Is it the return of the beach court? Got an Isaac Hayes complex, something against black coaches with shaved heads? Because Conference USA's announcements of the first televised games feature only one game each for FIU men's and women's basketball.
More TV time will be coming for the Panthers in the 60 (at least) additional games to be shown by the American Sports Network, which means there's a chance they might be shown in Miami as well as Massachusetts.
The Sunday, Jan. 3 still-recovering-from-New-Year's-Eve game between FAU and FIU will be on Fox Sports Neworks at 3 p.m. FSN also gets Rice at FIU on Feb. 25.
Players you won't see this week: wide receivers Shawn Abrams and Juwan Caesar, both of whom were in the Home Depot orange jerseys. And I've been remiss in not reporting sophomore safety Shemarke Spence's broken arm.
