fair point that
I went through the comments section of the Guess the Score, Win Stuff: Utaugh contest. 24-17 was a pretty popular score to predict, and would have won had Rudock simply connected on the long TD pass instead of the pick-six. As it turns out, only two people correctly guessed the 17-24 final score. Those people were 'jblaze' and 'GoBlue96'. An additional three people guessed 17-23, being off by only one point. Those people were 'Trebor', 'Above and Beyond', and 'Ellerbe is Yoda'. No one predicted a 16-24 or 18-24 result because they're not writing the preview for the main page, so these three are runner-ups.
According to the rules, only the two people that picked the correct score win. However, since we have five award-winners this week, I would be in favor of amending the rule and allowing the off-by-one guessers to also win. Others may selfishly disagree, preferring to screw the runner-ups and add the three books to next week; given I've already ordered the book I don't care.
Peas in a Pod - Minnesota assistant AD takes a leave of absence from the univ after five anonymous complaints
First the AD, now his hand picked assistant. Another black eye for Minnesota.
University of Michigan softball RHP Sara Driesenga will return for a fifth year in 2015-16 after earning a medical hardship upon the conclusion of the 2015 season and regaining the year of eligibility. Driesenga, now a graduate student in the School of Social Work, appeared in seven games before losing the remainder of the season to injury.
"Last year's curse is this year's blessing," said Michigan head coach Carol Hutchins. "We are very excited to have Sara back on our staff. She's a great pitcher, and she's going to be great asset to Team 39."
A two-time All-Big Ten first team and NFCA Great Lakes All-Region selection (2012, '13), Driesenga owns a career record of 49-25 with 405 strikeouts, 12 complete-game shutouts and nine saves. As a sophomore, she established a Michigan record with 54 appearances while tossing 26 complete games and eight shutouts and striking out 233 batters in 263.1 innings. She defeated Arizona State with a complete-game shutout in the WCWS.
A senior captain in 2015, Driesenga played in the Wolverines' first two tournaments, earning a 4-0 record with a sterling 0.78 earned-run average through 27 innings pitched.
A three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree, she earned her undergraduate degree in psychology with an emphasis on sport psychology and a minor in gender and health in April 2015. She is now pursuing a master's degree in social work.
After a loss in the national championship game last season, M should be primed to make another serious run this year, especially with Driesenga back.
Since there is so much interest in BLL, I thought I would mention JUB will be at Rackham Auditorium tonight at 7pm for a book reading, Q&A and signing. Apparently there will be presigned copies available and he mentioned on WTKA that he will sign personalized copies. It is a free event, so a great opportunity and they will be taking audience questions.
He also has an extensive list of appearances here .
There are signings throughout the country.
You can also listen to the WTKA podcasts from his appearance on the show yesterday here.
Since we are in lock-down mode for OT season, but an express waiver was given by LSA for drinking threads, here it is.
What is in your glass/bottle/can? EDIT: I should add that I'm having some red-pop, as usual. Blackstone merlot, pleasant, not too sweet.
What was the agenda for your Saturday? I see a number of you watched an actual, and apparently very exciting, college football game.
And while we're at it, where are you going to be Thursday for kick-off? I will be ending football practice early and sending the kids home so that we can make it back to our home for kick off. We re-up'd on satellite TV yesterday, so we wait with anticipation.
