College football fans have sometimes joked about a mythical bowl game called the Toilet Bowl between the two worst teams in the country. This Saturday, two of the worst teams in the country will be on the same field and someone will walk away with its first victory of the year.
Florida International University’s football team is teetering on complete irrelevance as the worst team in college football and the men’s basketball team is ineligible for the NCAA tournament due to academics. But, according to FIU president Mark Rosenberg, the schools is not considering any change with regards to head football coach Ron Turner or athletic director Pete Garcia.
The Ron Turner-led Florida International University Panthers are looking for their first victory of the season, but won’t find it this weekend when they travel to Louisville to play the Cardinals.
A few years ago, Florida International University was the whipping boy of the Football Bowl Subdivision. They were scheduled for a guaranteed win. Head coach Mario Cristobal changed that, but after he was fired; FIU has once again sunk to the bottom of the FBS.
The wheels continue to fall off for the Florida International Panthers football team in 2013.
The Florida International Panthers could ill afford to lose any starter on a team that is expected to struggle this season. But after just one game, three starters and one backup are already out for the Panthers.
The 2013 season was going to be tough for Florida International, but things continue to go downhill as more star players have been lost.
Florida International University made the leap to Conference USA this year and will not only be the new team on the block, but the squad will also have a new offense and a new head coach.
First-year Florida International University head coach Ron Turner has to follow the program’s best coach who took the team to its only two bowl games before being fired after a down season last year and do it all while playing in a tougher conference.
Florida International’s rushing attack is going to look a lot different than last year’s version thanks to an incident over the past weekend.
