« Marshalling To The NFL; JDC Is FIU | Main | Nation's Leading JUCO Scorer Signs With FIU....1 of 4 New FIU Hoopsters »

Marshall The Buccaneer

Bucs Mmcduffie FIU safety Marshall McDuffie signed a free agent deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the NFL Draft concluded on Sunday.

The 6-2, 212-pound McDuffie had 26 tackles and three interceptions last season. MM worked out for the Bucs and Dolphins last week before the draft.

MM might get a chance to go against former FIU and current Falcons receiver Chandler Williams twice should both players make their teams out of training camp. The Bucs and Falcons are in the same NFC South division and play twice each season.

MM & CW along with El Monstruo are the 3 FIU players currently in the NFL.

Another series win for the FIU baseball team. The Panthers defeated ULM on Sunday to take 2 out of 3 and are just 4 games from first place Western Kentucky. The last 3 home games of the season for FIU are this coming weekend with a 3-game set against Arkansas State at University Park Stadium. FIU has only lost 2 series (Middle Tennessee and New Orleans) this season.

Your Q&A

FIUAL: Hey Pete hows the construction of the field house going?

PP: Going just fine and on target to open June 30. Will have a tour of the fieldhouse on the GPP soon.

Ab alt7787: He came up with EL Monstrou didnt he?

PP: Yes, JDC came up with the nickname for Antwan Barnes (left).

FIURage: Does anyone know if Rosenberg is a sports guy or not. I would hope that the next president keeps the sports ball rolling at FIU.

PP: Like cabin001 posted: Rosenberg beat and dunked on Isiah in a pick-up game. Rosenberg ran past MC along the offensive line and sacked the quarterback and Rosenberg struck out TT on 3 pitches looking. Yeah, he's a sports guy.

Apaw For our poll question on this post, we are only going to go with seniors. Yes, FIU will eventually have some juniors ready for the NFL, but for now let's stick to this year's seniors:
