The holdup on the 2013 football schedule; free stuff at basketball games; Beaupre wins Sun Belt Diver of the Week (again)
FIU's non-conference schedule for 2013 long has been set -- open at Maryland Aug. 31; host UCF Sept. 7; host Bethune-Cookman Sept. 14; go to Louisville, Sept. 21.
But the Conference USA portion of the schedule couldn't be set until everybody knows who'll be in C-USA next year. And with it now looking as if FAU and Middle Tennessee State will join the league in 2013 instead of 2014, there's still not certainty of the JLA, er, C-USA Roll Call for next season.
The FAU-Middle situation should be settled at the next Conference USA meetings, which will be down here next week.
By the way, Sports Illustrated's Stewart Mandel gave FIU the what for in his Tuesday analysis of coaching changes...
The first 75 fans to the women's game and the men's game Thursday night against North Texas will receive a free t-shirt and free pizza and beverage on the plaza.
Wonder if that'll include the 10 NBA scouts in the house to watch North Texas' Tony Mitchell.
Junior diver Sabrina Beaupre swept both the 1-meter and 3-meter events at FIU Winter Invite and in the dual meet against Central Connecticut State. So, the Sun Belt awarded Beaupre her third Diver of the Week award this season and 13th of her career.
