Why was the grim reaper at Florida Atlantic's practice on Thursday?

The Plains Hotel, located in historic downtown Cheyenne, Wyo., is haunted. According to the website, legend has it one person was murdered at the hotel by being pushed out a fourth floor window. On another occasion, a newlywed bride found her husband in bed with someone other than her, and disposed of all three of them. All four sprits supposedly now haunt the 103-year old structure.

According to those who are inclined to believe such things, the bride can be seen wandering the second floor in a blue gown. The other woman supposedly haunts brides. The murder victim casts feelings of dread on some guests. Reports of screaming can be heard from a certain room. You know, wholesome kind of stuff.

What does in the world does this have to do with football?

Florida Atlantic is staying in the Plains Hotel this weekend for its road trip to Wyoming.

Head coach Charlie Partridge decided to spook his team by having the grim reaper show up at practice on Thursday morning.
