Ball (Foot & Volley) Rankings

UPCOMING HOME GAMES/MATCHES

What happens when you put away your bombs just because the defense says it won't let you drop them?

Sophomore quarterback Alex McGough completes 24.4 passes per game, 13th nationally. His completion percentage, 64.6, is 36th. FIU's team yards per completion? A mere 9.3, 127th out of 127. Scoring offense, 21.4 (113th) and total offense, 356.6 yards per game (99th).

Not getting it done.

La Tech's Skip Holtz, like his old man and most other college coaches since Bear Bryant, knows how to either poormouth his own team or make the next opponent sound like 2004 Southern Cal. But in possibly buttering up Texas-San Antonio, he threw some kind words toward FIU's Michael Wakefield and Denzell Perine:

"I think they (UTSA) are the best defensive football team we've played to this point. They definitely have the best front four. I thought Kansas State had the best interior players. I thought FIU had the best defensive ends."

VOLLEYBALL

After a weekend sweep of Marshall and UTEP, 10-6 FIU sits at 4-2 in conference play, sixth in the standings. You say "big deal" but after missing the CUSA tournament last year, yeah, it's kind of a big thumbs up so far.

For what it's worth, FIU's RPI ranks 168th in the nation.
