|1 week 2 days ago||And Michigan doesn't even||
And Michigan doesn't even play Goldie Gopher in B10 play which makes no sense to me as to how the B10 would make a schedule with Michigan and Minnesota not playing. So that is even less room for error in B10 play.
Michigan does have some opportunities in the Mary Nutter and the Judi Garman Classics to get some nice wins against some ranked opponents. I think you even were shaky on saying that Michigan would host a Super in your preview but I would expect Michigan to host a Regional.
I didn't watch or pay attention to the game but looking at the box score I would like to see a little more production from the 6-9 spots and turn the line up over. I am sure Hutch is trying to figure out if Abby is best leading off or at the 9 spot where she has been the past few years.
On a completely random note, I swear Groenewegen has been at Minnesota forever haha. It seems like we have faced her for 5+ years now.

Better to learn from these game situations now than later in the season like the Big Ten tourney or the NCAA tourney.

Weren't the jerseys and shorts designed to honor the fab five? You would have thought that the team would have worn black shoes and socks earlier if not the whole year.

This situation reminds of Lee Corso and when he returned to college GameDay.
|12 weeks 2 hours ago||I actually agree with you mostly||
I agree with your post for the most part. Would I say that he is deserving? No. I dont think he had enough "wow" plays especially down the stretch. But would I say that he is worthy of consideration for the Heisman. Absolutely. When you watch him you can comfortably say "yea, this guy is one of the best players in college football. I think there is a lot of outrage with people saying he derserves to be in NYC vs worthy of being in NYC. I don't think anyone thinks he will win the trophy but he certainly is worthy of being invited. Maybe I am just looking at this all wrong and people will think I am crazy.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||Well some guy named Charles||
Well some guy named Charles Woodson was a lockdown CB who took away one side from the field and I would say that it helped the team a lot. Haha.
I am not a defensive coach by any means but I would guess having a CB like Lewis isnt a bad thing at all and I think people will really realize how much we miss him next year.
|12 weeks 6 days ago||I would even go as far as||
I would even go as far as arguing that Peppers might not be the "best" LB on this Michigan team. While I think Peppers is very derserving but I would say that he isnt even one of the top 3 maybe even 5 defensive players on this team.

What are the chances that the AD sends out an email to people who have less than the 200 priority points about requesting B10 championship game tickets?

Losing to a rival at home and then a possible concussion issue the days following...this sounds all to familiar to me.

I want at least a 50 point win so I can possibly go to Ruth's Chris again and get half off my food.
|19 weeks 6 days ago||Has anyone been there this||
Has anyone been there this week for the promotion? I heard that even though they said that they are fully booked with reservations that there were a lot of empty tables. Also I heard that they would only honor the promotion if you had a reservation.
Can anyone confirm? Thanks

They also do this with the UCONN's women's basketball team every year it seems like by asking if they would stand a chance against any mens team. Really stupid IMO.

My friend is the band director at Alpena High School and is a huge Michigan fan. Will have to ask him what the deal is with incorporating tempation into the music.
|27 weeks 1 day ago||I saw on Angelique||
I saw on Angelique Chengelis's twitter a picture of Michigan history with the AP poll including preseason rank, vote point totals, first place votes, and final rank. It was interesting to see how people viewed previous Michigan teams in the preseason. Like in 2012, Michigan got one first place vote which looking back...womp womp but I guess I can kind of understand if someone wanted to rank Michigan #1 in the preseason after 2011. But it was crazy to me that the 2012 got 1 first place vote but so many teams before 2012 didnt get one vote.
|28 weeks 12 hours ago||For the past however many||
For the past however many years they have been doing this, Gerry and Howard have always said that Michigan has a ton of talent on both sides of the line every year. Enough talent to make them top 2/3 in the B10. Which might be true in terms of individual talent but obviously it didnt work as a group for the O line.
They also said that Jake Ryan would be a breakout player/fresmen to watch way back in the day. It is just good to hear from players and coaches during preseason camp. August is the worst for me since football is so close yet so far and everyone is itching for football to start.

One sole has the block M and the other sole has the jumpman logo. The shoes are the same on both sites.
|38 weeks 22 hours ago||And people seem to forget||
And people seem to forget that she started her career at SS and ended up at 2B which means she was an All American in two different positions during her career. That is unheard of these days. Also you can't put it in a stat but her softball IQ was just off the charts. She was such a great base runner in terms of knowing when to advance and stealing bases.
Maybe I am biased because the season ending way too soon is still fresh in my mind but I can't remember a Michigan athlete who "deserved" to win a national title more than she did. Maybe its not far to say that in general but Romo was a really special player.
I know I will appreciate her more(if thats possible) next year when I dont see her on the field and I am sure a lot of people will.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||When you get to the WCWS||
When you get to the WCWS rankings don't mean jack shit and Hutch preaches that to her team. Hell, rankings don't matter when you are in regionals or super regionals. If you play your best softball in the WCWS than you have a shot to win the national title and if you don't than you go home early. There are no favroites so to say that Michigan "choked" as the favorite is just stupid. They unfortunately didn't play well last night and didn't hit today. When the margin of error is so small these things can't happen if you want to win the national title.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Dude, its not like schools||
Dude, its not like schools choose who they sign and the student has to sign. Michigan recruited Sydney but she decided to build her own legacy at Oklahoma and not follow in Romo's footsteps and possibly be in her shadow her whole career. That is perfectly fine and to be honeset I don't blame her.

Betsa has pitched her heart out all season. You obviously didnt see her emotion last night when she was pitching against LSU. looked like a competitor to me.
|38 weeks 1 day ago||Really dude? How is this embarrassing?||
Really dude? How is this embarrassing?
Michigan has made the WCWS 3 out of the past 4 years. Michigan is competitive every year in terms of making it to the WCWS. What more do you want?

No I don't know. All we know is that Falk made a bad throw that cause the error and allowed the run to score. Only the michigan coaches know what the game plan was there.
Also I respect the announcers tremendously. Especially Mendoza for what she is doing for baseball. But they call the game as it unfolds a lot of the time IMO. What if Abby makes a great play and blocks the ball and prevent the run from scoring. What are they saying then?
|38 weeks 2 days ago||How you do you know the||
How you do you know the coaches told her to not throw it? Maybe with zero outs and things not going well the coaches thought that they could get an out without giving up a run. I am sure they have talked about a gameplan with 1st and 3rd situations and I am going to guess that Falk looked in the dugout to see what the coaches called. Maybe they had a play where Abby steps in front to cut the ball off. From the replay I saw it wasn't a straight double steal because the runner on 3rd didnt go right away when Falk threw. It was when Falk had the bad throw to 2nd that allowed the runner to go home. Hence why she got the error. I also never said it was the coaches fault. It was a bad throw by Falk and she derseved the error.
Also I am sure if it was a decent throw and got the runner out with the runner holding at third the announcers would have praised Michigan for a great play when things werent going well.
|38 weeks 2 days ago||If you are talking about the||
If you are talking about the double steal in the 1st inning its not a horrible decision if the coaches told her to throw it. The throw was not very good but if the coaches told her to throw it to 2nd than you cant call it a horrible decision on Falk's part.
Obviously the bats havent been clutch and they will need to be if they are going to comeback esp against Parker who is 1st team All American.
Betsa is just off tonight whether that be nerves, back injury, or whatever. When you hit the batter on the very first pitch thats pretty bad. Betsa also pitched against OK when they met earlier in the year and only lasted 3 innings and gave up 6 runs. Michigan also didn't face Parker so this is their first time seeing her.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||We might not see another||
We might not see another player of her caliber at Michigan anytime soon. I really hope they retire her number because she deserves every bit of having her number retired.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||That was a great read. I did||
That was a great read. I did not know about her brother and that was really really sad to read. I also did not know she was quite the troublemaker but I guess I can see that.
I dont know who is given credit for starting riots in East Lansing but for all I know it was Hutch who started the tradition.
|38 weeks 5 days ago||I think WD means in terms of||
I think WD means in terms of accomplishments but I might be wrong. I am with WD and think she is top 5 and arguably top 3.
|38 weeks 6 days ago||I guess by underrated I mean||
I guess by underrated I mean that people will naturally think of all the football, hockey, basketball players, Barry Larkin, and Jim Abbott and not mention Romo. But I might be wrong.
She is def top 5 for me...maybe top 3 but that would be a interesting debate. Haha
