This week, Day 2; Pat Bradley, Day 2 going into Day 3

As FIU limits defensive tackle Isame Faciane's snaps over the final four games, those snaps will be taken up by redshirt freshman Cody Horstman, freshman Fadol Brown and freshman Darrian Dyson. Others who should see increased playing time are freshman Davison Colimon at linebacker; freshman fullback Lemarq Caldwell; and redshirt freshman Lars Koht. Freshmen De'Andre Jasper and Nick England already have been in light rotation at wide receiver. 

Add offensive linemen Trenton Saunders and Edens Sineace, a couple of Palm Beach County young men, to the redshirt list.

"They're pretty good players, but offensive linemen, you'd like to get them in the 400-pound bench, 550-pound squat range," FIU coach Mario Cristobal said.

I'd put this in the comments, but, for some reason, my attempts to sign into the comments section now fail miserably. So, guess I have to put it here: chiapanther, that's the obvious question to ask of Orlando. And it'll be first out of the box.


Going into today's final round of FIU's 35th Annual Pat Bradley Invitational at Lakewood Rance Golf & Country Club, Daytona State's Mary Dawson leads after shooting a tournament record 67 in Monday's second round. Dawson's at an even 144, one ahead of FIU's Sophie Godley. Tania Tare and Meghan MacLaren are tied for fifth with Boston College's Katia Joo at 3-over 147. Jasmine Wade's in a five-way cluster at 10th, 7-over 151.

FIU leads the team standings by 14 shots over Boston College and 15 shots over Cincinnati. 


Coley preseason Sun Belt Player of the Year; FIU picked 2nd in East

Junior guard Jerica Coley, predictably, got the Sun Belt's Preseason Player of the Year honor in a conference coaches poll. Coley was an Honorable Mention All-America selection last year.

FIU was picked second behind Middle Tennessee State, which had three preseason First Team selections, in the East Division and got the one first place vote Middle didn't get.

Forward Finda Mansare was named a Second Team All-Sun Belt selection.
