The #5 seed Michigan Wolverines take on the #1 seed Indiana Hoosies tonight in the Big Ten Tournament. Indiana beat #8 Iowa 5-2 yesterday while Michigan beat #4 Minnesota 3-2 with a 3-run Home Run by Travis Maezes being Michigan's only source of income. Michigan has lost to Indiana twice but beaten them once. Indiana is good but Michigan can win if we play well. Brett Adcock will be on the mound for Michigan.

Also, Nebraska just beat Sparty 3-2 to advance. Iowa beat Minnesota 2-1 to knock out Minnesota and Illinois edged out Ohio State 6-5 to knock out the Buckeyes. If Michigan wins we play the winner of Indiana-Iowa while if we lose we play Iowa..
Don't we play Iowa if we lose?
Yes, loser plays Iowa.
This fucking sucks.
This game is going to end at 2am and I have to get up 6.
Enjoy the game.
Stay up and watch the game.
On the Friday before Memorial Day when I was a senior in high school, I drove up to Mount Pleasant to watch Michigan baseball play Temple in the NCAA regionals.
The game was rained out.
all nighter. You're a senior and it's a friday.
Not like I'm doing anything tomorrow anyways.
The brilliant politicians think the people who do show up are actually going to do something on the extra day they added due to the excess snow days we had.
Today was senior skip day and from what I've heard, the place was empty.
Apparently, if there isn't 75% (LOL) tomorrow, they're going to add another day for the non-seniors. Good luck with that one.
handle the situation and they think the kids need to go to school to get smarter.
I finished high school two years ago today. It's kinda depressing to think it's already been two years when it seems like yesterday.
My comcast guide says the game should be on!
Weather/Jim Delany putting it out there/one hour buffer between games.
First pitch is 10:57.
Adcock is getting the start.
I was in a panic. Now I can grab a drink an relax.
Well the New york rangers just scored to tie up the game.
These unis are god fucking awful
Seriously. This looks like a misguided "turn back the clock" attempt. Not as bad as the infamous MLB uniforms of the future from the mid-to-late 90's, but nothing ever is. Still really, really bad.
These are cookie cutter uniforms. I love adidas but these are fucking awful.
The bigger LOL is MDen charging over $100 for that thing.
have no historical significance that I'm aware of. In 1978 Michigan wore traditional uniforms
Rick Leach and they didn't change much over the next couple decades.
Nebraska wore their awful home version of these last night. Its an Addidas thing
awful. I hate that I like Indiana's about ten times more. The wide highlighter yellow stripes are a great way to screw up a home jersey.
If the ump is calling that inside pitch like that to lefties, we won't be scoring a lot
M works out of a big jam in the 5th. Still 0-0. As I type, we get our first hit.
Ok I have to be honest here as a huge wolverine fan (have followed the football, basketball and hockey team religiously for near a decade) this is the first baseball game I have really paid attention to. Before today it was simply a team I checked in on but for some reason after the softball win (yes I have paid some attention to the softball team, usually post season only but this year throughout) I felt inclined to track the baseball game on the gametracker as well. Now I'm done work and about an hour deep at bar (6+ beers) I am very depressed following this game.
To close the loop on this, Indiana wins 5-0. Michigan manages just one hit and plays Iowa tonight.
