Soccer ties UCF 0-0, Colimon commits for football, Forde gets injured

FIU's men's soccer team's zeroed out their two Top 25 opponents this season after a 0-0 tie with No. 6 Central Florida Tuesday.

Lightning suspended the game with 4:49 left and the rain rendered the field unplayable. Officials called the game.

UCF brought in the nation's leading scorer, McKauley Tulloch, but FIU threw senior defender Jahbari Willis at him. Tulloch mustered only two shots at goal, none on goal. Freshman Rodney Greiling, who blanked No. 21 Kentucky, stopped all six UCF shots.

FOOTBALL

Been watching for when Riviera Suncoast safety Davison Colimon would make his decision on where to go. He'd said it was down to FIU and SMU before the season. He attended the FIU-Central Florida game with Suncoast teammate and close pal cornerback Abiade Granger (rivals.com says Granger has an FIU scholarship offer. Sources based around Camp Mitch say FIU has not offered Granger).

Monday, Colimon verbally committed to FIU. Colimon's a state high hurdles champion and could be moved down to linebacker in the Jimmy Johnson way adopted by FIU.

 

 

VOLLEYBALL

Jovana Bjelica was named Top Performer of the Week by The Collegiate Volleyball Update after her 20 kills and eight digs as FIU swept Flroida Atlantic 3-0 (25-22, 25-23, 25-17). Bjelica's 4.28 kills per set rans 23rd in the nation.

On the downside, setter Renele Forde suffered a thigh strain in practice Monday and coach Danijela Tomic said Forde was questionable for this weekend's matches. I'd go for less than questionable after seeing Forde hobble through the Graham Center this afternoon on crutches with left thigh wrapped. 

Senior Andrea Lakovic said wanting to get work with a new setter is one of the was one of the reasons Tuesday's practice, run by the players after Tomic felt Monday's practice was flat, ran long.

You'll never catch QUIJOTE on any of the UM boards. Why? Because they don't matter.

Haters gonna hate.
