HoopTV, Y-Chromosome Version; Losses for FIU You Don't See

The group of Sinclair stations known loosely as the American Sports Network will broadcast seven FIU games:

Nov. 25 -- vs. LIU, 7 p.m.

Nov. 30 -- at Stetson, 7 p.m.

Dec. 6 -- vs. Florida Gulf Coast, 3:30

Jan. 28 -- vs. Charlotte, 7 p.m.

Feb. 4 -- at Alabama-Birmingham, 8 p.m.

Feb. 20 -- at Rice, 2 p.m.

Feb. 27 -- at FAU, 2 p.m.

Some of you who follow FIU sports other than football have noticed the in-game Twitter updates that kept us apprised of the action now trickle like California's water supply when they come at all. That's because the folks who let us know what was going on -- while dealing with 17 other things -- left FIU.

FIU Athletics media relations department needs replenishment in quantity and quality. In a short span, the office lost three staffers of uncompromising integrity, high work ethic and tremendous patience with the sometimes harassing conditions (faulty equipment, many people looking over their shoulders, etc.) of their jobs. Each was in charge of certain sports and were part of the mini-army for sports that needed multiple staffers at home games, i.e. football, baseball, the basketballs.

They write the stories for the FIUsports.com website, handle interview requests, do pregame and postgame notes for distribution to the media and a pile of other stuff not appreciated by many outside the media industry.

Kristina Taylor, the assistant sports information director in charge of volleyball, women's basketball and sand volleyball, left before the school year to be Membership and Operations Coordinator with the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association in New Orleans.

Greg Kincaid, who handled men's basketball, baseball, swimming & diving, left last week for a similar position at Indiana University.

Jill Boucher (women's soccer, softball) would like to get a Masters in nutrition. She's pondering her options.

Good luck to all.
