A couple of football notes:
ESPN3, ESPN's online streaming tentacle, has picked up the Sept. 24 Louisiana-Lafayette visit to FIU, which means a) one more night game, 6 p.m. and b) get your computer cleaned and beef up your connection speeds because The Hat Trick loves FIU. Or, rather, the Bristol Boys love to put FIU on The Hat Trick.
ESPN3 did the 2011 baseball season opener that saw the end of Garret Wittels hit streak. Now, it'll have four of the first four FIU games: Sept. 1 season opener against North Texas, Sept. 17 against Central Florida, Sept. 24, and Oct. 1 agianst Duke. There's still the possibility of any of the last three games -- Nov. 12 against FAU, Nov. 19 at Louisiana-Monroe and Nov. 26 at Middle Tennessee State -- could wind up on some form of broadcast.
Thursday night, Davison Colimon, a defensive back and ace hurdler in the 110 highs at Riviera Beach Suncoast being chased by several schools, Tweeted "FSU need to tightin (sic) up and offer." A follower asked, "If you had to choose one of your offers right now, where would you go?" Colimon answered, "Tie between SMU and FIU."
