We took Caris over him, not Spike. The feeling is the same, though.

Final was 7-1. Game was called when the rain started up again.

This site used to be so good...
|1 year 28 weeks ago||I'll take that bet||
International tie breaker bastardizes the game and there's no way they would ever bring it in for the World Series. This is what softball is all about. Why ruin a great game like this by going to the ITB?!

Wagner got the W.

Why wouldn't you just wait until the start of the next inning and put in a pinch-runner at 2nd base?
|2 years 10 weeks ago||Michigan softball||
Not enough fake points to start my own post, but the Michigan softball team beat the NPF all-star team tonight. This is only the second loss for the NPF all star team in it's three year history of playing college squads. Freshman shortstop (and, by the looks of her bio, STUD) Sierra Romero hit a two-run HR in the fifth as Michigan came back from a 2-0 deficit.

Are there people that think this is a good chant under any circumstance?
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Same pitcher||
can't get the win and save.
|2 years 30 weeks ago||Not quite||
One need only look at the batting averages to see how inaccurate that is. Softball is all about speed and putting pressure on the defense, especially at this level. Much better than fielding a groundball, pounding the ball into the glove five times and still getting the runner by 3 steps, in my opinion.

Florida booted three of its best players off the team yesterday. Helps to explain their loss.

Do you have a link for that 50% rejected stat? I'd love to be able to use that one.
|3 years 9 weeks ago||Still some available||
I was just able to get 2 together at 1045 this morning.
|3 years 19 weeks ago||Thread Hijack - UM Flint Student Tickets||
I've done some Googling but haven't been able to find much info on whether UM Flint studentts are eligible for student tickets and what the cutoff date is? Any UM Flinters that can help me out?
Thanks in advance.

Don't take yourself too seriously and remember, IT'S JUST AN INTERNET MESSAGE BOARD WE'RE TALKING ABOUT. Sheesh.
|3 years 30 weeks ago||The camera is off-center||
I wish they'd put it directly behind the pitcher in dead-center so you could get a better idea of where some of these pitches really are.

I was going to ask why the OP stated that he WAS a Michigan lean? Has something changed with that?
|3 years 37 weeks ago||M loses Game 2 in 8||
Gave up a solo bomb with one out in the top half of the 8th. Got the leadoff batter on base to start the bottom half but couldn't push her across. First loss in the BIG.
|3 years 37 weeks ago||Game 2 going to extras||
Just a quick update on game 2...Michigan fought back from 2-0 and 4-2 deficits and knotted the score at 4 with 2 outs in the bottom of the 7th inning, with the 4th run scoring on an IU error. They're in the 8th now.
|3 years 42 weeks ago||Competition||
Agreed, the competition we've played to date is nowhere near what we've been seeing during the pre-season road trips over the last couple of years. With the Big 10 down and no attractive in-season OOC matchups...well, I hope it doesn't come back to haunt us come tournament time. With the tournament featuring 64 teams and no real strong squads in the Midwest, we won't have much trouble advancing out the regional, but I'd like to see a few top flight games added to the schedule later on to get the girls a little more "battle tested".
Having said all of that...softball always comes down to who's in the circle, and as long as we have #7 out there we have a punchers chance against anybody.

Tolmichfan beat me to my answer of people waiting to see what Brian thinks before forming their own opinions. Sometimes this place is groupthink at its worst.
Also, the "Rome" nature the site takes on when the "clones" start regurgitating things like GERG!!! or MINOR RAGE, for example.
I think what 03 Blue 07 says has a lot of merit.
|3 years 44 weeks ago||Well, you know what they say...||
Half the world is straight and free, and the rest are SAE's!
|4 years 1 week ago||Tired legs||
I think Appling and Payne's offseason activities may have left them with tired legs, explaining the loss of that step so far. If they can keep themselves out of the women's dorms, they'll be fine as the season wears on.
|4 years 4 weeks ago||Interestingly enough...||
The cheating accusations seem to mirror some of the rumblings I hear about why we lost one of our basketball players in the offseason. Got caught cheating 3 times, and finally got shown the door.
|4 years 6 weeks ago||PSU Loss||
That PSU loss also looks a little better now in light of what they did to Northwestern yesterday. I didn't watch any of the game, but I'm working under the assumption that the 35 points they put up was with the walkon QB.
And here's to hoping that loss is made a lot more tolerable by a big Nittany Lion win in their season finale! :)

I joined Rivals not too long ago and remember a comment by someone on the Mgoboard about one of the moderators there being a blatant RR hater. Can anybody bring me up to speed on which it is? I guess I haven't been a member long enough to pick up on any obvious signs.

|4 years 13 weeks ago||UMASS Tickets plentiful?||
I'm taking my two-year old down to his first game tomorrow and I'm working under the asusmption that there will be vast quantities of tickets available at the game below face value. Am I crazy, or am I going to get stuck paying full freight when my son wants to bolt after the first quarter? ;)

My Dad and I made the trip to South Bend as well, and I must say that I was very impressed with the ND fans and ND in general. None of the over-the-top idiocy that you run into in other spots (read: East Lansing, Columbus). I was sporting my "Returning to Glory Since 1993" t-shirt but, because of the weather, it didn't get as much time as it should have.
