Sometime later today, FIU should be announcing that their football radio broadcasts for this season won't be traditional over-the-air, but via internet, allowing folks to get the broadcast on mobile devices. Jerry Del Castillo on the play-by-play.
And in the Possible Irony department: while FIU's got a happy feeling generally about its health, Duke's been giving the med school graduates work. Since June, they've lost five starters, according to Raleigh News & Observer Duke beat writer Laura Keeley. The latest -- and the reason for the irony -- was safety Jordan Byas who went down with a torn meniscus, Keeley reports. And, she notes, Byas' backup, Plantation High graduate Jeremy Cash, had his transfer waiver denied by the NCAA last week. Taylor Sowell, who would've backed up Byas, suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon.
Two listed starting safeties, redshirt junior August Campbell and junior Walt Canty, are returning starters. The third, junior Brandon Braxton, just converted from wide receiver during the offseason.
