With a nationally renowned faculty recognized for their outstanding teaching and cutting-edge research and a student body from throughout the United States and more than 130 foreign countries, FIU continues to grow and excel, achieving many benchmarks of excellence that have taken other universities more than a century to reach

H IS T OR Y A N D GR O WT H FIU was founded in 1965 and opened for classes in 1972 with 5,667 students - the largest opening day enrollment in U.S. collegiate history. Today it has more than 38,000 students, almost 1,000 full-time faculty and more than 124,000 alumni. FIU is one of the 25 largest universities in the nation, based on enrollment. The University offers more than 200 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in 21 colleges and schools. P R OGR A M S The University offers more than 200 bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral programs in 22 colleges and schools: College of Architecture and the Arts School of Architecture School of Music College of Arts and Sciences School of International and Public Affairs College of Business Administration School of Accounting College of Education College of Engineering and Computing School of Computing and Information Sciences Honors College College of Law College of Medicine (to welcome its first class in August 2009) College of Nursing and Health Sciences School of Hospitality and Tourism Management School of International and Public Affairs School of Journalism and Mass Communication College of Public Health and Social Work Stempel School of Public Health School of Social Work

FA C U LTY Ninety-five percent of the University’s full-time faculty holds doctorates or the highest degrees in their field. RESEARCH FIU emphasizes research as a major component of its mission. Sponsored research funding (grants and contracts) from external sources for the year 2005-06 totaled $92 million. The University is ranked as a Research University in the High Research Activity category of the Carnegie Foundation’s prestigious classification system. A TH LE TI C S FIU’s intercollegiate athletic teams compete in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I, the nation’s most competitive college sports division, the Sun Belt Conference and Conference USA. Seventeen sports programs are offered, including football (Division I-A), basketball, track & field/cross country, soccer, baseball, volleyball, softball, golf, tennis and swimming & diving. TH E B A N D O F TH E S U N The Band of the Sun is an important member of the FIU School of Music, made up of the best and brightest students from both the University Park and Biscayne Bay campuses. Representing over 30 majors and disciplines, the band is a microcosm of the diverse University and Miami cultures. In only its sixth year of existence, The Band of the Sun has already established itself as one of the premier collegiate marching bands in the State of Florida through a high standard of excellence in performance and entertainment. TH E FI U C H E E R LE A D E R S In 1998, the FIU Cheerleaders received national recognition when they won the National Cheerleaders Association Grand National Championship Award.

The squad performs at all football and home basketball home games.

T H E GOL D EN D AZ Z L E RS Formed in 1989, the Golden Dazzlers are FIU’s award-winning dance team. Over the course of its history, the group has won the NCA Dance National Championship and racked up third- and eighth-place finishes. The Golden Dazzlers, who perform at all home basketball and football games, as well as at school pep rallies and other special events, continue to place high annually at the National Dance Alliance Championship. T H E M A SC OT When FIU first opened its doors in 1972 the Sunblazer was its mascot. The Sunblazers represented FIU for 14 years, but in 1987, University President Dr. Modesto A. Maidique promoted a campaign to replace the Sunblazer with the Golden Panther, a mascot that better represented FIU and its ties to Florida’s natural environment. The University also adopted new school colors – blue and gold. This fall, the FIU Golden Panther got a makeover, and the result was a “meaner, leaner” predator. ALUMNI With more than 124,000 alumni, Golden Panthers constitute the fastest growing university alumni group in Miami-Dade County. FIU confers approximately half of all degrees now awarded by universities in Miami-Dade County. N A T I ON A L R ECO G NIT IO N The University is the youngest to have been awarded a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, the nation’s oldest and most distinguished academic honor society. FIU was recently ranked third in granting bachelor’s degrees to minorities (among the top 100 degree producing colleges and universities), according to Diverse Issues in Higher Education, June 1, 2006. FIU’s College of Law led all universities in the state with the highest pass rate of 94.4-percent on the 2007 Statewide Florida Bar Examination. The second highest pass rate belonged to Florida State University with 88.2-percent. U.S. News & World Report ranks FIU’s undergraduate international business program among the top 15 in the nation and their graduate programs among the top 25. The University has also been named one of the “10 Cool Colleges for Entrepreneurs” by Fortune Small Business magazine. One Executive MBA program was recently ranked #1 in Florida by Financial Times. The School of Hospitality and Tourism Management is one of the nation’s top programs. Other acclaimed programs include Creative Writing and Marine Biology.

With a year-round tropical climate, exciting attractions, professional and intercollegiate sports teams, art, history, museums and all of the nature parks and education one could ask for, Greater Miami and the Beaches has become a superstar of the world’s travel destinations. Due to its location in a tropical climate, Greater Miami and the Beaches has many activities and attractions that differ from most vacation spots. This tropical cosmopolitan city boasts some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and ecological wonders, such as the Everglades, right next to one of the world’s most vibrant urban centers. Miami, one of the most international cities in the hemisphere, is Florida’s largest urban center and a major transportation and business hub of the southeastern U.S. Greater Miami, which comprises the city of Miami and surrounding MiamiDade County, includes Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Hialeah and many smaller communities.

The Miami of the 21st century is an exciting, dynamic global marketplace. But being a global marketplace does not mean it is just a trading post for goods. Miami is a metropolis that is a major transfer station for peoples and ideas from throughout the world. Miami, once a town of tourists and retirees, has been reinvented into a hemispheric crossroads for trade, travel, culture and communications.

The Miami area’s history dates back to the discovery of the “New World.” Ponce de Leon saw the tip of Key Biscayne in 1513 and named it, more than 100 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. In the 1850s only about 50 persons lived permanently on Biscayne Bay, and it wasn’t until the 1870s that Bahamian wreckers helped found the area’s first real community, Coconut Grove. Miami was incorporated in 1896, the same year that Standard Oil co-founder and railroad magnate Henry Flagler decided to extend his railroad south from West Palm Beach to Miami.

In Greater Miami, you can spend hours, days or weeks entertaining yourself and your family without having to travel more than a few minutes in any direction. Nighttime entertainment includes music and dance clubs with music ranging from smooth sounding jazz to lively disco, comedy clubs, concerts, theater, opera, symphony and movies. Even with all that to do, virtually no one comes to Miami without taking a stroll along the beach. Come, have fun and enjoy.

During the land boom of the 1920s, Miami’s population swelled and, thanks to its inviting, subtropical climate, it emerged as one of the nation’s great winter resorts. Miami Beach is known for its historic art deco district and the numerous hotels that line its beaches, and the area is filled with marinas and golf courses. Since the 1950s, commercial growth has grown significantly. Miami International Airport is the nation’s largest international cargo hub and third in terms of international passengers. The Port of Miami is the number one cruise port in the world.

You can find affordable accommodations in Miami anytime of the year and while visiting, you’ll never go hungry for quality food. Greater Miami and the Beaches offer lots of great restaurants that will please anyone’s appetite -- everything from seafood to steaks and from Indian to Japanese and do it with a fantastic ocean view.


THE BEACHES If shopping is what you are looking for, Greater Miami offers a multitude of opportunities found few places in the world. High fashion shopping centers portray glamour, while the practical gift shopper may prefer a regional mall that has it all. There is no shortage of the unique as you stroll down the oceanfront filled with handsome antiques, explore one of a kind anti-malls, the hottest beach apparel or the latest retro outfit. Miami has it all for the nature lover. Glorious weather has always been a main attraction here due to South Florida’s sun-kissed days that feature bluer-than-blue skies and an average temperature of 76 degrees Fahrenheit. Guided boat tours and nature parks for all to enjoy are just part of the beautiful sights Miami has to offer. You can hike, bike, boat or take a ride on the tram to enjoy the breathtaking beauty of some of America’s best seascapes and landscapes. Whatever your pleasure Greater Miami is sure to please.

Miami is a sports enthusiast’s paradise. Fishing, scuba diving and water sport rentals, as well as much more are all on the menu for fun. So if you are looking to get out and enjoy the beautiful weather of South Florida and the fresh air over the Atlantic Ocean, you will find it all in Greater Miami and the Beaches. Above and beyond the much-celebrated spots, Greater Miami has a rich assortment of neighborhoods that offer charming nooks and crannies and off-the-beaten-path excursions. Built in the roaring ‘20s, Coral Gables is a prosperous and dramatically beautiful city, marked by Spanish-style mansions, huge ficus trees, coral rock pools, lush golf courses and a commercial area that’s jam-packed with specialty shops and restaurants. Like most ethnic enclaves, Little Havana and Little Haiti are brimming with immigrant optimism. The Moorish architecture of Opa-Locka, inspired by the Arabian Nights stories, is a stunning innercity collection of minarets, domes and horseshoe arches. South Dade offers a more rural ambiance and features must-see spots such as Everglades and Biscayne National Parks, Miami Metro Zoo, the Homestead Motorsports Complex and more. The waterfront city of Key Biscayne can only be described as an island paradise. It is a peaceful, well-preserved community crowned by the bucolic Bill Baggs State and Crandon Park, two of the most beautiful beaches in the United States. Access to the area is simple and convenient. Miami International Airport, equipped with a sun deck for that last-minute tan, is just a 20-minute drive from FIU-University Park. By land, Greater Miami is accessible via the Florida Turnpike, I-95, U.S. 1 and Amtrak’s rail system. The Port of Miami, the world’s largest cruise port, is a nautical link that connects Miami to the Caribbean and Latin America.

Florida International plays all its home games at University Park Stadium. The Frank Alonso and Family Locker Room, a fullyequipped training room, spacious dugouts, indoor hitting facilities and full bullpens in the right and left field foul territories creates an ideal setting for student-athletes and coaches. A seating capacity of 2,000 with unmatched sight lines, scoreboard, elevator, concession stands and stadium lighting provide a fan-friendly atmosphere that makes this house a home for the Golden Panthers. While the stadium has the amenities and necessities essential to a successful baseball program, improving the facility is a constant process. In just the last year, the coaches’ offices, alumni lounge and media area was completed on the third floor of the stadium, creating an area for those who helped build the program. Head coach Turtle Thomas and his staff have led a charge to further advance the stadium with new carpeting in the locker room and training room, as well as beginning the initial stages to pad the outfield fences, add a state-of-the art video board, expand the batting cages, construct a new weight room and add a family area in right field.

The evolution of FIU Baseball Stadium did not happen overnight. The completion of Phase I of a three-phase project that switched the positioning of the field culminated with a 1-0 win against Bethune-Cookman on Jan. 26, 1996 in front of a standing-room crowd. Fireworks and a first-ball ceremony that featured University President Dr. Modesto Maidique and many other dignitaries were part of the festivities. Phase II construction, which increased the stadium’s seating capacity by more than 1,000, forced the Golden Panthers to play in Homestead for some time before returning in 2002. More than $3.5 million was raised from student trust funds to complete the first two phases and former head coach Danny Price raised $100,000 to fund the construction of the batting cages. The expansion enabled FIU to host the 2005 Sun Belt Conference Tournament. Phase III of the project got underway in the spring of 2003 and was completed in 2007 with the finishing of the skybox, alumni lounge and media area. The field’s playing surface is natural grass and symmetrical field dimensions of 325 feet down the lines, 375 feet in the power alleys, and 400 feet to straightaway center field.

BASEBALL FACILITIES UPGRADES Since their arrival at FIU, Turtle Thomas and his staff have made numerous improvements to the baseball stadium and facilities. The biggest improvement to the stadium is the $75,000 project to pad the outfield wall and add decals honoring the four retired numbers in FIU Baseball history. The facilities also feature three full-length batting cages with two portable mounds. The press box has been upgraded by adding leveled seating to provide a better view for the media. The press area has also been sectioned off to separate it from the luxury suite. The suite offers the best accommodations at FIU Stadium, including premium seating, refreshments and even a high-definition television.

Stadium speakers have been replaced by new, state-of-the-art models, the carpeting has been replaced in the locker and training rooms, the bathroom in the locker room has new floor tiles, and even the dugouts have received a face-lift with a paint-job and the addition FIU & Sun Belt Conference decals. Also, flat-screen TV’s have been installed in the locker room. The outside of the stadium will also be re-painted. Plans are in place to replace the halo around home plate with a navy-blue one to match the outfield fence. Also, the pads on the backstop will be replaced with navy-blue ones. New on-deck circles will also be installed. In addition to the upgrades to the facilities, sine Thomas’ arrival every FIU Baseball home game has been available for viewing via webcast on Panther Pass. This will continue in 2009 as every home game is scheduled to be broadcast on FIUSports.com.

FIU Stadium opened on September 20, 2008 against South Florida A new era began on Saturday, September 20 when FIU hosted the University of South Florida. All along, the Golden Panthers have set aggressive goals and have been committed to competing at the highest level. FIU is building this tradition of excellence with Athletic Director Pete Garcia, Head Football Coach Mario Cristobal and a new on-campus stadium opening this fall.

FIU’s new stadium becomes the only Division I on-campus football stadium south of Orlando in Florida. “This puts FIU on an even playing field in terms of facilities,” said Coach Cristobal. “Now, local athletes have

Seating includes both chair back and bench seating with backrests for fan convenience. Additional phases of construction will include a student support complex and will bring the stadium’s seating capacity to approximately 45,000.

“This stadium is the crown jewel of FIU Athletics,” said Garcia. “It will is the vehicle that will take our athletic department to the next level.”

Nearly two-thirds of the stadium project will be funded from existing sources like athletic fees, game guarantees and existing vendor contributions. In addition, ticket sales will be applied toward financing improvements. The new stadium complex also opens the door to other sources of revenue like corporate sponsorship packages and naming rights, in addition to concerts, non-intercollegiate sporting events and other community activities that will take place at the stadium.

“This is a win-win: business-wise and student-experience wise,” said FIU Board of Trustee member Albert Dotson who is also the chair of the board’s athletics committee. “The stadium is an important step that speaks directly to university objectives such as creating affinity, developing the FIU brand and adding to the student experience. This will be a venue that will bring alumni back and help build FIU traditions.”

Future phases for the stadium include an adjacent 100,000 square-foot student center that will house undergraduate advising, admissions, financial aid and an alumni welcome center. Most of these services have been located on University Park in the Charles Perry Building. “The student body has more than doubled over the past two decades,” said University President Dr. Modesto A. “Mitch” Maidique. “We are now looking forward to providing these services in a more appropriate, comfortable and attractive environment.”

The stadium will also be the home of the brain trust of the FIU Football program with the completion of a two-story, 50,000-square foot fieldhouse in the early 2009.

Highlights of the new fieldhouse include a 12,500-square foot clean span weight room that will be used not only by Golden Panther football players but all FIU student-athletes for their strength and conditioning needs. Visitors will be greeted in a reception area that will also include a Hall of Fame area. The first floor will also contain an equipment room, athletic training complex, ticket office and 8,500-square feet of locker rooms for players and coaches. The fieldhouse’s second floor will feature coaches’ offices, a theater-style team meeting room and six breakout rooms, which overlook the field, for smaller gatherings. Those rooms also open to a deck that will be used for recruiting and game-day entertainment.

President Maidique said the entire complex achieves several objectives that will help to enhance the student experience at FIU. For example, the administrative portion of the complex will spread traffic and pedestrian patterns more evenly around campus. This becomes more critical as the university’s student body pushes well beyond its current 38,000 enrollment. “The new stadium will become a landmark and gathering place for the entire FIU community,” Dr. Maidique said. Odebrecht Construction, which has been operating in Florida for nearly 20 years, has been responsible for building another Miami sports icon—the American Airlines Arena— and the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County. “We have looked forward to building an excellent facility, one that will enhance the campus environment and contribute measurably to FIU athletics, student life and the broader community,” said Gilberto Neves, Odebrecht CEO.

tutors in subject areas for which they have expertise. A schedule of tutoring hours is maintained on the SAAC bulletin board and students are urged to sign up in advance for assistance. Students participating in tutoring are required to bring in the course syllabus and text along with the assignments for which they seek assistance. In addition, a trained ESOL specialist provides student-athletes for whom English is a second language with tutoring and assistance.

Individually, 46 percent of the Golden Panthers student-athlete population (161 of 349) made academic honors of 3.0 or better and eight recorded perfect 4.0 GPAs on the semester.

Another contributor to the success of FIU’s student-athletes is the commitment from the University administration to student-athlete academic excellence. In the past year President Modesto A. Maidique has led the charge to make sure FIU’s student-athletes have the same opportunity to excel in the classroom as they do on the field of competition with a spectrum of improvements:

Freshman and other student-athletes with less than 2.5 GPA are required to attend a monitored study hall weekly. The monitored study hall is open six days a week at times compatible with class and practice schedules. Tutors are available during evening study hall hours to assist student-athletes. A study hall monitor is on premise at all times to make sure student-athletes are making productive use of their time. Student-athletes must sign in and out of study hall through a computerized tracking system.

The entire University, including the Athletic Department, implemented multi-term registration, allowing students to register for two terms simultaneously, which makes for better planning to fulfill degree requirements. The SAAC was bolstered with increased funding, tutors, computers, graduate assistants and increased opportunities for summer school. The number of student-athlete tutors in the SAAC was doubled from seven to 14 in 2007-08.

All members of the Student Athlete Academic Center (SAAC) must work to safeguard the academic integrity of the institution and to insure compliance with the rules and regulations of the NCAA, the Sun Belt Conference and FIU. We also foster a welcoming environment in which all members of our diverse community receive support, feel valued, are safe and acquire self confidence.

$72,000 was set aside for technological improvements in the SAAC, resulting in the purchase of 20 personal computers and 25 laptops for student use.

F I U A T H L E T ICS MAKE S T HE G RADE

FIU’s student-athletes responded extremely well to increased opportunities to enroll in summer school classes with 95 percent passing their classes, allowing them to move ahead or stay on course to graduate.

After graduating 44 student-athletes at FIU spring commencement ceremonies in the spring of 2008, the Golden Panthers Intercollegiate Athletics Department learned that its semester academic grade point average was the highest in the history of the program. With the posting of spring grades, FIU student-athletes earned a 2.94 GPA for the semester, which was more than one-tenth of a point higher than the 2.82 achieved by the university’s general student population in Fall 2007.

FIU has more than tripled the operating budget of the SAAC from $62,000 to $195,000.

Two graduate assistants were added to the SAAC staff to assist the learning specialist and the SAAC will have a fifth academic coordinator on staff this fall.

While there are 31 NCAA conferences that sponsor multiple sports, the Sun Belt is one of only eleven to participate in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and Football Bowl Subdivision. The Sun Belt was formed in 1976 with six members competing in four men’s sports, and today comprises 13 institutions of higher learning while sponsoring 19 championship sports for men and women. The Sun Belt Conference enters its 33rd season in 2008-2009 with a proud history of athletic and academic success. The conference sponsors 10 women’s sports - basketball, cross country, golf, soccer, softball, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor and outdoor track and field, and volleyball; and nine men’s sports – baseball, basketball, cross country, football, golf, swimming and diving, tennis, and indoor and outdoor track and field. Each of the 19 sports has seen numerous team and individual accomplishments, and 12 Sun Belt Conference schools are currently graduating its student athletes at a rate higher than their school’s student body. All Sun Belt schools are committed to excellence in the 21st century, and facility upgrades and expansion are occurring on virtually every campus. During the 2007-08 academic year alone the Sun Belt Conference accomplished numerous feats. In the fall of 2007 Middle Tennessee and Western Kentucky University both represented the league in the NCAA Volleyball Tournament – the first time the Sun Belt has sent multiple teams to the NCAA Tournament in volleyball. Middle Tennessee did not disappoint, as the Blue Raiders advanced to the “Sweet 16” – marking the first time a Sun Belt school has made the round of 16 in volleyball. The Sun Belt momentum continued in the sport of football as Florida Atlantic defeated Memphis in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl. The win marked the second consecutive season that a Sun Belt team has defeated its Conference USA opponent as Troy defeated Rice in 2006. In men’s basketball, Western Kentucky University and South Alabama both received bids to the 2008 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament – the first the league has sent two teams to the “Big Dance’” since 1994. WKU’s 101-99 win over 14th ranked Drake followed by a 72-63 win over San Diego made the Hilltoppers the first Sun Belt team to reach the tournament’s “Sweet 16” since 1993. Despite losing more than half of the league’s All-Conference members from 2006-07, Sun Belt women’s basketball ranked in the top half (14th of 31) of the final league RPI rankings for the 10th consecutive year. In six of those ten years, Sun Belt women’s basketball has placed in the national top 10 for RPI. There was no shortage of success in the Sun Belt’s spring sports in 2008 as well. In tennis, FIU and Denver represented the Sun Belt in the NCAA Women’s Tennis Tournament – with the Pioneers advancing to the second round. In men’s tennis, South Alabama and Denver represented the league in the NCAA Tournament with USA advancing to the second round. Sun Belt golf was also well represented in postseason play as Middle Tennessee’s men’s team and Denver’s women’s team both reached the NCAA National Championship. Both the Blue Raiders and Pioneers finished in the top ten of their regionals to advance to the final stage of the NCAAs. The 2008 Sun Belt softball season saw Louisiana-Lafayette reach the Women’s College World Series after defeating Houston in three games in the Super Regionals and winning the NCAA Baton Rouge Regional by defeating East Carolina and in-state rival LSU twice. In baseball, the Sun Belt Conference has sent multiple teams to the NCAA tournament each year since 1988. The 20-year streak of having two or more teams reach NCAA play is matched by only four other conferences (ACC, Big West, SEC, Pac-10). Because of its status as a member of the Division 1-A football coalition, the Sun Belt Conference has a permanent seat on the NCAA’s 17-member Board of Directors. As a result, the conference has a crucial voice on some of the most pressing issues in college athletics and will always have a role in the implementation of any future NCAA legislation and guidelines. The conference continues to utilize television to grow and promote the league. Adding volleyball, baseball and softball to the conference’s television package has resulted in more national and regional television exposure for the league than at any time in its history. The conference’s regional television package enables live telecasts of Sun Belt events to reach over 20 million households. Additionally, ESPN televised the conference’s men’s basketball championship game for the 28th straight season in 2008, marking its longest affiliation with any conference in the country. The Sun Belt Conference has partnered with JumpTV Sports, Inc. to deliver a full-service, customized, public and premium web site to provide fans with a broad range of real-time information and content about the conference’s athletic teams. The Sun Belt is one of the few conferences in the nation to provide video highlights and features on its website from each of the league’s respective championships. This technology serves as a great recruiting tool for schools by enabling anyone in the world with internet access to view the conference’s championship events, and fans in five different countries viewed the conference’s most recent soccer championship. Prominent Sun Belt alumni include United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice (Denver), NFL Hall of Fame football player “Mean” Joe Greene (North Texas), Arizona

The conference’s first 32 years have also produced numerous individual national champions along with Olympic track medalists including Earl Bell, Tom Hill and Al Joyner (Arkansas State), Hollis Conway (Louisiana-Lafayette), and Tayna Lawrence (FIU). Old Dominion’s Anne Donovan received the Naismith Trophy recognizing the nation’s top women’s basketball player in 1983, helped the United States win the Olympic gold medal in 1984, and helped the Lady Monarchs capture the national championship in 1985 (one of eight women’s Final 4 appearances by Sun Belt schools: Old Dominion - 1983, 1985; WKU – 1985, 1986, 1992; Louisiana Tech – 1994, 1998, 1999). Sun Belt teams have also participated in the men’s NCAA Final 4 (UNC-Charlotte in 1977), the College World Series (Louisiana-Lafayette in 2000), the women’s College World Series (Louisiana-Lafayette in 1993, 1995, 1996, 2003, 2008), and had 10 players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft. The Sun Belt Conference is led by Commissioner Wright Waters, who is in his ninth full year as commissioner. He was named the conference’s fourth commissioner in February of 1999 following the tenures of Vic Bubas (1976-1990), Jim Lessig (1990-1991), and Craig Thompson (1991-1998). The league’s annual all sports champion is awarded the Vic Bubas Cup, named after the conference’s first commissioner. The conference office has been headquartered in downtown New Orleans since 2000 after moving from suburban Metairie, La., where it had been based since 1991. Prior to moving to the “Big Easy,” the league was based in Tampa, Fla., from 1977-1991. The original conference office was located in Charlotte, N.C., from 1976-77.

The Golden Panthers enter their second season under the direction of Turtle Thomas, and after Thomas’ first full recruiting class was ranked 15th in the nation by Perfect Game Crosschecker, it’s easy to see that the FIU Baseball program is heading in a new and exciting direction. “New” is also a word that comes to mind when thinking about this year’s Golden Panther squad.Returning just 11 players from last year’s team, FIU’s roster will feature 21 newcomers. “We’re probably the youngest team in America,” said Thomas. “We only have five guys back that really could be considered as full-time players for us last year in Steven Stropp, Tyler Tonwsend, Ryan Mollica, Jorge Marban and Corey Polizzano.” For coach Thomas, year two as the FIU head coach provides new challenges, but at the same time has a familiar feel to his first. “My first year, I didn’t really know the players at all or how they would respond to playing against teams with different colored uniforms,” said Thomas. “This year, again we have a lot of players we’re not familiar with. Having so many new guys, in a way it’s similar to last year. We need to see how they react when they take the field against someone other than their teammates.”

The players who are returning are not short on talent. Senior second baseman Mollica will look to build on his amazing 2008 campaign where he hit .413 en route to being named to the All-Sun Belt Conference first team. Tyler Townsend closed the ’08 campaign on an absolute tear, picking up 14 hits in 23 at-bats over his last six games, including five homers in that span to give him a team-best 14 on the season. Stropp had a very consistent season last year as he hit .289 while handling the pitching staff from behind the plate. His leadership skills were recognized by his teammates as he was voted as one of the team captains for 2009 along with Mollica. Polizzano and Marban are the two top returning hurlers for the Golden Panthers. The two combined for 108 strikeouts in ’08 and should once again be integral parts of the FIU pitching staff. Top Newcomers While coach Thomas knows what he will get from his returners, the team’s success in ’09 will depend largely on what the talented crop of newcomers brings to the table. This group of players will attempt to replace some of last

The area where Thomas is expecting the biggest improvement from last year is on the mound, and with good reason. Thomas’ recruiting class is rich in arms and many of them are expected to come in and provide solid innings right away. “Scott Rembisz will be our Friday night guy and Tom Ebert, RJ Fondon and Justin Leith are three starters that we’re hoping can step in and do a good job for us. Aaron Arboleya should get some time out of the bullpen with Eric Berkowitz being our main reliever. Mason McVay has worked hard to come back from injury and could work his way into the mix as well.”

“The losses of John Petika, Corey Lozano, Raimy Fuentes and Jorge Castillo are big losses. No doubt about it. But we have plenty of talent coming back and some of our new guys should be able to step in and help shoulder some of that load,” said Thomas. “Pablo Bermudez should step in and take one of those young men’s place. Garrett Wittels and Tim Jobe should also be able to step in as well. Raiko Alfonzo is another bat that we’re expecting big things out of.”

Infield The Golden Panther infield features two of the top-three returning bats in Mollica and Stropp. The two veterans should hit atop the FIU lineup, with Stropp looking like the cleanup hitter going into the season. Joining them in the infield are Raiko Alfonzo, Garrett Wittels and Sujo. Alfonzo is a third baseman with a good bat, while Wittels can play either third or short and is expected to start. Javy Sujo returns for his second season with the Golden Panthers and should get time at first base or at the DH spot. Tim Jobe should see plenty of at-bats as the team’s regular DH or at first base. Returner Junior Arrojo should also see playing time in the infield, providing much-needed depth. Outfield Former Freshman All-American and last year’s leading home run hitter Townsend will make a move to the outfield in ’09 after spending much of 2008 as the team’s regular first baseman. Townsend figures to hit in the 3-hole and could back up Sujo at first. Patroling centerfield will be freshman Pablo Bermudez. The highly-touted recruit is slated to also bat leadoff for the Golden Panthers offense. Returning junior Lammar Guy will slot in as Bermudez’s backup in center. A couple of newcomers figure to platoon in left field. Michael Vargas and Greg Wadell are the two likely candidates to man the third outfield spot. Sophomore Ty Main is expected to provide depth in the outfield as he can play either corner outfield spot. Pitching Staff During Thomas’ first year at the helm of the Golden Panthers, the pitching staff was without a doubt the team’s weakness. However, coach Thomas put his highly-regarded recruiting prowess to work, signing a very talented group of arms. In just one year, Thomas looks to have turned a weakness into a real strength. Perhaps the biggest addition to the staff is the JUCO All-American Rembisz. Last year at Manatee Community College, Rembisz was named the Florida JUCO Pitcher of the Year. This year, he is slated to be FIU’s Friday night starter. Joining Rembisz in the weekend rotation are junior lefty Polizzano and another JUCO transfer, in 6’6”

righty Tom Ebert. A couple of left-handers figure to round out the rotation with freshmen R.J. Fondon and Justin Leith slated as the mid-week starters. The bullpen also received a major facelift with four newcomers expected to see plenty of innings in relief. Miami Dade College transfer Berkowitz might be the stopper out of the bullpen along with sophomore returnee Marban. Returner Daniel DeSimone, freshman Aaron Arboleya and 6’7” lefty Mason McVay round out the bullpen regulars. One position player that also figures to spend some time on the bump is designated hitter Tim Jobe.

make up for the lost run production as it figures to be greatly improved in ’09. However, don’t discount the FIU offensive attack. The Golden Panther lineup returns three of its best hitters from 2008 and it will feature plenty of exciting and very capable newcomers. With a revamped pitching staff and an always dangerous offense, 2009 is looking like the year when the Golden Panthers bounce back and thrust themselves into contention for a Sun Belt Conference championship.

Schedule After playing some of the nation’s best in ’08, the Golden Panthers’ schedule doesn’t figure to get much easier in ’09. The schedule features some of the best teams in the country like Florida State and Tennessee. While the ACC and SEC teams might stand out, coach Turtle Thomas sees many more tough challenges ahead. “Playing Jacksonville five times is never easy. They’re a squad who has everybody back and should be dangerous. Florida Gulf Coast is a good ball club. South Florida has a good young developing team. North Florida is another solid team in our state. Central Florida is under the direction of a new coach, so they should be energized. Florida State is an opponent that stands out, obviously. Playing in the Coastal Carolina Baseball at the Beach Tournament will pose a great challenge with Coastal Carolina being a super-regional team and Tennessee an SEC squad.” Overall Outlook Coach Thomas came to FIU with the reputation of being one of the best recruiters in all of college baseball. He is quickly showing why as he put together a very talented class in his first full year of recruiting. While the offense might not produce at the same pace it did in 2008, the pitching staff should more than W W W . F I U S P O R T S . C O M

TURTLE THOMAS Head Coach Second Season 32nd season overall in NCAA High Point (1975)

FIU began a new era on June 14, 2007 with the hiring of arguably the top assistant coach and recruiter in all of college baseball. It was a day more than three decades in the making for a man who had honed his skills at some of college baseball’s elite programs, bringing them 19-consecutive top-10 recruiting classes, 14 College World Series appearances and two national championships. It was a day Henry “Turtle” Thomas patiently waited for and rightfully earned. “After 30 years of coaching college baseball, I’m very excited to lead the FIU baseball program,” Thomas said. “I’m very appreciative of (FIU) President Mitch Maidique and Athletic Director Pete Garcia, that those two gentlemen have given me this opportunity.” “We look forward to making the FIU community excited about baseball again and we’re looking forward to the challenge.” Some of the most-successful programs in college baseball’s recent history grace Thomas’ resume, including Clemson, Georgia Tech, Miami, Louisiana State and his most recent stop, at 2007 CWS participant, Arizona State. “We are very fortunate to be able to hire a coach as talented as Turtle Thomas,” Garcia said. “He knows the game, he’s the best recruiter in the country and he knows South Florida. He will bring excitement and interest to FIU baseball. “The journey to Omaha begins today.” It’s a journey that Thomas has made on 14 occasions at four different schools. He has coached in more College World Series than any active head coach. Thomas’ goals for FIU are twofold: to get the community involved and to win, on the field and in the classroom. Simple tasks? No. But the untiring work ethic that belies his placid demeanor assures that he will accomplish his goals. He is committed to getting the job done. In his first semester at FIU, 19 players earned a 3.0 grade-point average or better, including four on the Dean’s List. The effort and work ethic Thomas helped instill on the field was transferred to the classroom, resulting in a combined team GPA of 3.04, the highest in the program’s history. Thomas’ first full recruiting class at FIU was ranked 15th in the Nation by Perfect Game Crosschecker. He opened the doors of University Park Stadium on January 18 for the Tamiami Park Little League Opening Ceremonies and addressed thousands of kids on the 128 teams, and their parents, inviting them to become a part of the FIU Baseball Family. His staff has already compiled a list of all the civic and youth organizations in South Florida to set up speaking engagements. “FIU is hiring the hardest-working coach I’ve ever been around,” Arizona State head coach Pat Murphy said. “He’s relentless and he’s a good person. He is a legend in college baseball for his recruiting efforts and great coaching at winning programs. “Everything Turtle Thomas is around turns to gold. I feel FIU will be as good a program as they’ve ever been with him there, and will reach new heights.” Thomas played a major role in the Sun Devils’ success in the 2007 season, helping lead the team to a No. 3 national ranking. ASU ended the season with the nation’s third-best team batting average (.345) and slugging percentage (.531), and ranked second in scoring (9.4/game). The Sun Devils also led the country in fielding percentage (.979).

THOMAS IN OMAHA No active head coach has coached at the College World Series as many times as Turtle Thomas. Thomas has been to 14 as an assistant coach with four different teams, putting him at the top of a distinguished list.

Prior to helping ASU return to Omaha, Thomas served as recruiting coordinator and hitting coach at LSU from 2000-06, winning a national title with the Tigers during his first year on the job. “Pete Garcia has made a great choice in Turtle Thomas,” legendary college baseball coach and current LSU Athletic Director Skip Bertman said. “He is tremendous as a one-on-one coach. It can’t be a coincidence that Turtle left a championship program like Miami and came to LSU the next year and helped us win a championship. “Turtle will be a winner. There is no doubt about that.” The Tigers went to the CWS two more times during Thomas’ tenure (2003 and ‘04) and he oversaw impressive offensive and individual performances. Catcher Brad Cresse led the nation in home run (30) and RBI (106) on his way to winning the Johnny Bench Award in 2000. That same year, Mike Fontenot was named SEC Freshman of the Year, helping LSU set SEC records for hits and doubles, and a school-record .340 average. Shortstop Aaron Hill was named the 2003 SEC Player of the Year and outfielder Jon Zeringue won the honor the following season.

Thomas addressed more than 100 staff, media, fans and family at University Park Stadium when he was hired on June 14, 2007.

TO THE SHOW Thomas has brought in 19 straight top-10 recruiting classes at four different schools. His eye for talent and prowess at developing that talent speaks for itself. Oftentimes it isn’t a matter of if his signees develop into talented pros but rather, when. Below is a list of Major Leaguers Thomas coached at Miami and LSU:

At LSU: Roy Corcoran, pitcher Mike Fontenot, infielder Brad Hawpe, outfielder Aaron Hill, infielder Trey Hodges, pitcher Ryan Jorgensen, catcher Todd Linden, outfielder Brian Tallet, pitcher Ryan Theriot, infielder Brian Wilson, pitcher

At Miami*: Pat Burrell, outfielder Alex Cora, infielder Jorge Fabregas, catcher Alex Fernandez, pitcher Danny Graves, pitcher Bobby Hill, infielder Aubrey Huff, outfielder Charles Johnson, catcher Jason Michaels, outfielder *also signed Chipper Jones and Alex Rodriguez

THOMAS’ CAREER General Accomplishments ��� Two National Titles (1999, Miami; 2000, LSU) • 14 College World Series Appearances • Coached, recruited and signed dozens of future Major Leaguers • 19 Top-10 recruiting classes Thomas has coached in more College World Series (14) than any other active head coach in Division I and he has coached more than 60 players who went on to have Major League careers.

In 2004, LSU led the SEC in seven offensive categories, including average (.333) and on-base percentage (.400). Overall, LSU led the SEC in hits, runs and RBI in four of Thomas’ seven years in Baton Rouge. In 1988 he was named assistant coach and recruiting coordinator at Miami by Hall of Fame coach Ron Fraser. The Hurricanes reached the CWS nine times in Thomas’ 12 years in Coral Gables, winning a National Championship in 1999, and going to Omaha six-straight seasons (199499). From ‘96-98, UM posted a collective .334 batting average, .557 slugging percentage and scored more than nine runs per game. The ‘96 Hurricanes set a school record with a team batting average of .343. “You have a great guy in Turtle Thomas,” said the legendary Fraser. “He can recruit and he knows where to find the best guys. He can coach and he is such a hard worker. This is great for FIU and they are lucky to have him. He helped our program at Miami so much when he was there.” Thomas began his Division I coaching career at Clemson, where he spent eight seasons and helped the Tigers reach the 1980 CWS. He moved on to Georgia Tech and spent two years as the assistant head coach under current Miami head coach Jim Morris before heading to Coral Gables. While his experience and expertise as a coach are impressive, Thomas’ skills as a recruiter are unmatched. He had 19-straight recruiting classes ranked among Collegiate Baseball’s Top 10 at Miami and LSU. He is the only recruiting coordinator in the nation who has signed the No. 1 rated class four times, and he has never had a class rated lower than ninth over a 19-year span. Thomas has also signed the second-rated class four times. Every class he signed at LSU ranked in the Top 6, including his 2004 class, which was considered the best in the country. The roll call of major leaguers Thomas recruited and coached numbers more than 60. The list includes Charles Johnson, Alex Fernandez, Pat Burrell, Danny Graves, Alex Cora, Aubrey Huff, Aaron Hill, Jason Michaels and Brad Hawpe. A 1975 graduate of High Point (N.C.) College, Thomas earned a master’s degree from UNC-Greensboro in 1978. He was a four-year letterman at catcher, playing two seasons at Campbell University before completing his final two undergraduate years at High Point. Thomas is married to the former Maria Carmen Nateman, and they have three children, Kevin, Kristen and Keith.

SEAN ALLEN Assistant Coach Recruiting Coordinator/Pitching Second Year Houston (2001)

Sean Allen joined FIU as one of college baseball’s rising young coaches, possessing a wealth of postseason experience as a collegiate player and coach. Following six successful years as an assistant coach at the University of Houston, Allen serves as FIU’s recruiting coordinator, infield coach and assists with hitting. “Sean has a great background as collegiate player,” head coach Turtle Thomas said. “He moved into the coaching ranks right out of school because of his great ability as an instructor.” While at Houston, Allen served in a similar capacity working with the Cougar infielders and as the hitting coach. Allen’s teams were exemplary at the plate and on the diamond, helping the Cougars earn NCAA Tournament berths in 2002, ’03 and ’06, and advance to the NCAA Super Regionals in 2002 and ’03. Under Allen’s direction, the Cougars never posted a fielding percentage less than .962 and were ranked nationally in 2003, ’04 and ’06. He also played a major role in the offensive development of consensus All-American Brad Lincoln, who was named the National Player of the Year by four different entities in 2006. In 2006, Allen’s lineup hit 71 home runs -- the fifth-highest total in UH single-season history -- with All-Conference USA First-Team performer Matt Weston leading the way with 16 homers. The Cougars batted .314 and had a slugging percentage of .544 that season. Allen also mentored outfielder Travis Tully, who hit .430 in C-USA games. Seven different Cougars put together hitting streaks of 10 games or more in 2004 under Allen, setting a school record. In 2003, Allen helped lead the Cougars to the College Station Super Regional, coaching the team to a .312 post-season batting average to help bring UH within one game of earning a trip to the Col-

32

lege World Series. He began his coaching career as a student assistant in 2002, working with the UH infield and serving as the team’s first base coach. A four-year letterman with the Cougars from 1998 to 2001, Allen ended his playing career as UH all-time leader with 542 assists in the field. In addition, his 192 assists in 2000 was the second-highest total in UH single-season history. During his playing days, the Cougars competed in an NCAA Super Regional and advanced to NCAA postseason play in three consecutive seasons. He earned All-C-USA Tournament honors as a junior. A 1998 graduate of Carlsbad High School in Carlsbad, N.M., Allen was a three-time All-District 4-4A honoree and helped the team to four-straight state semifinals, and a state championship in 1996. He was honored as the league’s Defensive Player of the Year as a sophomore and junior. Allen earned his bachelor’s degree in sports administration from the University of Houston in 2001. He is single and resides in Davie.

Pete Garcia was introduced as FIU’s Director of Athletics on October 10, 2006, and joined the Golden Panthers after a year as the senior associate athletic director at the University of Miami. While serving his second stint at UM as the senior associate athletic director for external operations in 2005, he oversaw the school’s media relations, ticket sales, marketing and corporate sponsors like Nike, Gatorade and Coca-Cola. Garcia first worked at Miami from 1990 through 2000, and in 1992 he became the football program’s recruiting coordinator. In that position, Garcia was instrumental in recruiting football players like current NFL veterans Vernon Carey, Andre Johnson, Ray Lewis, Bryant McKinnie, Santana Moss, Clinton Portis, Ed Reed, Jeremy Shockey, Jonathan Vilma and Vince Wilfolk. In 2001, Garcia joined former Miami coach Butch Davis with the Cleveland Browns as its director of football development. Two years later, he was promoted to vice president. Born in Havana, Cuba, Garcia’s family came to Miami in 1967. He graduated from Hialeah High School and the University of Miami before landing a job with the Miami Dolphins in 1989. Since arriving at FIU, Garcia, 46, has worked tirelessly at promoting the FIU athletic program while instilling a commitment of excellence with his coaches, department staff and student-athletes. Under Garcia, the athletic department has added more advisors, tutors and computers to the academic support program for student-athletes and hired more compliance officers to ensure compliance with NCAA rules and regulations. That investment paid immediate dividends. FIU graduated 59 student-athletes during the 2007-08 academic year, the highest number of athletic graduates in the history of the program. Not only did FIU’s student-athletes post a higher cumulative grade point average (2.90) than the general student body last spring, but 41-percent also earned academic honors and 59 of the 352 enrolled student-athletes garnered Dean’s List recognition. “Our No. 1 priority is to ensure that all of our student-athletes have the resources and support necessary to graduate, get their degrees and get ready for the outside world. That’s the reason we are in business,” Garcia said. Upon his hiring, Garcia immediately began evaluating programs and shuffling his coaching staff in an effort to turn FIU’s athletic fortunes. He brought in proven winners like Arizona State assistant Henry “Turtle” Thomas to take over the baseball team, the University of Houston’s Beth McClendon, who took over the softball team and was named the Sun Belt Coach of the Year in her first season at the helm, and Mario Cristobal, a former assistant at UM and Rutgers, who embodies the qualities Garcia seeks in all his new hires. “They all know their games, they are relentless workers and exceptional recruiters,” Garcia said. “Basically, that’s the blueprint of everybody we’ve hired.” “Winning for us is a philosophy,” said FIU President Dr. Modesto A. Maidique, “and part of winning is not only recruiting great talent but also making smart use of the talent you have. I’m confident this team, led by Pete Garcia, will continue to build FIU and be synonymous with winning.” Garcia has also been charged with overseeing construction and operation of the university’s new on-campus football stadium, which opens this fall at University Park. The 18,000-seat facility, with expected future expansion to 45,000, is the only Division I on-campus football stadium south of Orlando in Florida. Garcia says that directing the Golden Panthers has given him an opportunity to further his career without leaving the community he loves. “South Florida has been very good to me and what better way to pay it back than establishing another elite sports program the community can rally behind,” Garcia said. “Our goal is to get our alumni and students excited about this program and ensure that our student athletes have all the tools to compete at the highest levels.”

2009 Sun Belt Tournament Seeding The final conference standings will determine seeded positions for the first round of the tournament. In the event of a two-way tie in the standings, the following tiebreaker system will be used — in order — until the tie is broken: 1. Results of each team in head-to-head competition. 2. Results of each team vs. the first-place team, or their composite records against any team tying for first place. 3. Records of each team vs. the second-place team, or their composite records against any team tying for second place. 4. This process continues with records vs. the third-place team, fourth-place team, etc., if necessary, until the tie is broken and seeding is complete. 5. If a tie still exists, a coin flip shall be conducted by the Conference office.

In the event of a three-way tie in the standings, the following tiebreaker system will be used — in order — until one team demonstrates a clear superiority or inferiority over the other two. When this occurs, that team will be seeded highest of the three teams, and the remaining tie between the other two will be broken by following the steps listed above:
