Medlock hurt on 2nd play of the game; and other sports stuff.

FIU redshirt freshman quarterback Jake Medlock hurt his right shoulder when tackled on the second play of the game Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe and left the game.

Medlock, making his second consecutive start, kept on an option run around left side, put his shoulder down to crash through several defenders. This time, it was Medlock who remained down. He went to the locker room and returned by first quarter's end -- out of uniform.

Fifth-year senior Wesley Carroll came into the game and guided FIU to a 7-0 lead after the first quarter, 28-10 at halftime. Carroll threw for 196 yards and 3 touchdowns in the first half helped by two spectacular catch-and-runs by Glenn Coleman and T.Y. Hilton.

After Western Kentucky pulled another natural hat trick (3-0) on FIU to end the Panthers season Friday night in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament, senior hitter Andrea Lakovic was named to the All-Tournament team. In FIU's two tournament matches, Lakovic pounded 24 kills, six blocks and two service aces. Lakovic ends her career as the rally-scoring era leader in hitting percentage (.302), block assists (351) and total blocks (388) and second in solo blocks (37). Her 1,005 kills rank fifth in the rally-scoring era.

"and sophomore Kolton Browning’s not the kind of running quarterback that FIU’s had problems containing."

The U baby! Bowl eligible~~!!! FIU no bowl 4 u!!! Sucks to be u!

So wish UM could play FIU in a bowl. There is non doubt in my mind that FIU would win! TY is that good.

Jake Medlock better learn how to slide or he's not going to last long as a quarterback at this level. That Tim Tebow impersonation has to go.

No one believes you're a real person "Canes Legazy".

What kind of loser pretends to be an unintelligent member of another team's fanbase just to get people to talk to him on the internet.

Can you give a realistic scenario of what FIU has to look forward to IF they beat Middle next week? Will there be a Bowl game for the #4 team in the Sunbelt? If there is then what Bowl game are we looking at? Thanks!

The game against Middle will be very hard to win in my opinion. Between the home field advantage and the COLD and us NEVER playing good against Middle I don't see us winning but I sure hope the boys pull through..

Go FIU!

The Belt is really gotten tough. There are 4 teams bowl eligible with another week left. Canes Legazy, good news UM dropped out of the bowl race.

9-23 out of conference.

NYCFIUFAN, nice try but we are bowl eligible now and the powers that be, wants to see us play. Too bad for fiu nobody cares if they are eligible. Ha but the U is a legacy everyone wants to see!!
