FIU's first Conference USA Player of the Week of the year is a Golfer of the Week, sophomore Meghan MacLaren.
MacLaren's 6-over 222 put her fifth in last week's Golfweek Conference Challenge. This week, freshman Coralia Arias led FIU to a fourth place (out of 11) at the Old Waverly Invitational. Her 2-under 214 landed Arias sixth individually.
Without hearing more than I already have, I won't speculate about the cause of the suspensions of cornerback cousins Richard Leonard and Jeremiah McKinnon. The "texting former coaches" cause put forth in the comments section of this blog doesn't jibe with either logic -- players text and gripe about coaches to former teammates and coaches all over the nation -- or with what I heard happened involving Leonard or McKinnon two weeks ago.
