It's summer the sports scene is slow -- geez, I've been covering fencing and hockey the last 2 days -- so we're going to go back in time on the next blog to help one of our new readers understand how FIU could have won the Sun Belt last season in football and gone on to play in the New Orleans Bowl against Rice.
fiugrad78: I spoke with Turtle Thomas recently and he is out of town evaluating future FIU players. He's expected back in Miami in July after he moves all his stuff from Arizona back down here. He has not hired any coaches as of this post. He's down to 2 candidates at each of the 3 assistant coaching spots he's looking to fill. As for the 3 stooges you referred to, I would not go wagering anything that they will have a job with FIU next year. The former FIU baseball coaching staff needed a housecleaning and the broom and bleach were brought out. As for transfers, I'm sure we'll see some impact players on the FIU roster next baseball season.
FIUDad: I'm not sure if Keke Bouie is going to get another shot with an NFL team. NFL teams would be foolish not to give the 2-time Sun Belt Defensive Player of the Year a look. When I last spoke with Keke he said he was healthy and ready for a shot in the NFL.
FIUmom: Thanks for the kind motherly words.
Concerned Fan: There's no official word yet on who's still on the FIU baseball roster, but just like it happened when MC took over football, I'm sure there will be some players that no longer will be part of the baseball team. Not all of DP's players are considered TT's players. "Be prepared to work hard".
YouGotGold: Football players are studying the playbook and working out now. The freshmen should be here in July. Because of an NCAA rule, college football teams cannot begin practice until the second week of August. Teams only have a set amount of days they can practice. Don't worry the GPP will have continous reports out of Camp Cristobal when it begins.
Crazy Cane: Antwan Barnes's impact has been talked about by his coaches, teammates and the Baltimore media. Of course, he hasn't made any game impact yet, because the Ravens haven't played a down yet. And for the record: AB was drafted by the Ravens and NOT invited to camp.
