Men's soccer 5-0 for 2nd time in Division I; women win 6-0; what about Kedrick Rhodes

Sophomore forward Colby Burdette scored in the second half and in overtime to lift FIU to a 2-1 overtime win against Illinois-Chicago. After their 2-0 road trip, the FIU men sit at 5-0.

None of the previous players were born the last time FIU won its first quintet of games. Most of the buildings on the Mitch Maidique Campus weren't built. The brand new building on campus was Sunblazer Arena. 

The year: 1987, FIU's first season in Division I.

And this was the most talked about movie scene of the year...




The women bombed Idaho Sunday evening 6-0, pushing them to 3-2-1. No, they didn't get two field goals after intercepting tipped Ryan Tannehill passes.

Junior Chelsea Leiva pumped in her first career hat trick and threw in an assist on Johanna Volz's goal. Sophomores Volz, Scarlett Montoya and Nikki Rios scored while freshman Madlen Weinhardt picked up three assists.

Goalkeeper Kaitlyn Savage made six saves for her third shutout of the season.  


Camp Mitch sources say senior linebacker Alex Robinson, a big part of FIU's special teams, could be out for next week's game at Central Florida, but running back Kedrick Rhodes should be OK to run against UCF.

great news on Rhodes. He had 96 yards rushing in last years upset over UCF.

We need him back.

Perhaps you can do some public record search on the Texas A&M contract. Is it officially broken and if so what was the buy out? You know how tight the security is at Camp Mitch, no one is talking!
If true that would mean we have two empty slots to fill, I hope for the grace of GOD that we learned from FAU's debacle with Wagner not to schedule an FCS school unless its Appalachian State.

Keep up the great stuff.
