games, so students should at least attend thinking they're due to win one of these games soon.

Point is: I wouldn't expect many FIU fans to make the 45+ minute drive to Boca if they can't even show up to see FIU take on a good football team on their own campus.

What a sight. Look, you are correct, but that's nothing new. They never show up when we've played them; not at Joe Robbie, not at Lockhart, not even the orange bowl. Heck, we always have had more FAU fans, even when they host. I've been to every Shula Bowl home and away…their turnout always sucks. The will not show up. Honestly, this is only one of the reasons I definitely will not miss them in our conference…good riddance!

How do you think C-USA feels about their decision to pick up FIU right now? Can't be good. I really think the SBC is going to be a stronger conference than C-USA next year and for a few years to come.

I think CUSA is fine with their selection of FIU.  They have never had good attendance so I don't think it comes as a surprise.  I agree we the SBC is on the rise.  But let's not kid ourselves…we would have probably accepted a bid to CUSA in a second, and we would all be bragging about it.

The end goal is neither of those conferences so it is impossible to know which is the best way to go right now.

How many people show when they get DRUBBED by Tulsa and who is gonna care at all about Tulane and Rice and UTEP? They barely outdrew us last year when they were pretty good and we were one of the worst in FBS football. And don't even mention basketball attendance! Nice job CUSA!

That picture is WAY beyond sad, can we have it framed! ;D

I just realized something too. It be high school playoff weekend too. So not many people would want to drive up from Miami for that.

What?? Not happening. Win or lose its not a 3 score difference for either team. We are improving every week, Wilbert is really looking like a senior QB and our offense just won us a game.

50% of their board is calling for Cristobal…he's a great recruiter but isn't showing coaching strength right now. And now Medlock is hurt again, the kitties might only win 1 this year.
