|12 hours 12 min ago||While I agree||
that Emma Johnson has the 1.02 ERA, it needs to be taken in context. Kent State has played only 2 ranked teams (4 games total): Us and Central Florida. They split with CFU and us so not a team known for a tough Out-of-conference-schedule..
So while the data is what it is, Kent State does not play any ranked teams. Iowa has played in 11 games against ranked teams. They played #1 Florida twice (but lost) and lost 2 other games by 1 run (#2 Oregon and #6 La-Laf.)
So Emma Johnson is a very good pitcher, no doubt; however, she has not pitched against Top-tiered teams like Iowa has. So in a 3-game series, it is anyone's guess as to which team would win, but I would rather play Kent State in a 3 game series rather than Iowa in 3 game series.
|18 hours 7 min ago||Another great win||
for the good guys. 8-0 mercy rule win in 5 innings.
|18 hours 11 min ago||Mandy Gardner was a||
highly rated recruit for Coach Hutch. She just could not adjust to this level of ball qucik enough. She was the heir-apparent to Dorian Shaw at first.
She transferred to Maryland after a very poor Freshman season. She was my pick for Big Ten Player of the year in her Senior Year.
|18 hours 19 min ago||The foot MUST||
maintain contact with the pitching rubber through the delivery. The foot may drag behind after the ball is released; however, the foot muct maintain contact with the ground.
Good call my the Umpires.
|18 hours 36 min ago||Speed kills||
Abby stretches a single into a double. Then advances to third and scores during the next AB. Now 5-0 us.
|18 hours 42 min ago||The Kent St||
loss is really bad looking back on it now. Yea the Iowa loss is bad but not nearly as ugly as Kent St's loss.
|18 hours 55 min ago||Hard hit||
for an IF and another run, 4-0.
|18 hours 57 min ago||The pitcher has some||
HUGE nads to shake off the coach's pitch call. Especially when she is having a bad day. As a Coach, you hate to see this.
Bases loaded walk give us a 3-0 lead.
|19 hours 1 min ago||Maryland has a South Paw||
in the cirlce. There are not many lefty softball pitchers in the game today.
|1 day 18 hours ago||I would agree||
because Auburn and Alabama are on the same level academically and athletically. Hell they even poison each others trees down there.
However, this is MSU we are talking about. They are not a real rival to us but we are their main rival. So the rivalry comparison Bama/Auburn and M/MSU is not a good comparision in my opinion.
|3 days 15 hours ago||thanks for||
the updates. im at a funeral and M SB is the only thing keeping me sane.
|4 days 16 hours ago||Come on man???||
what's wrong with having a girlfriend and a wife on the side?
|4 days 16 hours ago||I would||
have NEVER guessed that.
|6 days 18 hours ago||And that is the ball game 7-1 us||
We play MSU on Tuesday and CMU on Wednesday, both at home. Next weekend we travel to Maryland for 3.
|6 days 18 hours ago||Romo singles||
with the bases loaded and Swearengen scores. Then Kelly forces a 3-2 walk for another run. Now 7-2 us.
|6 days 19 hours ago||In the top of the 4th||
Indiana gets a based loaded single to score one but nothing more. Its now 2-1 us.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Kelly drives in Abby||
for a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the 3rd.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Romo leads the Big Ten||
in On base % with a whopping .660. The #2 player is Nikki Stokes (NEB) at .548. That is a full .100 points between the leader and the #2 player. Amazing.......
|6 days 20 hours ago||Romo still leads||
the Big Ten in BA at .486. #2 is Megan Blank (Iowa) at .440. Kelly Christner leads in HR with 17. #2 is Nicole Evans (ILL) has 16 and #3 Romo has 15.
|6 days 20 hours ago||In other B1G Action||
Minny took it to MSU 7-1. Nebraska is at NW in a 0-0 tie in the 3rd.
|6 days 20 hours ago||At the end of 2,||
still 1-0 us.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Silo leads off||
with a HR in the 1st.
|6 days 20 hours ago||Game 2 has Megan in the||
circle. Taylor Swearingen is the DP in the #8 slot.
|6 days 21 hours ago||First Game Final 3-0 us||
Game 2 to start shortly.
|6 days 22 hours ago||Romo goes deep||
now 3-0 us.
|1 week 16 hours ago||As previously mentioned||
Minny beat MSU 8-4. Nebraska defeated NW 10-2 in 5 innings. So as most of us predicted in last week's Open Thread; Nebraska helped us out today. Hopefully the Huskers can take all 3 from NW.
This leaves us and Minny at the top for the remainder of the season. We would have to drop 2 conference games and Minny lose none the remainer of the season; because we hold the tie-breaker with Minny.
|1 week 16 hours ago||Megan's line||
2 runs (1 ER) off 4 hits. She had 12, count them 12 Ks and 4 BB. Megan faced 24 batters and K's 12 for a 50% "kill rate". That is outstanding.
The 4 walks really dont bother me so much as Megan was trying to paint the corners and get the Hoosiers to siwng at bad pitches.
|1 week 16 hours ago||SB Mercies Indiana||
11-2 in 5 innings. Great game and very good base running for the ladies.
|1 week 17 hours ago||Silo doubles||
in Sbonek, now 11-2.
|1 week 17 hours ago||After 4 1/2||
still 10-2 us.
