|1 hour 34 min ago||I feel like we will play well against #9 Baylor tonight||
and grab another top 10 win..(Fingers crossed) yesterday will be a blip on the radar moving forward..I think so far its pretty clear that Florida and Michigan are the two best teams in the country with Oregon nipping at the heels for #3....I wont jinx us but I think we are going to have a phenomenal rest of the season..Our extremely Difficult Non-conference schedule will give us a very strong RPI..we are 6-0 on the road against top 25 teams..0-3 neutral site against top 25 with possibility of picking up a win against #9 Baylor tonight...that would make us 7-3 against ranked opponents....we could improve that if Minny stays ranked later on in season...All in all a GREAT start..we had Florida on the ropes TWICE and if we face them at the World Series that will only help motivate this team later on...Baylor is a VERY important game tonight!..
GO BLUE..BEAT BAYLOR
|2 hours 17 min ago||Its all kinda of meaningless||
because in the end the toothless NCAA will cave in ala Penn St and restore everything..
to me in Penn St case whats the real punishment if all your going to do is reverse it?
Im sure eventually Syracuse will petition to have everything reinstated and the NCAA will cave. and yet Michigan still wont restore its Final Four banners... However I did notice at the Final 4 in Atlanta which I attended, when introducing the teams the announcer included those as number of Final 4 appearnces for Michigan so theres that...
|2 hours 23 min ago||This sounds almost to good to be true||
but hoping and praying it sticks..Amazing work if it holds true!!!
|4 hours 26 min ago||I just want this NIGHTMARE||
to be over...This has been one of the most frsustrating seasons I can remember in awhile.This team has collased at the end of the first half and end of the game over and over and over and over again..Turnovers, missed opportunities, missed gimmies, LONG scoring droughts so many times you just sat there asking yourself "WHAT WERE YOU THINKING"
I LOVE John Belien and many will argue that the close games as BAD as we were are indications of of what a great coach he is..I kinda disagree...To lose so many close cames repeately shows we didnt make much imporvement in that area throughout the season, having said that hes earned a pass this year and the experience all the youngins got will come back and payoff next year. One thing we HAVE to improve on and improve drastically on is HOW TO CLOSE OUT GAMES AND GET THE BALL INBOUNDS....
one or two more games and this ugly season will be over and done with....
its been a big dissapoinment with flashes of "what might be" thrown in
|21 hours 21 min ago||Unfortunately||
This is the sad reality for most who leave early..They have family and agents who only see $$$$$$$$ signs and make them believe they are Locks in the NBA but the harsh reality is most dont last a year maybe two
|21 hours 30 min ago||And as soon as I say it||
Disaster!!!..WOW looking like a Doubleheader Loss..Who wouldve thunk.. back to earth and reality...Baylor tommorow is going to be difficult too..This will hurt somewhat seeding wise but as long as we are top 8 were good and I cant see us going below the 8 line this year...
Guess the pressure just caught up
|21 hours 34 min ago||Dang||
Looking like another late game collapse against Florida..Going to take some defense to get out of this mess
|22 hours 5 min ago||What is it about Florida?||
We just seem snake bitten..now 4-3...if we lose another end of game walk off to them Im going to Scream...we are DUE to beat these guys SOMETIME!!!!
|23 hours 42 min ago||Well thats a heartbreaker||
Tough way to lose a game...Missed their chance in the 6th....Bats better wake up against Florida..would be a bad day to lose two after the Hot start...
|1 day 19 min ago||Drats||
Missed opportunity..Blanco grounds out..Im kinda surprised Hutch keeps her in the cleanup spot..while shes been adequate she hasnt really been effective in the 4 spot..well see how it plays outh though
|1 day 23 min ago||Romero intentionalyl walked based loaded||
Blanco up...crucial at bat
|1 day 28 min ago||Rally Time||
2 on 1 out,,Chrisnter up Romero on deck..Come on Blue..Blast it!
|1 day 33 min ago||Betsa gets out of a Jam||
Hopefully that will spark momentum and the bats here in the 6th
|1 day 58 min ago||Bats are struggling||
Looks like we have a nailbiter brewing
|1 day 1 hour ago||KBA||
just isnt getting the job done,,NO REASON UM shouldnt be a quality program..None..We are just STUCK in this annual WNIT status...time for another change?
|1 day 2 hours ago||Team completely Unprepared||
last game against Ill and this game complete DEBACLE....thats on the coach
|2 days 15 hours ago||Whats MOST Frustrating||
This makes about 10 games this team has CHOKED down the stretch...They could have EASILY won 19-21 games and been a NCAA Toruney lock ..Instead they will not even make the NIT which is completely embarassing coming from a NCAA title game and Elite 8 appearance...Other programs seem to be able to sustain 10-15 years of straight NCAA appearances and just reload...why cant we?
|2 days 16 hours ago||6 Point lead /20 Seconds||
and you CHOKE? SHAME on this team and coaching staff...SHAME
|2 days 16 hours ago||CHOKE...DOUBLE CHOKE||
and Triple CHOKE...
How man times can one team CHOKE in a single season...Im sorry but thats about 10 games this year that this team has Choked down the stretch..Blame it on youth if you have to..but at some point its coaching.
|4 days 19 hours ago||Projecting Ahead||
Realize this is early BUT with Michigans very tough non-conference scheduling we are setting ourselves up very nicely for hosting Super Regionals ,with a very high seed and a easier Super Regional opponent....with Road sweeps of Florida St, Alabama and Arizona ST already in the books our RPI and SR hosting is in very good shape...If we can somehow get Florida and Baylor next week we will be in EXCELLENT position.
I know theres alot of softball left and we dont want to get to far ahead of ourselves but these wins are the difference between Hositng Super Regionals and not...There are very few teams that will be able to match our non-con schedule let alone our road record..
KEEP IT UP LADIES!!! we can always count on Softball to do us Proud...
|4 days 21 hours ago||WHEW!!!! that was close||
Wagner and Ramirez save the day!!!
|4 days 22 hours ago||SWEET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!||
|4 days 22 hours ago||Yeah I am too||
basically worthless but I thought it was because Im overseas
|6 days 2 hours ago||Looks like MAAR||
has hit the freshman wall and Irvin doing his typical disappearing act
|6 days 2 hours ago||Last 2 mins of half||
how many times this year have we seen Mich come unglued the last 2 mins of the first half? Youd think by now that would be fixed!
|6 days 18 hours ago||PS ...||
In case you didnt know the ASU site has the radio broadcast so tommorows game is on the radio..just go to ASU site and youll find the link
|6 days 18 hours ago||Whew!!!!||
got a little nerve wracking there at the end...Great Win on the road against a ranked team and national power....The team keeps rolling!!!!! now lets SWEEP ASU tommorow!!
|6 days 23 hours ago||On the other hand||
In SB generally speaking the more at bats the better the hitters get...If thats the PLOT it could backfire big time
|6 days 23 hours ago||We may be about to witness it today||
I mean its only the first inning....Geesh...kinda feel sorry for Toledo
|6 days 23 hours ago||Make it 6 HOME RUNS||
15-0 I wonder if this is a NCAA Record?
