Bruno stops carousel at FIU

Flanagan High cornerback Mark Bruno verbally committed to FIU Tuesday. He's 5-10, 165. Not rated by Scout.com or Rivals.com, rated at two stars by 247sports.com.


Another precinct heard...

Finally grabbed Phil Steele's 2013 College Football Preview. Steele and his staff do the most exhaustive statistical analysis -- some might say overanalysis -- of college football.

They've got FIU at No. 118 overall. By Steele's Stock Market Indicator, which takes into account close losses after a pattern of winning seasons, he gives the Panthers approximately an 88 percent chance of improving their 3-9 record. But, their lack of experience plus what he sees as an overall step up in competition going to Conference USA mitigates the SMI measurement and he expects FIU to have a hard time winning three games.

Only defensive lineman Greg Hickman (second team) makes Steele's preseason all-conference team.
