A new Sheriff on campus?

Hialeah defensive end Jermaine Sheriff has given his verbal vow to FIU as part of the Class of 2014.

He's unrated by ESPN, Scout.com and 247sports.com. Rivals.com has him at two stars.

Health and Hilliard

Senior cornerback Sam Miller's the only health question going into Saturday's game at Middle Tennessee State and he's questionable. Middle opened a 17-point favorite, now up to 18 with an over/under of 48 1/2.

I asked Turner what he thought of sophomore quarterback E.J. Hilliard's performance last week against East Carolina after a thorough game video review.

"He did a lot of good things but he did a lot of things that looked like a guy who hadn't played very much. He's got to throw the ball. The ball's got to come out of his hand. I told him, "You've got to throw the ball if you're going to play. I don't care if it's incomplete. But you've got to throw the football." He's holding onto the ball way too long.

"Early in the game, he was pretty good at it. As the game went on, he got worse and worse. He's holding it, then he's running backwards. I said, "You're not going to play if you're doing that." Throw the ball, No. 1, if you can't throw it, go forward. We can't take a three-step drop and have a 10-yard loss on a sack. We can't take a five-step drop and have a 15-yard loss on a sack. We get sacked, we get sacked. It's got to be a 4-yard loss. Or find a lane and run. He had a lot of opportunities to pull the trigger and didn't. That's pretty typical of a young guy."

Women's soccer loses in Conference USA tournament

Only junior Johanna Volz could find the back of the net as North Texas gave FIU the what for, 4-1, in Wednesday's Conferece USA tournament game.

North Texas dominated the first half, taking a 2-0 lead and outshooting FIU 13-2 and getting four corner kicks to FIU's one. Volz's goal in the 58th minute got FIU back into the game as play started to even out. But goals in the 72nd and 82nd minute allowed the Mean Green to pull away.  

FOOTBALL

One note on attendance: official attendance, which is what's on the official statistics book, and what gets reported to the NCAA as attendance often differ.
