the just released schedules were a flat-out statement that the B10 doesn't believe SOS will matter in playoff selection
Vandy would score a run later in the inning to get a 4-3 lead. Sucks so bad for the 1st baseman because he had the catch otherwise. To take that fall for nothing? Ouch.

The OT sports topics on this forum run the gamut from the the NHL to the NBA and others. But one sport I've never seen discussed is Formula 1. Anyone else interested in F1? Driver/Team favorites? Most exciting storylines? I've only been paying attention since the 2004 season, but my loyalties lie with the old guard: Schumacher, Barichello, Massa, and Kubica. Now that he's with Ferrari, I even like Alonso. Drivers/teams I don't typically cheer for but have no ill towards include the Red Bulls (advertising scheme spawns a race team, yuck) and Lewis Hamilton. I've seen too much immature behavior from him. This, of course, makes me seem insane for being an Alonso fan I realize. Anyway, with Monte Carlo just a week away, I thought I'd provide a place for fellow fans to discuss.
The Oakland A's dallas braden just threw a perfect game against tampa bay, the second consecutive year the rays have been victim to a perfect game
So we are about a month out and I can't really wait. For the most part, this thread could have probably waited two weeks, but the Wings are out, the Pistons are the Pistons, the NFL is in a dead period, and we have some time before softball and baseball reach their post seasons. So what the hell? A couple questions to start and if there's anyone that wants to talk some WC that's cool too.
- First, can any of the powers that be (Brian, Tim, FA) shed some light on what WC coverage is gonna be like here? Can we expect a full out USMNT analysis and WC preview of some sorts in the coming weeks (please!)?
- Is there any high-quality blog which I can be directed to? Way back when I know Brian threw around the idea of starting an USMNT blog. Is there one out there that can come close to the analysis and humor that we get here?
Any other ideas to prepare now that we are about a month out? Maybe even some ideas for around these parts?
In their 2nd to last series of the regular season, Softball took 2 from the Spartans in a home-and-home. On senior night in Ann Arbor on Saturday, pink-clad (for breast-cancer) Wolverines absolutely obliterated FYS, 10 - 0, in a one-hit, 5 inning, mercy-rule affair. Sunday's game was not so easy, with State leading 1 - 0 heading into the final inning at home. Amanda Chidester, however, capitalized on two hit batters and an error from the Spartan ace, and smashed her first grand slam of the season. Nemitz, who finished the game with no earned runs, made the lead stand up in the bottom of the 7th.
The Wolverines will close out the Big Ten season with a pair of games at Iowa. Wins will secure an outright Big Ten championship.
Overall not the best card in terms of names but some good fights and a couple of bad ones. Rua looked like he's returned to his Pride days in the demolition of Machida. Was very impressed with Belcher who is slowly working his way towards a title shot with another win or two. Kimbo just needs to quit MMA, period. He is awful and it's pretty obvious he can't overcome any type of adversity in a fight. As soon as he takes punishment he wilts. Probably the strangest fight though was Koscheck-Daley. The "phantom" knee, as they called it, was something because it cut Koscheck. Daley gets my award now for fighter I hate the most. I'm not a Kosheck fan but hitting soemone after the fight is ridiculous and Rogan was right - he could've very easily been in jail. July 3rd please get here - Lesnar vs. Carwin.
