FIU Sports' Chromosome Weekend

The teams with a Y chromosome are asking "Why?"

As in, "why did the football team suddenly show up with a laissez-faire Sun Belt defense and look stunned that Blaine Gauthier, the Sun Belt Offensive Player of the Week, can pass something other than gas?" Or, for men's soccer, which lost in double overtime Friday, "why can't we even finish our Sunday game?" Up 2-1 at home on Howard on goals by Quentin Albrecht and Lucas Di Croce, FIU saw hard rain and lightning bring a halt to the game.

Meanwhile, the teams with two X chromosomes, the volleyball and women's soccer teams, each went 2-0 on the weekend as they opened conference play. The volleyball team dumped North Texas Friday and Denver Sunday. Jovana Bjelica had a team-high 19 kills Sunday. Renele Forde piled up 53 assists. The women's soccer team went to Arkansas-Litle Rock and Arkansas State and, on Pork Out Sunday at the Neal household, finished a weekend sweep with a 2-1 overtime win. Senior April Perry scored in overtime off a feed from Ashleigh Shim. Nicole Di Perna opened the scoring.

Although at the end of the day, the women's soccer team might've been asking "Why?" -- they didn't make their connection in Atlanta and spent Sunday night there.

What's the status on WC? Will Jake be getting all the snaps this week?

Am I the only one who has asked what has happened to our only 4 star recruit , Lavarez Mars? Is he a bust, but disguised as injured? I have seen him on the sidelines, where it appears he has shrunk to about 5'10" and maybe190 lbs. Is he considering cornerback? Or retirement?
