I just polished off a chimichanga from BTB and am drinking Oberon. Also have some chips and queso on the side. Let's do this!
Softball vs FSU open thread
Burgers on the grill and margarita's with the misses. Let's win the first game to I can pass out on the couch early. Been a looooooong week!
anyone know of a stream that will work overseas?
Does anyone have a link to watch the game?
ESPN3 / WatchESPN if you have a provider that they deal with.
Do softball threads often not post on the main board for anyone else? I can only see the thread on the sidebar and the same happened in an ASU open thread.
Anyway, Megan Betsa gets the start, let's see how she does against O'Brien to lead off.
Shouldn't. I created this on my phone though...
Threads created on the mobile app don't always show up on the board. It's a glitch in the matrix.
I only look at the side bar for anything on the board so I have never noticed otherwise
They want her to bat.
So FSU stadium is a pitchers park- same wall distance as Alumni field. So I guess we are a pitchers park as well. What is the average softball field in college? It's 200-220-200 at alumni and here. Similar foul territory.
with that big K at the end. That has been rattling around in her brain all night.
Faithful in attendance making some noise! Love it!
Hutch is going to rip the ump apart this game.
Hutch is going to get tossed if she's not careful. Coming out of the dugout at all on a ball/strike call is not good for business.
Meh. She will usually do that (top step of dugout or one step out) a handful of times every game. Nothing happens unless it's very routine or she comes all the way out and really gets on them. It's what she does. I love it
Say what you will- but I am glad alumni field doesn't have ads like FSU
Nice - good job getting out of the inning. Let the onslaught begin! GO BLUE!!!!
Fairly inconsistent strike zone early. Hopefully it gets smoothed out over the next couple innings.
WD, where are you? We all know you don't have school or anything to worry about right now.
I'm here. I'm waiting to chime in on something.
You graduated from HS this year and are attending U-M this fall, correct?
Not going to Michigan.
I'm not good enough but I'm gonna make sure my kids are not just good enough, but a lock.
I'm proud of the 3.1 I earned and that I'm the first in my family to go to college, but the standard for future generations is Michigan.
Hey, congrats. Any idea if you want to ever work for the Athletic Department or is what part of you enjoy the outside research about UM sports you can do?
nice bloop single for Doyle
runners on 2, 3 with 1 out for Blanchard
For some reason, it is way harder for me (if even at all possible) to tell the type of pitch thrown in softball versus baseball.
Me too. I think it takes more time with the game
Crap - two big snags by FSU to deny us.
Thought that was a hit. That was a shot.
Dammit. I thought we had two runs there.
that's a damn shame for both Blanchard and Silo with line drives right at infielders that needed good reflexes to make the catches
Great defensive plays by FSU. Still hitting Waldrop really well.
Just keep making contact like that and the runs have to come eventually. I hope.
whoa are you all in a weird feed loop or is that just the online stream?
just went crazy...and now nothing.
Unfortunately it is times like these where I wish I hadn't gone internet only from Comcast. Anyone have a link to an unofficial stream? I don't have an account to use ESPNgo. Thank and GO BLUE!
You can take a nap and watch the free replay on ESPN3.com. I tried that yesterday, even after finding out the score (or perhaps because I saw the score and couldn't believe it).
So, the ESPN commentator just called Hasselbach, Hasselhoff.
scores please. I am traveling now. thx.
0-0 Michigan coming to bat in the bottom of the third.
still scoreless after top of 3. I'm about to hit the road too - good karma to the ladies!!
settle in. 0-0 bottom 3, no baserunners since the 1st.
All tied up 0-0 going to the top of the 4th.
Bottom of the fourth now, still 0-0. Blanchard due up.
some of those strikes look way outside.
It sure looks like Waldrop is getting more calls on the outside than Betsa is. I think that's what Hutch has been chatting with the umps about.
0-0 on to FSU top of 5th
Betsa Walks the leadoff in the 5th
Michigan will win this game and take the Super Regional with a sweep.
1 out 1 on for FSU in the 5th
