Nah, Betsa has been the better pitcher. Rough one today but prior to this she threw 190 pitches in 10 complete innings and held Florida to 2 runs, and tossed a shutout opening day. She also shut down NC State yesterday. And even with the two long balls today (which may have been the result of a blister on her throwing hand), she struck out 11 and would have got the W if the offense hadn't left 15 on base and went 2/14 with RISP.

It's easily Megan Betsa and it's not even really close. Two time reigning B1G Pitcher of the Year.

Not that Hutch wasn't mad with the K, but Falk struck out against a replacement ND pitcher. They went to the pen after they loaded the bases.
Also, 15 LOB, 2/14 with RISP. Can't win games that way.

This is quite inaccurate, detail wise. First off: Aidan*, Monte*, Sobczak*, Vargas*. Sobczak flew out to end the 6th, not struck out. Also, Vargas pinch hit and led off the inning with a foul out. Tera Blanco flew out to end the game. As far as Betsa struggling AGAIN, this is the first time she's had any issue the whole year so I'm not sure that that's referring to.
Regardless, frustrating loss for Michigan. Bases loaded nobody out, and the next two batters strike out. Hutch must have been irate.

USF, 6-4 last night.

Oh I know, just telling you what I know from practice reports. Agree that it would be nice to have an upperclassman move to OF to get some playing time. Unfortunately, Falk isn't fast enough to play OF. Lack of speed you can get away with at C, but not in the outfield.

Blanco plays quality D and is a leader. She'll either be pitching or at 1B. Also, Falk doesn't play OF. Exclusively 1B this year on defense.
|1 week 4 days ago||Third OF will either be||
Third OF will either be Hoogenraad or Courtney Richardson. Swearingen is practicing exclusively in the infield. DH will be Falk, Vargas, or Swearingen (apparently, if she is hitting well).
When Blanco is pitching, 1B will be Falk or Swearingen.

If I understand right, these are stemming from issues of character. If they don't have the character to stick around at MSU, they sure don't have the character to play at Michigan.

Jack Dunaway is Carter's very real older brother who plays for Michigan. Ace just mixed up the first names.

Dude, have you heard of "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?" No need to be an ass towards a 17 year old kid who wants to come play for Michigan.

This is a bad, bad thread. Not a good look.

As someone who knows Hutch - if she didn't mean that and believe it, she damn well wouldn't say it.

MGoBlog and r/cfb. I really enjoy the community over there, they do a lot of cool things.

As someone with less than 1000 MGoPoints - you should need 1000 to start new topics. Some of these are going to land me in the hospital with brain damage.

Yeah man, I got you, I guess I just fail to see the point in projecting 68 wins down the road and looking past this season into an unknown future when we're in the middle of what could be the season of the century as it stands so far. We're at the tail end of a rivalry week where, for the first time in a decade, we're feeling supremely confident in our chances tomorrow.
I could also ask you why you're worried about the future when you have no influence on the future. Heck, if you apply that attitude to everything, why are we even on this site? Nobody here has any influence on what happens on the field.
Although, great speech! I'm certainly going to shake the shit out of my keys and eat some nachos with some extra gusto this weekend.

Can we get more of these articles? Like, a lot more? One of the best pieces on a site full of great pieces. Absolutely phenomenal work, Adam.

Forgot about that game vs. the Pride. They played them pretty close, I know Romo was out and they only had like half their players but it was still a young college team against a pro outfit.

Yep, scrimmages. So far they've played a tournament in Traverse City against CMU, WMU, and SVSU, as well as a home and home against MSU. All wins so far.

Blanco and Crockett have been splitting pitching duties. Hoogenraad and Peters (freshman and sophomore respectively) have been getting most of the run in LF and RF respectively with Christner in CF. Sobczak has taken over at C. Canfield stepped in for Romero at 2B. Team was a little lethargic yesterday, sluggish offense and Blanco gave up a couple of bombs to MSU.

I hope not. Seems like such a genuinely good kid, and you can tell he LOVES Michigan.

That blue shirt with the maize sleeves and pocket...yikes. I like the rest though.

If I read right, it's Anne Curzan, faculty liaison to athletics and linguistics (I think?) professor at M. She was a guest lecturer for one of John U. Bacon's classes while I was a student. Awesome lady, fascinating speaker.

I'm pretty happy with our current RB commits. Give me those three, and only take a 4th if it's Carr or Harris. I'd hate to see someone like Taylor crowded out because the kid seems to have such a great attitude and loves M so goshdarn much.

He's the source. umbig11 has some kind of inside access to the program, so if you see anything from him, take it as legit.

It boggles my mind why people want to play for that guy. He doesn't impress me as a coach.
