FIU Football cannot get here soon enough. We just renewed our season tickets (new section due to price increase, though). Head Coach Mario Cristobal just signed an extension through 2017.
How does the team keep motivated for another successful (but better) season this year? They hang up pictures on the gym door, of course.
The pictures highlight some of the tough losses they want to revenge for. It also features motivation to beat up on UCF again. (UCF has been talking a lot of trash and are on the lookout for revenge.)
“jhonnyboy” on FIUGoldenPanthers.com took this picture of the door.
Who’s to say that FAU is not our rival? The team surely seems to believe so. I know I, as well as other diehard fans, agree with them. There is lots of animosity between the two schools whether you like it or not. We loved beating them last season. I want to continue beating them before we leave to Conference USA.
I also see UCF as potential for a new rival and I don’t mind. Rivalries are fun. The more the merrier, as it keeps our players challenged and hungry for success.
