I know OD posted this info in the comments section of the previous post, but just in case you missed it here it is.


The FIU ladies received more recognition for their best season (32-4, round of 32 in the NCAA Tournament) in the program's 23-year history.

Fiuvolley Yarimar Rosa (no surprise there), Natalia Valentin and Jovana Bjelica (left to right in the photo) all were named to the Division I All-South Region team.

We should know within the next couple of weeks if YR receives her 4th All-American nod.


Yes, last week was the final football game for 19 FIU seniors. This senior class endured some tough seasons as the program won 9 games in their four years.

Bryant Would like to take this time to acknowledge a couple of seniors -- who were called on to speak after every game and at just about every practice -- for their cooperation the past 4 seasons. As the face of the defense for 3 of his 4 seasons, El Oso Scott Bryant (left, thanks Alex J. Hernandez photo) never turned down an interview and always spoke even when a lot of times thingsPmc were not going well with the program. Same goes with Paul McCall, (right, thanks AJH photo) who as the offensive leader the last 2 seasons, plus 1 game, always talked after a game regardless of how tough the game was and as you saw this season PMC took a beating.

Having the privilege to work in this field, covering and writing about professional/college teams and athletes, I can tell you it is not the norm for athletes (more so pro athletes) to face the music when times are tough or when there is a lot of losing. However, SB and PMC were always stand-up guys and always spoke whether it was a win or loss.
