Found September 17, 2012 on The Cardinal Connect:
–Strong says the team will now face one of the tougher parts of the schedule with three straight road games. –The team must stay mentally focused and play with confidence throughout the next few weeks, Strong says. –Charles Gaines, John Miller and Adrian Bushell have all practiced since Saturday and are expected to play this weekend. John Miller’s injury was more of a cramp than a knee injury. –Dominique Brown will continue to be evaluated throughout the week. Strong says with the first two running backs playing so well, a redshirt for Brown is an option. –Strong spoke very highly of FIU, mentioning their playmakers on offense and their ten returning starters on defense. –“This team came in here and beat us last year, so we’re going to respect this football team,” Strong says. –Despite a lot of players on the team being from Miami and being able to visit with family, Strong says this game will be looked at as a “business trip.” –18 players from the Miami area will be in attendance
