|3 days 2 hours ago||Have any Michigan sports team ever had Wovlerines on the chest?||
I mean other than the hockey jersey with the pictures. It just looks so weird. I'm 90% sure baseball wears Michigan on home and away jerseys, if not just the block M.
I'd probably even like them if they said "Michigan".

Except for that whole working for him thing. That part was normally pretty good. Would work for again!

|4 weeks 2 days ago||I think we're getting into semantics re: format||
Because I agree they should go to the NCAA model as well. If we were a stronger league top to bottom, maybe an 8 team tourney would make sense as a middle table team could conceivable compete in a regional if they were to win (like a 4-6th place SEC team). A 4-6 seed in the B1G would likely be murdered.
I agree completely; you shouldn't be in the tournament unless you expect to compete in the NCAA.

|4 weeks 2 days ago||I hate this format. They||
I hate this format. They have two 4 team brackets playing double elimination, EXCEPT, instead of facing the loser from your bracket possibly again, you get the loser from the other bracket, then a one off winner take all. If you lose in the first round, it's 6 games in 5 days to win it all. That's ludicrous for a college team.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Nationally, there area few||
Nationally, there area few big softball programs in the north, notably Michigan and Northwestern. Baseball is not so much. No team north of Tennessee and East of the Pacific Northwest tends to stay good long any more. Occasionally Louisville or Kentucky have a couple good seasons in a row, but in baseball, those are considered northern teams as well.
I can't explain it in great detail, but I would bet it has to do with quality of pitching. Because the way a baseball is thrown, cold weather is more detrimental. The same thing applies with softball starting pitchers throwing nearly every game where baseball is once a week. The best pitching stays in the south. You want to play where the best competition is to be drafted, so better hitters stay there. That and it's just warmer during the season down there. You also don't have to worry about hectic travel schedules during the school year, so academically, it could be beneficial to play at a place like LSU that only leaves the state of Louisiana when the SEC makes them play road games..
This is probably way over simplified though.

Long story in a nut shell:
Long ago in a far distant commenting system known as HaloScan, I posted anonymously when there were but just a few dozen of us. I changed it. It was formerlyanonymous.
Also, technically Brian dropped my first name in a post one time. It made my psuedonym even less psuedo. Add that a certain college baseball website I wrote BigTen previews for used my real name instead of pen name, and I'd say I'm more pseudo anonymous than formerly anonymous, but that still makes me formerly anonymous, doesn't it?
|4 weeks 2 days ago||They dropped their team in||
They dropped their team in 1991. I want to say it was Title IX related, or at least they claim Title IX (along with baseball being one of the most expensive sports per athelete) has kept them from starting the team back up.
Wisconsin wasn't particularly good historically. They did well in the 40s-50s and a brief blip in the 70s. Minnesota on the other had has historically been a strong program in the B1G. Wisconsin-Milwaukee does have a team in the Horizon League, although they have been threatened with closing the program as well in the last decade.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Texas isn't too big. Never to big.||
Its one of the few Texas metros they havent. They've played in Huntsville & Lubbock recently. I'd consider San Marcos to be the Austin/San Antonio loop. It wouldn't surprise me if they tried to schedule UT-Arlington sometime soon. They're a solid program over the last 10 years.
That said, with the number of California players on the roster, I think Texas may be phasing off the schedule soon. It's been a few seasons since we had multiple Texas players on the roster, and historically, we've scheduled where we have more players so they can play in front of family.

It cost me like eleventy-billion mgopoints in fines when I told the French their food is terrible and lacks texture. Who ever thought the liver of a force fed duck would be a good idea?

I'm still glad you keep up with this. Hopefully we see some more bumps to the front page.
Here's looking at you Brian!
|4 weeks 2 days ago||They do travel back and forth||
Its my understanding that they fly out Thursday night as necessary, then fly back Sunday night, hence most games on Sunday being at 1-ish. They won't play extra innings most Sundays unless both schools have a short commute, which means Michigan could potentially end games in ties.
I'm sure they pack school work for plane trips, not that I'd be able to focus on school while on a plane.
As for the week in March with mid-week games, that's spring break for students anyway.
|4 weeks 2 days ago||Yeah||
I got back from Europe yesterday and it was colder here in Houston than it was in Brussels, which is at an lattitude on par with Winnepeg or Calgary. The world is broken.

Adjusted appropriately. While I read through the whole thing and remembered Nebraska being top 50, it was also before my first Dr Pepper of the day, and I paid no attention to what I was typing.

Stephen F. Austin would clearly decimate Houston Baptist, but only in the name of saving his father Moses Austin from the imprisonment of the HBU campus. Sharpstown area of Houston, most recently seen in a National Geographic Channel episode about modern day prostitution, is about as rough as Mexico City circa the 1820s.

Which way are scoring 11 points:
Are returned PATs even legal in college anymore, or has it all gone like the recovered muffed punt?
