|10 weeks 4 days ago||Great work SBW!||
Thanks for a very thorough season preview, and thanks to you and MGoSoftball for always providing such valuable game analysis throughout the year.
Looking forward to watching Team 40 create their own Michigan Softball legacy, starting today at 12:30pm.

I just sent you an email regarding the tickets.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||To define that on a more micro level...||
Ohio State actually went TWO YEARS, yes, TWO YEARS (October 2013 to October 2015) without a offensive holding call in BIG TEN play.
In other words, in the 2014 season they had ZERO holds called against them in B1G games.
Really? F$%king unbelievable.
P.S.: CAUTION, very ugly video embedded in that link above.
|20 weeks 6 days ago||Notre Dame?||
Just so they can preserve their "Independent" status, they can go 7-5 every season, and then jump into the playoffs at the end of the year?
In my opinion, any future conference realignment structure should force Notre Dame to join the 21st century of college football.

Looking forward to watching Team #40!
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Correction...||
Kirby Hocutt (chairman of the committee) said the margin between Washington and MICHIGAN (NOT Colorado) is "razor thin".
|21 weeks 1 day ago||I understand that points are credited for....||
a Top 10 win, that is why I was suggesting a "bonus" weighting based on the fact that a given win is over a P5 conference champion.
Agree on your point about the committee...it will be interesting to watch it play out tonight and Sunday.
|21 weeks 1 day ago||Thanks Maizer.||
Great work on this.
One question/suggestion: How about assigning some amount of "bonus points" for a win over a P5 conference champion?
Not to be a complete homer here, but it seems to me that should hold a significant amount of weight.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||Understood, however....||
a lot of that yardage came on plays where the DBs were in a position to make the play but just did not turn around to do so, and, when Delano Hill fell down on one route. If Stribling and Thomas turn around on those plays, they have a PBU and maybe even a pick.
|22 weeks 3 days ago||One correction....||
The Apple Cup is on Friday the 25th at 3:30pm EST.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||Wow. The Maryland player with a huge foul in the box....||
and no call! WTF.
F&#k the Maryland players talking shit to the crowd.
|25 weeks 3 days ago||WTF was that call to award them the free kick?||
It looked like a VERY clean tackle to me.
|27 weeks 16 hours ago||Greg Mattison||
I have a few family/friend/football camp connections to him, and even though I am just a periodic acquaintance, he has always remembered me. In my few conversations with him, I have been so impressed with his genuine, down-to-earth, and engaging nature.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Ugh.||
Wisco takes the set 15 - 13 and the match 3 - 2.....
|27 weeks 4 days ago||13 All!||
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Wisco up 13 - 11.||
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Wisco up 10 - 8 in the 5th Set....||
Note: Play to 15 in the 5th Set.
Let's go ladies!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Yes! Going to a 5th set!||
Michigan wins Set 4 25 - 20!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||M up 14 - 7 in Set 4.||
Let's go ladies!
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Game is on BTN Plus for those who have it....||
Here is the link to the Gametracker:
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Love Griese, but...||
I have to agree. He has been WAY off on calls lately, and missed many today.
|27 weeks 4 days ago||Terrible coaching decisions by Dave Doeren and staff....||
Bad play calls and bad clock management in the last two series.
Run the ball up the middle and just keep pushing the pile forward. You might score a TD, but if not, make the kick an "extra point" at max for your struggling kicker. Also, you quite possibly force Clemson to use their last timeout earlier, as opposed to giving them a chance to ice the kicker.
|28 weeks 3 days ago||Miami Hurricanes||
That display of blatantly dirty cheap shots on the FSU QB and their typical classless "The U" fan behavior is why I never want to see that program good again.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Yes...||
While the team did beat UNC back in August during the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, it was all UNC in the 2nd half today.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||All UNC in the 2nd half||
UNC scores four goals on penalty corners in the 2nd half to win 5 - 1.
|29 weeks 3 days ago||Now 3 - 1 UNC....||
UNC scores two goals in a 3 minute span, one on a penalty corner, and one on a fast break attack and deflection by the UNC player that caught the M goalkeeper off her line.
|44 weeks 1 day ago||Congrats to the UM women rowers!||
And regarding the safety of the water quality at the rowing venue, also known as the "Lagoa", the test run last summer where FISA held the Junior World Rowing Championships was not good; 11 rowers and 4 coaches from the US Team alone contracted various illnesses that they attributed to contact with the water:
|46 weeks 2 days ago||No doubt about that.||
My question was somewhat rhetorical; she is a phenomenal pitcher.
I just wish somebody, anybody, amongst the great bats in the line-up, could have figured her out.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Me too.||
I woke up this morning thinking about all of the "what ifs".
It is going to be very difficult to watch OU vs. Auburn, knowing that it should have been Michigan playing for the NC and a storybook ending for a great senior class.
|46 weeks 2 days ago||Great summary charblue.||
One point of note as I am not sure if you were implying that Christner is a senior or not by grouping her with Susalla, but she is only a junior this season.
From all accounts she is a great team leader. Hopefully she will get her bat back in to the full time production as she had in 2015.
