Half the starting lineup from last yearâ€™s Sun Belt Conference champions is gone, so the Sun Belt coaches poll picking FIU women's soccer as the preseason favorite gives props to the talent in the 2010 and 2011 recruiting classes.
On the 24-woman roster, there are 15 juniors and sophomores, eight freshmen and [...]

Those three teams started practice last week and I'll be blogging on them soon. Men's soccer has a preseason game at Barry Thursday. The women's soccer team [...]
Usually, as readers of this blog know from last year, postgame blog analysis is done after the game and posted sometime in the wee am hours (exceptions for excessive sleepiness preceding multi-hour morning drives). Last night, I planned to do the same. I didn't plan to get home late, sleepy [...]

The title refers to the blog post, made after lunch The Saturday morning practice definitely was early. Like if this were the old Saturday morning cartoon days, FIU would've been on the field before the first In The News.

Saturday's scrimmage will be 120 plays, divided evenly among 1s vs. 1s, 2s vs. 2s, 3s vs. 3s. They'll roll out most of the offense.
Safety Jordan Davis, a freshman out of Tampa Alonso, will have knee surgery in the next few days to determine the extent of his ligament damage.
