The Miami Herald???

We may have questioned this before!

Why does the Miami Herald NOT have FAU listed under sports on their website? They have FIU, UM, FSU & UF. What kind of crap is that ??? I do understand that the Sun Sentinel and Palm Beach Post are in our backyards, but why would you intentionally leave out a South Florida Team?

I think we should ban reading The Miami Herald from here on out! OK, I will get off of my soapbox! What can I say, I'm a devoted OWL fan!!!!

Go see if you can find fiu on the sun sentinels site. They eliminated it.

I guess is because of cutbacks, especially in the newspaper industry, there isn't anyone to cover it. FAU still has the Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel.

Yes, try to find FIU on the SS.
FAU is under "other Colleges". in the MH
I wrote an email to Pete Pelegrin who writes for FIU telling him to have more positive stories about FAU.
Him or the other writer would post stories every time FAU would lose, not when FAU had won or beat strong opponents.
For example,
The Miami herald never wrote anything when FAU beat UF in baseball. They posted something when FAU was beat by UM in baseball.
They did not post how FAU beat FIU twice before the baseball tourney. The title was " FAU made it to the tourney despise loss to FIU"
The Miami Herald did not post anything when FAU mercy ruled out FIU from the tourney.

basically, the pick and choose their stories for their own convenience, so they don't look bad when they lose. It is understandable that they wouldn't post anything in favor to their opponents; besides I don't know how big the FAU fan base is in Miami. Even some news channels did not say anything when FAU beat FIU last year in the Shula Bowl. They just simply ignored the fact. These channels also have not updated FAU logos.

Well, wasting too much energy here on this subject.
The MH is the UM's newspaper and they are giving some recognition to FIU lately. I think the deserve it.

GO OWLS.
