|3 days 17 hours ago||I had 2||
daughters on the same "cycle". I had "hell week" every single month. They were going after each other, then getting "bitchy" with Mom and me.
|3 days 17 hours ago||We have||
time to get them healthy for May.
|6 days 10 hours ago||State defeats Virginia 60-54||
in case anyone cares.
|6 days 10 hours ago||Another key point to||
keep an eye on is the offensive efficiency. We typically will score more runs than we have hits. This is critical because we will push the runners who reached base on walks. This will keep opposing pitches and coaches thinking; "should I walk them or try to pitch to them?"
|6 days 11 hours ago||This has been the||
most productive Freshman class that I can remember since I started following M Softball in 1983. What a great class for Coach Hutch.
|6 days 11 hours ago||The offense certainly||
gets most of the accolades. However, our pitching is doing great too. We will give up less than 10 hits total in 3 games vs OSU. That is some fine pitching to say the least.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Great observation.||
She has certainly filled Lauren's shoes bigtime.
|6 days 11 hours ago||Great point MGB Mom||
No sympathy for Buckeyes ever.
|6 days 11 hours ago||I stand corrected.||
I could come up with several other great names for her.
|1 week 1 day ago||The scary thing||
is that she may have her best year this season. She will certainly lead the team in walks. I will be watching her on base % this year. It should be top 5 Nationally. She is awesome.
|1 week 1 day ago||My original opinion||
has always been no names on the back. Then I see this. Maybe TacoPants is acceptable after all. I have yet to buy my #4 jersey but I will.
|1 week 3 days ago||We had||
12 hits, 2 by Romo and 3 by Kelly, both hit dingers too. Tera had 3 RBIs and pitched 2 innings as well. Overall a nice tune up prior to the Big Ten season.
|1 week 6 days ago||Kent St. gets nothing||
in the 7th inning. That is a 4-1 victory for the good guys. We will certainly drop one spot, maybe 2 in next week's poll. The loss yesterday was not a good look for us. We need to go into the Big Ten strong and lose one at the most.
We play Bowling Green on Wednesday before we travel to Columbus for the start of the B1G season.
|1 week 6 days ago||Last inning||
there was an unusual play. Abby in the box and Mary Sbonek stealing second. The catcher's throw hits Abby. The home plate umpire calles Mary out at second.
|1 week 6 days ago||Kelly goes deep and long||
|1 week 6 days ago||Still 1-1 in the 6th.||
Top of the order up for the good guys.
|1 week 6 days ago||Good points||
however, I think we get back on track. If we drop 2 out of 3 to Kent St.......Yikes. We can say good by to the Supers for sure.
|2 weeks 7 hours ago||The first game||
is the "egg" that I spoke about earlier. I just did not think it would happen the very first home game. the second game got us back on track. Lets make sure we close strong tomorrow.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You are probably||
right about the fact that voters are looking only at records; especially in the USA Softball poll where we dropped 2 spots. However, in the coaches poll, we remained tied for 3rd with LSU. So it looks like some voters gave LSU some of our votes.
It is a little too early to start worrying about polls. The regular season has a way of shaking this out. As long as we do not lay down at any point; we will be fine.
We do have a weak regular season schedule so any prolonged rough patch will certainly cause us to drop significantly in the polls. I just do not see this happening with all 3 pitchers doing so well.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||I did hear something||
but I would rather not repeat it here until it becomes public. It may or may not be true.
Sara will be just fine but in the meantime, Megan and Haylie can take care of business like you said. We should be hitting on all cylinders when May 1st rolls around and we head into the B1G Playoffs, Regionals and Supers.
|2 weeks 4 days ago||Great points||
I only say 4 loses because we have been known to 'lay an egg" on a few occasions. In recent years, these 'eggs" are early in the season. However this year we have been playing very well without much drama.
Minny is very good this year and since we do not play Nebraska, I think Minny will be our roadblock. Maryland has some good individual players but cannot seem to pull it together. PSU always puts up a good fight against us.
So you may end up being right about 3 loses but I would hedge against a sweep in the B1G for us this year.
La-Laf is a great team and has proven themselves over the past few years. However, they are not as deep this year. Also their schedule is a little tougher. They play Baylor and Oregon. This could be 6 loses right here.
