Big win, now let's win the rubber match and take the series.

Nice work Justin! Good update.

Nice win against #14 Texas A&M in extra innings (btw, it was in 10 innings, not 11 innings). Two very competitive games going to 10 innings to decide the winner so far in this series.

Fondon put up his best performance of the year so far this season. Congrats to RJ and to FIU!

Thanks fro the update Justin. Big Win for FIU after they barely beat us in football and knocked us out of the baseball NCAA tournament last year.

Big Win for FIU!!
Fondon was in command and showed great mound presence.


Nice win, congrats to the team lets get the series tomorrow!

That 7-8 team beats a cr@ppy V.Tech team, that isnt even expected to make a regional this year, while FIU beats #14 team in nation and goes toe-to-toe with 2 of the top starters in the nation and all we get is an update from justin on the blog?!?!?!..........HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! what a joke

Why even bring it up? We had a great win, we went 1-2 against the 14th ranked team in the country in three ultra-competitive games. Why even bring up UM? Jesus man, that's a major inferiority complex.

Furthermore, if I am more interested in another school it would be FAU, who we play six-times this year. Their 1-2 performance versus Seton Hall means much more to me since we sweeped the same team.

I wonder if there will ever be something about our last game written on this blog lol.
