"In response to CBSSports.com's request for Michigan's concussion management protocol, the athletic department sent the NCAA's 11-page document for treating head injuries."
Round 2 voting for NOTY has begun, and Leviticus is losing to some jabroni that wasn't born with the name they're competing with. We need to fix this, vote here!
Amazing story posted to Dave Brandon's blog: softball coach Carol Hutchins and assistants give recruit's father CPR and use an AED when he suffers a heart attack. The man was taken to UM hospital and survived.
Nice save, coach.http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/brandon/spec-rel/051411aaa.html
The Michigan softball team took a second game in a row against lil sister 8-0. It was also back to mercy rule wins. We did the same earlier against tosu. What a great time dominating our rivals by back to back mercy rule wins against both teams.
The win clinched the Big Ten Title outright. It was the 4th straight Big Ten Title. No other team has accomplished that feat.
The game was a no hitter for JT, she struck out 6 and walked 2. It was the 8th career no no for JT in her career.
Ashley Lane went 1 for 2 with 3RBI and a run scored off a tater to RF. Chiddy went 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs and a run scored.
Now we must wait to see what the TC thinks of the strong finish this year and reward us with a #2 National Seed.
Blue Dragon? How about one more for the final regular season game?????
Good evening everyone,
It seems that New York Rangers enforcer, and generally feared tough guy, Derek Boogaard was found dead in his apartment in Minneapolis on Friday. Boogaard had played five years in the league with the Minnesota Wild before signing with the NYR this past season.http://sports.nationalpost.com/2011/05/13/derek-boogaard-found-dead-in-m...
Boogaard was a native of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and will be remembered as an absolutely brutal enforcer after his beating of Todd Fedoruk.
RIP Derek Boogaard.
Verlander, coming off a no-hitter, kept his no-hit streak going for another 5 2/3 innings today before finally giving up a hit. Tigers lead 3-1 in the bottom of the 7th.
Altogether, Verlander pitched 15 2/3 consecutive no-hit innings, spread over three starts. Johnny Vander Meer in 1938 remains the only pitcher to throw two straight no-hitters. I wonder if anyone since then has come closer than JV did tonight.
The Michigan Softball team is hosting Lil' sister tonight at Alumni Field. Nicole Sappingfield is silently missing from the line up. She injured her knee on the last play of the game last weekend. A result from a collision for a fly ball.
Lindsay Doyle is batting in the #2 slot and defensively in LF. Marley Powers takes Lindsay's DH position at the #8 slot.
Michigan comes into the weekend #2 in the nation. ASU remains #1, and hosts #12 Stanford this weekend. ASU won the first game of three today 3-1.
In the Big 10 race, Indiana won today 2-1 as they host Purdue this weekend.
UPDATE: Michigan scored 2 in the bottom of the 6th for the mercy rule win. Dorian Shaw was the offensive hero today going 2 for 2 with 3 RBIs and 1 run scored, including the 2 run walk off in the 6th. Amanda Chidester went 1 for 2 with 2 RBIs and a run scored. Caitlin Blanchard went 1 for 3 with 2 RBIs.
JT was awesome on the rubber today for the shutout. She had a perfect game going into the 5th inning. She finished with 1 hit and 13 Ks with zero walks. What a great time to get back on track from her rotator cuff injury.
Now all we need is Colie to come back next week.
Congrats to all the seniors. Thank you so very much for all your dedication to Michigan and the sport of Softball. You all will be missed very much. Everyone here on MGoBlog wishes you all the success in the world after this season.
But first, lets win a NC. Blue Dragon?????? Show us how its done.
