We just have to put the ball in play. First Nebraska let Florida have a big inning due to fielding miscues then Florida returned the favor in the 7th inning.

Drisenga (sp?) gotta be one tonight. And we need some offensive to come alive. They have been playing tight for three games now. Good abs and find a couple extra base hits to push us over the edge.

Driesenga needs to bring her A game. I'd say five ASU runs is the cutoff for a good chance for Michigan to pull this out, unless Dallas Escobedo goes into serious beast mode. If that happens, M is in trouble. Thankfully she's not good about keeping balls in the park if you can actually connect with them.

Don't like Michigan's chances of winning it all. Even if we win our next two games, it would set up a rematch with Oklahoma, where we would have to beat them twice. Still, love CWS and will be watching and rooting for the maize and blue!

Isn't there that weird thing with switching backers after one of these games?

I know if we pull it out tonight we would face Washington tomorrow which is in Tennessee's bracket. So if we win tonight and then tomorrow wouldn't we face Tennessee in order to get to the finals?

Obviously first thing's first with ASU coming up.

Once again, nebraska softball is fucking us over. 

If Michigan wins tonight/early AM, they're going to be exhausted tomorrow at the possibility of playing two games. Or 3 games in less than 24 hours.

Ok, I'm watching the last Game of Thrones episode while I'm waiting so I don't have to do it tomorrow.

Florida and Nebraska, you're straight up ridonculous.
