FIU

Post by rayers » Sat Nov 18, 2017 10:39 pm

One more game this year. Two weeks to prep. Let’s hope the admin and coaches treat this as a special opportunity, our “bowl type game.” Nice southern FL weather. GoUMass!

For UMass I definitely think this is a bowl game and for FIU it's a consolation game after not making it to the C-USA championship game. Hope our guys are pumped up for this one and for the opportunity to end the season on a high note.

Based on the mindsets of the two squads coming into this game, the Minutemen have an excellent chance of winning and ending the second half 5-1. :shock: :shock: :shock:

Anyone think this game allows Ford to get to the 3K milestone or Marquise to get tot 1k? Both need great games to get there, but neither is out of the realm of possibility.

Marquis has a better shot at 1,000 seeing as he will need just under 150 yards. Ford will need to throw from more than 400 yards, something he hasn't done all year.

Idk about the info yet, but if it's been like any of the C-USA teams Army has played at it will be broadcast on beIN Sports. No TV channel to my knowledge and good luck with streaming. Only major providers they support: Verizon, Dish, DirecTV, and Cox to my knowledge. This Comcast customer was NOT happy. :evil:

I am a Comcast subscriber and I get beIN sports, although it probably is in a sports package that I buy. It's channel 192.

Oh, I know. The best bet is Isabella getting over a grand in receiving, but it would be awesome for either Young or Ford to hit those milestones. My hope is Ford chucks it all over the place in the first half and we are up in the area of 28-7 or 0, or so, and then Young gets the rock in the second half.

The game will be played at The Cage. It's true.

This game is going head to head with the CUSA title game, so no help from conference affiliated telecast for FIU. ESPN 2 is broadcasting the CUSA title game. I don't know if that would impact ESPN from picking our game up for a web stream.

And the game overlaps with our 2 PM hoops at South Carolina, which is on the SEC network.
