So, at Labor Day, nobody's happy with the economy or the U.S. President, the volleyball team is 2-4, the women's soccer team is .500, the football team has zero wins and the only undefeated team at Camp Mitch is men's soccer (3-0).
What is this, 1992? Feel like I should touch up my flattop, set the VCR to record Married...With Children and ask friends if they have power back after Andrew.
(Yes, I know the football team didn't exist. That's why it had zero wins)
Anyway, Sunday's 1-0 win at Jacksonville pushes men's soccer to 3-0 with two shutouts in the first three games under Kenny Arena. Freshman Patrick Ramdial got the goal off a setup from Daniel Gonzalez and freshman Robin Spiegel picked up his second shutout. While the football team tries to regain its grounding at home against Akron, their soccer brothers will be between games at Wisconsin, ranked No. 4 in the Great Lakes Region, and Illinois-Chicago.
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater completed 19 of 21 passes for 232 yards Saturday against Kentucky -- and sat out the fourth quarter. The first three touchdown drives Bridgewater led were 95, 85 and 93 yards.
FIU will see Bridgewater in three weeks when the Miami Northwestern graduate leads the Cardinals into town. If they don't buck up the pass defense by then, Bridgewater's homecoming could make FIU look like Louisville's homecoming opponent.
