FIU Football’s Historic Win: How Does the Program & Fan Base Respond

A trait that separates great teams and athletes from being average is the ability to not dwell on past failures.

FIU limped into Saturday’s contest against Miami (Fla.) (figuratively and literally) as 20-point underdogs, with a massively disappointing 5-5 record, having been outscored in those losses by a margin of 83-192.

Not to mention the wins came against teams with a combined record of 13-38. The above makes their 30-24 triumph over the Hurricanes even more noteworthy.

“In our leadership meeting, we talk about when you don’t achieve the goals that you set out to, what you do from there says a lot about your character and I think this win says a lot about us,” said quarterback James Morgan after the game.
