FIU wins 2-1 over USF!

There's only 3 regular season games left this season, 2 of which are at home. We still might make up the 2 postponed games vs ODU and UCF.

We have a chance to finish the season undefeated. I'm heading out to the next two home games! Let's support the best team FIU has right now!


That program deserves way more support than it gets. Always has.

Even the school doesn't support it the way it should. That miserable excuse for a stadium is proof. How that is allowed to continue is beyond me.

The reward for being one of the top program in the nation is to be hosted as the top seed at an institution whose AD has followed through for their soccer team with a halfway decent stadium. Go F I U!

I agree we can use renovations, but what else would you add? The field is in good condition. The stands are newer. Maybe we can add a cover over head? But the games are traditionally at night time.

You think the wooden bleachers are newer? Those things have been there since I came to FIU over 20 years ago. The little media shed was so dilapidated it was removed and turned into a media table and tent.

Nevermind. I thought they had updated the bleachers recently. Yes, we need renovation. I was thinking of the newer softball bleachers.

I was gonna say... if it's the same bleachers which were there when I was calling games for WRGP... those things were craptastic then and that was nearly 20 years ago. That's the one FIU sports facility where I actually worried about my safety... though, to be honest, the temporary press box at the old FIU football stadium made me nervous a few times during high winds.

When you have to ban the press box for safety reasons... I mean, seriously... that says everything you need to know right there.

Speaking of the old football stadium... I never understood why they didn't just take the bleachers which were there and reinstall them at the soccer stadium once the new stadium was built. It would've doubled capacity at the soccer field easily and it would've looked a lot better and been safer than what's there now.

I can't imagine it would've costed that much more to re-use that material instead of building new again. All you need to do then is just build a press box and you're good to go... assuming you couldn't have re-purposed the coaching boxes on the south side into press boxes and I would think they could have.

Anyway... can't fix the past now... I just hope we finally get around to fixing that place up someday. The men's team deserves it. Frankly, as fans, FIU should be doing all they can to fix that place up now. It's freaking crazy to have a top program in the nation playing in that dump. If they can't fix it, move the games to the football stadium and be done with it.

I know i've been checking haha.

They are up to 13th i think in topdrawersoccer.com and 18th in RPI .

I would think they crack the top 10 when they finally release the rankings, had 2 quality wins.

FIU soccer is up to number 8 in the polls! That's great!

Still undefeated, only other team is Indiana who dropped to number 2 behind Wake Forest.

Regardless of what happens in the C-USA tournament FIU should still be a top seed in the National tournament.

Let's go to the College Cup!
